Thank you for great tour of Spain. We had the BEST tour director!!!!

This was a great trip and would provide a good 'taste of' the entire country of Spain. That said, because it covered so many miles it means you're on the bus more than I'd given thought to. Older people or folks with physical challenges might want to consider the 'leisurely' style trips instead of this one.

The Best of Spain trip did not disappoint! Our guide, Lydia, wellness director, Joel, & our driver, Paolo, did a wonderful job, over & above our expectations! The trip is very busy & quite exhausting, but so worth it! Not quite enough time to look around in some places, but we had to keep moving!

Our Trafalgar " Best of Spain" Tour was wonderful. Spain has more UN designated world heritage sites than any other country. Also, only Switzerland has more mountains than any other country in Europe. Very modern, very clean, yet so much history. Our tour guide that accompanied us made the trip fun and took care of all the details. We still had some time to explore our own ANF had optional excursions as well. "Viva Espana"

I really liked the NH Hotel. I would recommend changing the authentic hotel. It was run down and confusing to get around. Some of the hotels could have been in better locations to points of interest. The travel director was wonderful. She was passionate and very knowledgeable. You need to find a better way for people to use the badges. They wouldn't stay on so people gave up using them. Also it would be helpful to have the country listed as well as the first name.

I should have been told that a roommate would be put with me and not find out when I got there.

There were a few items that are described that are not consistent with what you get. For example "view the Guggenheim Museum" in Bilbao apparently meant only viewing the toilets and the parking lot. For actual entrance into the museum we were supposed to buy our own tickets. Same thing happened in Barcelona at the Sagrada Familia where we were supposed to see the "architecture" but only saw the outside of the building. Unfortunately, we could not even pay and buy our tickets because they were sold out. So either the description needs to be changed or the Tour Guide did not do the right thing. FIRST TIME IN FOUR TRAFALGAR TOURS THIS HAS HAPPENED.
