Highly Professional Tour Service

We (4 people) took a 1/2 day Gaudi Architecture Tour. The arrangements were perfect and our guide, Mireia Garcia was the BEST guide we had during a 14 day tour of 4 counties! When we return to Barcelona we will use the services of Made for Spain tours - and hopefully we can get Mireia again!

This organization is phenomenal. The car, the driver ("Kaiser"), the two guides (Carles and Sylvia) were perfect! Carles and Sylvia took us to the main attractions in the city and outside of the city. It felt like being with cultural and art historians--their knowledge was amazing. They were punctual, warm and very friendly; they made Barcelona and Montseratt very special for us.

Our American travel coordinator used Made for Spain to make the travel arrangements for our trip to Marbella and Barcelona. Every detail was anticipated. Hotel reservations, tours, transfers and meal reservations for all perfect and everywhere we went we were greeted as VIP's. Would definitely recommend Made for Spain with no reservation!!

Our guides were each nothing short of amazing. Their punctuality, knowledge, hospitality, and person-ability made our experience fantastic. Each guild was willing to do what it took to make the experience memorable.

ALL of the guides were amazing! Pablo, Cynthia, Sonia, David & the other 2 names are slipping my mind. We had such a great time with all of the drivers as well - all of them were personable and informative. Virginia and the tapas tasting was so great - we did not want to end the evening. It was truly a pleasure getting to know Spain through Made for Spain and all of people that made it happen. I want to go back to the flea market with Pablo & i am still talking about the bull farm with Cynthia. Thank you so much for making our trip so well rounded and educational - Love - Ash&Andy

Our guide, Silvia, and driver, Jose Luis, are proud ambassadors of their beautiful Barcelona. Their expertise, personalities, and desire to please made our adventure as positive and rewarding as it could be.
Barcelona in August

We recently came back from our 5 day trip to Barcelona. The trip was fantastic and I would say "beyond our expectations" but, the work Monica and LFT does and the network & experience they have has set the bar very high. The guides (Christina & Veronica) were excellent, and unique in their own way, certainly very worth the money for the value they bring to our trip. The hotel was well located, extremely comfortable, clean, US-friendly, and their concierge service was able to provide restaurant reco's that were not overly touristy (very important to us). We can't wait to identify the next destination, and get to work with LFT again. Finally, the transports were timely, friendly, clean, and helpful. All in all, a great trip - many thanks to Monica and Lake Forest Travel. I will continue to try to convince my friends that working through LFT to help make a trip "perfect" is well worth the effort.

There is a saying that, "you get what you pay for"! Every detail was handled to perfection. The tour guides, chefs, authors, drivers and Blanca (always a phone call away) were wonderful, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Although we only had time for two cities (Madrid and Barcelona) we did them well. We never had to wait for anything. If there was something we thought we would like to do Made for Spain had a suggestion. We always felt comfortable. If only they could figure out a way to manage the weather!!!!

Made for Spain: The best day of our entire trip was spent in Lisbon!!! We had a wonderful guide and driver. We really got to see Lisbon; its tiny narrow cobblestoned streets; a beautiful church and cloister and we even had time for lunch in a beer garden. Our guide was full of information...not just ordinary things..but a tremendous knowledge of history, art, etc. What a great day. Also, for our other three tours, in every single situation, the driver or the guide, usually the driver, assisted my husband (who uses a wheelchair) in getting in and out of the van. The drivers and guides were kind, informative, and willing to assist my husband in any way that they could.

Our trip was very well planned! All tours/activities were enjoyable. We especially enjoyed the walking tours in Granada/Seville and the winery in Ronda. We loved having personal guides who were very friendly, knowledgeable, and spoke English very well. The hotels in all the cities we visited were great...wonderful service and locations! We will use Made for Spain if we visit Spain again in the future.

Guides in foreign cities make trips much more meaningful. However, on other trips the driver has also been the guide which lowers the cost substantially.

A Few Problems
Reviewed on: 23 Jul 2015
Continued - And finally on the last day of our trip, MFS was to pick us up at the hotel and take us to the airport for an early flight. Nobody showed up, and I had to hire a quick cab to make our flight. Overall, not the service for the money.
Expert Friendly Service.

Each guide and driver we worked with through Made for Spain was professional, thorough and knowledgeable. Our Barcelona bike tour with Jaume was fantastic, as was our full-day Barcelona tour with Sonia. We had some questions in Barcelona about train tickets and Paloma was very responsive and helpful behind the scenes. We also had a wonderful tour in Madrid with Belen. We were very impressed with the breadth of knowledge each guide had, and each was totally engaging and very welcoming to us. My family and I loved every bit of it!

We were thrilled to get tickets to see Barcelona FC while in Spain recently. Made for Spain was great in getting our tickets to the hotel desk where we were staying. The tickets we had were good, but unfortunately it was raining and we were seated at the end of the overhang. Therefore, the water kept dripping on us from the overhang.
