What people are saying about Province of Avila

Javi is an excellent guide. He responded to our interests and spent time how we decided. He gave us stunning views of the quaint towns, mountain peaks, rushing rivers, valleys, lakes, and rock formations. We walked at a pace that was comfortable for us and although a few parts were challenging, the experience was very peaceful and relaxing. We shared laughs with Javi along the way and he made our excursion very memorable.

Visiting cities is good. The guide Núvia was very attentive and friendly. The first part of the trip was in Segovia with lunch in the city. The second part was in Ávila, the visit was faster because it is held after lunch and practically everything in the city was closed for their basket after lunch. The bus is comfortable and the journey is smooth.

This was a great tour. Plenty of time to see all the sights. The operator was with us the entire time, with free time for lunch. I would highly recommend it. Warning: lots of steep, uneven walking, so if this is an issue, consider another option.

This tour was a great way to spend the day! The day felt organized and went smoothly. More time to explore would have been nice, but I understand this can't always happen for day-long tours like these.

Absolutely amazing!!!! Exceeded our expectations !!!
