    I did not like the apple cider house tour. I think the tour should have definitely added Girona.

    Portugal and northern Spain were absolutely beautiful. This trip had a great balance of touring with a guide and wandering time on our own. The food and wine experiences were very enjoyable. Sergio, our tour manager was fabulous!

    Truly lived up to its title by providing gourmet foods and wine tasting. Tour guide Javier was smart, kind and very thoughtful, accommodating all our needs. Even though we traveled from Portugal through northern Spain, stays were long enough to be comfortable.

    Interrupted by contracting COVID. Was concerned when the tour manager questioned me as to why I tested (I was quite ill) and then advised me not to tell any of the other tour members. I found this ethically questionable.
