      Excellent tour
      The views and city streets were great! Our tour guide arantxa was fantastic and full of energy. The tour gave us enough time to walk around and explore a bit as well. The souvenirs are a bit expensive but are very unique and artisanal. I am recommending this tour to my family and coming back to Toledo again.

      The tour was wonderful! Our guide, Aranxa, was so kind and knowledgeable. She was patient, and adaptable to whatever was thrown her way. She showed us the best views of the art, cathedrals, and city! Absolutely amazing.

      Satisfied , good trip and pace . One toilet stop in the old town of Segovia would make it perfect .
      Wonderful experience, guide Martha was knowledgeable , friendly and funny . Only one drawback , there was not enough time to explore the shops , maybe just an additional 30 mins will do.

      Two stunning towns with rich histories
      We were told by a friend that we should visit Avila because it is a lesser known day trip from Madrid. I chose a tour that included Segovia, not really knowing anything about it. Wow, Segovia is one of the most beautiful towns I have ever visited. From the intact Roman aqueduct, to the gorgeous gothic cathedral, to the Alcázar. Just one amazing sight after another, and the town itself is so charming. From there we traveled to Avila and toured the fully walled city, including a walk atop the city walls. What an amazing town. Our tour guide, Beatrice, was knowledgeable and shared lots of local history. I would recommend this tour as a great excursion to anyone visiting Madrid.

    The whole trip was rushed and the people who did not purchase the entry tickets to the monuments (Sin Entrada) were treated as second class citizens. Although the ticket clearly mentioned 1 hour guided walking tour of Segovia, the guide refused to honor that stating it was menat for people who are "Con Entrada". The "Tapa Luch" is a joke - it is one third the portion of a regular Tapa. The tour strated 30 min late and finshed 1 hour early, which made the Segovia trip extremely rushed. I realized later that if I had taken the train to Segovia in the morning and taxi from there to Avila and again train from Avila to Madrid - I would have spent the same amount for my party of 3 without any time pressure.

    Dear Customer, We are sorry to disagree with your opinion, we have two Tour options, 1 with tickets included and others without tickets included, the difference is € 26 with the visit with our guide inside the monuments. The tour is the same for all passengers, with that difference. The Tapa is not a meal, it is a gift that we offer to our customers and that is not included in the price, however comments like yours may make us consider, remove the tapa of the itinerary, even if we continue to offer it in the same way. The visit in a taxi or on the train as you say is a mistake, and it needs at least two days, we know what we say and do every day of the year.

    My aunt had purchased these tickets for our family of 14 at the beginning of this year since we were in Madrid for awhile and wanted to do some sightseeing at nearby towns/cities.

    Check-in at the meeting place was at 8:45 am and was located near the intersection of Gran via and san Bernardo, where it's literally near the bus stops and in front of an alleyway. From here, we took a short walk to load into the buses at approximately 9:00 am. It takes about an hour to get to Avila first and then another hour afterwards for Segovia. We did arrive back in Madrid at about 7:00 pm due to traffic.

    A cool thing about this tour was that we were given these cute little mp3 player looking things so that we could hear our guide (Christina for our case) even from a short distance since the groups were divided into about 20 people for each group. Christina was quite knowledgable and did make an effort to interact with the group so that it wasn't just her speaking the entire time.

    However, the main issue I had with this tour was how little to no time we had for ourselves to explore or even visit the toilets. I will not lie to you; for the first stop, we had about 10 minutes and then about 30 minutes for the second stop. Keep in mind that there are multiple groups of 20 people trying to use the same restrooms or eat at the same nearby cafes. It's odd because I felt rushed the entire day but still didn't feel like we did or see much to be honest. A lot of the time you will be walking, and a lot of that time walking is at an incline. I checked my steps at the end of the day, and it was about 20,000 steps with a distance of 7.82 miles.

    Dear Ohailea, Thank you for sharing your detailed review of your recent tourist experience. We appreciate your comprehensive feedback and are happy to hear that you found value in the convenience of the meeting point and the distribution of audio devices for a better guided experience with Christina. We apologize for the challenges you faced with the time allotted for personal exploration and facilities. We understand that having limited time at each stop, especially when shared with other groups, can make the experience seem rushed and detract from the overall enjoyment, but it is Patrimonio Real who sets the times. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you during your day. Your perspective on the walking aspect and slopes is also noted, but there is no other way to do it. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive experience, but we understand that it's important to strike a balance between covering ground and allowing enough time for further exploration. We greatly value your insights as they help us improve and refine our tours. Your comments regarding time constraints and walking distances will be taken into account as we strive to improve the experience for our future guests. Thank you for choosing our tour for your sightseeing adventure and we hope you will consider joining us again in the future, perhaps with adjustments to ensure a more satisfying and better paced experience. Sincerely,

    If you are 55 and older this is the tour for you! This tour is slow and boring!!The duration of this tour is 8 hours, you will spend 3.5 hours driving to the destinations and 90% of the information you will receive is useless. The resturant that this tour partnered with food is not good and if you want anything outside of the bread and cheese that’s comes with the tour package you have to pay additional . This was a complete waste of money and time.

    Also; if you are tall, the bus you are transported in will not be in Your favor because the space is very limited.

    So our guide was 5+ starts super nice, funny helpful. There is few things i didn't like and that's first stop in restaurant they absolutely don't speak any language except Spanish not even trying to understand English or anything else absolute disaster. Agency is in deal with restaurant and that's fine by me every day trip is like that but at least ifnu are touristic place speak English that should be minimum. Second thing is guide is talking Spanish and then English it is really hard to understand when guide switches to English sonu have to be 100 percent in what's she is saying which is equal to impossible. Also Segovia is much better place then Avilla. I have been on loads one day trips and this one was the worst. We have been late 2.5h to Madrid so don't plan anything after trip because u won't know exactly when u will be back. Just wanna say it again guide was super good but everything else was just not that great 3/5

    Dear Matija, We appreciate that you evaluate our guide with more than 5 stars. At the restaurant, please note that, by courtesy, we offer you a free tapa and a drink, and it’s of course optional to order something else, at your own expenses, or to go to any other restaurant of your choice on your free lunch time. In this restaurant, they have the menus both in English and Spanish , and, in case of any doubt out of the menus, our guide is always available to support. Our tours are bilingual, in English and Spanish. We are sorry that you were unable to follow as the other travelers did while considering our tour as excellent. With regards to the delay on our arrival, you probably misunderstood the duration of the tour, we arrived to Madrid a bit later than usual due to a big traffic issue on the way back as you probably noticed from the bus. For us the safety of our trip is the first thing, to bring you back to Madrid safe and sound, and satisfied with our tour. Best Regards, Fun and Tickets.

    It was very aggressive sales pitch to buy extras like “inclusive admission fees” (extra €26 per person x2 for a couple) on the first hour of the tour while riding on the bus. They would call out your name on the loudspeaker of the bus.

    I took the bait as they misled me. It wasn’t necessary to pay the extra €52 at all as a couple.

    I know now that however hard they push to buy “extras” last minute on the bus, don’t do it.

    We went inside to only 2 out of the 5 monuments that was supposed to involve entry fees. Most of the tour was just outside of the monuments.

    I’ve included the proof below of the charge:

    This tour, if you read the description, does not include the entrance and guided visit to monuments. You have made several requests about the optional service. This is Spain, no one forces anyone to buy anything, the client is free to choose the option with monuments or without monuments, but the day an annoying or distrustful client shows up, it is better that they not come with us. Here we do not deceive anyone. You can read 98% of opinions on thousands of passengers who think the opposite of you. We assume that when we have thousands of passengers, these things can happen. You are not right friend.

    Wonderful experience with a knowledgeable and humorous guide in Raphael who complimented the stunning places we visited.

    Worked like clockwork from pick up to drop off and the coach was really very comfortable - if the promised wifi was somewhat hit and more miss!

    People should be aware that there is a lot of walking involved and am glad herself didn’t not come as it would have been too difficult for her.

    As a sole traveller, I found Raphael easy and approachable and was lucky to spend time with some lovely people. Highly recommend and on to Seville!!

    If you only have one day in Madrid, do not hesitate to visit Avila and Segovia. This company organizes it perfectly, and has an unbeatable team. Our guide was Oscar who made us forget about the present to travel through time, and the 9h of the tour passed in the blink of an eye!

    pros:
    Very comfortable bus, smooth driving. The cities are beautiful and must go, Both of them. The guide inside the bus was pretty good.
    cons;
    The bus was fully booked and it was 2 deck bus, so it was 65-80 people.
    We spent less time in the Avila then they gave us for lunch.
    Segovia was not that short but we had Christina as a tour guide and either she did not bother to share information, history and tales or she doe not have a knowledge. The only tale she told us in Avila is about a very educated Jewish non. Other time she just pointed to the things with little comment.

    Best way is find a guide in the city and go there by train. It will be more value vs. money.

It is impossible to visit both cities in one day by public transport. Our guides are official guides of the tours visited and the 5* rate is 95%. We are sorry you have this opinion.

    I had no expectations but both Avila and Segovia blew my mind. Definately a must see. Our guide Carmen was really good, interesting and informative. Tapas was included in the price, which was a slice of chorizo, pork cracklings and a drink. Would recommend taking this tour.
