“Though active paced, the Scenic Parks Holiday is a memorable,interesting and educational one.
The amazing sculpting landscape resulting from the elements of wind, rain and time is awesome and a joy to behold.
It would be more restful with a couple more 2 nights' stay.”

“Jason, our tour director made our trip fabulous - we can't say enough about his knowledge, his politeness and his tolerance for a bus full of tourists. He has a great sense of humor and gave us lots of interesting facts that we just found so helpful. We got our money's worth and more. We loved Toledo, Seville, and Lisbon and all of Morocco was extraordinary esp. meeting the Berber family. Loved Fatima and a side trip we had to see an old walled village. A couple hotels were a little iffy as far as elevators and rooms. The meals were great and shopping good too! Only downside was long hours driving but I think that is because we did three countries and Morocco isn't that close to Spain. We're so glad we took this trip especially since Morocco was also part of the tour. It was worth the bus trips. Thank you for everything!”
