Our Team

Ramon Ramirez


Spanish born, Ramon has over 20 years experience running tour operations in the UK, specialising in tour programming and management, travel products selection, incentive travel, conference and event organisation. Coming from a winemaking family in Rioja, his passion for wine and gastronomy, his desire to share the hidden treasures of his motherland, his extensive contacts in the travel and wine industry and his true enjoyment of making travellers happy has persuaded him to create The Unique Traveller.

After carefully planned research and exhaustive consultation with former and potential corporate and personal clients, Ramon decided to launch a private tours company merging wine, gastronomy, nature and cultural travel experiences. The Unique Traveller has been established with 3 clear aims: value for money, innovation and personalised service.

In order to achieve The Unique Traveller objectives a professional team has been formed including:
