Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 4-Day Spanish Mediterranean Cities Tour: Valencia and Barcelona from Madrid. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The tour was very good. There is quite a bit of time spent on the tour bus travelling between the cities, so keep that in mind. Typically, the guided tours are in the morning and the rest of the day is free time. Our tour guide 'Marina' was great. The good thing about tours is that you get to see cities and places that aren't as popular. Valencia was probably my favorite on the whole tour. I probably would not have seen Valencia if I didn't do a tour.
Great tour guide, great experience, fantastic walking tours, great rooms and the group became very close due to the atmosphere. Jusep was awesome!!!!!!!
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.
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.
The tour guides were great especially the head guide "Joseph" who made the trip perfect. He managed to mix historu, information, direction, and guidence along with laughter and jokes which made the trip more enjoyable. The tour is well planned but perhaps we needed an extra day in Barcelona in order to visit all remarkable places. The 4 stars Tryp Oceanic Hotel in valencia was wonderful but the Hotel in Baercelona was more of a 3 stars hotel and not 4.
I would only advise that for all tours, it's better for the toured guied to start the trip, and later people can have their free time, for people not to visit the same places twice.
Too short! Cities and towns are so beautiful and lots to enjoy BUT you have litros time in most of them to explore! Guided were great especialky our whole excursion tour guide, Josef from Catalunya!!! Lots of knowledge and culture... assisted the whole time. Best City guides... Córdoba and Granada.
We enjoyed this tour. Our translator Josef (and team) were terrific and very patient with our group. Would have been nice to spend more time in Barcelona but this tour did present a nice overview of the 3 areas.
Hugo, the guide is the saving grace of this tour.
The tour operator was good and quick in resolving issues on the ground.
I think though that more places/activities perhaps can be added in the tour to make the money and travel time worth. Location of Hotel 505 in Barcelona was too far from the attractions. Hotel staff were not friendly (especially in the restaurant). Hotel facility was also not up to standards -- this hotel should not be used by the tour operator anymore.
