"Thank you for the best week in 30 years that Jim and I have had as far as a vacation. You did everything you promised...plus more! We would be happy to travel with you again in the future." Jim & Susan Amis

"Dear Ryan, Thanks so much for a most memorable trip to Pamplona.  Your team was fabulous – always cheerful, always enthusiastic.  As of course were you! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to experience both the Opening Ceremony and Running with the Bulls – I’ll never forget those days.  And the VIP dinner was wonderful – exquisite food and I loved being able to watch the fireworks. When I returned home...I told everyone about Spyns – several people wrote down the information for next year." Jean Hester

"Just wanted to tell you what a great time we had in Pamplona, even for a couple of Canadians! Great execution from all of your staff." Carter Levey

"We want to thank you for the wonderful way you have planned your tours.  While the Running of the Bulls is certainly the centrepiece, for us the bullfight and dinner after were particularly memorable highlights.  We owe your entire staff thanks and hope all goes well for all of you in the future." Dale & Margie Brandon

"Spyns was a phenomenal experience!  I highly recommend Ryan and his team for anyone interested in seeing/living through Pamplona without the headache of actually having to coordinate it yourself.  A top-notch trip and one that will be remembered forever!" Kristen Carlson

"I just want to let you know how much fun you made our Pamplona trip. I had no idea what to expect and you exceeded every expectation I had. Your staff was amazing and they were on top of everything!  You are great at what you do and I wish you and Spyns continued success!" Marcia Hock & Bill Emerick

"Jeanne and I would like to thank you and your great staff for a wonderful and memorable trip to Pamplona. The "personal touch" you guys showed was a step above other tours. Running with the bulls is an experience I will never forget and it probably would not have happened if I did not take your tour (I definitely would have stood in the wrong spot). SPYNS will be highly recommended and described as the only way to go." Brandon & Jeanne Gray

"You're terrific to have arranged all this. Already I miss our band of adventurers and hope we can get together again in 2011. Thank you so much." Kieran Kramer

"We could not have done it without you. It was great having you tailor something for our specific and limited needs for a wonderful three days in Pamplona. Your guides were kind, interesting and obviously love what they do. You provided awesome service and were worth every penny." Anne Winner & Family

"The trip was very well executed from beginning to end. We had detailed information prior to departure, were picked up by a cheerful Spyns employee at the train station and given a detailed bike tour of Pamplona prior to the crowds arriving. We were shown where each event would be held and we walked the route of the bull run so we could see the tiny streets and all the tight corners and turns. In the Rioja region, we experienced historic wineries with incredible meals and good wine as well as heart pounding bike rides, which made the pitchers of sangria that awaited us at the end even tastier. Ryan was a perfect host and made sure all events went according to plan and we could just sit back and enjoy the experience." Liz Bayless

"Great time. Give my thanks to all." Craig Glick & Family

"It was so great planning a trip where one deals directly with the owner! It felt more like traveling with a good friend. Ryan's great personality, personal knowledge of the area, and unending customer service are a hard combination to beat! We would definitely recommend a SPYNS tour to anyone." Larry & Marie Cobado

"Thanks so much for everything. I had a great time - hesitated for about 2 seconds coming alone but I knew I'd have fun regardless. You guys did a great job herding the cattle. It's hard work and the whole group noticed it." Michelle Smer

"We had a wonderful trip with Spyns. I have been on a number of group tours and this one was special. Magical." Bruce & Barb Galloway

"Pamplona is a fantastic destination. The trip is special thanks to your customer service and personal involvement. The Christmas Day phone call, the post card in March and your kind response to our new red shoes is what made this whole experience unforgettable. If we ever have the chance, we will travel with you again." John & Amy DeDea

"This was an excellent, magnificent experience. I will recommend Spyns to the world. This was made most enjoyable by your expertise and professionalism. Your arrangements and personal touch were beyond expectations. We would travel with you anywhere." The Henne Family

"Thanks for going the extra mile...It's amazing that 'grown-ups' rely so heavily on you to point the way and fill in the gaps. You do it well & with style. Thanks." Dave Winterbottom

"So much fun and you are the dream guides! Thanks for your terrific planning, positive attitude and for being so open-minded." Debra Frati & Jerry Brunner

"The trip and experience was everything that I had anticipated! For decades I had wanted to participate in the running of the bulls. Everything was fantastic." Al Kvaal

"You know safety was a concern of mine and I never felt uncomfortable at any time. Relying on your knowledge, guidance, planning and PATIENCE was worth every penny. I can 't imagine experiencing and conquering Pamplona in any other way. I will definitely plan another Spyns trip." Denise Pullum

"An amazing experience. Thanks for being a guide without being a guide. As I am sure you can tell by now, I am not a tour person, which is why I went with Spyns. I remember when I first spoke with you and you said, "We're not a 'follow the guide with the red flag' type company. That is what sold me. Thanks." Lisa Cooper

"Thanks for the best trip ever! Spyns definitely went the "extra mile" to make sure we had everything we needed. I'd be happy to drive the Spyns van anytime." Jim Miller
