Angela Vigil

I am from the Basque Country in the North of Spain where green landscapes meet the sea. Since I was little, I have traveled through Spain as my family comes from different regions of the country.

As a student, I spent a year living in France and many summers in England. I made many friends and really dove into the local culture, but I also discovered how much I like to travel.

When I ended my degree in Marketing, I moved to Madrid, loud, chaotic and always exciting! It is a very welcoming city where I have met people from all around the world.

Being Basque, my passion for food is strong and when I am not travelling you will probably find me cooking or exploring the expansive gastronomic offerings of Madrid.

I am also a movie buff and as much as I can I love to add filming sites from movies and series into my trips! One my latest trips included some Game of Thrones sites in Morocco!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Unique experiences in Spain. Guided tours and activities to discover the local side of the country. Gastronomic tours and wine tourism. 100% hand-made itineraries."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I had always worked in sales and marketing departments but when the chance to work in the travel industry came, I jumped for it!

I like to think that destiny had something to do with it as I have been planning trips for my family, friends and myself for a long time. It just felt right from the beginning!

I love the planning process as much as the trip itself. For some of my trips, I have even crafted my own travel guides!

When I travel, I love getting lost and discovering hidden corners, that is why I love the liberty of a road trip. However, I also love the hustle and bustle of big cities. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"The first time I visited Paris it was in the company of a Parisian friend. I stayed at her home in an arrondissement where daily life happened but not far from the touristic center.

Without any doubt, the highlight of that trip was our visit to the Louvre. It was almost closing time in the evening and when we arrived at the Mona Lisa, we realized we were ALONE in the hall!

We had the amazing luck of admiring the painting in silence in a really intimate way until the security guard kindly asked us to leave.

The guidance of my friend really made a huge difference and although it wasn’t a long trip, I really had the feeling of connecting with the city in a very local way!

I always have that purpose in mind when I plan my trips and I will for sure have it in mind when I plan yours!"
