This was our second A Taste of Spain Culinary Tour. If you like fresh seafood, good wine and excellent sight seeing, I would highly recommend this tour. We've traveled on many tours in numerous countries - and this is hands down, the best we've been on. There were five of us on the tour, and each day we told ourselves there is no way they could top the previous day - but they did. Each day! The whole area of Galicia is one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited, and A Taste of Spain made it even better. We have such good memories that we would consider going back there in the future, and we'll definitely take another culinary tour with A Taste of Spain.

This was our first trip to Spain so, we needed some "hand-holding" as our Spanish speaking skills are nil, but we did not want the typical "tourist" vacation either.

We began our journey a day early so that we could enjoy our first night in Sevilla alone at a charming, beautiful hotel nestled in the city center. The next day we began our A Taste of Spain experience when we were picked up at the hotel by our private guide and driver. They took us to the Aracena region where we enjoyed four days visiting very picturesque villages, eating locally-sourced delicacies at a variety of restaurants, and visiting local sites.

Our "base" was a private townhouse suite with a gorgeous working fireplace on an organic farm. Some of our activities on the farm included milking goats, learning about organic farming, and cooking and eating with the host family. for instance, we baked fresh sourdough bread in an outdoor stone rustic oven. What a fun experience!

We finished our tour at the hotel in which we started and had a very lovely time thanks to A Taste of Spain from beginning to end.

Also, the people of Spain were extremely warm and friendly and we will definitely return one day.

I took my two adult children on this visit. We all felt that A Taste of Spain was fabulous. They left no detail undone. We were met at the train station in Seville right on time. Our visit to the Iberico pig farm was fabulous. Our hosts for 5 days were so accommodating and most charming and caring people. Our rooms were perfect and oh so clean. The daily breakfast was great. Each day we did something special, visiting many small villages, a large variety of restaurants, rode horses, milked the goats, Had a great farewell outdoor BBQ (pork of course) luncheon with bread freshly baked in a brick oven. Our accommodations in Seville were outstanding and the tapas treats and walking tour were superior.

The base tour was in Sevilla and Cordoba, with side excursions to an Iberico ham farm and processing plant, a sherry wine producer, and and olive grower/olive oil producer. We added a few days on either end in Madrid, giving us a tour of the city, Prado and other key sights, in addition to some traditional Spanish meals (roast suckling pig, paella), Rioja, Ribera and many, many fine Tapas. We even had a cooking class, with recipes to bring home. Hotel accommodations were exquisite as were the timeliness and quality of the guides. The private nature of this tour (we were only 4 people) makes it the way to go. I highly recommend this tour and will go back to Spain with them to experience other cities.

It's always kind of unnerving to hand over thousands of dollars via the internet to people you've never met. And then to entrust them with all the details of your 7-day trip to a country where you have never been and don't speak the language. Not to fear - A Taste of Spain did an amazing job of securing the BEST hotels, tour guides, drivers, excursions, food and wine. They provided a 5-star experience throughout and one that I am still bragging about after being home for almost 3 months.
