Our guide was not good at announcing when/ where leaving then yelled at us in front of bus of people she called out for tour ten times. Actually she called out in Spanish three times as she quickly walked away to bus across busy street. This and chaotic office to sign in did not start tour well. We signed up... More

We booked this trip online before we went to Madrid and it was a great trip. The comments online about carrying water, having snacks because the lunch is late compared to what we might be used to and the advice to have the lunch you can have included with the tour were all helpful. We are a family of 4... More

I try to research tour groups well before we go on holiday, but due to last minute planning this time, we had no choice but to look at tour groups once we were in Madrid. The reviews on TripAdvisor are pretty average for Julia Travels; however we decided to go with them anyway as other companies were booked out at... More

Although Marta, our tour guide was friendly and informative, the travel on the bus comfortable, I was disappointed (understatement) to be left behind at the Valley of the Fallen. I returned to the bus shortly after the appointed time ( got tied up in the gift shop and was a few minutes late....ONLY a few!!) and discovered that the bus... More

Toledo is a beautiful city well worth a day trip or more. We took the Full Day Tour from Madrid. The office was chaotic in the morning; we almost missed the tour in the confusion. The guide was knowledgeable but was unwilling to let anyone stray even for a minute to shop. The lunch was awful; I would recommend NOT... More

My biggest complaint was that some of the waiting wasted a lot of time. I'll cut them a break as the were closed the day before due to the Coronation of Felipe so they had a glut of reservations to deal with. However, they could make sure they leave on time in the morning and at rest stops (said 10... More

This tour company will take you to Avila & Segovia. You won't have enough time to explore but this area doesn't need exploration. We got some facts about the places & thats it. All in all its Average..

We booked the day tour that takes you to Avila then Segovia. It was a rush all the way through. We did not have time to even buy a souvenir in Avila. You then have to walk half the town to get back on the bus. In Segovia we had to walk from the bus, then were told that we... More
