Who we are

Forocio was founded in 1997 as an event agency for foreign students in Madrid. An important part of the service was to offer excursions and weekend trips to the most attractive cities in Spain.

Particularly for the students from North-, Latin- and Southamerica the travel offer was expanded by providing tours to the most important capitals in Europe such as Paris, London, Rome or Amsterdam. More collaboration followed with International Universities and Colleges from all over the world arranging their study tours in Spain and all over Europe.

Today after more than 20 years in the incoming tourism business we offer a wide range of tailor made group travel, especially to other travel agencies and tour operators from all over the world. Our partners appreciate and take advantage of our knowledge in all European destinations and most of them maintain a trustful collaboration with us for many years.
