Boutique Tour Operator
Princeton Travelers is focused on off-the-beaten-track culinary and cultural experience to Spain. Princeton Travelers is also a social enterprise committed to providing accessible travel to everyone. We are based in California with staff in San Diego and Valencia, Spain. All of our programs are led by Princeton Travelers staff from Valencia. This allows us to have control over the quality of our programs and to add unique experiences that would only be possible from having a local team.
