Who We Are

Yugen & Duende-Vive Andalucía is a theme-designed tour operator. Our goal is to have you experience Andalucía in a more personal and relaxed way, without rushing. We are Viqui Arbizu and Alfonso Duluc. We love life, people, and this beautiful planet; however, we absolutely love Spain, particularly Andalucía. Viqui is from Seville, Spain; Alfonso was born in Chicago, USA, of a Spanish mother. After experiencing life in different lands, professionally and on vacation, we decided to move to Spain, and we want to share Andalucía’s Yugen & Duende with you.

Our Name

Yugen & Duende are two words that explain the beautiful emotions that arouse inside of us. Yugen is a Japanese word that expresses the awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and powerful for words. Duende is a Spanish word that evokes the spirit that elicits physical/emotional responses; it is what gives us chills; makes us smile or cry when reacting to an artistic piece. That is what we do; we take you to places and people that will make you experience Yugen & Duende.
