What can we say about this travel agent and her company to make sure anyone seeing this review will stop looking for any other travel agents for a trip to Spain. Spectacular, Adventurous, Overwhelmed by the hospitality and professionalism of all our guides and drivers. Our travel agent listened to us from the moment she responded to our Zicasso request. My wife and I were planning a trip to Spain to celebrate 25 years of marriage. We wanted to see the culture and history of a country with lots of it. We are not people who stay still and wanted every day to be something different. We started our planning around October and after two months of working with different agents this travel agent was most definitely the one I wanted to work with on this adventure. She was very punctual in her replies, let us provide input and provided on the spot recommendations and when it was all done had settled on a 15-day Spain excursion.
We traveled from Madrid to Cordoba to Sevilla to Granada to Barcelona as our home bases over the 15 day journey. We also had private guided tours and day trips to the following Spanish cities and towns, Toledo, Avila, Segovia, Ronda, Malaga, Girona and Montserrat. It was a lot in 15 days and we had one free day. Our travel agent provided us with very nice and centrally located hotels. Since we were traveling a lot we did not request 5 star hotels. What our travel agent did was provide us with accommodations that treated us like 5 star guests. We did not have any issues or delays with any of our reservations. All of our guides were prompt and very professional. We were actually blown away with the quality of people that led us across Spain and they all spoke very highly and kind of our agent. We have to give a lot of credit to this travel agent and her company. This Spain Adventure was more than we could ask for when we started. All of our guides were truly special. We will be back and we will definitely allow this travel agent to book us another adventure. We did a lot of walking and took in a wealth of information. Spain, the people and the country were lovely hostesses for two event filled weeks. We wish we could visit more often and everything that she did for us went off without any mishaps. This includes train tickets, tickets the guides had for "cut the line" which we would highly recommend and even our plane trip from Granada to Barcelona. We wish our travel agent the best in her own professional journey and will not hesitate to recommend this lovely lady to others considering Spain for an adventure. THANK YOU!
If we were going to pick our Ah Ha type of moments the city of Cordoba was just stunning in beauty. Plus, this was our first place where we could actually settle in for tapas and enjoy the locals. The Alhambra in Granada, you can stay all day. The views in Ronda were like from a picture book. Matter of fact, we have discussed going back to Malaga and Ronda. Ronda because it is peaceful and everyone is relaxed. Malaga because we just did a pitstop and my wife loves the beach. The beach there was very clean and getting to the center city from the beach is no problem. Every day there was something new and it helped tremendously that our guides were knowledgeable, actually local and were very patient with us.
For this particular trip we would probably not spend any time in Madrid. It was too New York City like and we were actually a little disappointed in the cuisine. Other than that, the adventure was all we thought it would be and more. We did a lot of homework on the places we wanted to visit and what to do. Given everything we wanted to do, maybe extended the trip to 18 days or so would have worked better. We did not do any shopping and there were a couple of places like Toledo with the ceramics and Cordoba with the leather shops that we may have been able to go at our own pace and discovered more of the local culture. Barcelona may have been a better starting place since they speak a lot of English.
