We thought the tour ran on time and was excellent value!.Our tour guide, Carlos, was excellent. Hotel we stayed at was great inc the b'fasts and dinners!!! The optional flamenco was also great value and thoroughly enjoyable. We found no fault except would have liked to change seats so as to be able to take photos:-)
Fantastic trip and would recommend it . We were travelling through Europe for 7 weeks and found this a great way to travel from Madrid to Marbella. The tour operator was amazing and even went out of her way to have the bus detour to drop us off near our hotel in Marbella. The tour of Ronda was fantastic but could have been at least an hour longer. The walking tour of Cordova's streets was beautiful and the mosque absolutely breathtaking. A well organised and well paced tour and due to the small number on the tour, very personal and relaxing. Thank you.
This tour was wonderful. We enjoyed the company of the other travelers and our tour leader was very informative with just the right amount of information. Seville and the Alcazar Palace and Gardens is an amazing must see. This was not stressed enough by the tour guide to fellow travelers. Flamenco Show is also a must see. Ronda is a magnificent charming old town with history dating back thousands of years...a tip for photographers is to walk half way down the left hand side of the gorge for breathtaking photos. Although only a short tour we got a good taste of Spain. The food and accommodation was excellent.
Excellent tour. Great guide - Carlos. First day is a long driving day broken by an excellent tour in Cordoba. Great day in Seville and the Ronda tour was good. Food in hotel was fine. Only complaint was that the Santa Justa hotel (3 star) had no twin rooms and so I had to share a bed with my 71 year old mother. Not ideal but the aircon was good and the rest of the hotel was fine.
I was very pleased with my choice of tour in Spain. I only had limited time so the amount we covered in 3 days was great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun, the tour group interacted well, the accommodation was above standard. No complaints from me. Thank you it was a great few days.
Well organized, excellent tour guide, good hotel and food. We are really enjoyed.
Very good tour, visited good locations and very good tour guide. Bus driver was very careful and safe. Hotels all good.
The coach and hotels were comfortable. Cordoba, Seville and Ronda were worth visiting. You could get plenty of good pictures there. The night view of Cordoba was fantastic and Ronda was a lovely place to enjoy with fantastic views. The English of the local guide in Seville was difficult to hear what she said. The guide and driver were nice and helpful.
This tour combines many separate tours between Madrid- Costa del Sol-Madrid, sharing transportation and hotels. Don't expect too much.Check the itinerary, the guide Carlos and driver Jesus follow it, don't count that there will be some adjustments to your personal likes/needs.Great places on the way, but do some research and plan "free time"( lots of it) on your own.If you can,choose the seats on the bus entry side( vews appear to be better and the sun is not spoiling the pictures). There is no emergency toilet on the bus and you have to pull window curtain to block the scorching sun)
Tour guide was excellent. Generally very well organized. Included meals were of good quality. Combined English/Italian tour group made for a bit of wasted time on tours as everything was repeated while the group waited. Rooms in the 4 star hotel in Seville left a bit to be desired- very dated/worn decor. Would have liked slightly better alloction of time and more paid sites included. Not perfect, but a good way to see the cities included.
Overall enjoyable although the pit stops at 'chosen' restaurants were too much, especially when limited time was allowed for interesting spots. Again, the actual visits are more like 2 full days because the 2nd and 3rd days were half day tours. Recommended but have to lower expectations.
The tour was very touristy! The low point was when we payed a ridiculous amount to see a Flamenco show and halfway through the show someone came up to take our picture, handed us the picture then came back later and asked for us to pay for it. TACKY!
Our tour guide was well informed and seemed to know a fair amount of history.
Hotels were nice.
The locations we stopped in were excellent and would have loved to know more about the places. Maybe think about providing a more detailed itinerary to people that includes history and other notable facts that they can read while on the bus.
Overall the trip was average. Getting started in Madrid was totally disorganized. Our Guide spoke too much in Spanish and too little in English, the two dinners offered poor food and we had to drag around our own luggage. Organization was not on a par with other bus tours we have taken. No bathroom on the bus was very inconvenient. Not impressed overall.
