In just a few days, some of our Mediterranean destinations will be reopening their doors to European tourists, setting the stage for the next steps to reopen to other international guests. We cannot wait to travel again and to plan your perfect tailor made holiday in these spectacular countries! This week, we spoke with some of our favorite tour guides in Spain so that our clients can get to know them a little better as they share stories, tips and expert advice for a future trip!
But first… Spain needs no introduction. This vibrant, colorful country has some of the continent’s most famous cities and museums, and the different regions are so varied that even return travelers will always be able to see something new and unique. We have some truly wonderful guides and drivers that help our clients explore and discover these amazing cities and villages, and they are incredibly important part of what makes your trip come together seamlessly. While we cannot meet you personally, these great professionals are your hosts in their home country, and we know that they are the best. They are people we know and tours we have been on ourselves, and they are colleagues and in many cases, good friends as well.
1. What do you love about being a tour guide in Spain? Why did you decide to become a guide?
Colm, our expert local guide in San Sebastian (below):
I’m half irish, so I have family and friends coming over a lot, so as you can imagine, I show them around (a lot!). My best friend since we were 5 years old has been a tour guide in Spain for many many years. One day he asked me if I could help him with a group and I loved it.
