The Heritage Tour – Andalucian Routes is proud of our Heritage tour which we developed and started back in 2010. Islamic history is full of stories where people travelled to sit at the feet of scholars to gain knowledge. We wanted to revive this tradition where it would be possible to actually travel with a scholar and discover lost history and take lessons in order to connect with your heritage and spiritual self. The Heritage Tour has been described in many ways from being a ‘mini Umrah’ or ‘life changing journey’ and ‘Once in a lifetime experience’.
The Heritage Tour is a completely unique experience where we combine travel, history & knowledge. This is achieved by traveling and experiencing unique Islamic historical sites in Spain, Morocco and Turkey. With in depth information from expert guides during excursion to site visits and then reinforced with interactive presentations by our travelling Scholar. When were in the selection process of who the right scholar would be, one name stood out from the rest. Shaykh Abdullah Hakim Quick:
