“What an incredible vacation”

“Melissa asked important questions about what my husband and I wanted out of our trip to Spain, listened carefully to our needs, and came up with a perfect itinerary just for us. We couldn’t be happier with the results and can’t wait to go back time and again. When we do, we will be sure to use Spain by Design!”

“You Made My Trip!”

“I can’t recommend Melissa at Spain By Design more enthusiastically! She was instrumental in my having a successful train journey from Barcelona to Lisbon. She was quick to respond and incredibly generous with her help. She knows Spain and tourism very well and I highly recommend her!”

That is how we would describe the process of planning our trip to Spain with Melissa. We simply shared some of the activities that we wanted to do while on our trip and that was all she needed. Before we knew it, Melissa provided us with a perfect itinerary – complete with all the contact info, travel time in-between stops, and confirmation of all excursions that were booked. To say this process was stress-free would be an understatement. Take all the work out of planning a trip and let Melissa plan it for you. You definitely won’t regret it. Thank you, Melissa – you gave us a trip of a lifetime. We look forward to working with you in the future.

“Could not have been more impressed”

Our trip to Spain was absolutely amazing and beautiful. We had no issues and felt well taken care of throughout the entire trip. I suppose I could have planned all this myself (or tried), but I would have been worried about all the details of trip and if the resort was appropriate or not.  Melissa took all the worry away and let me simply enjoy the trip.  I recommend this option 100 times over. –

“She treated us as if we were her only clients”

My fiancé and I had such a wonderful experience in planning our honeymoon with Melissa. Not only did she have us super excited about our destination, but the amazing trip she planned fit our budget! She treated us as if we were her only clients and I can honestly say, her genuine love for travel, people & adventure makes her the only person I’d trust to plan a trip as special as our honeymoon! I cannot wait to book our next trip with her.
