In the Basque Country

My daughter and I had a great 4 days of adventure, cycling from Villavociosa to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Xavier did a great job handling two very different riders! My daughter, a young experienced athlete and myself a cycling novice. The hotels and locations he selected were wonderful! Xavier customized our trip to our needs.I would truly recommend BikeBasque to anyone wanting to bike in Europe. I hope to be back. Read more

Cycling for food and wine lovers - self guided tour

From the moment we met Alan we felt confident and comfortable that this trip will be great and it was ! Great bikes, good advice, long lunches on route (made for relaxed short afternoon ride !), accommodation and food kept getting better and better. Wonderful trip, as energetic as you want it to be. The Spanish people are wonderful, the area you ride is diverse, interesting, full of history and culture. We loved our food and wine and trip cycle went from Fawlty Towers quirky fun dinners to stunning cuisine and wines. It caters for all tastes. A good, fun cycle in an amazing area. Read more

Aer Lingus Vacation Store Company Reviews

Did not want to leave!
We booked a 10 day drive yourself Ireland castle vacation through Aer Lingus. The whole vacation was just fantastic. Booking the package through Aer Lingus made everything super easy. Customer service was a great help before we left, answering all of our questions. The car rental at Dan Dooley Car was quick and easy. As well, we had no complications at any of our check-ins. It really left us just to sit back, relax, and enjoy our vacation. We plan on returning to Ireland and will be using Aer Lingus again.

Great COSMOS value November 2016

4.0

Spain, Portugal & Morocco

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all. Read more

Discover Andalucia August 2016

4.0

Authentic Andalucia

This was our third exodus trip and up to our expectations. You get a great feel for Andalucia with the just the right mix of sightseeing a bit of walking and a good hotel to relax in. As usual the organisation was excellent
Our favourite day was our free day spent in Ronda. Our group leader arranged a taxi to the railway station. Ronda is 35 mins and the next stop down the line and in my opinion really worth visiting, the gorge is spectacular band the old town is compact and close to the station. Eating lunch in a restaurant overlooking the old bridge was spectacular.

Alexsi was excellent and really help make the holiday

Its a good idea to take an additional bag suitable for packing overnight stuff for Seville and Granada.Our room

Our room was clean and comfortable but I thought the days of a small shower tray surrounded by a clammy cold shower curtain was over and the storage space was a bit mean for two people especially when there was a locked wardrobe in the room (we were told this was for hotel supplies)
Also on arrival the meal provided was very basic. The catering in the rest of the week was much better
