Toured all the main points of interest. Guide was good, but because of the group mix, had to repeat everything in English and Spanish. Our tour included a traditional Spanish lunch as well and was very good.

We booked a tour to Segovia and Avila with Viatour. They run this tour through Julia Travel. The tour guide, Amelia, was obviously not happy in her job. She had no enthusiasm, little knowledge and poor English. She was even confrontational with several travelers and very rude in her comments about them. With so many young people looking for jobs...

Dear Madam, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I was concerned to read your comment about our guide’s behavior as guides are one of the most important part of our company image. I apologize for any inconvenience in this sense and will check what happened on this Avila & Segovia tour. Regarding the timing of the... More

I am a family of five with three children, ages 9, 8, and 2. I knew I wanted to visit Toledo, Segovia, and Avila during our trip to Madrid. I did my research, and learned that while doable, visiting these towns on your own requires a bit of effort…take the train here, then take the bus there…really not easy or... More

I pre booked a Madrid city tour which incorporated the Bernabaeu stadium tour as a gift for my boyfriend for his birthday. I booked this online from the UK. I was not informed that this was just a city tour whilst sitting on a coach for 2 hours. Only to be allowed off for 20 minutes to get a drink... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for posting a review and give me your feedback. Our Madrid Sightseeing tour only pretends to be an approach to Madrid’s Highlights and an overview of all the city offers to the visitors. It also can be combined with other more focused visits like a guided tour to the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum or also... More

When you sign up for an English tour you expect the whole tour to be in English. But that was not the case for Julia Travel. They get a full bus one way or another and my tour was half English and half Spanish. The tour or Toledo I was on could have been over hours earlier and I would... More

This was book through Viator but provided by Julia Travel. It really was very good. The guide and driver were friendly and helpful throughout. Cordoba, Toledo, Ronda, Seville and Granada were all wonderful and the hotels in Seville and Granada were great. The huge quality gap in this was the Costa del Sol which is really Torremolinos. I have no... More

Did the Segovia/Avilla tour -- while a nice person, the tour guide was disinterested, glued to her iPhone the entire trip, and failed to give anything but a perfunctory history on much of the tour. The worst part though was that the key reason for the tour - the Roman aqueducts of Segovia - were used as a `drop off'... More

Booked on a trip to see The Valley of the Falllen on the outskirts of Madrid and this included a tour of a monastery called El Escorial, total cost of 60 euros.
