About us

Worlds of Spain, Inc. was originally created with the intention of offering  affordable educational programs to students interested in learning Spanish while enjoying and experiencing the Spanish culture.  Responding to a demand for specialize tours, we began with the Adventure programs to provide travelers unique tours with an amazing quality without the price tag that this kind of programs usually requires.
