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 great wonderful location.

In this tour we'll explore more than 2.000 year 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 travel in time.

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

Our day trip won't be complete unless we have 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 we will be personally welcomed and be provided with any explanation we want about traditional way of cooking, the products, and the exquisite Ribera del Duero wine: one of the best wine regions of Spain.

We'll travel to Segovia from Madrid & back by comfortable bus. This way, you'll even be able to enjoy the beautiful nature & scenery during our journey.
Both tickets and lunch is already included into the price for you, so nothing to worry about except your souvenirs :)!

If you'd like to customize the tour in any way, please feel free to let me know!

Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Hola. I´am writter 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. My interests in life are on Spain and that includes Madrid where I can spend hours touring my own city ; My Madrid has got a brilliant sense of humour, is vibrant, and so alive. For me Madrid has got 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 do it. Live Madrid like a real Madrileño, and as we say here; From Madrid to Heaven."
