“We went to Andalucia in a group of seven organised by Just Explore in April 2015. The tour was very professionally organised by Rosa Lara who runs the company. She created a bespoke itinerary for us with all private transfers and hand-picked guides in Seville, Cordoba and Granada to maximise the enjoyment of the tours. Miss Lara anticipated our needs and meticulously put together the highlights of Andalucia plus extra attractions especially for us and personally accompanied us in these cities. We would highly recommend Just Explore for a memorable journey in Andalucia and would not hesitate to use her wonderful service again should we ever come back to this wonderful part of Spain”.

“We have just returned from Andalucia, where we had the pleasure of the
company of charming Rosa Lara, who gave us 150% of her time and expertise as
a guide for the Andalucia region.  She drove us around for seven days to see
Ronda, Seville, Cordoba, Málaga and Granada.  Her hotel choices were  excellent,
particularly the Granada one, which had a one-star Michelin restaurant.
Besides her own extensive knowledge of the area,  she arranged
English-speaking local guides and, because of her efforts, we enjoyed the
whole experience.”

“We were very fortunate that our travel agent found Rosa Lara of Just Explore Holidays and Tours to tailor make a self guided walking tour of the Pueblo Blancos in Andulcia. Rosa did an amazing job to fit in with our schedule, select a mix of authentic, rustic and luxurious accommodation, recommend fabulous places to eat and drink, whilst our luggage was transported each day to our next destination. The walk was the perfect combination of challenging but not intimidating, spectacular scenery, perfect weather, some easy and some more difficult tracks to find. Roman roads, ancient ruins, wildflowers, bird life, and an eclectic mix of domestic animals, up close and personal. We managed not to get lost, well maybe only long enough to get the adrenaline flowing. Each day concluded with a well earned cerveza, that’s when beer tastes it’s best, another delicious meal, chatting with the locals or using sign language, our Spanish is very limited. A great holiday adventure. Thank you Rosa”

“I have no hesitation in recommending Rosa Lara’s services as a travel guide. She is most knowledgeable about all aspects of travel in Andalucia, showing a real interest and enthusiasm for her country and her clients. I had  a most enjoyable 8 days with Rosa and could not have asked for a warmer or more obliging travel companion”.

“The Andalusia region of Spain is a remarkably beautiful and historically fascinating part of Europe. We never could have discovered its wonders without the assistance and direction of our fabulous guide, Rosa. She introduced us to the region’s most interesting cities, sites and cultural nuances. I found Cordoba to have an almost magical quality from its intricately paved stone walk ways to its grand and ancient mosque-cathedral. My husband was completely charmed and taken by Granada, with its stunning views of the Alhambra palace and picturesque streets bordering the river. Rosa guided us to authentic and delicious restaurants and was a knowledgable and fun companion. We also highly recommend a tour and tasting of the region’s delicious olive oil and unique sherry-like wine, Montilla-Moriles. We had a wonderful vacation and hope to return in the near future”

“We really loved the vibrant lifestyle, the tapas bars, the architecture, not least of all the mosque in Cordoba and the day visiting the olive grove and vineyard was informative, relaxing and fun. Meeting local people and seeing how they develop their local products, gave us a great feel for the locality.  I personally loved the day we had lunch in the garden overlooking the Alhambra – WOW factor!      
Without your guidance I doubt we would have tried as much local cuisine and drinks and we were very impressed with the knowledge, expertise and sense of humour displayed in your choice of local guides eg. The Mosque and the Alhambra Palace.  Your choice of accommodation was great, both comfortable and with character.  We have all returned saying that Spain is a wonderful surprise on many levels and would not hesitate to recommend Just Explore to any of our friends.  Rosa, we thoroughly enjoyed your company, we appreciated your assistance with any little problems we had and your desire to make our holiday special. Your sense of humour is great, which is essential for Australians.  It really isn’t complicated.  Thanks so much for some wonderful memories.
Best wishes.

“Dear Rosa, thank you so much making your Andalusia come alive for us.  Your suggestions and your flexibility to accommodate all our requests made our trip just perfect. We have so many highlights: our day with you at in the Montilla-Moriles wine region,  Ronda and the white pueblos,  tapas & Chinchilla wine, the Spanish people.. Each city with its history, culture and architecture  enriched us, enchanted us and educated us. The guides were terrific and so generous with their knowledge and time. The hotels were perfectly located so we could walk everywhere. I could go on and on, but I hope you will know how much we loved everything about our trip with you. You have a great talent for organizing special things for your clients. You are an absolute delight to spend time with and the only sad thing was saying good-bye to you, our new friend.
