AL-ANDALUS EXPERIENCE

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF MUSLIM SPAIN

Visit Andalusia and Spain, by the hand of first and second generation Muslims in Andalusia. We deliver the best value group tours, routes & experiences, 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 this particular rich yet ‘covered’ history.

Al-Andalus Experience originally emerged partly to a lack of service that goes into 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. In this way we  fulfill our aim as a travel agency in securing a ‘Cultural Bridge’ throughout these enriching experiences in Spain.

Travel back into the times of Al-Andalus & Iberia and staying within the Golden Age Cities of al-Andalus. Carefully planned travel routes, in a chronological order according to historical relevance, taking account for leisure and even shopping! Our routes invite you to discover the historical centers of the main cities in the heart of Al-Andalus.
