Best of Spain, May 2014
I enjoyed the trip very much. The group was friendly and balanced. The evenings were varied and some of us would have probably preferred fewer Tapas bars and more restaurants but went along with the majority.Overall a packed itinerary - an extra day at the beginning in Madrid and at the end in Barcelona woukd improve it. And only one night in Madrid and Cordoba was probably insufficient and we really only had one full day to see Valencia which deserved longer. It was good to have the opportunity to go to Tangier, but I think I'd rather delete Tarifa and have that time in Spain. I also personally added a trip to Toledo from Madrid in my own extra time which I thought was very worthwhile. Viv was very good. She ensured the different age groups within the group all mixed in. Her leadership was particularly tested by one member of the group who proved difficult to please, especially when we were eating out. She defused the situations and went out of her way to try to settle the group member and the restaurant owners who could have easily taken offence. In each city she prepared marked up maps and recommendations for each of us which was very helpful.
