American Attorney’s Spain Trip for Family & Friends

“The highlights of our Spain trip, beyond the caring seamless planning, was the deep insight of your guides, Seville and Granada in Andalucia, the great tapas picks, Barcelona’s Roman past, medieval villages, the spectacular Mediterranean Costa Brava, the fascinating Greek and Roman ruins…. Our escorted Barcelona time was memorable, pleasant, informative and enjoyable!… loved the private Gaudi tour, fun yet professional wine tasting and meeting the winemakers, who are working hard, making great wine and enjoying life. The interactive cooking lesson and dinner were, on reflection, a very nice way to spend that evening and added a unique touch…..Good luck with the Spain YOUTUBE videos!”
