Please note, GUERNSEY DEPARTURES will leave on Friday 1st November at 10.20 with FlyBe to Jersey for arrival at 10.40 with an overnight stay with breakfast at the 3* Best Western Royal Hotel in the centre of St. Helier. You will join the rest of the group on the Saturday morning at the airport, together with your Tour Manager. Airport transfers can be booked at an additional cost.

Day 1: Jersey to Malaga – DIRECT flight

The direct flight to Malaga (2 hours 25 minutes) will depart at 08.50 from Jersey Airport. Your Tour Manager will be waiting at the airport to assist with check-in. On arrival, we will get our first glimpse of Andalusia and its sunny coast, the Costa del Sol, before transferring to the first hotel of our stay, the 4* Hotel Ilunion in Malaga. The hotel is conveniently located a few metres from the beach and marina, whilst offering easy access into the heart of the city.

Malaga Scape

This evening we will enjoy a welcome dinner together at the hotel.

Day 2: Malaga to Granada

After a hearty breakfast at the hotel, we will embark on a guided panoramic tour of Malaga, unlocking the secrets of the Costa del Sol‘s biggest city. Our English speaking guide will share in-depth knowledge of Malaga’s rich and fascinating history dating back over 2000 years. Sights will include the magnificent Gibralfaro Castle which since the 10th century has stood guard over the city and busy port from its elevated position, and the imposing and awe-inspiring Alcazaba fortress, one of the best known symbols of Malaga and on every visitors list of must-sees.

Generalife Gardens, Granada

Later, we will depart by private coach to the Land of a Thousand Castles, the city of Granada. Upon arrival in Granada, out Tour Manager will assist with checking-in at our hotel for the upcoming two nights at the 4* Gran Hotel Luna in Granada.

The remainder of the day will be at leisure, time perhaps to have a first glance of the city and its beautiful baroque cathedral located only 10 minutes away from the hotel before returning for dinner together which is included.

Day 3: Granada and the Alhambra Palace & Generalife

Following breakfast in the hotel, we will be picked up by coach and taken to the world- famous Alhambra of Granada. On everyone’s travel list, the majestic Alhambra and its Generalife Gardens are the perfect example of the Moorish influence in Andalusia.

The Alhambra was so called because of its reddish walls (in Arabic, “qa'lat al-Hamra'” means Red Castle). It is located on top of the hill, al-Sabika, on the left bank of the river Darro, to the west of the city of Granada and in front of the neighbourhoods of the Albaicin and of the Alcazaba. The Alhambra is located on a strategic point, with a view over the whole city and it is believed that other buildings were already on that site before the Muslims arrived.

Alhambra Palace

The Generalife occupy the Cerro del Sol (‘slopes of the hill of the sun’), from where there is a complete view over the city and the valleys of the rivers Genil and Darro. There are different interpretations of the meaning of its name: the Governor's Garden or the Architect's Garden or Alarife, in Arabic. The Generalife became a leisure place for the kings of Granada when they wanted to get away from the official affairs of the palace.

After an English guided tour of these two renowned landmarks, we will have some free time to enjoy the sites at our own pace before returning to our hotel in Granada. From there, we will have the rest of the day to do as we wish. Dinner will be at leisure but options for dining in Granada are endless, with something for every taste and budget. We recommend seeking out one of the cosy tapas bars for a real taste of Spain!

*Please note that the timetable for Day 3 is subject to change dependent on confirmed time slots at the Alhambra Palace and will be confirmed closer to departure.

Day 4: Day at Leisure

Today is completely at leisure, a chance to catch our breath, relax and explore the fascinating city of Granada and all of the history it has to offer.

Why not take a walking tour of the city, book an excursion out into the surrounding Sierra Nevada landscape, or take the opportunity to enjoy the spa and leisure facilities at our hotel.

Day 5: Granada, Cordoba & Seville

This morning it is time to say adios to Granada as we make our way to one of the most popular destinations of Andalusia, Cordoba. It was an important Roman city and a major Islamic centre in the Middle Ages. It’s best known for La Mezquita, an immense mosque dating from 784 A.D.

Cordoba Dance Woman

A visit to the mesmerising Mezquita and its familiar columned prayer hall is, of course, on the cards for today. One of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, the Mezquita is a symbol of the worldly, sophisticated culture that flourished here more than a millennium ago when Cordoba was the capital of Islamic Spain and Western Europe's biggest, most cultured city. When we enter Cordoba’s most important monument, we will witness why it is considered a symbol of the many religious changes the city has undergone over the centuries. Originally a Catholic church, it was converted into an Islamic mosque in the Middle Ages, then back into a church after the Reconquista. With its otherworldly architecture, the Mezquita is considered one of the most accomplished Moorish monuments in the world.

After our English guided tour, we will have some time to explore the city at our own pace before enjoying lunch in a local restaurant. The capital of the Cordoba province, with whitewashed courtyards, colourful cobblestone alleys, historic monuments and a fascinating melting pot of Muslim, Christian and Jewish culture, is bound to enchant. Wander around its compact winding lanes lined with flowering balconies, old bodegas, boisterous bars and artisan craft shops.

Later that day, we will drive to Seville, the capital of southern Spain. We will check-in at the 4* Silken Al Andalus in Seville ideally located a short distance from the centre of the city.

Enjoy this evening at your own pace; we recommend a leisurely evening spent in one of the many tapas bars surrounding the captivating Plaza de España, a beautiful example of the Mudejar architectural style, and one of the must-see landmarks of the city.

Day 6: Seductive Seville

After breakfast, discover the heart of Andalusia with a guided tour of seductive Seville. The capital and largest city of Andalusia, looking down on the Guadalquivir river, will charm and win you over. Its historic centre, lorded over by a colossal Gothic cathedral, is an intoxicating mix of resplendent Mudéjar palaces, baroque churches and winding medieval lanes. Flamenco clubs keep the intimacy and intensity of this centuries-old tradition alive whilst aristocratic mansions recall the city’s Moorish past including the 16th-century metropolis rich off the back of New World trade.

One of Seville‘s major landmarks is its cathedral. Included in our guided tour, Seville’s immense cathedral is awe-inspiring in its scale and majesty. The world’s largest Gothic cathedral, it was built between 1434 and 1517 over the remains of what had previously been the city’s main mosque. Highlights include the Giralda, the mighty bell tower which incorporates the mosque’s original minaret, the monumental tomb of Christopher Columbus, and the Capilla Mayor with an astonishing gold altarpiece.

Seville

Our English-speaking guide will also take us around to secret cobbled lanes and hidden plazas where locals meet for a refreshing glass of Andalusian wine, before hiding away in the shade or inside their traditional Mediterranean houses for the Siesta.

The remainder of today is free to continue exploring the city. This evening we will dine together at Tablao Palacio del Embrujo whilst enjoying an intoxicating Flamenco show.

Day 7: Ronda & Malaga

After breakfast we will check out of our Seville Hotel and depart for Ronda. Ronda is a mountain-top city that is set dramatically above a deep gorge. This gorge, El Tajo in Spanish, separates the city’s 15th-century ‘new’ town from its old town, dating to Moorish rule. It has a dramatic history filled with outlaws, bandits, guerrilla warriors and rebels. Its spectacular location on top of El Tajo gorge and its status as the largest of Andalucía’s white towns have made it hugely popular with tourists. It is said that modern bullfighting was invented in Ronda, in the late 18th century. The town’s fame was spread further by its close association with American Europhiles such as Ernest Hemingway, a lover of bullfighting, and Orson Welles, whose ashes are buried in the town. A local guide will lead us around this iconic town centre and share with us the stories of Ronda’s eventful and sometimes, brutal, past.

Ronda

After lunch in a local restaurant, we will depart for Malaga where we will once again check into the 4* Hotel Ilunion in Malaga. We will enjoy our last evening in Spain sharing dinner at a local restaurant with our travel companions, the perfect occasion to reflect on the wonders of the trip and the region.

Day 8: Malaga to the Channel Islands

Today we wish a fond farewell to the charms of Andalusia and will be collected from our hotel for the short transfer to Malaga Airport. The flight will depart direct for Jersey at 12.55 and will land at 14.20 local time. Guernsey clients will be accompanied by their Tour Manager to departures in Jersey Airport to check-in for their onward flight, which will depart at 17.10.
