What an amazing tour package. I was a bit concerned about commuting to days with a group buyback Gracia, our guide was amazingly knowledgeable, intelligent and clearly knew her way around. Her tips and suggestions were spot on and the optional Sevilla Flamenco show was awesome! We enjoyed every second and would do it again in a heart beat! Thank you Gracia!

This 4-d trip gave us an opportunity to see some parts of the country and learn some of its history. We like all the guided tours in each city. Wish could spend more time in Seville and guided tours for the palace and the cathedral there. Hotel rooms were clean and comfortable but the meals were not impressive although we upgraded our package. Wish there is an English Speaking only tour

The guide was very informative. Toilet breaks were well spaced. Overnight hotels were good but the food in Granada was not well prepared. It would have been nice to have some free time in Toledo as ithe old city is interesting and we only had an hour or so there.

Excellent tour to explore the development of religious and political culture in Southern Europe from before Christ into the present time. These 4 cities were amazing in the architecture, art, and history. If you are interested in these topics, this is a good tour.There is a lot of walking so be prepared for that.Accommodations and food on tour good to excellent.Guides provided for the individual cites were excellent; very knowledgeable and approachable.

The original ad stated it was an English speaking tour which was accurate, however the tour guide was not accommodating to the Majority of English speaking guests. When explaining particular sites esp. on a bus the guide would always explain in Spanish first and after a seemingly long explanation would than explain in English, long after the item or attraction was long passed. Her concentration to the few were very evident not only to myself, but to the many other English speaking guests as well. The quality of the hotels were OK for the first stay, but was not pleasant for the second stay. The optional additional tours, (extra $$) were OK. Flamingo dance was the best, and the only one I was satisfied with. Would recommend this tour, but not without guarantee of English only.

The Tour Director mostly spoke Spanish which did not help most of the non-Spanish speaking tourists. Consequently, the whole idea of a guided tour was defeated.

Wonderful introduction to Southern Spain! Beautiful cities with knowledgeable and passionate local guides! Need to make time on your own at each city to see additional sites. Take time to visit the cathedrals and palaces that are not included on the tour. Book your skip-the-line ahead of time. The Spanish to English translation on the bus tour was good but not complete -- since we knew both Spanish and English, we knew that not everything was translated for the English speaking tourists. Take time to learn about the cities and sites before you take the tour and you'll be able to make the most of your visit. Skip the Gypsy optional tour in Granada. Enjoy!
