Tariq Mahmood has fast become Spain’s most popular tour guide. As a specialist on Islamic Spain his knowledge, passion and drive make him a highlight in it’s own right. The story of Islamic Spain is about the rise and fall and one that has been missed out of history books. Therefore it requires a special story teller to make the history come alive.
Due to his success in the tourism industry, Tariq frequently offers advice and consultancy on becoming more halal friendly to Tour Companies, Hotels, Restaurants and the likes of tourism boards and Halal monitoring committees, in what is now seen to be a booming sector within the travel industry. Tariq spear-headed the first ever Halal tourism conference in September 2014 which was a massive success and re-affirmed him as one of the leading advisors and specialists in Halal tourism. Andalucian routes is now established around the world as one of the leading Halal friendly tour operators in Spain and is known for its unique style of tours which is evident through their portfolio of positive feedback mainly down to Tariq and his vision to make the tours a unique experience for travellers rather than a regular tour.
