It was an amazing experience and memorable trip. I had some prob for meeting point but get your guide and local partner IB tours cooperated well and sorted it and made my trip very comfortable. I highly recommend get your guide for planning trips..our guide Maria Jesus was very informative and friendly.

Day started very early as the cities were combined into one tour. Both cities are historical and are very pretty! My guide Benny was also good and had prepared maps for us for both towns - very sweet of him doing that. Value for money for visiting the 2 cities in one day

We had the opportunity to visit both Segovia and Toledo in one day .The schedule was great , no waste of time , accurate program ! As we followed Get your guide program everything was organized for us !

The tour was paced well between the time spent in both the cities and the drive.
