The tour was AMAZING!!!! We saw so much and for the price we paid, it was definitely a bargain! Carlos the tour guide was great and we made some good friends with some of the people on the bus. Spain is a beautiful country and this 5 day tour definitely allowed us enough time to not only see but explore that beauty!The hotels we stayed in were all of high quality...the atmosphere was inviting and the food was great. we didnt have to leave too early in the mornings which i loved(im not a morning person)and we had plenty of time in the afternoon and in the evenings to do some of our own exploring and shopping...I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see some of the best places in Spain at the best price. Thanks Julia travels and team...we loved it!!!Reviewed by: BELINDA C, May 2013
Excelent !Reviewed by: Delia P, May 2013
I really enjoyed all the cities we visited. Rhonda time could of been extended we were back to our hotel by 3:30p.m. I would of liked to have more time to visit the city. The guide could of given a few more instructions for dinner. I felt we were tropped of and fend for ourselves. All the tour guides in the cities we visited were very good. The bus driver really did a good job. While traveling on the highway Carlos was very informative. I am glad I booked the trip with you. I wi\ould rate the trip with a 5Reviewed by: Shelia T, May 2013
Excellent tour with no worries. Enough time to see the major sites with excellent local tour guides. Carlos our bus tour guide is also excellent and funny, sometimes he laughs at his own jokes when nobody gets it . If you want to see the best of Andalusia, this is the best tour with excellent hotels and excellent sites. Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Gerry, Canada, April 2013
Excellent small group tour. The Tour Director had a very good knowledge and the pre arranged walking tours with local guides were very informative. Pace of trip was to our liking and the four star hotels and meals all very good. Recommend the five day (in lieu of the three day) tour.Reviewed by: Peter C, April 2013
If you want to see A LOT of Spain in 5 days, this tour is for you! A great value for the money. My daughter and I chose the upgraded 4 Star Hotel option and were not disappointed. The hotels were clean, comfortable, great locations, safe, and well staffed with highly trained professionals. Two meals per day were provided- all you can eat buffets with plenty of choices.
Our tour guide Carlos was very knowledgeable, professional and had a great sense of humor. He has an excellent command of the English language. The bus driver also was noteworthy as there was a lot of driving and often on narrow roads. The bus was not full, so we had some room to stretch our legs, but anyone over 5'10" might be a little stiff if the bus is full. No bathroom on the bus as one might fond in the USA, but Carlos made sure we stopped often enough so all were comfortable.
In addition to the beautiful scenery and amazing sights we visited, one of the highlights for us was chatting a bit with the fellow passengers who represented many different countries and all religions.
A great trip for excellent value....
i really loved this tour! 4* hotel rooms (including food) were amazing. bus was new and comfortable since it wasn‘t completly full (we traveled in october, though). hotels weren‘t in city center, but not exactly far either so one could use public transport or taxis to get there without breaking the bank. hotel melia on the seaside (torremolinos) was a nice surprise.
overall, tour was well organized, guide carlos was great and informative. we had english, italian and spansh speaking people so explanations would get long, but it gave us time during other two explanations to take in views and make photos on locations. tour guides in cordoba, sevilla, granada and toledo were also great.
only downside were two optional activities: boat tour (sevilla), and gipsy night (granada). on the other hand, i highly recommend optional flamenco night (sevilla). having seen these professional flamenco dancers, gipsy night and their dancing was just plain sad. walking tour through gipsy quarter and beautiful nightview of alhambra after that somewhat made up for time lost.
i recommend spending free afternoon in sevilla visiting real alcazar (a must!) and cathedral. don't be scared by long queues, they move quickly. when in torremolinos, malaga visit is very doable, since it's less than 30-minutes train ride away and you can visit picasso's birthplace and museum.
one of the highlights was (oddly enough for andalucian tour) toledo. view of the city is one of the best views you‘ll ever see! it's also nice that stop in ronda is included, it's really a special little place.
all in all, great value for money, even more so if you get „4* for the price of 3*“ offer.
finally, travellers on my tour were really delightful.
recommending this tour to everyone!
It is a wonderful trip and worth the money. Almost all of the arrangements are excellent. I will definitly recommend my friends to join this tour.Reviewed by: Yasang Y, Saudi Arabia, November 2012
It was everything we hoped for and more. Carlos was great. The food and accommodations where excellent. We are looking to do it again in Italy.Reviewed by: Kathy F, October 2012
We took this tour with 3* hotel option. All hotels are very good and clean in very good locations - walking distance to city centers. I would highly recommend this option, if that what you care about.
Everything was well organized, on schedule and very informing. Our tour director Carlos was very professional and pleasant.
I only wish they would include a guided tour of Alcazar in Seville. It should've been at least an optional. We spent about 1 hour on the line to get there b/c this is a MUST in Seville, as well as the Cathedral.
Otherwise everything was to our taste: a good mix of guided tours and free time to explore cities on your own.
