One day, take a private excursion to Segovia and see the ancient Roman aqueduct, atmospheric backstreets, and the fairy-tale Alcazar castle, which perches on a rocky outcrop.

Next, board the high speed train to the Andalusia region. Stop in Cordoba, a capital under the Romans and the Moors, and enjoy a private tour of the UNESCO-listed city center. Continue by private driver to a luxury country estate near Granada. With your expert private guide, tour the extraordinary Alhambra—one of the highlights of Spain—a stunning Moorish castle, palace and garden complex on a hillside overlooking the town. Visit the Generalife, the summer palace and gardens of Moorish royalty. Also tour the labyrinthine streets of the Albaicin—the old Arab Quarter—and discover a world full of winding, hilly streets, Moorish fountains, and teterías (Arabic tearooms). During free time, optional activities can be arranged, such as ATV rides, biking excursions, and private Spanish guitar lessons.
Continue to Barcelona and enjoy personalized private touring in the city. Tour Gaudi’s fantastical structures such as Sagrada Familia and the hillside Parc Guell.
