WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THIS UNTOUR?
The Spain - Barcelona Untour Includes:
Here's what our customers say about how much there is to do in Barcelona:"Our apartment, with its balcony, view, and WIFI was great. We loved Barcelona. We easily could have spent two weeks there. If you are a walker, as I am, Barcelona is a delight. If you are not a walker, as my husband is, Barcelona is also a delight. Once again, Idyll has picked a perfect location - both the city and the apartment." Vickie Kelber and George Wilhelm
"For a relatively new Untours program, Rachel has put together a fabulously successful program that worked like a charm. She couldn't have been more helpful nor enthusiastic about the city. We hated to leave and have it on our list of places to go back to." Kathleen Deasy
"All of Rachel's suggestions were right-on and helpful. She's great fun." Kathleen Brown
"Barcelona is a vibrant city. Its size makes it easy to become familiar with many neighborhoods. These apartments should be full. We would love to recommend it! Rachel was outstanding! She was thorough, available, informative, and utterly charming!!!" Jane Conrad
"Hang on to Rachel Meyer! What a splendid guide to Barcelona. Rachel's arrangement of the special tour of the Santa Caterina market with Annamaria was extraordinary--followed by a truly fantastic tapas lunch at the market. The cafe attached to the Textile Museum (also one of Rachel's recommendations) was fantastic. Inexpensive, delicious food--including a golden gazpacho which will define the standards for that dish for the rest of our lives." Robert Crossley
"Staff - Rachel - is excellent! She is very knowledgable about the area, and available if there were problems. She was proactive calling about a truckers strike, which was appreciated. She tipped us off to things happening while we were in Barcelona. The Articket is great! Loved the access and the chance to go to the head of the line. The subway passes were also excellent - they made it very easy to get about the city." John Schulz
"Walk, walk, walk. The more you walk, the smaller Barcelona becomes. It really is a delightful city with so much to see. Architecturally it is amazing. Get away from La Rambla and find those places that offer the specials for 10 E or less. They're a good deal. Ask Rachel where she gets those tomatoes. They are the best I've tasted in years." Barbara Martin
"This was one of our favorite Untours, partly due to the excellent coordinator." Gerald Fleischer
"The staff (Rachel) was one of the best on-site representatives we have met. If there was a higher score than 5, she would get it!" Carol Lefevre
