Itinerary offered through a Madrid located travel company :

Day one - Transfer from arrival point in Seville to your charming 4 * hotel. We will enjoy a welcome dinner and a Flamenco show and have a first glance of this cheerful and lovely city at night.

Day two - Tapas and city tour and cooking class


Today we will immerse in the tapas world as there cannot be a more flavourful introduction to the lifestyle and cuisine of Andalucia than choosing from hundreds of different small tasteful delicacies. We will enjoy a walking tapas tour at the most authentic bars as we stroll around the Cathedral, the Giralda (if you wish we can climb the steps inside the tower for a magnificent view of the city), the Alcazar Palace, the Casa de Pilatos, a large sixteenth-century mansion where Mudejar, Gothic and Renaissance styles blend harmoniously amidst exuberant patios and gardens.

Afternoon: Cooking class with dinner. The chef will teach you how to prepare special Andalusian recipes such as Gazpacho (depending on season), Andalusian tapas, “pescaito Frito” ( tiny fried fish with vegetables).


Day three - Excursion to Jerez, home of Sherry

Early departure to Jerez and visit to a winery: A guide leads you through the rows upon rows of casks – many of them signed by illustrious visitors in the past – explaining the criadera and solera system used to blend different vintages, and the difference between the dry finos, amontillados and olorosos. The tour ends in the "sacristy" – with a tasting of the various wines, expertly drawn from the barrel by the “venenciador”, using a cup attached to a slender rod.

Visit to The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art to see its show entitled "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" *, a unique exhibition, one of the best equestrian shows in the world. An equestrian ballet accompanied by totally Spanish music and 18th Century style costumes, all put together and choreographed using movements based upon Classic Dressage, Doma Vaquera and the daily chores of traditional equestrian work.

Then we will continue to Sanlucar, half hour driving from Jerez, to have lunch at a renowned restaurant by the Shore of Guadalquivir river. You will be able to taste for yourself that the Sherry of Sanlucar can accompany your appetizer "Tapa" and then your main course, because fortunately, in Sanlucar de Barrameda there is a Sherry for every dish!

Back to Seville, rest of the evening for leisure

Day Four - Cooking class and leisure time

Morning free to explore this lovely city on your own.
Afternoon hands-on cooking class with dinner.


Day five - Excursion to olive oil mill, winery and Cordoba

Today we will travel along beautiful landscapes of never-ending olive groves to visit an old olive mill in Baena, one of the most important areas of olive oil production in Spain. We will find out how virgin olive is produced using traditional methods. After an interesting guided tasting we will then move on to one of the oldest wineries in Spain, founded in 1729, to see firsthand the entire process which produces one of the best sweet wines in the world, Pedro Ximenez, king of the Montilla - Moriles Protected Denomination of Origin.

After a typical lunch at a tavern we will visit Cordoba, its medieval quarter, once the home of the Jewish community, a labyrinth of winding, narrow streets, shady flower-filled courtyards and picturesque squares and of course, we will visit the superb 8th century Mosque (Mezquita).

Back to Seville. Rest of the evening free
