Guides were very professional
Reviewed on: 12 Oct 2013
Our guides were very knowledgable and fun. They took care of our cabs, entrance tickets, etc. They spent a lot of time with us and were able to answer any questions we had as well as recommending activities and restaurants in the area. They made our experience memorable!

We used Valesa guides in Menorca, Valencia and Barcelona. They were all excellent. Their vehicles were spacious and clean. The guides were knowledgeable and flexible for the various desires of a group of 8. I would use them again.

Valesa Cultural Services assisted our travel agent Deb Miller for our honeymoon. They were extremely nice and genuine. Jessica at Valesa even called one of our tour guides just so she can check up on us. There were a few snags to our itinerary that she helped square away immediately. The hotels that they chose were so lovely and luxurious. We also enjoyed the touristy sites and the free time on our own. The only thing that we found interesting was that all our private tour guides were on the older side. Nothing wrong with older retired people but they seemed surprised that we were their clients for the day. I guess they were used to an older crowd rather than two young honeymooners. Besides that fact we really enjoyed all that they could provide knowledge wise. I would suggest for any night time activity with a private guide to have a younger individual. Our tapas tour in Barcelona was great but at times was a little awkward to make conversation with our older tour guide.

Excellent Tour Guide

We hired a private tour guide for a half day tour of the Prado Museum and a half day city tour of Madrid. She was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and made the two days enjoyable and memorable. The Prado Museum has over 5,000 artworks, but she knew exactly which to see and provided insight on the artist, history and culture, as well as the art.

Spain was our first stop during our Europe vacation, so Valesa Cultural Services was our first contact with Europe agencies...and they were spectacular. The guides we had in Madrid, Toledo and Barcelona were exceptional. Our guide in Madrid had excellent art history knowledge, which was very helpful when visiting cathedrals and museums, as we were not art aficionados. We would definitely recommend them to anyone traveling in the region, and would gladly use them again if we return to Spain or Portugal.

The tours and guides selected for us were fantastic. Benjamin, Isabel, and Andrè knocked it out of the park and helped us fall in love with their corner of the world. In particular, I would highly recommend Isabel’s petiscos tour. It was great!

Our experience was great. The itinerary was well planned, all of our hotels, drivers, and tour guides met our expectations and more. We were contacted on two occasions while on tour to ensure all was OK. Our trip was varied and interesting, the tour guides were very knowledgeable. VCS was a good choice for us.
