    • Spain Itinerary: Mid-October

      Spain Jul 10, 2016 at 6:56 AM

      Hello:

      I am planning a trip to Spain in October, and am wondering if anyone has any feedback/advice on my itinerary. We arrive in Madrid on October 7 (Friday) and depart on October 16 (Sunday): 9 nights in total.

      Here's what I have so far:

      4 nights - Madrid
      1 night - Toledo
      3 nights - Valencia/Seville/Granada
      1 night - Madrid

      I am having a difficult time determining whether to visit Valencia, Seville or Granada, or whether we should consider something completely different.

      Does anyone have any recommendations on where to spend those three nights of my trip?

      Thanks!

    • 55 minute layover in Madrid, Barajas to transfer from terminal 4 to 4S-- sufficient amount of time?

      Spain Jul 9, 2016 at 6:44 PM

      Hi everyone,
      I recently booked a ticket from Tel-Aviv, Israel to Funchal,Madeira, with a connection at Madrid barajas.
      I booked the ticket via a travel agency and the operating airline is Iberia , however, i'm a little concerned about the transfer time from terminal 4 to 4S- my flight lands in Madrid at 10:40 at terminal 4, then the flight to Funchal,Madeira departs at 11:35 at terminal 4s, totalling about one hour between touch down and take off, a timeframe within which I have to get from the plane to the departure gate.
      I've done my homework and read about the underground 5 minute train, but ideally I'd really like to have an account of someone who's faced the same transfer; is it possible in one hour ? I'd just like to know it this is a /possible/ amount of time, so as to know if I should get a train down instead, i dont know any thing about barajas and how it goes
      I'd be very grateful for any information anyone can bring to the matter.
      Thanks to all who read :)

We don't want a very quiet resort and we don't want anything too mad either. A few bars and restaurants with a bit of culture thrown in and a beach and spas nearby will do. Any suggestions/reviews welcome.

      Tours by Taxi

      We're in Las Palmas for one day, from a cruise ship. I would like to go to Teror, but can't seem to find bus schedules. I've looked at the transportation website. So, I was thinking of taking a guided tour perhaps with a taxi. Or, are there tour operators in Las Palmas that I could reserve with? I just can't seem to find any information about tours (except for the big tour companies that want 30-40 people).
