Beautiful Andalucia is rich in history and culture. Tour Andalucia offer you the chance to experience this with wonderful tours to the best of Andalucia. An exceptional place in Europe for its scenery and landscape, Andalucia boasts a remarkable history that is responsible for some of the most breathtaking architecture and fantastic cities.

Why choose Tour Andalucia?
Tour Andalucia take you to visit the spectacular cities of Andalucia and their amazing monuments and palaces in small select groups. Our tours include visits to the Alhambra in Granada, the Mesquita in Cordoba, sophisticated Seville, Malaga, stunning Ronda and historic Antequera.
We offer a range of tours:
Villa Tour – This fantastic 7 day/6 night tour takes you to all of the major Cities in Andalucia. You stay in the guest wing of one of two Villas which are located in a large village, just 10 minutes from historic Antequera - known as the heart of Andalucia – and 45 minutes from Malaga. The Villas are ideally situated with short journey times to all of the key Cities and an easy drive to Malaga Airport. One of the many advantages of our tours is that you don't spend long hours sitting in a vehicle to get to your tour destinations and you maximise your sightseeing time. Each day, following a leisurely breakfast, we transport you to one of the Cities for a fantastic time of cultural sightseeing and then we take you back to the Villa for the evening. A special day being the Granada visit where we not only visit the old quarter and the Alhambra, but we stay for the evening to have dinner with a fabulous authentic Flamenco performance and see the Alhambra lit up at night.
Antequera Tour – This is the same itinerary as our Villa based tour but instead of staying in one of our Villas, you stay in the 4* Antequera Golf Hotel situated in historic Antequera. Each day we transport you to the Cities and back.
5* Tour – This is our premier tour where you stay in wonderful 4* and 5* hotels in each of the key cities we visit. This is also a 7 day/6 night tour, where you stay in luxurious accommodation and have a chauffeur driven vehicle transport you between the hotels and the Cities. The day time itinerary is similar to our Villa tour, however, rather than return to a fixed base each day we move on to the next City where you stay overnight and get to sample the Cities both by day and at night. You stay one night in each of the places we visit other than Granada where you spend two nights. Due to the personal nature of this tour we have flexibility to modify the itinerary according to your requirements. You can also enhance your tour with our 5* Plus Tour where we add an additional day or two to your tour and you stay in a beautiful traditional Spanish Country Estate 'Cortijo Las Salinas' set in the middle of the wonderful Spanish countryside near Granada. The Cortijo provides you dinner, breakfast and lunch and you have time to relax, walk in the local olive groves and enjoy the company of your welcoming English hosts.
5* Weekend Tour – A wonderful first class 'get away for the weekend' tour of the cultural historic Cities of Cordoba and Granada. Staying in 5* Hotels, you get to sample the delights of these Cities in style and luxury. Our 5* Weekend Tour is a great way to give you and your partner a wonderful short experience away from day to day life and revel in the luxury of 5* Hotels for a great price. A few days the tour may be, but the memories will last a lifetime.
Combination Tour – With many of our guests enjoying the outdoors and beautiful scenery as well as the cultural City Trips, we have a combination tour that we offer in conjunction with our walking holiday division Walking Andalucia www.walkingandalucia.net. At the end of your City tour you can extend your holiday staying in a beautiful 'Cortijo' Country House near Ronda. Our walking guide will then take you on organised walks in the Grazelema and Sierra Nieves National Parks so that you can end your vacation experiencing the wonderful Andalucian countryside.
Tour Extension – For the Villa and Antequera based tours we offer a two day optional extension to the tours to visit the lesser known but fabulous sites of Madinat al-Zarah and Alcala La Real, have a look at Tour Extension.
One Day Tours – As an alternative to sitting on the beach all day, we offer small group one day tour excursions from the Costa Del Sol to Cordoba, Granada and Ronda. Contact us for details.
Two Day Tours – For visitors to the Costa Del Sol or Malaga who wish to maximise their visit to Andalucia, we provide a two day tour encompassing Cordoba & Granada where you stay in a nice Hotel overnight in the old quarter of Granada. Contact us for details.
Winter Break – If you fancy a short break during the winter months, our 4 day/3 night winter break tour takes you to the great Cities of Malaga, Seville, Ronda and Granada. With flexible arrival and departure dates to match the reduced flight availability during the winter we make it easy for you to have a great experience in one of Europe's best climates.

“It is nearly five weeks since I returned from my stay in your villa. I do not want another week to elapse before letting you know that this was the best guided tour I have experienced...". Daphne
A Twist in the tale!!
I took my parent's tour itinerary (okay, Gary's tour itinerary), I customised it to meet my needs and I spent a couple of weeks cruising the streets of places like Mollina, Ronda and Cordova on Google Earth. Amazing places, heaps of story potential. I often wish I could do the tour, sometimes I think I already have.
And there's another coda too. A few weeks ago, my father turned up at my writing shed with cash in his hand, wanting to buy a book to send to Gary. So, the story has now made its way back to where it started!
The book is only two weeks old, and already I've had quite a few people talking to me about the part of Spain it's set in and the tour, so it's time to share some details. While Dennis (the story's B&B proprietor and tour guide) isn't Gary – I invented the former and haven't yet met the latter – and the B&B in the story is my own creation too, the sights are real and Gary's B&B and tours at Tour Andalucia come highly recommended.
