What people are saying about Alcázar of Segovia

This was easy. The coach ride to and from was comfortable and we loved seeing the aqueduct and the castle in Segovia and then the medieval walled city of Avila with a tasting of a local holiday treat. It was an easy day trip and we were back in time to rest a bit before a tapas tour that evening.

Incredible day of sights and history. Our guide was amazing with information about every city nearly every moment after getting on the bus. Highly recommend for anyone looking for history and views of these amazing cities.

Very well organised, though it is not easy to go around two cities in 9 hours. Our guide Amalia was very good in giving all the information and eveything we asked. We came back tired but satisfied!
