What to Expect

Explore in 16 seat mini-coaches, always taking the scenic route, you have great views through large windows, and you’re free to sample the local tipple without worrying about driving. Our driver-guides are famous for their knowledge, facts, quirky stories, history, and fairy-tales. They truly take you beyond the guidebooks and into your adventure. You make your trip your own. We provide the timetable; and you can choose where you want to eat and which attractions you pay to see. So, if you want to skip a castle and read your book by a mountain view, you can.

A good night’s sleep is often needed for a good day of travel. So we’ve hand-picked three-star to four-star hotels in remote coastal villages, bustling towns, and mountain valleys. Your accommodation is included in the tour price.

Most people can comfortably enjoy our tours, but it’s worth bearing in mind that we often include optional short walks in scenic locations. Please also be aware that many of the old European towns are built on steep hills with cobbled lanes, and you may have to carry your own luggage at times.

We’ve arranged experiences for you on your tour. The ‘included activities’ are already booked and paid for as part of your trip, whereas you can purchase ‘optional activities’ while on your tour. You also have free time in many destinations to pick and choose which attractions you visit.

Pack comfortable shoes for walks up to beautiful views. Carry swimwear and a towel for swimming spots. Your holiday’s more fun when you protect yourself from the sun.

Itinerary
The Colours of Andalucía

Day 1Madrid - Toledo - Córdoba

  • Explore Toledo, the ‘City of Three Cultures’
  • Time for an adventure through the Castilla-La Mancha region
  • Prepare yourselves for Córdoba’s bustling energy

Wave farewell to Madrid, folks. It’s time for an adventure. And the first stop sits prettily atop a hill, overlooking the Tajo River. It’s the ‘City of Three Cultures’. A kaleidoscope of Muslim mosques, Jewish synagogues, and Christian cathedrals. We’re talking about Toledo, the former capital of Spain.

You’ve got several hours here to explore how you’d like, maybe grab a bite to eat for lunch, and see some of the city’s most beloved spots such as the Jewish Quarter, the Cathedral, the Alcázar, and, of course, try Toledo’s famous Marzipan.

We’ll continue our journey through the Castilla-La Mancha region, a stunning landscape with everything from vineyards and windmills to castles and mountain ranges.

We arrive in your home for the night, a place we promise you’re going to love. Córdoba welcomes you with a bustling energy and picture-worthy architecture.

Accommodation: Hotel Eurostars Conquistador or similar, Córdoba

Day 2Córdoba - Fortaleza de la Mota - Granada - Córdoba

  • Explore the fort that feels like a city, Fortaleza de la Mota
  • Lose yourself in the winding old town of Granada
  • You may think you’re dreaming, but we assure you the Alhambra is very real

You leave Córdoba after a yummy breakfast and head to a place that, at first glance, might seem like a city… yet it’s a mere fort. Though mere shouldn’t be used here. With its imposing church tower and surrounding walls, this once-fortified hill was a prominent fort back in the Middle Ages. Today, as you explore the ruins of Fortaleza de la Mota, try to imagine what it might have been like defending it. Then grab a bite to eat before we head off again.

While you may not have heard of our first stop of the day, you’ll have definitely heard of our next one. Granada’s Old Town is like stepping back in time. Surrounded by a tapestry of colourful wares, delicious smells, and winding streets, you won’t know what to do with yourself. Lucky for you, we’re taking you to see the place. The reason so many come to Granada: to explore the lavish palace built by the Moors back in the 13th century. The incredible and unfathomable Alhambra. Our entry time and audio guides are included in your tour package, after which you have free time to explore this immense beauty.

As we head back to Córdoba for the evening, your mind whirls at all you’ve seen today. (B)

Included Activities: Entrance to the Fortaleza del la Mota and Entrance to the Alhambra, with audioguide

Accommodation: Hotel Eurostars Conquistador or similar, Córdoba

Day 3Córdoba - Seville - Carmona - Córdoba

  • Soak up the grandeur of Seville as you stroll through the Plaza de España
  • Be charmed by the historic and impressive Carmona

Good morning. And what a good morning it will be as we head to Seville, a city that signifies the essence of Spain. It will seduce you with its rich Moorish heritage, orange trees, tapas, and passionate flamenco.

Today it’s up to you to decide how to spend the day. Dedicate yourself to the discovery of the city’s 80 chapels at the Seville Cathedral and marvel at La Giralda. Or go for a stroll along the bank of the Guadalquivir to admire the iconic Torre del Oro, a military tower dating back to the 13th century.

You’ll then spend the afternoon in the charming town of Carmona. The town’s motto is ‘As the Morning Star shines in the dawn, so shines Carmona in Andalucia’… and with historical city gates, stunning cathedrals, and an impressive Roman necropolis, we think it’s quite fitting!

Then it’s back to Córdoba for the evening… tapas, anyone? (B)

Accommodation: Hotel Eurostars Conquistador or similar, Córdoba

Day 4Córdoba - Castillo de Consuegra - Madrid

  • You won’t believe the beauty of La Mezquita in Córdoba
  • Get to know Córdoba a bit better with hours of free time and plenty to see
  • Wander the Spanish stronghold of Castillo de Consuegra

Three nights in Córdoba and we already know you haven’t had enough of it. There’s so much more to see, trust us, and today is your chance. We’ll start the day with an included tour of the awe-inspiring La Mezquita. This great monument is both historically and architecturally important to Spain. This UNESCO World Heritage site represents a significant religious symbol as it has served as a place of worship for both Muslims and Christians. 

After your tour, the next few hours are yours to explore the city and grab some lunch. 

In the afternoon, it’s time to head to Castillo de Consuegra. It’s everything you could want from a Spanish stronghold. This 10th-century castle perches on a ridge overlooking a range of ‘Don Quijote’ windmills. Need we say more? 

It’s now time to head back to Madrid. After just a taste of incredible Spain, we’re certain you’ll want to get back out there as soon as possible. (B)

Included Activities: Entrance to La Mezquita, with audioguide and Entrance to Castillo de Consuegra
