Slow Tourism philosophy
We, at Monterrasol Travel, practice the Slow Tourism concept. That means that we work our tours at a pace that allows to our clients have a more authentic experience and a true exploring of each destination that features in our itineraries.
We dismiss the stress, the rush, the tight schedules and the crazy running from spot to spot, usually related to bus travel package tours for large groups (charter bus trips).
Our philosophy is to accept a slow pace as the norm for undertaking leisure travel activities that feature in our catalog. Only that way you will see beyond tourism and start to have a real traveler experience instead of a plain touristic one.
We want to provide to our clients a more authentic side of the destinations we promote, with a centralized focus on the culture, architecture, history, art and nature that will allow to our clients truly discover and feel each visited place, in a relaxed way, having time to enjoy each impressive site that is in front of their eyes and calmly enjoy the surroundings and vibe.
Applying the Slow Tourism concept give you a way of travelling which encourages learning and a being mindful during our travels. This way you will delight in the authenticity of each destination and find experiences that allow the trip to unfold spontaneously.
The Slow Tourism helps you spend your time to the fullest, embracing new experiences and knowledge.
Does it make sense to get to know a lot of destinations in a short time, rushing every single day in each sight and place of interest?
In our company, the objective is that our clients find real and authentic situations during our travels. The goal is to get to know the real side of a destination. The key here is to understand that faster is not always better, especially related to travel.
For us, according to our travel philosophy and since time is key when planning a trip, it is essential to manage the right rhythm in a way that you get to know the selected destinations deeper and better.
This means that depending on the amount of time you have available for taking a tour, we have designed the right number of destinations to discover per day. That guarantee you will have the proper time to visit each one. You will have enough time to wander around these wonderful places truly enjoying its atmosphere, its food and its traditions in a most comprehensive manner.

The slow traveller has a more intense experience of the travel than the regular tourist. The person creates richer bonds and memories not only with the place but also with the culture.
In conclusion, slow down, experience the destination and live it. Do not just be another tourist visiting. As you already understood by now, there is a huge difference between visiting a country and living it.
