The trip was well planned and the tours were informative and worthwhile. The only reason I gave this a 4* rating is the lunch was not very good. Nacho was an excellent guide and our bus driver Sous did a good job driving so many miles. We learned a lot about Spanish history.

The tour was wonderful. The buses were comfortable and our guide Irene did an amazing tour, in English and Spanish. Always attentive, she showed great knowledge and pleasure in showing us the city and some of the main monuments, which certainly made our day in Toledo unforgettable. The wine tasting was also great! A must-see tour is not tiring.
This was fantastic... didn’t feel rushed. We had an hour or so rest between cities as we travelled. Our guide Paola was bee knowledgeable and lovely. Our driver Enrique was professional, drove safely and didn’t spend any time on his phone or texting. The glass of Cava on return to toast the day was a lovely end.
