      We had a very nice visit to 2 places pretty far away. I knew that the visits would be a little rushed, but our guide was very efficient and all bus riders responsible in arriving back to the bus on schedule in each location. Everyone had a guided town tour, a visit to the main cathedral, as well as, time on our own. Our guide gave us lots of historical information during the bus ride plus our town tour (in 2 languages no less). Great job! Our tour was Oct. 2nd.

      Both Avila and Salamanca were amazing locations full of charm and history. Our guide Minerva was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She told us a lot about the history of both towns and was fluent in both Spanish and English. She also kept doing a headcount to make sure everyone was accounted for and she also gave us clear instructions on how to get back to our meeting point. At the end of the trip, people gave her a round of applause. Highly recommended!

      Had a perfect day to tour these 2 amazing old cities..
      Excellent informative guide, clean comfortable bus.
      Loved both cities,definitely worth the trip. Guided walking tours in each followed by free time and time for lunch. Enough time to see the highlights and get the feel for the cities, but not time enough for extensive exploration

      So we had four seasons in one day on this tour, we had sunshine, rain, hail and snow!!!!! But none of this distracted from an excellent trip. Both places are beautiful and amazing! We Also had a wonderful tour guide Berlin (apologies if spelt wrong). This is a long day but is well worth it and the places you visit and see such as the cathedrals are a must do just fascinating and beautiful!! Excellent trip despite the weather!!!!

      This trip was very well done with lots of good information. Well organized and nice sights to visit. Time at each location was more than enough to get a good taste of the town. The early start time and less running subway cars on a saturday almost made me miss the tour so be careful.

      It was long but very informative day, 3 hour bus ride to Salamanca. Both sites visited were impressive and would like to spend more time in Salamanca. Both tour guides were extremely friendly and helpful. Tour was bin-lingual on a large bus which is not optimal.

      Great day visiting 2 beautiful places. The guide Maria was great. I had been to Avila before, but this tour covered some places the tour I did several years ago did not cover. The tour includes cathedral visits in both places - something I was not expecting!

      We did our tour in March and it snowed on our way to Salamanca. That made for a very pretty drive. Our guide thoroughly explained the significance of the walls, the university, the culture, and made great food recommendations. It was a good day on the bus and walking.

      We had the pleasure of the same tour guide Stef who was relaxed, amazing and very knowledgable.
      If you get her as a guide just sit back and relax.
      Stef goes over everything before you get out of the bus as well as at the meeting point. Even puts it on a map for you.

      Excellent excursion. A lot of history in these cities. I was impressed how well conserved are these two cities. To much information and places to visit. I would prefer to do separated in two excursions. Here you don't have to much time to discover new things by your self People really nice. The guide was really nice and attentive with the group. An applause to Maria Jesus.
