Flo was awesome!
Ron · May 23, 2023 · Male · 55 to 64 years
After coming home from vacation, I have had a chance to think about this tour fully. We (myself, husband and mom) all had the greatest time. Flo is exceptional as a guide; for me, it was her knowledge of the history of the places we toured and the points of interest. We knew the food she would take us to would be exceptional - it is Spain, after all. But, we were amazed by the food we sampled (those mushrooms!).It helped that our group was friendly and got along great. An amazing experience overall and highly recommend this tour and Flo.
