"I found the trip to Spain to be a great combination of site-seeing, CME and amazing gourmet meals and wines selected by an internationally famous chef. We visited several famous vineyards and were able to sample their wines. The visit to an ophthalmological institute was especially memorable, we watched lens surgery in close up. The visit was very well organized with time to explore cities on our own, as well as tours of architectural wonders. I strongly recommend this tour as a great experience"

Dr. John Cocker, Stouffville, On. - Spain Gourmet, 2015


“I am in withdrawal, eating salad.  Good for the body, not as good for the soul as the food last week! A good balance of tour/group activity and personal time. And the tour was enhanced by a wonderfully interesting group  of participants! We felt truly blessed to enjoy Spain with all of you.

Dr. Wendy Reimer, Breslau, On. – Spain Gourmet, 2016
