We were pleased with the trip . We had a good guide and the hotels and food was above our expectations. The tour overall was great, but I would have liked to have a little more time in some of the places we stoped, but I realize we only had 4 days and no company can totally please every one on the tour as far as how they divide the time in each stop.
We are very satisfied with the agency's choice of hotels. It's worth paying additional money for 4 star accommodations.
Glad we did this tour, very satisfied--transportation, accommodation and food were all 4 star.
Absolutely phenomenal. The best way to see Andalucia without any hassle. Our tour guide was excellent. The local guides were great as well except for the Alhambra -which we complained about. The group size was ideal there were 12 people and two children. The 3 star accomodation was sufficient clean, comfortable, pretty and we never once regretted taking that option. The people on our tour who chose the 4 star option seemed pleased with their hotels as well. The food was good some meals were plain, some meals were fancier but both were always delicious and enough to fill us up. There are tours added on if you choose to do them. I would suggest the artistic tour of Seville which includes a guided tour of the Alcazar - definitely worth it. The hotel in Seville 3 star is more in the city. However, the hotel in Granada isn't but it is right beside the Alhambra up on a hill which makes for some nice views. We had done a lot of research prior to going and honestly found this to be the cheapest and easiest option for seeing Andalucia. I would recommend it to anyone who is on a time constraint, money constraint or wants to eliminate the stress of having to organize the tour yourself.
This was 100% worth the price! We stayed in 3-star hotels that felt like 4-stars. The meals were delicious. Our guides were knowledgeable. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
Despite the weather and inbetween Christmas and New Years - we were able to see a lot!
It was great. The tour was amazing. I wish I had more time to visit more. Thank You Viator! Thanks to our tour guide that we met.
The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the sites we visited.
The tour was very well organized. The hotels were of good quality, 4 star, and were strategically located in the towns visited.
We very much enjoyed all the places the tour took us, country side view during bus travel was excellent as well.
The trip was a great experience, as we got to see the most important cities in Andalusia on a well-planned and comfortable schedule. The guided tours were very well explained, and we were given an extensive insight into the Moorish and medieval history of these beautiful places. We could never have managed it on our own! We highly recommend this tour.
Excellent travel experience. Four star hotels were first rate. Our tour guide was awesome. He was very professional and on top of things. He was organized and scheduled events well. It was one of the best tours I have taken in travel through Europe.
What can I say - Cordoba, Seville and Granada are simply amazing cities. Some of the finest architecture in Europe, I would argue. Plus the food, nightlife and overall atmosphere of these cities is simply amazing. This is a great trip.
We absolutely loved this tour. The coach was extremely comfortable, the guides, both our chief guide and local guide, were wonderful. They were so knowledgeable and passionate about their tours. The hotels were very well run and extremely clean. We didn't even have to put in for a wakeup call in the mornings; our guide made sure we would be up and about in time to catch the bus. There was ample time for a leisurely breakfast and just the right amount of free time in each of the cities. For the more ambitious traveler there are plenty of extra tours available. The food was great. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to feel the beauty, the history, and the glory of Spain.

My tour to Cordoba, Seville, Granada, and Toledo actually made my trip to Spain worthwhile. I had gone to Madrid for a conference and was bored. But this tour made my trip absolutely perfect!
A friend and I recently visited Lisbon and Spain, and we decided to take a tour in the middle of our trip to avoid the hassles of driving and arranging transportation and tickets to some of the sights. This tour was absolutely wonderful. We had a great guide, perfect accommodations, and just the right amount of time to see each of the sights. We would highly recommend this tour and will use Viator in the future for other excursions.
Our main guide was phenomenal. The other city guides were fantastic. The sites were exactly the ones I wanted to see. Hotels were great. Even the meals were surprisingly good. The extra side tours were worth it. Even the bus driver was great. My only suggestion was that I would forgo the lunch in Granada on the last day and just head back to Madrid. It made it too long of a day and wasn't necessary. Other than that splendid trip! Well worth it.
This was a wonderful tour. Everything we wanted and more. This is the time of year to travel - bus not very full, wonderful companions, great guide/escort, four star hotels great - food great, loved learning about the history of Spain. Would go again.
Our tour guide for 4 days, Mariola, is such a pleasant lady that she takes care of us like a mommy. She's quite adept and talented lady who speaks English, Spanish and French maybe more.
Downside is the hotel in Seville, Melia Lebreros, which is old, worn and needs serious refurbishing. The room is dirty, we sneezed the whole time because of the dirty carpets. The tub is slimy that my companion slipped, fortunately nothing serious. Food is equally bad. This hotel will destroy the tour's reputation.
Hotel in Granada is better but not worth it either.
Tour guide Luis in Cordoba is so full of himself that most of the time he talked about his accomplishments and his son. We like to know about the place not him. Tour guide Lucia in Alhambra is amiable, accommodating but stern.
The itinerary is quite full, so many places, so little time sigh. Wish we can come back and explore more places.
On the whole a good trip, excellent tour guides and covers the most important places in all the cities.
Price is good. Only one thing, the hotels take it a bit easy on the cleaning, esp. the toilets and the towels and bed sheets does not even look like they have been changed! perhaps they thing these group tour guys are never going to come back.
Great experience. Josep was the best! Very entertaining, kept the trip fun, not boring at all. All day bus ride was a long time! Didn't realize we would be on the bus that long, all day.
The trip to southern part of Spain was definitely a highlight of our entire vacation. Every city and and historical site we visited was awesome!
My only comment is that our tour guide was average. It was not well organized and the facts he provided were limited could have read everything in a tour book ourselves.
The tour was generally good and the sights were amazing! However, I was slightly disappointed that there was no toilet on the coach since it was quite a long drive, and also that some of the panoramic tours did not include some must-see's and that we had to pay additional for them.
