    Overall, the tour worked very well. The tour guide was excellent. However, my tour started in Madrid and concluded in Lisbon. Two major cities the tour did not explore at all, which I thought was strange. I would have preferred less time in smaller cities and towns and more time in these cities. I ended up doing a walking tour of Lisbon 2 hours after the tour concluded and found it was the highlight of the 12 days I had spent with the tour. I believe I would have said the same thing about Madrid from the very little I saw of it from my hotel room.

    Excellent tour lots of walking. The only thing maybe a few less church's do understand its there culture and very proud of them but would have taken in more.
