We spent 16 days staying in Madrid, Cordoba, Granada, Seville and Barcelona. The trip was great and the planning was very easy. I cheated a little bet and started by referencing a trip I found on the KimKim destinations pages. As can always be anticipated, not everything works perfectly, but KimKim made corrections very quickly to allow us the best outcome. I just tweaked the activities and days a bit to suit our groups interests and abilities. The private tours were the highlights of our trip. In Cordoba, unfortunately I can't remember the guide's name, the private walking tour of the Mezquita, Alcazar and Jewish quarter was excellent. In Granada, Jennifer provided so much historical insight during the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens visit. Marcell took us on the Private Flamenco and Tapas Tour and provided great food and drink pairings. The Private transfer from Granada to Seville via Ronda was with Miguel. Miguel went above and beyond during the trip. Barbara was our private guide for a walking tour of Seville. Our Spanish Menu Cooking class had a booking error, but KimKim quickly got us into a Paella Cooking Class in Barcelona that was awesome.

Hotel Reviews
Petit Palace Posada del Peine
Madrid

Hotel is in a great location, within reasonable walking distance of many plazas, Real Palace and many sights. Just a block off of Plaza Mayor which has an abundance of bars and restaurants. Per reports, it is the oldest hotel in Spain. It has some dated features, but comfortable beds and rooms.

Authenticity & Character
Much of the old charm is still visible

Las Casas de la Juderia Hotel
Córdoba

Great old piece of history, used to be a prominent resident's home.

Authenticity & Character
There were old artifacts around the hotel which was interesting. Also, there is an open archeological site accessible on the ground floor which was really interesting
Location

Hotel Macià Granada Five Senses
Granada

This was a clean and modern hotel. Not as close to some of the attractions as I would have liked, but was close to shops and restaurants.

Authenticity & Character
More modern and cold than the historic hotels we stayed in during our trip
Location
Need to expect to take a taxi to get to Alhambra. The walk is quite steep and a bit far. Easy walk to many restaurants.

They were helpful, but seemed busy all the time
Cleanliness & Comfort
Beds were a little low and the room had carpeting which may not be as clean, but you never know.

Very quaint old hotel.

Authenticity & Character

Cleanliness & Comfort
Rooms had a few little quirky things. The bathroom was an old sliding door made from a stained glass door that may have been the old door to the entrance of the room. Our room was directly under the space where the breakfasts are prepared, so noises started early.
Ciutat de Barcelona
Barcelona

This was the worst hotel I have stayed in to my memory. The rooms noted that they were air conditioned and soundproofed. Also, no minibar as was noted in our booking info. However, upon our arrival, we found the rooms were not air conditioned. The front desk told us the air conditioning would not be turned on until the end of the month of April. (However, the front desk area and breakfast area were definitely air conditioned.) Consequently, we had to open the patio windows to be able to withstand the night in the room. With the windows open, the SUPER SUPER loud street noise was unbearable with people screaming at all hours of the night and city trash, recycle and street cleaning occurring every night. Also, the room patio was shared with another room, so the security with the patio doors open was minimal. Additionally, we were traveling with another couple and we were not able to get rooms near each other. We would rate this hotel with a 1 star. Also, you should be prepared to pay a per person, per night city tax at check in which was about 75Euros for 4 people for 4 nights.

Authenticity & Character
Semi-modernized older hotel. From the inside, there wasn't much of the older character left
Location
Quite a distance from Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia, but close to Parc de la Ciutadella. Very Noisy area with lots of activity late at night
Staff
Staff didn't have any way to help us when we didn't want to have a room sharing a balcony with a stranger instead of our traveling companions. Also, no help with the discomfort due to no air conditioning
Cleanliness & Comfort
Room was clean enough, but noise and inability to control the temperature was terrible

Miguel was great. He took us on a side trip to see Sentenil de las Bodegas which was an interesting town built into rock overhangs--sort of cave like. Then, he proceeded on to Ronda. During lunch, a traveling companion suffered a choking incident. He promptly took us to the hospital and assisted with translation as needed. After all was well again, he continued with the remainder of the trip without cutting anything short. That caused him to have a longer day than anticipated.

This trip had a couple of issues. First, there is never enough time to really explore the old towns and feed yourself. The winey tour part of the trip was quite a bust. The bus drove us to the winery usually used and it was closed. We had to spend another hour driving to a different winery where the wine expert did not speak English and the tour guide did not have enough skill to translate the information into English for us. A couple on the tour who spoke Spanish did some translating for the group.

What I most enjoyed from using this service was assistance in setting up transportation via the high-speed trains between cities in Spain. Our guide in Madrid for Royal Palace, Javier was one of the most enjoyable aspects of the trip because he really focused on engaging our children. Our expedition in Valencia led by Sonia was a lot of fun and really got our kids excited to explore around the Mercado Central. The Park Guell and Sagrada Familia led by Beto was incredible due to the extensive knowledge he had and was very accommodating to everyone in the small group. The last expedition in Barcelona for Born/Gothic Quarter was unfortunately the least enjoyable mostly because the guide, Mateo made it clear he did not know there would be children in our private group and said he would have set the experience up differently if he knew ahead of time.

Cordoba based trip planner, Dalia B. Was a terrific resource for my 20 day trip to Spain. The guides she procured were all excellent, the hotels chosen were extremely well located, well fitted out, friendly and within my budget. She was always available if I ran in to a problem right down to spur the moment rental of powered/wheelchair when my 80-year-old legs began to give out two weeks into the tour! It would’ve been impossible for me to arranged and organize this trip without her.

We had a fantastic trip overall, but there were some discrepancies between the itinerary and the trip description we originally agreed to, and that did cause some confusion.

Our itinerary said on our first day we would go to the market, but didn't explain HOW we were to go. There was no map with a "just walk there" or explanation that we were not being driven. (In my previous trips with KimKim, rides were provided to all the sites) Obviously, we found Barcelona is much more walkable, but a map would have been nice. Also, on the Picasso tour, our itinerary specifically said we had a guided tour, with a time. We were never given a guide name, and when we showed up, were told it wasn't guided. This was a let down after the great experience we had with Anna the day before. When we tried to contact Karenena a coworker responded that it was a mistake. We could have arrived at the museum any time, as there was no guide. We did get to do and see everything we wanted to. I will definitely use KimKim again, but double check the itinerary.

Tours and guides were great. Sean in Madrid for the Palace and Prado tours was very informative, enthusiastic and fun to listen to. Juan Carlos for the Toledo tour was enjoyable guiding us in his hometown. Theresa and Jaime in Sevilla and Cordoba both were locals and entertaining and we really enjoyed both tour days. Stepan was great on our tour of Montserrat. He had a unique perspective as a non native of Spain. Ana gave us a nice overview of Gaudi architecture and Sagrada Familia visit. We have nothing but positives for all of the guides. The trains were great. No problems with any delays, etc. I believe the trip was planned really well and we were able to see many different areas of the country and both large and small communities without feeling too stressed or rushed. Alba did a great job planning and adjusting a few things on the itinerary. Her periodic check-ins and reminders were appreciated and was like having our Spanish Madre looking out for us!

The trip was very well planned and we had a great time in Spain! All drivers and local guides are very friendly, helpful and professional.

There are only two minor suggestions for Kimkim team for the future planning:

1. The train station at Madrid was more complex than it said in the provided instruction. And when we returned from Seville, our train arrived at a different part of the station and our driver was waiting at a different part. There is no sign or map to guide us to the part where the driver was waiting for us. The instruction needs to be updated.

2. We were picked up from Granada and the driver would send us to Seville. On our way to Seville, we stopped by Cordoba for a few hours to visit the great Mosque-Cathedral. The timeline was confusing based on the planning. It said we would meet with our guide at 2pm and have a 3 hour guided tour of Mosque- Cathedral, and then we will have a 2 hour free time having a meal and walking around before continuing our trip. But it turned out we arrived at Cordoba around 12:30 pm and had our guided tour as planned. Then we were picked up and continued our trip to Seville immediately. I guess something was wrong in the original plan and it probably meant we arrived earlier and had lunch before the guided tour. If we knew this was the case, we probably would have some meal before the tour at Cordoba and wouldn’t feel starving at the end of the day. But it wasn’t a big deal.
