Fully serviced tours in Andalusia for any group size.

We offer tours, workshops and events for the world to come and revive the heritage and traditions of al-Andalus.

An encounter with the historical paradoxes in Muslim Spain. An exclusive insight from the very first generation of Spanish Muslims since the fall of al-Andalus, seeking for an unbiased and objective historical picture of al-Andalus. Based upon the official historical version and further researches from independent and unbiased professors and experts on the matter we have produced a print edition ‘Booklet Guide of al-Andalus’ summarising the main points which will lead you to a complete comprehension of the Islamic period in Spain and the specific importance of the cities and sites visited along our tours. The tours count with a specialist tour conductor from our organization and local official guides for monuments in the different towns.

Our first program is an ‘express tour’ covering the main towns and provinces of al-Andalus. The 5 day program is quite intense though travellers can make use of their evening time in each location at will. For an itinerary at a more relaxed pace, with time for shopping and free walks or entertainment please check our 7 night tour. As a more ‘exotic’ plan, we offer a 5 night taster of Morocco and for those who want it all there is a combined al-Andalus and al-Maghreb program of 12-14 nights, visiting Andalusian and Moroccan main towns and digging out their history.

For those who want to go deeper into specific areas of interest within the history of al-Andalus, we offer tour extensions on different topics including the expulsion of the Moriscos, final Muslims in Spain after 1492 and Spirituality and Scholars of al-Andalus and al-Maghreb, with a study case of Ibn Arabi.

Our tours are available all year around, though the best time to enjoy them under the good Spanish weather is March to June or September to December. Rain is unpredictable but in any case it rarely rains for over -2 days running in this part of Spain. Most rain falls during October, November, April & May). January and February are rather cold (0-12ºC) July and August can also provide a very nice stay if you have a fresh & shady interior room, courtyard ‘patio’ or or A/C Apartment to enjoy your regular indoor activities during the hottest part of the day. You can adopt the local tradition of a large midday meal and later ‘siesta’, in any case the activity should be indoor from around 15h to 19h.
