Spanish Trails by Alba Programas SL is a boutique incoming travel agency that offers intimate, informative and entertaining day trips in Barcelona and around Catalonia for more than 15 years. Since early 2016 we are also in Madrid and its surrounding area. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide truly unique and personalized guided experiences, focused on culture and education.

It is important for our guests to know the value of what they are paying for. This is what you get when you book with Spanish Trails:

Local Knowledge & Experience

Sharing local history, culture and tradition is a key part of the Spanish Trails experience. Our goal is to make certain that all of our guests gain a true understanding of these elements of local life.

Away from the crowds is where we take you whenever we can. Our destinations are often times places that buses and the crowds cannot get to. For more popular sites of interest, we make sure to stay one step ahead of the crowd.

Personable, Entertaining & Knowledgeable Guides

Most of our clients describe our trips as a day out with friends. We provide dynamic, informative and personalized guided experiences where the guide stays with the clients. We do not leave guests to explore independently, although that is always an option for clients who want to venture out on their own.

Consistency & Professionalism

Have a look at the hundreds of 5-star client reviews on Trip Advisor, Cruise Critic and other similar traveler review sites for an unbiased snapshot of client opinion on the services we provide daily.  Since 2001 we have proudly hosted more than 16,000 independent travelers (average of 5 guests/experience) and thousands of event participants, of which many have been repeat clients and/or have sent family, friends and colleagues our way.

All Inclusive Experiences

Great meals of traditional and new age local food and wine are included in our prices. Often, our clients qualify the meal as their best and most plentiful since arriving to Spain. Water is also included throughout the day and, yes, our clients can freely enjoy ample quantities of the wine we provide!

Entrances to the museums and monuments are included in the price of the day trip, so you do not need to worry about a thing!
