5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

A very informative tour with lots of variety. Spend many hours driving in the bus between cities, which gives you the opportunity to see much of the country. Excellent tour guides.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The tour was very good. There is quite a bit of time spent on the tour bus travelling between the cities, so keep that in mind. Typically, the guided tours are in the morning and the rest of the day is free time. Our tour guide 'Marina' was great. The good thing about tours is that you get to see cities and places that aren't as popular. Valencia was probably my favorite on the whole tour. I probably would not have seen Valencia if I didn't do a tour.

From meeting our tour guide, Carlos, on the first day to saying good bye to him on the last, this trip was spectacular! He was so knowledgeable and passionate about Spain and all that we saw. He made excellent suggestions of things to see and places to eat and even foods to try. We enjoyed every minute of this tour.

Loved the tour from beginning to end. We had a fantastic tour guide (Carlos) and driver (Fernan). The only disappointment was the accommodation that was offered.


4 star rating: Recommended June 2017

Valencia, Barcelona and Zaragoza are beautiful cities with distinct atmospheres. The people were friendly, the food was great, the sights beautiful. Yolanda was our tour guide and she was very nice. However the bus was very uncomfortable, the seats were narrow, hardly any leg room. I paid for superior 4 star hotels. The hotel in Valencia was nice, the rooms were comfortable and clean, and the breakfast buffet was very good. On the other hand, the rooms in the hotel in Barcelona where we had to sleep for two nights were rundown and too warm, and I felt that the hotel neighborhood was sketchy. Also, I didn't like that the bus would stop for us to have lunch at highway rest stops! Not my idea of a fine meal while vacationing in Europe.

The tour guides were great especially the head guide "Joseph" who made the trip perfect. He managed to mix historu, information, direction, and guidence along with laughter and jokes which made the trip more enjoyable. The tour is well planned but perhaps we needed an extra day in Barcelona in order to visit all remarkable places. The 4 stars Tryp Oceanic Hotel in valencia was wonderful but the Hotel in Baercelona was more of a 3 stars hotel and not 4.
I would only advise that for all tours, it's better for the toured guied to start the trip, and later people can have their free time, for people not to visit the same places twice.

We enjoyed this tour. Our translator Josef (and team) were terrific and very patient with our group. Would have been nice to spend more time in Barcelona but this tour did present a nice overview of the 3 areas.

Hugo, the guide is the saving grace of this tour.
The tour operator was good and quick in resolving issues on the ground.
I think though that more places/activities perhaps can be added in the tour to make the money and travel time worth. Location of Hotel 505 in Barcelona was too far from the attractions. Hotel staff were not friendly (especially in the restaurant). Hotel facility was also not up to standards -- this hotel should not be used by the tour operator anymore.
