You have the ability to design the trip of your dreams, alongside an experienced tour guide.

Whether it’s time spent in large cities or exploring villages off the beaten track (or a combination of both), we can create an itinerary that is uniquely yours and allows you to delve deeper into the food, wine and culture of the places you visit.

We will also work within your budget to tailor make an unforgettable experience whilst still offering the best accommodation, transport and service. 


When you travel with Stay Eat Explore, you travel with me.


My name is Carlos Sanchez (yes, really!) and I am a Spanish/Australian who has worked within the tourism and travel industry for nearly 20 years.

I am the founder and owner of Stay Eat Explore. I take great pride in making sure that each trip and each traveller leaves with not only great memories, but a better understanding and appreciation of Spanish culture.

Whether it be food, wine, history, art, beaches or a combination of all of these we can incorporate as many of your interests into your trip to ensure you see and do it all.

It is my job to create the trip of a lifetime for you.


Orientation Walk & Culture

See spain/portugal by foot

Each city we visit will include a detailed Orientation Walk that will provide you with the comfort of getting your bearings and allow you to explore on your own when you have some free time.

The walks are always interesting and include anecdotes and stories that will give you a greater insight into the culture and nuances of each city. 

A detailed map is included to give you peace of mind and allow you to experience the cities like a local! 


Authentic Food & Wine

indulge in amazing local finds

Just like a local family, as a smaller group we can fit into those cute little bars the bigger groups couldn’t dream of walking into!

Thus giving you a far more authentic and unique experience. Let me order for you and you sit back and enjoy the atmosphere only a small and local bar can offer.


Incredible Restaurants & Bars

experience the best spain/PORTUGAL has to offer

When it comes to good food, some of the best restaurants, like the quaint bars, can only accommodate a small number of people.

We have the ability to dine in restaurants only the locals know and love. We also have the flexibility to enjoy Michelin star restaurants if you want to experience the world’s best cuisine. Having full control of the dates and times allows you to indulge at the restaurants you have heard about and always wanted to visit.


Quality Accommodation

ACCOMMODATION that ticks all your boxes

Have you ever wanted to stay in an old castle? Or experience something more rustic like a homestay in the Pyrenees? Perhaps modern comforts are more your style?

The ability to choose accommodation that suits your personal taste, budget and location allows you to make the most of every minute, soaking up the stunning views and sites that Spain and Portugal have to offer.
