Andalucia’s rich and fascinating culture is one of the most exciting and distinctive in all of Spain. This area was deeply influenced by more than half a millennium of Muslim rule during the Middle Ages, and this small group walking tour takes you through a magnificent tapestry of people, architecture, landscape and cuisine. This is where flamenco, white towns, ancient palaces, tiny villages, religious processions, Picasso, tapas and sherry converge in a colourful procession of culture that is both charming and somewhat addictive.
We explore the heart of southern Spain, including the cities of Seville, Córdoba and Granada. We walk through smaller villages and ‘white towns’ to meet the locals and experience natural beauty, such as the Grazalema Natural Park declared Reserve of the Biosphere by the UNESCO. The Muslim rulers established universities and brought together the greatest achievements of all of the civilisations they had encountered. We see their stunning legacies, such as the amazing Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita in Córdoba and the Reales Alcázares in Seville.
Food & Wine
We savour authentic Andalusian cuisine, such as gazpacho, pescaito frito (fried fish), jamón from Trevélez, and some of the best tapas in Spain. And of course, indulge in the wines and sherries of the Jerez region and take a guided tour of one of the most illustrious Bodegas in Jerez.

We had a marvellous time in Andalucia and cannot speak too highly of Rosa and Riccardo – they were unfailingly courteous, helpful and professional at all times and made it the memorable trip it was. Loved Spain. Thank you so much for a really well designed trip.
Mary and John – Food, wine and walking in Southern Spain
From the people, culture, food, wonderful history and architecture of Andalucia’s Moorish past to the natural beauty of its walks in smaller villages and sierras this is a stunning trip. Having travelled with Epicurious before, we had high expectations, but these were exceeded. Quite simply a must do trip if you enjoy fine food, great accomodation and walking in areas without tour buses and crowds.
Food, wine and walking in Southern Spain – Robert Gillam
Such a wonderful trip exploring so much of the Andalucia area. Each day had yet another highlight, from beautiful hikes, to exploring the white villages, eating amazing tapas, and visiting stunning landmarks. All in the expert hands of Jim, our extraordinary guide.
Food, wine and walking in Southern Spain, Mary Connell
This was a wonderful trip with enormous variety of experiences that would not have been easily available to an independent traveller. Everything was extremely well organised and ran like very relaxed clockwork! The hotels were generally excellent, the food delicious and Jim the guide was knowledgeable, considerate of all and fun to be with. I didn’t know much about this part of the world and found its history all so interesting -the beautiful architecture, the sophisticated use of water during Europe’s “dark ages” and, at least for some centuries, the religious tolerance shown. If you’ve not been, go -and with Epicurious travel.
