Overall, we enjoyed aspects of the tour but there were
several negatives. Several tour groups were combined, so the
itinerary was confusing. We were instructed to meet at the
travel agency. When we arrived they were not familiar with
our tour plans. After several phone calls they instructed us
to catch a taxi at our expense to a hotel, to meet the rest
of the group. We almost missed the bus.
Once on the bus I thought we were on the wrong tour because
our guide kept talking about Barcelona, and other places not
on our itinerary. It turned out that we were the only ones
on the two day tour to Cordoba and Seville. Next our tour
guide proceeded to sell tour packages to us. I mistakenly
thought that the tours were included in the package. Our
guide explained that only the panoramic tour, the view from
the bus was included. You had to pay extra for guided tours
to the various sights. At 36 euros per person this was no
small price for a family of four.
The guided tours were good, but expensive. The hotel 3 star
was poor quality with a gaping hole in the wall next to our
room and yellow stains on the pillows. The food was mediocre
and drinks i.e. water cost extra. If I had to do it again, I
would travel by AVE train, really awesome both ways and see
the cities on my own.
