We all know Milan is different to Rome and Hamburg is different to Munich – but lots of first-time travellers to Spain don’t realise how different Barcelona is to Seville and San Sebastian to Madrid. We’ve been designing itineraries around Spain and Portugal for two decades and many of these trips showcase the diversity in landscape, climate, history, culture, lifestyle and cuisine. Here’s a sense of what to expect as you travel around Spain from North to South and East to West. And as always, Totally Spain is here to assist with your custom Spain tour just as we have done for thousands of travellers like you since 2000.
You’ve booked your flights and the itinerary has been set but what else do you need to check before you travel? Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been producing customised trips to Spain and Portugal for 17 years and thought we’d share this handy travel checklist for Spain & Portugal highlighting some of the most important things to do before leaving home.
At Totally Spain we believe there is a huge benefit to hiring private guides and private drivers when travelling in Spain and Portugal. You’ll feel safe and immersed in the destination after just a few hours with a local guide or driver, and you’ll gather a lot of invaluable information also. We’ve been growing our network of professional guides and drivers in Spain & Portugal since we started back in 2000, and we can honestly say we have the best in the business. Here’s what makes them so worthwhile!
PLEASE NOTE that we can only schedule our expert private drivers and guides for travellers booked on a Totally Spain custom trip. We do not book these services separately.
Not only does food and drink taste amazingly good in Spain but it looks so enticing too! Gastronomic traditions are respected here and great thought often goes in to the appearance, ceremony and overall presentation of food. Catering professionals can spend years learning the necessary skills that we often take for granted so we thought we’d highlight just some of the artistry that we appreciate in Spanish Gastronomy and have been enjoying along with our clients since we set up Totally Spain in the year 2000.
You don’t need another blogpost about Spain’s typical or most famous dishes but we do want to share our checklist of 10 unmissable dishes in Spain and when, where and how to order them! You see we’ve been planning itineraries throughout Spain since the year 2000, so here at Totally Spain we’ve learned a lot about the Spanish dishes that people expect to eat but can’t find or even worse – don’t enjoy. And we’ve added in a few dishes that our clients have enjoyed eating but wouldn’t have ordered without a tip-off from us.
Great weather, amazing beaches, superb historic and luxury hotels at great prices, great transport connections, sumptuous formal dining in world acclaimed restaurants plus mouth-wateringly good tapas prepared in the tiniest of bars – Spain really is a fantastic location for a honeymoon. At Totally Spain we’ve been planning customised trips including honeymoons around Spain & Portugal for the past two decades. Here are our 10 tips on planning a perfect honeymoon in the Spanish sunshine!
