If you are thinking about a small group tour holiday in Andalucia or traveling around the Southern Spain area YOUR ANDALUCIA TOUR HOLIDAYS can organise the perfect tour for you.
Below you will find a selection of our frequently asked questions.
Our clients are generally more independently minded, and don’t want to be bossed or ushered around in a large herd. They want to get to see the iconic sites of Andalucia and they don’t want to waste time or money, hiring cars, planning routes, or getting stressed out doing city driving in a foreign land. They want to be given the background information on the places that they will visit but they don’t want to be lectured to. They want their guide to be more of a friend than a driver for the short time that they are here, they want to be able to relax in the evenings, and above all, they want to be given a 100% professional service.
No. The flexibility that we can offer means that we can customize your tour for as long or as short as you like.
The Small Group tour holidays in Andalusia are available all year round.
Yes, we are pleased to provide our villa based Small Group Cultural Tour and to arrange private tours.
To enable our clients to get the most out of each tour day, we like to try to be in the vehicle for 9.00am each morning and aim to have you back at your accommodation for between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, however should the clients like to make any changes to these times, then we can accommodate this.
No, you do not need to be able to speak Spanish to get the maximum out of our small group tour holidays in Andalusia. Our guides are bilingual in Spanish and English and accompany the clients up to the lunch hour each day. However, even if you do have just a little grasp of Spanish, you will be surprised how far that will take you and we constantly find that our clients get a great enjoyment out of ‘trying to speak the lingo’.
It’s very simple! You just have to make contact by email and let us know what ideas you have. We will then work out a tour to fit your requirements and agree the details of your tour in writing by return. We will then ask you at that point to confirm the acceptance of the tour in writing and to make your deposit payment.
Again, it’s very simple! Once we have agreed the details of your Tour in writing, you can then make your deposit and balance payments to our PAYPAL account. Alternative methods of payment can be arranged, but only with prior agreement.
We have had children as young as 5 years old on the 5- and 7-day tours and they have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Should you have children of a younger age than this please advise us from the outset, and this will enable us to tailor the tour to suit.
Yes, our guides will be only too happy to advise you in this matter and can help you with your orders at lunch time, should you require.
We suggest Malaga airport as the collection point as it is the main international airport in Andalusia, however, should you choose to arrive by train or indeed fly into Seville airport, we will be only too happy to collect you from there.
Depending on your ongoing travel plans after the tour, we will endeavour to make your departure day as easy as possible. To enable us to do this we ask that you advise us as early as possible of the details of your departure.
That depends on the tour that you take but there is not an onerous amount of walking on either the on any of our tour, as we park as close as possible to the historic centre of the towns/cities that we visit.
Our tours are not suitable for people with certain physical disabilities.
That depends on the bookings that we have but we rarely tour with more than eight people, unless it is a family group.
The 300 days of sunshine that Andalucia gets each year means that rain is not a common problem, however, should you visit during the month of February or March you may well experience some days with rain. A good site to check the weather forecast is www.eltiempo.es . A light rain jacket or umbrella is usually sufficient during these days.
This depends on the time of the year that you choose to visit. Ask us again when you make your booking, and we will advise you accordingly.
Yes, we can. You just have to tell us what you want to do when you are in Andalucia and we will build the perfect tour for you; places, activities, hotels, …. you just name it.
Our guides speak both English and Spanish.
No. Our tours are designed to give you the benefit of our local knowledge up to lunch time each day, after which we allow you to choose when and where you want to have lunch and how you will spend your afternoon. Our guide will provide you with his mobile phone number on the first day of the tour so that help, or advice will always only be a phone call away.
Guidebooks are not provided as our guide will tell you all the information relevant to the tour each day and because most people tend to arrive with a guidebooks anyway. Our guide will however provide you with a tourist map.
Yes, to the main monuments in Granada, Sevilla, and Cordoba.
Our tours recognize that you have chosen not to be part of the coach tour ‘herd’, so whilst we do have a pre-set timetable, designed to make sure that you get the most out of the tour each day, there is most definitely no minute-by-minute format, and we have flexibility built in.
The private villa, Villa Samuel, has all mod cons and is best suited for clients who like to relax in the evening and to eat in, and who also like a good deal of privacy. With the 40 square metre pool, bar/bbq area and quiet terraces it is just as ideal for couples as it is for family groups. It is however a private villa and not a hotel, this should be borne in mind. There are a couple of bar/restaurants within easy walking distance and the centre of town is only 4km away where you can find an abundance of places to choose from for your evening meal. Travel to and from town can be easily arranged.
Villa Samuel is located close to the geographical centre of Andalucia on the outskirts of the town of Puente Genil, in the district of El Palomar. This makes it a perfect location for our villa based tours and from which to explore Andalucia in all directions.
We pride our self in our friendliness, flexibility, and willingness to please. You can expect nothing less than a 100% professional service from Your Andalucia Tour Holidays.
We expect our clients to be open minded, courteous, and respectful of other people and other cultures.
We can provide bespoke tours for parties of four or more.
