Mr David Wood

We booked with Cosmos again because we have always found the tour managers to be very well informed, really good at handling all the tourists on the tour and also all the hoteliers, guides, etc. Little things - like toilet breaks - are always important: as usual these had been checked beforehand and were explained well. Above all, we booked Cosmos because they use good coaches and always 4 star hotels -- really important to be able to relax totally on such a busy tour! This holiday was no exception: our tour guide was clearly experienced, extremely helpful and we got a good night's sleep every night! Overall we really enjoyed the holiday and recommend Cosmos to friends. This particular trip (Spain, Portugal and Morocco) delivered in spades and overall we really enjoyed it. I had one reservation on this particular tour about the suitability of a particular optional excursion, but this was accounted for by the questionnaire collected by the tour manager at the end of the trip. We also felt that for those not taking on the optional trips - especially those including a dinner - it sort of left guests a bit high and dry: for example, in Morocco the local hotel (the only realistic place to eat, due to Ramadan and the distance to the town) boasted of 'local cuisine' but this turned out to be a choice between pizza or lasagne.. We don't want to go to Morocco again, but would certainly consider Cosmos.

Good tour directors, great bus, a bit fast paced, enjoyable, informative. The ride back home from the airport did not materialise. There was no one at the airport, and no one answered the call to find the reason for the no show. Had to spend £50.00 out of pocket to get home. I do request a reimbursement,

Madrid

Day

Spaniards say the Spanish capital, situated 2,180 feet above sea level, and is the nearest thing to Heaven. It’s certainly worth making the most of today by joining the included guided sightseeing tour: a full panoramic drive by way of the Avenida Mayor, Puerta Del Sol, Parliament Square, and a picture stop outside the Royal Palace. The optional trip to Toledo is most rewarding, too. The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus was made famous in El Greco’s painting, and even now it’s like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art.
