Since 1999, Letango has provided well planned trips to Spain and Portugal customised to the traveler expectations. A licensed local agency located in Raleigh, NC, Letango Tours is a family operated business with direct connections to Spain. They thrive on providing a high level of expertise and exceptional private itineraries, including inspiring guided tours that their discerning customers demand. Having been based in Madrid for 17 years, Letango founders have many advantages over most travel agencies. They have first hand knowledge of the environment, history and lay of the land. This is extremely helpful when communicating with hotels, guides and providing recommendations.
Always looking to improve the experience for travelers, owners, Carlos Galvin and Jennifer Yglesias frequently research new destinations, experiences and hotels in an effort to expose their customers to the very best that Spain and Portugal have to offer.
Letango Owners, Carlos Galvin and Jennifer Yglesias, make a great Spanish American team.
