Anne Picard review 7 Jul 2019
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Our time spent in the Sierra de Aracena and Sierra Subbética were a pleasant surprise. As less visited areas of Spain, they are beautiful and relaxing.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
It can be tailored to your needs. We had time restrictions as to number of days travelling and needed the tour to begin in Madrid. The tour was customized
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
We definitely used local guides, ate at local restaurants, bought from local merchants. Some of the hotels were "green" rated.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
It was with a pleasant series of emails that we planned our trip with David; once we had outlined our tastes and limitations or restrictions, everything fell into
place. Even given that we were on the short end of the time required to book such a trip, everything was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Spain. There was a pleasant balance between city touring and country exploration, expert guides, comfortable lodging and great food. I have been singing their
praises. We hope to be able to travel with this agency again as it truly was the type of holiday we appreciate.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your trip with us on the Responsible Travel site. It's wonderful to hear you had such a good time, and
thank you for letting your friends know about us, that's a wonderful compliment!
I'm particularly pleased that you liked Aracena and the Sierra Subbética so much, these are exactly the type of more hidden corners of Spain that we love to
share with our clients. Our key goal with all our trips is to get you closer to the county and its people, it sounds like we were pretty successful on this front,
which is very pleasing.
Of course we'd love to have you travel with us again, so please do get in touch when you're thinking of heading back to Spain (or Portugal). We have lots of
ideas that I think you'll love and, as you say, are always happy to tailor these to each client.
All the best,
