Optional extra travel services can be arranged to obtain the benefit of our guides under any circumstances or you can hop-on and off from our 'City Guided Tours & Activities' at each location as you go, which allows for more lengthy personal and independent travel plans.

REQUEST BEST HOTEL OFFER
With the innovative tendency towards hotel booking automation, prices provided by most European hotels are today 'dynamic', according to real-time booking demand for each particular location and hotel. For an organisation like ours based on our own local service & time as our prime capital, it is hard and expensive to keep up with this all. We can take in any specific hotel request and grant best market rates, but this will be via 24-48 h manual process. We can also price match hotels before you confirm, should you want us to deal with your package as a whole. Our bonus digital Travel Plan App will centralise all of your bookings and documents for your trip to be well managed on a day per day basis until it's end.

EMINENT CITIES OF AL-ANDALUS
& IBERIA TODAY
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 itself 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.
