My sister and I took this tour at the beginning of August 2013 and we were both in general content with it. This package allowed us to visit a significant number of places in a very short timeframe and offered the convenience of having all travel and accommodation arranged for us for an affordable price. However, one can always nitpick on the details of the included services. One of the most important downsides was the rather mediocre English level of most of our tour and local guides in comparison to other guides we randomly bumped into later on. So, they remained somewhat laconic and distant. Moreover, the included city tours were superficial, some of them very short (Zaragoza 30 minutes on your own) and some comprised mainly glimpsing the buildings from the bus window (Seville). Optional city tours of Seville and Granada, and flamenco and zambra shows were offered for 30-40 euros each. We stayed in standard hotels and found them all acceptable and well located except that the service in Best Western Mayorazgo in Madrid was rather unwelcoming. When it comes to food, we couldn't emphasize it more, the included overpriced diner style dinners served in the hotel basement were a disgrace. Also, most of the lunch breaks on the road were in gas station diners while some of them could have been in the towns we visited. On a more positive note, our guide Josep accompanying us from Granada to Valencia and Barcelona was very helpful and gave us plenty of tips from Valencian delicacies to getting around town, visiting other sites in Spain and what not. All in all, I'd recommend it to those short of time or not adventurous enough to go around on your own.
