It took about 1 hour 15 minutes to from Madrid to Avila. We have about 2 hours in Avila for a guided walk and 20 minutes on the wall. It is a bit short on the wall for our visit. Then an hour drive to Segovia. We got a tapa but did not opt for lunch. We ordered suckling pig and lamb leg ourselves. If you have meals, then there are only 20 minutes at the aqueduct which is a bit short. The walk to Alcazar is very nice and the visit to Alcazar was valuable. Overall, this is the only way to visit both places within a day unless you drive or have a private tour.

Avila and Segovia are both incredible places to visit, and we found this tour to be a very good way to get the highlights of both cities. Our tour guide was Marta and she was great, very knowledgeable, energetic and helpful. The tour starts in Avila, where you visit the walls and walk through several monuments and landmarks. Then you head to Segovia where you have lunch the segovian pig was amazing and walk past the aqueduct through the city to finish your visit in the Alcazar. My only complain is at times the tour feels a bit rushed, specially during the visit to Avila. Be aware that you will walk a lot! All in all a great tour to 2 beautiful cities, totally recommended.

Really good tour. Avila is great. Segovia, especially the aqueduct, was incredible. Skip the free tapas for lunch that is included in the tour, and go to one of many fine and famous restaurants at the base of the aqueduct.

Great day for sure hitting all spots to see in these two great cities. I would have liked the tour to last an hour longer to have more time to see Avila, having felt rushed through the stops there. Otherwise the tour guide was informative and gave great explanations in both Spanish and English. Her knowledge and guidance in the Cathedral and Alcazar of Segovia were kept our interest and gave good detail.
