Mrs Margaret Wilkins

The tour was excellent and packed with awe-inspiring visits and information but it was somewhat rushed at times. We "lost" the tour guide on numerous occasions as we couldn't keep up due to the crowds of people and the fact that our son who has Asperger's syndrome kept wandering off. I found this very stressful so, in retrospect, it probably was not the right choice of holiday for us but perfect for the more able.

Hotels and coaches very good complimenting the excellent guide. Only downside was return flight to Gatwick being delayed by over 5 and a half hours (Norwegian Air International).

Overall value for money. Those evening meals which were provided were not of a high standard. The package could be improved by calling at less locations between the main centres and having more time at the others.

The tour manager and driver were brilliant. The hotels were great except the one in Coimbra where we spent 1 night which we thought was below average compared to the others in Lisbon, Seville and Madrid. The included tours and optional excursions were brilliant. The weather was divine. This is our second time choosing Cosmos holidays and we're definitely choosing them for our next holiday. We highly recommend them to others who want a package holiday.

Mr Malcolm Clayton

Wonderful countries and a wonderful tour. Day after day of real gems of the most beautiful cities & towns, and what a history lesson from our guides. We were in a group of lovely people from all over world, and not only found out about Spain & Portugal but many of their counties too. We must reserve our biggest vote of thanks to Enrique, Cosmos tour director, he worked tirelessly to make the trip not only run like clockwork, but very informative and most of all FUN. He tales of a partially " Mr Smith " was most entertaining. I would recommend this tour to everyone and we will deferlently be doing another, but it will have to be something special to better this one.
