Overall rating

4.5
(179 reviews)

My private tour of Salamanca was amazing! My tour guide met me at my hotel, and was super knowledgeable about the history of the city and all of the major sites. She pointed out details I would not have noticed myself, and gave me a great sense of the culture and life in Salamanca. She also had great recommendations about what to see during my visit even after the tour. I’d highly recommend doing this tour to learn about the city!

Marga was an amazing tour guide. She packed so much into the few hours we had I could have stayed another couple of hours. Her knowledge of the history of the cathedrals and the university was unparalleled. But the best part of her tour was her sharing, quotes, poems, and references from literature and historical people from memory. Really added to the tour experience. 100% would take a tour with her again.

Excellent. Teresa, our tour guide, was an excellent support and show us the lovely/historic city with a proffesional and passionate way. Great tour with her.

Very well run. Guide and driver were excellent. A very good day out!!

Martoke is very knowledgeable and a good guide. Highly recommended!
