You will be welcomed by the impressive 8-mile-long Aqueduct of Segovia, one of the most significant and best-preserved monuments left by the Romans on the Iberian Peninsula. It is among the most important symbols of Segovia, as is evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms.

From here you will enjoy a walk through the Knights, Jews, and Canons Districts to admire the precious Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque monuments of Segovia. At the end of your walk through Segovia you will visit the Alcazar, a perfectly-restored fortified castle from the Middle Ages. You will be transported next to the impressive Granja Palace and its glorious gardens, which were executed by order of Phillip V, the first Bourbon King of Spain.

Next on to Avila, that is still guarded by its massive Medieval City Walls, now considered to be a National Monument of Spain. From paths along the Walls you will experience a wonderful view of the valley of Avila. Walking through the area you will encounter such things as the Santa Teresa Convent, the Palace of Nuñez Vela, the Convent of San Jose, and Monasterio de Encarnación.

This historical journey will surely prove to be a thoroughly enriching day out from Madrid.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
