Experience Roman Merida & Extremadura in the hands of an expert


Discover the fascinating roman city of Merida Spain on a custom private tour of Extremadura in the company of one of Totally Spain's expert local guides, such as Marco.

Marco, local patriot, has made his life where he was born: in the wild and stirring region of Extremadura. Passionately committed to explaining the region to visitors, he was educated at Extremadura University in Caceres - and at St Andrew's University in Scotland. Son of a tour guide, he is fully qualified as a professional and certified guide in the region of  Extremadura.

Marco is well versed in history, art and architecture and has a keen appreciation for issues of the present day. His expression is rich and delivered with intelligence and humour. As a keen linguist he is able to conduct tours not only in Spanish and English, but also in French and Portuguese. He is sensitive to the differing needs of each language group, to differing levels of appreciation and to each individual.  His authoritative responses to questions are delivered in his usual lively style and often passersby will observe his clients rocking with laughter.

With its remarkable history of; Romans, Arabs, Conquistadors and more,  Extremadura is one of the most delightful and impressive regions of the Iberian Peninsula. Rich in magnificent historical towns, cities and natural areas; the following patrimony of Extremadura has been recognised by UNESCO as Heritage of Mankind:

  • The entire historical quarter of Caceres
  • The historical centre of Merida
  • Monfrague National Park and Biosphere Reserve
  • The Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe
  • The World Geopark Villuercas-Ibores-Jara
  • The Tajo International Park a cross Border Biosphere Reserve

 

You only need to let your Totally Spain agent know and we can work an experience like this in to your itinerary, as part of your very own custom private tour in Spain and Portugal.
