    We were unsure of what to expect when we first made contact with Luis. We are now grateful that we placed our faith in him to provide us with an excellent travel experience! His professionalism, knowledge, and desire to provide quality services make him outstanding. His personality and dedication to both the company and client he serves makes him an invaluable asset to have.

    Trip of a Lifetime:

    This trip was fantastic. I really enjoyed walking through northern Spain. The coastline is beautiful and peaceful. The hotels organised by Luis from Hidden in Spain were mostly fantastic, great service, food and reasonable price. The price was quite reasonable and I totally recommend it for someone who wants an enjoyable, peaceful and relaxing trip. The only drawback was the weather at Times. There was a bit of rain. The directions were quite good but if you are stuck, just follow the yellow arrows for the Camino. Enjoy.

    We had a wonderful day touring Asturias with our guides Fernando and David. They exceeded our expectations!. My desire was to visit our family’s ancestral home and church in Santianes de Pravia. It was arranged for someone to open the church specifically for our visit. I was able to see the baptismal font where my great grandfather was baptized in 1864…very emotional. We then were driven through the hills on a scenic road viewing the Casas des Indios down to Oviedo for a tour of the old city ending in a lunch at a cider cafe enjoying various cheeses and wonderful conversations with our guides. Both Fernando and David are excellent guides.
    They were interested in my family story and able to personalize the surrounding culture to help me understand my family’s placement in Astoria’s history. This was a perfect day thanks to Hidden in Spain!!!

    What a wonderful celebration of my husbands 80th birthday. We started in Barcelona. Small Hotel was perfect. Right down in the middle of all the action. One day they were celebrating a holiday. So much fun to see all the people and their flags. Tours, food, lodging was delightful. Onto Sevilla. Another very small hotel that was delightful. So thankful we took the train to Cordoba. That Mosque and Cathedral are a sight to behold. Drove to Granada. Tour there of the Alhambra was exciting. I must say if you are going to Spain north, south, east or west you SHOULD book through Luis. He takes care of everything. Thanks for the wonderful time we had.

      Jane, I really appreciate your words, specially coming from a repeating customer which expects more very time. I loved to organize this for you and I’m ready to organize next one whenever suits you. Thank you for being so lovely and willing to enjoy a trip. Please have a great end of the year and keep in touch! Luis

    Luis, of Hidden in Spain, is exceptional. He listened to what we wanted and then customized a trip for us. He made all the arrangements so that we could see what we wanted, at the pace we wanted. His partner tour guides were informative and inspiring. Luis is extremely competent and very kind!

    We had an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime trip to Spain because of Luis Fernández de Vega and Hidden in Spain. Although I have been to Spain many times as a Spanish teacher, this time I took my 14 family members ranging in age from my youngest nephew, 8, to my mom, 78. I wanted everything to run smoothly so that we could fit the most into our trip and have the best experience possible. (Originally it was just going to be my husband and two teenage sons, but when my sisters saw what we had planned, they wanted to join us with their families – Luis graciously pivoted to make arrangements for the additional travelers.) Luis arranged for beautiful, clean apartments that were centrally located in the cities we visited. He provided friendly, knowledgeable drivers in two minivans that picked us up from the airport and later took us on day trips to nearby towns like Segovia and Toledo. When we were in Segovia, I asked if we could see the castle from a different angle and our drivers drove us to a park where we could see the other side. In every town we had outstanding tour guides who showed us the main attractions and hidden gems. They managed to keep the attention of the 6 boys on our trip (ages 8, 11, 14, 16, 19, 20 and 24) as well as the adults. They adapted to our requests – in Avila our tour guide took us for a walk on the top of the town’s walls after she heard one of the boys ask if we could. We didn’t have to wait in lines because our admissions were purchased in advance.
    In addition to fulfilling my sight-seeing requests for my family, Luis suggested the following additional ones that became the highlights of our trip. In both Madrid and Barcelona we did tapas tours of unique restaurants which provided us with the opportunity to try food and wine pairings that we would not have on our own and to learn about the history of the food of the region. We did a day trip to Costa Brava where we kayaked and snorkeled and even saw an octopus. In Barcelona Luis scheduled a cooking class for us which began with a tour of Barcelona’s market and ended with a four course meal that we prepared together. The days were well balanced with both scheduled activities that we had requested and leisure time.
    When we returned to the States, several family members, including my 24-year-old nephew, sent me photos of food they had prepared in their own kitchens that they had learned to make in Spain. My 16-year-old son woke up our first morning back and said, “I have to admit, I’m sad that we’re not touring any interesting places today.” And my 8-year-old nephew told his mom that he loves me for taking him to Spain. Not only did Luis plan the trip according to our requests and individual needs, he also was in constant communication with me leading up to the trip and throughout our 10 days in Spain. (I had started working with Luis before the pandemic and had to postpone until June of 2023.) I was given contact numbers for our drivers and tour guides. Every aspect of interacting with Luis was clear and professional. He was accommodating and flexible. I could not have planned such a dynamic and well-organized trip on my own and have abounding gratitude to Luis for memories to last a lifetime.

      Can’t thank you enough for your kind words. Even though it is tru we worked hard to make all work properly, people usually don’t take the time to write such a complete review so I really appreciate it. Love to read you enjoyed the trip as a family and the choice of tours and experiences was the right one. One of the most difficult aspects was to find accommodation so you could be all together but apparently the apartment in both cities worked well. Please, do not hesitate to contact me for anything you may need from Spain or Portugal. You have been a pleasure person to work with and your family has been amazing. My bets wishes for all of you.
