We very much enjoyed our Firebird trip; the hotels were all excellent ...gave good service and with the exception of the hotel in Barcelona, were very quiet. The last hotel did have a band playing on the roof and one night I had to ring reception when they were still playing after 10.30 (the time it was said they would cease). This was a minor point however. There was also the failure of the taxi to pick us up at Barcelona station which was disappointing because we had an excellent train trip and able to look at the scenery and get a much more overall picture of Spain. But as you would know, we caught a cab instead.

Our guides were wonderful ... Rod in Lisbon was absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful of our needs and provided us with a love of Lisbon because of his passion for the place. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He went out of his way to show us many parts of Lisbon and Cintra. Will never forget his generosity of spirit and the time he spent with us.

Mary Lou was only with us for a short time but we did have a good tour by cab with her where she pointed out the main attractions of the Madrid and where we were able to get an idea of the scope and beauty of the place. She was able to take us to Reiner Sofia and was a guide for us to see, most importantly, the Picasso Exhibition including Guernica, which was a very emotional event for both of us since we had owned a print of it from the time we were married (50 years ago).

Anna Valverde in Barcelona was an excellent guide and spent a lot of time with us, showing us the markets, the major streets, the less well-known features of the city including recommending a restaurant near the hotel where they sold delicious food and which we ate at every night we were there. She also recommended various sites to visit and familiarised us with the city so well that we were able to see all that we wanted to see including the Sagrada Familia ( I cried with happiness to see it) and the Park Guell. We also went to the Paulo Musica (wonderful), on her recommendation and many other places. We were picked up promptly and taken to the station and given guidance as to how to get around (by the car driver).

All in all, we had an excellent time and we are very grateful for the attention we received.
