    I have just returned from an amazing 4-day Food and Wine Tour of the Montilla-Moriles region of Andalucia based in Cordoba. The small group included my wife and another couple of friends. The whole event was extremely well organised by Rosa Lara who accompanied us on the tour. Our hotel was extremely well appointed in Cordoba and was right next to the mosque. Transfer arrangements in a private minibus were spot on. There were two visits to wineries (bodegas) where we sampled the great Pedro Ximenez wines of this area. In one of the local cellars the tasting was accompanied by a fantastic tapas lunch. We also visited an Iberian ham farm in Los Pedroches Natural reserve (north Cordoba) and had a delightful lunch which included Iberian black pig ham, stuffed mushrooms, traditional cake and interestingly orange in olive oil and sugar. We also had a visit to an olive oil producer, as well as a cheese producer where various wines were tasted. Despite all this food during the day, we had to be fed and watered in the evenings as well. The choice of restaurants during our stay in the evenings was really good and based on local knowledge supplied by our delightful host, Rosa Lara. This is a highly recommended company.

    We just loved the trip that Rosa customized for me and my daughters around Spain. I wanted them to experience the best of the culture and that’s why we picked March to come so we could see the Fallas in Valencia and the Holy Week in Andalucia. Just Explore was very flexible and made adjustments when necessary (For example: including a day trip to Toledo in the last minute, re-scheduling our “view” from a building to see the Fallas). It was fun to watch the faces and hear my daughters’ cameras click incessantly. The history captured by each stop was embraced by each of their senses; sight, touch, taste, hearing, and smell. Absolutely memorable trip! Thank you!

    Rosa Lara at Just Explore listened carefully to our interests and planned a perfect mix of urban locations rich in history and culture, along with visits to national parks that allowed for hiking and breathtaking vistas. Hotels were all charming and gracious. She provided guides for cities (Granada, Cordoba, and Seville) who were extremely knowledgeable about the history and art of these unique locations. All spoke excellent English and lived locally. They not only shared their knowledge but also their enthusiasm for the region, which made our visit much more fun and memorable. Although we typically plan our own vacations, it was very fortunate to find Rosa for this trip. We would never have located these unique settings or been able to plan this detailed itinerary. Her extensive knowledge of the area and her dedication to planning a very personal trip were the keys to making this adventure so special.

    We very much enjoyed our trip in southern Spain with Just Explore. Rosa was creative, flexible, and accommodating when unexpected obstacles arose, such as a flight delay or rain, which derailed our outdoor plans. We highly recommend this very personable travel planner and her services.

    The experience was awesome! You really did a great job. David and I are still astounded by the fantastic itinerary you put in place for us. The planning was flawless and your attention to details was impeccable, from the many airplane flights to the hotels. Thank you for the wine and champaign in our rooms in Marrakech and Seville. You have made us feel special, like kings and queens. The guides in Marrakech and Seville have been exceptional and the hotels wonderful. Everything was smooth and effortless. Thank you for the time of our lives. Bravo.

    What we most enjoyed were the small group visits you arranged, such as to the olive oil producer and the winery. The foodie things were also fun, from egg to tapas bars, and food halls. We also loved the flamenco performance and the visit to the horse show. All the accommodation was very good and really well located. In Madrid, we were able to use the Metro as well as being able to walk to restaurants close to the hotel. We loved meeting you and will happily recommend Just Explore to any fellow travelers who are thinking of going to Spain.

    Once we decided to go for a road-trip in Andalusia, we had the choice of organizing the trip by ourselves or to use the experience of professionals. By surfing in the Internet, we discovered by chance the site of Just Explore. Considering our wishes and demands, Rosa composed a very interesting road-trip. No question we asked stayed unanswered, no effort was too much for her. Although it was a self-drive road-trip, we had the luck to be guided by Rosa through Cordoba.It was a very nice experience, not only because of her professional knowledge, but also because of her charming personality. During the trip, we always had the safety that in case of possible problems we could contact her. You will never regret taking advantage of her services and knowledge. Once again, in name of Timon, Sander, and myself, I want to thank you for all your efforts for making a success of our trip. We really enjoyed it!

    Our trip to Spain was incredible and unforgettable, thanks to the wonderful guides and services of the tour company Just Explore. They took us through the beautiful cities, explaining the rich history of all the sites, and they were so accommodating to our every need as well as flexible to tailor each outing to meet our needs and preferences. Their knowledge of all the sites was quiet impressive and we learned so much (like being in a living art and history lesson!) We would wholeheartedly recommend using Just Explore whenever you travel. It was like having old friends showing us around their cities that they know so well!

    My mother and I have just completed a week Garden and Cultural tour with Rosa from Just Explore, in Andalusia. We were thrilled with the holiday, which was expertly planned and organized. What we loved was that at no stage did we have to worry about booking tickets or standing in queues, as a result, our trip was a wonderfully relaxing way to travel.Rosa introduced us to authentic tapas bars and restaurants not usually frequented by tourists. We would have missed these hidden gems if it wasnt for her, in depth knowledge of the area. All the guides she uses at the various tourist sites were all extremely knowledgeable and her choice of hotels was excellent. We can unreservedly recommend her and her company, Just Explore.
