As two couples traveling to Spain for the first time, we could not have been more pleased by the itinerary and service we received from our travel agent and her company. During the planning stages, she was flexible, creative and willing to organize unusual trips, such as our excursion to Donana National Park. Upon arrival, we found that every aspect of our experience that our agent had a hand in was carefully organized, with all those nagging logistical details taken care of. She responded quickly to our questions and efficiently took care of any last-minute changes. Our lodging in every city was more than adequate and reasonably priced. Drivers were always on time and courteous. Our guides were friendly and spoke good English, and were especially helpful in getting us through the masses of tourists at the popular places we visited. Each of our guides had a degree in either History or Art History, and their expertise greatly enhanced our understanding of the buildings, sculpture and art we saw.
But the best part was having the opportunity to travel with our agent herself as she guided us from Granada through Ronda and Grazalema to Seville. Her friendliness and wonderful sense of humor immediately put us all at ease as she graciously and efficiently got us from one place to another. It was truly like traveling with a favorite cousin, and we all had a great time.
After we left Spain for Portugal, where we didn’t have anyone like our agent to help us, we understood all the more how much she had done to make our trip as worry-free as possible. We wouldn’t hesitate to ask this company to help us explore Spain further, and we will be happy to recommend this agent and this travel company to our friends.
In Barcelona, Sagrada Familia, Park Guel and the Picasso Museum were all wonderful. We also loved being able to walk around early-morning Toledo, and our visit to the Alhambra was spectacular. Early morning in Donana National Park found us watching rutting male Red Deer bellowing in the mist as they moved toward the woods. Finally, Ronda (after the tourists left) and Grazalema were beautiful and tranquil, and our agent was a wonderful guide.
Perhaps spend another day in Barcelona, especially if there was an opportunity to visit Ebro National Park. It would have been nice to visit a winery and/or an olive-processing plant.
