Get acquainted with some of Spain’s most spectacular cities on a 7-day tour of southern Spain from Torremolinos to Madrid. Delve into the rich history and remarkable architectural tableaux of Granada, Toledo, Madrid, Cordoba, Seville and Ronda and see an array of UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites in each.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour with Julia Travel. We loved all the cities and the highlights. one glitch was the tour guide missed finding us in the bus depot so left us but we eventually caught up. Overall, pretty well organized. Marguerite was a great tour guide.
Excellent value for money
The itinerary should also include a walking tour of Granada , which was exceptional . The tour stays just outside of Granada - make sure you take a taxi to St Nicholas square
Madrid : ensure you visit the palace ( open to the public)
Is a reasonable price to see Spain. We had a good time. Our guide Josef is a great guide. Excursion in Seville is worth the money.
This was a great trip if you want to have some time to explore Madrid on your own as we did.
We had superior Hotels, did not like them at all, all of them were too far from the centres, very cold atmosphere, too modern , too much business class , food was just about ok, food in Seville was disaster for two days, I would not give it to the dogs, and I am not exaggerating. Coach was very good, drivers perfect , organisation was very good, except one time in Madrid they did not come to pick us up at all as promised , we waited for half an hour then we had to ring them international call , to find them, take taxi and get to the meeting point our self.
Guides were very informative and absolutely fab except personal attitude one of our guide elderly lady towards us when we were late for a pick up 30 min, not for our fault, we were ready for the time we thought we had to she made faces, angry remarks, body language was unacceptable, humiliated us in front of all the coach, not even gave us a chance to explain or even say sorry so we did not , it was very very unpleasant to continue the rest of our tour with her although she was very good at her job as a guide. Flamenco show in Seville was nice but if you get the first line front seat next to the stage , forget you will see a nice show, organisers just taking advantage of squeezing as much people as they can but not thinking of visibility of the show, it's like watching TV 10 cm away from your face, I was in a front seat and can say I want a full refund for that unpleasant experience.
Also, it was said in description that the tour will finish on a certain day 7ish p.m. , but it finished at 4 p.m., small detail but it's not right.
Bear in mind the tour - very tiring , every day early wake ups. Overall would recommend.
Local guides used on city tours generally quite knowledgeable. Hotels used and meals provided are good value. Organization by the Julia Travel agency who ran this tour is sadly lacking. Size of group was too large.
Overall I was disappointed with this tour - I don't believe it was a tour really with the group changing and spending two days left to my own devices in Madrid. The activities were great, travel in coach great and hotels satisfactory but the feeling of being on tour was not there at all :-(
