Cultural cuisine

To get the full flavour of Spain, we dedicate a day to Spanish culture.

These delightful small dishes of various titbits can be served either hot or cold. After enjoying the fruits of our labour, with a glass or two of sangria, we take a guided walk to the honey museum, a local speciality, before our Spanish theme continues with music and food to match. Olé!

Glistening Granada

Granada is a city brimming with steep, narrow streets and beautiful nooks and crannies. Our day begins with a guided tour of the magnificent Alhambra Palace with its commanding views over the whole city and one of the most famous examples of Moorish architecture. Stopping for a tapas lunch at one of the historic centres taverns, we then have the afternoon free to explore more of this fascinating city.

Gracious Guadix

Off the beaten path, in the east of the Granada Province, we find the large bustling country town of Guadix. Together we will then visit The Cathedral of Guadix, one of the oldest in Andalucía, The town is famous for its cave houses, with almost half of its inhabitants living underground. It’s then on to a local vineyard for a tasting of 3 of local wines and tapas while finding out about the wine making process and the differences between them.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €20.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ϻdd on.
