Here, a Local Guide will talk you through all its highlights. You'll see the 600ft deep El Tajo gorge that divides the town in two and the ancient bridge spanning it. You'll also head to the southern side of town to admire its typically Andalucian whitewashed houses.​
  • DAY 3 Jerez
  • A fascinating tour is included today, as you visit the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art. You'll learn all about the classical traditions of Spanish Baroque horsemanship and see how the horses and riders prepare for competitions. You'll then take your seat in the auditorium to watch a mesmerising equestrian performance accompanied by traditional music and costumes. We'll finish the day as we head to a bodega to learn all about the production of Jerez's famous sherry with a tasting included, of course.

  • DAY 7 Cordoba/Granada
  • Our destination today is Granada, which we will reach via a visit to Cordoba. This city's crowning glory is one of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, the Mezquita, or Great Mosque. After a tour inside, we'll have time to explore the maze of winding streets and picturesque squares of the Jewish quarter.​

  • DAY 8 Granada
  • You really can't visit Granada without a trip to the Alhambra Palace, so as well as your city tour today, that's exactly where you're heading.
