5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The cooking lesson at a chefs apt was the highlight. We also lived biking in electric bikes through Seville. We loved the tapas bar crawl through Madrid as well. All guides were well versed and friendly. I've recommended victor to many friends who have since downloaded the app. Many thanks.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

If you have limited time in Barcelona this is the tour to take. The city is beautiful and has been well maintained since the 1992 Olympics. The cable car ride to the fort gives you a magnificent view of the city.
