Segovia and Avila

Tour departed and arrived at correct time. The guide was very informative and translated between English and Spanish well. However, not enough was given to wander around freely in these places and felt quite rushed.

Segovia and Avila Tour

We are a family of four and we find that bus tours are an effective way to outsource planning: the coordination of what to see and how much time to spend at any site. We met this tour at the VPT office near the Temple of Debod/Parque de Oeste. The tour was on schedule [9:00am-6:00pm] and the bus was comfortable. We were fortunate to have Aranza was our tour guide. She was knowledgeable and friendly. She explained the history of the sites well, provided cultural insights, and kept us on time. We also appreciated her suggestion for a place to have lunch in Segovia. We recommend this tour if you are interested in visiting sights close to Madrid.

Not good

The guide spoke both Spanish and English but always lengthy Spanish elaboration accompanied by a very short English talk. It's not that she was not good but given an impossible job.

I loved both of these cities. It was a pleasure joining this tour. The bus was comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable when it came to the history of these UNESCO world heritage sites. We would have enjoyed more if we were able to climb the walls of Avila or the aqueducts of Segovia but all in all we had a good time.

Tour was combined with a Spanish group

This is a second try that I used aviator and had bad experience. They are resellers of the tours and carry no guarantees about the quality of the information you receive or even guides excitement to spend time with you. Use locals!!!! They work for tips and will go out if their way to please you. This tour was booked for English guide and somehow they moved us together withn another group that spoke only Spanish. The guide (being native) of course preferred to speak in Spanish.. the entire tour we waited after each and every line title presentation for him to translate to us. Needless to say , my teenagers lost their interest and wanted to do nothing with him. When I asked why we are listening in Spanish all the time and waiting for quick Englishvtranslation the guide could not explain. Victor is expensive and reselling tours. Rent a car.. it’s easy and convenient. Get guides in the cities where you want to go. You will not be rushed and get to enjoy local restaurants, shops and see/hear about everything as well. I am done with Viator!!!!

Great tour. The one thing I would change for the one that includes lunch is add option for vegetarian lunch. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of both cities and the history around every site we visited.

Nice place! But just a problem, the tour guide. I choose the English guide, but.....like 80 of her introduction is in Spanish. I think it is because most of ppl in our group are Spanish. However, if u provide the option of English group, u should make sure the quality! still thx.

Just a lovely fun guide on the trip Avila was ok but Segovia v pretty Guide was informative without getting too much into details! It was bilingual so sometimes that is hard as the switch on and off from English to Spanish can be a bit bothersome I hoped it was just English but nonetheless it was a good trip We had a little glitch at the beginning due to a marathon that the compnay probably did not take into account but other than that the drive version there and the lovely towns with their history was well worth a visit
