Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Lisbon. Your flight arrives in Portugal's capital, Lisbon, where your private driver meets you and takes you to your hotel. Later, get your first introduction to the city by touring Lisbon's hilly streets in a tuk-tuk.

  • Today, leave Lisbon to visit nearby Sintra, known for its storybook architecture, where you can visit fantastical buildings and take in sweeping views of the sea. When you return to Lisbon this evening, enjoy a special dinner accompanied by traditional Portuguese fado music.

  • Spend your final day in Lisbon at leisure, perhaps taking the opportunity to visit the city's outer district of Belém. Tonight, enjoy a sunset cruise on the River Tagus accompanied by wine and canapés.

  • Journey across the border from Portugal to Spain today as you make your way from Lisbon to Seville, stopping along the way in Évora where you'll have time to enjoy lunch and explore the city's Roman architecture.

  • This morning, enjoy a walking tour of Seville to see the city's highlights, including the Giralda Tower and the Real Alcázar. The afternoon is yours to enjoy at leisure, and this evening, take a tapas tour of the city, ending with an exceptional flamenco performance.

  • Take a day trip to Córdoba today. This city is well-known for La Mezquita, the great mosque-cathedral. In addition to Córdoba, visit Almodóvar Castle, a Moorish castle dating back to 760.

  • Today, witness a traditional Andalusian horse riding exhibition at a prestigious school before eating lunch by the sea. Later enjoy a sherry tasting in Jerez, where the fortified wine originated.

  • Today, you will get a closer look at Andalusian cuisine as you head into the kitchen to learn how to prepare traditional regional fare. After you enjoy what you've made, you will spend the afternoon at leisure in Seville.

  • Continue journeying through southern Spain today by heading to the Moorish city of Granada, stopping on the way to explore Ronda, with its Roman bridge and plunging gorges.

  • Witness the majesty of the Alhambra up close today as you take a private guided tour, enjoying lunch within the grounds. After lunch, continue exploring the city with your guide, from the Baroque cathedral to the whitewashed streets of the Albayzin.

  • Explore a different side of Andalusia today with a hike through the Alpujarras, part of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. After your hike, continue on to the seaside town of Málaga to spend your final night in Spain at leisure.

  • Your journey in Spain comes to an end as you make your way to the airport for your flight. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
