    El guía fue muy amable y bien informado. Me gusto bastante pero la una razón por ir a Ávila era ver el convento de Santa Teresa. No nos lo enseñó y estuvimos ahí. Yo no sabia y hubiera ido sin el grupo pero pensaba que quizás estaba en otro sitio y nos iban a llevar después. No lo hicieron y estoy pero bien triste porque no puedo regresar.

Excellent - organisation was clear at the office we met in. The coach was clean and comfortable. Our guide Beatrice was really clear with her English and had a lovely calm tone. The tours were well organised and covered all the main points and places .Avila being so high in the mountains was extremely cold .We didn’t opt for lunch included as we preferred to spend that time at our leisure or they wasn’t a lot of free time .

The tour was very good, the guide I think her name was Ana, was very nice and knowledgeable she answered every question. The only thing was that another participant did not wanted to follow the group and was very disruptive but the guide kept her cool and handle the situation. The driver Paco was very nice too.

The tour is perfect! The bus is comfortable, the tour guide speaks several languages and her English was perfect. The lunch was fabulous and super yummy. The amount of time given to tour each town was just right and we were able to fit some tourist shopping in too.
