A small selection of testimonials:
"Ya un poco más descansada, quisiera agradecerles su apoyo durante el viaje y sobre todo para el regreso a nuestras ciudades de origen… En cuanto al viaje en si mismo se desarrolló sin contratiempos y dejó una impresión final de mucha satisfacción en todos los muchachos… Así que muchas gracias Stefan y Blanca por ese magnífico regalo que hicieron a los muchachos y que definitivamente quedará en sus memorias como uno de los mejores recuerdos de su vida. Quisiera terminar este correo dando unas inmensas gracias a Henar. Fue un elemento invaluable para el exito de este viaje. Su profesionalismo me impresionó porque siempre iba más allá de lo que implicaba su papel. Estaba al tanto de todo, aprendió a conocer los muchachos, inclusive identificando los de Oxford y los de Bath. Me alegro haberla conocido y creo que en una semana no solamente conocí una my buena guía pero gané una amiga."

"My apologies for not getting back to you after the trip, but I fell immediately into a new academic semester and am only now surfacing... Anyway we all had a great great, both the students and me... You did a great job arranging an excellent (but complicated) itinerary. I would definitely plan to do Roman Spain again... You were very wise, by the way, to suggest that I bring a letter from my school. That got us free into a number of places, including the Prado. That sort of things would not have happened in Italy...Anyway, thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip. I would certain call upon you again and recommend you to others."

"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."
Jochen Beglau - MBtouristik. Exklusive Gruppenreisen GbR - Germany

You did a brilliant job, see you next time!."

As an art group, I'm sure that our needs were not standard, but you did a tremendous job in accommodating us, and it's greatly appreciated. I hope we will be working together again next year. Thanks again for all of your help and hard work."

We all had a great time: the hotel accommodations were good, and the hotel food was good too. I want to especially commend our guide Pablo Carbajosa, who is an excellent guide, and a very lovely person. We truly enjoyed his sense of humor, his knowledge, his kindness, as well as his impressive linguistic abilities. I hope we can have another trip with Forocio, if not this year, then next year.
