PRIVATE COLLABORATOR AREA

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF MUSLIM SPAIN

Thank you for accessing our administration work and central online information collaborator hub area. Below you will find the same information as we have on our main page, with reference prices to a medium group size, 15 pax. It is best to contact me directly to know about our discount and collaborator sale schemes for each tour section. There are different cost arrangements made in the different categories to come up with the final price reflected on-line.  Our promotion tours scheduled to specific dates, provide a 10% commercial margin, with the challenge of a minimum group size 20 pax before it can be confirmed, this should be a joint effort from all of our commercial partners and channels.


For these ‘Promotion Tours’ to go ahead we really need some dedicated promotion managers, to get the word around, offering this package to different areas, institutions or collectives. Once we do confirm a first 15-20 participants (pax) on any date, we will open the bookings to all possible commercial channerls, in order to achieve a larger group and enhance the cost performance. The ‘Promotion Tours’ are also extensible and  can be modulated to join onto other ‘City Escapes’ or private trip extensions.

All other private and closed group tours you get us in touch with, will provide you with a 3-5€ fee per traveller, per night. This fee will begin at 3 and may be risen to 5 depending on specific booking conditions, low specific hotel offers, as with the volume of groups you are confirming per season.


We finally we have our most simple service line which is the independent tour section, we will do our best at optimising the costs to provide 3-5€ traveller day commercial margin/share for you as our commercial partners or representatives.


On a last note, if you are resident in any main city or rural area of Spain, Portugal or Morocco, please do consider the opportunity of being our local city representative, along with product developer in your area. This will be a two step collaboration scheme whereby you source and deal with providers in your area to create packages, excursions and daily activities, which we can then offer to our public.


Please do contact our main administration post admin@alandalus-experience.com for any further information or thing you need from us towards contacting or taking up new orders for tours. I am personally available by google chat to zaruqsummers@gmail.com or by phone to +34622236421. This area will be updated gradually to include all options. Thank you. Salaam.


ABOUT US & OUR OFFER

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF MUSLIM SPAIN

Visit Andalusia and Spain, by the hand of first and second generation Muslims in Andalusia. We deliver best value group tours, routes & experiences to share along with other travelers from a worldwide origin, or privately at your own pace and style.

The mystery surrounding Islam’s introduction to Spain is one echoed by many historians. It is openly acknowledged that much of Al-Andalus’ history has been either hidden or re-written in the wake of the Spanish Inquisition. This lack of historical transparency continues to inspire researchers, historians, and local enthusiasts to investigate and reveal the area’s rich yet shrouded history.

Al-Andalus Experience originally emerged partly due to the lack of a service that goes about solving logistic problems for Muslim travelers in Spain. A great part of our team and collaborators are of Muslim faith and religion, hence we appreciate the needs and interests of Muslim travelers. In spite of this, we would like to offer our tours, activities and excursions to an intercultural public, such as the one which originally inhabited al-Andalus, hence fulfilling our aim to be a ‘Cultural Bridge’ throughout lifetime experiences in Spain.

  • Scheduled Tour dates:

The price above is a promotional price towards uniting efforts in establishing regular, large open groups to set dates.

The price starts and remains at the cost of a 20 pax group size. The terms it will be listed as a 20 pax minimum grup size, below which we will either have to cancel or imcrease the cost, which is not good; actually we will conduct the tour with a minimmum of 15 pax, resulting in no commercial profit on the tour. Since it is never desireable to cancel a tour, we will carry out at a minimmum of 15 pax in spite of only covering the basic cost. The idea is that between us and our sale partners and collaborators acting in different locations, we can get a minimum of 20 pax. From here, incentivation grows as the total group size does, so the sales comission per traveller increases as the total group size grows, no matter who brings in more or less people, the value of each new passenger increases as listed in the column to the left. The red figures indicate the sales margin we are ready to distribute directly to the sales agent per each pax. So if you have any loose travellers please ask them to join on to these group deals as this will be best for them, we will offer you in exchange a sales commission or discount according to the final group size established.

  • Closed Group Request:

If however what you have is a closed group, interested in booking for a whole 15, 20, 30 or however many pax required, we can quote using bottom line cost figure to the right. The price includes 50€ discount or sales commission for you to negotiate under which is the bottom line cost of our tour; you may increase the price at will to your own benefit, though it is not advisable to make it too expensive.

  • Private Tour Request:

We are still developing the Free Independent Travel packages, which are to be offered in conjunction with optional travel services, in order for our clients to choose to what standard they want to bring their tour up to. So far what we can do in these cases is facilitate all of the bookings and increase the final package price by a small ammount per day and traveler or group, which we will arrange and distribute on a per booking basis.

 Ayer se me agrietó el corazón de forma importante; dejando pasar el ser interno más profundo a este mundo. Pude ver a todos los humanos como iguales, ante la responsabilidad de saber vivir y sacar lo mejor de nosotros mismos; pude ver que siempre han habido personas perdidas de sigo mismas y poseídas por el enfado o cualquier injusticia que quieren ajusticiar a través de violencia injustificable, pude ver personas orgullosas cada cual de sus banderas e insignias, y pude ver políticos ondeando banderas e insignias típicas del Siglo XVI; pero ante todo pude ver #amor por las personas fallecidas y todas la personas de buena voluntad, confundidas y asustadas, todas las personas que SI valoran a diario la vida y personas ajenas; las personas que tratamos solamente de #vivir una #vida #digna de las bendiciones que nos ofrece la misma vida. #somosunasolavida #unsolocorazon #aunquenolosepamos #otracosaesperderse #barcelonatambienestaenmi #amobarcelona  #Goodmorning #selamatpagi ! #Welcome #selamatdatang #flyworldtravelntours Perhaps our favorite #Malay#TO  Saying hi from #Sevilla! #lasvueltasdanmuchavida
 818: El emir Al-Hakam reprime la revuelta del Arrabal El 25 de marzo de 818 el emir Al-Hakam reprimió con violencia una de las muchas revueltas a las que se había acostumbrado su reinado, esta vez en el Arrabal de Córdoba. El Arrabal de Córdoba era una zona densamente poblada que había crecido al otro lado del río Guadalquivir a raíz del puente construido por Hisham I. Convivía en esta zona gente muy pobre con una minoría de alfaquíes malekitas que trabajaban como maestros de escuela. Los alfaquíes eran intérpretes de las leyes, lo que en el mundo musulmán significa ser jurista y a la vez teólogo, y los de Córdoba habían sido además asesores palaciegos en tiempos de Hisham I. Defenestrados por Al-Hakam y en un entorno en el que era fácil rentabilizar descontentos, los alfaquíes del Arrabal vertieron su propaganda sobre sus vecinos, culpando al emir de excederse en los tributos, alejarse de la ortodoxia religiosa y actuar como un déspota. La llama prendió en el año 805 y el emir tuvo que ejecutar a 72 personas, entre ellas algunos notables alfaquíes. Sobre estas brasas nunca apagadas se fraguó la revuelta de 818. Encendió la mecha la muerte en el zoco de un armero a manos de un mameluco de la guardia personal del emir. El barrio se levantó en armas y marchó hacia el palacio del emir. Éste mandó a sus hombres arrasar el Arrabal e incendiarlo y la muchedumbre, al ver arder sus casas, marchó a salvar lo que pudiera. A la salida del puente les esperaba, cimitarra en mano, la guardia del emir. La represalia fue atroz y Al-Hakam ordenó crucificar boca abajo a más de 300 cabecillas. De los supervivientes, un gran número decidió salir de la Península y olvidar lo sucedido en mejores tierras. Algunos se asentaron en Fez, pero otro grupo llegó hasta Alejandría, ciudad que llegaron a ... leer más: blogs.libertaddigital.com  #celebratingmercy #stopislamophobia Hong-Wu (also known by his given name Zhū Yuánzhāng) was the Emperor of China between 1368 – 1398 CE. He was the first Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, leading an Army that conquered the country and defeated away the Mongol-led Yuan Dynasty. Despite being a non-Muslim, Hong-Wu ordered the construction of several mosques in Nanjing, Yunnan, Guangdong and Fujian. He rebuilt the Jinjue Mosque in Nanjing and large numbers of Hui (Muslim Chinese) people moved to the city during his rule. He had around 10 Muslim generals in his army, including Chang Yuchun, Lan Yu, Ding Dexing, Mu Ying, Feng Sheng and Hu Dahai. In addition, Hong-Wu’s spouse, Empress Ma, descended from a Muslim family while he was originally a member of a Muslim rebel group led by Guo Zhixin. Emperor Hong-Wu wrote a 100 word eulogy praising Islam, Allah and the Prophet Muhammad which he had placed in the mosques which he ordered to be built. The eulogy is in the form of a poem, each verse containing 4 words (characters) and 4 syllables. In the translation below I have strayed away from trying to keep the 4 word per verse translation in favour of a more literal translation which conveys the full meaning in flowing English. The One-Hundred Word Eulogy: Since the creation of the Universe, God had decreed to appoint, This great faith-preaching man, From the West he was born, He received the Holy Scripture, A Book of thirty parts, To guide all creation, Master of all Rulers, Leader of Holy Ones, With Support from Above, To Protect His Nation, With five daily prayers, Silently hoping for peace, His heart towards Allah, Empowering the poor, Saving them from calamity, Seeing through the darkness, Pulling souls and spirits, Away from all wrongdoings, A Mercy to the Worlds, Traversing the ancient majestic path, Vanquishing away all evil, His Religion Pure and True, Muhammad, The Noble & Great one.  #selamatdatang #Malaysia! #Welcome to #Madrid, #Spain!
