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!

    Dear Jorge,

    We are back at home and wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all you did to make our 3 week trip to Spain a success. Beginning with the moment we exited the baggage claim area in Madrid after an all-night flight and saw the driver you provided, waiting to take us to our hotel, every one of the drivers and guides was on time,...

    Dear Carla,

    The trip… was wonderful. We had a great time saw wonderful things and enjoyed everything so very much. It really took a lot of the stress off of Bill to not have to worry about transfers and such. The sights were beautiful and the guides were just great. Everything was great. I will recommend you to everyone I know. Everything went smoothly and we just loved it.

    Thanks for everything.

  • Jack Lipson, US.

    Dear Jorge,

    You planned an outstanding trip for us which we enjoyed greatly.  We liked the hotels you selected… [especially] in Vejer, Lisbon, and San Sebastian.  The guides you chose were knowledgeable, informal and informative.  JA in Lisbon, JH in Granada, IS in Cordoba, and SA in Bilbao merit special mention. ...

    Hi Carla-

    We had a fantastic time! Everything worked like clockwork. The hotels were perfect in each place. The pintxos tour with Ñ was probably my favorite evening of the trip. What a lovely guy.

    Barcelona was spectacular - I just wish I had left us more time there.

    And Ibiza was much better than I expected… once we started... Read more

    Hello Jorge,

    We had a wonderful time in Spain and Portugal and we shall definitely go back for another visit. Thank you for organizing such an exciting trip for us.

    We enjoyed all of the tours, the guides all we extremely knowledgeable and personable. One in Granada even took us to his favorite tapas bar afterwards. By far the best however was the one in Barcelona, IG. He knew his information and was even willing to alter the... Read more

    Jackie, Amanda, and I enjoyed our trip very much.

    What I appreciated the most was having someone in Spain who spoke perfect English that could make my arrangements for me and give me advice when I needed. Being able to call you when we missed our train was also reassuring.

  • Roy & Elkin Families, US.


    We liked all our guides very much and found them to be very knowledgeable about their cities and the sites they showed us. They gave us good restaurant recommendations, too. We wished we had had a guide for the Alcazar in Sevilla. The audio tour was iffy and the signs left us wanting more. Both families bought a book to read... Read more
