Loved this tour with Julia Tours. By booking through Viator, we had an awesome discount compared to some of our travel mates that we met there. Our tour guide was amazing and each individual city came with a local guide to give us more of insight and knowledge into the history of the area.

What a beautiful country Spain is...

What a beautiful country Spain is! This tours really shows you what Spain has to offer. Every city we went to was magnificent and different in their own unique way and to our surprise The tour arrangement was great from the beginning, we got all the information needed from Viator and Julia Travel since this is the company that took care of us while in Span. We had an agent at our hotel in Madrid the day we arrived to make sure we received the right info. Our tour guide for the first 4 days was Gracia and she was great! She was always ready to go and share great insights from Madrid, Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada. She was funny and knew everyone from the first day. Felipe was our guide for Valencia and Barcelona and he was outstanding as well. For the city tours, every local guide we had was so great explaining the history of each city, we learned so much and they showed us the great architecture and beauty of each place. Now with the logistics, be prepared to walk and to have a lot of energy. This is fast pacing tour and you need to be able to absorb each city and then move to the next one. For the hotels, make sure you get the 4 stars one, we stayed at the 3 stars hotels and the location of the 4 stars were better and by that along the small difference in pricing is completely worth it. Our hotels were good as well, always clean and the staff was very helpful the breakfast was delicious in every place and each of them had a variety of options for all tastes. The included dinners were okay, nothing out of this world but it did help after the longs days of touring having a dinner ready at the hotel so we could rest right after. If you like beer, like we do, make sure to try the local beers at each city! The sangria is great as well! For the optional tours, we did the walking tour through the Albazyn in Granada, the Arab quarter. The views of the Alhambra from the neighborhood were out of this world and from a post card. We recommend doing this if your feet allow it! Overall, TAKE THIS TOUR! It was the experience of a life time and Viator and Julia Travel have gain customers for life! THANK YOU!

The trip covered many amazing historic places and the price was reasonable. Hotels were all pretty nice, although they were not at center locations. Sometime it is far away from restaurants or attractions. Some dinners and most of breakfasts were included. Local guides are all good. There are many highlights of the trip. We love all of the sites we visited. Private Airport pick up and drop off was also very nice and prompt. Since it is a big coach bus tour, there were many people from different backgrounds and ages. In addition, there were two hotels for every stop. So you really need to be patient sometimes. Waiting half hour in the bus for hotel pick up or waiting missing persons happened many times. The trip tour guide is a very nice person. However, the guide did not provide much information on daily itinerary. Also it is hard to managing big group of people. That might be a reason there were a lot of short waiting period. Overall, I would recommend this trip to friends but you will also take some chances.

Sharon W
, Dec 2016
I'm not sure this trip is even available anymore. It is a great deal for the money if you are willing to put up with all the confusion regarding how this trip is organized. There is a reason it is this cheap. We picked up people along the way, dropped people off, and switched buses on our way to Barcelona. We were one of the lucky ones as some people started in Barcelona and were bused 10 hours from Barcelona to Madrid. In Madrid our tour of the city was cancelled because of the Olive Frigate bike race. Nothing was offered to replace it. With some planning on my part, my travel companion and I were one of the lucky ones. We arrived 5 days early in Madrid and added an extra 2 days to our stay in Barcelona at our expense. Without this extra time we would have been extremely disappointed. As it was, we were able to see Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Valencia and I loved everyone of them. Of course, there was not enough time anywhere, but the extra time in Madrid and Barcelona helped make this a wonderful trip.
