This holiday exceeded my expectations in every respect. Paul, Vicki and Andy were so friendly and helpful and did all they could to ensure a fantastic holiday. Wonderful food, great hospitality, fabulous locations and an inspiring tutor. I cannot wait to return.

Had a fabulous stay in Torrox. The course provider was fantastic, extremely well organised, comfortable accommodation, helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the course tuition, great tutor and learned lots. Painted in the most beautiful locations. Most definitely hope to return.

Our hosts, Paul and Victoria provided very well for everyone. Klaus Hinkel, our art tutor, made water colour painting very interesting. I came away with a totally different appreciation of what watercolour painting can be and will continue exploring this art form. Beautiful location!

The staff were excellent and went above and beyond to help generally and deal with an unexpected two days of torrential rain. The hotel was comfortable and the included breakfast more than adequate. Pick-ups and drop offs were on time.

The whole week was fantastic. Our whole group was super and the activities and locations really helped our learning and helped to gel the group. Paul and Vicki and their team were terrific and we were really well looked after. The tuition by Klaus Henkel was excellent and my progress was evident.

My ONLY disappointment was with the tutor. In my opinion, he did not give equal attention to all students. I felt that his attitude was that he was being paid for being there so he could do as he pleased.

Reply from Supplier: Thank you for your feedback. We have received some great feedback about Klaus so are saddened to hear yours but appreciate it nevertheless and will be sure to pass it on. We are pleased that you enjoyed the holiday anyway - The GoLearnTo team

Would have been useful to get a detailed list of paints/brushes quality of paper before travelling

Reply from Supplier: Thanks for the useful feedback. Hosts usually get in touch prior to arrivals so we will pass this feedback on. Glad to see you had a great time though! The GoLearnTo Team

D Williams, Wrexham, UK - Sep 2016

Photography holiday

I booked this holiday as I wanted to improve my photography (from beginner) whilst having a holiday at the same time. The tuition was excellent, although informal, and has enabled me to move from auto to manual camera settings. I now always use manual settings. The locations we visited were interesting and allowed lots of time for practise with feedback provided at the end of the day. Overall the meals were excellent and the group evening meal in various outdoor restaurants added to the great holiday atmosphere with the six other photographers on the holiday. For a first time, the learning experience was excellent but I'm not sure that I would gain as much from a return holiday, although many of the other photographers had returned for a second and third time.

P Pressdee, lechlade on Thames, United Kingdom - Jun 2016

I did not have tuition because it was pastel and I had booked watercolour/acrylics. The rest of the holiday was excellent

The Painting course was very well organised. Paul and Vicki were fantastic. Could not fault a thing, location, food and accommodation were wonderful. I would recommend this Painting course without hesitation.

F McLeod , Glasgow, Scotland - Sep 2015

Painting holiday

It was a very well organised, yet relaxed week, from the moment we arrived we were all made to feel so welcome. The tutor was super, I have many new techniques up my sleeve now. Would definitely recommend. Highlights....too many to mention but the visit to 'the lost village' was very special...

E Rimmer, Eynsford, UK - Sep 2015

This was my first experience of a holiday including an art course and it proved to be just the sort of thing that I enjoy.The tuition was good and although I was on my own the other members on the course were good fun and the whole week was most enjoyable.

A very pleasant break. Learned much about both the technology of my camera and how to use it effectively during the locations shoots

M Falcon, Bath, UK - Jun 2014

Photography holiday

This was a really enjoyable holiday, which was completely made by Paul & Victoria who run the company. They were very friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The trip was well organised, the photographic locations interesting and the food & company were fantastic.

M McInnes , Banbury, UK - Jun 2014

Photography holiday

The tuition was not structured and although I was emailed the week before by the tutor to see what I wanted to cover areas that I specified were not covered until I asked and then only briefly. The house accommodation I felt was poor and not at all comfortable. The owners Vicky and Paul were very helpful and friendly and worked hard to make the holiday enjoyable. I would not return because of the standard of tuition and the accommodation.

J Grinsted, Faringdon, England - Jan 2014

Painting holiday

Overall his was a lovely holiday. As a late booker I didn't get a few emails about meeting at the airport or all the painting stuff I should have taken. but a steely British attitude do not panic and a prompt response by phone and visit to some resort shops sorted all that out quickly. The hosts Gill and Dave were wonderfully helpful and friendly and Gill and Ollie have to be congratulated again on their wonderful cooking. The fellow painters were very friendly and we all got on very comfortably. Anna. the tutor was inspirational, supportive and fun.

J Curant, Wheathampstead, UK - Sep 2013

Painting holiday

A terrific experience and excellent value for money. The meals were really good throughout and the painting venues were varied and beautiful. Very good tuition and friendly staff. We all had a great time. Couldn't fault it. A really Spanish experience. Can't wait to book up the next one.

S Sole, Epping, UK - Jul 2012

The Tutor was clearly a good and techincal photograper but had no experience of teaching in a structured way

Reply from Supplier: Thank you very much for your feedback. David bases his teaching approach on an individual basis, and therefore the structure and delivery of his lessons may vary from person to person. I am sorry if you felt his teaching method was not suitable for you, and this therefore detracted from the overall enjoyment of your holiday.

A bit too hot for me on a couple of days ,but you can`t alter the weather!

D Pizzicotti, London, UK - Jun 2012

Really enjoyed whole experience. Would go back if more individual timetable or different locations

C Gowens, St Albans, UK - May 2012

Photography holiday

Holiday was quite disorganised and accommodation was at top of 78 steps plus steep incline! I was not unhappy with my accommodation, I merely found that climbing all those steps up to 3 times a day a bit tedious. I had to share a house with a man I'd never met - a bit odd, although I was personally not bothered by it. The breakfast was not provided as described - only a welcome pack, but they did give an amazon voucher as a refund and promise to change details. The trip was generally very enjoyable, if a bit tiring, and the food and the company were excellent.

Reply from Supplier: Thanks for your comments, to clarify a couple of things; Torrox is a hillside village and we do ask clients to specify if they have any mobility problems so that we can allocate suitable housing. Although all customers have their own private bedroom and bathroom, sometimes these rooms are in shared gender houses. Breakfast is included, but is a self-service pack that is left in your kitchen for you each day. I am glad you enjoyed the trip overall.

Johns tuition was superb, and the places he brought us too were excellent as well. He was very helpful and accomodating throughout the holiday

C Pettinger, Newcastle upon Tyne, England - Jul 2011

I had never painted before and found this a wonderful and relaxing experience. Would recommend to anyone.

S Giles, Nottingham, England - Sep 2011

Photography holiday

Nice holiday, very good meals and friendly people. No breakfasts were provided and no evening meal on the Thursday when according to your site all meals were included except on rest day

Reply from Supplier: Sorry for any confusion here, the houses have breakfast packs included, so although not served to you, breakfast is provided in a pack each day of bread, jam, fruit, cereal, tea and coffee and so on so you can make your own breakfast in the kitchen of the accommodation. Often if the group visit a restaurant to enjoy a typical 4 course andalucia meal (such as on Thursday), a large evening meal is not served, but tapas was provided instead.

Brilliant week. Beautiful weather, lovely staff & participants and lots & lots of photos!

I also want to add that the customer service from GoLearnTo was fantastic. Really helpful and responsive. PS this box could be bigger!

C Strong, London, UK - Oct 2010

Painting holiday

The course was good, and the artist very encouraging, providing tips on both artistic and technical aspects of painting. The food and accommodation was good, although some of the admin/organisation of the schedule could have been improved.

O OConnell, Clonlara, Ireland - Sep 2010

Painting holiday

Picnic on beach needs to be in cooler box. Food was in sun too long. Houses need locks on bedroom doors and a safe to secure valuables such as passports etc. Tuition was very good but maximum on course should be limited to 8. Staff were fantastic and very welcoming. Transportation was excellent

Reply from Supplier: Thanks very much for your helpful feedback, comments have been taken on board for the future.
