Emilia Sánchez-Pantoja Belenguer – CEO

We are a responsible travel agency which understands that tourism is a powerful industry, able to transform society. Due to its economic and social impact, as well as its environmental impact, tourism development can be a positive growth engine for a community or, on the contrary, it can be the end of its natural resources and its way of life.

We want to scale to find partners in other countries with our same philosophy to extend our offer and improve our service.
