This travel company was exceptional in every way. During the planning stages, this company paid attention to every last detail and created a perfectly customized itinerary for a large group with different interests, ages, and physical abilities. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this travel company to future travelers. The olive oil estate visit was really informative, and the people warm and fun. The tapas tour in Sevilla with our guide was also exceptional, but it is hard to choose. All of our experiences were fun and memorable.
I chose this travel agency after reading about their services online. We were impressed with all the little details that were looked after. The quality of guides for tours was superb. Having a number to call and chat while on the trip was so helpful. I loved the entire itinerary! I felt safe and supported at all times; it was easy to rely on Lugarex.
I just came back from the most amazing trip with Lugarex touring Andalusia, Spain. We were a group of 6 women with a lot of different personalities and this company delivered something for everyone. From the very beginning our trip planner was attentive and professional and provided me with information to put together the best trip I could for the 6 of us. We wanted to experience culture and history and the beauty of Andalusia in a luxurious setting. The trip was fantastic - from the minute we stepped off the plane there was somebody there waiting for us, we were shuttled and guided every day by a different person who was always punctual and friendly and would bend over backwards to accommodate us. Our accommodations were palatial and grand, and our trip planner added beautiful fresh fruit and chilled Cava for us to enjoy. Our tour guides were top notch and informative. Lugarex provided us with restaurant suggestions, and the tour guides also did. I am an avid traveler and was so impressed with the organization of the whole trip. We even threw our trip organiszer a curve ball and asked him to throw in a winery last minute- he gave us a private tour of a winery with a complimentary lunch- pure class!!! The whole trip was amazing! If I could take the trip again the only thing I would do differently would to spend more time, unfortunately we only had 1 week.
The customer service was well beyond any expectation. The tours and unique experiences themselves also exceeded expectations and were exactly what we believe made the trip a wonderful experience. The communication was prompt and clear and gracious. Our tour guide gave us such a beautiful glimpse of the city's history as well as culinary experience. And she was pure joy to spend time with and get to know.
Our travel specialist was able to provide an excellent tailored itinerary for our four-city tour. Guides very knowledgeable, restaurant recommendations were first class. We loved our trip, especially our privately guided tours in Santiago, Bilbao and in the San Sebastian coastal area.
I would highly recommend the Lugarex team to anyone that wants to see Spain. The team and our point of contact within it were so easy to work with while planning the vacation and more importantly, easily accessible while we were actually in Spain. We made MANY last-minute changes while we were there, and he was so accommodating and responsive to every single request. Everything went EXACTLY as planned - pickups, transfers etc. Nothing was left to chance, and everything was flawless. I LOVE not having to wait in those long lines for the attractions. We LOVED all the hotels that were chosen. They were all small boutique hotels that were centrally located to everything. The guides were ridiculously knowledgeable, friendly and more importantly totally flexible. We have done many private tours, and I would rate these guides as among the best we have ever had. Besides their depth of knowledge (which honestly was terrific) they were all incredibly well mannered, easy to get along with and just generally lovely people. I don't think there was a question we asked that they couldn't answer and they all seemed to genuinely love what they do AND loved working for Lugarex, which I thought was important.
My family and I would like to thank Lugarex for organizing an incredible week for us. The only problem was that it was too short, and we missed some major highlights out of necessity, but we are inspired to return. We found Lugarex to be highly professional and organized, and appreciate your quick responses and willingness to accommodate our requests.
Lugarex planned and delivered the best 14 day trip to Spain for my wife and me. Everything from transportation to location of the hotels to sightseeing with English speaking guides was just perfect and to our liking. Thanks to our guides who recommended vegetarian restaurants in all the cities we visited. We will definitely recommend this agency to our friends.
Wow! Just Wow!! Our trip was amazing!!! Our trip planner was amazing-very patient with our party trying to make decisions about what to do and where to go. I was suspect at first about some of the things he suggested, but those things ended up being the best part of the trip. The support offered during the trip was outstanding, and if we needed something, all I had to do was text the main office, and it was taken care of within 5 minutes. Again-our trip was terrific and if we had to do it over we would do it the exact same way!!!!
My sister in law recommended this travel company, but I decided to work with them based mostly on their prompt and professional replies right from the first moment I contacted them. They offered excellent service, good coordination with all the departments. i.e.: hotel, transfer etc. We particularly appreciated how helpful the company was getting a passport that one of my kids left behind and got it delivered the next day to our hotel in Seville from Granada. To me, this is the most memorable experience I have with Lugarex. We felt safe and supported at all times.
I was traveling with a large family group (10 pp) and needed professional help to coordinate transfers and multi-activity. LUGAREX enhanced our holiday in Lisbon & Barcelona and made a brilliant work customizing our holiday. LUGAREX coordinated a special tour at Camp Nou, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. All aspects of LUGAREX were brilliant, including their service and multiple phone calls to make sure all aspects were perfect. Thank You!
A trip prepared with love. My partner and I wanted to visit Andalusia in the hope of exploring it in a different way than visiting the usual tourist hotspots. Lugarex customized our trip and organized private visits that meant moving at our own pace and without the need to follow a tight schedule. They showed us Andalusia as locals - everyday places that helped us understand southern Spain, the way of life and the customs. The trip was excellent and they took care of every detail along the way to make us feel that we were their priority. An anniversary trip that I will never forget, thanks!
We only had a week in Spain, and the trip planned for us covered Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Granada and Seville. The organisation was seamless, at no time did we feel rushed, and we experienced the highlights of every city. Lugarex selected very knowledgeable guides who significantly increased our understanding of whatever we were looking at. We stayed in lovely boutique hotels right in the heart of the cities, and they organised all the transport, so we didn't have to think about anything. It was a fabulous experience.
Lugarex did an excellent job for us. Our travel specialist spent the time communicating with me and refined our two-week trip into a perfect one. Both the accommodations and guides were fantastic. The drivers were extremely professional. Everyone we asked about our travel company spoke highly of their professionalism and care, and we would certainly second that assessment. The trip lived up to my highest expectations and Lila adored it. Thank you so much. We will be sure to refer friends to you should they plan on taking a trip to Spain. From start to finish it has been a true pleasure.
Lugarex service before and during the trip was outstanding. I was very impressed! Seville Féria and the wonderful guides that took us around were the highlights of a great trip. The restaurant suggestions were great also.
Lugarex was willing to work with me on specific destinations. The best way to describe my trip is - Perfection! Everything worked as desired/needed, down to people being present on a timely basis for tours or travel to transportation. Fantastic work! We were so pleased that EVERYTHING worked as planned. Life can be quite fine, indeed!
This was our 5th trip to Spain. In the past, we always created our own plan, itinerary, and did our own driving. This time, we wanted a relaxing, personalized and custom tour of Andalusia with guides, hotels and suggestions for sight seeing and time spent in cities in the region. We must say that everything was spectacular. The guides in each city were knowledgeable, friendly, and we liked every one of them. It was a truly personal experience in Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Costa del Sol. Most remarkable was the excellent service when our flight to Madrid was delayed, my husband's luggage was left in Newark and Lugarex arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport, drive us to Madrid train station, and give us two tickets to Seville. Even better was the arrangement to pick us up on our second day in Seville to get us to the airport to retrieve the bag which had arrived from Newark to Madrid to Seville. Absolutely the best service, truly exceptional!
Our group of six, including two ladies of senior years (both 87) had a total blast: The trip of a lifetime. The organisation by Lugarex was 100% spot-on. All guides turned up prior to the appointed times or even made contact before the appointment. Each tour was brilliantly curated for our group. The guides were, to a man, warm, personable, knowledgeable and passionate about their field. The hotels selected each offered the ideal location for the city/town we were staying in. All accommodations were of a high standard representing good value with more than ample in-house and nearby dining options. To be honest... Each succeeding day offered a new and unforgettable highlight. We were blown away by Toledo, then by Granada, then -- wouldn't you know -- by Ronda... Jerez and just possible because of the variety it offered, most of all, by Sevilla.
Our trip was fantastic! We had a wonderful time with our adult children visiting so many beautiful places in Andalusia and Madrid. Our guides were so knowledgeable and pleasant. Transport arrangements were also first class. Most enjoyable and memorable parts were the Prado, the Alhambra and Generalife and the Alcazar. Also, the tapas tour, when we first arrived in Seville, was a great way to get started on our trip! Our travel team was very responsive and took care of anything that came up during the trip.
Booked a trip to Madrid and Barcelona with Lugarex and the experience was fantastic. The private tours were led by knowledgeable people who were able to tell us about the history of Madrid and Barcelona. Lugarex 24x7 support via WhatsApp made us feel comfortable and secure. Would most certainly use Lugarex again when travelling to Spain.
Lugarex was highly recommended to us by a friend. We had an unbelievable holiday in Spain. Lugarex planned all of the details - and then some. We loved touring Barcelona and walking through the Gothic Quarter. We also enjoyed the time we spent in the South relaxing. Granada was worth the long drive and incredible to see. The people in Spain were fantastic.
We wanted a service that provided a tailored travel experience in Spain. We decided to proceed with Lugarex after interacting with their team. The trip and service were excellent. Lugarex delivered on everything that was promised. We loved Barcelona. Our hotel was great - well located with an interesting vibe. There wasn't a single most memorable moment as we really enjoyed everything. Our guide was outstanding, we've experienced many guides in our travels, and she ranks as one of the best. The support during the trip was great, and the few times we needed to get in touch, the response was almost immediate.
Our friend found Lugarex online and recommended your service. Everything was so well done from the transportation to the hotels to the friendly people; we enjoyed our trip! The art museums in Madrid and our knowledgeable and art expert tour guide. He made the art so much more understood! The tapas tour in Seville was so much fun. Our hotels were all wonderful.
Friends had used this travel agency's services and insisted that I used them too. We had a great time. Lugarex is extraordinarily organized, and all our needs were taken care of. We loved our tours -, especially to Sagrada Familia and Montserrat. We also had just the right amount of downtime, which was suggested by Lugarex. Tossa de Mar was just what we needed after the flight over.
Excellent! I have only good things to say about Lugarex....Everything went very very smoothly....The hotels were perfect. The drivers were great. The guides knowledgeable and friendly. I will recommend this travel agency without hesitation.
I chose this travel agency because they were very professional and attentive to customer. Exceptional service! Thank you! Granada, seeing the Alhambra, the Islamic architecture was awe inspiring!! Cordoba mosque and street of flowers. Malaga- Gibralfaro and the Picasso museum, these were all some of the absolute highlights of our trip. Despite my last-minute trip decision and that we visited during the Christmas period, the entire travel plan and a well-thought itinerary resulted in a memorable trip. Throughout the trip I felt safe and supported at all times; it was easy to rely on Lugarex.
What we liked the most was the personalised and customised approach that Lugarex took throughout our entire experience with them. We appreciated the 1st phone call and the time the travel specialist took to understand our needs and requirements and subsequent follow up enquiries. Our group of four believes that this is our most enjoyable holiday and the most efficient service. Each of us had different highlights. My husband enjoyed the Guggenheim while my sister and I enjoyed the whole experience of Santiago de Compostela, the best!
After an extensive online search, we found Lugarex's website to be the most professionally presented and made a non-Spanish speaker very comfortable interacting with you online. In the end, it was not just the stunning website that proved the value, but all that the company did. For in life we know that what's on the surface may not always be what's underneath. The immediate response to our web inquiry and the phone call that followed were extremely positive and convinced us of the company's professionalism and ability to accommodate our requests. The guides were superb, personable and went out of their way to ensure that we had the best experience and access to their expertise and their cities. We appreciated that most were natives in each of the places we visited. Having the opportunity to interact with people who are fiercely proud of their country helped us to see and experience Spain in a unique way. We especially appreciated your sensitivity to our request for Jewish history content whenever possible.
Lugarex provided a wonderful combination of service, attention, thoughtfulness, and professionalism throughout our interactions, from the early stage of planning until the end of our trip. We loved that the team in Lugarex offered suggestions which we had not previously considered that added to our experience of Spain. This tour company should be anyone's first choice when considering a personalized trip to Spain.
Of all companies that we considered, Lugarex put together the best itinerary and provided excellent personal service. The trip itself was excellent. Everything went smoothly and was first class. The accommodations in Seville and Tossa de Mar were spectacular. We really appreciated the support during our trip. Having the internet hot spot was terrific. We were grateful for the extra effort that went into trying to rearrange our schedule when we had an emergency; working with hotels so we could check in early, and all of the behind the scenes work that went into making our experience so smooth.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that we have shown you how passionate we are about bespoke travel in Spain. We look forward to introducing you to the best that Spain has to offer and to a once in a lifetime experience in this extraordinary country.
