Spain Savvy is about giving travelers the chance not just to visit Spain, but to delve into its culture and walk away with a deep understanding of the country and its people. We go beyond the usual cliches and offer unique experiences and personal recommendations to make your trip truly unforgettable. Forget about logistics – we will take care of all the details so you can focus on taking in the sights and sounds and connecting with the special people who will make everything come alive.
It can be overwhelming to plan an itinerary to a country you’ve never visited. We will do all the legwork to craft a complete, customized itinerary based on your trip length, budget, interests, needs and wishes.
We specialize in Spain but can also provide authentic, memorable experiences and travel planning assistance in Portugal, Morocco and other European countries.
Each client who contacts us is provided with a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, personalized product.
Behind Spain Savvy is a team of true professionals you will meet along your journey. From the driver who meets you at the airport to your private guide; from the waiter at the restaurant we recommend to the reception staff at your hotel, we pride ourselves on teamwork to make sure you have the most pleasurable experience. At the helm of our operations is Managing Director Sarah Gemba – an American-born resident in Spain for 15 years and a seasoned travel adviser. She will be your main point of contact from the moment you decide to travel to Spain until the moment you are back home unpacking your souvenirs. On our blog, you can read more about some of our most prized Spain Savvy partners.

We will fill in all the holes in your itinerary and give form to your trip by suggesting activities based on your interests and physical level. Your days will be busy and full, but will still include plenty of time to sit back and relax to take it all in and enjoy yourself.
If you decide to include guided visits as part of your trip, you are in for a real treat. We work with some of the best guides – knowledgeable and warm people who share the Spain Savvy passion about showing visitors the real Spain.

For our travelers who wish to incorporate a language acquisition element in their trip, Spain Savvy is pleased to partner with LaCasa Sevilla, specialists in custom Spanish classes. LaCasa offers Spanish language learning outside of the traditional classroom space with a private, expert and native Spanish teacher. With the flexibility of LaCasa, you can learn Spanish in real-time communicative situations – while ordering a coffee at a local café, over tapas at an authentic bar or market, or while shopping in the city. LaCasa Sevilla offers Spain Savvy clients the unique opportunity to learn both the Spanish language and culture in a totally immersive environment. Sevilla will become more than just your vacation destination, it will also be your classroom. Should you choose to include a language element during your trip, Spain Savvy and LaCasa will collaborate to custom-design an educational program just for you!
