Testimonials from educational institutions

????????????????????????????????????

"What I always liked about Alandis Travel is the great skill for adapting respect of any unforeseen event that may occur and how they have known to give solution.

Organizing study tours in Cuba is no easy task, especially when our customers have a high level of requirements. Alandis Travel has always given us a solution adapted to our necessities, rigorousness and themes for our tours, offering us a high quality service that's really difficult to find, given the circumstances in Cuba where political/logistical changes take place every day.

What's more I have always received close attention from the Alandis team, which makes me feel secure with our customers."

Rocío Haro

"Traveling overseas is stressful. Particularly if you are leading a group of young students who are full of expectations.

In these circumstances, putting your trust in a reliable company becomes the most important decision you make. I had the opportunity to lead three semester-long programs in Spain, and on all of them, Alandis Travel was in charge of organizing the logistics of the internal trips, with visits from Almería, Granada, and Madrid to Asturias and Salamanca. After many days traveling through Spain, visiting many cities, my groups were always extremely satisfied with hotels, restaurants, and activities.

Without the efficiency and knowledgeable tour guides provided by Alandis Travel, my experience as a program leader would not have been as memorable as it was. I cherished every minute."

"I have always been very impressed with the diligence and efficiency of the Alandis Travel team.

Every time I have requested a proposal, a price quote or suggestions for new cultural activities, the team has responded almost immediately with flexibility and creativity; this is very much appreciated from the client’s point of view. They also pay attention to detail. The itineraries are carefully crafted and there is always a “Plan B” if an activity gets cancelled for reasons beyond their control.

The team is very friendly and professional and I highly recommend their services without hesitation"

"I have been working with Alandis Travel for many years and I have always found the service and response to be excellent.

As a study abroad program we provide the student with a global experience both academically and culturally, and Alandis knows how to combine them professionally.

Each program or university we work with has different requirements or preferences and sometimes it is not easy to meet them but they always manage to tailor things to meet their needs.

I feel very secure working with Alandis Travel because I know that they will help us to create a great experience on each activity or trip. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."

El Departamento de Español y Portugués (SPAP) de la Universidad de Maryland, College Park, lleva más de 10 años colaborando con Spanish Studies/Alandis Travel bajo la dirección de la Dra. Eyda Merediz, presidenta de nuestro departamento.

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, and pay attention to every detail on our schedule so our students can have the best cultural and academic experience possible, besides being 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 Alandis Travel.

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

"I have been working with Alandis Travel for a long time and I can confirm without a doubt that our trips have been successful thanks to their service.

As a study abroad program with young students we need to find activities, destinations, and excursions according to their ages and interest. Alandis Travel has been always open to suggestions and requests and has made a tailor-made trip for every one of our groups.

Every time there has been a last-minute change they were able to find a solution and accommodate our needs. I feel safe and always in good hands when I need to organize a new trip with them and I cannot recommend them enough."
