My wife and I returned home safely last night after such a memorable trip to Spain thanks entirely to your absolutely perfect arrangement for the trip.
Thank you so very much indeed for your efforts. Although I was thinking to call you in Spain to express our gratitude, the six hour time difference between the US and Spain wasn't easy to find a right time to speak with you on the phone as we were either on a tour during the day or late return from dinner.
Now we are home and I am wide awake in this wee hour of this first morning home due to the seven hour hour differnce, and I haste to write you to say thank you.
Upon arrival at Barcelona airport the driver was waiting in the arrival hall and took us to hotel very courteously, and we found in the room all the hard copied plan of yours that gave us a well informed plan to start the tour with the names of guide and the times to meet. The guide was a very professional gentleman with a wealth of knowledge and we had a very pleasant tour with him. The restaurant was in the right next alley from hotel and food was good. The next evening, the restaurant turned out to be very friendly with typical Italian/Catalonian dishes. My wife and I enjoyed their food very much.
On Tuesday it was very good suggestion of yours to take a train to Seville which made us to experience of witnessing the vast expanse of Spain with mostly orange groves. Upon arrival it wasn't any problem to go the Hall Principal with your clear instruction to follow to meet the waiting driver. The hotel was a very interesting place to stay with a labyrinth-like corridors to find your room with many courtyards and for even one guest room. The evening was another memorable one. The guide was indeed a perfect lady with very friendly character let alone her professional knowledge of history of the town. The evening was one of the most impressive evenings with the Flamenco show she chose to take us. We only learnt that night that the flamenco was an art expressing our humanlife and the artists, singer, dancers and guitarist, were so explicitly expressing the agony or the happiness of human life from deep in heart. They made us feel the way they performed and we were so moved to tear or to be happy as they led us with their performance.
The wine and tapas that followed the show was, as you said not to worry about dinner, a some kind of expierence and we had our guide with us and he taught us about flamenco and rhythm of the music while having wine and tapas here and there.
On the fifth your guide was good showing us the planned tour of all the historical places. and in the afternoon we took a boat ride on the river and visited a bull fighting ring with great interest. Unfortunately we had to cancel the restaurant you reserved for us which was the only one we cancelled. Since we were to leave early the next morning for Granada I asked to call them to ask if we could have an early dinner than the reserved time of 9:30, but they said eventhough they open from 9:30 they would practically have customers coming until around 10:30 and thus no way to have an earlier dinner. Thus we cancelled with regret. Other than that we went to all restaurants as reserved throughout the trip and found your suggestions of restaurants were all good as much as we wanted to experience local dishes of the areas.
As I am getting sleepy now I like to shorten this trip report rather short.
All in all I was lucky to have had you for asking our trip arrangement and I like to thank you for materializing our trip very comfortable and perfect in every way we needed to have. And all your guides were very professional and good history teachers of Spain with such a long history as a country. And I like you to pass our thanks to those guides of yours on your next contacts with them.
Thank you and with very best personal regards,
