"This Spain guide is amazing! Everything is so up to point and easy to navigate. Plus, I love all the little highlights, hidden gems, and cost breakdown. I especially love the language phrases and itinerary. The biggest problem I face while planning a trip is coming up with a proper itinerary, and this makes it more helpful! This guide is one of the most user friendly travel books for Spain I've ever laid eyes on and the design is super appealing to the eye.
