Communication and Personalization made us feel well taken care of.
Nov 12 - Nov 23, 2023
We've been traveling for years and can say that the communication on this trip from Alfonso was like nothing we've ever experienced. Usually, once the trip starts you feel like you're on your own and you have a random customer service number to contact if you need any help while you're out of your own country. Alfonso was just as available and helpful during the planning as he was while we were on our trip. His constant text messages that reminded us of our schedule for the upcoming day, provided us detailed directions on where to meet our drivers, who were always right there and on time, and his ability to make us feel at home while traveling was unprecedented. We had wonderful local guides who were able to share wonderful information and show us amazing sites while not overwhelming us with dates and historical information that can often be way too much data. They were all just the right amount of info as we had requested. I feel like we were able to see everything we wanted to and at the same time did not feel like we were too overbooked and had enough time to explore on our own. Thank you Alfonso, and our guides Gloria (Malaga), Manu (Seville)Juan (Madrid) and George (Barcelona), we feel like you're all our friends now! Thank you for showing us Spain and sharing your time with us.
Gloria was super fun and so informative without being boring. She took us through the Alcazaba with a passion for the info that kept us all interested. She then walked us through Malaga, leaving us to eat one of our favorite meals.
We visited a couple of Tapas places and walked around Seville and saw what felt like all of Seville in one walk which is awesome. We had thought this was more of a food tour by the title of it but it was more like a tour that ended with Tapas, which was still great, but was different than what we had expected.
Super cool experience! The massages were really good and the facilities were wonderful. We could have booked a longer massage or had more time here to relax, 90 minutes didn't seem enough to enjoy.
This was a nice relaxing ride on the river. It was really only about 75 minutes, not 2 hours and the scenery wasn't that awesome compared to all the other sites we had seen.
After traveling for 3 weeks we were tired and Alfonso and our guide Juan were able to accommodate us and make this walk through Madrid just perfect. We were able to see the sites and get super interesting info about them and also get valuable info on what to see, avoid, or do on our own. We went places that we likely wouldn't have walked on our own.
I'm so glad we went to Toledo. We thought it might be a long day and while it was, it was super cool to see.The history, the art, the old medieval town were all amazing. We visited great museums, cathedrals, we ate and we even shopped and enjoyed the short train ride to and from Toledo. Might have been one of our favorite days.
Had a wonderful night tromping around Barcelona and seeing some of the highlights of the Gothic Quarter. Stopped for Tapas and had so much food! :) The title of the tour made us think it was kind of a Tapas tour instead of being a Tour that Also had Tapas. So that's the only reason for 4 stars because we had different expectations. But was a great night!
