What You Can Expect
On arrival in Jerez, your first stop is the Williams and Humbert winery, one of the most prestigious wineries in the region. Listen as one of the winery staff guides you through the winery and explains the making and ageing of the wine. Enjoy a sample of three types of wine, accompanied with a snack.
Then, watch an exciting Andalusian horse show that the winery organizes on its own exhibition tracks. Be enchanted by the horse breaker and his magnificent taming of the Andalusian horse, who will perform a beautiful dance.
After the show, relax on your coach and hear interesting stories about the region from your guide as you take in views of the Jerez countryside on the way to Puerto de Santa María, a lovely city in the province of Cadiz. Here, board a local ferry for a sightseeing cruise along the Bay of Cadiz. Relax and admire the pristine beaches and beautiful coast from the deck.
Disembark at the port and stroll around the city center. See the famous Puertas de Tierra monument and the 18th-century Cadiz Cathedral. Following your walking tour, enjoy two hours of free time to explore the city or recharge at a local restaurant with some traditional Andalusian food (own expense).
Reunite with your guide and enjoy a panoramic sightseeing coach tour of Cadiz before returning to Costa del Sol.
A jam packed day of sightseeing. The tour of the sherry distillery was very interesting and the horse show amazing (although wish it could have been longer). The boat ride over to Cadiz takes in some of the industrial sites of the area. There's not much to do in Cadiz apart from browse the shops and have lunch, but the coach tour round the town afterwards was interesting. The scenery during the whole trip was breathtaking. Full marks to all the guides for being so multilingual. The only critisism I have is that they switch languages so seamlessly you end up listening to the whole narration, even if not in your own language - this can get very tiring, and then you end up missing a sentence or two in your own language. It would also save time during the tour of Williams and Humberts if there was only one language group - there's so much information to take in that the trip takes double the time if the guide covers two languages, and then it becomes rushed and the tasting and shopping is curtailed. The only other downside is that if you join the tour from the east of the country (Torremolinos, as I did), it can take 2 hours to complete the pick ups - it can get quite tedious (and there was a coach swap on my trip too); however, the coach was very comfortable and the scenery gorgeous. The highlight has to be the horse show.
This was the only option to get from Malaga to Cadiz and back for one day. It is available only once per week. The Jerez experience while a first class was a clear bonus for me. The guide was very entertaining and spoke three foreign languages, pretty fluently by the way. Given the long distance to be covered, everything was quite well planned and there was lunch possibilities for those interested (as well as short breakfast and late afternoon break). Pricing seems very competitive.
My only complaint was communication on pick-up time and communication as to where I was to be picked up. After an almost sleepless night I did get picked up by chance. Mini-bus driver was standing outside our hotel and my husband spotted him as asked if he was from Viator. My husband was then told that I had exactly 2 minutes to be downstairs and on mini-van.
We had been in Morocco for almost a week and had had no internet access nor cell phone usage. Lack of communication was very bad but trip itself was good.
We were happy with this excursion and would recommend it to others.
TIRESOME.-ESPECIALLY FOR GETTING THE PEOPLE ON THE BUS. ALONG THE WAY-BESIDES AN ENORMOUS BUS DIFFICULT TO DRIVE ON NARROW STREETS.-However it would have been nice to visit JEREZ as well .-
It was great for our group. Just be patient with so many pick ups. Quite a long trip. Best to stay in Cadiz overnight.

We had a great guide. She pointed out the bulls running in the fields and the history and culture surrounding them. The tour of the sherry factory was very interesting. The horse show was a nice piece of culture. We did not see much else in Jerez, but the boat ride was pleasant. We could have used more time in Cadiz. We really had time for lunch and an hour to walk around the old town. It had lots of narrow streets intersecting at odd angles. We had a good bus tour of the rest of Cadiz so it is an interesting city. I enjoyed where we had our out and returngoing and returning rest stop, very Spanish and fun to watch the people.
cadiz was very nice, you need to stay loner there to enjoy the city
This was overall a very enjoyable trip.The guide was very good and was punctual and all ran smoothly. The winery and horse show were excellent - a good balance and the wine guide gave enough detiail to remain interesting rather than being too technical. We had however a very long day picked up in Malaga at 6.40 back at 10pm. We would have liked hotel pick up but overall very memorable.
I enjoyed the tour to Cadiz and the winery tour was alright.
The tour guides dropped me off back to malaga and spoke in several languages in the bus.
