Au cours de ces deux jours au départ de la Costa del Sol, vous irez à Madrid en passant par Grenade et Tolède, et vous arrêterez à l'Alhambra et aux jardins du Generalife, site inscrit au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO.
The visit to the Alhambra on the first day was really great. I booked the three star hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean. The dinner was lovely, too. In the afternoon you can spend some time in Granada on your own. There is an optional tour to the gipsy district in the evening. For 30 you will see a Flamenco performance and have a nice view of the Alhambra by night. On the second day the bus needs about four hours to get to Toledo. There is a break in a small village. You should not go to the suggested tavern because the food is expensive and not very good. Afterwards the bus takes you to one of the surrounding hills of Toledo. This is a really beautiful spot. The next stop is a metalsmith shop. This is a rather lengthy stop. The visit to Toledo ends by a tour through the city itself. You will see the streets and the famous el greco painting.
In my opinion the first day is really great. The second day was a bit lackluster. Furthermore I didn't like the tourist traps lunch on the second day, metalsmith shop. Therefore only three stars.
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
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.
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.
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.
