Your site is very useful indeed. I am over for a week while our furniture is delivered to our finca up in Pinos. Next April all being well we hope to move into it. We love markets and festivals so your site is invaluable. Again, many thanks

Hi, its great to have this info at hand all the time. Well done to all at EuroTourGuide Spain. Many thanks.

By Harold on Friday, August 19th, 2016 at 16:40 via Email.

Thank you.  We have your Days Out and Costa Blanca South books.  We love them and have followed some of your town walks and are completing the coastal walk in sections. My husband Robert and I really like your enthusiasm; we even find that we are describing places and landscape features as you do in your videos.
 
We have a house in La Zenia  which we bought a year ago but live in UK most of the time.  It is great to consult your website when in UK to plan what we are going to do during our time here. We are going to the La Mata tomorrow for the celebration of the pig (pig fest).

We really do find your EuroTourGuide newsletter so helpful as we come and go into Costa Blanca, and also have random friends arriving from time to time so it's always great to have an up-to-date programme of all that's going on, and where. We plan our days based on your calendar, and have discovered some lovely places, restaurants, tips.

Your website is just great, I use it all the time when on holiday in Costa Calida to check what's on.

By John on Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 at 10:15 via Email.

We're regular visitors to the Costa Blanca each year and have been for a long time. We really enjoy your bulletins and updates, and have picked up on many useful links and ideas from you, so thank you very much!

Over the last winter, we have 'discovered' tapas trails, routes, and have spent many pleasant hours alone or with friends visiting some of the many participating bars and restaurants. Every one has been a different experience, and has helped us discover new bars and restaurants, as well as new eating experiences and new areas. Can't speak highly enough of the quality and generosity of the participating businesses, the food has varied from very good to outstanding, and we have never once been disappointed. We have almost without exception had extremely friendly and welcoming receptions wherever we have been.

So thank you again for promoting these 'routes'.

I have found the information on your website very useful and have had successful days out following your guides; one to Rojales and one to the gorgeous little village of Hondon de las Nieves and Novelda last year! My next planned excursion will be the almond blossom trails!! I have been coming to the Costa Blanca for about ten years and bought a property in Pinar de Campoverde last year. Although I know parts of the Costa Blanca quite well there are always new routes to explore, which is something I love to do, especially as I am a keen photographer!

Keep up the good work

Hello Mr and Mrs Hayes! I bought my retirement home in Punta Prima, but until I can retire next year I spend my time in cold upstate New York. Whenever I am not in Spain I find myself missing it and your videos help - to see all the familiar places that have become dear to my wife and I always makes me smile! So thank you again for the wonderful videos (especially fond of the coastal walk vid)! Friday is our Independence day celebration and I will raise a toast over the BBQ to the Hayes's! So Cheers to you! Wishing you both the best life has.

Just a short note, we have been coming to Spain  for a couple of years now and get your excellent whats on newsletter on line at home in Ireland always saying we must do that or that and never doing anything but this time we bought your book on the Costa Blanca South can't praise it enough the best money spent .....well done!

We asked at Torrevieja Tourist Office for suggestions of a scenic drive They only suggested Guadalest where we have already been several times. Luckily I did some searching myself and discovered your site - we did as you suggested and toured the Ricote Valley starting at Cieza and had a brilliant day out (it was my birthday so I wanted it to be a bit special) We then ended up at the Embalse and went on through Rebate and down into St Miguel de Salinas. What a memorable day out. Thank you so much for your suggestions, well done.

I have for a long time now found your site to be invaluable, very informative and interesting and we have been to some good events that we wouldn't have found if not for you.  All the best.

Just a big 'Thank You' for your excellent What's On bulletin. We spend around 3 months each winter on the Costa Blanca, and having had a link to your newsletter sent to us I have to say it provides really useful information, suggests excellent events, and great cultural experiences. Our holidays are enriched!
By Sue Kelly on Thursday November 7th, 2013 at 15:38 as a reply to the Weekly Bulletin
Thanks for the feature on Concentaina. The wife and I went up there today and had a superb day. So many things to see. Once again, thanks.

By Mike on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 at 08:54 as a reply to the Weekly Bulletin
Watched a couple of your guides on you tube. Love your passion for the area it really comes across. We are hoping to move to Spain soon and are coming to look at some properties in October and you really sold the Mazarron area to us. Keep up the good work.
By Guy Summerton on Thursday, August 10th, 2013 at 17:05 via Contact Us Form on the website
Many thanks for your email and the info you provide on EuroTourGuide. We went to Elda Saturday evening and the Alicante Medieval Market yesterday evening, both were superb and probably the best events we have ever seen in the region, neither of which we would have know about without your guide.
By Barry Hack on Monday, June 10th, 2013 at 13:05 via rely to email
I just wanted to drop you a quick 'congratulations & thank you' for your truly excellent site, podcast and events listings. I find it all so informative and useful. Keep up your excellent work.
By Steve Douglass on Thurs, May 23rd, 2013 at 14:21 as a reply to the Weekly Bulletin
I love this site and your podcasts! I come out regularly to visit my dad - you've already given us some great days out. So often in past years we've missed things - your podcast is just comprehensively brilliant! Thank you.
By Claire Lewis on Fri, April 19th, 2013 at 13:29 via Facebook Page
Looking forward to visiting soon & making very good if not essential use of your web site. Thanks & keep up the excellent work.

Just thought I'd say, your site is fantastic and the e-mails are great. We travel out 4 - 6 times per year and your weekly what's on bulletin emails and site has us always visiting new places. Thanks.
By Dean Cullen on Thur, March 7th, 2013 at 11:26 as a reply to the Weekly Bulletin.
Just found your videos and website and wanted to let you know I think you've done a great job. I have a small apartment near La Manga so I can relate to a few of your videos and there are others that give me inspiration on places to visit. I love the area of Spain where we have the apartment and I am always finding new places to go or things to do each time we visit. You're doing a great job promoting the area and living the dream in Spain. I hope everything continues to go well for you both
By Gavin Hammans on Wed, March 6th, 2013 via Get in Touch from on the Website.
Thank you for all the work you do in keeping us informed; your efforts are greatly appreciated!
By Robert & Florris Goulden on Fri, Feb 2nd, 2013 at 11:32 via Get in Touch from on the Website.
Have just come across your web site on torrevieja forum. Just want to compliment you both on the most detailed, attractive video on the costal walk. We have a property on campamor golf since 2000. We love it still and visit as often and for as long as possible. Just watching and listening to you have made us long to be there. Roll on our next visit! Every good wish in your endeavours. So professional and inviting.
By Annie White on Sun, Dec 9th, 2012 at 15:29 via Get in Touch from on the Website.
As we live in Cabo Roig your web site is full of things to do, which we need. It is also helpful for the "upcoming events" as we always read about them after the event and don't get to see them.
By Peter Minter on Sun, Nov 18th, 2012 at 09:07 via Get in Touch from on the Website.
Hola you two, just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job in bringing all this information to our attention. Great production, great site, keep it up and good luck to you both in your endeavours. Un saludo.

Hola, good site, recomended by a friend.
By Jan Hickman on Wed, Oct 24, 2012 at 22:10 via Get in Touch from on the Website.
We've lived here for 8 years and done some of these walks already but your video about the Orihuela Costa Coastal Walking path is very good. Well done.  We are very lucky indeed to live here.
By Sue Stabler on Tues, Oct 23, 2012 at 16:31 via Get in Touch form on the Website.
Just a quick "thank you" email regarding the Calendar of Events, first class as is your news letter/email in general. As frequent visitors to the Costa Blanca, we have tried may vehicles over the past 5 years to find out what's on & when in order to immerse ourselves in the local culture etc & maximise our stays, but with very limited results....until via a search engine we found your site. We consider you to be a "one stop shop" & you have significantly improved our & our friends visits to Costa Blanca this summer, please keep up the good work, it's priceless to us.
By Nigel Edwards on Sat, Sept 1, 2012 at 08:07 via Reply to EuroTourGuide Newsletter August 2012.
Hello to you both, I was 'just surfing' and your site came up. I have lived in Spain for ten years, to be precise in El Galan near La Zenia. I love this country and I love your refreshing, informative and friendly website. Keep up the good work! I have subscribed to your newsletter and I look forward to receiving information that I can pass on to the unfortunate family and relatives still living in England.
By Phil Soffe on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 18:11 via Get in Touch form on the Website.
Thanks sooo much for all the info on your website. it's very good and very detailed. keep up the great work!.
By Shelley Gleeson on Tues, Aug 21, 2012 at 14:22 via Facebook
Excellent web site. The calendar of events is so useful. We have a holiday home near Benijofar and couldn't find out about the current fiestas there but your guide has told us all we need to know. Many thanks.

I found your site by searching the net what a brilliant site never knew what was on our doorstop till now. We have booked to go out in October dying to do the cycle path how beautiful was that. You really have renewed my interest for going out to Spain again. Thank you so much for your site.

Looking for information and then voila, here it is, all on one site, and so easy to use. Thank you I will be telling everybody here about your site.

By Debbie Law on Sun, Dec 18, 2011 at 16:37
Having just registered with 'downloadmytravelguide' I would like to say what a wonderful site it is! My wife & I have lived in San Miguel de Salinas for nearly five years now, & continually complain about the lack of coverage events have in the local news, until after the event, so this web site is of great value. We are off to Alicante tomorrow for a look around the volvo yaght village.
By Dave Shrive on Wed, Nov 2, 2011 at 13:10
Congratulations on a fantastic website. I've got an apartment on La Manga strip so I am looking forwards to visiting all the places you have suggested.

Excellent - Love all your information and we have planned 3 different nights in different towns to celebrate with some visitors from the UK. I didn't know these things were on so you have been a great help.
By Ray Tudor on Sat, Oct 1, 2011 at 14:37

A very nice website full of very interesting information on various places on the Costa Blanca south some which I have visited. I especially like Guadalest and Alicante.

Calendar of events....What a great addition to an all ready super website.

These guides look fabulous - can't wait to arrive at the end of the week
By kayenne on Tue, Sept 20 2011 at 00:23
I have really enjoyed watching your video. We have an apparment on Quesada which we have had for the last 10yrs. I was starting to get very bored going out for visits (same old same old). Having watched your video it has renewed my interest, I never knew about the Rio Segura Cycle Path or much about the local area come to that. I now cant wait to go out this October to cycle the path and visit the area more fully. Thank you so much for showing us the routes. Best thing that happened finding this my travel guide web site. Well done will be telling all my friends about this site.
By patsymay on Sun, Aug 28 2011 at 11:48
Did this boat trip from Santiago de la Ribera to la Manga on Tuesday had a brilliant day. Parking easy, ferry on time, nice people to chat to. Santiago is well worth a visit an old fashioned seaside town. Will definately recomend it and will probably do it again later in the year. Thanks for all your info.
By Kevin Brunning on Thu, June 23 2011 at 12:08
Only just found this.!! What a fantastic web site. So informative. Thank you.
By Jacki Leach on Sun, Jun 12, 2011 at 12:05
The website is excellent, easy to navigate and informative.. well done. We live in south west France but have a ' hide away ' in Benijofar which we visit 4 times a year for 3 weeks at a time. Done the normal stuff... now looking for something extra..... Your website gives us good ideas so many thanks. Will pass your website to folks in the area we know.
By Malcolm and Els Scott on Wed, May 18, 2011 at 19:27
We visited one of your apartments last year and we forgot to buy your travelguide. Now, we see that you've decided to put your travel guide online. The site looks great! Lots of things to do and visit this summer...
By Wendy Van den Bergh on Tue, May 31, 2011 at 13:10
>Just watched your great video about the Orihuela Coastal walkway. We have walked along here many times when we come out and stay in our property at La Cinuelica, Punta Prima. Watching this video has given us a longing to come back asap. Your guide book is invaluable to our guests and indeed to ourselves, thank you for your signed copy! All the best, Mike and Loraine
By La Cinuelica on Sun, April 17 2011 at 11:33
Hey Mr. Hayes, this Hayes Guide to Santa Pola is really great. All our hidden places on your website. I hope our international guests will also enjoy this area in summer as in the wintertime. At last. Great the quality of the film. I hate to see all the little films with bad quality. You did it well, Mr. Hayes!
By Kurt Posadowsky on Sun, April 03 at 11:11
Just watched the film Hayes Guie to the orihuela Costa Costal Path and can't wait for June when we come over for 10 days! Looks like a lovely walk and we will definitely be taking in the views from Playa Flamenca to La Zenia and the other way to Punta Prima. Thank you for showing us the coastal walk we had already found this on the internet but watching the video has shown us how easy it will be not just for us but for our 3 year old son as we did have reservations as to whether he would be able to do the walk or not but after watching this we feel at ease. We will be able to visit different beaches, take in the views and stop off for a drink and a bite to eat. Once again thank you for an informative film.
By Jay_Jarvis on Thu, March 10 2011 at 22:47

Thank you for creating such an interesting and informative website. My husband and I moved to Callosa de Segura in October last year and are still slowly finding our way around. I am so pleased I stumbled across your website and I am sure it is going to be of great help to us in finding our feet and discovering the best places to go.
