“The holiday was so much more than we could have imagined, so many memories.
The courtyards, both private and public, gardens in wide variety, full of spring blooms.
The amazing architecture, moorish and christian, cathedrals, the Mezqita, love those keyhole doorways! Enjoyed all our local guides.
Rosa, you were very flexible and open to suggestions, eg adding the olive oil tasting.
Standout venues for lunches, in particular at the winery with the solera barrels.
Excellent accommodation in a wide variety of great, traditional hotels, especially the one in Córdoba.

“I have arrived home with so many great memories and I am already thinking ahead to another trip somewhere else in Spain. You are fortunate to live in such a beautiful exciting country. Rosa, your attention to every detail did not go unnoticed.  The hotel selections, special tours, restaurants etc. were all fabulous and I felt special that I was a part of this wonderful tour. It was a pleasure meeting you and I will always treasure this travel experience”.

“In short, that was a loverly vacation for two old friends that we will always remember. We spent a week in Spain, visiting Madrid, Seville and Barcelona.  Rosa arranged all transportations,  booked us into lovely, moderate priced hotels as we requested. She gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants and even helped us with the reservations. If you go to Spain, you must use Just Explore!”

“This was a thoughtfully curated and organized tour which highlighted all of the best things that Andalusia has to offer. Just Explore team did a great job of choosing interesting hotels in central locations, introducing the group to some of the finest restaurants serving local cuisine, and providing experiences in special palaces and private estates that would otherwise have been impossible to visit. Along with this we were able to see all of the major tourist attractions in each city as well as the most beautiful gardens. It was truly a fabulous experience and I can only offer the highest praise for the service that was provided by this travel team.
The Garden, Wine and Lunch experience at a family-owned winery in Montilla-Moriles region was definitely a highlight. The gracious host, offered the group a glimpse into a privileged life where we saw her beautiful gardens and home and were served a wonderful meal.
Another highlight was the flower tasting experience in Cordoba in the patio of a private home. Ronda was also fantastic and our guide made the experience so personal by taking us to the restaurant of an old friend of his who prepared paella. In addition we got to see the Ronda Romantica Festival which was happening the weekend of our visit. I loved visiting the Palace of the Duchess of Alba in Sevilla and seeing her personal rooms and gorgeous gardens.
In retrospect it was not the tourist monuments, but rather the personal contact that we had with Spanish people and their lives that proved to be the most memorable”

“Our three weeks touring Spain were just amazing! Our trip planner listened to our needs and helped us to create the trip we wanted.  All the logistics went off without a hitch. And even when we had a relatively minor issue when picking up our rental car, she was available and resolved our issue on the spot.
We had the most knowledgeable and friendly guides throughout our time in Barcelona, Madrid and throughout Andalucía.  The hotels were exactly the combination of comfortable, charming and conveniently located that we were looking for. One of the highlights of this fantastic adventure was  a wine and flower tasting in the patio of a private home”

“On relatively short notice my husband and I decided our holiday in Europe was going to begin in Spain, a country we knew very little about but fortunately Just Explore was highly recommended to us and we weren’t disappointed. Rosa Lara and her team put together an 18 day best of Spain tour that showcased a lot of what Spain has to offer.
Our accommodation was first class, each and every driver was courteous and on time. We were constantly amazed by the depth of knowledge and passion shown by every guide, some of them going out of their way to ensure that we wouldn’t get lost on our way back to the hotel.
Highlights included Ronda with amazing views across the valley, the Spanish horses in Cordoba and the cooking class combined with a winery tour. There were many more, too many to mention.
Thank you Rosa, we had an amazing 18 days in your beautiful country without a single hiccup and wouldnt hesitate in recommending your company to anyone who is planning a visit to Spain”.

“My mum and I had a great time in Spain. Just Explore did a great job in customising our trip according to our particular interests (mostly art, historic sites and food). I loved the way they combined structured tours and “free time,” and their suggestions for what to do on our own were just excellent. We also loved her overall descriptions of Spain and the 4 cities we visited (Madrid, Granada, Sevilla and Barcelona) and a very useful APP  that put the timings and all the information we needed, including train tickets, boarding passes etc. at our fingertips. It was terrific having a travel advisor like Rosa Lara who is native to the country we were visiting but also fluent in American English”

“What a grand adventure we had on this small group tour around Andalucia. The accommodations were all comfortable, charming and great located. All the guides were knowledgeable and passionate about their history and city sites. Details concerning travel and transfers were easy because our travel planner had arranged all and explained thoroughly in a digital itinerary.  Delicious and generous meals at the most lovely spots (we enjoyed very much our new discover drinks: vermut and tinto de verano… so refreshing!)

“Our second trip to Spain with Just Explore was another huge success! Rosa Lara already knew about our preferences and coordinated everything in a timely manner.
Our 13 day trip spanned across Barcelona, Valencia, San Sebastian and the Rioja wine region. We were able to enjoy all these cities without being rushed but still making new experiences. All transfers were on time, the guides were knowledgeable, and restaurant recommendations were great.
Barcelona – Great accommodation, perfect size for our family and four and very conveniently located. We especially enjoyed our day out to Coasta Brava and the trip out to Monserrat. Highly recommended. For our older son, watching the La Liga game was another highlight.
San Sebastian – This was one city we really wish we had stayed for longer. The coastlines were breath taking, and the food was amazing! Dining at Arzak (Michelin 3 star) was a very special experience too.
All in all, a great time had by all members of the family, and thanks to Just Explore, everything went smoothly without any hassle.
Rosa Lara frequently checked in with us to see how we were doing and was quick to respond to any queries we had.
I strongly recommend Just Explore to anyone planning a fun-filled and memorable trip to Spain. They can really customize anything for you and provide recommendations for hidden gems & local immersion”
