Reviews for Spain self drive vacation, Rioja & Pyrenees


review 7 Jul 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

This vacation was so packed full of fantastic memories.........From the moment we arrived in Bilbao with the awesome Guggenheim Museum and delicious tapas, through to the final day when we walked down to the beach in Barcelona to paddle in the Mediterranean Sea like a couple of teenagers!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go with an open mind, and enjoy the real Spain.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All the hotels we stayed in, apart from the first night, were family run hotels. The spanish people are very proud of their cuisine, and much of the food we ate had been produced very locally. Although we had a hire car, we spent most of our days walking rather than driving.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

This was truly a superb vacation, with so much to offer to everyone. We were able to explore nature at its very best, along food and wine, art and culture, and also to learn a little about the spanish people themselves. Well done the operator - we'll certainly be back!

Dear Janet, Many thanks for taking the time to post your review, we are absolutely delighted to hear you had such a great time in Rioja and the Pyrenees. Your comments sum up pretty much exactly what we hope to achieve with this trip, and indeed every vacation we make, so that's lovely to hear, thank you. It's our firm belief that it's the combination of the great outdoors, the cuisine, the arts and the people which make Spain so enriching. From the Picos de Europa, to the Camino de Santiago, to Andalucia, all of our vacations are designed to immerse our clients in the real Spain and its secrets, so we're very happy you got to experience this. As you know, we have plenty more trips to entice you, so I hope we can help you get under the skin of Spain again very soon! All the best, David
