Cultural Tours in Spain
Barcelona and Valencia:
Barcelona offers travelers a lively, modern scene of Spanish culture, which makes it a must visit city in Europe. The capital of Catalonia boasts remarkable architecture, a rich culture, and relaxing beaches. Drive three hours south along the coast and you'll discover Valencia, a less touristy but also impressive Spanish city. Here you can explore the cobble stoned old town with its ancient walls and gates, and enjoy the traditional Spanish meal paella.
Due to its proximity to France, going north from Barcelona is also a tour option. Just a few hours away are the Pyrenee's mountains and the south of France. The ability to experience a world class city like Barcelona, and visit the south of France on the same trip makes this two country tour one of our most popular.
As Spain's largest city, Madrid welcomes guests to see the traditional Spain being transformed into a modern metropolis. Madrid serves as a transportation hub to all of Spain and offers a great connection to the well-known Spanish culture. It's location allows for longer trips to easily combine this tour with other regions including Barcelona, the south of Spain, or even Portugal.
The South of Spain:
A year round destination for travelers, the south of Spain welcomes you with better temperatures and more sun than almost anywhere else in Europe! Lounging on the coastal beaches and experiencing the Andulusian culture are two of the most interesting, and relaxing, reasons to visit this region of the country. The south of Spain also has some of Spain's most visited historic sites including the Alhambra, located on the hills of Granada.
