“Just Explore helped us arranged a tour of 3 weeks in Andalusia, Valencia and Barcelona and I cannot recommend highly enough the professional skills of Rosa Lara, the founder. We visited spectscular places and learn all about the wonderful Spanish history, had recommendations for lunches and dinners plus a list of other important places to visit on our own. The hotels  were characteristic of the areas we visited and all located within walking distance of main places of interest.  We absolutely enjoyed our visit to Spain. Thank you so much Rosa, for turning our trip to an unforgettable experience!

“This was our first trip to Spain. We normally plan all trips ourselves but for our honeymoon we decided to have some help. From the initial email with Rosa Lara onward we felt that we were in good hands.  The level of detail and the abundance of information was amazing, all way above our expectations. Rosa was a delight to deal with and we are truly thankful to her for making our honeymoon one of the best trips we have ever been on. If we ever return to Spain, she will surely be getting a call from us”.

“Thank you for making our first trip to Spain so fabulous and stress-free. We had never used a travel agent before for any trip, even local, and using a foreign specialist was out of the box for us.  What a delightful outcome. If you need references, please feel free to use us or this email. We appreciated how professional your company is and that no detail was too small.  Your 24/7 text and phone availability to answer any questions, from how to tip, to good restaurants, to answering questions on local customs in the area was so fun.  I felt like we had a local friend – and now I hope we do.  I just don’t think we would have experienced Spain in the same way without you, Rosa.  You need to expand to other countries so we can use you for all our trips :)

“I spent 10 weeks in Spain and Portugal and the highlight of my travels was a seven day Andalusia Gourmet Tour with Rosa of Just Explore Holidays & Tours.  It was a wonderful experience to meet people on their farm and/or factory and share a meal with them and experience firsthand life in Spain.  Rosa is a fantastic guide and has a wonderful personality and makes each day a new and unique experience.”

“Just Explore planned a perfect honeymoon for us. Rosa Lara was easy to work with during the planning process.  She did a great job of listening to what types of things we wanted to see and do, and then putting together an itinerary that matched our interests.  She definitely recommended fun places and activities that we never would have found on our own.  She was very responsive throughout and she helped us to design “our” trip, rather than selling us a pre-planned agenda.  During the trip, everything went off without a hitch.    We used the recommendations that Just Explore provided for each city of restaurants/bars  and things to do in our free time. All excellent!!”

“What a great trip to Spain! Our travel planner, Rosa Lara made it stress-free! After telling her what we wanted, she suggested places that we never would have thought about, each of which turned out to be great! We loved all of the hotels she suggested and each one was an interesting and historic gem. Rosa was an excellent communicator and we even had the chance to meet her in person in her hometown, Córdoba where we enjoyed a lovely afternoon with her. That is an absolute personal service!”

“The trip through Andalucia could not have been arranged better. We were never disappointed in the service nor the recommendations. All of the transfers were performed timely and very professionally. The tours were all magnificent and we were never stuck waiting in lines. Rosa was terrific!  She was patient and prompt in replying to the multiple inquiries from all of us in a very professional way. The hotel recommendations were all excellent. She did a great job. When we return to Spain to visit more of the Southern Coast and the Spanish Islands we will definitely contacti Rosa again”

“Rosa did an amazing job planning our honeymoon to Spain. The complete itinerary exceeded all of our expectations! From start to finish the whole trip was planned out so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Rosa was very professional and punctual in responding to all our questions.

“The trip that Just Explore arranged for us in Spain was absolutely wonderful. We were planing to stay in Spain for a month and even thought we had some ideas, Rosa mentioned smaller places to see which were off the beaten track that we would never have thought of ourselves. We very much enjoyed our cooking lesson in Sevilla, hiking in Sierra Nevada, visits an olive farm and a bull-breeding farm. We were lucky to spend a day with Rosa and some other travellers she had at the same time to experience a very special celebration, a local festival at her hometown.  We tried local food, watched locals dancing flamenco and taste the local wines. Rosa was always reachable to any questions during our trip. I have nothing but praise for the organisation of our itinerary and the pleasant way in which all aspects were handled”
