Casas Espania has been a supporter and sponsor of Eurotourguide for a while now.
The reason was simple- their ethos is similar to our own, and the service they provide covers the Costa Blanca North and South, as well as the Costa Calida, providing visitors with regular updates on events and Fiestas around the region- enabling visitors and dwellers to make the most of their time in the area, and enjoy everything the diverse Spanish culture has to offer.
12 months ago, Eurotourguide achieved their license as a tour operator, enabling them to take it to the next level- arranging trips and tours to various fiestas in the area and beyond.
With that in mind, we recently joined them on a trip to Murcia to see the Christmas lights, Market and Belen. Handily, one of the pick up points is close to the Casas Espania head office in La Siesta, close to Torrevieja, with various points from Ciudad Quesada to Pilar de La Horadada (but not too many to delay progress and increase journey times)
En route our guide was Jess, and she provided us with many interesting facts about areas we passed, as well as what to expect, places and things to see and do in Murcia, as well as providing us with a map and a suggested route- handy so that you could maximise the time you had in the city.
We had plenty of time to go and explore the city, including a few places of historical interest, Casino, artisan market, Carol Singers, lights and display on the town hall.
In all, it was an excellent way to enjoy some of the diversity Spain has to offer, well priced, very informative and no need for the car! Would we go again? Definitely, - there are some events in the future that we are already interested in!
For more information on Eurotourguide, the list of events in and out of our areas (including regular markets etc.), you can visit their website or their Facebook page. There is also a separate Facebook group for their coach tours- well worth a visit, and worth adding to your favourites.
