About us

The Spanish Destination Management Specialists

Spanish destination management by people who have a passion for España and Portugal.  As genuine devotees of the towns and cities we have chosen to live in, we know about trips and activities in Spain through tried and trusted personal experience. We are proud of our highly successful record at supplying Spanish travel services, and our team regularly receives praise for its efforts from satisfied customers. We are proud to be considered the number one Spanish Destination Management operator.

Back in the late 90’s and early “noughties” The Spain Event’s founding partners already had accumulated considerable experience working as tour guides all over Spain. We had walked and cycled the Camino de Santiago many times, we’d taken groups golfing on Pedreña, the home course of Seve Ballesteros. We’d sailed around Formentera and visited the Pueblos Blancos de Andalucia to show our guests and customers around.
