    4.5 - Excellent

    The tour covered a lot of places but could have made time to really do the highlights well, like an inside tour of Alhambra and a full day in Porto.

    Filip made the tour fabulous. He is knowledgeable, passionate about his subject and likeable in the extreme. Allambrah should really be included - we had to go all the way back to Granada to visit it.

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Disappointed. Horrible hotels with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions. Horrible food except for breakfasts. Energetic guide. Would have preferred guide with more knowledge of places. Overall would never do another tour with this company.

    Tour guide John on Tour was very good but hotels were only 2 stars and some 3 stars! Food selection was underwhelming and the trip was very tourist designed. You do see a lot of places & quickly so a great overview of cities.
