Javier was prompt, very knowledgeable and answered our many of inquiries. His English was good and his knowledge of Segovia's history was excellent. He provided a great foundation for the remainder of our visit in Segovia. The four of us appreciated the time he shared with us...

Another great experience with Tours By Locals and thanks to Javier for his knowledge about the historical sites of Segovia & the lovely walled city of Avila. But learning more about what the locals enjoy in these cities was very awarding as well as the historical facts not always found in a guide book. Our experience with Tours By Locals has never been a disappointment and the guides make it the best experience we recommend the one on one tours as the only way to go.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I hope you really enjoyed our day tour

Javier was very pleasant, helpful, always punctual and responded well to my requests. We had a few problems with the language and although her knew the answers, he did not always understand the questions which had to be re phrased a few times to be understood. He did not speak on the coach journeys about details of places we were passing by.

Enjoyed this "combo" visit to Avilla and Segovia, with Javier. He is an excellent guide, fluent in English, and extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of both these cities. Would strongly recommend this tour to get a good understanding of the historical context of the area. Javier picked us up from Madrid and then dropped us to the train station in Segovia for the journey back on the high speed train. He was extremely communicative throughout the process, and made coordination very easy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James and family! Muchas gracias for your good comment and high rating. I really appreciate my time with you and I am happy about you enjoyed the tours. All my best

We were a group of 6 family members visiting Avila and Segovia. Javier met us at the Avila train station (he first assisted me with deciding routes from Madrid to Avila and Segovia back to Madrid). Javier was wonderful, he speaks excellent English and clearly loves Spain and Spanish history. At the end of our journey, when he realized that we had tickets for not the best train back, he went inside and helped us transfer our tickets to another, faster train route. My family and I give Javier 110%

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amy, many many thanks to you and your lovely family. I really apreciate your very nice comment and rating. I hope to see you again in your next vacations to Spain! All my best for all you

Javier was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. He was on time at our meeting place and very informative. We took a 2.5 hour tour around Segovia and through the castle (at a reduced cost). He gave us a good understanding of Segovia and it's history. Javier answered all of our questions along the way and kept a good pace for our group of four. He made suggestions for us for lunch and we tried the suckling pig at a local restaurant! Overall, it was a great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary, many thanks for your comment and rating. I am very happy when you enjoy my tours. Cathedral inside is an option when we have enough time within te 2.5 hours tour.

As a walking tour of Leon, Javier was able to provide enough information to whet your appetite for delving into more detail on any of the sites we visited (the Cathedral and San Isidore are astoundingly beautiful, one with miles of stained glass and the others with gorgeous fresco cycles, tombs and relics) .. please note both are under restoration, but you are able to see almost everything that matters. Javier is also friendly by nature that makes him an endearing guide !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment and review. I really enjoy the morning with you in Leon

a wonderful day touring Toledo and Castile/La Mancha with Javier. Visiting the Quixote trail (and eating regional cuisine at a cafe whose proprietor resembled Don Quixote) was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Javier is a congenial, punctual and knowledgeable guide who made the experience everything we had hoped for; I can recommend his services without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stanley. Too many thanks for your good review. I hope you really enjoy our two days together

Our day trip from Madrid to Avila and Segovia with Javier as our driver/guide was a delight. Javier is a very pleasant young man with an excellent knowledge of the destinations and their attractions, and his restaurant/shopping recommendations were most helpful. He was accommodating to the varying physical capabilities of our 8 person group, and was generous with his time as we went rather later than contracted for due to traffic etc. All in all I would recommend him without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again Stanley. I will be waiting for your next visit to my beautiful country

Our train was 30 minutes late, so our tour of Avila seemed a bit rushed. (Not Javier's fault). We saw the major sites but missed walking on the wall. Javier then drove our group of 5 in his comfortable SUV to Segovia, where at my request, he had made reservations at Jose Maria to experience the best suckling pig in Spain. After a delicious lunch Javier gave us a comprehensive tour of Cathedral and the Alcazar Castle. Quiet at first, Javier became much more comfortable with our outgoing group after lunch.

We enjoyed our walking tour with Javier. He knows Salamanca well and has an efficient and effective walking tour to offer. It's a good introduction to the city and a fine way to decide what to do for the rest of the day. I would definitely recommend taking his tour in the morning, enjoying lunch (he was kind enough to point out several possible restaurants), and then continuing to see sites in the afternoon.
