Through Zicasso, we had the pleasure of working with this agent, the CEO of this Spain travel company who helped us plan an extraordinary adventure through Northern Spain. We started our journey in Bilbao, then went to San Sebastin and on through the Pyrenees to Barcelona. Spending 3 or 4 days in each spot was perfect as it gave us the opportunity to experience each location and really get a feel for the place. Our agent spent quite a bit of time with me in the beginning, wanting to get a better understanding of our interests and what type of trip we were looking for. In the end, he not only arranged for our hotels and transportation but made sure we had a personal guide for at least half a day in each city which made all the difference. Then he also arranged for specialty trips such as wine tasting in the Rioja Valley and Pintxos tastings in San Sebastain. He provided restaurant recommendations and some 'hard to get' reservations for each location and supplied us with a portable WiFi which we used while driving. And if that weren't enough, he also checked in with us every few days just to make sure that everything was OK. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Northern Spain is beautiful and I recommend it highly. I have been to Spain before but never had the time to explore this part of the country. Bilbao was probably the greatest surprise. I had always read that it was an industrial city and outside of the Guggenheim Museum, there really wasn't too much to see. We did not find that to be the case at all. Not only was the museum magnificent but walking along the river, exploring the main areas of town and the old city was really a treat and we found it a beautiful city to visit. The Aran Valley was also a pleasant surprise......a cluster of small villages within this majestic mountain range. We found lakes and waterfalls which were just breathtaking. I can only imagine how beautiful this area is in the winter!
Then, how could I not mention the incredible culinary experiences we had. Spain truly has some of the best food and wine in the world.
i really wouldn't have changed a thing. The itinerary was perfect for the time we had available and our agent made sure that we had something special to do every day.
