The trip was fantastic. We enjoyed the beauty of Spain and Portugal and learned so much about the historical significance this area was due to our expert guide, Pascal. He watched out for us as we were his own parents.

Not sure with cost saver. Too much time sitting in the bus and not enough sightseeing many sights only during drives

Did not like it that the hotels were way out of town, making it very difficult to immerse yourself in the city and find places to eat. Would have much preferred places near the center of the city. Several of the dinners furnished by the hotel were not very good. And they did not reflect the culture of Spain. (Chicken and french fries with yogurt for dessert for the final dinner (Really????) The paella we had at one hotel was very good. I thought with all the extras we had to pay for as well and paying for transfers if we wanted to go out at night, that we would have been better served by the regular tour. Had no idea what "Cost Saver" meant, and would have liked to have had some guidance about that.

Great tour . Our tour director Maite was excellent , attentive, , knowledgable and very pleasent as well as our bus driver Sergio. I will highly recommend this tour. I will give the tour a A 5 starts rating

The trip provided an opportunity to see many sights in Spain and Portugal. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is looking into seeing these two countries.

Our tour director was wonderful. Some of the breakfasts were not so good. 1 hotel had no hot water for morning shower.

The tour guide was the best tour guide we have ever had on a land tour!

In two of the hotels, the room AC didn't work and the in-room refrigerators didn't work. In the last hotel, the location was quite a ways from the metro. The others were conveniently close.
