Tour Summary

This Grand Andalucia Tour has been designed to take in the very best that Andalucia has to offer. The itinerary is fast paced and exciting, including many of our favourite out of the way towns and villages.

You will enjoy the Golden Triangle of Granada, Cordoba and Seville whilst also delving into the more rural parts of Andalucia to discover the delights of olive oil, hilltop towns and sherry.

A trip on Mr Henderson’s Railway retraces some of the historic rail route between Gibraltar and Ronda, passing through some beautiful scenery along the way in the stunning Sierra de Grazalema.

Sherry tasting, a flamenco show and dining in excellent, tried and tested restaurants throughout your Grand Andalucia Tour will create unforgettable memories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Andalucia so attractive to tourists?
The beauty of Andalucia lies in its variety of landscapes, wealth of history and welcoming people. Enjoy snow-capped mountains, wide beaches, Europe’s only desert, UNESCO heritage sights and delicious dishes washed down with local wine and beer.

How many days are enough for Andalucia?
To visit the main sights of Andalucia, 8-10 days is sufficient. However, to truly immerse yourself in the culture, history and landscape of the region, two to three weeks will allow you to wander from west through central Andalucia to the beautiful beaches of the Costa del Sol and Costa Tropical. It is why so many travellers return year after year.

How is Andalucia different to the rest of Spain?
Andalucia has the hottest and driest climate in Spain. It is one of the country’s autonomous regions, with towns and cities inhabited for millennia. The range of landscapes also lends it a uniqueness to the rest of the country.

How to spend a week in Andalucia?
Our Grand Andalucia Tour takes in the primary monuments, cities and landscapes of Andalucia along with some of the less visited areas, giving you a taste of historic and authentic Andalucia. Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Ronda are just some of the towns and cities you can visit in a week.

What is the best month to visit Andalucia?
This will depend on your plans and love of the heat. July and August are the hottest months with average temperatures above 30ºC, best for beach holidays. For sightseeing and tours, we recommend the months of May, June and September as they are hot but not tiringly so. Of course, if you wish to see the Alhambra set against a snow-capped mountain backdrop, the winter months of December to February are best.
