    • + ALBAICIN AND ROYAL CHAPEL First a leisurely walking tour through the Albaicin World Heritage Site - maze of narrow streets with whitewashed houses and patio gardens of bygone Moorish splendour. Our tour shows us the Catholic Monarchs' tombs, as well as some of their personal treasures, inside the Royal Chapel. We will end at the very picturesque Alcaiceria quarter, right at the heart of town.

    • + GYPSY NIGHT OUT This evening we are taken to the old quarter of Granada, which affords the finest views over the illuminated Alhambra Palace. Here we will enjoy the passionate 'Zambra' dances by Sacromonte's famous gypsies - a fiery emotive performance unique to the gypsies who live in these caves around. One drink is included.


    • + DINNER OF ANDALUSIAN SPECIALTIES TAPAS AND THE ATMOSPHERE OF OLD SEVILLE First we dine on a selection of mouth-watering Andalusian specialties, so popular in this region of Spain. You will be able to enjoy a myriad of different tastes and wines before taking an atmospheric walk through the old quarter of Seville, which has a special magic in the evening.

    • + FLAMENCO EVENING No visit to Andalucia would be complete without feeling the passion, rhythm and magic of a flamenco show. Let us take you to the best in town, and offer you 90 minutes of pure entertainment. Drink included.

    • + THE MOORISH ALCAZAR AND PLAZA AMERICA We begin with the elegant Moorish Alcazar, set in its own beautiful gardens. Then, a must for any visitor to Seville, we visit the famous exhibition site of Plaza de Espana


    • + EXCURSION TO MALAGA AND WINE TASTING A trip to Malaga, known as the capital of the Costa del Sol, with its palm tree lined avenues, its lively harbour busy with cruise-liners and its long sandy beaches. We visit the Moorish castle of Gibralfaro and admire the splendid views over the city from its parapets. Then we visit the old town and enjoy a guided tour of the house in which Picasso was born. We also visit the old Jewish quarter and admire the 2,000 year old Roman Amphitheatre. We end our excursion at a local winery where we taste some of the local vintages.

    • + EXCURSION TO MIJAS AND DINNER This small, hilltop village is one of the most charming and typical of Andalusia. Perched high up, it offers splendid views of the coastline. Its quaint, narrow streets with white-washed houses, its unusual donkey taxi service and unique square bullring are only some of its attractions - the shopper will find even more! Our evening will end with a Mediterranean dinner at a coastal restaurant.


    • + EXCURSION TO SEGOVIA Segovia is an impressive city, standing on a rocky outcrop 3,300 ft above sea-level between two rivers, surrounded by the beautiful Sierra de Guadarrama and colourful countryside. Designated a World Heritage Site by Unesco, Segovia is a treasure of a city. We will visit the beautiful 13th century castle, reputed to have inspired Walt Disney as the original for his interpretation of Snow White. You will marvel at the best preserved Roman aqueduct in the world, built without one single drop of mortar, it has remained intact for 2000 years.

    • + FOUNTAINS AND PLAZAS OF MADRID WITH DINNER This evening tour offers us the chance to admire the elegance of the new city, with its wide, tree-lined avenues and decorative fountains, before we experience the flavour of the old. Join the locals in a little idle chat and "people-watching" as they sip an aperitif before dinner. Drinks included.


    • + FADO WITH DINNER An evening's entertainment Portuguese style. Savour a typical meal with local aperitifs and wines. Then relish the opportunity of watching the Portuguese demonstrate their folk dancing before listening to the unequalled 'Fado' singing.

    • + SINTRA CASCAIS AND THE ESTORIL COAST We leave Lisbon for the slopes of the Sierra de Sintra, an area studded with palaces. After visiting an impressive palace, we see the fashionable resort of Estoril before returning to Lisbon by way of the quaint fishing village of Cascais.
