Excellent tour of the Refugios below the streets of Almeria

This was a fascinating tour of the underground ‘refugios’ that were built and used during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. Emilio gave us fascinating background information as we walked along under the streets of Almeria. He then gave us an additional tour above-ground, showing us yet more historical locations that were connected to that struggle. His commentary (in excellent English) brought to life the pain and fortitude of Almeria’s people during that time.
This was a great tour and we highly recommend Emilio for anyone visiting Almeria!

I’ve been in contact with Raizes Turismo Personal through two touristic excursions. The first one was to Cabo de Gata with a team of professors. And the second one was a visit to Almeria city with friends from different countries. In the both experiences, the guide was the same (Emilio), but his way of telling things was totally different. I found him creative and knows how to manage each situation.
For me, what distinguishes them from others, besides being professionals and conveying their passion, is the fact of taking into consideration the background of each client.
