Kudos to Rosa on her ability to plan a trip that successfully combined the best of Spain’s culture with its incredible history and beautiful countryside.  This was the second trip that Rosa planned with us and once again, we were not disappointed.  Rosa ensured that we fully experienced the Madrid area and the Basque country via private tours and excursions to towns/cities, historical sites and museums with knowledgeable guides.  The hotels she recommended were well located and appointed, and were accurately rated as 4 and 5 star properties with friendly, attentive staffs.  At every stage of the trip, Rosa connected with us to ensure that all was well.  Overall, it was a truly memorable trip and we highly recommend Rosa and her company, Just Explore.”

“Just Explore created an itinerary that was tailor-made for us our family interests.  Rosa Lara was very responsive during the planning process but also while we were in Spain. She even arranged a welcome pack to our hotel in Madrid with fruit and chocolates with we really appreciated. It was wonderful to not have to worry about any logistics once we arrived in Spain.  All our drivers and guides were on-time, enthusiastic and engaging. All our hotels were distinctive, providing excellent service and located in perfect locations for us to walk and explore the cities. We also appreciated the app that our agent provided that contained our itinerary for us to view on our phones while traveling, along with information about each city (including restaurant recommendations and information about cultural events).  We tried several of the restaurants that Rosa recommended. What else can we say? Our trip to Spain was just great and we highly recommend working with Rosa for those planing a trip to Spain”

“We prefer travelling by ourselves and have no interest in “group tours.” The challenge for us is to connect with local residents who might expose us to the hidden charms and history of their towns and cities. We wanted to expand our experience of Spain by exploring its southern region. We were especially interested in the art and architecture, with its mélange of Moorish and Christian influences. Getting to know the local food and wines was another priority. This is where Rosa Lara and Just-Explore’s network  was indispensable. So was her sense of timing and logistics. She worked up a detailed itinerary that laid out the schedule of our trip with impeccable clarity. We knew exactly where and when we were going to each destination. Every stop was documented with descriptions of the towns, restaurants, and cultural sites we would visit. She connected us with first-rate guides whose historic and cultural knowledge of Andalucia was born of a deep love for the region. Rosa Lara’s hotel recommendations were superb and gave us room to choose. She designed a trip that was tailor-made. It was our trip. Her care and attention to detail afforded us too many memorable experiences. We have more to see and learn in Spain, the south and the north, and we will again use the expertise of Rosa Lara and her team at Just-Explore!”

” I am so happy we booked this 10 day trip in Spain with Just Explore! It was absolutely amazing! The itinerary that Rosa created was the most detailed and informative I found. The App she uses is so helpful. We couldn’t have had a better experience with all the tour guides and drivers that she provided.  The hotels didn’t disappoint either.  While Barcelona and Madrid were very nice, modern hotels, we mostly loved our hotels in Andalucia. Old houses and palaces converted into hotels, so unique and quaint that we probably could’ve spent hours just exploring the labyrinth that was the hotel in Seville in particular!

“My wife and I just had the best holiday ever! I cannot imagine having made this trip to Andalucia without having worked with Rosa at Just Explore. She created a perfect food, wine and flamenco tour around Southern Spain. She provided so many wonderful personal touches throughout the trip (olive oil farms, boutique wineries, local concerts and music festivals) She provided a fantastic service and even arranged a visit for me to one of the world’s most renowned percussion instrument makers – J. Leiva in her home town of Montilla – where I was able to buy my new cajon directly from Pepe Leiva himself! Thank you, Rosa, for making this trip so special. Best of luck to you, the Just Explore team, and all of the wonderful people we met there who added so much to our experience!”

“What a wonderful family trip we had in Spain! Traveling with 3 kids of different ages can sometimes be challenging. The trip was well organized from the initial planning towards the very end.  We were always well taken care of. The hotels were all amazing and tour guides were a delight. Rosa was always making sure we were happy and comfortable and she even arranged a surprise birthday gift for our daughter on her 16. We will definitely use Just Explore services again.”

“My wife and I spent 14 days in Spain touring the Andalusian region. The entire trip was planned exactly as we expected.  As soon as we started working with Rosa, we felt so comfortable that we knew that Spain was the place. She is absolutely passionate about her work and her country.  We spoke on WhatsApp while planning the details of the itinerary and during our stay in Spain she stayed in contact with us  to make sure that all arrangements were going as scheduled.  Rosa put the personal touches on everything, from the visit to the vineyards, the olive oil grove and the private drivers who took us through the countryside on our way to Granada, Ronda, and Seville.  We were so fortunate to see Andalusia through the love of its people.  Everyone that helped us, drivers, guides, Flamenco experts, foodies etc are so proud of their region. I really think this area is heaven on earth!”

“This was a wonderful trip.  The itinerary was just perfect.  We enjoyed every place we went and appreciated all of our guides and drivers.  All of our hotels were lovely with great locations.  Rosa was wonderful to work with and we appreciated the list of sites and restaurants that she provided. We had two challenges with health-related incidents and she arranged excellent medical care. We fell in love with Andalusia!”

“Rosa, just wanted to thank you for organising my adventure in Spain.  I had tried to organise it myself and found it all a bit overwhelming, but then I found you and was rescued.  Your friendly and personal approach , from the very first phone call to me in Australia, made me feel very confident in asking you to organise my trip . You listened carefully to my interests and designed a tour with a wonderful balance of personal guides and free time for my own exploring.  The app you used put all of my important information in one accessible place and the personalised tips for events, eating, history and art were perfect!
The accommodation, the small groups tours, the personal transport when required, and the personal tour guides were all fantastic.  For an older solo traveller I was nervous about going to places I had never been before, but my nerves vanished from day one.
I loved every minute and if the stars align, I will be coming back to Spain one day, and you will be the person I contact to organise my next perfect trip!”
