Naturally we specialize in the Valencia area, however we also have extensive experience in Spain tour routes and work often in Barcelona and Madrid as well.


        You get the best of both worlds: Perfectly bilingual contact, so no heavily- accented English or cultural misunerstandings, pre-tour or during your tour, but also perfectly local Spanish in understanding the customs, places, and sites to help you not just see Valencia, but meet Valencia and understand Spain.

        Total commitment to quality control and North-American style customer service, that only seasoned internationals can provide. Our commitment to answering any inquiries within 24 hours, providing our detailed itineraries, communicating to you any change and helping you with any general inquiriies about Spain, gives you the relaxation that there will be no extra fees or surprises on your special stay here.

        Just say NO to boredom! No matter which tour or itinerary you choose, your private guide is no run of the mill tour guide. No one does the passion of Spain, its history, beauty and chaos better than we do! We commit to our guests not only understanding the city or town we are touring in but how each place fits in the overall time-line of Spain, Europe and the world. No matter your age your brain will be engaged to its utmost.

        You will go home with true Spanish friends. We are still in contact with many of our guests from years earlier. Thank you for your active participation in enriching our lives by choosing us and letting us get to know you!

My husband and I have had the privilege of having Kate as our guide in Spain and Valencia on three separate occasions. She is knowledgeable and personalizes her tours to fit your individual needs. Kate makes history come alive as she is a masterful storyteller. The tours with her have left us with very pleasant, unforgettable memories.

Kate Redding is amazing! She is kind, supportive, insightful, and very accommodating. She is a fabulous tour guide. She taught my students so much about the culture, traditions, and history of Spain. She is full of boundless energy and is a fountain of knowledge. You will not be disappointed with her tours.
