The best way to see southern Spain. We never thought a bus tour could be so fun and informative and we will do it all over again without any hesitation. All the tour guides in each town were very knowledgeable about the beautiful buildings we visited. The optional tours should not be missed. Seville, Granada and Toledo were definitely our super bonuses for this tour. Love it, love it, love it.
You get more than what you pay for !! Wow
This tour was amazing!
Good collections and transport from airports and train stations. No rep. at hotel and train station for detailed instruction.
Awesome trip. Great way to see Spain for the first time. We added a few days before and after in Barcelona and Madrid at our own expense so we can explore on our own. Met wonderful people in our group. Our tour guide Hugo and our Driver Antonio were very respectful and knowledgable.
It's good to have almost everything planned and transport arranged to the destinations. However, Madrid is all about sightseeing on the bus.
The arranged airport transfer on the last day did not arrive but the rest of the holiday was great!
Great tour to see many cities in one week. The first part was not guided, and somewhat haphazard. In fact, no one showed up to pick us up at the Madrid train station. We did enjoy the Barcelona bike tour though (booked separately). When we joined the guided tour in Madrid, it was well organized and quite busy, to see all those cities. Good overview though, and our guides were all great. We did the 3 star hotels instead of the 4, choosing to spend the extra money on the optional tours/ excursions. If we had to do it again, we would probably upgrade, as the 4 star hotels were in better locations for exploring on your own, outside the tours. The accommodations were just fine. Very different food for American palates though!
The 4-day Andalucia tour was good. The local tour guides were great. The hotels, except for the one in Granada (Los Angeles Hotel) were not as good as we expected. By the way, the worst hotel was the one in Barcelona.
The Madrid to Toledo leg of the tour was excellent. We encountered issues with the Barcelona leg as no instructions were given as to how the day tour was to be conducted. Instead of being picked up at the hotel, we found out that we had to go to the offices of Julia Travel directly to start the day tour. No instructions were left at the hotel nor were emailed by Julia Travel or by Viator (Julia maintains that it is Viator's duty - at that point the traveller is left between 2 conflicting parties). Needless to say, we missed the day tour and had to fend for ourselves. It appeared that the Barcelona leg is conducted by Julia Travel (Viator is only the middleman/broker) as a separate item from its Madrid to Toledo leg. The latter leg was more organized.
