“We would like to thank you for organizing an excellent trip for our program. I would like to comment particularly on the excellent guides we had this time (Elena along the Way, Maria in Santiago, and Theresa in Madrid). I can’t complement them all enough, all very knowledgeable and flexible to meet our groups’ needs. Our bus driver, Manuel, was also great.
Our whole group was very pleased with the accommodations all along the way as well. I think the only hiccup we had was figuring out the taxi support and payment during the Camino. It all worked out in the end and our group had a very positive experience. ”

Carew Travel Consultants – United States of America
“Our group – a small classical choir – very much enjoyed our four-day-trip to Madrid, which was especially due to the refined and personal organisation of Forocio. The hotel, the restaurants (thinking of that Cafe with live opera singing!) and the local tour guides were thoroughly selected and strained to meet our needs and desires. A special thank you we would like to give to Forocio for arranging for our choir to perform during a church service at the famous Almudena Cathedral – what a delight it was to sing within this dignified and magnificent edifice! Another climax of the tour was a day tour to Toledo, the “secret capital of Spain”. Wow, history’s unwinding there in every brick and every corner you turn. Again, thank you very much to Forocio, it’s been an unforgettable trip.”
