What you can expect

Join me for a day in beautiful Segovia; the treasure of Castilla and the former capital of Spain. It has the best Roman Aqueduct and an ancient medieval city where you can see the 3 cultures: Arabic, Christian, and Jewish which made Segovia in a wonderful location.

In this tour, we'll explore more than 2.000 years of Spanish history from the Romans, to the House of the Catholic Kings, Isabel y Fernando, where they organized the travel with Christopher Columbus to go to America. It’s like a real time travel!

Next, to that, Segovia also has one of the best and most delicious cuisines. Worldly famous is the suckling pig, and lamb roasted in a medieval stone oven among many other traditional dishes and wines that Segovia and Castilla have to offer. Sounds delicious right?

Your day trip won't be complete without a Segovian meal in one of the best traditional restaurants in town. Throughout the years of my visits to Segovia, I've become close friends with the owner and chef so you will be personally welcomed and provided with an explanation about the traditional way of cooking, the products, and the exquisite Ribera del Duero wine: one of the best wine regions of Spain.

Our meeting point is at the magnificent Plaza de España next to the of Don Quijote statue. I can tell you about Cervantes while we walk up to nice Calle Princesa to the Moncloa bus station.

Get ready to travel to Segovia from Madrid and back by comfortable bus. This way, you can sit back and relax and you enjoy the scenic views of nature around you.

Both tickets and lunch are already included in the price for you, so nothing to worry about except your souvenirs and memories. If you'd like to customize the tour in any way, please feel free to let me know!

I Look forward to meeting​ you soon!

¡Hola! I'm writer and journalist born (fifth generation) in Madrid. I have many hobbies: Flamenco, XIX century literature, the magic Easter Processions in Andalucia, gastronomy... But my real passion is my own country. I'm fascinated by Spain and that includes Madrid where I can spend hours touring my own city.
My Madrid has got a brilliant sense of humor, is vibrant, and so alive. For me, Madrid has the perfect combination of a big cosmopolitan modern city with the tradition and charm of a village.
I can show you the tradition in the ancient taverns and shops from the inside and tell you the stories behind. Of course, I can 100% can personalized your tour.
So let's do it. Experience Madrid like a real Madrileño, and as we say here, From Madrid to Heaven."
