What a fantastic tour, great cities to visit made even better by our tour guide who was fun throughout. We had wonderful times in Seville as it was the time of the fair, saw a great flamenco show, on the way there we stopped off to see 'the man from La Mancha', the visits to Granada and Cordoba were also very interesting, the hotels were great and the whole tour was very well organised, although there was no toilet on the bus, we had regular 'comfort breaks', all the passengers on the trip were really interesting, they came from 'all walks of life' and many Countries, l am sure that we all made new friends, it was a pleasure to have participated in the tour, the value was good, the food was acceptable for 4 star hotel standards, l would recommend this tour to any traveler who is thinking of visiting Spain

The tour was very well organised. Everything was on time. Both Grace and the driver were very patient , polite and in good mood. The superior hotels Melia in Sevilla and Granada were of very high quality and in central locations. The two language guide was tiring. The coach was not very spacy and did not have Wi-Fi. If you do not take a taxi to get you straight to the parking of the coach in plaza Oriente you have to get down the stairs following the label of the local tour operator until the 1st underground floor and then get the lift to the 2nd underground floor where the coach waits for you.

The tour was very good, led by a very professional, experienced and humorous guide. He shared many history and knowledge of his country and the places we went during the 4 days tour. Hotels offered were good though the one at Granada can be better in terms of location accessibility. Its quite a walk from the city centre. Local guides at the various destinations were knowledgeable but it will be great if they can provide us with some time to take photographs. There wasn't enough time to do that when the places are so beautiful. Highly recommended.

It was a super trip! The guide was terrific and took care of everything. We had activities each day that were optional after the daily tours if we wanted more to see or do that was organized or we could go on our own. We chose the premium hotels which was an excellent extra amount of money because the hotels that were a little more were closer to the city center and the main action, plus their buffets for dinner and breakfast were excellent! If you are the type of person that likes to see and learn as much as you can in a short time, likes to have the route planned so you don't waste time looking for things and enjoys a combination of walking tours and panoramic on the bus sight-seeing this is a great deal that brings it all together! It was our best trip yet and ax a result we may look into more extended day tours like this though we have always done just full day tours in the past. Great value for your money, time we'll spent, lots of free or optional time, super food, good company and knowledgeable guide - WHT more could you ask for!

This was a great tour. Weather was great in March for sightseeing and I have nothing but good things to say about the entire trip, except I didn't enjoy the Flamenco tour to the cave in Granada. There was a mix-up on time, and the show didn't begin until after 11:00 pm. We didn't get back to the hotel until 1:00 am and had an early start planned the next day, so not much sleep. The rest of the tour went as planned. The tour guide Hugo was awesome. He was helpful, informative and dependable. There was enough time at each place to do some souvenir shopping and it was planned well so that there was not much down time. We enjoyed it thoroughly and highly recommend this trip.

It was very well planned. We had a good balance of guided activity and free time, and our main guide was exceedingly helpful and well informed. As an introduction to Andalucia it was just what we wanted.

My first experience with a viator/local tour company tour was a very pleasant one. Tour escort Gosep was very knowledgeable of all the sites we visited and made us all feel at home. Driver Roberto was excellent, taking us to all venues in a timely and safe manner. All local guides were awesome, Cristobal, Lydia, Oscar. Hotel and meal services were very good. I'm looking forward to taking another tour by these folks in the near future!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend it to everyone visiting Spain. I would not have been able to see all these beautiful Andalusian sights in 4 days on my own. The tour was well-planned and well-paced, and our tour guide Grace did a great job getting all 37 of us from one sight to another. The bus was very comfortable and well maintained.

I chose the superior hotel option but wasn't too impressed with the rooms - in fact, I could not sleep at all at Granada because the room was freezing. On a more positive note, the superior hotels are centrally located, especially the one in Granada, so that made it easy to explore the city on foot.

We chose to do all the optional tours but the only one that was worth our time was the flamenco show in Seville. Please skip the river cruise in Seville and the Arab town walking tour and gypsy show in Granada - you're better off exploring on your own. The river cruise in Seville lasted an hour, but we spent it wishing that we were at Alcazar or the cathedral instead because they close around 5/6 PM and you don't get a lot of time to look around.

A helpful tip: the pick-up point is currently in the Plaza de Oriente bus parking in front of the Royal Palace. The voucher says we need to go to level -2, however the elevators only go to -1. You need to take the elevator to level -1 then walk to -2. It took me a while to figure that out and I was worried about missing the tour.
