Fantastic Bike Tour with Martoke in Salamanca! I recently had the pleasure of exploring Salamanca by bike, guided by the Martoke, and I recommend this experience! Martoke is not only multilingual but also exceptionally knowledgeable, bringing the rich history and unique aspects of Salamanca to life with vivid storytelling. Traveling by bike added an extra layer of excitement to the tour, allowing us to cover more ground and soak in the sights in a fun, engaging way. Whether you’re a history buff or simply looking to see the city from a new perspective, Martoke’s tour is a top-notch choice. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to discover Salamanca!

Excellent tour with very knowledgeable guide. You visit cathedral and university from inside. This is a must tour when visiting Salamanca for the first time. The same guides do an other tour in the afternoon which shows you other half of the town. We did both tours on the same day: highly recommended <3

This tour is a must do! Martoke, our Dutch guide who has lived in Salamanca for over 30 years, was a joy! She infused the trip with really interesting history, fun facts and helpful recommendations. The tour was an easy mix of walking and cycling at a very relaxing pace. Top class tour guide!

Our guide, Martoke Witlox, is very friendly, experienced and knowledgeable about the area. We had the privilege of being the only ones in the group, which made the visit even more enlightening. Not even the rain ruined the visit.

Definitely one of the best guides in Salamanca, knows every part of the city, even the tiny details in the sculptures are shared to us. She is a very amiable and knowledgeable guide.
