A tantalising taste of beautiful Andalusia…

This tour offers a taste of the magnificent scenery and Moorish architecture of this multi-faceted region of Spain, with visits to Malaga, Granada, Seville and Córdoba.

​We really enjoyed this holiday - saw some fantastic places, stayed at lovely hotels, had a brilliant tour guide and felt well looked after.

You’ll visit the Picasso Museum where the artist was born, before travelling to Granada, the city immortalised in the work of poet Federico Garcia Lorca.
