Spain self drive holiday, Rioja & Pyrenees
Memorable parts? This holiday 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! Tips? Go with an open mind, and enjoy the real Spain. Local benefits? All the hotels we stayed in, apart from the first night, were family run hotels. The spanish people... (more)Janet Herbert

Spanish course & walking holiday, Picos de Europa, Spain
Fantastic - just what I needed! If you want to learn Spanish, go on some great hikes and be truly immersed in Spanish all week (both in school and in the local community) - then book it without hesitation! (more)Hazel Tyror
I had the best time imaginable in Asturias doing Intensive Spanish each day with Ana Rodriguez Garcia and walking in the Picos speaking Spanish each afternoon. Accommodation in the simple hotel was perfect. The town was great and the course superbly well run. It was the best decision ever to take this course. And Ana went far beyond any expectation many times during the week. (more)Marianne Gorman
Had a great time. Everyone was very friendly, the teaching by Ana and Celine was brilliant and perfectly judged for my level of ability. The surrounding mountains are lovely and Jamie took us on some great walks in the afternoons. The food and drink in the local bars and restaurants was excellent. I came home with considerably greater confidence in Spanish. (more)Andrew Robinson

Lanzarote rural self catering accommodation, Canary Islands
Couldn't have asked for more! This hideaway, hidden amongst Lanzaote's awesome landscape, made a perfect home from home for me and my young family. The added benefits were for me a hammock, my 2 boys a 'garden' to explore and my husband enjoyed the alfresco cooking. The owners left Great tips on best beaches and places to explore too. (more)Rachel Grevatte
Wonderful break in a Rural part of Lanzarote. The beaches at Costa De Papagayo are to be recommended for a relaxing in the sun and out of the wind...Excellent holiday. (more)Stuart Mackay
It really was a beautiful holiday. The location was wonderful; the landscape was amazing, nice and quiet, in contact with nature. We liked hiking in the beautiful Lanzarote volcanic areas and along the paths of La Geria wine region. (more)Chiara Zubelli

The most memorable part of the holiday was really being able to immerse ourselves in what felt like real Spain amongst the most charming of people who spoke no English but understood the meaning of hospitality. (more)Penny Whitford
A lovely week, the walking was great, the views fantastic and it was very relaxing. (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
The most memorable part of the holiday was enjoying a well deserved glass of wine after a lovely days walk in the sunshine, whilst admiring an unspoilt view of the mountains around Confrides. (more)Jude Nash
From £220 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided cycling holiday, Spain
Loved the fact that this worked so well for my husband and I - he's a serious recreational cyclist and I'm an avid cyclist but more casual in my approach. We're '50 something's' and found this all very enjoyable. (more)Beth from Canada
What a fantastic holiday! Cycling each day down a new route, through vineyards, small hamlets, to the beach! A holiday quite different to anything we had both been on before. (more)Claire Hermolle
Loved it! There were many memorable moments: views of the Mediterranean from the Cap de Creus Park, hike to San Pere de Rodes, delicious food at every turn, nifty Romanesque churches at seemingly every cross-road….I could go on (more)Amy Shannon
From £426 - £840 excluding flights
Cycling tour in Catalonia for food lovers, Spain
It was great. We could do as much as we wanted. We could have made it as hard or easy as we liked. We loved being active. (more)Liz Wood
Biking in the beautiful country of Spain with my husband and good friends was the most memorable part. It was a wonderful experience, great trails, food and memories to last a lifetime. I am planning my next trip now! (more)Mark Edwards
Everything about this holiday was excellent, and exceeded expectations. We have already recommended this holiday to our friends, and would do it again ourselves! (more)Ashling Swirtz
From €895 - €995 excluding flights
Cycling holiday in Catalonia, Spain
We all had a brilliant time and I can't thank Alan and Vivian enough for the warm welcome we received and the thoughtfulness they demonstrated while we were there. They are super hosts and really did think of everything we might have needed. (more)Jane Edwards
Great. Would definitely now consider another cycling holiday with this company. We enjoyed the experience of cycling through the countryside and to the beach then stopping off for lunch and a beer. We saw so many lovely places. (more)patricia houston
We all enjoyed it immensely...I think seeing the first medieval village and cycling through the deep countryside were the most satisfying experiences. For others it might have been stopping for the first beer at a village cafι. Or the fantastic burger and chips in Ripli when we were all tired and hungry. (more)John Lowdon
From €429 - €799 excluding flights
Photography holiday in Andalucia, Spain
The locations for the photo shoots were excellent - especially Comares and the lake. Good company enjoyed over the varied evening meals. (more)ROB INNIS
Great value for money - informative and friendly tuition, excellent accomodation and hospitality. (more)Louise Goddard
The week was very enjoyable - good photography tips, great locations in Spanish villages and coasts, and with 'staff' that seemed more like old friends than small business operators. And it was excellent value for money. (more)Murray Rudd
From £699 excluding flights
Painting holiday in Andalucia
The painting experience and teaching was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Luisa Brenta
I found it very enjoyable and relaxing; the organisers were efficient and friendly and created a welcoming environment. The mix of people on the course contributed to an interesting week as there were some serious painters and others who just wanted to dabble (more)Patricia Diango
Meeting a wonderful group of people and being tutored by a fantastic artist was the most memorable part of the holiday.... Also loved staying in local houses and becoming part of a traditional village for a week. (more)Lorraine Rutter
From £699 - £799 excluding flights
Photography holiday in Picos de Europa, Spain
Great time. Interesting locations. I got a lot of hands on time with the knowledgeable instructors. I ended up looking at certain things I'd never considered before, and have taken that knowledge home with me as I take photos here. (more)Shane Woods
Very good, I learned a lot. The small group size was perfect for a photography holiday and despite being very full in terms of activities was also very relaxing. Food very large portions and good range of choice. (more)d smith
The mountainous landscape of the Picos de Europa was stunning...lots of photographic help and advice was available for anyone who wished to take it and each participant was treated as an individual at their own level of expertise. (more)Maureen Fidkin
From £1185 excluding flights
Catalan Pyrenees family activity holiday
Memorable parts? Every activity was at least as good as expected if not better. Great group of people, fantastic fun all brilliantly orchestrated by our devoted, excellent guide, Dejan. Tips? Don't have high expectations of the hotel location! We had a wonderful holiday but were initially disappointed by the very central location of the hotel within the resort of Sort, since we imagined a rural, romantic place. Silly fools we are! The pool however is wonderful, clean and a great... (more)Hinds Beatrice
From £840 - £920 including UK flights
Catalonia self guided walking holidays
It was the best holiday we have taken in many years. Cadacaue was the loveliest town I have ever seen and the hotel on the beach with the balcony views was equally exquisite. (more)Karen Balter
...for a short trip, this hol was ideal... excellently planned/supported by the tour operator...A feast for the senses. (more)Maime Pearcey
We were sorry when it ended. Steve is a friendly, down to earth operator who gave excellent advice. The instructions were very easy to follow. This certainly rates as an outstanding holiday experience. (more)Pam Dowling
From £378 - £674 excluding flights
Self guided cycling holiday Catalonia, Spain
Memorable parts? From a bike you see the country in a way you never can from a car - we saw a huge variety of scenery in just a few days. Tips? We would definitely recommend this operator to either keen or beginner cyclists - just tell Alan whether you want to do more or less, and he's happy to plan an itinerary for you. Local benefits? We stayed in some great small hotels in some stunning settings, run by owners who were really committed to making our holiday special. Overall... (more)Bennet Summers
From €895 - €995 excluding flights

The best parts were the location, kindness of hosts, accomodation, amazing stars at night (more)Lisa Hardie
The most memorable aspect was the hotel itself and the great service provided by Ilaria and Des.

(more)Alison Bowyer
From €249 - €339 excluding flights
Birdwatching holiday in Andalucia
I will always remember the beauty of flamingoes, avocets and stilts close up, and seeing a hoopoe for the first time. The great part about this holiday was learning to identify so many birds in different habitats in springtime Andalusia with the expert assistance of our guide Sergio. (more)Elizabeth and Ross Kalucy
The most memorable thing during this holiday was our easy-going, friendly and very competent guide Sergio. He guided us through different landscapes and could always find us interesting spots with lots of birds and he could also tell us interesting things of what else we were seeing around us. (more)Helena Forss

Catalonia family mountain biking & activity holiday, Spain
Memorable parts? The atmosphere. The amazing biking. The friendliness of the Spaniards and our hosts. The excellent food. Tips? Make sure you research all there is to do so that you can take advantage of exactly what you like best. The region, in close proximity to Mas Pelegri, is absolutely full of incredible things to do, especially sporting activities.

From €745 excluding flights
Andalucia villa near Malaga, Spain
You couldn't ask for a more idyllic location, or more welcoming hosts. Shane met us at the villa when we arrived and gave us a quick run through the basics, while Bea would always let us know when she was around to water the plants (twice during the week), a much appreciated sign of the type of consideration they show towards their guests. (more)David Mervik
The peaceful setting, serene surroundings and the warm and gracious hospitality of our hosts, Shane and Bea, are our fondest memories. From the moment we arrived until the minute we left, two weeks later, we rarely thought of our hectic, fast-paced life back home. (more)Nancy Lipson
From €799 - €1199 per accommodation per week
Luxury anti ageing health retreat in Spain
Brilliant! It’s exactly what a lot of women need during stressful times and it’s a fantastic environment to make friends and support other people. There were lots of memorable aspects but the two things that stand out were the varied mixture of activities in the programme, and the cohesion of the group and tutors alike. (more)Jita Shah
The food was absolutely delicious and we were never hungry which was quite a surprise for a detox holiday. The exercise program was just perfect and you could do as much or as you felt able to. The treatments in the SPA were excellent. All around it was a fantastic holiday. (more)Sari Winckworth
From £998 excluding flights
Catalan horse riding holiday in Spain
Memorable parts? Communal meals with so many colourful and friendly people! The wonderful family who ran the hotel who couldn't do enough for you, but didn't crowd you. The beautiful landscape in the middle of nowhere ,only 10mins from the nearest town. Every sporting facility provided, pool, gym, cycling and running and horse riding locally. Even in you're not up to treading the boards, the terrace and poolside are wonderful places to chill out. Tips? Preferably have a car, though... (more)Caroline O
From €870 - €1080 excluding flights
Camino de Santiago self guided walking in Spain
Memorable parts? Walking into the square in front of Santiago cathedral after walking 111kilometres to get there. The emotion of achieving it and the realisation there was no more walking overwhelmed me. The square was filled with other pilgrims each one full of the same joys. Tips? It is all about the feet and you cannot have too many Compeed blister packs! A good pair of rugged footware and the best hiking socks will repay the investment. Be in the moment, if you think how far... (more)Tony Finn
From £445 - £850 excluding flights

The yoga, meditation... (more)Claire Scanlan
From €599 - €1099 excluding flights
Learn Spanish for travellers, Northern Spain
Memorable parts? A chance to learn more Spanish in a thoroughly enjoyable, varied and relaxed fashion - on subjects which have real relevance and usage in everyday Spanish life. Made an intensive course fun by changing the learning medium (eg written, discussions, videos , games) regularly and paced it to individual requirements. The best language course I have ever taken. Huge amounts of effort and thought are applied and in no way is it formulaic. It was great on the last evening to... (more)Veronica Thompson
From €720 excluding flights
Gran Canaria walking holiday
Memorable parts? We really enjoyed the walks and being away from any crowds. Brilliant scenery. Tips? Go for the better class accommodation. Three of the hotels we stayed in were only just alright but the other three were very good. Local benefits? The economy is certainly supported by tourism. Overall rating? We had a wonderful time. (more)Catherine Lane
From £709 - £779 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Andalucia, Spain
The most memorable part is very hard to choose: the kind welcome, the beautiful countryside and riot of almond blossom, the delicious food, the charming and relaxed interior decor, all the laughs we had...Great! I loved the place... (more)Susanne Warren
