The trip this Spain tour operator planned and arranged for us was excellent, completely meeting and in most cases exceeding our expectations. The choice of hotels was decidedly to our taste and inclusion of breakfast in each location was much appreciated. The guides were excellent: knowledgeable and very enthusiastic to share their knowledge of Spain and the places we visited with us. They were very engaging and also took great care to accommodate my wife’s difficulty with walking long distances; all of this we valued greatly. I must also comment that the reputation of this tour operator for providing excellent service was widely acknowledged at the hotels where we stayed and by the guides we met. In all cases they commented that the tour operator was great to work with and was highly professional in providing an excellent product to their clients. We agree completely and we strongly recommend this Spain tour operator to anyone who is considering a trip to Spain. They are the best travel agency we have used to date in our 40 years of traveling in the US, Europe or Asia. Clara, our agent, paid particular attention to our interests, desires and budget which made the experience very enjoyable.
Meeting the locals; gaining so much information form the guides we had in each location visited. The guides were excellent. All of the guides were well informed and more than willing to share their knowledge with us. It was so much better than it would have been had we just wandered around on our own. Spain is a country with a very rich and varied history and the guides certainly 'educated' us on our tours and through discussions with us s we raised questions. It was learning with friends.
The tours in various cities (Seville, Barcelona and San Sebastian) of Tapas bars was a delightful way to begin to understand the culture of Spain on a personal level. Another highlight was spending time a one of the cooking clubs in San Sebastian working with the chef in a private cooking lesson.
Finally, the fact that the tour operator removed all the hassles of travel: seeking hotels, transfers to and from airports, train stations, etc. allowed us to focus on enjoying the country, the sights and the people, which is why one wants to travel to new places.
Spend a little more time in each location in order to delve into the local history and culture more deeply. We would also expand our itinerary to include areas of Spain were were unable to visit on this trip.
