From start to the end, it was exactly what I had hoped for. I am not a tour person in general. This is only my second time... More

We were invited, thru Urban Adventures, to help prepare and eat a meal with a local couple. Tomasz Kolinski and his wife were wonderful allowing us to help prepare the meal and sit down in their home and have a very relaxing time enjoying their hospitality. Hope we can do it again soon.

Taste of Spain did an amazing job setting me up in great hotels and guides for my visit to the area. Also made great recommendations on where to dine and visit in the area. The view and quality of life was superb.
