DISCOVER THE GOLDEN AGE CITIES OF AL-ANDALUS
The model of cities with stable environments, where men of different sciences were commissioned to study and develop the different sciences, had already brought a cultural revolution in the East. Cities such as Damascus and Baghdad collected and further developed several elements taken from the Byzantine, Persian, Hindus and Chinese civilizations, integrating them within the Islamic holistic approach to knowledge. Further, the wise Hispaniola-Muslims, strongly influenced by this Eastern Revolution, also studied the ancient Greek philosophical work. New ways to sail at sea were opened by the development of the compass, new methods of irrigation for the fields where introduced and paper was manufactured towards books of science.
The Medina, city in Arabic, had defensive towers, with optical communication systems and offered its inhabitants protection in times of war. The main streets of the medina where born at the doors of the city walls and were turned into stoned roads. The rest of the city where a labyrinth of little alleyways. These cities, both small and large, created stable environments where scholars in the different sciences would gather to share and further develop their studies. Large cities had sewerage systems for dirty water, public fountains with drinkable water and numerous baths. There where also funduqs or guest houses for the caravans which brought diverse merchandises to the town, coming from the farmlands, other cities or diverse foreign countries.
Our aim is to deliver excellence in travel, keeping your choice and best experiences in mind.

AL-ANDALUS EXPERIENCEDiscover the Secrets of Muslim Spain
We specialise in planning & providing exclusive incoming tours and unique experiences in Spain. Ten years of all sized group tours beyond Andalusia, our local region in Spain, several times a month, allow us to plan and perform group tours to any schedule at best standards. Being a specialised incoming local travel agent also grants us best rates.
“- We set out in 2007, to uphold and share the legacy of Al-Andalus, covering a culture gap present in Europe, through travel and cultural events."
To join any of our history, culture & leisure tours, study trips, workshops or city activities and events is to share a unique journey into Islamic heritage, infused with Iberian tradition & roots.
Discover the origin, rise, and fall of Islam in Al-Andalus in full detail, as researched and accounted by modern, independent unbiased researchers as well as our own privileged local insight.
” – The core of our team is composed of first and second generation European Muslim which implies a natural gift for us of acting as a bridge, to cover a relevant culture gap present nowadays between Western and Islamic Culture.”
” – We enjoy sharing a unique vision as locals of our Islamic heritage, taking us beyond our own time into the Islamic Golden Age of Al-Andalus, a time of a cultural fusion & revolution that emerged over this very Spanish soil. We also cover you with expertise over a wide range of interests & needs while you are with us, bringing the history into its own place in today’s Spain. Frequently, however, we act as silent shepherd assistants for teachers, scholars & celebrated personalities during their study trips, with very interesting group participants, from all over the world.”
For you to have a clear picture of your tour service choices that we provide within our ‘Travel Plans’ and how to go about extending these plans into your own custom trip, we present a quick reference guide to our service choices below.
ARE HOTELS INCLUDED?
By “rule of thumb”, whenever we offer a set date toward a multi-day tour, hotels will be included. However, when you are given a choice to select your own tour dates for any service, within our private tour options, the hotels will only be included if you choose so via our Custom Private Tour Service Form. We need to offer manually unless you find a session within our Regular Group Tour Offer section that matches your ‘Travel Plan’ and prefered tour dates. Within 24-48h hours we will send you your custom Travel Plan and Choice Options to measure, with a keen discount code for you to confirm any added specific City Plans before you travel.
HOW DO WE BOOK FOR A LARGE GROUP?
Choices are given to plan any tour for any group size in our Custom Private Tour Service Form we will respond usually within 24-48 h with an initial detailed travel plan and quotation completely ready for you to confirm all bookings or make any convenient changes before booking.
HOW DO WE BOOK FOR A SMALLER & COZY GROUP?
Choices are given to plan any tour for any group size in our Custom Private Tour Form we, simply choose the ‘Courtesy Economy’ option available for groups under 6 total participants. We will respond usually within 24-48 h with an initial detailed travel plan and quotation completely ready for you to confirm all bookings or make any convenient changes before booking.
CAN A SMALLER GROUP JOIN A LARGER GROUP?
Yes, you may book any number of travellers into our ‘Regular Group Tour Offer’ and thereby be joining onto a larger group to our own agenda. Once the group is confirmed at a minimum 15 participants, we are all set and can confirm. Private initiatives towards schedule tour dates are more than welcome, just send us a quick email and we will schedule a new tour onto our Regular Group Tour agenda with your group as the first registrants. In case of not meeting the minimum group size, we can always study alternative independent plans or a ‘Courtesy Economy Tour’ alternative option for registered participants to book instead.
WHAT IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE CHOICE OFFER?
The final group size accessing any service will normally determine the overall cost per person factored over of a series of shared elements provided towards our group service performance. Also in services consumed per person such as meals or hotel rooms, we obtain group rates from a group size of 20 upwards, negotiable down to 15 hence our minimum Regular Group Tour Offer offer minimum group size. If you are less than 15 persons this will always be your best offer to adhere to in hope of it being confirmed at 15 participants or over. However, if this does not line up to your chosen dates or booking/travel style, we offer a ‘Custom Private Travel Plan Choice’ tour option which you may also book as an entirely Independent Travel Plan by confirming only our Hotel Package Offer which we will send you through our Custom Private Tour
