I love to share my knowledge and passion for Spain. The best it has to offer, with its truly amazing history and culture. Getting to know its passionate people who love their country and love life. Its contrasts and diversity never fail to surprise and delight our clients. Tour directing has enabled me to experience and discover amazing places but the most satisfying aspect is getting to know the people I have met along the years. I never stop learning and being surprised by our tour members, many of whom are an inspiration to me and their fellow travelers. So many new bonds are created amongst people from all over the world and all walks of life. It's so rewarding to see our clients having such great experiences that they will cherish forever as I guide and accompany them every step of the way through this wonderful country.
