Our guide, Coral, was an absolute delight to spend time with. She gave us a very thorough tour of the different areas in Segovia, including the Jewish quarter, the Plaza Mayor and the Alcazaber. Coral is extremely knowledgable, spoke excellent English, was able to answer all of our questions and recommended 2 excellent restaurants which we thoroughly enjoyed during our stay.

Wonderful experience. Our guide made a beautiful city even more enjoyable!
