Estoy muy contento, se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo!

Me encantó viajar por primera vez con Spaintop, principalmente porque eran dos lugares que tenía muchas ganas de visitar, pero no me había informado directamente sobre el mejor hotel para alojarme, los mejores tours para hacer y solo quedaban unos días . ¡Así que SpainTOP me dio todos los consejos! Me encantaron los hoteles de Granada y Sevilla y fui muy bien recibido en el aeropuerto. La guía de Granada fue una de las mejores guías que he tenido la experiencia de tener en mi vida, ¡una enciclopedia! Estuvo todo el día conmigo, me explicó todo, me hizo compañía. ¡Era muy guay! Granada es una ciudad a la que volvería una y otra vez. Me encantó que sugirieran tomar el tren de Granada a Sevilla, porque es un viaje hermoso. También puedes ir en coche, pero me pareció perfecta su recomendación de ir en tren. En Sevilla el hotel era un sueño, fueron 3 noches maravillosas! Recomiendo encarecidamente SpainTOP para viajar, porque la verdad es que no tenía nada planeado, lo organizaron todo, dieron consejos de restaurantes, etc. Estoy muy contento, se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo y no veo la hora de volver a viajar con ellos!

The trip of a lifetime

Look no further than SpainTop to plan the most amazing journey for you!  As a seasoned traveler to Spain for almost two decades, I had definite ideas and opinions about the itinerary. Antonio and his team wove each one into the fiber of the trip without compromising what he knew would enhance the trip for both a frequent Spain visitor and her group of dear friends who were visiting Spain for only the first or second time. All have said that it was the trip of a lifetime.

A wonderful trip in Portugal

We had a wonderful trip to Portugal. Our agent was extremely responsive and designed an itinerary based on our interests and desires. We were able to experience many different sides of Portugal and we loved them all. The company is located in Madrid but they have many sources in Portugal and they put together a truly enjoyable trip for us.

First time with travel agent

My husband and I have always been independent travelers and never used a travel agent. As we started to research our trip to Spain, we were struggling because there was so much we wanted to see and we had such limited time to spend trying to figure it all out. As we were trying to plan, I read a review on a travel forum which mentioned SpainTop. I called their US number and reached Antonio right away. In his perfect English, he asked me and my husband a series of questions.

SpainTop. Excellent organization

The trip organization by this Spain travel agency was excellent. All the hotels were in the city center with an easy walk to the heart of the city. The train reservations and tickets were all done before I left.

I must say SpainTop planned an exceptional trip throughout Spain and Portugal. We had the time of our life! Thank you for a job very well done!
Your hotel selection was outstanding - always in a very central location. We could always walk to major attractions and quality restaurants.
The company you used for drivers and transportation was exceptional. They were always on-time, courteous and knowledgeable of the local area. We felt in very safe hands. I had no idea that parking would be such a challenge. They were great and very skilled.

SpainTop made our vacation exceptional

We had very high expectations and they were exceeded at every level. Our agent at this Portugal travel company did an outstanding job. The hotels were fabulous and we were greeted and treated with care. The itinerary proved outstanding. The drivers, especially the one in Lisbon, was wonderful. He was always on time, made changes to shift stops around to make the history  more evolutionary and  he was so knowledgeable about the history and included other very interesting facts.

SpainTop made our dream trip perfect

SpainTop did a fantastic job to make our dream trip perfect. We gave them our travel budget, told them where we would like to go, and they did all of the planning. Our drivers and tour guides were always on time and very knowledgable. The hotel accommodations were better than we would have found on our own. Only one time did we end up in a location that we had not intended to be in. We called the 24 hour phone number, and they immediately fixed the situation.
