Terrific. Wonderful guide Joseph ? handled everything to our satisfaction and his funny personality was a delight. All the guides were great and I thought they were very patient with some of the impatient fellow travellers who would talk over the top of them or be demanding. The places we visited surpassed our expectations. We love Spain and want to come back!
