We worked with this travel agent to book our trip to Spain. This was the first time taking our children (3 of them......16, 14, & 8) to Europe and my wife and I had not be in Europe for over 15 years. It was very important to work with an agency and individual who would make sure accommodations were suitable for 5 people. I talked with a few agencies and this travel agent was the first to basically insist that we talk live over the phone to really get a feel for what we were looking to see and do. Our agent worked with us to tailor our trip and really explain the different parts of the country and what would be the appropriate trip for our family based on the time of year, weather, etc. After multiple conversations and email exchanges we decided to focus 4 nights in Madrid and 4 nights in Barcelona with a few excursions from each. The accommodations in both cities were phenomenal. Both hotels were ideally suited for walking each city. The trip was a once in a lifetime trip for our family and was largely made so due to working with this agent and her company.
Every part of our trip was special. The guides that were arranged were knowledgeable of the places we were visiting. The private city guides were especially memorable and worthwhile because it helped us understand the layout of each city for exploring on our own. My two daughters dance so we wanted to attend a Flamenco Show. An absolute must for anyone interested in dance.....even my 14 year old boy was impressed. As much as we loved Madrid and the beautiful architecture, Barcelona is amazing due to the different areas of the city. There is the beach, then the gothic quarter and then all the amazing Gaudi architecture. Both cities were great.
Before going to Spain, I read alot about immersing yourself in the culture. Stopping for a Tapas at your leisure. We were so busy taking in the sites that we didn't take the time to immerse ourselves until the latter part of our trip. Next time in Spain, I'll take a few extra days to soak it all in.
