This tour was not very well organized. Everyday there were a new set of travelers - some leaving the tour and some joining the tour. The Hotels were average. The bi-lingual tour was very confusing and a waste of time. If the local tour was either Spanish or English, we could have finished in half the time and had more free time or we could have seen more sites and got more information about the sites. We being vegetarians, we did not get any good food at all except for breakfast buffet. The lunch options were salad and canned spaghetti.
Booking the 4-night tour of Andalusia was one of the best ideas my husband and I did when considering how to see and tour all the towns we hit on our tour of the south of Spain. The tour makes it so easy for you to enjoy your time and take in the sights without having to worry about: booking hotels, tours, or transportation. When I first planned our trip to Spain, many of our friends said that we were being too ambitious since we wanted to see all of the cities the tour hits. We were initially planning to go it alone via rental car or trains, but we quickly realized how stressful it was going to be to keep track of it all. We decided to let go and have someone else deal with the accommodations for us. We also ended up meeting some of the other people that were on the tour. You end up getting to know the group you're with since you'll be spending a lot of time traveling together. That was a welcomed surprise. Finally, our tour guide, Begonia, was the best! She spoke English and Spanish (since the group was mixed and there were all kinds of nationalities on our bus). As we traveled from city to city, she would talk about the history and background of each place and give us quick facts. The tour itself was well-balanced. You are able to go on guided-tours of sites but also had a good amount of free time. We really appreciated that. Breakfast and dinners were covered, so all we had to worry about was lunch (unless you wanted to do dinner on your own). All in all, we would definitely consider doing something like this again if we were on a time crunch in a new country and wanted to experience as many cities as we did on this trip!
We were really excited about this tour and it had good and bad points.. We had bad luck with the weather, which they can not control, rain and alot of times pouring rain while at the stops... Of course often better when driving down the road....Hotel in Seville is a little run down with some carpet looking pretty stained but right across the street from an historic wall. The first night they gave us a very set menu. absolutely no choices. 50 percent of our group either didn't like their salmon or don't eat it..Salmon something a majority will eat??? We were only 7 so I guess usually they do a buffet...Next night was and that was a little better.. Their breads are wonderful and pasteries.. they have the nices almond cake and little pieces of brownies in morning which were great.. hot foods not hot enough for me...Nice little bar in hotel. They give u too much free time.. leave u downtown and tell u how to get back to hotel .. maybe they should give u a few hours and come back for u.. We felt deserted at times but we also thought the bad weather made it worse.. Did an optional tour in Seville but really only got a tour of the Cathedral which was great but only about 1 1/4 minutes extra for 45 euros little steep we thought... I wouldn't skip river cruise really nothing much to see...we skipped the Flamengo that night but others said it was good to long of a day and too early next day for us... They tours they included are rather short and again cuz our group was smaller they didn't have all the optional ones....In Marbella wanted to see another church and Isabella's and Fernandos tombs but it was on your own again and rained.. Los Angeles hotel is rather unique and interesting.. I also thought dinner was tastier there.. To me they had the most interesting flavors.. they others were rather boring foods...Granada Alhambra tour wonderful just about made the trip.... Toledo I loved but again a lunch with a totally fixed menu no choices but a tastier restaurant... I guess they do this Spain ..Americans expect some choices.. I would have rather spent more time in Toledo and skipped the lunch... Tour guide in Toledo was very knowledgeable but seemed annoyed for some reason??? and walked us so fast and talked faster than i do and that is fast...You need more time there... They told us about the wonderful mazapan .. showed it too us and we didn't even have time to buy some???? If you want a totally inclusive tour you may not like this one.. They do have alot of optional tours but that also adds to the cost .. so we found it a little deceiving.. and also they wanted cash thought they would allow credit cards and didn't want to brave the atm machines.. unsure of the charges etc...There really was too much free time.. that Begona ..tour guide ..gives you some guidance but u r on your own.. We expected more formed tours.. ones we had were good.. Doing again i would look for one more inclusive even if a little more money but that's knowing what i know now
The tour guide and driver were great, but the way the tour is set up gives too much free time and we had to find things to do and see and find our way back to our hotel 2 of the 4 days. The dinners at the hotels were not very good. The breakfasts were better as they were standard breakfast fare. At the hotel in Seville, the hotel wanted all of us to sit together I think because they didn't want to clean up more tables. The main waiter/manager seemed upset that we all took different tables, and the next night he made us all sit together. I don't think any of us wanted to, especially since people spoke different languages and couldn't communicate, which made it even more awkward. The food in the hotel in Seville was also the worst. The tour says it included admission to museums, but the only admission it really includes is to the Alhambra. In Seville we did have a nice walking tour with a local guide, as well as in Toledo, but a lot of this tour was getting dropped off around 1 and then finding something to do/see, then find our way back to our hotel for dinner at 8pm. I think the tour was fine, but it could have been amazing if it was planned better. We were also annoyed that it said no pick ups/drop offs unless on the Gran Via, but when we asked for a pick up since our hotel was on the Gran Via they said they couldn't. Overall it was okay. I think the nice tour guide and driver made it better since they were very pleasant and the tour guide told a lot of interesting history.
The tour took us to the most beautiful sites in Spain. The local tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Our in house tour guide, Maria was wonderful. The driver was courteous, professional and the bus was clean. We stayed at three 4-star hotels with fantastic views of the cities. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this tour. And it was affordable too.
