Escape Details

Sample seven day tour starting in Malaga

Day 1
Granada

Your private chauffeur will pick you up from Malaga airport and transfer you to Granada (1½ hours away) where you will be checked into your 4-star hotel. Afterwards you will be given a private tour ...of the splendid Alhambra palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of southern Spain’s most iconic landmarks. You will wrap up the day with a relaxing tapas meal.

Day 2
Úbeda

On your second day, we’ll take you to the town of Úbeda. The fertile region around Úbeda is where nearly 20% of all olive oil production in the world takes place, plus half of the olive oil production in ...Spain itself. A visit to one of the most renowned producers here will include a walk through the groves, an olive oil tasting and a talk about production techniques.

After the tour you can visit Ubeda or Baeza. These twin towns, which were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites, are home to some of the best preserved Renaissance architectural sights in southern Spain.

Day 3
Priego de Córdoba

You will visit Priego de Cordoba, a town that has been producing olive oils since Roman times. The high quality of local produce has been recognised by the EU and awarded its own designation ...of origin. Here, at one of the local farms you will sample Picuda, a famous sweetly scented, fruity olive oil.

Afterwards you will have lunch at a local restaurant where you can try salmorejo, a hearty, refreshing Andalusian soup, served with a selection of top olive oils from the region, including Picuda, Picual and Hojiblanca. Following that we will head back to the hotel, where you can enjoy the rest of the day on your own, or if you prefer, you can opt for a horse riding experience.

Day 4
Ronda

In wine is the truth, said the ancient Romans. On your fourth day in Andalusia you are welcome to explore that ancient maxim on a trip to Ronda. Perched on the cliffs above a gorge, Ronda boasts ...one of the most scenic locations in Spain and one of the highest bridges. The bridge of Puente Nuevo, connecting the old and new quarters of the town, soars 100 meters above the El Tajo gorge.

Apart from the magnificent, and slightly dizzying views, Ronda is also well known for its vineyards and winemakers. You will pay a visit to a local producer who specializes in red wines. Afterwards you will enjoy a hearty lunch and you will have the rest of the day to yourself to explore this charming town.

Day 5
Vejer de la frontera

Your fifth day will include a truly unique cultural experience. We’ll kick off with a visit to finca Jandilla, a bull’s breeding ranch set in the countryside. Apart from watching the magnificent ...cattle grazing on the ground, you will also learn about the history of bullfighting. You’ll be offered to step onto the tentadero, a bullring for training young bulls and see some of the fighting bulls.

We will wrap up the day with a visit to Vejer de la Frontera – an atmospheric, Moorish-influenced town perched on a hilltop. With its dazzling white-washed houses, winding alleys and historic sites, Vejer de la Frontera is a real hidden gem. You will enjoy a relaxing lunch and recharge your batteries before you head out to explore this picturesque white town.

Day 6
Jerez de la Frontera

Your last day will take you to Jerez de la Frontera, which is known as the birthplace of sherry. You will visit several bodegas, among which the highly esteemed Gonzalez Byass and Tío Pepe wine ...producers, where you will try a variety of sherry brands, from dry, clear finos to dark, sweet olosoros – all served with tapas.

After your sherry crawl you will have time to explore the local sights at your leisure – the Baroque Cathedral of Jerez and the Alcazar, a medieval Moorish fortress.

Day 7
Málaga

After breakfast your driver will take you back to Malaga Airport. We won’t let you leave empty-handed – you will return home with a few personalized gifts, a little something to remember...your trip. Buen viaje!
