Waste of time and money!
norbac

This tour was canceled out on me, so they offered me something similar (All-day Toledo & Segovia from Madrid) for the same price. Well, first of all, we spent a lot of time driving to and from the towns (4 hours). In Toledo, the tour was very short and they only gave us an hour to see the cathedral (the actual highlight) AND to return back to the meeting point! So, too short a time frame for such an important site. Then, we drove to Segovia for another hour and a half. Supposedly we were given and hour and a half for lunch but because some people didn't come back in time at Toledo, we lost about 25 minutes right there. Now, the actual attraction to see in Segovia was the alcazar, but once we got there (after a whole hour wasted walking around and chatting about trivial stories from the town), there was only an hour left to see the entire castle and to head back (by 5:00 pm)! That was just ridiculous! We only had half hour to see the alcazar (castle), which was the biggest highlight of Segovia! And the other half hour was spent on walking back to the meeting point, which was very far away. Next, the tour was supposed to return at 7:00 pm, but the tour guides were in such a hurry to return to Madrid as if the whole world was coming to an end if they didn't make it back in time--for their supper(?). In addition, the guide we got stuck with (Belen), just kept babbling stupid factoids about the cities and their history, some of them quite inaccurate, as if she had memorized the top ten facts off of Google or something. All in all, I'd avoid this tour company like the plague! You can probably save a lot of money and hassle by doing it on your own. After all, both tour guides were useless!

Disappointed - waste of time for non-Spanish speakers

This tour looked like a good deal - it was covering 3 cities in a single tour... And it might of been good if we had a different tour guide... But we've got Minerva, who didn't like to speak in English and therefore most of the tour was in Spanish. She was talking 5-7 min in Spanish, 1-2 min in English. The majority was English speaking and still most of the time we were waiting for our turn for those 1-2 minutes. She wasn't giving information all the time, we were moving from the spot to spot and in between spots while walking she indeed was giving some history to Spanish speaking people - 2 to be exact...If you are not a Spanish speaking- total waste of time!.. We had a tour in Toledo with the different company, with the guide also speaking both languages one after another and that was great! Nobody felt left alone. But Amigo tours are very Spanish oriented, so if you are not part of the community- avoid them.

Long day, but saw a lot of the area around Madrid. Not a long time spent in each city, but enough to get a good overview. Tour was bi-lingual, but wasn’t a problem as she spoke excellent English.

Maravillosa experiencia, una guía (Minerva) sin igual. Es un pesar que sea tan breve el tiempo en las dos ciudades para tener más tiempo de explorar y entrar a algunos sitios de interes, inclusive de disfrutar con calma de la deliciosa gastronomía local.
