Great tour, you see a lot in a short time (of course a lot goes into the drive and you only get an impression, but you also get time to explore on your own). Good mix of information and personal experience. Although the official city tour in Ávila is very short and (as in Salamanca) ends with a visit to the cathedral. The entrance fee is (unfortunately) already included, so you should take a look. Using all of your free time is then possible, but not a must. In Salamanca it is not enough to explore everything, in Ávila you can completely traverse the historical part with all the sights. So to emphasize this again positively. Also that the historical information is given on the bus.

Worth noting the tour is conducted in both Spanish and English... so lots of standing around while the guide repeats the same information in another language. Normally wouldn’t be a problem, but given how cold it was on the tour, it would have been better to move faster with the walking tour and maybe consider conducting separate tours for English and Spanish in future.

Must join this tour if you are in Spain

Love all of it. Salamanca was very beautiful. Avila looks like a fairy tale. It just like being transfered to the old time. Highly recommended for everyone. The quided tour was very good planned. The guide has a lot to tell and we still have time to see the cities by ourselves.
