This evening, enjoy a drink and traditional Flamenco show.

As a result, it has become, along with the bullfight, a popular symbol of Spain.

Approximate tour duration is 2 hours.

As a first time Gate 1 traveler I am extremely satisfied with the entire trip. There were 49 wonderful people in our group. I was the only solo traveler but had no trouble fitting in immediately. Our guide, Daniel, was simply the best guide ever! He called us Family and treated us as such. The local tour guides were terrific. Truthfully, I’ve never had a better art museum tour than the one at the Prada. I can’t remember his name but he was so passionate about explaining the art work. He did the same at the castle. Our group was exceptionally cooperative and considerate of each other - never a late person! We set up an e mail list that I volunteered to type up and we’ve already shared pic. I’ve already recommended Gate 1 to my friends.

The guides at each site were also very good. Especially Jose??? who took us through the Prado museum in Madrid; his passion for the art was effusive. Our driver Juan was very good, always had the bus under control and was very skilled at negotiating narrow ramps and streets. The hotel selections were also very good, putting us near the most active city areas for good walking access. The provided meals were excellent. The itinerary was a bit rushed at times but I think that it had to be to cover seven cities in nine days on the ground.

The trip was wonderful. This was my 7th tour with Gate 1 and we were very happy. Spain is a beautiful country and our tour guide, Judith, was great. All the hotel's were great. I recommend Gate 1 to everyone.

The trip was amazing value. Truly, we can't figure out the math to understand how you can offer such a trip for that cost. The hotel was very nice, in an excellent location and we all had a wonderful time. We will be on Gate 1 again in May and have converted our friends as well.

Our trip was wonderful and we fell in love with Spain due to our tour guide Josep! He was so knowledgeable, friendly & fun. He went above & beyond our expectations. Our bus driver, Jose, made us feel safe & comfortable & hotel accommodations were top notch. Great job, Gate 1

It was a wonderful experience to tour with Gate1 Travel! The tour guy was great! His profound knowledge on the culture and history of the places we visited impressed me.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.!!! Have already recommended Gate 1 to several friends. Our tour manager, Lisa was extremely gracious . Every tour guide we encountered was knowledgeable & enthusiastic. In fact my husbands' eyes rolled in the back of his head when he heard we were going to the PRADO. But Jose dissected the paintings to the point that my husband came out of there with an enlightenment about art.
