Can you do Toledo and Segovia in one day?While it is possible to visit both cities in one day, we wouldn't recommend it. Organizing this kind of trip in a single day is quite challenging and requires careful planning. Both cities are beautiful and worth visiting and deserve more than just a few hours to appreciate their attractions and atmosphere truly. Instead, book a Day Trip to Toledo from Madrid and Madrid to Segovia Day Trip separately. If you still need to explore Madrid to the fullest, we suggest you book Madrid City Pass before embarking on a day trip outside the city.

Perfectly planned trip, visiting Segovia was definitely best decision. The tour guide (sorry I can’t remember his name ) was informative and very friendly, and our driver was lovely too.

We really enjoyed our tour and learned so much about the historic cities of Avila & Segovia. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed the towns immensely.

A really nice day out and the bus was very comfortable, air-conditioned & relaxing.
