Just back from a tour of Andalucia

Just back from a tour of Andalucia. The locations

Just back from a tour of Andalucia. The locations were amazing and the local tour guides full of interesting information. The hotel, although fairly old, was comfortable and clean and a pleasant place to come back to and relax at the end of a busy day. Most of my praise has to go to our local tour manager Jana Martinikova, who was truly wonderful. She kept us all amused on the coach with her anecdotes and jokes, she went at our pace, she went to great lengths to ensure everyone was having a lovely time, ironing out any problems there may have been along the way. Full marks to her. You are amazing.
