«Why is our tour unlike any other? It isn't only about art, or nature, or ancient artefacts — it is about life itself, in its richest sense. Seaside, mountain peaks, olive groves, the fairy-tale-like architecture of tiny towns, and, most importantly, the people, with their stories, traditions, and habits. This perspective of Andalusia is truly unique! It is not often that one has the chance to visit an ancient family castle and get acquainted with its hosts!»
