Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Best 4-Day Spain Tour: Cordoba, Seville and Granada from Madrid. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The tour was great value. The hotels we stayed in were more than adequate. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint was although the bus stopped ever 2 hours for a break, it would be better if the bus itself had a working lavatory.
Awesome tour guides and drivers! Even the optional parts were great. We had booked this trip for the holidays and on Christmas Day, we were in Toledo where most of the places we saw were closed. Oh well.
We chose the standard hotels. The hotel Catalonia in Sevilla was great. The dinner was ok but the breakfast was the best. Room was comfortable. Only issue we had was weak wifi. The hotel Los Angeles in Granada was also comfortable. Both the dinner and breakfast were ok. They handed out glasses of champagne for the Christmas Eve dinner. Nice touch.
If you only have a few days for touring Andalusia, I would recommend that you take the tour and hopefully, you get Juzef who was our tour guide. Funny guy and he provided great facts about Spain. He was also gracious enough to speak French to the one lady in the group who did not speak and understand English quite well. Also, the standard hotels are ok. No need to spring for the higher class hotels.
It was well organised, easy paced and covered history and culture of Spain quite well. Hotels were good. Overall it was good value for the price. Optional additions were also good.
This tour was fantastic! The pace was perfect and our guide very personable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the tour.
One of the best tours I have been in. All locations are beautiful, our tour guide Hugo was very efficient and punctual, drive was very responsible and our local tour guides were knowledgeable. Would not ask for anything better :)
The tour took us to the Andalucia region of Spain in which very rich in history and cultural heritage from medieval period as well as from 18-19th century. All the visited venues are outstanding and accompanied by very knowledgeable tour guides. The whole tour is very well managed e.g. transportations, accomodations,optional tours etc. It is a highly recommended tour to join.
We really enjoyed the tour, the tour guide was very good. I would recommend this tour for every one.
Great tour guide, great tour, we are still saying how great everything was during our stay. Thanks you guys
made it quite enjoyable.
the tour was fantastic i enjoy it and recommended to my friends
It was just " Great " via the tour operator:
very professional, organized, on time and exactly as mentioned in tour plan.
Excellent tour guide " Mr. Josep " and very good hotels.
A lot to see in Andulecia and very good services in return of money
The trip was excellent and exciting. I enjoyed the whole activities. I liked the hotels and the punctuality and caring of the tour coach (Carlos). However two minor things we disliked: the guide in Alhambra Palace was very fast and we could not follow and missed some sites. The second was the restaurant in the hotel in Granada was charging every drink (during dinner) including water despite the good buffet it offers.
The Alhambra in Granada is a must-visit destination. This is a convenient way to explore Andalusia if you're short on time. There is a separate local guide for Cordoba, Seville, Granada, and Toledo to provide much more in-depth information for each location. Plenty of free time in Seville and Granada to shop or explore on your own. The standard hotel accommodations were pretty nice.
It was fantastic. Tour guide, great. Local tour guides, good. Granada (Trina), out of this world. Thank you.
We had a great time, the hotels and the tours were amazing. Grace was wonderful; (we loved her). I will recommend this trio to anybody.
Wonderful staff specially Grace the tour guide.
It was my first time visiting Spain, and I felt booking a guided tour would help my boyfriend and I navigate all the attractions in a timely manner. Man was I right! Not only were all the tour guides knowledgeable about all the different sites making the trip rather educational because you're not only sightseeing, but the tour made good use of our time, allowing us to make the most of our trip. I choose to three-star hotel option and was really pleased. The hotel rooms weren't fabulous, but they did meet our needs: clean beds and restrooms and good meals. We aren't high maintenance or picky eaters either, so it was good. Most of the travelers on tour with us stayed at the four-star hotels... they seemed to have more complaints about in terms of the dining options at the hotel. However, they did say their rooms suited their American lifestyle. So if you can manage the simplistic rooms, the three-star option is cheaper and decent.
The tours itself during day demanded lots of walking. Although you have a tour bus for transportation, most of the time travelers are required to walk throughout the cities. Prepare yourself by packing comfortable walking shoes. If you're not use to walking, start taking daily walks. I estimated that we were on foot for an average of five hours a day, and that does not include the time independent time you have to just roam the cities. I also recommend packing snacks. The tour does try to get you to see as much as possible, and sometimes that means not eating lunch until late in the afternoon. You do start out with a large breakfast at 7:00 am, but even so people starving by 1:00 due to all the walking. Just make sure you have a little something to hold you down until lunch.
Overall, I highly recommend this tour. Because we were booking online, my boyfriend and I were skeptical. But have no fear, Viator will help with everything... just give them a call. The travel company in Spain was also very helpful.
Every single thing on this tour was exceptional. Karim (tour guide) took care to ensure everyone was taken care of and the sites visited were spectacular. Each city had a site specific guide who was knowledgeable and worked hard to ensure all were accommodated. We were very happy with this purchase!
Perfect tour and very organized route by the ground handler, thanks for Karim the tour leader of the trip he has very good knowledge and professional attitude, he was speaking almost 5 languages which was very helpful to put all passengers in ease, he was very friendly and i enjoyed the trip because of his spirit.
the driver was very professional and polite and always smiling, thanks for his safe driving....

Amazing tour. Well worth the money. Got to see everything I wanted to see and more. Our guide, Karim, was awesome. He spoke many languages and was very helpful to everyone.
Professional and prompt services with attention to personal needs and comfort.
this was our very 1st bus/group tour and we had a great time. our guide Josep was a very informative and funny guy. kept everybody entertained while also keeping things moving along nicely. all the activities included were fascinating to see. There was also plenty of time to ourselves so didn't feel like being pushed from place to place all the time with no spare time. bus comfortable, hotels good and food nice with plenty of it available. can definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent and professional service by the tour operator. Hotels are very clean. Tour guide and driver were very pleasant, prompt, professional and very helpful. The Alcazer and the Cathedrals of Seville, Cordoba and Granada are not to be missed.
Worth the money.
The tour exceeded my expectations. Carlos our tour guide and coordinator and the local guides were all excellent, interesting and very efficient. The time spent on guided tours was more than adequate and there was time to do some solo exploring. I could never have managed to take all this in on my own in just four days. Tte hotels were fine and centrally located for solo exploring and there were several optional tours available for evenings. The bus and driver Sergio were excellent. It was money well spent. If there was anything negative it was the hotel restaurant dinners were somewhat bland and could have stood a little local flavor but that is pretty normal on tours. On the other hand breakfasts were excellent.
