Our Story

Past & Present

It was 1998 when Nigel Hack, a British history teacher with a thirst for travel found himself living in the heart of Spain's buzzy capital, Madrid. Put simply, Nigel fell in love with Spain and the idea for Madrid & Beyond was born! Nigel's passion was to share the real "insider's" Spain with discerning travelers. From humble beginnings Madrid & Beyond has grown into a highly reputed and respected company both within Spain and overseas.

We are very much a team, a team that has all contributed to making Madrid & Beyond the specialist travel company it is today. We all love traveling and all of us continue to travel extensively within Spain, visiting hotels, meeting expert guides, seeking new experiences, checking out restaurants and tapas bars and nurturing the special relationships we have with people all over the country. Only with this "inside out" knowledge pooled within our team can we provide the expertise that our travelers seek from us. Furthermore, your vacations in Spain are always underpinned by our experienced team's commitment to service.

We have stuck to our philosophy of customizing all trips and not trying to expand through ‘packages’. Indeed, Madrid & Beyond has grown without joining any marketing consortiums not harnessing representation in any country. All of our business to date has come from referrals and/or from travel companies we have met at the industry’s premium travel fairs, such as PURE, ILTM, ALTM, Travel Week Brazil & LE MIAMI. A special mention also goes to the travel agencies that belong to the Magellan group of Australia.

We are excited to announce that Madrid & Beyond has just opened up an office in New York (May 2014) with Jesse Lepow as Director of Sales. For all our collaborators and potential travelers in the US, your expert travel planner is just a ‘local’ call away. Feel free to call Jesse on 917 470 9460 or write to him at jesse@madridandbeyond.com Otherwise, our Spain office in Madrid is at your service!

Travel Spain with Madrid & Beyond and take away wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!
