Why book through SPAINISH?
"... I can also find that hotel and a route on the internet myself?".
It is of course incredibly fun to plan your own journey.
But sometimes the road you saw on the map turns out to be totally unsuitable for cycling ...
Or hotels appear to be fully booked 'on the web', but actually there is still room for our guests.
Because we directly talk to the hotel management. As a plus, we arrange safe storage for our guests´bikes, and charging facilities for E-bikes for example.
And who do you call if something goes wrong while you are a beautiful -but remote- place?
You can rely on me and my local partners.
I am Richard van Kruchten, director of SPAINISH. Since 2008 I´ve been living in Valencia.
Through my work as a cameraman I discovered the most beautiful places in the inland. Untouched nature, tranquility, varied landscapes and special accommodations that were hardly known. From my personal fascination for this region, the language and culture , my travel agency 'SPAINISH' was born.
I have been organizing special trips for 5 years now, often tailor-made.
And I´m still discovering new places, because I remain active as a cameraman and drone pilot.
According to my Spanish friends, I now know the area better than they do;)
On the website of SPAINSH you will find a number of videos about the trips I organize.
These trips were created (and each time expanded and improved) on the basis of experiences with previous guests. The routes, the daily distances, the accommodations ... everything has now been 'extensively tested'.
Do you have other wishes or ideas? Let me know.
I like to tailor the trip; after all, it is yóur vacation.
Once the journey begins, you have your head and hands free to enjoy.
I am happy to take over the rest.
"... I have a little problem with my knee ... Can I still get an e-bike?"
"... Is there also an alternative route in case the weather is bad tomorrow? ..."
"... I forgot my medicines in the Netherlands. How do I get others now?"
"... my watch is still in the previous hotel room. What now?"
"... my dentures are broken. Who could fix them around here?"
These are just a few questions and situations from my daily practice.
Even when it comes to 'problems' that are not directly related to the trip, I often have the solution with a few phone calls. During the trip I am available for all kinds of questions. And if your bike breaks down, I'll get another one.
It is precisely in those kinds of details that the added value of SPAINISH lies .
Service in your own language, before and during the trip.
You can also find my trips in the catalog of a number of travel organizations in the Netherlands and Flanders.
Have fun figuring out your trip, and see you soon!
Also read the articles that have appeared in the press about our tours, including in Dagblad Trouw and 'de Vogelvrij Fietser', the magazine of the Fietsersbond.

Our group had a wonderfull holiday,9 days of walking and a trilling experience of cycling down the hill and on the old traintrack..Lovely views.very good guides and hotels, delicious food and a good caring Richard.. As I had some issues with my health he organised that we could do a part of the track by car..
Muchos gracias Richard Mia .From the "Vlaamse groep.Rosine"
We really recommend the cycling tour on Via Verde organized by Richard !!
It was great! A lot of nice and different landscapes, comfortable B&B and hotels with warm welcome, efficient assistance for bikes repairs, good tips, detailed road book and GPS provided on the bike... Everything was well organized: from the transfer Airport-Hotel by taxi to the picnic for lunch while cycling... We definitely enjoyed it.
Richard is a very good organizer; he prepared a taylor-made tour together with us as we only had 5 days in Spain. Moreover, during the trip he was never too far away (via WhatsApp or text message) to make sure that everything was OK for us...!
Thanks again Richard!

Bergen, dalen rotsen bruggen(tjes) tunnels, langs diepten, sinaasappelboomgaarden, bossen en dorpjes. Schitterende vergezichten.
Als je op je overnachtingsplek aankwam, was jou bagage reeds ter plekke. Prima overnachtingen!
