5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

From meeting our tour guide, Carlos, on the first day to saying good bye to him on the last, this trip was spectacular! He was so knowledgeable and passionate about Spain and all that we saw. He made excellent suggestions of things to see and places to eat and even foods to try. We enjoyed every minute of this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Loved the tour from beginning to end. We had a fantastic tour guide (Carlos) and driver (Fernan). The only disappointment was the accommodation that was offered.
