    The trip was excellent and exceeded our expectation. Cindy, our guide, is the best ever. She is so knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable and happy. It's really look like a family. There was no boring moment during our trip. It was really splendid. Our driver, Santana, made us feel safe and comfortable during the entire trip. He was amazing and very friendly, approachable and helpful.

    I enjoyed the trip, but it would have been nicer if the hotels were more centrally located. The breakfasts were great. I loved Seville and Granada. I would have preferred to walk a lot more in Valencia, rather than quickly drive by buildings we couldn't really see by coach. I was surprised the walking tour of Madrid was something you had to pay extra for. I was glad the trip to Montserrat was included. The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was really special!

    Tour was great. Guide and all local guides very knowledgeable. I learned much more being on the tour than I would have had I traveled on my own. The bus coach was very comfortable I don'y sleep on planes but I found i could get cat naps quite easily. Our driver was very professional . I felt quite safe with him at the wheel. We packed a lot in in a day but the pace was not overwhelming. I highly recommend Trafalgar and plan to take another trip with them.

    Guide and transportation were excellent Hotels could been better and closer to city central( Madrid and Barcelona far from city centre inconvenience) Entry to familia sigrada and elhambra should have been organised by the tour as we were not aware you have to book one month in advance(al hambra palace....big disappointment !!!!!!!

    Overall-this was a great trip! My only critique is the time/distance worked into these 9 days. Because we covered so much territory, I felt we spent too much time on the coach. I would have enjoyed more time in a smaller area. Our guide was great, our driver was great, but we just went too far in a short time, so we end up back home wishing we had been a bit teased by some of the areas, wanting more.

    I have just completed a Cost-Saver Trafalgar tour called the Spanish Experience with Travel Director, Chloe Mulcahy and Trip Driver, Martinho who worked together as a well oiled team. I had hoped for an enjoyable, affordable, interesting and informative 9 day holiday. From the vital information received from Chloe prior to this trip (I wish I had read it more thoroughly to better assist with my preparations), through to its conclusion we received nothing but outstanding service and consideration beyond my imagination. This fascinating journey far exceeded my expectations and those of many of my fellow travellers. We were treated to the varied and intriguing landscapes of Spain - both rural and city, kept informed and excited by its history, feasted (rather too well) on its delicious and traditional foods, nurtured by the most comfortable accommodation, rather too tempted by the fascinating shopping opportunities and shared and formed great friendships with people from many nations throughout the world. Thankyou Trafalgar and your excellent staff for delivering on your promises for a trip of a lifetime that I will thoroughly enjoy reflecting back upon and not hesitate to recommend to others. M. L'Estrange #Costsaver
