Madrid, Cordoba & Granada Muslim Tour

An amazing 5 day Andalusia tour with Ahmad from Ilim Tour. Ahmad, our tour guide, gave us (myself and my 2 teenage children aged 16 and 18) in-depth information about each of the sites we visited in Cordoba, Seville and Granada and modified our tour to suit the interests of me and my teens (e.g we hiked near Alhambra and also looked at some of the works of the professional grafitti artists around Granada since my daughter loves contemporary street art).
Ahmad had an easy going personality which was perfect for our group. He was also considerate, always asking if we wanted to walk or take the car to the next site. There was no hassle trying to find good food in a new country, as Ahmad not only knew all the halal restaurants, but which ones specialised in which types of food. We were always offered at least 2 options for restaurants for lunch and dinner. Ahmad also knew where all the mosques where (mosques are not easy to find in contemporary Spain), and set aside time in the program for salah.
Yasin was our guide for Alhambra. His passion for the palace and it’s Islamic history as well as his knowledge of Arabic, art and history brought this beautiful palace to life.
In conclusion, great food, considerate tour guides and awe-inspiring sites.
We would love to book another tour in future with the wonderful Ilim Tour guides.

Alhambra Muslim Tour & Ticket

I cannot recommend Yasin and these tours enough! We had the pleasure of doing a guided tour of the Alhambra, and our guide made the experience way more than we expected. He was knowledgeable, patient and passionate. I mostly appreciated that he was flexible and went out of his way to help with bookings etc until the last minute.
If you want an in depth description of the Islamic influence and significance of the Alhambra, this is the perfect tour for you.

Very well arranged ! Our guide and driver Yasin was very efficient and punctual. He was very accommodating to our needs and a safe and excellent driver. His planning covered everything we wanted to see. He made our trip very enjoyable and comfortable. He also added a personal touch by taking us to a friend’s farm where we had delicious home cooked food and warm hospitality.

My wife planned for a private Muslim tour from Madrid to Malaga in February 2017. She engaged Ilim and coordinated the plans with Yasin. Although it is technically still winter, the weather was just splendid when we were there. Alhamdulillah.
The whole tour with Ilim was just great Subhanallah Alhamdulillah. Ahmad Bennatia met us at the airport and drove to the various locations based on what we wanted to see and do and energy level. It was great and memorable. The meals were just fantastic too. Ahmad took us to locations and recommendations based on what we wanted to see and like. Mariam that guided us through AlHamra with another party that was excellent as well. Everyone was just very friendly, knowledgeable and understood and tailor made the tour to our preferences. I think this is the best way for tours. I have recommended our friends to Ilim.
TabarakaAllah.

We were husband and wife from Singapore and travelled to Spain and Morocco in May 2017. We have great time during our tour. Both Alaudin (Spain) and Faizal (Morocco) are excellent guides. Overall we were truly enjoyed and have wonderful time. Alaudin and Faisal were all friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable to their local area. They are resourceful and have good historical perspectives of places we visited which I think is very important to understand local context. They even acted as our personal assistant during our shopping trips, picking up us at hotels / airports and ferry terminals. They were caring and accommodating to our needs ( of elderly couple) during our long road journeys in Spain / Morocco. Alaudin is an excellent driver who knows the nooks of every places we visited in Spain. We were surprised that we were able to visit an olive orchard in Spain. This is the most memorable and unforgettable experience for us. In Morocco we have one Moroccan driver “Hasan” who is also courteous, helpful and skilled driver. The trip was organized in a very professional way from planning to implementation based on trust and prompt response. Highly recommended.

4 of us middle aged ladies from Singapore went for the Andalusian Muslim tour plus Barcelona in November 2016. We had engaged another agency prior to Ilim Tour but the response and planning was very slow. I contacted Yasin about 1 month before the tour. His response was very quick and could have been quicker if not for the time difference. Very impressive! The trip with our guide Alaudin was very memorable. We felt like we were family, mothers and son travelling together. Alaudin was very accomodating and gave us many extras eg. playing with the snow and making snow woman in the Sierra Nevada. He even became our imam during sholat. This trip will stay in our hearts for a very long time. We will highly recommend Ilm Tour to our family and friends. Thumbs up Ilm Tour!

Unearth the glory of Andalucia, its intricate history, its majestic architecture and delve into its downfall. History is to be understood and its lessons are to be learned and most importantly its mistakes are not to be repeated. Yasin's finesse in handling our trip is greatly laudable. When the trip ended, it felt like leaving a family member behind. May Ilimtour soar into greater heights!

Wow. Where do I begin? Bro Yasin is as professional a guide as they come and what better person to bring you around the sites and scenes than a local person. I booked the 7 days morocco and Spain tour. I went with my pregnant Wife and elderly in-laws. Yasin was very patient and accommodative to all of us. What a wonderful man and guide. Thank you, bro Yasin for Organising such a wonderful and memorable journey. Also, thank you for being patient with all of us. Guys, I highly recommend Yasin's tour agency. Top notch. Top drawer! You won't regret it.

Fantastic tour guide , an eye opener .Yassin is very accommodative to the needs of my family, patience and professional. The tour organizers, provide excellent service too. We were shown some rare historical sites, that have links to golden period of Islamic Civilisations . Yassin has excellent knowledge of Islamic history ,social, economic and scientific developments spanning from Morocco to Southern Spain. I would definitely use his service in the near future and strongly recommends those interested to know about the golden period of Islamic Civilisations in Europe and scientific discoveries brought about by Arabs in Andalusia. Friendly service, I was even entertained with a round of Golf!
