Introducing Spain

Discover the best of Spain.
You won't need to go far beyond the Alhambra and Seville to find the real Spain. Step away from the crowds and you'll find that this destination has retained its depth—centuries of history linger in hilltop villages, and wild landscapes abound from the craggy Pyrenees to the Mediterranean coast. This is where you come to revel in the good life, whatever that means to you: hike through Andalucía, embrace the architecture of Bilbao, and eat your way through Basque Country

When is the best time to visit?
Generally, April-June and September-October offer the most pleasant weather and fewer crowds than peak summer months. One exception is northern Spain, where springtime sees more rain than in other parts of the country; here, June-September is your best bet. July and August are the hottest months of the year—for sun worshippers, this could be the perfect time to visit.    

Where should you go?  
If you're heading to Spain for the highlights, you'll want to start with Madrid, Barcelona, Córdoba, Granada, and Seville. Not your first trip? Consider San Sebastián, Bilbao, Santiago de Compostela, Valencia, and Malaga. And if you truly want to venture off the track, craft your itinerary from the literal road less traveled—hike through the Pyrenees to hidden villages, drink wine in La Rioja, explore Mérida and the Extremadura region, and the list goes on. Your local specialist can book a trip with your specific goals and interests in mind.

How many days do you need?
While it's possible to have a fun trip in one of Spain's cities over a long weekend, we recommend at least 5 days if you really want to experience a region. Madrid makes for a great base for taking regional day trips, and the same goes for Barcelona—medieval coastal villages and hiking trails in the Pyrenees are all within driving distance.

If you have 10 days, choose between northern and southern Spain to minimize travel time. A southern route could include Madrid, Mérida (or another stop in Extremadura), Seville, and Granada. Travelers interested in the north can hit Barcelona, San Sebastian, Bilbao, Oviedo, and Santiago de Compostela. With two weeks or more, geography is no longer an issue—just connect the dots to form a country-wide itinerary.

Upcoming trip, Spain - Aug 3 - Aug 10, 2019

Traveler: Maria M. - Local specialist: James Monro

Amazing trip! This is my second trip with Kimkim and I am already planning for the next one. My daughter and I were treated like VIPs! Every detail was anticipated and handled. Every guide ( Miguel Angel, Estephania and Christina) were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Every driver, whether for a short ride or a day long assignment, was amazing. I can't thank David, our driver for Malaga, for how wonderful, punctual, knowledgeable and friendly he treated us all day. Please don't change anything about your services.

Patricia was amazing and offered me one of the most memorable parts of my trip. I arrived in Spain to Madrid and they’d organised a welcome pack with a local mobile Phone printed and itinerary with a day to day program.
The trips especially in Barcelona were absolutely amazing. The excisions were great!! Especially the Gaudi trips and the gothic quarter, with incredibly fun and knowledgeable guides but my standout was the Vintage Sidecar tour to the vineyard at Alella with Tarek. A brilliant different fun and fabulous experience! Using KimKim makes it’s expensive and I think if you got in touch with local operators you could possibly do this at half the cost but for me it was worth it.
Patricia in particular was so helpful and I really recommend her!

The itinerary was exactly what we asked for, some action, some down time and very family friendly as we traveled with our six year old.
I’m not sure what I was expecting upon arrival, but James and the Kim Kim team far exceeded my expectations. Upon arrival to our first hotel we received a package with what we referred to as our “vacation bible” . It’s was beautifully packaged with fans and a leather wallet. Our first tour was an artisans tour with Julia who was super sweet and filled us in on the history of Madrid.
Kim Kim also arranged a day trip to Toledo. Our Toledo guide Enrique was genuine, hilarious and looked like Adam Sandler! He has lived there his entire life and was such a knowledgable and passionate guide! It was my favorite tour!
My favorite experience was Granada. The city is magical as well as the hotel and Alhambra. Our guide, Paco showed us a great time. If I had to choose another city to live in, it would be Granada!
Our train trips, tours, rental cars, hotels were all set up by the Kim Kim team! Did I mention we had a Spanish liaison Rocio who went out of her way to check in with us at every stop to make sure we were enjoying ourselves!
We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation and it definitely wouldn't have been so smooth and easy without Kim Kim! We are already ready to start planning our 2020 trip and will absolutely use this service again!
Thank you James, Rocio and the Kim Kim Team
