Peppermint Arches

The highlight for me was going to the restaurant you picked for us in Cadaqués. Wow, what a treat! Mercedes is an incredible guide. As I reviewed some Rick Steves videos, I noticed that your guides Jesús, and Mercedes featured in them! I’m so glad we had your company to get us to the airport or we’d be standing in Plaza Catalunya waiting to board a bus to the airport after wheeling all our luggage there from the hotel. We’re feeling bad for others but thankful for your excellent planning and the 24/7 support by Inma and Mercedes! Thanks again and we hope to return to do Andalucia and or Portugal soon!”

Best of Spain & Portugal

“I urge everyone who values unforgettable vacations to contact Magical Spain and talk to Dan or Rachel.

Beyond the personalized planning and fine 24-7 tour support, we loved the quality and care of the licensed guides, the delicious tapas, the exotic ambiance of Seville and Granada, Madrid’s majesty and art, medieval Toledo, and meeting the olive oil estate owners, artist, chef & winemaker.”

R. Mathews, wife & friends (Northern Virginia)



“Our private Spain guided trip was superb and stress-free, thanks for the customization.. we loved the Seville and Granada walking tours, but also the historic hilltowns, medieval castles, wine tasting with the winemaker,  tapas on the plazas, flamenco guitar…great insight and memories!”

R. Fergerson (NYC)



“Outstanding, seamless planning with a very personalized itinerary executed perfectly…..

In Spain, we felt like VIPs as we met the winemakers in La Rioja and Ribera del Duero, the chefs, the village mayor  and flamenco dancer in Sevilla! The unique experiences and memories beat that of 4 or 5 cruises.  We will be back to do Andalucia or Portugal in a few years”
