OUR HAPPY CLIENTS SAY
Our only problem is that now we have grown so accustomed to using Madrid & Beyond with your expertise and personal touch, and we do not know if any other agency will ever be able to live up to our expectations.
Allison and Alton Ashy
Thank you again for everything that you did to make our trip so special. It truly was a trip of a lifetime. Everything was perfect. Your care putting the trip together for us was THE key to such a successful experience for all of us. It is hard to point out all of the highlights because there were so many perfect moments.
Every tour agency would do well to be trained by you—you are customer service oriented to a fault, responsive and flexible, detail oriented, thorough, genuinely invested in our enjoyment of our trip, and unfailingly nice.
Carrie Irvin and family

Raj and Laura John
This Spain travel agency is a first rate travel company, they listened to my requests and interests and prepared a travel itinerary that was perfect. My agent communicated with me numerous times before and during our holiday to make everything run smoothly, I could not have achieved this wonderful trip without her help.

We will definitely be contacting you about some future trips.
Wendy and Steve via Absolute Travel
We really appreciated the personal touches you took for us. Receiving chocolate strawberries and cava upon arrival to our room in Sevilla was very special! We also appreciate the call you made to us on our first night and that made us feel special. We are both very happy with the level of service we received during the entire process. I will definitely recommend Madrid & Beyond to any friends and family that are interested in visiting Spain.

I would highly recommend Madrid & Beyond, and you specifically! You were always very helpful and prompt in replying to my questions. You really worked hard to find something that would fit within our budget, and allow us to benefit from your travel agency’s insider’s recommendations and knowledge of Spain. I would happily recommend you to my friends traveling to Spain.
You simplified my life considerably and took the pressure of doing the trip off my hands. Setting up the tours and getting us the hotels in the best locations was the biggest help…I felt that you provided great value for the services performed. We will have fond memories of this trip for the rest of our lives. Thank you again for all of your assistance. I think we will be doing Spain again sometime soon and we will be sure to call you when we do.
Many thanks, once again, for a great trip! We had a wonderful time from the moment we took off, to the moment we arrived back from Spain. The accomodations, dining, and stops we selected and guides we had, with the help from Madrid and Beyond met our expectations and then some.
