Dear Chloe
I would like to thank you and Ibertours for helping organise such a fabulous tour of Northern Portugal and Spain.
Our group of 16 friends had the very best holiday together experiencing many wonderful delights from each country. There were so many highlights but certainly having Maria, our local Portuguese guide was one of them. She was a delight, both knowledgeable about her country and someone who fitted in with the group so well.
Other highlights were arriving in by foot to our accommodation at the castle in Obidos at the same time as the medieval festivities were taking place. We will also never forget the spectacular meal and scenery at DOC restaurant on the Douro River. Thank you for all your advice and incredible organisation which made our travels so special.
Cheers

Dear Marina and Chloe (and to Ursula on leave),

We wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely beautiful trip to Spain and Portugal.  We loved both countries.

Everything was perfect and exceeded expectations– the accommodation, the tours, the guides, the train travel. The hotels were gorgeous in every respect, the guides were top notch, and everything went smoothly.  We loved the private driver tour in Portugal – we are now hooked on this mode of tour.  We felt so spoilt.  In particular we would really like to commend our main driver, Paulo Gaspar.   He was so professional and went out of his way to create beautiful and personalised experiences for us – including organising my husband to pick flowers for me on Mothers’ Day!   We really enjoyed his company and we were sorry to say goodbye.

Also we were very impressed by the efficient systems in your office.    We dealt with the three of you over a long time as we had to postpone our first trip and due to Marina and Ursula going on maternity leave.   The handover each time was seamless from our perspective and we found each one of you to be very pleasant, helpful and efficient to deal with.

We want to go back to Spain and we would definitely use your services again.

Kind regards

Tom and I have returned from our visit to Spain and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the trip. Everything went very smoothly. The hotels were very well positioned and comfortable. All of our tour guides were great, very knowledgeable and helpful. The chauffeur service was very efficient. And how I envy Spain its wonderful train service. In the main, the time we spent in each place was fine, although one could spend weeks in Barcelona and Madrid. Ronda was a delightful surprise. We could have had an extra day in Córdoba as our stay coincided with the Monday closure of all of the monuments and significant sites. Fortunately the Mezquita was open and that alone was worth the visit to Córdoba. All in all we loved Spain and are already thinking about a future visit. Many thanks for all your advice and help in arranging our trip. We certainly will recommend your service to friends and colleagues.

Ibertours rescued us from a real problem we had as a result of another tour group cancelling our previously agreed trip at very short notice. Three cheers for Ibertours.

We are back home after a wonderful trip to Spain. We are extremely grateful to you for arranging what we now realise was quite a complicated itinerary. Everything went perfectly, even the weather (although it snowed when we arrived in Madrid!). All the guides that you arranged for us were excellent (Maria in Madrid, Marta and Roger in Seville, and Miriam in Granada). They gave us most interesting and informative tours, and having them just for ourselves meant that we learned much more than we could ever have done in a group. Our driver, Jose Maria, cannot be praised too much. While the main roads in Spain are excellent, we couldn't have managed driving through the narrow streets in Seville, Arcos, and Ronda. We would be grateful if you would pass on our sincere thanks to them all.

All the hotels you arranged were excellent, and we very much appreciated you booking us into the Paradors in Arcos and Ronda. Their positions were just perfect, and we were well looked after. We liked the hotel in Madrid very much too - it was comfortable, the rooms were large and well equipped, the breakfasts were excellent, and the reception staff most helpful and efficient. All the hotels were well positioned to visit the main attractions. 

You might be interested to know that the Premium ALSA bus from Granada to Madrid was excellent. The seats were very roomy and much like domestic business class on Qantas. There was an attendant on board who gave us breakfast packs and coffee, and a snack. The roads are all dual carriageways so it was a smooth run, and we had a front seat so had a great view. As an alternative to the train until the rail line is fixed it was certainly a very good option. 

In many respects we would have liked to spend longer in Spain, as we enjoyed it so much. We did find it getting a bit tiring towards the end, though, because we had seen and absorbed so much. So really the length was just about right. We would love to go again, but perhaps next time it might be better to stay longer in one or two places and rent a unit. It would nice if we lived a bit nearer!

Hi John and Ursula, I have just spoken with our clients. They had the BEST time and cannot speak highly enough of your land operator - the driver was probably the best they had over the 4 countries. Again thank you for looking after my clients with such care and professionalism.

We wish to pass on our many thanks for arranging such a wonderful trip to Morocco in which we travelled between the 3rd May 2016 to 11th May 2016 as part of a three coupled party. May we say all the accommodation at every stay of the trip plus the Guides and our personal driver Abdoul from Marrakesh were of the highest standard. We have extensively travelled all over the world for many years and we would rate Iber Tours as the top Tourist company that we have ever travelled with.

When our trip finished with the group at the Riad Slitine in Marrakesh my husband and myself stayed on longer and were treated so incredibly wonderful . The Manager Abdelkoden made sure we were completely looked after, what a wonderful man he was. We will certainly be referring your company to friends and family . we are also looking at travelling to Spain in 2017 and will certainly be in touch on what you might be able to offer us.

Thank you to you and John for organising such a great trip for us.  Everything went very smoothly and we just loved all the cities we visited.  Each different in their own way, but all outstanding.   The accommodation was excellent with great locations.  We particularly liked the apartments in Seville and Madrid where you literally walked out the door and were immediately immersed in the atmosphere of the city. The B&B in Iznajar was fantastic and we were reluctant to leave.  Particularly with the delightful food and hospitality provided.

All hotels had wonderful character, all very different. All were quiet, comfortable and well located with excellent staff. Breakfasts were all very high standard. Our driver was excellent, looked after us very well, made the trip very enjoyable and carefree.
