Conall

Rural Iberia while on trans-Iberia road trip from the Mediterranean Coast of  Valencia, Spain to Cuenc, Toledo, Trujillo and Caceres Spain and then on to Evora, Beja and finally the Atlantic coast in beautiful Lisbon Portugal

Please see questions & answers below on luxury Spain tavel & private tours:


* How do you normally begin working?

First please remember that MUCH of what we can offer depends on availability again as Sept is busy.

As soon as a trip is confirmed we go to work to secure the many many details & bookings (hotels, guides, transfers, dinners) ASAP on a “first reserve, first serve basis”.

OK lets get to your good questions below in italics!

* How do you normally begin working?

Do all rooms have AC and climate control?

Yes, Absolutely …. We have never seen a Spanish hotels without this, even the backpacker hostals!   : >

1 Are gratuities and taxes included in the quote? - Taxes (which are tooo high ) are included.

Do all rooms have AC and climate control?

Yes, Absolutely …. We have never seen a Spanish hotels without this, even the backpacker hostals!   : >

2 Are all transfers and tours totally private? No other couple joining on a transfer or tour?

100% private

3 Hotel selections look great. Do we confirm rooms in advance? Is the quote for a standard room or upgrade? We prefer a room on the quiet side of hotel. Good mattresses are also important. The Only You had great review for that.

Yes absolutely confirmed before.(very important in busy busy Sept here). This because people asked us to control price “sticker shock”, so we built the tours with best available standard rooms . So sooner one books the better for selection. We will make every effort to do special request but law of supply & demand is at work here.  So sooner one books the better for selection & request. 

4 What class of service for the train trips?

 Again to control price “sticker shock”, so we built the tours with best available standard seats. Note these are very modern high tech 

bullet European trains (unlike the Amtrack I have taken from DC to Baltimore to see family sometimes)

5 What about the flight from Seville to Barcelona? What airline and class of service?

We normally use the very modern VUELING airline. Again to control price “sticker shock”, so we built the tours with best available standard seats.  This is a SHORT flight of 1hour +/-

6 Is there flexibility to book a couple of the Barcelona nights at Hotel Arts for Marriott points?

I am afraid this has been problematic in years past & had people not getting credited, Then the customers, despite a lot of work on our part to run a perfect 10 day tour,  got a bad taste in their mouth thanks to hotel points 🙁 .

 So hope you understand, we’d rather not risk that dissappointement as we can’t control the points system.

7 Can we arrange some of the dinners for earliest reservation? I know Spain is noted for late dinners…

Yes we often do this! Do note most meals  around 2+ hours later than USA

8 Will we know restaurants in advance?

Yes absolutely 

9 Would like to do a wine tour in the Priorat region from Barcelona, maybe on 10/4. We are not wine aficionados but we are enthusiasts and would like to visit acclaimed producers with a lunch. Do you arrange through a 3rd party or do this yourself?

We do it both ways… will depends on availability again as Sept is busy. 

Again soon as a trip is confirmed we go to work to secure bookings ASAP  on a “first reserve, first serve basis” 

we are both very excited about this and look forward to finalizing the details.

Us too, we love helping folks experience the best of Spain memorably    + sans stress!!!!   thanks, Rachel
