Hello, I'm Maureen, a luxury travel specialist specializing in creating exceptional journeys to Spain. With a deep passion for travel and a comprehensive understanding of Spain's rich cultural heritage, I am dedicated to curating unforgettable experiences that showcase the must-see destinations of this enchanting country.

Spain offers a plethora of captivating destinations, and I take pride in crafting itineraries that highlight its most iconic and must-see attractions. From the vibrant streets of Barcelona to the majestic Alhambra in Granada and the picturesque countryside of Andalusia, I ensure that my clients experience the very best of Spain.

In Barcelona, I recommend exploring the architectural wonders of Antoni Gaudí, such as the awe-inspiring Sagrada Familia and the whimsical Casa Batllo. A visit to the Gothic Quarter is a must, with its charming medieval streets and historical landmarks.  

The cultural, historical and political center of Spain is Madrid.  The Golden Mile of art galleries has El Prado which competes with the Louvre. The Reina Sofia  features Picasso's Guernica and many 18th-19th century artists. The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum has an eclectic collection of modern art.  Historic shopping of capes, hats, guitars, fans and espadrilles is all within walking distance in the historic quarter of Madrid. 

Moving south, Granada's Alhambra is an absolute marvel. Its intricate Moorish architecture and stunning gardens transport visitors to a bygone era. I arrange private tours to ensure my clients have an intimate and immersive experience.

Andalusia's countryside offers breathtaking landscapes and cultural gems. The vibrant city of Seville, with its iconic cathedral and vibrant Flamenco performances, is a must-visit. I also recommend exploring the picturesque white village of Ronda and the pre-historic caves of La Pileta.

No journey to Spain is complete without indulging in its culinary delights. I guide my clients to savor the finest pintxos in San Sebastian, tapas in Madrid, explore the vineyards of Rioja and sample exquisite paella in Valencia. 

For those seeking a coastal retreat, the stunning beaches of the Costa del Sol and the Balearic Islands, such as Mallorca and Ibiza, offer luxurious beachfront resorts, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant nightlife.

My expertise in luxury travel extends beyond the well-known destinations. I am also well-versed in Spain's hidden gems, such as the medieval town of Toledo, the rugged landscapes of the Montserrat, and the charming villages of Catalunya.

As a luxury travel specialist for Spain, I go above and beyond to ensure my clients have a seamless and unforgettable journey. From arranging private transportation and exclusive access to cultural sites to recommending the finest accommodations and dining experiences, I take care of every detail, allowing my clients to immerse themselves in the beauty, history, and gastronomy of Spain.

With my expertise and dedication to creating extraordinary travel experiences, I invite you to embark on a remarkable journey through Spain, where you will discover the must-see destinations while indulging in luxury, comfort, and personalized service.

Saved my Ireland Trip!
Maureen at AMT really helped me plan my trip to Ireland for myself, husband and in Laws. I was crazy enough to insist that I would rather drive in Ireland than pay the high cost of a private chauffer. And when my father in law dropped the bomb that his drivers license expired, making him unable to drive the manual transmission van only 3 hours before we landed in Ireland, a quick email to Maureen saved the day. She canceled our van and rebooked two automatic cars (which is apparently rare in Ireland) so that my brother in law could drive one and I the other. By the time we landed at the airport, the cars were there, correctly booked, and the money for the van had already been refunded to my credit card. WOW. Then when the London air traffic control CANCELED our flights home for a full day, she helped us book a hotel for the night, and helped us file an insurance claim to cover the cost. Even for the most experienced traveler, she is an invaluable resource.

Dear Georgia, thank you for the kind words. Since that fateful trip you have used my services for travel planning instead of travel rescuing. We make a great team and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Leave your worries at home!
My wife and I have been working with Maureen now since 2015 when we started planning our first European vacation. After dealing with the frustration of trying to book it ourselves, we happened across an American Express travel website. The site was open to non-card members so we elected the country we wanted to visit and were given four agents to reach out to. We decided on Maureen and have never looked back. Maureen made the experience very easy for us since, at the time, we were both working full time. We were sent a short questionnaire which helped her to focus on what worked best for our time, destinations, budget, etc. Our trip was to travel the Northern coast of Spain in a car over a two week period. Maureen and her team handled all the details seamlessly, from the car, to the hotels, to the sites she recommended in each of the five cities we touched. We still talk about that trip! We recommend her to our friends and family constantly.

My New Favorite Place!
Maureen worked with our group of six to arrange THE BEST experience! She was able to accommodate all our collective needs while ensuring each individual was listened to. We explored the glorious Scottish Highlands from our home base in Inverness and ended in the majestic and magical city of Edinburgh. I don't think Maureen could have done any better in organizing this diverse experience.
