Spend 5 days in some of Spain's most beautiful cities, including Cordoba, Granada, Toledo and Seville, on this trip from Barcelona.

Then head to Seville, a city once controlled by the Moors, to admire its Arab-inspired architecture and its magnificent cathedral, idyllic gardens and ancient Santa Cruz area. Spend the fourth day in Granada, home to the incredible Alhambra, the elaborate palace of the Moors and the Arab kingdom's last stronghold in Spain up until 1492. Finish your trip on the fifth day with a chance to stroll the cobblestone streets of Toledo, another UNESO World Heritage site, where you'll see a wealth of medieval architecture.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

The best way to see Andalucia within a short space of time. We had a great guide in Hugo. Everything went like clockwork and really smoothly. Coach was very comfortable and clean. I would certainly recommend this tour. The local tour guides were also very knowledgeable and passionate about their subject. Would certainly use viator again.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This trip was AWESOME. Our guide, Gracia, was a consummate professional. She called us her family and we all felt that way after the first day. The tour guides in the cities were fantastic-especially our guide in Cordoba. His knowledge and love of Spanish history and his passion about his country were infectious. All of the art, monuments and cathedrals were exciting. This trip was a perfect solution for us as we wanted to cover a lot of territory, but did not want to drive a car.
We loved it and will definitely recommend it to others.

This was a great trip. Mariola was our guide on the bus. She was exceptional. Very good English and a positive, bubbly attitude. Very knowledgeable. Our city guides were very good, although we should have been using a whisper device every time. The tour bus was without a restroom which would have been better, but frequent stops were always planned. This was a quick and easy way to see Spain.

Good tour overall, comfortable coach with ample rest stops, Wifi on coach did not work. Guides and driver were very good. Main downside are the fellow travelers. By nature, coach tours will be populated by older patrons and some families with small children and therefore there will be some grumpiness that will occur, and the tours can be delayed cutting down on free time. Hotels were on the whole good, although I had anticipated better amenities. Only one hotel had a pool on the tour, and therefore exercise time was somewhat limited. I think that for travelers who do not feel comfortable setting up self tours this tour is a good value, and the company, cared well for us.

This tour was fantastic, our Guide Gracia was wonderful and really was the icing on the tour cake, very informative, funny, caring and very organised, she took great care of her 'family'. The places we visited were beautiful and we got to see a lot inside and out of the Cordoba Cathedral and The Alhambra, which were highlights among a lot of highlights. The local guides were very good too, the additional El Palacio Andaluz Flamenco Show in Seville I would highly recommend, the only sour note was the Gypsy Flamenco visit, we were picked up at 9pm and went to see the Alhambra at night which was good but we stood around for ages, 10mins would have been sufficient then the Flamenco show didn't start until 11pm which was late for a group who had an early start and it was nowhere near as good as the previous nights show I would tell people to pass on that one but that was the only downside the rest of the tour was as good as it gets.
