“Our tour of Andalucia organised  and coordinated by Rosa Lara of Just-explore was in a word, AMAZING. Rosa, in consultation with us, designed an itinerary based on our interests, length of time and budget. From Madrid to Grenada with stops at other cities in between. we explored the rich history and culture of Andalucian in about a month.  We opted for the smaller boutique character hotels which included breakfast. Centrally located all hotels were in the middle of the action. Rosa was available at any time to handle any problems or concerns and was only a phone call away. It was comforting to know we were in good hands with a local who was born and raised in Andalucia. Rosa was very warm, friendly and personable and even joined us for night out in Savilla. So if you’re looking for adventure and a great experience check out and JUST EXPLORE.
We were glad we did”

“I wish I could have spent more time in Andalusia as Rosa  really knows this area and planned the perfect trip for me. She understood my interests, respected my budget and matched my wishes with good suggestions. She was organized,  responsive but also much fun to be with! She personally took me on several outings including a great hike as she knew I loved hiking….  Great service!”

“This trip has been an extraordinary learning experience from start to end.  Rosa’s expert guidance on what day trips we took, her vast knowledge of the Andalusia region, her professional team of historian guides and drivers and the personal touch of her being our private guide on several of our day trips made this the “Trip of a Lifetime”.

“The two weeks trip that Rosa Lara organised for us in Spain focussed on the Iberian Ham trail was JUST extraordinary!  The planning and the layout was perfect. It caters to our interests and much more.  Her attention to detail and genuine concern about our experience was exceptional.  We cannot think how our trip could have been better….”

“Our trip to Spain was absolutely fabulous! The trip managed to be first class and still remain within our budget. Rosa Lara planned each day carefully with details well thought out according to our wishes. She was always available and had a wonderful team lined up to meet all our every needs. We met her in Córdoba where we had a delicious lunch and were lucky to spend the afternoon together showing us her favourite corners in town.  Keep up such good work!”

“This has been a trip of a lifetime. Rosa truly listened to our preferences and interests and provided with a trip of 3 weeks covering the highlights of Spain and some off the beaten tracks. It was a right balance between guided experiences and time to explore on our own. Every guide she matched us with was not only incredibly knowledgeable but also personable and made us feel like we were in good hands at all times”.

“We had a wonderful time in Spain.  Rosa did a very professional job coordinating our entire trip.  The itinerary she proposed was well prepared and beautifully presented in either printable form or downloaded to our mobile devices (iPad or cell phones).   Additionally, two of us in the party were celebrating birthdays while in Spain and Rosa  surprised us by having a personalize gift delivered to our rooms.  Something we like to call  the Rosa touch.  We would highly recommend Just Explore to anyone planning a trip to Spain”.

“The trip definitely exceeded our expectations.  We enjoyed very much the smaller towns because of the personal connection that the guides had with those places, specially Ronda  and Montilla, where we got to meet  Rosa Lara, the owner of Just Explore.  She was able to explain every step of the process and machinery used during the olive oil production.  We had a great time at a local winery where she took us too.
Rosa, just keep on doing what you are doing!”

“We both wish to thank Rosa Lara so much for the wonderful personalized itinerary she organized for Bill and me from Oct 9th – Oct 24th 2017 when we were exploring Andalusia for the first time.  Our plans kept changing during the planning phase for various reasons but Rosa Lara was patient, flexible and gentle in guiding us to find an itinerary, which gave us a great perspective of the history and beauty of Southern Spain.
Rosa Lara was vivacious, flexible and loved the Spain she grew up in. She spoke English fluently which made communication much easier. She was available and sensitive to our needs and remained in contact. The App she used to provide us with all the trip details, including air and railway tickets, boarding passes, hotel and background information we needed  was easy to use and extremely useful as all the information and contacts were on my iPhone whenever they were needed.. and so we carried very little paper. What a wonderful travel organizer app with inspiring photos accompanying the information!
 Thank you Rosa Lara for helping us to have so many great memories of Andalusia”
