Worth noting the tour is conducted in both Spanish and English... so lots of standing around while the guide repeats the same information in another language. Normally wouldn’t be a problem, but given how cold it was on the tour, it would have been better to move faster with the walking tour and maybe consider conducting separate tours for English and Spanish in future.
The guide was excellent. Driver was very good. But the tour itself felt a bit like “we drive you to the place, so you don’t have to do it yourself”. Would be better to have more guided time in the cities. Plus the tour has been moved, but GetYourGuide automatic email still was sent in the abandoned date to remind about the upcoming tour that was confusing
Our guide was excellent, not from Salamanca himself but loves the city and has spent time getting to know it. In 2 hours, he showed us the main sights and then we returned later to go to the museums, up the tower etc in our own time. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
Mohamed was punctual at my hotel, had a clear plan, not a local but knows his stuff, had prepared really thoroughly so loads of information, and was excellent company. A very professional job, and a really good morning!
The trip was quite enjoyable. Our guide, Minerva, was very good. She explained things well and was very informative. It would be more enjoyable if there was wifi on the bus and more legroom.
