Spain is the land of bullfights, everlasting sun, flamenco, Gaudi, tapas, Madrid and Barcelona. It is the home of the World soccer champions, incredible beaches and lunches that only begin at 2pm. It is an alluring land, and a paradise for family holidays. For family excursions, Spain has 42 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, ranging from magnificent ancient rock art to medieval old cities to the exuberant architecture of Gaudi.

Imagine being guided through the maze of tapas dishes by a local food specialist, or taking the family on an amazing motorcycle sidecar trip through the streets of Barcelona. What about a scavenger hunt while exploring the great Prado Museum, learning to dance the flamenco and painting hand made Andalusian tiles?
