The guidance we received hasn’t been able to recreate the history of the city and its monuments; it was just a hop on hop off interspersed with small anecdotes and commentaries surpassing the limits of the tour.

Arrived here 2 days ago. Beautiful university city. Vibrant, good restaurants, and everything Spain has to offer in a relatively small package. Very walkable!!! Our guide, Morikita, for the " 3 hour tour" was knowledgeable as to the historical nature of all the sites we visited. She was personable and quick witted and she understood and took care to respect my walking ability which is slow and somewhat difficult going uphill. Speaks English and at least 3 other languages fluently. I would reccomend her without hesitation.

Our daughter is studying in Salamanca, but we knew she wouldn’t be able to give us an good overview of the history. We had her go with us, and we learned so much. The historic area around Plaza Mayor and the cathedrals were really brought to life for us. Our guide was pleasant and thorough.

Did this tour with 'Yolanda' last week. Yolanda was pleasant and enthusiastic. Clearly very knowledgeable and in two hours the tour went to all the places that would probably be at the top of your 'hit list' in Salamanca. A couple of things though. Yolanda spoke in heavily accented English which was difficult to follow at times (i missed about a quarter of what she was saying. Other English speakers made similar comments) and the 10 euro entry fee for the University and new Cathedral are extra and have to be paid when you turn up for the tour (to be fair it does say this on the confirmation when you receive it).

Goob morning and thank you very much for your comment. Centainly the tour meets the expectations of the most demanding tourist Indeed the spectacularsalamanca guides have extensive knowledge of the City and put enthusiasm because we LOVE our work.....and un my case i also have an increíble memory .... Un fact , i remember you perfectly , a lady and two gentlemen Who lived un Atlanta but were from California and excuse my daring but are missing the truth ensuring that other tourist made a comment about my accent....totally IMPOSIBLE because on Monday , september 3 The TOUR WAS MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR YOU IN ENGLISH !! There was NO ONE ELSE IN ENGLISH. And there are witnesses and evidence ( security cameras )of what i affirm . Adding that logically ,my British ENGLISH , It,s different from the English of Atlanta that looks more like the Clencoe valley in the beautiful Scotland.... On the other hand , It,s another fault yo the truth that the cost of the entry fees is not mentioned un advance. As you can check ,It,s explained un detail in the following Pagés : - the oficial tourism Page - tourism brochures -spectacularsalamanca Page - spectacular salamanca ,s brochures -the dossier we send by mail un request -at the recepción of all the hoteles if salamanca -in all the Pagés of national and international platforms -in all the posters distribuyes un the old City of salamanca . -in the 2 stant of salamanca espectacular - in the roll Up distributed un the all City of salamanca. ?????? I Will beg you yo inform yourself properly before making STATEMENTS THAT DO NOT correspond yo reality at all. Thank a lot I Hope you enjoy the resto of your 5 weeks stay in Spain.
