Insider’s Bespoke Trip Design & Itinerary Planning

Tailored for you, combining your wishes with our expertise.

Any tour company can show you round a place, very few can truly introduce you.

Insider’s Travel draws its name and reputation from local knowledge that goes beyond the mere sights and highlights to shaking hands with the key players in Spanish society and culture. We enhance every experience with a truly native twist or authentic flourish, often calling on expert assistance from top names in their field. Our contact books list Michelin-starred chefs, world-renowned flamenco dancers, even dukes and duchesses. Whether it’s a short-notice reservation at a restaurant with a long waiting list, or an after-hours tour of a private art collection with a specialist historian, we’ll help you get to know Spain on a more personal level.

Meg Emmitt,

Meg, our wizard Trip Designer, hails from New Jersey, living in Madrid since ‘09. While in Madrid doing research for a master’s program in Spanish Art History, she fell in love and decided not to return home! Now her love affair is mainly with Spain and its culture. She likes to push boundaries and break norms, becoming the first and only female coach in her son’s baseball league and being the only female player in her adult, male soccer league. Staying active is important to Meg and she has created our dynamic running tour (take her tour!) as well as exquisite, personalized trips around Spain & Portugal.
