The culture of water, joined together with the development of agriculture have made this territory a unique place that left their marks.

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.

We did a tour of the refugios with Emilio and his team and it was amazing! They are knowledgeable, friendly, adaptable, and fully bilingual. In addition to giving insights and historical context, he connected it with the city’s present architecture and imbued a difficult topic of war with uplifting themes. Definitely a one of a kind experience and the best way to discover Almería’s landmarks. Don’t miss out on this amazing tour company!
