Overall, I had a great time. Love that the group size was small at only 20 people. It meant that the group hung out together a lot and our tour guide got to know us quite well. I think the tour should be longer such as 13-15 days rather than 10. We didn’t get enough time in places to really ‘delve deep’ such as Porto and Barcelona. I’d suggest 2 nights in each major destination so we can really explore a place. I think this would help with the long drives in Spain as well.
Would recommend as a taster to Portugal and Spain!
Spain and Portugal are stunning. Always lots to see wherever we stopped over.
Our tour leader, Danny, however could have been better in terms of really making sure the group was on time to the coach and having consequences for the ones who put us behind 30 minutes for our travelling time. Sometimes unprofessional and I felt he wasn’t totally organised. Was very informative and knew his history about the places we visited, but also felt as though he would speel off about things that weren’t necessary.
It was just enough time to see all the great highlights. I loved the route!
It's only 8 full days not 10. Considering the cost for the trip, not much was included apart from some meals and accomodation and transport. Our driving tours were short and optional activities were also limited.
Overall the countries/cities we went to were amazing. The bus ride was entertaining. The hostels were in great locations. I just wish the experience had more positive memories than negative.
Included tours could have been more guided rather than showing some things and then sending on your way for a few hours. Included food was hit and miss.
Accommodation was better than expected, guide was great and the places visited were all worth seeing.
Wouldn't recommend. Look at other options
Compared to Contiki Topdeck is so much better priced
Great guide and driver and great people in my tour group which i still keep in contact with
Spain and Portugal are great - what is there not to love about the country
Good value for money, a lot of bus time
Trip as absolutely fantastic
overpriced. the food and living conditions don't match the price
Affordable way to explore new places.
