Lorna Roberts' Escorted Tours
About Lorna's tours:
These holidays are designed to include some of Spain’s most beautiful and lesser known landscapes. This is “Real Spain” at its best. There will be no pressure, no early morning starts, and no compulsory sight seeing. Most Paradores are less than one hundred miles apart, but on the occasional day when a longer journey is necessary we will follow the advice of the AA which is to have a break every 2 hours or every hundred miles, so there will be no exhausting long journeys. She aims to make the travelling a pleasure and organise lunch breaks in interesting places. The coach will be there to transport you from Parador to Parador, and will be on hand for optional excursions to places of interest.
For the energetic there are spectacular walking routes, for the culturally inclined there will be visits to archeological sites and museums, and for nature lovers we include Nature Reserves and National Parks. These are value-for-money holidays which include accommodation, breakfast and dinner (most nights) including wine, coffee etc., in Spain’s unique Parador hotels, or hotels of similar quality where there is no Parador. By following a route via Paradores the most remote and scenic regions of
Spain are discovered.
There are no ‘hidden’ extras as all travel in the bus, drinks with dinner, porterage, restaurant tips, and excursions are included. Entrance fees to Museums etc visited on optional excursions, bar and personal bills in hotels and snacks during the day will be charged for at the time. On occasional nights dinner is not included to enable you to have a choice of restaurant.
FLIGHTS are not included. The reason for this is that some people prefer to make their own flight arrangements or might wish to extend the holiday by travelling on a different day and meeting the group at the airport.
For talented photographers:
Each year a competition is held and people who have been on the tours are asked to send in their 3 favourite photographs. The winner receives a voucher for a 2-night break in a Parador or a discount of 250 Euro on a future tour, so be sure to bring your camera
Lorna usually arranges one holiday each year to include light hearted golf competitions organised by “Bachelor” Con Cluskey. These are Parador holidays combining the relaxation and interest of our tours with golf competitions at some of Spain’s best courses with special reduced rates for Parador guests. For non golfers there are optional excursions and time to relax in the tranquil settings of the Paradores.
Lorna has lived and worked in Ireland for many years, so her tours are normally made up of participants from Ireland and Britain.
