“I couldn't be more excited to collaborate with Craftours on what I believe will be a once in a lifetime adventure. I am hoping that you are equally excited and will join me for 9-days exploring Spain through creative eyes. In addition to the extensive list of local adventures, I will be hosting a creative workshop called "A Field Guide to Spain." Over the course of three sessions, we will each make and fill a handbound book that will become our Field Guide throughout the trip. While you explore and experience all Spain has to offer, we will fill it with notes, drawings, clippings, photos, momentos, and more. At the end, you will leave the trip with not only wonderful memories, but a treasured keepsake that documents your entire experience.”
- Seth Apter
“I have always wanted to return to Spain after filming my television show, and promised I would with a passionate and creative group of travelers. So when Seth and I spoke about doing a trip together and he said Spain was high on his list, I knew this was the tour I wanted to personally escort. I have a strong feeling this will sell out quickly, so if you are interested in joining us, please be sure you secure your place as soon as possible and take advantage of this early booking discount. Gracias mi amigos!”

Shelly Waite, Las Vegas, NV - “It was an amazing time with a great size group of about 22 of us. This allowed us to get to know each and everyone. We had 2 different tour guides, and both went above and beyond to make our experience awesome. The care and love both Holly and Rosie (and Vic her so helpful husband) made the experience so much more. They all did the company proud.”
Bodil Hall, Edmondton, Alberta - “My Granddaughter and I could not have had a better time, age difference was not even mentioned. We are constantly looking at our pictures and the ones that are shared by the rest of the group. The variety of things to see and do are too many to describe. I am so glad that we were able to take part. Thank you Bodil and Lisa.”
Sheri Knox, San Diego, CA - “I've never traveled alone on a group trip like this but found the other travelers to be wonderful and Rosie and Victor as hosts to be delightful. Our city-specific tour guides were outstanding! There was a perfect balance of craft-related, tourist and on-your-own time. I will definitely go on another Craftours trip with Rosie and Victor!”
Deborah Dyar, La Mesa, CA - “A wonderful time and a great group of ladies.”
Babs Behling, San Diego, CA - “The Barcelona part of the tour was my favorite. I could spend another week there at least.”
Mary Lou Heinrich, Boise, ID - “Great trip of a lifetime. I've never done anything like this and it was a wonderful experience.”
Marilyn Edie, Pisgah Forest, NC - “Wonderful experience. Qualified caring knowledgeable tour guide and local guide. Way more fun than I ever imagined. Can't stop raving about it!”
