These are some of the letters and e-mails our travelers have sent us after their trips. We couldn’t be happier!!
Hola Samuel the family have returned home safely to Australia! Short note to say thanks for all the organisation and planning put into co-ordinating our rather packed trip to Spain and Portugal! A fantastic set of guides and recommendations all over Spain and Portugal who you’ve obviously established great relationships with.
Will look you up for a Basque area tour next time for sure!

Thank you so much for organizing a fantastic trip to Spain. Everything was first class.
Our accommodations were perfect as well as the transport service. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful that made our experience fun and memorable.
We left with a deep appreciation for the history, architecture, food and cultural mix of Spain. We had some knowledge, but not the breath and depth of what we saw and experienced.

Mi esposo y yo viajamos con otras dos parejas. Samuel fue recomendado por una Amiga en Panamá. La experiencia fue a otro nivel. Samuel y su Equipo nos organizaron nuestro viaje en España pensando en todos los detalles.
Los Tours privados en España, Guías, Chóferes y el mismo Samuel, estuvieron pendientes de nosotros en todo momento. Es el dinero mejor invertido de todo el viaje.
Nuestras vacaciones en España no hubieran sido tan fabulosas sin la ayuda de Samuel y su agencia de viajes en España.
Vale la pena la inversión.

Samuel Rojo of Carmeltrail put together a fantastic trip to Spain, Morocco and Portugal for 2 friends. We travelled to Morocco which included Marrakech, Casablanca, Essaouira & an amazing day hiking on a mule up the High Atlas Mountains. Then on to Spain to Barcelona, Madrid, San Sebastian, Gernika-Lumo,Bilboa, Seville, Nerja, & Granada. We also went to Portugal to see Lisbon, Evora & Elvas.
My friend contacted multiple travel agencies because we wanted a very unique and individual trip. Most sent us can answers and after requesting a more unique experience this Spain travel agency was the only one that answered all of our questions and came up with a fantastic trip for us.
Samuel lined up all of our travels from airlines, trains, private museum & sightseeing tours, restaurant reservations, drivers and guides. We were picked up everywhere we needed to be picked up and taken within the multiple cities ; from city to city ; country to country.; to hotels ; to airports; and to train stations. We were extremely pleased with all of our guides who were very knowledgeable, helpful and kind. We were very pleased with all of our boutique type hotels – each was very unique and delightful.
We put Samuel to the full test because both of us had unique requests and he was able to put together a fantastic trip for both of us. We did so many activities that I cannot list them all but some of the highlights were Essaouira tour; High Atlas mountain mule trip; Gaudi architectural tour in Barcelona; private tour of the Prado museum in Madrid with the extremely knowledgeable Art historian guide, Paloma; private tour of the Guggenheim Museum; our very sweet tour guide , Maria, in Lisbon who smiled all the time and treated us to a very special Portwine lounge experience; private Vineyard tour near Nerja; absolutely divine Flamenco dinner and show at the best Flamenco in Madrid with a Michelin star chef ; we had many private Tapa tours in many of the cities ; private tour of Alcazar & Alhambra in Granada & very relaxing resort on the beach at Nerja. We particularly loved our drivers.
We were so lucky that we got to meet Samual while we were in Madrid for coffee one evening. He is so friendly and kind. We were extremely happy with our marvelous adventure that Samual and this Spain travel agency put together for us!
You will not go wrong using Carameltrail and he can put together anything that you desire.

Carameltrail was referred to us by a friend who had just travelled to Spain and used the services of this Spain travel agency. She said she had an amazing trip to Spain and I am so grateful she told us about this!
This was the best trip I have taken and I have travelled quite a bit. First of all, working with Samuel takes out all of the hassle of planning a trip to another country. We told him what we liked to do and he came up with an itinerary that he felt we may like. He was very responsive and answered all of my questions. He was happy to discuss back and forth and change things if we wanted. We reached out to him pretty close to our trip but he was able to get everything booked for us. This I must say is one of the best parts! No need to do research or read reviews or figure out train schedules and timing–Samuel does it all! And the private tours were amazing!
All of our guides were so nice and knowledgable. It was great being able to hang out with someone who is from and lives in the country you are visiting. It really changes your experience and gives a look beyond what you would see as just a tourist.
The private tours in Spain allowed us to learn more about the art and architecture than I would have otherwise. My favorite part of European trips is usually the history, art and architecture and this time I got to experience all of this at a completely different level.
Also the hotels he picks are so central! We went to Barcelona and Madrid and were able to walk all over both cities from where we were staying. Samuel recommended taking a day trip to Toledo and I absolutely loved it and don’t think I would have ever known to go there if I had done this on my own.
I cannot go back to traveling any other way! I plan to go back to Portugal but this time with Carameltrail so I can experience it the right way!
