This is one of the best trips I have taken to see part of Andalusia. To see the beautiful Alhambra is worth the trip.
This was an amazing tour; it went deep into the history of Spain. It really highlights the best of art, history, and architecture. This was a wonderful side trip from Madrid. We loved our knowledgeable, fun, and courteous guide. It was like traveling with longtime friends!
The hotels were good (clean and safe places to sleep) and in some cases had an excellent location for an evening walk. The food was OK (very edible). The bus and guide were excellent. We saw a lot in a little time. I would go with Viator again.
The trip was fantastic! Everything was good. The hotels? Good. The excursions? Good! Spain? Wonderful!!!
The tour was well worth the money. It included everything that the guide books said should be seen or done. Our guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and very connected as to getting good seats, favorable positions, etc. The hotels were clean and convenient. The food, while it could have been better, was still alright and edible. The bus was clean, well maintained, smooth riding and came with an excellent driver.I would recommend this tour and tour operator to anyone going to Madrid.
It was very convenient to take this tour. Our guide Joseph was very good. The first thing he did was to give us his cell phone number. He was very helpful and very fun. He would explain everything in 3 different languages and would answer all our questions. The hotels were surprisingly very good, clean and near enough to city centers so one could take the bus or train for those free times. The selection of the food was good too. The bus was clean and air conditioned and the driver Pedro was polite and a caucious driver. We had several different tour guides in addition to Joseph in each city. Lena in Granada was good. Maria in Toledo was good. The Alhambra guide was great and the Seville guide was ok. Overall we purchased the 4 star and we were happy.
The tour guide made this trip as he was humourous, helpful and very willing to repeat things to ensure understanding. The hotels were what we expected but everyone in the group felt that there should only be one choice of hotel as sometimes you can lose time just dropping people at the 2 different places. For the little bit extra we paid for the hotel upgrade, it was worth it and should be the only option. We enjoyed all our stops and excursions and consider this part of Spain our favourite!
all great except for having the 2 hotel level options. We paid to upgrade to 4 star hotels but were always dropped off after the 3 star hotel guests and picked up first in the morning because the bus driver didn't want to drive back and forth.. We expected to be treated accordingly to the upgrade. So when we were tired at 7pm we had to wait in the bus while our tour guide sorted out check-ins for the 3 star guests. Some nights it was 1 hour before we got to our room after our tours had finished. Not exeptable really. I would never do a bus tour with hotel options again. Otherwise everything was great.
The 5-day tour of Cordoba, Sevilla, Ronda, Costa del Sol, Granada and Toledo was well worth the money. It was very enjoyable with excellent guides, good arrangements and adequate pace to give me the time to see the breathtaking and amazing sights around these cities. My guide Josef was very funny, entertaining and very informative, and Pablo is a very good bus driver. My warm regards to the new friends I met during the tour - Lindsey, Lorraine and Ken (from Aust), Pat and Ian (from UK), Yoshi family, the two girls from US and so many others.
The staff was helpful and we saw many beautiful sites in a few short days. We liked our hotels too, which were clean, comfortable and close to sites. Only drawback was rising so early every day. That made for some tired cranky teenagers traveling with me.
