Amazing experience! My husband Douglas and I just came back from a 10 days customized guided tour to Morocco organized by Emily from Guided Spain. It was an amazing trip. Our driver Youssef met us at the Casablanca Airport and he quickly became our guide, security guard and guardian angel! When I got sick he got me medicine and he always found the best toilets when we were on the road. Also, ice cream! We feel that we got the authentic Morocco experience with the riads (hotels) that Emily chose for us and the guides in the different cities we visited. The Merzouga Luxury Desert Camp was totally amazing as well as the visit with the Nomads,and the medinas. This is our second trip with Emily and as the first one, it was excellent. Our next one will be Portugal!

Trencadis Mosaic Workshop

In the Trencadis Workshop, kids will be introduced to the fascinating world of mosaic art. With a history dating back over 5000 years, a mosaic is a unique form of “stone painting” that involves breaking ceramic tiles or other materials into small pieces and arranging them to form a pattern or image.

Antoni Gaudi, a famous Catalan architect, used this technique in a new and innovative way, giving his buildings colorful and artistic facades. In the workshop, kids will have the opportunity to learn about Gaudi’s work and the trencadís technique he popularized.

Under the guidance of their private teacher, kids will be shown how to use glass and enameled pottery to create their own mosaic masterpieces. They will have the chance to experiment with different colors and patterns, and their teacher will provide assistance and support throughout the process.

At the end of the workshop, kids will have their own unique piece of mosaic art to take home and display proudly.


Overnight in Barcelona

Excellent Individualized Tour Company for People who do not want to go on Package Tours. I used Emily to arrange a tour of Southern Spain in January, 2020 for 4 people. It turned out to be great. What I do not like is being shepherded around to cheesy tourist sites and waiting in lines of tourists. Emily arranged for very competent and efficient drivers, fantastic guides, very good hotels and even recommended restaurants for each location. The best thing about using Emily is that when she arranged for (at my request) wine tastings, olive oil tastings, a flamenco show is that all of them were authentic and interesting and none of them were contrived or cheesy. While on the trip, she checked in and made sure everything went smoothly. When we went to the Alhambra or other ticketed sites, we always got to skip the line due to Emily. There was one overall price per person (depends on double/single room) that I felt was very fair for the level of service provided.
