Description of Spain small group holiday

Youíll kick off this Spain small group holiday in the buzzing city of Madrid, where you have time to explore the museums and restaurants, before heading to beautiful Granada, which is backed by the Sierra Nevada Mountains and famous for its Moorish architecture. Seville, known for its oranges, tapas and flamenco, comes next. Here you can visit the world's largest Gothic cathedral as well as the grand buildings of Alcazar, a complex of palaces used by both Moorish and Christian rulers.

After all that culture, itís time for a spell at the beach. Youíll head to the windswept beach town of Tarifa, on the Costa de la Luz, where you can go whale and dolphin watching or just relax on the promenade. Andalusia is next on the agenda, and youíll visit the towns of Cordoba and Ronda, both full of beautiful architecture, excellent restaurants and lively bars.

Your final stop is the Catalan city of Barcelona, whose museums and galleries, Gothic architecture, foodie scene and non-stop nightlife make it a city you won't forget any time soon.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

As company our responsibilities donít stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

As a company we aim to contribute to the environmental preservation of the destinations we visit and to reduce any negative impacts our operations may have. This translates to actions such as using local transport where safe to do so in order to reduce emissions, observing all national and marine park visitor rules and operating a Ďtake in, take back outí waste management system, to name but a few examples. Through our inhouse foundation we also invest money into environmental initiatives that benefit the planet, including restoring kelp forests to help reverse the effects of global warming and protecting endangered species such as sea turtles and elephants.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. On trips like this through Europe for example, dress standards are conservative, and we recommend modest dress when visiting churches.

We take care to use local transport throughout and stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans and recruit our on the ground team from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


So many things, but the hike in Ronda what so memorable-- watching the light change with the sun rise, all the fruit trees we strolled through and the stunning view of the walled city. The chance to shop for and make Paella in Valencia was also a huge hit.
Exploring the food and drink in the back alleys of Seville was wonderful too. The
Alhambra was spectacular. Wandering through the orange trees in the gardens of the Moorish palaces was so special.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Travel light; bring comfortable walking sandals...definitely eat and rest when the
locals do to take full advantage of the local color and your time at each stop. Rent the local city bikes - keep moving so you can enjoy all the wonderful food! Eat with the group (my group was small - just 5 of us) so that you can take advantage of a large selection of tapas and get a broader experience. Read up on every city to prioritize what you want to do - you can do a lot in the day and 1/2 you will average at each stop.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We went to and supported local restaurants and took advantage of local tours, so I think so.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Was great! Vivi shared her favorite haunts, gave us the local view and made sure we all had a wonderful time.
