      Worst day tour ever with irresponsible guides!
      My sister and I booked your Toledo and Segovia tour for today (18 June 2024) through our hotel - Hotel Regente and we have had the worst experience ever!! It started in Toledo with the guide not informing us not to leave our belongings in the bus as we will be using a different bus for the return. She also called out a few names including mine and continues talking Spanish without English translation. When I realised about the different bus for the return, I quickly traced my steps back and to find that the bus had already left. When I approached the guide, she was most unhelpful and kept repeating “I don’t know”. I tried talking to Anthony our English speaking guide but he was more concerned about supporting his colleague and justifying that it’s not easy to switch between languages!! The tour in Toledo with the cathedral tour left us with very little time for lunch as we needed 30 mins to find our way back to the bus pickup point. Our next incident was in Segovia where we had a different guide and we are unable to recover from the shock that the guide was extremely irresponsible, did not do a headcount to ensure everyone from the bus was with her and left a few of us stranded!! In the bus from Madrid to Segovia, she said we will have 30 mins for coffee and toilet break but on arrival in Segovia, she tells us that we only have 10 mins. We very quickly rushed to find a toilet and imagine our horror when we went back to the location where the tour guide was last seen , which is in front of the aquaduct, seems to have disappeared!!! We walked around a bit trying to look for her and could not find her nor find the others from the bus! We eventually found a family of 3 who also realised that the guide had completely forgotten about us. We just waited for 1.5 hrs at the very location for fear of missing the guide and the bus back to Madrid as no headcount is ever done and I’m pretty sure she would have left us in Segovia!!

      Don’t waste your time
      We got our ticket through the Go city Madrid pass. Check in was very organised Duo language (Spanish and English) through an audio set which I found a little tricky because I would tune out for the Spanish bit and then not be listening when she switched to English . My gosh she didn’t stop chatting on the bus . It was toooo much Our tour was snail pass slow that we were nearly tripping over ourselves . Literally shuffling . We saw the Monastery which was a little underwhelming which was on me because I had tuned out by now and removed my headset and was just following the group without hearing / knowing the stories the crypt was interesting Back on the bus to valley of the fallen. Look it’s a massive cross and gorgeous view . You can’t use the funicular . The crypt thing was kinda interesting but not worth a trip out of Madrid for us For me this was the wrong tour but it was the ONLY trip to el Escorial in the Go city Madrid pass. I would have preferred to do JUST an English tour In all honesty I would have preferred to do a day trip to each Toledo and Segovia versus a combined day and skipped el Escorial altogether

      Unacceptable, This tour should not be allowed to operate.
      This tour should be allowed to operate. It was so disorganised that it ruined my holiday of a lifetime. I was on 12 days Andalucia, Morocco and Spain from Lisbon, ending in Lisbon (this option is not on this dropdown menu). I booked the tour online through TourRadar, an Australian site, which says English speaking guide, but I was in Spanish groups majority of time. It was sold as one tour (guided tour) however in that 12 days I was mixed and matched with 5 groups and had 5 ‘guides’ only one guide in Morocco spoke reasonable English then he said he was expecting me (who didn’t understand Spainish or Arabic) there. From the beginning very little information, first there was no contact person or number if you had any questions. I was given a WhatsApp no but saying ‘only for emergency’. When I tried contacting no response. I was nervous until I found the 1st guide, I knew the meeting address but no other info. Inhad left message to this guide to contact me to confirm if I was in his group but no response. I arrived at the address with my luggage, when I met him I learned he didn’t know English, he checked his list and found my name, I was relieved. He tried to communicate with me using Google translate and told me that I will be sent to another group where the guide will speak English, luckily there were many Americans who also spoke Spanish and they translated to me necessary instructions. 2nd guide spoke few basic words of English, 3rd guide in Morocco Najib was the only guide in this tour who made effort to ‘guide’. 4th guide Pepe spoke basic English (I was in french/english group now) but could not be bothered explaining things much. Last leg was another drama. After arriving in Madrid I learned that rest of the group are finishing their tour and heading home, I was the only one supposed to continue on to Lisbon. I had no communication/further instructions from the tour company, I tried contacting them to no avail. As per the tour schedule I had two nights in Madrid, when I couldn’t contact the tour I check with hotel about my reservation, they had only one night reserved for me and hotel is fully booked so they told me to vacate the room. Still can not establish contact with the tour, when I conveyed my concerns to hotel receptionist, one ignore but other picked up the phone and called the tour company and told me that ‘they will check and call back’ but since the hotel is fully booked they told me to kindly vacate the room and sort out issue with the tour company. Meantime I also had also written to TourRadar. Finally I got a response from TourRadar and tour company saying I could stay there the night. Then next I didn’t know how I was going to Lisbon, if anyone is picking me up. After many attempts to contact the tour company (they won’t answer my phone but answered hotels phone), the office didn’t have any record first then they found my name but no idea about my schedule , simultaneously contacting TourRadar, until 9:30 pm I didn’t know my next days program. Finally I received a text with name of the driver and time for pick up. Then in the morning I was told the driver couldn’t find me, eventually he turned up and drove me to Lisbon. This is not an organised tour, so not worth the money. There are so many budget tours much more organised than this, I booked this only because this fitted my time that I have and area I wanted to visit. This tour should not be allowed to operate. If anyone have booked, they have free cancellation, please take advantage and cancel it as it is easy to travel independently in those areas. Since I was travelling solo and I had pleasant experience with organised tours in the past with other tour companies (Cosmos, GoEuGo and TakeTour) I booked this but I still cannot believe that this is allowed.

      Highly recommended
      We liked the promptness and organization of all the employees, ensuring the timeliness of the trip. Also the guide, Noelia, were key for our enjoyment.

      A rushed visit to Escorial and Valley of the fallen
      The tour is good the locations are beautiful but we were rushed thru the entire tour. Our tour was early there were no lines or waiting any place but still our tour guide took us in such a rush we hardly have time for pictures or enjoy the beauty of the place. We were given 2 minutes for the gift shop or take pictures. She was very concerned to be back on time for the next tour, we arrived 15 minutes ahead of time. We were very disappointed I rather paid more to be able to enjoy the amazing beauty of the Escorial and Valley of the fallen

      Horrible trip
      Horrible trip. Very disorganized. Tour guide ran through Toledo, from point to point. If you did not run next to him, you would came to the stop right when he finished his 2 sentence intro and would have to run to another point. I have been traveling for the last 40 years . It’s the worst trip.

      Segovia and Avila tour
      Places that we visited were one of the most beautiful I have ever seen but unfortunatly we didn't have no time to Explorer and see the. We were always waiting for someone in the bus and couldn't leave on time. And the we had like 20 minutes of free time in every city. It clearly wasn't enough. The guides were both pleasant people but didn't proovide us any interesting facts maybe just a couple. I would like It if we could hear more during the driving the bus. I also bought another tour I hope It Will be better.

      We learnt nothing on guided tour
      The bus ride was OK. It takes longer than the train, but you get to see the panoramic view of the city from above. The guided tour was very poor because we didn't learn anything. When we were done with lunch we had to pay for another guide to actually teach us something about the city. Sadly enough we didn't have enough time to complete the tour before having to get back to the bus. This is why I would not recommend going on this particular tour.

      False advertising
      I chose this trip specifically because it included entrance to the Alcázar in Segovia. We got there when it closed. Beatriz spent our time in Segovia in the Cathedral looking and explaining at everything. We were late getting to Segovia because of rush hour traffic. She could easily have shortened the Cathedral tour. She did not apologize for arriving late to the Alcázar and blamed it on traffic. The bus did not take the tour to see the Alcázar from the famous views from outside below. She did not explain that this was the original Walt Disney castle that many know.

      Trip to Segovia with momuments
      Very disappointed. We thought we could spend time at the castle and did not even get near it. Most of the time was spent in two Cathedrals, which are on every corner in Spain. Paid for an English tour and most of the trip was lost in translation, although the translator tried her best. Would not recommend. Rent a car and go on your own

      Amazing morning, disappointing afternoon.
      This was actually two tours. The morning was excellent, went to El Escorial and the Valley of the Fallen. The guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about history and culture. The afternoon was disappointing. I paid to go to Toledo and see the historic sights. We started with an amazing view of the city historic district. Then we went to a souvenir shop. Disappointing to pay money and travel an hour each way to go to a souvenir shop. The afternoon guide, Ricardo, was annoying. Kept on repeating “fijaros (look)”, after spending half an hour at the souvenir shop kept on saying we don’t have a lot of time to see the city. We only got to walk around on our own 1 1/4 hours. It was late so we didn’t go back to the office, after dropping everyone else off at their hotel I was dropped off at a place 20 minutes from where I’m staying. I did better going on my own on my last trip.

      Great option for half day tour from Madrid
      Great tour providing just the right amount of information about the local sights. Very time efficient with sights so not a lot of time to spend wandering around the time at the end of the guided tour but that suited us. Tour guide was friendly and super helpful.

      Educational, friendly, enjoyable day!
      Our guide José Luis was very organized yet relaxed and friendly. He provided all different types of information about the history of the cities and Spain in general. His english was very good. He kept a good pace and provided time for conveniences like a quick coffee and bathroom breaks. Highly recommend.

    Great way to explore Madrid, Carceres, Lisbon, and Fatima in a short, condensed trip. Please set your expectations correctly: this is a fast, condensed trip ifeal for people to see a glimpse of Spain and Portugal in a few days so everything is fast. Not ideal if you wanted to explore those places in depth.

    Our tour guide was kind enough to talk in both Spanish and English. The hotels that we stayed in were also quite good and the restaurant that they recommended were also really good. My sister and I really enjoyed this trip. Kudos VPT!

    Many kilometers in the autocar, hearing explanations from our guide or the local guide... could not see much or get admire anything, just WC in the stops or gift shops. Sorry, no pictures, autocar was too fast and there were no explanations where we stopped of what was important or special. Fatima visit was the only highlight of this trip. On the positive side the drivfb er was very hood and respectful and the scort guide gave us some excellent hints for our safe travel.

    Terrible attention from the d3 guide named Ofelia, the bus space is always full without waifai service, as indicated by the circuits, giving preference to a group from Uruguay, he did not want to rotate the seats, say who will win and get ready, right now I am for I go out to the airport and although the transfer is stipulated on behalf of the agency, they deny me and I will have to pay 30 euros, and she says that from Mexico I claimed them, yes, the Puerta de Toledo hotel is 4 stars but the 2-star room is a fraud the agency.
