Take advantage of this time and see the most important roman civil construction in the Peninsula, the Aqueduct of Segovia.

Meet your guide again in front of the Cathedral for an exterior visit of the same. Walk through the old Jewish quarter of the city following your guide towards the Alcazar of Segovia.

The pace was good. What we saw was fabulous. The guide Nouri was most helpful.
Suggestion: have a place to ask for food allergies. I could not eat some of the things served for lunch but the restaurant tried their best to accommodate me.
Highly recommend the trip and the tour company. Office is a nice place to wait and staff very helpful.

The guide was wonderful. The day was amazing. This day trip from Madrid is a must if you have the time. Do the full day. We opted for the tapas and wine and then ordered a la cart off the menu for lunch. Avila’s history was Interesting and one highlight was waking on top of the walls of the city and walking on two or three towers of the 88 along the 2.2 KM of walls. Just incredible views and history.

Segovia was Incredible. Buy the tour option where you go into Alcazar castle. It’s amazing. It’s the castle Disney modeled their castle on and the rooms inside and history from the tour guide won’t disappoint. The Roman aqueducts in Segovia are well
Preserved. Both towns are quaint and weren’t crowded, but that’s likely due to our off season holiday. Gorgeous views all around.

Julia Travel through La Vacanza Travel did a great job with the tour. Everything was as expected - they delivered what they said they would. The guide was superb and was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I was impressed. My only comment, more of a recommendation really is if you are taking this tour, do the lunch on your own! You will have plenty of time even though some reviews suggest you won't. We were given 1 hour and 45 minutes to eat lunch and get to meeting place which is 15 minutes from starting point. When you get the included lunch, there is no choice, they just serve it. And, quite honestly, the food was just ok. The people who ate lunch on their own and then met up with the group for the tour had a much better experience. But, bus was clean and smooth, tour guide excellent. Would book again.
