We had the most wonderful experience with the tour company and especially with the tour planner for our tour of Spain. The tour company ensured we did not have to worry about anything from the time we landed in Barcelona until our departure from Madrid. The tour company booked everything; our hotels, trains, chauffeured van transport, car rental, city tours and even restaurants. It was a wonderful trip. One of the highlights was the tour company arranged for a horse-riding expedition where we got to see a working Spanish horse ranch and farm/hacienda. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and family and given several demonstrations of Spanish horsemanship. Additionally, one of the gentlemen, (an excellent equestrian), took us on tour via horse carriage of the hills around Cordoba ending at a premier equestrian facility. The cherry on top was that, he let our daughter (a budding equestrian) ride and jump one of his champion horses. It is a memoir we will always cherish, especially our daughter.
The tour planner continually worked with us to ensure we had a wonderful trip of Spain. She was given our travel plans with very short notice, but was able to accommodate us despite us making many changes in travel plans. In fact, there were several times where we Skyped after midnight (Spain time) which helped instill a sense of confidence that the travel company and tour planner especially, are really putting well over 100% effort into our trip. One example was an unpredicted taxi strike had started in Spain a bit before our arrival in Barcelona. Initially we had plan to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel and then to the train station to start our trip of Southern Spain. With this option unavailable, the tour planner quickly booked a private van for the ride to the hotel and to the train station. Not an easy feat considering that demand for private vans skyrocketed, and the taxi drivers not taking kindly to competitors disrespecting their strike. The tour planner continually stayed in touch during our tour, checking to see if we enjoyed the day’s excursion and recommending places to eat at the various locations. She even took the time to meet us at the end of our trip in Madrid, where she gifted us a memorable framed photograph of us with the horse ranch personal, horse carriage, on some Roman ruin overlooking Cordoba. She is a lovely young lady full of energy and enthusiastic about her work.
We highly and heavily recommend the tour company and the tour planner for a tour of Spain, and will certainly consider using their services for our future travels.
