Warwick Pitchner
Really enjoyable two week tour

Review for: The Best of Spain, Portugal & Morocco

Really enjoyable two week tour of Spain Portugal and Morroco. Nice sized group and well organised. Only one hotel in Fez was disappointing. Guide and company notified. Extremely good guide, and a really well organised tour, of varying sizes as people joined for different parts of the tour.

Thanks Warwick. This tour is made up of smaller tours, hence why you receive varying groups of people. Makes for a great experience! Thanks and we look forward to seeing you again.
