Visit the historic Spanish cities of Salamanca and Ávila on a guided tour that reveals the legends of these magnificent locales. In Salamanca you can explore the impressive Plaza Mayor and the enormous New Cathedral, while in Ávila you can wander down the charming avenues of this walled city.

This popular gathering area boasts many restaurants, ice cream parlours, shops, and jewellery stores to check out. Next, head to the New Cathedral, a beautiful church that masterfully combines Gothic and Baroque architecture. This gorgeous cathedral dominates the Salamanca skyline.

The guide is very accommodating to all. Reasonable and friendly. The whole trip was very organized. No surprise or hic-cup. Really enjoy the churches of both sites. Amazing luxury to see.

Trip to Salamanca started at 745 am. There was no sign where to meet. You have to ask around people you guess who may be tour guides. Bus ride was good. Our tour guide was not really conversant in English. Overall it was alright. Two old towns with nice old buildings. The cathedrals are the highlights as usual.

Beautiful towns. Pretty, worth a visit. Is a long day, 11 hrs, walking around town gives the old Gothic impression how the ancient people lay of lives.
