Hola, my name is Iván Ricoy
I am a Travel Agent for Spain trips specialised in Andalusia, the Southern part of the country.
I was born and raised in Spain though I have British and Dutch ancestry too. Also, my path to becoming a Travel Agent for Spain trips was rather unconventional.
I started a career as a Telecom Engineer, which lasted for 10 years. During this decade I realised that my place in the world was as a Spain Travel Specialist.
How I became a Travel Agent for Spain trips
As an Engineer I lived in different parts of Spain, France, Germany and the U.K. I then learned how rewarding it is to experience and to learn about other places and other cultures. While living abroad I also loved being an ambassador of Spain.
This truly motivated me to start a professional transition from Engineer to Travel Agent for Spain Vacations. This transition finished in 2014. It was then when I launched my own specialist travel company for Southern Spain trips. I will never forget that day!
I called the company Genuine Andalusia and I’d like you to see us as your Travel Agency for Spain trips.
Also, I’d like to invite you to read about the creative process behind our name and our logo. This is because it reflects how your Spain Travel Agency was born as well as its values.
We are a specialist travel agency for Spain vacations based in Seville and Jerez.
We offer private bespoke trips of Southern Spain. Our main clients are couples, small groups and families visiting our homeland, who prefer to keep a local and respectful perspective away from mass tourism. We have also had some amazing solo travellers.
Our Andalusia custom private trips and vacations are a combination of:
- Selected private tours and experiences with knowledgeable, personable and warmhearted local hosts
- Private transportation services in modern and comfortable vehicles with impeccable drivers
- Accommodation in beautiful hand-picked hotels.
Our mission in the culture and travel sector as a Spain Travel Specialist
We truly believe that sharing the most beautiful and authentic aspects of our homeland with our guests generates understanding between different cultures and ultimately contributes to making a better world.
Our goal is to be one of the best travel agencies in Spain for discerning travellers from English-speaking countries.
