    Lunch stop we're below average and so was our guide and the excursion were well over priced and not that good. Our first Trafalgar trip and more than likely our last. There better value trips out there

    My first experience of Spain so everything was a new experience. Tania was very knowledgeable and helpful and explained everything to us from meal times to pickup times. The included tours catered for most and the optional ones offered enough variety to decide what you wished to do. Some of the local guides spoke a bit too long when more free time would have been appreciated. I understand it is hard to pick things to appeal to all guests but more free time in places, or some place, would have been appreciated by the majority on my tour.

    The thing we liked most was being given historical information and visiting cities we wouldn't have otherwise thought to go to. For example Toledo and Salamanca as well as all of Morocco, it was great to have local guides. Kassie was fabulous along with both bus drivers. Kassie had such patience with people being late and others who did not understand basic instructions. Our hats off to her, job well done.

    My husband and I enjoyed the Iberian Exploration tour tremendously. We loved the sights, the food, the optional tours and the hidden treasures. Kassie took good care of every detail from day one till our departure after the tour. She’s very organized, has excellent communication skills, and has an in-depth knowledge about the various places that we have visited. There was no dull moment in the bus because she gave us varied activities like introductory information about the place, different games, video presentations, appropriate music, and a movie. Her act of kindness and thoughtfulness was exemplary. She bought us the Belem pastries, saucers from Granada, and the cork rooster postcard from Lisbon. She was very accommodating , gracious, and warm-hearted. She was a great help in creating our beautiful memories. João was a skillful driver. He drove with ease and competence. He made sure we were safe until we reached our destination. All the local experts were very knowledgeable in giving comprehensive information.
