She is a professional actress, graduated from the Royal Superior School of Performing Arts of Madrid and has been working in several plays and tours around Spain and other countries.
She has combined her artistic career with teaching English to children and young adults. She is in love with Seville and Spain in general, and understands well the cross-cultural experience.

Luis Fidel Acosta
Site Coordinator, Cuba
Luis Fidel Acosta is an educator and holds a Master´s degree in Historical Sciences. He works as a professor of Cuban History at the University of Havana. Teaching has always been his passion, either in front of a classroom full of students, or with a group of visitors eager to learn more about the history, culture and traditions of Cuba.
He has been working as a tour guide since approximately 2017, while continuing his job as a university professor. He has taken several courses related to Cuban historical-cultural heritage, ecology and environment. He likes to share and exchange ideas, experiences and knowledge with people from all places and countries.
Site Coordinator, Cuba
Dalila was born in Havana, Cuba. She has a degree in Economics by the University of Havana, even though she has been working mainly in Tourism. She has been studying English since she was a teenager as well as Italian, which she chose as her third language in school.
Her work in the hospitality sector has made her improve her English greatly. She has worked at Students Across Programs for four years. She loves touring the country, meeting new people and engaging with them. And of course, she knows the secrets of the city of Havana very well.
The hotels chosen, city guides and tours, visits to museums, choice of restaurants, and other cultural activities have all represented meaningful, oftentimes life-changing experiences for all, giving our students direct exposure to some of the realities and cultural richness Spain has been famous for."
We consider Alandis to be our expert partner in the South of Spain, and know that we and our participants are always guaranteed a rapid, professional and friendly service.
Road Scholar travelers are “lifelong learners” from all over the US and Canada, who have very specific educational and cultural requirements whilst “on the road”. We can be sure that all staff at Alandis Travel meet their needs ---from the wonderfully innovative Spanish teaching staff who give classes on our 6-week Living and Learning programs, to the pastoral care and superb attention to detail provided by Eugenia López and colleagues at the language centre, the top-notch Group Leaders who lead programs around Spain, and the carefully selected lecturers who present information in a fun yet educational way, we know that Road Scholar participants are always in excellent hands."
I used Alandis Travel in Sevilla this March 2022 for my large group to go to Ronda for a day. Alandis was extremely flexible about our needs. In Spain, drivers do not like to drop people in two different places and I requested to drop whoever wanted to stay back at our hotel in Sevilla, and another stop for those who wanted to visit Plaza de España, a visit many of our students wanted to do on our last night.
We were given a very comfortable bus, a driver who was extremely courteous and they found us a very knowledgeable tour guide in Ronda to take us around.
It has been a pleasure to work with the owners of Alandis. They certainly do and will do whatever it takes to please customers and for a very good and reasonable price. They even prepared, as we requested, a lunch bag in order not to waste time in Ronda going to a restaurant.
I will continue using this company for all my educational and personal excursions and I highly recommend it.
