Joseph Bosnich - Tour of Morocco and Andalucia

Hi Nicola. I'm home at long last after my wonderful adventure.
Nicola,I don't know how to thank you enough for what you did for me.My time in Andalucia and Morocco was probably the highlights of my life. All of your organisation in terms of accommodation,travel arrangements and information was absolutely impeccable and made my time there so much more enjoyable. In Morocco the driver/guide,Mustapha was superb and I couldn't have asked for someone better. He was superb and we got on extremely well.

When I get my head  above water I intend to get onto Trip Adviser and write  an absolutely glowing review about you at Lemon Valley.

I feel so indebted to you.

My fondest regards,best wishes and sincerest thanks

I took this tour with Lemon Valley in 2009 and simply had to come back and do it all again! The hotels chosen are excellent for both their amenities & locations. I love having all the bookings made for us, the hotels, trains, flamenco Alhambra & guided tours and yet at the same time being independent. Thank you for making the trip so memorable once again




About Lemon Valley Holidays



Lemon Valley Holidays was created in 2005 out of a passion for Andalucía where we lived and worked for 12 years. We wanted to help the more curious traveller explore the historical, cultural and rural areas of this beautiful and dramatic part of Spain.


At the end of their holiday, we wanted our clients to feel like they had a more "authentic" experience, enhanced by perfectly located and welcoming hotels, meeting up with knowledgeable and friendly local guides and using our insider knowledge of the best places to visit to get a true taste of the "real" Andalucía.


That is where it began almost 10 years ago and over time, we have very slowly expanded our destination expertise to include the rest of Spain, Morocco and finally in 2013 Portugal. It has taken all this time to get to know these places and build up the knowledge and personal contacts in each new area – there are no plans at present to go any further; now done, these three fascinating countries will keep us all busy for a long time!.


We are a small, family run business that deals personally with each client and are available at any time for any queries or questions you have whether you are in the planning stages, are about to leave for your trip or are already on your holiday. We cater for all budgets and any length of trip - a special holiday does not need to break the bank, especially when you avoid the tourist traps and know where to find the real value for your money.


We all know the joy of finding a gem of a family owned hotel tucked away in a side street or a cosy local restaurant where the food and the wine is beaten only by the charm and hospitality of the host; its moments like these that create long lasting memories and we delight that it is our job to create happy memories like this for people from all over the world!


Where possible we work with small, privately owned hotels and over the years we have built up an excellent reputation and working relationship with all of our trusted hotels and are proud to say that Lemon Valley clients are welcomed as expected guests. We do also work with large, luxurious hotels but choose those that have a focus on maintaining a feeling of intimacy and offer an equal level of personal attention as the smaller hotels.


Our in-depth local and specialized knowledge has proved invaluable to our clients who know they want to see the main sights but also the many other hidden, less touristy areas of a city of country but know that this can take months of planning and wading through heaps of information in books or on the internet.


We do not offer to our clients' every possible type of activity, guided tour or excursion that could be taken, but again include in our holidays only those that we know are good, worthwhile and where the providers have shown us and our clients the care, service and professionalism that you deserve and we expect.

Travelling independently is becoming very popular as it fits more conveniently with people's busy lives and varied interests, and as one client recently said about an organized large group tour they had taken in the past "it seems like you are watching a movie of your holiday rather than actually being there yourself".


On our independent holidays, we can ensure you do not waste any of your precious holiday time and help you to relax knowing that all the essential elements have been booked in advance whilst you are free to explore and get the most out of your stay. A comment that comes up time after time from our clients is that the arrangements of the holiday "worked like clockwork" – this is because we plan so carefully but also because we stick to a relatively small area, enabling us to offer you the benefits of our in-depth knowledge and experience.


We pride ourselves on the feedback we get from customers and wait expectantly to hear how a trip went when people return home; what's more, many clients do not even want to wait until they get home and keep in touch as they travel around; just to let us know all is well and they are having a wonderful holiday or telling us of new great experiences each day.


You can read a large selection of testimonials if you follow this link and we have many clients from all corners of the globe who are happy to act as references if required.


We hope that you will come and visit us soon and if you have any questions or would like some more information about any area or aspect of Spain, Portugal or Morocco please do not hesitate to contact us.


Warm regards,
Nicola Wright
