Very attentive agency--they really listened to what we wanted out of this trip and hit the nail on the head with all the day trips they arranged. They also rescheduled one trip in order to avoid a worker strike in France and called us at our hotel (must have been 11PM their time) to make sure we were aware of the change. They also took care of a hotel payment issue without any hassle.
All three hotels, Hotel Le Sainte-Beuve in Paris, Horloge in Avignon and Espana in Barcelona were excellent choices. We could not have asked for better accommodations. Riding first class on the TGV was a great suggestion--lots of room, very comfortable. The Tapas tour in Barcelona was a great memory. Two of the bars were local places that we would have never stopped in had we even found them, but both were authentic slices of Barcelona.
It would have been nice to have a list of good restaurants in each city, maybe divided up by neighborhoods in the bigger cities, as we had some hit and miss meals. The trip from Avignon to Barcelona seemed very long out of the way. Early train to Lyon had us unable to eat breakfast before leaving, then the transfer from Lyon train station to airport it was recommended to take a taxi (for around 70Euro), but we took a tram which was available every half hour and located right next to the taxi stands outside the train station and only cost 2 x 15Euro (saved 40E). Lyon airport was difficult to navigate and it seemed like quite a process just to board our flight. We were basically exhausted by the time we got to Barcelona. I guess I would recommend avoiding that airport if possible.
