Our guide, Coral, was an absolute delight to spend time with. She gave us a very thorough tour of the different areas in Segovia, including the Jewish quarter, the Plaza Mayor and the Alcazaber. Coral is extremely knowledgable, spoke excellent English, was able to answer all of our questions and recommended 2 excellent restaurants which we thoroughly enjoyed during our stay.

Such a brilliant idea. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, saw all the sights without being part of a huge group, clear map and gps allowed the informative narrative to come on at exactly the right time. Highly recommended

This was really fun. All the additional facts and background of the area, without hustling to keep up with a group. We paused when ever we wished. We will choose more of these in the future.

Wonderful experience. Our guide made a beautiful city even more enjoyable!
