Our travel agent specifically planned a wonderful vacation to Spain and Portugal for us. Based on our interests, he designed a perfect mix of activities - private tours of major attractions in each city on our day of arrival, a second private tour the next day of special neighborhoods or neighboring cities (Barcelona - the Gothic quarter; Madrid - Toledo and Flamenco show; Seville - tapas tour in Triana; Lisbon - Sintra and Cascais), and a third day to explore on our own, with recommendations for sights and restaurants from our agent and our guides.
All transportation, including high speed trains and private car, were arranged, along with a driver to take us to and from our hotels. The hotels were perfect for us. They were small and charming, on quiet streets, yet close to all tourist attractions.
One huge benefit was the mini-wifi router that our agent gave us with a SIM card to use in Spain, so we carried our wifi with us. That really helped us get around, post pictures, find restaurants.
Our guides were wonderful, very knowledgeable and flexible. Our agent was flexible also, working with us through several iterations of our itinerary. We loved getting to meet him in Madrid, and are enjoying his gift of olive oil now at home.
Tapas and Gaudi house in Barcelona, Sintra and Cascais in Portugal, watching Euro 2016 soccer in Irish bar in Seville. Wandering the narrow streets in each city, early in the morning and late at night.
Well, if we could spend more time in each city we would, or add an extra week to rent a car and drive around southern Spain, which we had considered during our planning phase.
