WHAT DO OUR TRAVELERS SAY ABOUT US?
Our clients make our reputation
Wish You Travels planned our trip really well. We enjoyed or holiday very much. Wish You Travels understands our needs and provided useful and insightful advices. The planning and communication process was well recorded and adjusted accordingly. The presentation of the itinerary was easy to understand and professionally presented. Wish You Travels made great choice regarding hotels and restaurants for us. Our driver was very professional and looked after us for the entire trip. We had a memorable trip. We would use Wish You Travels for our future trips to Spain and Portugal. Highly recommended.
Our family had a wonderful trip to Spain in late May and early June 2022. Everyone from Wish You Travels were extremely kind, helpful, and patient as we worked together to define an itinerary for our family. They provided great insight as we considered the specific cities we wanted to visit and made good recommendations based on taking the time to get to know us and our interests. We truly loved every city and all activities but the highlights for us were: 1) Private boat day tour in Mallorca (beautiful water and scenery, great lunch), 2) Granada (easily walkable and very interesting city with the Alhambra and the flamenco show), 3) Sevilla (beautiful city on the river with great architecture and plantings everywhere you look), 4) Day trip to Toledo and visiting the cathedral which is stunning and unlike any we've seen in Europe. Wish You Travels always followed up very quickly on any actions taken and emailed or texted the information back to us. In addition, Lalo was a tremendous help when two of our family members surprisingly tested positive for COVID and we could not return to the U.S. as planned. He helped us extend our trip by a few days, found us a hotel (when all hotels in the city were sold out) and arranged for us to get additional COVID tests a few days later and new transportation to the airport. He took the time to make sure we were well taken care of, even though our itinerary with Wish You Travels was technically complete. WYT did not request any additional fees for these extra services. I would highly recommend Lalo and Wish You Travels for anyone considering a trip to Spain or Portugal. Having someone who is a local (based in Madrid) with great knowledge of the country definitely beats a company based in the U.S. (or another home country) who may have visited Spain a few times. Thank you again, we loved your country and hope to return to visit northern Spain next time!
We took several months to put the trip together. Lalo has great patience for putting up with me. The pre itinerary was fun and exhausting. I had to rely on Lalo's experience and several times I asked him to make the decision as if it was his own trip. The trip turned out better than I expected. The different experiences every day were unbelievable, and every day it topped the day before. Every experience was new and unique, places we did not know that existed and once we went, we were surprised that we knew nothing about them. It was like watching fireworks displace and every firework is better than the last. Of course, the tapas tour and the Spanish cooking Class put this trip over the top. I must say that the drivers and guides we used were very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Wish You Travels team were tracking us daily and everything went so smoothly that I stopped thinking about what could go wrong the next day. Everything was picture perfect. I would certainly recommend Wish You Travels to anyone thinking about visiting Spain. I guess the true compliment is wanting to use a service again in the future. I talked to Lalo about the possibility of coming back to Southern or Northern Spain next year, possible May or early June.
Our recent trip to Spain and the experience working with the travel company Wish You Travels is nothing short of completely blowing our wildest expectations. I was a bit apprehensive about using a travel company, after all, in the time of internet, I wasn't sure what else a travel agency could offer, boy I was so happy I went this route! From the very beginning they truly listened to what we wanted to get out of our trip. After 3 years of pandemic and many years of not being together as a family, we wanted a vacation that was not only a celebration of our family and let us all explore places together but also have some real family time. Since the very beginning, they heard our wants and needs and created an itinerary that was truly perfect for us, provided alternatives, suggestions and well balanced and insightful feedback that ultimately gave us the perfect trip. Lalo started as a very capable, charismatic and in my words, outstanding contact and ended up as a dear friend to me and my family at the end of the trip. All the team kept in touch with us through the trip to make sure we were all taken care. In the very rare event when things changed for one reason or another, I found they were already one step ahead of us and being extremely proactive.
Wish You Travels went way above and beyond planning, changing, and ultimately creating the most amazing honeymoon my wife and I could have asked for!
This was the best vacation we have ever taken, it was worry free and everything was perfect. I would highly recommend Wish You Travels, they listened to all of our wants and made it fabulous. We did not want to leave and cannot wait to return and explore more of Spain.
We had a memorable trip, everything was perfect! Even though, one member of our party of four was handicapped, and because of the care provided, we were able to see and do almost everything that all tourists do in these areas. It was so obvious that everyone we dealt with along the way really cared about us as travelers!
Our family trip to Spain and Portugal was wonderful. We had private drivers and guides who were always very kind, helpful, and well informed. Lalo and his company Wish You Travels planned the trip from start to finish and kept us fully informed during the planning process as well as frequently checking in on us during the actual trip.
This trip to Northern Spain and around the coast of Portugal was made to order for us by Wish You Travels, and it would be so hard to say what were the very best memories, they were all wonderful! The trip was perfectly designed to see the best of these areas with the amount of time we had, so the planning had to be perfect!
Our trip to Spain and Portugal was amazing in every detail starting with Lalo who organized and planned everything of our trip. Lalo was spectacular because he wanted to make sure we had a fabulous trip! He did exactly what we wanted, and we saw everything we had wished for and made it always the best!!
We have never had such wonderful customer care from any other company and would not hesitate to use you again and have told so many people about you that I am sure you will get lots of new business. Thank you so much and I look forward to travelling with your company again. You have wonderful people working for you and it is the staff that make the company stand out.
Wish You Travels could not have been more helpful! The planning took account of all our wishes, and they were executed as planned from hotel, private visits, unique activities, internal flights and high-speed train tickets. Throughout the holiday agent personal attention during the trip was very evident and one felt that we were always in strong hands to resolve any issue. We have travelled many times with various travel companies, and I have no hesitation in writing that Wish You Travels is at the very top.
The personal guided tours and unique activities that Wish You Travels arranged for us were absolutely fantastic. Each and every guide we had in Lisbon, Porto, Santiago de Compostela, San Sebastian, La Rioja and Barcelona was highly knowledgeable on the history, architecture and culture of their respective cities allowing us to get a real feel for each city we visited.
Wish You Travels promised me that our family vacation to Portugal and Spain would be the trip of a lifetime and he delivered on his commitment in the best way possible.
The first thing that was special was the time he invested to learn about my family to get a sense of who we were, what we liked, what we wanted, how open we were to different ideas, budget and so on.
Wish You Travels may be smaller than other companies, but they truly designed and delivered a spectacular vacation for my family. Thank you!
My trip was so well thought out by my travel agent Lalo. He really took the time to design our dream vacation.
The hotel was awesome and all of the places they recommended to drive and see were fabulous. Not only did he list his favorite places he put all of them on maps. All we had to do was open a link and away we went with a map quest.
The whole trip starting from the first contact till our return has been an amazing experience. We asked for a flavor of Spain and got memories to last a lifetime!
Our Travel Designer was very good at identifying activities which could keep the whole family busy. This was an extreme element throughout the trip and if one day was spent in museums the next day was an activity catering for the children.
We would like to personally thank Wish You Travels for their outstanding service, communication and efforts. We had the trip of a life-time! Our travel planner has been attentive, kind, and courteous. Through our experience we have grown a bond. He worked within our budget, and short time frame, to provide amazing services, experiences, drivers, support staff and an overall vacation. He worked so hard and his attention to detail was impeccable.
We could not have been more pleased with Wish You Travels team. From the initial planning stages of our vacation in Portugal and Spain, all the way to the end of our trip, Wish You Travels was always one text or phone call away to help with anything we might need.
Our trip to Spain and Portugal was fabulous. Our travel agent from Wish You Travels planned our trip perfectly with great drivers, wonderful tour guides and the best food and wine. He and his team were accessible to us throughout our entire trip, which is a great comfort especially when you are new to a country.
Wish You Travels designed a complex itinerary for our family of six, involving seven locations, transfers, museum visits and two days hiking Camino de Santiago. The charming hotels, services and countryside life were breathtaking. The entire experience came off with flawless precision thanks to agent’s planning, attention to detail, and personal service. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Wish You Travels is.
We feel like our amazing family trip to Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba) and Portugal (Porto, Tomar, Sintra, Lisbon) actually began when we started working with our travel agent six months prior to our departure date. He consistently followed up with us to understand our interests, priorities, likes and dislikes, in order to create a wonderful itinerary that satisfied our entire family.
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. Everything seamlessly came together at all times. We were collected, organized and shown around like visiting dignitaries. The hotels were fantastic, and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about traveling around Spain with Wish You Travels.
Our trip to Portugal was awesome! We learned so much about the customs, food and Portuguese history. We never had any concerns about where we needed to be or when, even with quite a few transfers. We could not have had a better travel experience!

Lalo came up with a couple of spectacular itineraries tailor made for us. We eventually decided to go with the Basque Country and Catalonia option, and it was wonderful. Every transfer, activity, or private visit to museums was coordinated to perfection and we couldn’t be happier. The food and the wine were spectacular. Thank you for showing us the time of our lives.
This was a dream holiday. We did a private yacht trip around Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, plus two days in Barcelona. We travel extensively and hands down this was the best one! We didn't have to worry about anything. Wish You Travels took away the hassle of our 'out of the country' holiday. Everyone involved was so friendly and professional. Nothing less than five stars from us!
Lalo Garcia was the perfect person to planning our vacation to Portugal and Spain. He listened to everything that we wanted and came up with a fabulous schedule and great ideas. We were so impressed with the Spanish Paradores, Sevilla Alcazar, and the secret beaches in Portugal that he recommended. We are glad we followed his advice. Thanks so much.
Arriving in Santiago de Compostela Cathedral after one-week hiking was a real highlight! The guide was great, the landscapes unforgettable and we loved the boutique hotels. We wouldn't hesitate to book another trip through you and will be recommending to our friends and family!
Our vacation to Spain and Portugal was perfect from start to finish. Wish You Travels did an excellent job arranging every detail of our trip. From the places we stayed, our drivers, our tour guides, to our dinner recommendations, we could not have asked for anything better. Our boutique accommodations were perfect, really charming. We recommend Wish You Travels 100%!
Extraordinary Experience! From beginning to end, we were well taken care of. Thank you so very much. A very memorable trip indeed!
The trip was absolutely marvelous! We really want to thank you because everything was just perfect: the itinerary, the hotels, the activities, the guides, the drivers, the details, the personal touches… We travel a lot and I can say without doubt that this was the best organized trip we’ve ever had!

Our family trip to Spain was absolutely amazing! The planning process was super easy and very well-tailored. Before the trip, Lalo was super responsive to changes and personal recommendations adapted to us. The guides were fabulous, knowledgeable, and helpful, but also gave us the space we wanted. It proved to be our most enjoyable family trip of the many that we’ve done!
We got back from our honeymoon in Spain yesterday - and just wanted to say thank you so much for organizing our trip. It was better that we imagine!
I'm not usually a tour person, but our trip through Spain with Lalo was like traveling with a local friend. Not only did we get to learn and experience the amazing culture of Spain at great restaurants, hotels, and sites we would have never found on our own, but we also felt safe and cared for. Every detail was thought of, and Lalo treats you like family. I wish I could bring him with me on every trip I take. 5-Star recommendation!!!
Thank you for a memorable Spanish trip. Our driver guide was amazing. He was patient, well-spoken, professional, and committed to our safety and comfort. He was top-notch. Our guides were excellent—very professional and accessible—and we enjoyed the balance of information and the independence.
Our Andalucía trip was amazing. Alhambra in Granada and Cordoba Mosque were breathtaking, and this was one of my favorite trips yet. I wanted to let you know that it was awesome—thank you so much for your help. Next up—planning our next adventure to Barcelona and the Pyrenees!
We had the most amazing time on our trip to Barcelona, Madrid, Sevilla, Ronda and Granada! I can't thank you enough for helping to organize such a memorable vacation. Thank you so much!
We could not be any happier with our travel specialist. Lalo tailor-made our vacation to fit our specific needs. We have booked luxury travel vacations for years with other agencies. Thank you for giving us a vacation of a lifetime! I highly recommend Wish You Travels to arrange your next vacation!
Thank you for all your help and arranging an incredible trip. The hotels, restaurants and private city tours you recommended to us were all perfect; comfortable, luxurious and at the same time not too formal. The logistics worked very smoothly and stress free. Communicating with you was really easy and you certainly understood what we wanted and delivered it. Thanks for an incredible time.
What a top top top trip to Spain! Thanks so much, everything was perfect. Your guides were simply outstanding. The drivers were also terrific. I can't wait to go back to your country! Gracias
I was very impressed with Wish You Travels service. I really felt that they knew exactly what kind of trip I was looking for and all of my queries were answered swiftly and informatively. I will be recommending the company to friends and family, for those who are looking for a stress-free trip to Spain, one of my favorite countries.
This was the most incredible trip! Lalo planned a perfect itinerary on short notice. Our tour guides and drivers were amazing, especially Miguel. We really enjoyed the food and wine tour and our accommodations were wonderful. We could not have asked for a better trip! Definitely recommend Wish You Travels to all!
The luxury customized tour that Wish You Travels made for us was brilliant. Lalo was quick to respond to our queries and had a great knowledge of Spain. The itinerary we were sent was spot on, which meant we could sit back and enjoy ourselves. All transfers were on time and professional. The private flamenco class was amazing - we really couldn't have asked for much more.
I loved Spain!!! I would give it a 11 out of 10. Everything is so well thought out and genuine, a true endeavor of love. I had a fantastic time, I ate the best food ever and I’m planning on returning and visit the North of Spain next year. Just writing this makes me want to go back.
