Our guide Hugo was marvellous - speaks good English tells the history well and is also very humorous. Makes the entire trip very interesting. Trip started 15 min late but the journey was good. Bus is very clean n comfortable. Partigularly like the earpiece n audio commentary by Hugo made the trip very rich. Definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting Avila & Sergovia.

Such a brilliant idea. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, saw all the sights without being part of a huge group, clear map and gps allowed the informative narrative to come on at exactly the right time. Highly recommended

This was really fun. All the additional facts and background of the area, without hustling to keep up with a group. We paused when ever we wished. We will choose more of these in the future.

If you love history (I guess everyone does) this tour is a must. Well organised and Hugo our tour leader is full of knowledge

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