“Travel to the major cities of Spain in the summer months can be very hot but most cities are deserted due to locals traveling to cooler temperatures.”
Ernest Hemingway once called Madrid the most Spanish of all cities, and this stunning European capital continues to wow people with its exotic charms. Extraordinarily sophisticated, modern-day Madrid is culturally rich and an absolute foodie's paradise. Artistic treasures, world-class shopping, and delicious cuisine lie around every corner. Madrid is one of my favorite cities, we can discuss hotels, eateries, sightseeing and more. I can arrange a vacation that is tailored to your unique needs. Call or email me today and let me share my expertise and insider secrets with you.

“The main meal of the day in Spain is midafternoon. When in Spain, eat like a Spaniard and fill up with lavish lunches.”
If you're headed to beautiful Spain, let me guide you toward an extraordinary trip. In college, I lived in Spain while studying at the University of Madrid, traveling all over the country for different reasons, pursuing interests like art, history, wine and culture through my travels. Spain has all of this and more - from the pilgrim town of Santiago de Compostela to the lovely white-washed coastal town of Mijas and the vibrant nightlife of Zaragoza. These are just a few of the experiences I can share with you - contact me today and let me help you create the experience of a lifetime.

“Make sure to purchase tickets for the Alhambra before you depart.”
Travel is my passion and I am passionate about Spain. I have been planning custom one of a kind trips since 2001. Since then, I have planned over 3,000 custom trips, from two persons to groups of 30, from babies to persons with severe disabilities and from strict museum goers to active adventure seekers. I am also familiar with many wineries, tapas bars and restaurants and have organized special wine tastings and foodie events all over the country. I have stayed at and visited countless Bed and Breakfasts, hotels, villas and paradors ranging from charming two and three star places to luxury properties in every region of Spain. On my most recent trip, I took a behind the scenes tour of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, visited a fishing village and learned historical tidbits and observed street-life while tapas bar hopping, toured the Alhambra and explored several off the beaten path white villages in Andalusia. I also stopped at an olive mill, to have a firsthand look at their production, storage and packaging process, took in a flamenco performance and explored Seville's food market with a local chef before heading back to her home where we prepared an authentic regional menu accompanied by Spanish wines. Whether you are a novice or experienced traveler, I can plan the perfect trip to Spain for you that mixes the top sites and museums with visits to Spain's hidden gems and behind the scenes experiences.
