When we organise custom trips in Spain for clients from the US, Canada or Australia, we often suggest and frequently get asked about popping over the border to see Gibraltar or making a daytrip to Tangiers. Both destinations, which couldn’t be more different, can be quite easily included in a Southern Spain itinerary and make excellent add-ons especially in the company of one of Totally Spain’s local expert guides who will make sure you get the essence of the place and its people in just a few hours.
While nobody loves a cold craft beer or a glass of Rioja or cava more than we do, we love how easy it is to socialise in Spain without drinking alcohol. Here are some of low-alcohol or no-alcohol drinks that are popular in Spain when you need to be 100% alert.
Like the sound of a gastronomy tour but not sure what it involves? We outline one of our tours in Seville to give you a sense of what actually happens and answer some of the queries we receive from our clients before they embark on their first foodie tour.
Eating out is a major part of any holiday and here in Spain we have amazing restaurants to suit every budget. Today we’re going to focus on the set-price meal in Spain known as the ‘menu-del-dia’ which is usually served at lunchtime from Monday to Friday. As you know, we are a Spain-based travel agent and specialist in custom travel to Spain since 2000, so we’ve had our fair share of delicious meals here. Believe us when we say that the ‘menu-del-dia’ offers incredible value for money and you’d be hard pushed to find anywhere in Europe that offers the same quality and choice at the price with wine included.
Our clients have been known to “splash out” on certain things when travelling in Spain but equally love finding a bargain or getting a bit more bang for their buck. We thought we’d put together a guide to Savvy Savings in Spain to make it easy for everybody to find great value for money when on holidays here.
Totally Spain has been planning custom trips around Northern Spain since we started out in the year 2000. We set up our business from Vitoria in the Basque Country and were soon bowled over by the interest in this beautiful yet quite unknown part of Spain. Today we are still based in Northern Spain – living and working in Cantabria. Because we plan trips for all of Spain and Portugal we often don’t get to write enough about this superb region – it’s been ages since we posted What to See in Northern Spain. So here is our shiny new Insider Guide on What to See and Do in Northern Spain.
