Tour Summary

We enjoy a visit to the Royal Equestrian School in Jerez de la Frontera, to experience first-hand the brilliant horsemanship of this world-renowned learning centre.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can see an exhibition called How the Andalucian Horses Dance, while on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, although there`s no show as such, the visit is even more intimate as you get to see the stables and can witness a practise session, up close and personal.

As if that was not enough excitement for one day, we head to a boutique Sherry bodega to reveal the mystery behind the centuries-old sherry industry. A tasting of these delicious fortified wines is an integral and enjoyable part of the Jerez tour.

To wrap up the day perfectly, we taste some traditional tapas in a local restaurant, rubbing shoulders with Jerezano society and sampling platters of regional specialities.
