1. Madrid: Avila with Walls and Segovia with Alcazar

Discover the charming towns of Ávila and Segovia on this guided excursion. Visit the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesus, and take a guided tour of Segovia's enchanting castle. Check in at our office in central Madrid 15 minutes in advance of your tour. Leave the city towards Ávila aboard one of our air-conditioned coaches. Our first stop for the day will be at the city of Ávila, one of the best-preserved fortifications in Spain. Follow your guide on a walking tour of the Old Town to discover the impressive history of this city. See Romanesque-style churches, Gothic palaces, and a fortified cathedral dating back to the Middle Ages. Visit the Walls of Ávila and and imagine the stories they have seen through the centuries. Marvel at the fortification and towers, which have granted the city a World Heritage Site status by UNESCO. We will continue the tour to Segovia. On arrival, we will divide in two groups. If you have chosen the option to visit Segovia at your own pace, you will have approximately three hours of free time. The rest of the group will go to the restaurant. Those who have chosen the gastronomic menu will enjoy a gastronomic lunch with roast suckling pig that will not leave you indifferent. People who have not chosen the gastronomic lunch will have a typical courtesy tapa and a drink. After lunch, those who have chosen the tour with monuments will meet again with the guide to start the tour in Segovia. Walk through the old Jewish quarter of the city, visit the outside of the Cathedral and walk towards the Alcazar of Segovia. Enjoy a guided tour inside the castle and marvel at this spectacular fortification. Did you know that its architecture inspired Walt Disney for one of his films? Can you tell us which one? If you have visited Segovia on your own, meet the rest of the group at the agreed time to return to Madrid.

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.

Jorge was very knowledgeable and kind. The whole experience is a most. Avila was impressive with the beautiful wall and Segovia with the Roman aquaduc was amazing.

Beautiful experience, unmissable !!!. In one day you can get to know these two cities with so much history. Very good guide and impeccable driver

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

It would be great if the Segovia tour lasted a little longer
