Our travel agent was awesome! He worked diligently to put together a program tailor made just for us. We are kind of oddball travelers who are more into the off-the-beaten-path kind of experiences. We do not like to shop but love to eat adventurous food. Our agent put together the most amazing, personalized book for us that he sent prior to our arrival that outlined everything. It had our individual tour information as well as other essential information on local transportation, suggested places to eat, language tips and additional sites not to be missed. The book served as a really important guide and now as a memory catalog with all the wonderful experiences we had on the trip he planned for us.
Our agent found a cooking class and some food tours for us that were wonderful. Even though he was on his own vacation at the time or our journey, he called to check on us and emailed to make sure everything was as pre-planned. At one point there was a hiccough with a hotel room and our agent called them and had it straightened out lickity split. He also sent us a lovely gift at the end of our tour filled with a foodie's delights. It was so thoughtful and personal.
There were so many amazing highlights. Of course Montserrat was spectacular- especially the cable car ride. I loved the cooking class. It was not for beginners and was just what i was looking for. We went on a day trip to a small fishing village in Basque country, Geteria. I absolutely fell in love with the place. It seemed like we were the only tourists there. Coming back we stopped in Zarautz to see some unbelievable rock formations. This hidden spot high on a cliff knocked my socks off. We also pigged out on a pinxtos night in San Sebastian that I will never forget. The guides were just fabulous.
Even though I am very glad I saw many of the Guadi sites in Barcelona, the city was just too packed with people and really exhausting just trying to walk around and avoid being hit by a bike, car or motorcycle in those narrow alleys. We would stick with the more out-of-the-way places on our next trip even though we might be missing a lot of amazing history and sites.
