      A fun trip, well organized. For a full day tour it didn't seem that many hours, breaking up the trip in 2 separate sites worked well. Would recommend.

      This was an excellent tour with an excellent guide (Javier) and a very good coach driver. Javier was informative on the way to the cities and on the tours of both places. We would recommend the upgraded lunch to make the day even more special.

      I can't' say enough good things about Trapsatour and our guide Javier. Javier was fluent in multiple languages, most notably Spanish and English. He was able to easily give the tour in both languages. However, he was happy to have me test my Spanish skills by listening to his Spanish explanations and then asking him questions when I had them. He was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Avila and Segovia. We visited many sites and even had some free time for shopping on our own. I would highly recommend Trapsatour and Javier.

      Raphael was a great guide the only con I would say is that he needs to understand the group is not only interested in the history portion however also would like to take pictures. Give the group maybe 5min to say take pictures then we must stay on timetable and move on. In a split second we lost the group and view of the crypts. Either way it was excellent and worth going on this tour. We would do this again.

      Wow this a must if you are going to Madrid. The Castles in Avila were just breathtaking. Good tour if you don't have a lot of time. There is a lot of walking in Segovia since they can't drive in the town. The lunch was exquisite one of kind strongly recommend upgrading to the suckling pig and wine. Make sure you stay with your guide so you don't get lost. The guide was very informative and friendly. Trip was well organized.

      Overall, we enjoyed this tour a lot. You get picked up from your hotel on-time and shuttled to their Trapsatur main location. They were very punctual and the bus left right at 9 am. The bus is new, seats are comfortable and there are no bathrooms on the bus. Javier was our tour guide and he was great. He is bilingual and his English is excellent. Its not easy to switch between Spanish and English while leading the tour. We enjoyed the overall pace of the tour and the monuments that were covered - spent about couple of hours in Avila churches and convents before taking off for Segovia. Avila and Segovia are both beautiful and historic.

      Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers since both Avila and Segovia are colder than Madrid. We did the tapa option - its one small appetizer and a drink - so we ended up getting additional plates. We spent about 4 hours in Segovia including walking the churches and castle. Javier knows his history, provides a ton or relevant details and answers all questions.

      Absolutely wonderful 9 hour tour. Our guide Javier, provided a lot of relevant information about Madrid as we drove through the city and suburbs. He then had the perfect balance of information and quiet time on our drive to Avila, the first of our two UNESCO world heritage cities. A fascinating tour includinge the intact original walls of the city surrounds, beautiful and interesting churches, the lovely old town, a busy market, the old and new Jewish quarters and the Basillica of St Teresa of Avila, who came from Jewish roots and went on to become a catholic, then a nun and the founder of the Carmelites. Javier had so much information to impart and did so in a very interesting manner. Then on to Segovia and it's intact Roma viaduct over 2000 years old and a wonderful lunch consisting of white bean soup, suckling pig, Segovian cake with ice cream and wines. Then we walked to a magnificet cathedral through the car free streets with many shops including local produce and high fashion. Again, heaps of interesting and relevant information as we strolled though the magnificent Cathedral and its surrounds and finally to The Castle upon which Disney's Snow White is based. An original Moorish castle and mosque reclaimed by the Catholic monarchs and added to with Christian facades . A truly wonderful day and one which provided us with so much of Spain's history . Thank you again Javier and for giving us some information about our home, Australia which we had not known. A highly recommended trip with Trapsatur

      This is the perfect day-trip from Madrid - Both Avila and Segovia are UNESCO protected sites, magical little kingdoms of their own. While more time devoted to each town would be good, I already knew it was both towns on a day trip. I was expecting to be rushed, but found it pleasantly relaxing well, if not relaxing, at least not-so-rushed and the time allocated to each town was adequate. The guide even let us wander about on our own, and come to a fixed meeting spot, later on in the trip.
      This was especially helpful in Segovia, where there was so-o-o much to see. We wanted to explore the town a bit a medieval town with historic charm, so we chose to give the cathedral a slip saw it from the outside, and decided to walk around the old alley-ways, do a bit of local craft-ware shopping, and explore the Aqueduct from up-top and personal. Plus the tapas lunch was totally inadequate and so blah. So we had to find something top eat on our own - Nice eating places, at very reasonable cost, in front of and with good view of the Cathedral.
      But the real treasure, not to be missed was the Alcazar which was on the guided tour's itinerary, so we met at the Alcazar, later, for the guided tour inside. Again Spectacular. And this from someone who has seen the Alhambra, and the Real Alcazar in Seville.

      My son and I took this tour a week before he started Grad School at a major university in Madrid. Our tour guide Javier was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable and also personable! He spoke Spanish and excellent English. The bus was clean, and airconditioned and we felt very well taken care of. There was some private time to explore on this tour too. Once my son started at the University, one of his professors took the class to Segovia for the day. My son said Javier had much more information to share and he was glad he took the Viator tour first! We highly recommend this tour!

      I enjoyed all aspects of this tour. Our guide, Javier, was friendly, helpful, and extremely well informed. The sights in Avila were fine, and the sights in Segovia were wonderful. Despite the unseasonably cold, rainy, and snowy weather, it was a fantastic glimpse of life beyond Madrid. I was able to make the hike down the back stairway so i could get the ideal photo of the Alcazar from below the hillside.
