Well a few weeks have past for us to some perspective on the vacation our agent at this Spain travel company arranged for us in Madrid and Andaluca- it was fantastic! The accommodations were first rate-especially the smaller boutique hotels. The trip was well-paced for first time visitors; not just a quick in-and-out of famous sites, but time to also spend wandering the streets (and shops). The personable guides provided far more than just the check-off of historic facts, but gave real life to the stories of Crdoba and Alhambra. Going during and just after Easter, when the orange trees are blooming, filled the air with an unforgettable, fragrant bouquet everywhere we went.
The very real value of this company was your personal touch and local insights while we were planning the itinerary, and perhaps more importantly, how you assisted during the trip. When we left our passports in Crdoba, and before we had realized that we left them, you had already arranged to have them sent overnight to our hotel in Sevilla. When repairs on RENFE train tracks between Granada and Madrid meant an early morning bus ride to get an alternative train in Antequera, you arranged for a driver to get us from the hotel to the station.
All in all, we want to thank this for arranging a marvelous trip that introduced us to the beauty and history of Madrid and southern Spain. We hope to visit Barcelona and Catalonia in spring 2017 - and could not imagine travelling without this company.
For our first trip to Spain, wouldn't have changed anything. for future trips (and yes, we will book with Madrid & Beyond), would want to spend a day or so longer in each city, but fewer cities. Oh - and would have left swim trunks at home - thought it was hotter in Spain in April.
