We loved working with our agent at this Spain travel company. She offered good itinerary suggestions and really listened to our input. Most importantly, she worked with our restricted budget. We booked all hotels, train tickets and transfers before departure. We stayed in 6 cities and when we got the packet from our agency I was delighted to see how organized it was. Each city was in a different plastic bag with a map and packet. Each packet had historical information, must-see sights and restaurant/bar recommendations and each map had the train station and hotel and any other appointment marked on it by hand. We loved having this basic structure in place so we could focus on what to see and where to eat/drink. She also answered a lot of my questions, some about packing, some regarding reserving museum/attraction tickets ahead of time.
In Barcelona, we were amazed at Gaudi's Sagrada Familia.The Picasso Museum and traveling out to Dali's Theatre in Figueres were well worth it. We saw a beautiful sunset in Seville while walking along the river during the evening paseo. The gorge in Rhonda is gorgeous, definitely worth a day and night (at the parador!) even though it's not as easy to get to as other cities. Our agent booked us at a flamenco show in Granada that was awesome. We knew we would be fascinated by the Alhambra in Granada, but we were delighted by the Mezquita in Cordoba. In Madrid, the surprise hit was the Sorolla Museum.
More in general, we really enjoy creating picnics to eat on the trains while planning our adventures in the next city. We appreciated relaxing into the tapas lifestyle and really enjoyed the food and wines of Spain.
The only thing we would have done differently is splurge a bit more to upgrade our last hotel in Madrid.
