By Donna M on Apr 30, 2016

Globus does a fine job of providing the best hotels in the most convenient locations. The Tour Director was exceptional and tried to accommodate all of our needs (31 people). He worked closely with the local guides who were good also. He had a good memory and was an expert on Spanish history, language, culture. Globus excels in getting the tourists in the door of sites early, before the crowds appear. They are also adept at changing the schedule when needed to make sure that we see major sites as described in our booklet. This was the case for the Prado Museum and they incorporated a short high speed train ride to make sure we didn't miss a thing. We highly recommend Globus - they have the expertise to make your travels memorable!

By Sarah M on Apr 02, 2016

Our trip to Spain was wonderful. We enjoyed excellent hotels, fine food and unforgettable sites.

By Bonnie W on Oct 17, 2015

Hotel Agumar in Madrid was below my expectations... Otherwise the accommodations were excellent...

By Roland J on Oct 14, 2015

This tour is at times leisurely and other times a little hectic. The balance is about right if you are less than 80 years old. Spending two nights at some hotels was much appreciated by us. More would be better. We felt that less time on the bus each day would be better even if the trip needed to be expanded one or two days Our overall impression was very favorable to Globus. Really good guides and superb drivers.

By Mark G on Oct 10, 2015

Spain is a beautiful country with very clean cities. Globus did a nice job. I will look for better flights next year. They should also include an in-depth tour of each city rather than having to pay additional in some locations. They need to include the Church of La Familia in the tour in Barcelona.

By Arlene C on Sep 26, 2015

The Highlights of Spain tour was great. The hotels were all centrally located. The hotel in Madrid and the paella dinner in Valencia were a bit disappointing . The other hotels and meals were very good. The farewell dinner was exceptionally enjoyabable. The itinerary was excellent. And there was a good mix of tour time and free time.

By Ekram E on Sep 19, 2015

Everything exceeded my expectation but one comment about the first hotel in Madrid: The room was very nice and staff courteous but the A/C was not working and the first dinner despite that it was good, it took way too long and one server was serving 39 people.

By Elizabeth S on May 16, 2015

The guides and tours on the trip were totally unsatisfactory. I travel to learn. The audio devices caused the guides tours to be useless. I could hear nothing. The size of the tour was bigger than previous tours I have taken. I will only use smaller tour groups in the future.

By Kenneth M on May 09, 2015

Globus continues to provide a very nice packaged tour. Hotels were good and centrally located, meals provided were in great restaurants with good menus & drinks. Excursions were worth the price, had some problems with transceivers, which almost ruined the Prado Museum tour. Tour guide and drivers were excellent.

By James M on Apr 24, 2015

Our trip to Spain was with Globus Tours. Of the 36 people on our coach, the overwhelming percent were Globus return customers. We will now find ourselves as frequent Globus customers. The tour guide, the driver and the brand new Mercedes coach led to a unforgettable trip that featured first class hotels, tours, and great food. Globus and Spain are well kept secrets. We'll be sure to spread the word!

By Manoher R on Nov 22, 2014

This is our third trip thru Affordable and Globus. We are very happy with the services provided by our consultant at Affordable and have no problem recommending Affordable to our friends

By Kurian T on Aug 30, 2014

It is the second time I have been part of a large escorted group tour. It was organized exceptionally well with enough time for important areas and sufficient free time to explore on ones own. Overall, a great experience and we had a wonderful group.

By Eileen S on Jun 21, 2014

Another great trip! Would definitely recommend affordable tours/Globus to anyone traveling!

By Kenneth S on Jul 13, 2013

Globus was beyond my expectations and I would book another trip in a heartbeat with them.

By Kathleen F on May 25, 2013

Only complaint was that sometimes the touring of several places only involved driving by them. If you sat on the side of the bus closest to the monument or whatever, that was great (provided the bus slowed down enough to snap a picture). Would have preferred the opportunity to get off for photo. Otherwise, the tour guide was fantastic and we saw a lot!

By Ethelreda G on Sep 29, 2012

I had been in a tour 3 times and our Tour director was the best. Very professional and knowledgeable

By Americo E on Aug 04, 2012

We just came back from Spain. It was really great. Globus was awesome. We only have a little issue with the breakfast in the Aguamar hotel in Madrid. I guees they were not ready for us, but next day it was better. Overall great trip, my family and I aare very happy and we wil book again with your company and preferable with Globus.
