Our Spain travel company did a wonderful job of listening to my needs and preparing the perfect trip for our family. As a homeschooling family, who was studying the Middle Ages, I asked our agent to develop an itinerary that would meet our educational needs as well as our travel needs. They did a great job and really went beyond my expectations in preparing educational experiences for us that were priceless. We had two travel snafus (left passports in a hotel safe and also left my daughter's iTouch at an apartment), in both cases, the team in Spain did a wonderful job of arranging for us to get our items back quickly. They did a great job.
We most enjoyed the personal experiences that our travel company planned. In Granada, my children went to the home of a local ceramic artist and painted traditional tiles based on patterns from the Alhambra. In Sevilla, our agent organized a visit to the home of two art restorers. The children learned about the art they were working on and even participated in some restoration themselves. At the end of the visit we were welcomed into the home of these two professionals and enjoyed a wonderful chat and some tea. They shared their vast art collection and encouraged my children to touch anything. In addition, we participated journeyed to a private home in Vejer de la Frontera and watched as two local musicians performed flamenco music -- the girls were encouraged to dance and really loved it. There are many experiences like these that we were so happy to experience Spain in such an intimate way.
The only issue that we discovered was that we had no laundry facilities along the way. We were supposed to have them in Sevilla but in the apartment we rented, the machine was broken. Even if the washer had been working, there was no dryer and due to the fact that it was a very rainy week in the area, we could not get our clothes clean and dry.
