12 day group trip from £3330
Check into your hotel in central Barcelona and explore the city at your own pace.
Today you’ll join a cooking class and learn how to make that most Spanish of dishes, paella. You’ll then dine on your creation. You may need to walk off all that food so take a stroll down Las Ramblas and pay a visit to Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia.
This morning you’ll travel to Penedès just outside of Barcelona. This is the region famous for producing cava. You’ll enjoy a tour of the vineyards, a wine tasting or two and lunch.
Return to Barcelona early evening.
Take a high-speed train to Madrid and check into your hotel. You’ll go for a panoramic tour of the city by car and on foot. Dinner at a top restaurant.
Today you’ll take a trip to Spain’s historic capital, Toledo – it’s just outside Madrid. You’ll meet a local guide who’ll give you a tour of Toledo’s medieval streets. On your way back to Madrid you’ll visit a winery in the countryside for a tour of the vineyards and tasting.
Today you’ll be heading to La Rioja. This is, of course, the famous region that produces Rioja. You’ll visit a winery and try some of the best local Riojas with lunch.
Today you’ll go for a spot of winery hopping around La Rioja. You’ll tour the vineyards, learn about the various vintages and indulge in a wine tasting lunch. Go full-on Eddie and Patsy, if you must.
Today you’ll transfer to San Sebastián in the Basque Country. You’ll discover Basque cuisine by sampling a selection of pintxos (kind of like tapas).
You’ll be dining in a gastronomic society. This’ll be quite an experience as they are usually only open to members. You’ll buy the ingredients and then prepare them at the society. After lunch you can unwind on the local beaches.
On your way back from San Sebastián you’ll head west to Bilbao. Here you can explore its famous art scene, including the iconic Guggenheim. You’ll then take a flight south to Seville in Andalusia.
This morning a tour guide will meet you and show you around the city. As Andalusia is the home of flamenco you’ll attend a flamenco performance in the evening, and then go on a tapas tour.
Andalusia is famous for its ham, especially Iberico ham. You’ll visit a pig farm and meet some of the pigs. You’ll learn about how they are raised and then sample some of the divine Spanish ham.
Today you’ll join a cooking class and learn how to make classic Andalusian cuisine with a professional chef. You’ll then enjoy your creations with some fine wine.
