Mrs Susan Allison

Good value for money. Optional excursions were very enjoyable. Very difficult ferry transfer ( especially for those with any sort of mobility issues) because of the ludicrous rules at the port whereby all suitcases and items of hand luggage have to be carried from the coach, up and down staircases and ramps, and on to the ferry, and the reverse process at the other end.

A very busy tour - not for the faint-hearted - but we visited some amazing places. The tour was well organised and our tour director was excellent. Local guides were also very good. I've travelled with Archers many times and they can always be relied on.

Madrid

Day
2

Spaniards say the Spanish capital, situated 2,180 feet above sea level, and is the nearest thing to Heaven. It’s certainly worth making the most of today by joining the included guided sightseeing tour: a full panoramic drive by way of the Avenida Mayor, Puerta Del Sol, Parliament Square, and a picture stop outside the Royal Palace. The optional trip to Toledo is most rewarding, too. The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus was made famous in El Greco’s painting, and even now it’s like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art.
