Good tour efficiently run and excellent guide. Cramming in two cities inevitably means it is a bit rushed but both places well visiting. The coach also stops at the Four Posts viewing point for great photo op of the walls of Avila. more


Good tour ! I think the guide may be walk more calm for the people can take pictures!
But it 'seems a nice tour !
