    Although the itinerary was good, the tour guide left people behind twice. Sometimes he was nice and at times spoke disrespectfully and argued with guests. I was shocked when he blamed two of us for getting left behind when we were helping an elderly woman who didn’t walk well. This wasn’t our job. I also don’t want to hear about your problems with other guests. We were told not to make an email list because he would email all of us. A couple of weeks later (after I texted him) I received an email saying that the company had a new policy not to share guests emails, even though he had written permission to do so. Now I have no way to send pictures of others to them. Ridiculous since we had already started to make our own email list but stopped when he told us he would send them to all of us.

    We just returned from Lisbon / Northern Spain with Globus. In general we had a very positive trip, particularly with Lisbon, San Sebastian and Barcelona. The pace was quicker then my previous tours (four two nights and three one nights); on the plus side you do get to see a lot, but overall we concluded that a slightly slower pace is better as sometimes you just need a little bit of extra time to get a feel for a location. Most of the stops on the drive were fine (we did hit bad weather up north, so honestly that impacts your impression) and the optional excursions were generally very good - particularly France in the Basque region and Montserrat. The included meals were also pretty good - better than previous tours we have been on, including Globus. Hotels were uneven - some very good, most pretty good, one or two poor (Tryp Apollo in Barcelona). Most hotels did have very good breakfasts. That being said, what really made the trip memorable was the group we were with - and our amazing tout director Luis. He was by far the best tour director we have ever experienced; he was knowledgable, funny, informative, and on top of everything. There was not one glitch the entire tour; even when a participant became ill and needed medical attention, he handled everything seamlessly. He was always around, easy to find, and amazingly patient and graceful with questions I am sure he has heard a million times. Our driver was also excellent, handling some really tiny turns / streets with more agility than I could with my compact car, lol. He was also a gentleman through out. Overall I do recommend this tour, just be prepared for the pace - and keep fingers crossed that your welcome poster has the name Luis as tour director !!
