David, the guide, was very nice and explained the places very nicely. The coach was great and the driver also was driving very well. We loved the places that we saw. One of the good points of the trip was that we got enough free time to do some shopping and see the local shops on the streets. Wonderful day spent!!!

Irene was an excellent guide who updated us effectively on the History of Avila and Segovia. Was a great trip and would recommend it for nice day trip.Wish we had a little more free time- 30 min more in each city.
