Worth noting the tour is conducted in both Spanish and English... so lots of standing around while the guide repeats the same information in another language. Normally wouldn’t be a problem, but given how cold it was on the tour, it would have been better to move faster with the walking tour and maybe consider conducting separate tours for English and Spanish in future.

Must join this tour if you are in Spain

Love all of it. Salamanca was very beautiful. Avila looks like a fairy tale. It just like being transfered to the old time. Highly recommended for everyone. The quided tour was very good planned. The guide has a lot to tell and we still have time to see the cities by ourselves.

Greatest guide and driver, but organization could be better

The guide was excellent. Driver was very good. But the tour itself felt a bit like “we drive you to the place, so you don’t have to do it yourself”. Would be better to have more guided time in the cities. Plus the tour has been moved, but GetYourGuide automatic email still was sent in the abandoned date to remind about the upcoming tour that was confusing
