Client feedback

There are many feedbacks here but rather than choose a small selection, we decided to let rip with many from the last few years. Please note that the names of our guides and specialist collaborators are often deliberately abbreviated. We save them especially for those who book through Madrid & Beyond!

    Hi Carla,

    The planning done between you made everything easy and enjoyable for the 11 days traveling through Spain. Thank you for attention while "in country”.

    It was a terrific trip and we bring home wonderful memories of the sights and sounds, foods and friends of Spain.

    Dear Nigel and Carla –

    We are still in the afterglow from our wonderful holiday to Spain. We had a phenomenal time and it occurred to me that we hadn’t dropped you a note thanking you for putting together a fantastic itinerary. The whole trip went off without a hitch.

    With many thanks (and a promise for future business).

    We’ve returned and had a great time! My son was a great tour guide in Madrid and NB (in Barcelona) was amazing. My not easily impressed daughter commented that NB was the “perfect” tour guide. The hotels at both places were terrific…

    I could go on and on, but it was truly food and wine heaven. Thanks again for all... Read more

    Hello Carla,

    Our trip to Spain was fabulous and just wetted our appetite to see more of Spain. The combination of guided tours and time to explore on our own was well balanced. The tours helped to orient us so that we had a better idea of what we wanted more of. All three of the tours and tour guides (RC, JL and NB) were great, and charming. The guides... Read more

    Hi Clara,

    Thank you for arranging a wonderful time on the Camino. Aner was a wonderful guide whose company we enjoyed tremendously.

    Our daughters also loved the rural hotel where all the spring lambs and other animals enchanted them. Galicia is gorgeous at this time of year! We could have spent a little more time walking, but appreciated that we can... Read more

    Hi Carla,

    … we had a wonderful time! We loved everywhere we stayed, particularly Seville and had a great time in Tarifa. The weather was stunning throughout the trip - warm and sunny every day but not too hot. Our guides in each place were exceptional and we really enjoyed being with them and learning so much. JH was wonderful on our last... Read more

    Hey Carla,

    We loved both hotels… Special accolades to four of your tour guides: MA for the art tour in Madrid, GR who knows everything about Toledo, and CT and NB who gave us a great introduction to Barcelona.

    Thank you so much for organizing our trip to Spain: it was magical! We loved the accommodations, and your guides were terrific: very... Read more
