Raquel Ferriol

All of my life, I have been dreaming of travelling around the world, Knowing different people, languages and cultures, visiting those fascinating places that I had read about in books, and that waited for me out there, with a treasure of wisdom, knowledge, diversity, awe and adventure...

I have been fortunate enough to get to live my dream; I still approach every new city that I visit with the same fascination and wonder that I felt the first time that I left my hometown, and that is the sensation that I wish to communicate to our customers. There is a treasure waiting for you in Spain, and I would be honored to help you find it.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I'm a big foodie, so I love organizing gastronomic experiences- food and wine tours, cooking classes, farm to table... but I think that we truly do best is listening- the first step for a truly unforgettable trip is finding out what your travellers are looking for, and then working on the experience of their lives!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Travel was not my first professional interest, but it has always been one of my passions-I and I was fortunate enough to have both the knowledge and the contacts to turn it in a viable career option. I followed my dream and it came true, who can ask for more?"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"So many... I remember spending a whole afternoon just chatting with an elder lady who had a stall at Ismailovo's market in Moscow- I was maybe sixteen at that time and she was over 70- I spoke very little Russian and she spoke no Spanish and very little English- and yet it was one of the best aftenoons I've ever lived.
I remember equally interesting conversations with my driver-guide during the month I spent in India, or my guide in Kenya... I guess travelling for me is much more about the people you meet than about the places that you visit."
