Full description
Start your 6.5-hour adventure by meeting your friendly and informative tour guide. After a meet and greet, you will set off on your adventure. The first stop is in the city of Segovia, for a walking tour led by your guide. Explore the historic center of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Stroll through the city’s main square, Plaza Mayor, to see monuments such as the Roman aqueduct and Spain's first Gothic cathedral. You will also enter the former royal palace and fortress, the Alcázar Real, one of Spain's most famous fortresses. 

Then get ready for an exciting 1.5-hour journey on horseback through the valleys of the city, with stunning views of El Escorial. This is an entertaining and original way to discover the landscape of the region's capital city. Learn how to handle your horse, discover the basics of horse care and practice your horseback-riding skills while reveling in the freedom and tranquillity of the countryside. Under the supervision of expert guides, the route is suitable for everyone.

Discover the beauty of the city's two rivers, the Eresma and the Clamores. Enjoy the ride and the amazing views of the Alcázar Real, used as the inspiration for Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty and reconstructed in Disneyland. At the end of your tour, you will return to the center of Madrid in a comfortable minibus. Upon arrival your guide will be able to recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.
