    The tour was great! Hugo, our travel guide, and Miguel, the bus operator, were wonderful to travel with. Unfortunately our very first hotel wasn't booked correctly, but other than that little hiccup, we really enjoyed it. Thanks for everything!

    The local tour guides for the cities were amazing! As for the tour guide wh accompanied us on the bus. She was okay but a little disappointed we didn't get more narrative along the way on the bus trip to the different cities. Seemed to be a lot of road time and not enough time in the cities. Toledo is a quant, most beautiful city yet we were not there three hours maximum. On the way to Toledo, our guide dropped us off for lunch which was half an hour and there were no restaurants open, only a bakery, and a couple of other shops where you were left to fend incur own. Not sure where she went for the half hue, but it was disappointing . . felt we were on up own. Don't bother taking the seven day trip. You'd be best to do the 4 day trip and see Madrid on our own. Thei plus was the pick up and departure ride to the airport as it is about a 25 minute drive. The driver was great and prompt. The santo Domingo for being an upgrade was a little disappointing. In North America, it would be a three star tops. The room we got in Madrid at that hotel at the start of our trip was a decent size with a amazing view of a garden wall. On our last leg of the trip our final night in Madrid at the same hotel, we had a tiny room with terrible cot type beds. I asked for a different room and was shown one even smaller!!! For 40 euros though I was told I could upgrade. No thanks. We did two tours which were "optional" which was a flamenco dance performance for 37 euros or thereabouts each. Also in Granada for another 38 or so euros was another " optional" excursion of old part of granada. I feel these code been included with the cost of the trip. Overpriced for too much time on the bus.

    Tour guides were excellent. Hotels were excellent. Food could be better. Also, it really was a four day tour. The other three days in Madrid were really on your own except fot a three hour sightseeing tour. So one could save money by just doing a four day. More time needed at Cordoba.

    Everything was good except lack of communication between local T/A and customer. On Dec 30 P.M. Panoramic tour of Madrid - time and location not advised.
    On Jan 1 A.M. City tour of Seville. As we did not take the optional PM tour, we were left alone and either wait 4 hours or return hotel on our own.
