2-Day Spain Tour: Costa Del Sol to Madrid via Granada and Toledo

Generalife Gardens at The Alhambra, Granada

Departing from Costa del Sol you will travel to the foot of Sierra Nevada, between the Darro and Genil rivers, where you will find Granada. The last city reconquered in 1492, Granada has a distinctly Arab influence with the impressive UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Alhambra and Generalife Gardens amongst the highlights.

Toledo is a city that once visited, never ceases to rest in the imagination. The fortified medieval city built on a hill overlooking the Tagus River, is without a doubt one of the densest monumental cities in the world. It also lies claim to being the hometown of Spanish artist El Greco and houses many of his famous works.

Your tour concludes on arrival in Madrid.

It was a great trip.

Had the best trip. It was really great value for money and extremely interesting. Watching the Spanish Dancing and sipping Sangria was a nice added touch. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see a bit of traditional spain but are limited on time.

I really enjoyed everything about this tour and really appreciated our guide taking us to the Gypsy caves to see the wedding dance. Great time!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

Generally good tour with efficient use of time which you couldn't do if doing it on your own travelling from Costa del Sol to Madrid.
They changed pickup time to later and didn't inform us so a little inconvenient.
The bus had a problem on the first morning which meant we were running late all day so had a rushed visit to Alhambra but it was so spectacular, the gardens and building we forgot about being late.
Accommodation in Granada was very nice. Los Angeles Hotel....a family run hotel , 3 star which was really better than 3 star,
The extra add on night visit to the visit to the Gypsy caves and night walk was well worth while.
Over all a good tour...thank you

It was a lovely, whirlwind. The accomodations were quite good and our tour director along with the local guides were very good.

My husband and I were awed by the history of both Granada and Toledo as described by our tour guides. There is so much to see that sometimes it was overwhelming. I was disappointed that there was little time for exploring the local shops for "treasures" to remind us of our trip. The tour bus was comfortable, and it was great making friends with our group members.

Great value tour. Good motel and tour guide. Only bad thing is lack of info re where tour leaves from (not told correct area to stay night pre tour) and when contacted office they did not speak English so had to get someone to translate. Needed more pre tour organization.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2010

This trip was a welcome addition to my travels through Southern Spain. It was wonderful to sit back, relax and let my guide do all the hard work :-) I learned so much more about the history of the areas we visited when compared with travelling alone.
