    We were a very small group (only 4 people) and we could not have written a better day with our guide Federico. We started before dawn and visited a bird observatory to watch the sun rise, then drove through Doñana national park which was extremely peaceful and beautiful. After a small breakfast in El Rocio, we visited Palacio del Acebrón, then headed to the beach at Matalascañas where we visited the dunes and spent a lazy afternoon watching the waves.

Really good and informative trip around Isla Cristina. There was English audiophone after the guide spoke in Spanish. Twice he showed us specific translations on his phone. We stopped and were served white wine ( and for the 10 adults he left two bottles for topping up) or soft drinks for children, and prawns that were caught locally. For €10 I think it was an excellent trip and would thoroughly recommend it

We had a great time with our guide Maria. Stories were interesting, the city is spectacular, so we really liked our experience.
