We had so much fun visiting Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid. The guides on the walking tours were excellent and very knowledgeable. We especially liked Josep who took us through the old quarter of Valencia. He made it not only interesting but held our attention. The private cooking class in Valencia was wonderful also. We had an enjoyable evening making authentic paella, a Spanish omelet and a delicious sponge cake. In Madrid, my favorite thing to do was to see the flamenco show. It was performed with such passion.
Really the whole trip was great and we really appreciated both James and Rocio for all their assistance in making our trip a reality.

Private Walking Tour of Madrid & the Prado Museum
Madrid

The tour and the guide were very good. Unfortunately by this time in the trip, I think we were all exhausted and the heat had gotten to us. Any other time it would have been very enjoyable.
