This was a wonderful Tour. Margarita was an excellent guide.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Very good tour with excellent tour guide Hugo and driver Merino. Tour is conducted in Madrid by the largest tour company in Spain so you get good hotels. Time in Granada and Toledo is not enough but it gives you a reason to return to Spain to see those 2 amazing places..

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Opportunity to see some amazing places in a relatively short time. Marina looked after us at all times and made sure that everything ran smoothly including helping us with potential train strikes following the tour. Some long days but really worth it

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The experience was awesome. The tour guide and driver were excellent.

It was a slow paced tour with lots of free time. I would also suggest to have 2 versions of this tour, one for 4 days and another for 3 days for those who would like to do it quicker.

The choice of attractions were excellent. I would suggest that Alcazar must have been included as a mandatory attraction with guide instead of optional in Seville in 2nd day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This a great tour. We had to make a change a week before to add one person. We were not charged extra for a late fee. As for the tour, the guide was very good and we saw all the highlights. The hotels were excellent and everything was very timely. I would recommend it.

As advertised, this tour was everything they said it would be, plus a whole lot more! We agree with one of our travel mates, who has already done a review. There is no way my sister and I would have seen so much of incredible Spain in four days, on our own, in the time that we had. We were extremely fortunate to have Josef as our guide. He was organized, knowledgeable, personable, and just plain fun. Josef spent time with each person/family individually and really was a trooper after an incident that rendered him limping for much of the tour but he NEVER complained one bit, and quite the contrary, downplayed it. We were also impressed by our driver Miguel, who seemed to be able to navigate areas that I would never have dreamed I would drive through.
I feel this tour is very much worth anyone's time. We had a varied age group, teens to 70's. It can require a significant amount of walking , but you do have the option to take it a little easier if you need to. I've seen other reviews that remark about lack of restroom facilities on the bus, but Josef and Miguel made sure we had appropriate stops along the way.
Also have to give a huge thumbs up to the local guides. They were excellent as well.

Guess a five star rating says that we would do this again...if you choose to take this tour, we hope Josef is your guide!

Well organized. The tour leader, Margarita ? gave us excellent information and really saw to it that the group was comfortable and happy.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This tour was fantastic! We would have never seen so many interesting and beautiful places on our own in 4 days. Our guide Josef was experienced, knowledgeable and funny. Our driver Miquel made sure we got everywhere safe and on time.
Hotels were nice. Food good and plenty to choose from. We did not purchase any extra activities but used our free time to explore more on our own. We even had a chance to sit by the rooftop pool in a hotel in Seville after all day walking. We highly recommend this tour if you are time constrained. Next time we would continue all the way to Barcelona as they have a longer tour option as well.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The tour was excellent and saved me a lot of planning. It took me to places that were fabulous and that I would not have known to see: the Moskita in Cordoba, the Alcazar in Seville, and of course the Alhambra. The people were terrific and most of the tour guides were excellent. The hotels were excellent first tier hotels. The only negatives: The buses should have toilets, and they could use more leg room between seats. The food at the Melia in Seville was pretty bad but at the Melia in Granada, it was excellent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Would highly recommend. Grace was a fun and careful guide. Happily spent more time than we expected at the great mosque at Cordoba and at the Alhambra in Grenada. Both really fabulous tours. Hotels were fine. Food was mixed. On the road it was very good self service. Food at Melia Lebreros in Seville was pretty terrible, but at Granada it was excellent. Boat tour in Seville was a wonderful extra didn't do the flamenco.
