The Mediterranean Society in Spain

A slightly belated thank you to the 18 members of the Mediterranean Society who visited Spain with us at the end of last month. During the twelve-day tour they visited Tarragona, Barcelona, and the Costa Brava. It was one of the best group experiences I've had, and would like to thank each and every traveller for the opportunity to share their experiences with us. Highlights included: Tarragona's Roman heritage tour (Thanks Xavi), The Modernista day in Barcelona, Empuries, Cadaques, Besalu, and even a late-late season Cal├žotada! Look for the pictures soon on our website, and thanks again to the whole group for making our job so much fun!

If you would like to plan your group's Spanish vacation,contact us and we will be glad to work with you each and every step from planning the itinerary to the tour itself. Let us be your friend in Spain!
