Fantastic family trip - one of our best ever due to the impeccable planning and service provided by our agent and his team. Our trip started in Madrid and included day trips to Toledo, Segovia and LaGranja. We loved the boutique hotel which was our home base for those first days. Great location, elegant and unique. Our walking tour guides in each of these cities were fabulous - knowledgable and a pleasure to spend the day with. We ventured to Seville via high speed train for 2 days where the highlights were a biking tour of the city - such a fun way to see the sites and enjoy some exercise - and an evening "tapas tour" for dinner on our final night. We stayed in another gorgeous and unique property, located in a perfect area for lots of walking! The restaurants that our agent booked for us were outstanding! Our agent checked in with us throughout the trip to make sure that we were happy, and we even had the pleasure of meeting him for a pre-dinner cocktail one evening. How often does that happen? 5 star service!
We loved every single minute of this exquisite trip. Hard to pick just one or two "most memorable" moments! The two days in Seville were very special and much of this was due to our fabulous guide. We didn't think anything could top the biking tour we did with him, but we were proven wrong! For our final evening in Seville we sampled the menus at his favorite tapas bars - many of them hidden gems known only to the locals. Lots of great food, great wine, and many laughs! Another unique touch was our private dinner before the Flamenco Show in Madrid. We knew the show included dinner but we did not realize that we were arriving early to dine in our own room instead of eating with the crowds during the show. The food was fantastic and this was just one of the many special touches that the travel company had included in our trip. Finally, I would have to say that the people who helped us navigate this adventure were also one of the most memorable parts...our driver in Madrid, all of our guides in the various cities we visited and of course our agent, the owner....all of them just absolutely wonderful people and such a pleasure to work with and spend time with!
We would not do anything differently! For a one week visit, this trip was planned perfectly and we are so happy that our agent did not try to squeeze in a trip to another region/area. We have fallen in love with Spain and cannot wait to return and visit the other regions of this beautiful country, and when we do, we know that we will be in good hands with this local travel company!
