Most excellent tour! Can't praise more the tour company for working with such wonderful guides like Hugothe main tour guide and Carmenour Madrid guide, our bus driver Jesus, the local guides like Luis in Cordoba, Gloria in Seville, Triny in Granada and Angel in Toledo. And last but not least Mona and Sonia, the two ladies who kept us informed about the tour beforehand. Spotllesly organised from the start to the finish. We had a smaller group, and had plenty of time to visit different places as to have optional tours or rest. The hotels were excellent so as the food. Can't recommend it more.

An amazing tour! The tour was very well planned, loved all the locations we were taken too and the knowledge of the tour guides. Although the only thing to be advised is that in the winter time it can be cold and so pack accordingly.

This was an excellent tour.. Our guide was personable, organized and knowledgeable. The hotel in Granada wasn't central and that would be our only negative comment. The tour overall was well-paced, interesting and we had a great time!

i would recommend it! very well organized tour. we had a fantastic guide. the tour operator should just improve the tour in madrid by bus is not the best choice and the choice of the hotel in sevilla a little bit far from the downtown.

My tour guide Josep was amazing. He was very informative and very funny. We really enjoyed having him as our tour guide. There was some hotel confusion when we arrived at Costa del Sol, but the situation was resolved but we arrived late and didn't get to see anything there before moving on to our next stop. The places that we saw were all beautiful and very interesting. I would love to go back at my own leisure and re-visit some of the towns without being so rushed. The whole experience was fun though and we met a lot of nice people on the tour.

The trip was great! The guide was fun and the accommodations were all very nice. The bus was clean and comfortable. I saw all the places in Andalusia I wanted to. I was thrilled with the guides in Sevilla and Cordoba. They were very knowledgeable and interesting. I could have done without Costa del Sol because it was a touristy high rise on the beach. I wanted to see the culture -not other foreigners. This was the perfect time of the year because it was sunny but not hot. I think this is excellent value for money!!
