An excellent day trip from Madrid. Yes, this is a long day. But, overall well-balanced with enough time for sightseeing and time to relax in the vehicle. Both Ávila and Salamanca are lovely cities. (And I’ve been to Segovia and Toledo which are more common day trips from Madrid and enjoyed Ávila and Salamanca more.) Our driver and both city guides were wonderful. Highest ratings—from highly experienced world travelers (more than 60 counties and all 7 continents). First time we used Get Your Guide and we will be back.
