Ramon Tormos

I started traveling 25 years ago. I'm totally in love with Spain, its unique places, its diverse people, traditions, gastronomy and, of course, its history (I hold a degree in Modern and Contemporary History).

I really enjoy designing trips because I love remembering my personal experiences, sharing tips... and when travelers are enjoying the trip I can join them (although just in my imagination).

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I am specialized in customized trips to Spain. Little spots off the beaten path in Spain accompanied by private local guides, private transfers and the best accommodations.

History Tours, Art Tours, Wine routes, Gastronomy Experiences, Cultural Experiences and Exclusive Access Experiences"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Some years ago, a friend needed help in his travel business. He knew about my passion for travel so he offered me to turn my hobby to my job. For me it was the right moment in my life to jump into that adventure and today, I consider myself a very fortunate person."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I empathize easily, so every time I visit a place where people lived long ago and were happy (or unfortunate), the experience is always overwhelming and unique to me. I have had these kind of feelings in Spanish places like The Roman Theatre at Mérida, Cartagena or Sagunto, The Alcázar of Segovia or the birthplace of King Ferdinand the Catholic."

We had a wonderful trip to Spain. Ramon listened to our interests and created an outstanding itinerary! Ramon checked in with us daily, inquiring about our travel and providing us with the names of our guides and a phone number in case we needed. In Madrid (Pablo), Toledo (Almudena), Cordoba (Joaquin), Sevilla (Elena), and Malaga( Julian) we learned about Spain's rich history from our knowledgable guides with a passion for Spain. Almudena surprised us with a visit to her beautiful home where we were greeted with hot tea and an extravagant table of baked goods and Marzipan. Our tour guides were personable, considerate and accommodating to our needs. Ramon listened and was sensitive to my needs by having our guides provide transportation when the extent of the walking would be too much. Helio, our driver to Malaga , was very kind and professional. The hotel accommodations were luxurious and all in ideal locations with beautiful views. Our room in Cordoba had the original mosaic ceiling. We feel very fortunate to have experienced Spain through the eyes of people who love their country! We loved experiencing the culture, history, and sights of Spain. Some highlights included meandering through the gardens, touching the stone that has withstood time, learning about the religious and Jewish history of Spain, the cooking class, markets, museums in Madrid, listening to a group singing and playing guitar in the street, wandering the narrow streets of Toledo and sampling the tapas, wine, churros with chocolate, and ice cream. An experience of a lifetime that we will always hold dear. A special thank you to Ramon and kudos to kimkim!
