This was a comfortable and well organised tour going to a great variety of wonderful locations with excellent local guides plus an efficient, likeable and very helpful tour guide. We stayed in excellent and well located hotels with Granada and Salamanca being particularly noteworthy. We travelled in a large coach and while this was comfortable the obvious negative impact these enormous tourist carriers are having in Spain and Portugal did worry me. I also felt Albatross could be more proactive in environmental awareness by discouraging plastic bottle use, etc. Arranging my tour through Global Journeys was a painless and efficient process with excellent ongoing communication. I would recommend them.

Hello Rosemary, Thank you for your feedback. We are very happy you enjoyed so many of the highlights of our 'Magnifico' Spain and Portugal program. Thank you for your comments regarding the environmental impact of some aspects of the tour, I will certainly pass these on to our operations team in the UK. In regards to the use of a full size coach, this is something we offer as a benefit to our customers. Please note though that we contract the youngest coaches available in each country, so the actual fuel emissions are far more efficient than the coaches of old. Thanks again for your comments and we hope to see you on board again in the future. Warm regards, Stephen York - National Sales Manager.
