We think Spain’s diversity is its greatest asset
To celebrate this we plan to make sure your experience visiting our country is as thorough as possible. We want you to feel the different Iberian ways of life. Because we strongly believe travelling requires responsibility, we support local communities, eat in local restaurants, buy in small family shops and use public transportation systems whenever we can. Of course, we also want to show you the highlights but we’re confident that the unexpected surprises and the little spots that don’t make the brochures, will make your trip truly memorable.
Spain’s population is concentrated in the main cities, mostly in Madrid and Barcelona but half the country is rather empty and quiet and for that the more interesting. Every city, village, mountain, monument or corner of Spain you visit is unique. Therefore they demand bespoke experience. We will help you make it possible. With over a decade of experience in guiding, both in Germany and Spain, we are experts in putting together custom itineraries for all kinds of travellers.
At Spain Private Guides we make sure you are accompanied by the best possible ambassadors.
We only work with expert licensed guides with years of experience and knowledge. As a result, our collaborators enjoy conversation, exchange ideas, and adapt to each group rather than regurgitating scripts! Our aim is that your guide and your tour will help you feel “at home” in Spain.
Because a tour is more than sites, names, and dates.
It is about the stories of a city, the flavours, sounds, smells, and the people whose actions breathe this into life. It is a conversation about a place and its ideas, an opportunity to share the lived experience of the modern culture framed and explained by learning about its history.
Travel for its own sake is a fairly recent development. Before the middle of the last century, few people travelled outside their home towns. Travelling to the next town was a great adventure! Visiting another country was for the impossibly wealthy and/or eccentric. Now and especially post-Covid we aim to step back from what the travel and tourism industry has become. There are more people travelling and more choices are available. At Spain Private Guides we believe in slow tourism, in tasting the real life of a place by supporting local business and rushing less but feeling more. Slowly, with an experienced and passionate guide, we want to bring you into the vast diversity and cultural wealth of Spain.
just like a local!
Finally, we want to encourage a kind of tourism that respects all that this spectacular environment has to offer. A kind of tourism that helps the local economy to flourish, ensuring Spain will be enjoyed by many future generations — locals and travellers. We promote carefully curated tours to feature local gems that other tours either drive past or don’t get anywhere near. Since we hope that our customers experience a sense of the community and see how their visit also benefits locally owned businesses and people.
We want to offer an opportunity to enjoy the natural rhythm of the place itself like locals do!
Our paths crossed as we are both lucky to be part of an exclusive association of private guides, spread across Europe. Assembled to build and strengthen a network of like-minded individuals during this unpredictable time for the travel industry.
We found we share common ground in our understanding of business and deep love and passion for guiding. In addition to being ambassadors for our culture and countries. Finally, above anything else, our willingness to channel knowledge and experience into an exclusive personalised service.
