Enjoy a relaxed, informal exploration of the Albaicín district, the one-time Moorish quarter of Granada and now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and sample an exclusive tasting menu of specialties from Granada and Andalusia. Your resident private guide will show you how this medieval Islamic city has kept its identity into the modern age, explaining its social history and character in anecdotal style, and answering your questions about current-day Spain. As you walk through its cat’s cradle of twisting alleyways, you will come across stunning views of the city, the majestic Alhambra palaces and, beyond, the often snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada. You will pass by churches built on the sites of mosques, stroll underneath the walls of the scented gardens of cármenes, and stop in squares to take in the slow rhythms of daily life in this most traditional and yet singular neighborhood. After your exploration, enjoy a delicious meal in a delightful garden-patio of a restaurant in the Albaicín to sample an exclusive tasting menu of specialties from Granada and Andalusia. First you will try some extra virgin olive oils, cured hams and artisanal cheeses, olives and almonds, then you will be served a selection of seasonal dishes such as remojón granadino, a refreshing salad of salt cod with oranges, or habas con chipirones, baby broad beans served with tender squid and aquail egg.

Day 4: Granada

Enjoy a private tour with a local guide as you visit the UNESCO world heritage site of the Alhambra palace and gardens. On a rocky hill, on the banks of the River Darro, protected by mountains and amongst the eldest quarter in the city, the Alhambra rises up like an imposing castle with its distinctive reddish stone in its ramparts that prevent the outside world from seeing the delicate beauty enclosed within. Originally designed as a military area, the Alhambra became the residence of royalty and the court of Granada in the middle of XIII century. The complex of monuments has also an independent palace opposite the Alhambra; The Generalife, which is surrounded by orchards and beautiful gardens which you will also visit. (Tour includes entrance into the palace).

Please note that this tour does not include transfers to or from the palace. Your guide will meet you at the Alhambra ticket office (best to take a local cab from your hotel). At the end of your tour, you can either choose to walk back down the hill to explore the city, or return by taxi (payable by you locally). If you prefer us to arrange private transfers, please let us know.

There is a wide range of optional active activities that you can add to your tour; consider any of the following: a Granada Countryside Walk,  a guided Wine Stroll,  a Bike Tour around the Sierra Nevada mountain range or Horseback riding. Please speak to your Sales Advisor if any of these are of interest.

Enjoy navigating the custom of tapas with a local expert. Going out for drinks and tapas – or “tapeando” – is an event enjoyed throughout Spain, and everywhere has its local variations. The frustration that many visitors experience is that this can mean never quite knowing the “rules of the game”, and a feeling that the authentic bars and tapas are eluding them. A local resident guide will steer you away from the comfortable but bland, sit-down options and take you into the places where locals go, jostling at the bar for elbow-room, and sampling some great dishes amid a lively atmosphere. There is an option to sample vegetarian tapas if requested. (Includes drinks & tapas in three different bars). (Vegetarian on request).

Your guide will meet you at your hotel at 9am. Explore the cultural and spiritual center of Morocco during this full day tour of Fes. Also known as Fes el Bali, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was founded in the 9th century, and is home to the world's oldest university. The city of Fes reached its true economic and cultural height in the 13th–14th centuries under the Merinids, when it replaced Marrakech as the capital of the kingdom.  Although the political capital of Morocco was transferred to Rabat in 1912, Fes has retained its status as the country's Artisan centre. Artisan workshops in the medina are as active today as they were 100 years ago, and strongly contribute to the city’s industrial economy. Trades such as blacksmithing, leather working, ceramics, silk, tapestries, and sculpting are still practiced in these workshops today. The original ramparts still protect this ancient city and its estimated 9000 narrow passageways and bustling streets.

Day 10: Marrakech

A private vehicle with English speaking driver will be at your disposal for the day.

Your tour usually starts at the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque. This mosque's beautiful minaret dominates the skyline of Marrakech and can be seen from almost every approach to the city thanks to a long-standing planning ordinance that forbids any other building in the old city to rise above the height of a palm tree. You will also visit the El-Bahia Palace.  This 19th century palace is elaborate in its decoration and was built over a period of seven years for Ba Ahmed, the son of the Grand Vizier Si Moussa. There are row after row of apartments—that once housed Ahmed's harem—a trapezoidal garden, a huge tiled courtyard, and many hidden treasures, both in the form of antique objects d'art and the palace's convergence of Andalusian and Moorish architecture. One of most visited sites in Morocco is the Saadian Tombs, which were only accessible via the mosque next door. However, in 1917 they were opened to the public and can now be accessed via a narrow passage that leads to an enclosed garden watched over by two mausoleums that include more than one hundred mosaic-decorated tombs. The Koranic School Medersa Ben Youssef is a Theological college founded by the Merenid Sultan Abu Hassan in the 14th century.  It was restored in 1564 by the Saadians who made it the largest theological college in the Maghreb and a rival to the important Medersa Bou Inania in Fés.

Day 11: Marrakech

A private vehicle with English speaking driver will be at your disposal for the day.

Enjoy your tour today of the High Atlas Mountains with lunch at Kasbah Tamadot, which is about an hour from Marrakech. On the way, you'll make a brief stop at the Berber villages of Tahanoute and continue to the village of Asni before arriving at Tamadot. The Kasbah Tamadot is located on the outskirts of Asni, a small Berber village where the road branches off to Imlil and the Toubkal Massif. The Kasbah Tamadot was seen by Sir Richard’s mother who realized the potential for creating a unique environment and after a very painstaking period of renovation, Tamadot was born. It offers stunning views of the mountains and valleys, including a Berber village hugging the opposite bank of the river. The “Kanoun” restaurant at Tamadot (named after the traditional Berber bread oven) features an outdoor terrace and rooftop for dining on warmer days or inside when cooler. Tamadot also has an excellent wine list. After lunch at The Kasbah Tamadot, your guide will take you to explore the mountains by foot.

Please note that Kasbah Tamadot reservations are not always guaranteed as the hotel may be booked exclusively for private functions. In the event that this occurs, you will be offered an alternative option or a refund.

  • Janet M. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    My experience with Kensington Tours for my Safari was the best planned trip I have ever taken. The coordination, experience and knowledge of personnel during our visits excelled. I had high expectations but it exceeded all my thoughts!

  • Padma P. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    We were very happy with all the arrangements that were made for us. We will always use you for all our future trips.

  • Eve T. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    We cannot emphasize enough how amazing our guide was, both in personality and knowledge, and how much he added to our trip. We truly enjoyed spending time with him, which is a very good thing since much of that time included some very long car rides! We also loved how most accommodations had so much personality and life to them. We much prefer unique smaller accommodations that almost feel hand-crafted over a more standard experience you can get almost anywhere.

  • Beth N. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    THE TOUR WAS EXTREMELY WELL ORGANIZED. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE GUIDES. Customer service throughout out South Africa was awesome!

  • Toni L. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    Truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life's travels! Kensington guides were extremely knowledgeable and personable. I could only address them as guides for a few hours as they quickly became my friends. You customize every aspect of my trip to Rwanda and Tanzania to my liking. I could not have asked for more. Grateful for the professionalism and attention to detail as I traveled by myself as a female, always feeling safe. I wish I could find the words for accolades that adequately describe my journey.

  • Joel G. — June 08, 2016 — Africa

    Our guide, Fidelis was phenomenal. Not only a skilled tracker but a walking encyclopedia of history, geology, geography, animal behavior etc. Marc, our trip planner, was patient, understanding and pro-active in suggesting trip elements that he felt would meet our needs. Fantastic.

  • Nikhita D. — June 08, 2016 — Africa
