Join us

“The Department of Spanish and Portuguese (SPAP) at the University of Maryland, College Park, has been partnering with Spanish Studies/Alandis Travel for over 10 years under the leadership of our Department’s Chair, Dr. Eyda Merediz. In 2014, I was assigned to become the new Program Director for our undergraduate Winter Program in Seville, Spain.

I could not speak more highly of their professionalism and excellent customer service. They are problem solvers, pay attention to every detail on our schedule so our students can have the best cultural and academic experience possible, besides they are available 24/7. Every year every participant on the program raves about the well-rounded and knowledgeable tour guides, the overnight trip accommodations and the excellent transit to the sites visited. Our partnership has grown during these past seven years, even more so during the pandemic as we continue to work together for another successful program this Winter 2022. Because of their highly organized programs and travel offerings, other UMD departments have started to partner with Spanish Studies/Alandis Travel.

I highly recommend this company to any higher education organization, educator and/or individual planning an academic and cultural experience in Southern Spain or beyond.”
