In addition, visit the Monastery of El Escorial and its basilica, burial place of the kings of Spain.

We leave Madrid early in the morning towards Ávila, where we stop at the viewpoint Cuatro Postes. Next, we head to the city to start the walking tour, passing by the Sanctuary of San Vicente, the Cathedral and, of course, the walls.

Then we leave for Segovia, where your guide explains how the Romans created the aqueduct. We continue our route through the streets of the city center, passing through the Cathedral and the district of the Canonries until we reach the Alcázar, symbol of the art and history of Spain.

Amazing location, great guide

★★★★★ Reviewed by Livia on 2019-07-20
Paula, our guide was knowledgeable and had a great energy. I was running late so i called to let them know and they waited for me. The bus ride was smooth, with comfy chairs and lots of space. The 3 places we visited were just breathtaking. I wish I had a month to explore each of them. I guess i’ll have to come back one day.

Breathtaking Tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Alex on 2018-11-04
Khan was an excellent tour guide. His attention to details, good sense of humor and constant effort to keep us engaged made this tour one to remember. Pablo our driver was very courteous and drove safely throughout our tour. The Roman aqueduct was simply astonishing and Khan did a superb job explaining its history to us. We even had enough time to skip lunch and visit the Alcatraz castle. You have to be in good shape to do it, but it’s worth it. My family had a great experience with Amigo Tours. We were very satisfied with Khan and Pablo. I highly recommend this tour since you can see so much in little time.

A great day!

It was a great trip! Jose did a very good job, translating everything in English and being attentive at our needs. We saw amazing places, and thanks to Jose we've learned so many things about them. Despite the fact that it is a 'busy' trip, in Avila and in Segovia we had enough to eat and to enjoy these amazing places. I recommended it.
