Tour guide was very disorganized and not helpful with free time activities and finding restaurants making it a very frustrating trip. Hotels were very far from things This entire trip was very unlike previous Globus tours,making me consider a different company.

By Carrie W on May 25, 2019

Be prepared for much time on the bus between cities

By Blanca C on Apr 13, 2019

The only thing that bother us was two hotels where the air conditioner didn't work properly, the room was hot, hard to sleep. The rest was very good.

By Katherine S on Sep 15, 2018

The only thing we did not expect is the long bus ride from Barcelona and Madrid. The optional excursion in Madrid which is the dinner and city lights was such a disappointment. The food was not great.

By Edgar H on Oct 07, 2017

Great overview of Spain and to a lesser degree Portugal. Nice accommodations, great service.

By Jeanette L on May 28, 2016

Regarding accommodations: Courtyard by Marriott in Madrid was the worst, it's far by Marriotts standard in the US. Best Hotel is the Marques de Pombal in Lisbon- service & location, the rest are good.

By Lisa F on May 14, 2016

The hotel in Barcelona was in the Business District, and wasn't walking distance to some of the best sights, but it was a nice hotel. The included meal at the hotel had soup that was so SALTY that it bordered on inedible. Many of us at the table used our glass of water to try to dilute it to no avail. The hotel in Madrid was my least favorite-a little rundown-I had a running toilet, the carpet was crushed and looked dirty, but its location was great-walking distance to the riverfront restaurants and shops. The hotel in Lisbon was quite nice as well.

By Nelson S on Sep 24, 2010

The Globus tour we took was well run. The staff was very informative and friendly.
