The 8 day Spain tour was great. but booking through Viator was not. Viator did not give our arrival flight to the local agent Julia Travel so therefore when we arrived at the airport after travelling 12 hours, we didnt receive a airport transfer. Viator is very hard to communicate with, you have to ask them several times for infirmation. Julia travel was great, I would reccommend the tour! Our guide Margarita was great, very informative!

A trip of a lifetime with my daughter. We visited so many places that will be etched in my heart for years. Wish we could have spent more time in some of the places but overall it was a great experience.

Poor administration/coordination by the 3rd party contractor, Julia Travel. On the first day, we were picked up from the airport, dropped off at our hotel, and that was it. No notification nor communication as to the scheduled of activities for that day nor subsequent days of the tour. Decided to call Julia Travel first thing in the morning the following day but have to wait for an hour since their office starts at 8AM. Finally got connected past 8AM and we're told to rush to the city center office to join the City Tour at 8:45AM and get our itinerary. Took a quick taxi ride and paid the driver 10 euros. Were told to join the City Tour and the itinerary will be handed over right after. When the tour ended, we could have spent the time sightseeing and shopping since we have the rest of the day free. Instead, we have to take a long walk to the office for the copy of the itinerary. Still it wasn't ready when we got there. Our record was somehow lost or misplaced. When finally found, we were given a copy of the tour contract and were told to pick up the itinerary from the tour guide in Madrid. No apologies given to us for the inconveniences nor compensation for the 10 euros spent on taxi fare.

Had a time of our life in this tour made in June 2014. We just love it! Well organised itineraries. The places we visited were simply beautiful and amazing. A comprehensive collection of must visit places in Spain. Friendly and knowledgable guides. Higjly recommended.

Overall trip was good but the initial Barcelona part of the trip was a mess. There were no instructions left for us at the hotel. We would have missed the Barcelona bus trip as no instructions were left for us. If one signs up for an escorted tour, it should be escorted!

The Barcelona section of the tour was challenging as no information was provided regarding locations for the tour/pick up times etc and I had to contact their office to find this information out. The Madrid and southern Spain section was incredible and well worth it. Our guide Margarita was brilliant.

This is a 4 days tour not 8 days we couldn't enjoy our trip to Barcelona they were not organized at all.

In the beginning the tour is a slow start, in Barcelona and Madrid, you basically get an airport transfer and half day tour to see the outside of popular sites. You're better off skipping the tour and just getting a hop on hop off tour or just get a metro pass and site see so that you're on your own schedule, seeing what you want when you want. By the time we did the half day tour we had already seen the sites on foot earlier in the day. The only thing we didn't get to do that was part of the tour is Park Guell which is really nice, that's the picture in the 8 Day Spain tour. The tour really starts after you go to Madrid and get on a bus to go to Cordoba through Toledo, which I could have bought the 4 day tour. There aren't too many entrance fees included, so you're on your own for a lot of it. The tour guide really was the savior on this trip because up to this point we were a little bummed with the package cause it seemed like we overpaid for some transfers and hotel bookings. Our tour guide Josep was very funny, gave us really good tips for food, where to go, and the usual tour history of each destination. The rest stops were nice, they were large and hardly a line for the bathroom. Josep and the bus driver Sergio were very patient with the group, at two separate hotels, each guest left their passport and had to return so we were almost delayed 30 minutes going back and forth to each hotel, but they were very kind and did not embarrass the guests. The excursions are additional cost and you have to pay in cash, but they are relatively reasonable at around 40EUR per excursion. If you opt out of the excursions, all the cities that you visit are walking friendly. When in Spain, you have to try tapas, gin and tonic, marzipan and their ham sandwiches. The hotel meals that are included are bland and in Seville you have to pay for your drinks, so you could skip these too even though they are included in the tour.
