Day excursion details

Here are some details on the day excursions we do to places such as Nerja caves complex, Frigiliana Granada, Ronda, Cordoba or Seville.  Ideal if you fancy exploring the fascinating Moorish history of Al Andalus in the cultural cities such as Granada or Cordoba, wandering the cobbled streets of hilltop Pueblos Blancos like Frigiliana, or in the case of Nerja caves simply wish to disappear underground to marvel at the sights in the cool.

All day trips include coach or taxi transport, guide services, admission fees etc as detailed in their individual descriptions.

Don't forget that we can also organise trips elsewhere for you in Andalucia, or even day (or longer) trips over to Africa if required - Commencing late summer we should also be offering Excursions to Morocco, North Africa!
Just ask for details either when booking, or at the welcome evening and we get it Totally Sorted for you.
