Luxuries of Spain & Morocco

This private tour offers a taste of the best of southern Spain and Morocco, both known for great weather, beautiful landscapes, wonderful food, impressive UNESCO World Heritage sites, rich cultural traditions and wonderful luxury hotels decorated in the most evocative local style. This tour is also an ideal introduction for more extensive travel to other destinations throughout Spain and Morocco.

Begin in Seville, the capital of Andalusia and a city flavored as much by the sounds of flamenco and the smell of orange blossoms as by its 500-year domination by the Moors. During private touring, explore sights such as the charming neighborhood of Santa Cruz; the world's largest Gothic cathedral with its landmark bell tower, the Giralda; the Torre del Oro, a 13th-century Moorish watchtower; and the gardens and mosaic tile-covered rooms of the Reales Alcazares, a spectacular Moorish palace. On a day trip, visit Ronda, the most dramatic of Andalusia's famed whitewashed villages and a favorite of Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles. En route, visit a modern olive oil mill in the Andalusian mountains and taste a selection of oils from what is considered to be the best producer in the area. One evening, enjoy a private tasting tour of some of Seville's most beloved tapas bars. During leisure time, perhaps shop for upscale, locally-made silk shawls, leather goods, and culinary delicacies. If desired, additional activities can be arranged, including visits to ceramics workshops in the Triana neighborhood, carriage rides through Plaza de Espana and Maria Luisa Park, seeing contemporary architecture such as Metropol Parasol, private flamenco dance or guitar lessons, architecture tours of World Expo buildings, visits to royal horse farms, and excursions to Roman ruins or pueblos blancos (whitewashed villages).

Next, transfer to Granada, stopping en route to tour Cordoba. A capital under the Romans and the Moors, Cordoba has a fascinating history. During private touring, visit the sites clustered in the UNESCO-listed ancient city center such as the enormous Mezquita, a vast, ancient mosque with a forest of horseshoe-shaped pillars, stunning stucco decoration and a Gothic cathedral built right in the middle; the Puente Romano, the bridge the Romans built across the Guadalquivir River; and the Callejon de las Flores, a street where planters overflowing with red geraniums punctuate the whitewashed walls of local houses. Continue on to Granada, one of the richest and most populous cities in Europe during Moorish rule and still one of Spain's most breathtaking cities. During private touring, explore 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 country retreat of Moorish royalty just behind the Alhambra. Wander the labyrinthine streets of the Albaicin—the old Arab Quarter—and discover a world full of winding, hilly streets and alleys; Moorish ramparts, fountains and cármenes (traditional villas); and restaurants, shops and teterías (Arabic tearooms).

Next, fly to Casablanca and begin a classic tour of Morocco. Take a brief tour of Casablanca, then drive to the High Atlas Mountains for two nights at Kasbah Tamadot, one of Morocco's most acclaimed luxury retreats, best known for its traditional Moroccan design and stunning infinity pool overlooking the spectacular mountain views. While there, enjoy private touring to local villages and Berber markets.

Continue to Marrakesh, an ancient city of orange groves and weathered pink buildings at the base of the Atlas Mountains. During private touring, visit fascinating local souks (markets) selling carpets, ceramics, metalware, textiles and other traditional products. Visit the Djemaa el-Fna, a carnivalesque public square where water sellers, snake charmers, magicians and storytellers compete for an audience. See the most interesting palaces, gardens and museums, such as the Jardin Majorelle, stunning gardens created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s; the Palais de la Bahia; the Dar Si Said Museum of Moroccan Arts; the Palmeraie; and the Jardin Menara, a beautiful garden with reflecting pools surrounded by groves of olive trees. Also, browse the city's stylish shops and galleries, and dine in gourmet restaurants that are putting Marrakesh on the culinary map.
