Our travel agency provided a wonderful trip for us in Madrid, Toledo, Malaga, and Barcelona. Our travel planner was easy to work with and very responsive to our ideas and requests for places and activities that were most important to us. So many details were taken care of for us such as transportation between cities, and travel to and from airports. He was flexible when we needed to make changes to the itinerary and was available to us during the trip.
Madrid: Tour of El Prado, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. We loved walking around enjoying the cafes, sangria, gazpacho and paella! Our tour guide was not prepared to adjust the tour for our slow walking speed. He was not terribly engaging, just stating facts and seemed eager to be done with our tour.
Toledo: Great tour of the old city. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Loved the city, sights and stories.
Malaga: Beautiful city, loved the pace, plazas, people out everywhere all the time. Our hotel and the special room with the 360 view was fantastic! We loved sitting on the terrace reading and hearing the cathedral bells toll. We enjoyed the Pompidou Museum, Museum of Contemporary art and the Picasso Museum.
Barcelona: We had the special pleasure of being there for National Day of Catalonia or "Diada". There was a parade with musicians, people carrying torches, and the dancing giants. The next day everyone was in orange. Such a spectacle! We loved the Gaudi tour including the Sagrada Familia, and the Picasso Museum. The 360 tour, especially the helicopter ride was memorable and the night tour with the fantastic view and Magic Fountains were highlights.
Overall we loved the art, architecture and food!
We would be sure to alert the planner to our limited mobility concerns. We were unable to do the bicycle tour and ended up having 3 Gaudi tours! If we'd had more time and financial resources we would probably add more side trips to see the interior countryside.
