From Madrid, door to door service with a private guide
Let's visit together the city of Spain where Isabel, was crowned Queen of the Kingdom of Castile. That was a turning point in the history of not just Spain. The castle which was one of the favourite residences of her family and the beautiful maze of streets of this wonderful sample of our history.
The symbol of the city is the best kept aqueduct of the Roman Empire. Nearly 2000 years old. Did you know that it brought water to the city till 100 years ago?
Let's top it off with some lunch in one of the wonderful restaurants which are to Segovia what Haute Couture to France.
During this tour we will have the chance to visit the medieval Alcazar (palace or fortress in spanish arabic) which was built in different fases from the 12th century on, and go back into time. The beautiful spires (that remind us to the Walt Disney castle) were added on the 16th century. Then we could enjoy a coffee at the beautiful terrace with view by the castle or we will continue our tour through the maze of streets of the city in order to discover the medieval architectures of its churches on our way to the Cathedral. I will suggest to eat some suckling pig, the speciality of the region.

Susan was fantastic. Her knowledge of history, her sense of humor, her ability to go with the flow and tailor the tour to our requirements were terrific. It's like we stepped back in history and were reliving the development of Segovia. I would definitely give Susan 5 plus stars for an excellent job. Her knowledge of Spanish history is unsurpassed!!!
