We are so glad that we had this travel agent arrange our trip to Northern Spain. The Itinerary he created after interviewing us about our interests would have been impossible for us to create on our own, not knowing the region at all. Without his help we would have wasted half the trip trying to arrange to do even a small part of the things we were able to do in our 9 days in Spain and the Basque country. Included in his planning were : great hotels, train and plane tickets,car rental, tickets to the Gaudi sites with tour guides in Barcelona so we did not have to wait in lines to get in, three very excellent private tours in San Sebastian and Bilbao with amazing local guides, and a trip to the gorgeous Picos de Europa mountains to end the trip in a relaxing and scenic locale. Also provided was a comprehensive printed guide book tailored to our trip with much detail about every location, including restaurant recommendations, alternate places to visit along the way, etc. All the arrangements were flawless and , having traveled a lot, we appreciate how much work goes into this type of planning. It made our time in Northern Spain into our best travel experience ever. This agent is very good at what he does and is very much oriented toward providing an exceptional experience for his clients. And he remained very calm and professional as we created (I am sure) some stress for him before the trip was finalized.
While we really enjoyed Barcelona and seeing the sites, we agreed that the Basque country (and San Sebastian and Bilbao) was our favorite part of the trip. Seeing the Rioja wine region was also a special highlight on a private tour with an excellent guide. All of the guides our agent picked were all excellent, but the three guides in San Sebastian, La Rioja, and Bilbao were beyond expectations.
I would have liked more time in each location,of course. As it was I can't imagine changing any part of this trip. It was designed to make efficient use of the time we had, with enough free time to explore on our own. The pacing was really perfect.
