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

We enjoyed many elements of the holiday. The city highlight was probably the Guggenheim area in Bilbao (the contents not especially exciting). The countryside highlight was ascending Fuente De by cable car and walking down afterwards - 8 griffon vultures circling overhead just added to the day. Roads were very quiet, although narrow and winding in places, so one or two longish journeys weren't a burden. We called in on Burgos Cathedral which I'd never heard of - absolutely stunning!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The tour operator are a friendly company and can respond to changes in the standard tour if requested. Santander is an easy airport to use, we flew with Ryanair. The hotels chosen were all in good locations with clean rooms and friendly staff. Take a travel kettle if you want hot drinks in your room.

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

Not in any special way.

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

Enjoyable & relaxing. We had good weather which, as always, is a great help.

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

The scenic drive from one town to the next and the fabulous churches

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring umbrella or rain protection.

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

Yes! There are so many things to discover and the only way to see them is via driving....so if more people will opt to do a self-drive tour...more tourist will go to the area.

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

It was great and will recommend to my family and friends.
