Visit Spain's southern coast and the alluring Andalucía region, an area known for its breathtaking rivers, hills, and farmland.

Tour capacity: This tour currently has 13 passengers and we can easily add two more! Registrations beyond that will be dependent on flight availability.

On your journey through southern Spain, you'll see Payoyo cheese being made, taste a variety of Sherry wines, watch a flamenco show, go to an olive oil mill and walk between cities in the Alpujarras.

This tour visits what are known as the “Cities of Light”: Granada, Cordoba, and Sevilla, including popular and impressive sites such as the Alhambra Palace and Sevilla's cathedral. The train trip to Cordoba is on the AVE, the Spain high-speed rail, a fun and fast way to travel. Cordoba boasts world-famous Moorish architecture, beautiful courtyard patio houses, and a revitalized riverside full of cafes.
