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.

May 2019- I have just returned to

Review for: The Best of Spain, Portugal & Morocco

May 2019- I have just returned to Australia from the 16 day 'The Best of Spain, Portugal & Morocco' Tour and loved it. Tour Guides, Drivers and hotels were good & hotel breakfasts catered to every taste. Optional extra's provided some nice surprises. No complaints from me & happy to recommend this tour to others with previous travel experience, not the first time traveller.

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Dear Marie, Thank you for your feedback and apologies for the delay. Great to hear all the positive feedback re our drivers, hotels, meals and optional excursions. I agree, this large tour is not for a first time travellers, as it is made up of other tours with different guides and drivers. We do this in order to offer more than 30 tours in Spain, with weekly guaranteed departures. But by doing this the touring is a little more 'flexible'. Glad to hear your recommendation, and looking forward to you travelling with us again. Kind regards, John @ Sun Island Tours

Just returned from a trip

Review for: Splendid Cruise Dubrovnik - Split

Just returned from a trip to Croatia and Spain with Sun Island Tours and loved every second of it. The cruise in Croatia was the best way to view the Croatian Coast. Jure the cruise manager tended to all our need a and ensured we had a great trip. What a beautiful place. Rodrigo and Maria in Spain made us feel like locals in Spain. Our next trip will be to Egypt, Jordan and Israel and we will definitely be using Sun Island Tours again.

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Hi Marios, sounds like you had a fantastic time. If you do plan to do Egypt Jordan and Israel in the future, we do have a 21 day tour (From Pharaohs to Prophets/From Prophets to Pharaohs) which might suit you. Alternatively we have some shorter tours than do any combination of two of those three countries. Hope to see you there soon!
