Spain-Morocco-Portugal: Our family just returned from a memorable trip to Spain, Morocco and Portugal - organized by Emily at Guided Spain Tours. I must say that I asked Emily to fill our days with enough activities to keep my active husband, daughter and her boyfriend busy but I wanted no stress or family fighting in traveling from place to place. Emily totally delivered! She arranged drivers to and from airports, trains and even a ferry plus had daily activities or day trips for us from cooking classes, wine tastings, food tours, sailing excursions, Fado concert, Flamenco show to full day tours visiting castles, cathedrals, and beautiful cities. She even coordinated an extended trip to Morocco for us. Everything went smoothly, we had wonderful drivers and guides, and we all had a great time! I appreciated that Emily stayed in daily contact to ensure everything was going smoothly. I highly recommend Emily and Guided Spain Tours!

The tour begins as your private guide escorts you into the heart of the Medina, the city’s old town and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Medina is a vibrant labyrinth of narrow alleys teeming with life and color. As you navigate the bustling souks, your guide will share stories about the city’s centuries-old crafts and trades.

Marvel at the intricate woodwork, vivid ceramics, beautiful textiles, and delightful spices that fill every corner. It’s a sensory overload of sights, sounds, and scents, presenting the perfect opportunity to purchase some unique Moroccan souvenirs.

Next, we head to the Koutoubia Mosque, the largest in Marrakesh and a notable symbol of the city.

While non-Muslims are not allowed inside, the stunning exterior offers a glimpse into Moroccan architecture, with its salmon-colored walls and towering minaret. Your guide will shed light on its history and the importance of Islam in Moroccan culture.

From there, we journey to the Bahia Palace, a masterpiece of Moroccan architecture. As you traverse its stunning courtyards and elegant gardens, your guide will explain the palace’s history and significance.

The elaborate tile work carved wooden ceilings, and lush gardens are a testament to the zenith of Moroccan craftsmanship.

Our 15-day Southern Spain tour - Amazing! It's so hard to come back to reality after experiencing a Guided Spain Tour! Emily arranged a tour for my husband and myself for cities in Southern Spain (Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Jerez de la Frontera, the White Villages and Ronda, Malaga, hiking the Caminito del Rey, and Granada). In addition, we traveled one day to Tangiers, Morocco and Gibraltar, then spending our last 4 days in Barcelona and visiting surrounding cities. It was an amazing trip, which provided professional, private drivers and fantastic, well-informed guides for all of the cities and activities. In addition, Emily was constantly in touch with us during the entire trip to make sure everything was going well. We could go on and on about all of the very special experiences we had, and will definitely use Guided Spain Tours for other trips in Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Our only wish is that Emily would also do tours worldwide!

Marvel at the intricate decorations and grand mausoleums as your guide tells the fascinating history of the Saadian dynasty.

Afterward, we seek tranquility in the Jardin Majorelle, a beautiful oasis in the city’s heart.
