“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”

“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.”
