Re: Walking Tours in Andalusia

Hi Pheymont I wouldn't worry about the wine and tapas portion. Things are really inexpensive her, and the tapas has been universally good. It's easy to get three or four tapas to share and a couple of glasses of wine for 15 Euro. As for the tours, we didn't take any, but I think for one day in Cordoba it would be a good idea because I think that day may feel really busy. For Sevilla, I have a mixed opinion, I really love to wonder around, get lost and then navigate my way out...but thats...

Thanks so much! We're also the wanderers, but in a new city we sometimes find a walking tour is useful either for orientation upfront, or to clear up questions about things we've noticed. The wine and tapas tour is semi on the radar more for the opportunity to meet new people than to have a drink and a snack. Picking those things carefully, we've been able to have time with other travelers from other countries (not always English-speaking). I'm looking forward to our trip...your pictures are...

Hi Pheymont Try this: Naturanda.com The gentleman's name is David Guillen Garrido. We took a tour of Italica with he and a lovely young lady today. It turned out to be a private tour and we were very impressed. They will do other tours as well. I think we will try them for Triana and are trying to organize something for Baelo Claudia as well.

Will you have a car? I ask, because if you will, you might consider stopping at one or more of the White Towns between Seville & Granada. I stayed a week in a house just outside Iznajar, a lovely little place, and visited a bigger town, Antequera, worth a stop. For a brief stop I'd recommend the smaller town, one of a number in the area, millions of olive trees everywhere. There is no train there although Antequera has a station, but outside the town. Below the town of Iznajar, beside...

I should have said, but no: no car...although I did consider taking one for a day, for the Jerez excursion. Sounds more and more, though, like we'll have to plan on returning to Andalusia another time...

Walking Tours in Andalusia

PHeymont ·
I'm working on details for my February trip to Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada, and I'm up to walking tours--I'd appreciate any experience from the TG community. In Sevilla, our base for 5 days, I've found a Pancho tours 2-hour free tour of main sights that seems like a good orientation, and almost everyone who's reviewed it on TripAdvisor felt it was really good...I hope so. They also have, not free but for 20€/person, a wine and tapas tour...anyone done? For Cordoba, where we'll be from...

I'll be in Southern Spain next month for 9 days, staying mainly in Seville, but with a loop-around at the end (Thursday early to Cordoba, Thursday late to Granada, Friday and Saturday in Granada, and then back to Seville Saturday night for Sunday...

Arcos de la Frontera, Spain (Where Gumbo was #296)

DrFumblefinger ·
Gumbo was visiting the lovely Spanish Hill Town of Arcos de la Frontera in Andalusia. Wander the historic lanes and enjoy the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

Professorabe ·
I agree completely - Arcos is well worth a visit. It lies at the edge of a mountainous area with relatively high rainfall, so you might not see as much sun as you perhaps expect in Spain. However, there are many nice places where you can shelter from a shower. Bar la Cárcel was our favourite. A word of warning: if you have a large hire car, leave it at the bottom. The streets further up are very narrow and we noticed that many local cars looked a bit like this one. Many houses and walls have...

Agreed, Prof Abe. While the lanes are steep at times, it's a town best explored on foot.
