Tour: Under the Andalusian Sky

Firstly, VBT makes sure that your appetite is suitably satisfied whilst taking in the spectacular views. (Clearly, this is high on our list of priorities…) On this tour, you’ll spend leisurely lunches with local hosts, partake in wine and olive oil tastings, and learn the secrets to preparing a regional specialty. This six-day trip takes you through the historically important and architecturally stunning cities of Seville, Cordoba, and Granada, but also makes sure you to experience the smaller villages and towns in-between.
