A wildly romantic country that dances to a flamenco beat, Spain retains much of its traditional charm at the same time it embraces the new. As you tour Spain, you’ll find great Gothic cathedrals and Moorish palaces, but also sleek modern architecture and cutting-edge cuisines. Our specialists know Spain well and can provide new perspectives on the country’s highlights, from the cosmopolitan streets of Madrid to the wineries of La Rioja.
We can also plan a Spain vacation that will help you dive deep into the country’s distinct regional cultures. Explore Moorish influences in Andalusia, touring the grandiose confines of the Alhambra. Or, you can discover the breadth of cuisine in the Basque Country, where you can enjoy pintxos (tapas on a skewer) and the gourmet offerings of San Sebastián. And, in Catalonia, you have the art and architecture of Barcelona, where the legacy of avant-garde minds like Gaudí, Picasso and Miró lives on.

I would highly recommend Infinity Worldwide Vacations. We used them for a holiday to New England which was just fabulous. They listened to what we wanted to include, the type of accommodation and budget. They always give options. They have specialists for each area which is really useful as you get first hand experience and recommendations. We are using them again for Italy which again, looks amazing…..Covid has shelved our plans for now but they have kept in touch and been incredibly flexible and helpful around re-booking.
We asked for a delay of 1 year before there was any legal requirement – Intrepid Worldwide Vacations agreed without any hassle. Last week I decided I was still not confident to travel next year and requested a refund. Infinity Worldwide Vacations not only honored our request, they did did not hesitate and very much surpassed our expectations. A very professional organization and would always use them in the future. Well done to Anna in particularly and a very big thank you!
Yet again excellent service and support. I have travelled the world of Europe with them. Would never consider using any other travel agent by far the best I have ever used. Attention to detail is fantastic
