“We can not be more grateful to have found Just Explore and ultimately Rosa. Right from the start we knew Rosa was the one to plan this trip for us when she listened to everything we said in the initial stages. We were very ambitious so it required much planning with many transfers and hotels, not to mention all the tours and fun and exciting things Rosa had planned for us. Not only did she plan them but joined us and when not close by continued to check in. Top notch personal service! Rosa is the reason we had a smooth and trouble free trip. Thank You thank You for taking us through Spain for the trip of a lifetime. Adios my friend. May our paths cross again one day!”

“From the very start of our travel plan, Rosa Lara listened to our ideas, offered appropriate suggestions, and then put together a first rate plan. During the course of our trip to Spain, there were routine updates and follow-ups and we always felt like there was someone to go to if an issue arose. Rosa is very energetic and attentive.  I would highly recommend using this company and their service – it is first rate”

“Had a great trip with Just Explore attending to all the details.  All arrangements went without a glitch. As our tour guide and coordinator, Rosa Lara was gracious and open, and a delight travel companion. Besides covering the obvious high points in the various cities we visited, Rosa brought us to incredible “special places” that I’d never expect to find without her. I have no reservations about recommending Rosa and Just Explore for a guided tour to Spain.  Five Stars!”

“We recently returned from a trip to Andalusia organized by Rosa Lara, manager of Just Explore. We had a delightful experience, the area is full of history, culture and art, the tours were perfectly organized, always on time, and the hotels and meals were very good.  We travel frequently and all the arrangements were up to our expectations.
The art historian guides were knowledgeable and cordial.  The driver was a plus for the trip:  prudent, skillful, cordial, attentive, and very also very knowledgeable.
Travel Manager Rosa Lara  is very professional, energetic, organized, generous with her time, and always attentive that we all have fun.  Our group was homogeneous and we got along very well, which was a plus to the trip.
We are delighted to have chosen Just Explore on our trip to Andalusia.  We would choose it again on another tour.”

“  I never thought of having handcrafted travel but it was incredible and would do it again in a heartbeat. Rosa Lara did an amazing job of fitting a lot into a two week vacation, which allowed us to make the most out of our time in Spain.  She fits in the perfect balance of tours and free time. She was attentive to email and coordinating the perfect itinerary prior to our departure, the online app to view the itinerary during travel was super helpful. Thanks again for the great trip!”

“Thank you for all of your helpful assistance to make of our honeymoon such as amazing experience. It’s been a real pleasure to start our marriage with such an awesome trip from you. Just Explore had put a ton of thought into how to maximize our time to see and do things and also provide relaxation and unscheduled exploring. We probably wouldn’t have even been able to see many of the busier sites if we didn’t have expert personal guides and skip-the-line access. Our agent’s recommendations for restaurants and places to see in our unscheduled hours were also perfect–not just tourist spots, but really memorable, special and still affordable meals. It was awesome to meet our travel agent, Rosa Lara in person for a guided tour of olive oil and wine production in beautiful Montilla, her hometown”.

“Just Explore put together a 14 days private trip that was exactly just what I asked for. Some guided tours, relaxed pace and a lot of time on our own. We visited several destinations in Spain. Rosa Lara, our travel organiser,  gave us lots of recommendations and tips on what to see, where to eat and interesting attractions. She was very hands on, always stayed in touch, even met us for lunch in her hometown, Córdoba. And all the tour guides she chose for us were wonderful people and very knowledgeable. We will definitely call on her if we ever visit Spain again”

“I want to tell about this whole trip experience by jumping up and down and shouting out loud how wonderful it was! I planned this trip for 2 years as it was on several of my girlfriends bucket list. I had to pick the right trip for 6 individual ladies and I am so thankful we were put in touch with Rosa Lara!
She made us feel comfortable from day one, from the airport to the end with going back to the airport to make sure we got on the plane with no problems.
We stayed in two places as our central points, one in the country (beautiful B&B) and one in the city, (cute apartments!) both were outstanding and completing different from one another.
We ate at wonderful restaurants, from roof top views, to a winery in the middle of the vineyards where the owner’s mother cooked for us!  We love you Rosa and your wonderful guidance. Truly so a trip of a lif time!”

“We just came back from a five weeks trip to Andalucia and we don’t have enough words to thank Rosa for such a wonderful trip.  Working with her from start to finish was a true pleasure.  Every aspect of the itinerary she put together worked perfectly and we are still glowing from how exceptionally pleasant the entire experience was.  We’ve have a lot of special moments on this trip but the most memorable one was to experience Semana Santa in the real crowd and surrounded by locals”

“This was our first time to Spain for me and my husband and we must say that we had a wonderful trip! We only have positive things to say about our experience and will be referring all of our friends. Just Explore did an excellent job of planning the perfect vacation for us to visit different parts of Andalusia.  Every moment was perfect as Rosa pays so much attention to detail and the experience was exceptional. All drivers and tour guides were very knowledgeable and professional but we especially enjoyed meeting and spending time with Rosa.  It felt like we were visiting a long time friend as she is so personable.”
