Description

Visit the historic Spanish cities of Salamanca and Ávila on a guided tour that reveals the legends of these magnificent locales. In Salamanca you can explore the impressive Plaza Mayor and the enormous New Cathedral, while in Ávila you can wander down the charming avenues of this walled city.

Depart from Madrid and head to Salamanca, where your tour starts in the center of the city as you listen to your guide tell stories about the past. Make your way to the Plaza Mayor, which is a large public square characterized by its impressive baroque buildings that line all sides. This popular gathering area boasts many restaurants, ice cream parlors, shops, and jewelry stores to check out. Next, head to the New Cathedral, a beautiful church that masterfully combines Gothic and Baroque architecture. This gorgeous cathedral dominates the Salamanca skyline.

After spending a few hours walking around Salamanca, head to Ávila, where you can explore the ramparts of this medieval walled city. Learn about the history of this unique city as you stroll down ancient alleys and pass by stunning Romanesque churches like the Cathedral of Ávila and the Basílica de San Vicente. Return to your coach and head back to Madrid, enjoying views of the Spanish countryside along the route.

I did not like the information given in Spanish and then English. This took twice as much time. It took away from the amount of free time to explore and have lunch. Our guide was so worried about the time that she rushed us through any possible bathroom breaks and in the end almost ran to the bus abandoning the guests to make their own way back.

Comfortable way to travel; good guide; good way to see two beautiful cities. But the tours themselves by the guide in each place were not well organised and did not contain much information at all. We were just taken to the cathedrals in both places (which were free entrance) and not even given a guided tour. Also, the tours were too slow, we wasted time on not particularly interesting things (eg spending 20 mins at a look-out spot to take photos).
