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.

    Plus: The Tour Director was excellent, well-organized, patient, understanding, and always willing to compromise to accommodate members of the group. I would give her a 10+. Overall: The tour was excellent Itinerary: I would have preferred perhaps one additional day in Portugal (driving north and, after fatima - perhaps Oporto?). Transportation: We had an air conditioning problem which was taken care of in the shortest possible delay. Accommodation: One hotel had smaller rooms - location?, but the rest of them were excellent. Meals: Farewell supper had steak included, unfortunately, it was not cooked as requested and the quality was poor - some guests mentioned that the alternative (Salmon) was very good.

    Our guide Miguel and Paolo our driver were fantastic.We at all times felt safe in the coach The included meals were very good . There is a huge amount of driving but I cannot see how this would be avoided with the distances required to travel . The optional tours are a must . Sintra was our favourite . The local guides were knowledgeable and passionate about their tours

    Saw a lot in 13 days. Good balance of free and guided time. Pace was good. Madrid hotel could have been closer. Lisbon and Madrid city tours lacked depth but there was enough free time to make up for it. Great overall though!

    Daisy was the most wonderful TD! We also had a fabulous bus driver Jouis ! Every day she had a huge smile on her face and made us laugh! She was extremely attentive to everyone’s questions and needs! I truly enjoyed traveling with her as my tour guide and I would definitely choose her again if I had the opportunity! The trip was filled with so many wonderful experiences throughout Spain and Portugal! I especially enjoyed all of the “hidden treasures” and the Be My Guest experience on the ranch! Even though I was a solo traveler I felt like part of a huge family! I definitely look forward to traveling with Trafalgar again next summer!

    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.
