We were a group of 7. The meeting point was easy to find. Van was comfortable with good air conditioning which felt great on a hot day. Alvar had lots of great history to share. All stops were as advertised. Incredible views of ancient locales. We learned a lot more than if we had. visited on our own. Best surprise was the tasty stop for lunch at a place serving Catalonian food. A bargain for 15 euros! Highly recommend.

This was my favorite tour of a 3 week visit in Spain. Marc and Alex (the driver) are fantastic. They were both very knowledgeable and I felt completely comfortable at all times with Alex driving the van.

Top visit. You learn a lot about Spanish history and architecture. With an attentive and very involved guide. An experience to live without hesitation

A very pleasant excursion. The guide Raquel and Carmen as the driver made us have a great day, with their professionalism and closeness.

Interesting itinerary and excellent guide in alvar
