Short Description

Originally chanted at the toreros during bullfights, “Olé!” is now a term used to congratulate anyone’s exceptional performance in sunny and live-in-the-moment Spain. Prepare for those two happy syllables to roll off your tongue as you discover the past and modern-day feats of everyone from artists and architects to chefs and winemakers throughout this lively tour of Spain. Our most in-depth look at the land of the nonstop fiesta, this 14-day tour leads you from city to city and coast to coast for Picasso and paella, fortresses and flamenco, and Gaudi and the great Rioja wines. Equally satisfying is seeing the legendary backdrops used for some of classic literature’s finest prose—from Granada’s Moorish Alhambra complex to Pamplona’s famous Calle Estafeta, the famous street where the annual “running of the bulls” takes place. Olé!

Company Reviews


Our guide (Billy Guiliana) was highly energetic, positive, and knowledgeable. His English is excellent and his communication of the itinerary was always clear and concise.

Not to leave our driver out of the praise, his name was Daniel (I’m sorry, but I don’t recall his last name). Daniel’s mastery of that huge bus on narrow, city streets was impressive.

Klay was always on top of our itinerary. He was professional, funny, helpful, and patient. He provided us with a fabulous experience!

A competent overview.

A quick & easy taste of the country. Too little time to do much outside of the tour & excursions, but a nice intro to your future adventure.

Lisbom to Madrid....A trip for the memory book!

While the sites are usually great...information about them can be read. It is the people who truly make the experience memorable. Our tour guide(s) were personable and informative..and the other guests were friendly and fun to be with.

My one and only .... GLOBUS

I have used Globus for all of my travel. They have the best itineraries. The most recent trip to Morocco was wonderful. I saw all the "doors" and "tile floors" I wanted. The leather items were perfect. I came home with a small Camel Leather Poof. Just the right size and price. The food for the entire trip was superb! The tour guides are always local and well informed and the coach driver's know how to drive in difficult situations! Hotels are always central and walking to shops and eateries is easy. As for price, the shoulder season trips have been good. (March) I always let them book my air and then I have a transfer to the hotel. This trip to Morocco had "two" lay overs; a long trip, but I couldn't find any better on my own. Lots of companies out there, but Globus has always delivered! Why Change? I'm already booked for my next trip on AVALON; a river cruise in Portugal.
