Package tours to Spain

I'll be traveling to Spain for 10 days with two teenagers in July or August. We want to maximize my time there so I want to pre plan as many tours/visits as I can. Will be flying to Madrid. anyone familiar with Viator tours? They offer a four day tour from Madrid to Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada. is that too much to pack in such a short period of time? Has anyone worked and can recommend another tour company?. Thanks for any suggestions.

Thats is an awful lot for four days. Unless you have some physical limitation, I would not recommend a tour. The transportation is plentiful and conveneient and where you are going there will always be someone who speaks English.

And the adventures will be what your family will remember.

And I especially wouldn't recommend a tour for a family w/ teenagers. Not a good fit IMO . . .

Ick. Packaged tour with teens? And at that price? Can't you plan your own vacation? Spain isn't hard. People here will put it all together for you.

'They offer a four day tour from Madrid to Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada' - Madness (and exhausting in July and August).

The tour doesn't sound bad at all if you are interested in a crash introduction to the culture and history of al-Andalus and some of the finest sights in Spain. Many people just "see the sights", but a good guide might reveal a wide range of other sides to what meet you and which excape most solo travellers.

The tour seems to get great reviews, so it might very well be worth the cost and leave you all wanting to come back for more. http://www.viator.com/tours/Madrid/4...66-2140_A4L/TR

In July/August it will be extremely hot four days though, expect some 100F.
