Spanish course & walking holiday, Picos de Europa, Spain
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
Excellent. The language school, walks, village and environment were better than I had dared to hope they would be. I hope I have a chance to return for a longer stay. (more)Cecilia Johnson
Loved it! I was made to feel right at home from the minute I met the crew; I made new friends, improved my Spanish and got to walk off the local cheese and cider in the spectacular Picos de Europa. I really didn't want to leave! (more)Carina Kane
From €325 excluding flights
Learn Spanish & walk the Camino de Santiago, Spain
Memorable parts? The hiking was gorgeous Tips? Get to Panes early enough to walk around the town and have a lay of the land before starting the week. Local benefits? Yes. The local economy is able to support this kind of tourism. Overall rating? We greatly enjoyed this unique adventure in learning the language and experiencing a culture and having an action-oriented vacation. And we are in our 60's. (more)Margaret Johnson

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 £799 excluding flights
Photography holiday in Andalucia, Spain
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
Meeting the host, wonderful people who looked after our every need...Excellent. (more)John Bell
From £699 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 - £1335 excluding flights
Learn Spanish in Granada, Spain
Stepping out on the terrace and facing the magnificence of the Al Hambra Palaces in the sunshine. It’s one of those wonderful places you spend your whole life gazing at in pictures, but when you see it for yourself it is far more than any picture can portray. (more)Negla Salem
Excellent, the school and it's staff were well organised, encouraging and excellent value for money. The accommodation offered at the school site was basic but enjoyable for the company. (more)Maureen Perkins
It is so good, I am still here - have arranged to stay an extra week! (more)June King
From €160 excluding flights
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 - £1148 excluding flights
Birdwatching holiday in Andalucia
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? Grab it! You shall no regret! Local benefits? I feel that we benefited local people by using their services. Overall rating? Very good! (more)Helena Forss
From €550 excluding flights
Catalonia self guided walking holiday
Memorable parts? Most memorable - the variety of experiences: interesting coastal & mountain hiking, various culinary experiences (olive oil & wine tastings at vineyards, rural kitchen tasting & 33 course tasting at 2 star Michelin restaurant, daily picnics with local produce). Tips? The operator does a great job of helping you individualize your trip - through Tracy in the office & Callum who does the much of the guiding and "legwork" for the various routes. They are innovative... (more)Ruth Huneke
From £890 excluding flights
Moorish Spain to Marrakech by rail
Excellent value - excellent itinerary..The entire trip was exciting and memorable, but if i had to pick just a couple of items: Train trips, Fez walking tour and Marrakech main square at night. (more)Peta Rofe
Trekking in High Atlas mountains; ferry across from Algeciras to Tangiers; the Medina in Fez; Semana Santa in Malaga were the most memorable parts. (more)Miriam O'Keeffe
Most memorable was seeing the different places and cultures. The optional trips to volubilis and high Atlas Mountains were very good. (more)Raymond Alderton
From £996 - £1145 including UK flights
Yoga holidays in Spain
Great! just wish it had been longer than 6 days, 10 days would have been perfect. (more)Jai Lescieur
Great yoga in a lovely light and quiet studio within the hotel courtyard. Interesting hotel that wasn't far away from the beach, marina, tapas bars and lovely restaurants...I would definitely go again. Already looking at Nicole and Gary's Altea holiday. (more)Jo Channing
I really did so enjoy my morning yoga sessions and learnt a lot to help me on my yoga journey. The yoga terrace was perfect...I do not have any suggestions as to how it could be better. The level of yoga was just right...not too easy or too difficult. I would certainly come again. (more)Wendy Hilary Evans Lothe
From £665 excluding flights
Learn Spanish in Granada, Andalucia
Memorable parts? The school is very well run. The staff and teachers are extremely professional and experienced. The two teachers I had were excellent, which I think make all the difference, and contributed to a wonderful experience. The school also organised a trip to see a stage performance of "Poet in New York" which was amazing. It was set in the Alhambra gardens which are beautiful and had a great atmosphere! Tips? Try and maximise your time in the school. The teachers recommend... (more)Craig Gibbons
From €225 excluding flights
Asturias country hotel, Spain
The beautiful Asturian house seemed part of the stunning surrounding countryside. From the hotel you could see both high peaks and gentle pasture land. It was a very peaceful stay - at night, the sound of the cow bells lulled you to sleep... (more)Helen Ryan-Atkin
It was so much more amazing than I'd ever expected. To start with the hotel, it's set in a breathtaking area of Asturias with dramatic mountains and serene meadows...It was amazing and exceeded my expectations. I would visit again in a heartbeat. (more)Rebecca Kraemer
It was truly excellent!... (more)John Holmwood
From €62 - €75 per double room per night
