Destinations by Maribel


Maribel’s Guides is a full service Travel Planning Specialist offering exclusive custom itineraries for individuals, families and groups of friends traveling together in Spain, Portugal and the south of France for the first time, as well as for those returning to continue their experience on the Iberian Peninsula. Custom itineraries are based on the individual needs and requirements of the client and range from a simple one-day wine tour of the Rioja to a month long adventure in Spain, Portugal or France, for a birthday celebration, anniversary, family reunion, wedding, honeymoon or other special event. Custom itineraries are designed around your interests in the arts and architecture, food and wine, and cultural history of the Iberian Peninsula. We strive to offer unique destinations, local cuisine and a pace of travel to suit your individual style, and you can expect to enjoy the same personable guides and attention to detail that clients enjoy on our established tours offered through Iberian Traveler. Members of museums, art associations, clubs, college and university groups, and families wishing to explore their heritage, will find our depth of knowledge ensures an authentic experience.  

Our custom tour packages are paced to allow you the time to look, listen and take advantage of any opportunity that may arise.  We will present you with optional excursions, restaurant recommendations and shops you might not discover if traveling on your own. The secret to our consistent level of excellence is our own experience, and that of our guides and associates, with your destination.  You will find our guides and associates knowledgeable, well-organized, delightful and thoroughly fluent in your language.

Maribel’s Guides can arrange accommodations in hotels or apartments, country homes or luxury villas, private transfers, rental cars, rail tickets, guided tours and special events. Travel Planning Services include unique wine and gastronomy tours, folk and music festivals, art, culture and architecture interests, photography tours, hiking and trekking, mountain biking, golf, tennis, skiing, sailing, surfing, river rafting, fishing, spas and resorts, a beach holiday, thalassotherapy, visiting historic castles, a visit to a bull ranch and equestrian tours.
