Graduation Present for Teenager: I can't be more excited to write this review. I promised my niece and nephew a trip up graduation. While I travel quite a bit, traveling with teenagers who have never been out of the country or on a plane is another experience, especially when you don't have children of your own. Guided Spain, specifically Emily, was a blessing in making this trip possible. It far exceeded any expectations. The hotels, guides, transportation, and hotels were far better than expected. The experiences planned were diverse enough to satisfy my needs and my nephews. My nephew (17 years old) fulfilled a wish list item - scuba diving certification, and I got to dive along site. The dive company was amazing. Unlike some foreign diving experiences, safety and his education were the of the upmost importance. Because we visited at the right time, we were able to attend the 'Running of the Bulls'. The balcony and experience were fantastic.The guides in both Rupit and Barcelona were some of the best I have ever experience. I cannot thank Teresa Dell and Gerad Guia enough; they were magnificent.
