This is a great way to see two beautiful cities in one day. The busses are comfortable and not crowded. The day is very low stress with a nice mix of guided tours and time to explore on your own. Thanks to Pablo for a great tour.

This is a great way to have a quick brush on amazing history rich cities. Estefy and Jose were great guides providing excellent insights on each of the places we visit. Recommended for people wanting to learn about Spain’s rich history and without much time.
We took the tour to Toledo and Segovia with Jose and to Salamanca and Avila with Estefy, both from Amigo tours.

Visit two of Spain's most historic cities in one day. The tour stops first in Salamanca, where you can see the third oldest university in Europe, and also the beautiful cathedral. The second stop, Avila, is a beautiful walled city. This tour is well worth it.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Had to beg even to get our money back from a cancelled tour as they were going to keep it. Do not plan ahead as they cancelled the tour three days before the date so you can’t book anything else. The email they sent went to junk and we showed up to no one there. The other negative reviews are on point just avoid this organization all together and save a headache. When we called the company as we had to beg for our money back, they did not seem to care that we had wasted our day and morning offered nothing to us and made my wife cry. I told them they would be receiving this review and they did not care. Well if your like me you read the reviews and avoid companies that do this to tourists. All I can hope is that the loss in business will hurt.

We enjoyed the day but felt there was too much travelling and not enough time spent in either city, particularly Salamanca. Our tour guide was wonderful. The weather was very inclement and detracted from the enjoyment of the day.

Was supposed to leave for this tour today, we arrived just as the bus was leaving, tried to catch it and get the drivers attention but was ignored. Our journey to the meeting point was horrible, the metro line we needed to take was closed delaying our time. This led to a last minute decision to take a taxi, driver did not speak English and refused to let us call Amigo tours to let them know our situation as we have no cell service, only had wifi to use. Despite our best efforts, we made it to the meeting point still and after the bus left, we went to a hotel close by to ask to call Amigo tours, however Amigo tours were unable to help us. We traveled all the way from Canada to make this trip and for this unfortunate issue to arise and to have NO direct contact to assist us on this issue is unacceptable. We are unable to make calls due to long distance being expensive, stil we have been scrambling to find an email contact online which does not exist. We've tried a few types of online communication we've come across, assuming it will get someones attention and are hoping we see a response.

This tour was wonderful. It’s a bit rushed but there is just enough time to see a lot of things. Both cities are nice. The churches and walls are both cool.
