A very well organized tour, great time management especially considering how far is Salamanca from Madrid (2:40hrs) our guide Khan was excellent and provided us with a great background on the fascinating history of these two towns. We had around 1 and half hour free time in each city. The tour started early around 7:45, before reaching the first stop Salamanca we stopped at a restaurant in gas station to have some quick breakfast coffee. Then the guide took us for a short walking tour and left us at Cathedral to continue on our own. We then drove to Avila and spent there around 2 hours. We finished around 5 clivk and were back in Madrid around 6:30.
