Reviews for Activity vacation in Andalucia, Spain


review 8 May 2008

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

Visiting the Alhambra Palace in Granada was amazing - it was a hot sunny day with many visitors but we still managed to explore the Palace and discover its peacefulness and innate beauty. We also loved exploring the Sierra Nevada mountains on foot. A stunning, awesome landscape - it literally took our breath away as we reached the snow capped summits. Wonderful delicious food and wine - added an extra dimension to the vacation - cooked and presented with love by the chef. Fantastic. Also, the hosts local knowledge. They were fascinating to talk to and happy to share their knowledge. We would have had a lesser vacation without them.

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

Book a visit to the Alhambra Palace a few weeks in advance and try to get an afternoon slot - we had morning - so that you can visit the rest of the Palace in the morning once you have collected your tickets. Work out what you need to see before you go in, and get to see Genarlife, Alcazar and Nasrid Palaces in your booked afternoon slot. Also take food in as you cant buy substantial food and drink once inside. Plan travel well before you go. Our vacation involved a lot of car trips.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Didn't minimise impacts - we did a lot of traveling by car, but local people employed who were wonderful and added something special to the experience. I did offset our flights too.

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

Excellent value (apart from travel) - travel to and from airport costly if by car which was only possibility on return journey.
