recommendations for escorted tour from madrid

We are staying in madrid and would like to book an escorted tour to Andalucia and Morocco from there. Do you have any recommendations of a good travel agency to book this with. I was looking at OleSpainTours, but cannot find any reviews of this agency.
Thanks!

Are you fully committed to taking an escorted tour? Most of us find it easy to travel to these places independently.

We are seniors and also do not speak spanish. We feel more relaxed just taking an escorted tour, without the worry of having to plan all ourselves!

Okay, what is your budget and what are you interested in? You can do several guided/escorted tours from Madrid using Madrid Museum Tours (www.madridmuseumtours.com). Hernan and his people are a great source. There is also the Destination Management Company, Improving Travel (http://improvingtravel.com/home_eng.php )and Madrid and Beyond (http://madridandbeyond.com )
.

You can also check with Maribel about setting up a private tour (www.maribelsguides.com).

In order to pick up the travel destination from Madrid, read this - http://www.madrid.net/top-madrid/top-10-day-trips.html It is a brief but very useful info about were to go.

As for travel agencies, Grandtour is one of the most known and discussed, as fae as I know.
