Very interesting and the area very beautiful. Our tour director, Graham, was both very knowledgeable of the whole area and made the journey fun. The local guides and trips were good however it was a shame and disappointing that we were not able to go inside Alhambra and were kept to the extensive gardens, which we were hurried through due to the number of tours I suspect. This holiday was in part to see the beauty of Alhambra, in fact was in the brochure which decided us on this particular holiday. We were disappointed and would suggest that in future brochures it should be mentioned, before payment, that the chances of going inside this beautiful building is doubtful. I would also record that the guide here was not the best.

Very well organised and a good balance of trips to free time. We both enjoyed meeting lots of new people from around the world. Our tour guide Ann did a very good job and made our trip to Andalusia a memorable one.

Overview

Andalucía is a hidden delight, tucked away from the tourist traps and surrounded by grand palaces, snow-capped mountains, rural villages and regal cities. All of which you'll explore on this delightful 7-day tour of Spain's most enchanting region. From quaint Mijas and Ronda to the thrash of the flamenco guitar in Granada and orange-scented Seville, this voyage reveals the classic highlights of magical Andalucía.

Total meals included:

  • 6 breakfasts

UK - Malaga - Mijas

Day
1

Fly to Malaga today. From the airport, we will take you to the attractive, whitewashed village of Mijas, hidden in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and affording great views of the Costa Del Sol. Check into your hotel here and enjoy the evening to relax as you wish.

No meals included

Mijas area - Ronda - Seville.

Day
2

After breakfast, sit back as you journey by coach deep through rolling hills into rugged Ronda, a dramatically scenic town that will take your breath away. Straddling the high, narrow El Tajo gorge that divides it in two, honey-stoned Ronda demands attention; with a palace that was once home to King Ferdinand and classic Moorish alleyways and cobbled streets, much of Ronda's magic lies in unforgettable views and authentic Spanish living. On a short walking tour, admire some of Ronda's highlights such as Puente Nuevo, the splendid 18th century high arched bridge that connects the main square to the Plaza de Toros bullring. Later, continue your journey to Seville, Andalucia's regional capital. On the way enjoy the scenic drive through the typical white-washed villages and picturesque countryside. Tonight, perhaps enjoy one of the flamenco shows that the city is so famous for.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Seville

Day
3

Steeped in history, this orange-scented city and its residents are known for their love of life, food and flamenco. With an abundance of parks and the River Guadalquivir running through the centre of the town, Seville is a unique destination, even for Spain. The discovery of the New World had a big impact on the old world, and Seville saw the most of that, with new buildings popping up all over town; Christopher Columbus is even buried in Seville's Cathedral to reinforce the town's magnitude. The town has changed little since the Moor's construction of the palace of Alcazar, leaving behind a legacy of tiny, narrow streets and cool squares allowing relief from the sun in the summer. Don't forget, flamenco was born here too, a testament to the lust for life in Seville. After a sightseeing tour, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Head for Barrio Santa Cruz, the former Jewish quarter, to experience its charming lanes, little-painted houses and flower-draped balconies, or take time out in a friendly tapas bar.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Seville.

Day
4

Today, enjoy time to explore and relax in Seville as you wish. You may want to see some of the sites featured on yesterday's guided tour in more detail, take a stroll around the city's parks or along the Guadalquivir River. Alternatively, slow the pace by with a relaxing river cruise or by sampling delicious Andalucian cuisine.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Cordoba.

Day
5

Following breakfast, this morning, make the scenic journey from Seville to Cordoba. The former ancient capital of Spain's Moors, this atmospheric city fringes the Guadalquivir and is best known for its astonishing Great Mosque or Mezquita. Afterwards, make your way to the hotel in Granada for a two-night stay.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

Granada

Day
6

Set beneath the snow-tipped Sierra Nevada Mountains, Granada is Spain's most captivating city, known for being home to the Alhambra, an overwhelming Moorish fortress-palace on a hilltop guarding the city. Your guided tour of Granada includes the Alhambra complex and gardens (please note that entrance to the Nasrid palace is not guaranteed). Meander around the serene patios and pools of the Generalife Gardens and absorb the views from the terraces and towers. Later today, you will have time to discover the rest of the city. You may want to explore its chic shopping plazas and old Moorish quarter with winding passages, picturesque houses and medieval churches. Much of the city has remained untouched for centuries, giving you an authentic step back in time.

Meals included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
