Day 2: Seville

Breakfast at the hotel.

Meet your private guide to start a complete Seville tour. In the company of your guide you will visit the two most important landmarks in the city: Seville Cathedral and Reales Alcazares.

We will walk the Santa Cruz Quarter, the old Jewish section and the most enchanting of Seville, with narrow and winding cobblestone streets and whitewashed facades, visiting the interior of the Cathedral and the Reales Alcazares.

The Alcazar is the oldest Royal Palace still in use in whole Europe and it was listed by Unesco in 1987 as World Heritage. It hosts palaces from different ages and the gardens recall its Moorish past. The construction started in Medieval times, but several art styles are present today in the complex, including gothic, mudéjar, renaissance and baroque.

Seville Cathedral is the biggest one in Gothic style of the world, with wooden main altar. It is located in the same place since 12th century, so it was a Mosque in the past, from which it remained only the minaret, now called “La Giralda” where the bells are located.

After the half day tour, time to rest in a fine Sevillian restaurant, where we will taste delicious Andalusian dishes paired with good local wines.

Enjoy a slice of Seville nightlife and hospitality with a dinner and show this evening. Make your way independently to El Arenal Tablao Flamenco where you'll begin your evening with a magical night of authentic flamenco performance, celebrating Andalusia's unique, world-renowned combination of song and dance. Relax, enjoy a courtesy drink, and watch a show with up to 17 professional artists on stage at once - bringing the mesmerizing art of flamenco to life. Afterward, continue to nearby Bar Postiguillo where you'll be treated to a delicious, traditional tapas dinner in a unique Andalusian ambiance. Bull heads grace 18th century stone walls, lamps hang from the ceiling and glow with warmth, creating an inviting and social feel, while creative twists in the kitchen make this tapas bar a buzzworthy favorite.

Day 3: Seville - Granada

Meet your private driver and vehicle for a transfer to Granada. Approximate travel time is 3 hours.

Meet your private guide and depart from your hotel on foot for a half-day walking tour, discovering the historical, monumental and cultural richness of Granada. Explore the city's historic neighborhoods like the Albaicín district, the one-time Moorish quarter of Granada, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See how this medieval Islamic city has kept its identity into the modern age, with your guide explaining its social history and character in anecdotal style. As you walk through its twisting alleyways, you'll 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. Next to Albaicín, stroll to the hill of Sacromonte, another typical quarter famous for its cave dwellings, Romani community, and flamenco tradition. You'll also enjoy a visit to the stunning 16th century Gothic Cathedral, one of the summits of the Spanish Renaissance. The cathedral's Royal Chapel is built with a single nave, and holds the tomb of King Ferdinand, the Queen Isabella, Philip the First and Joanna the First, and Miguel, the Prince of Asturias.

 

Accommodation: Villa Oniria

The boutique hotel Villa Oniria is housed in a 19th century manor house in downtown Granada, carefully restored according to the style and techniques of traditional Andalusian palaces. With 31 comfortable and modern rooms spanning two floors, Villa Oniria offers somewhere to escape to in every corner, such as the garden, bursting with aromatic plants and framed by two fountains which lead to a beautiful inner patio, or the on-site spa. After a day of exploration, unwind with a gastronomic experience at the hotel's chic La Fabula restaurant.

Day 4: Granada

Make your way independently to Alhambra Palace, where you'll meet up with your local guide for a private tour of this wonderfully picturesque  UNESCO World Heritage Site. On a rocky hill, on the banks of the River Darro, protected by mountains and within the eldest quarter of the city, the Alhambra rises up like an imposing castle, with its distinctive reddish stone in its ramparts which prevent the outside world from seeing the delicate beauty enclosed within. The Alhambra ranks among the world’s finest examples of Islamic art with carved cedar, intermittent stucco work, and gorgeous mosaics. Originally designed as a military area, the Alhambra became the residence of royalty and the court of Granada in the middle of the 13th century. The complex of monuments is formed by the stunning Moorish palaces, including the Palace of King Charles V, and the Generalife, which is surrounded by orchards, tranquil pools, fountains and beautiful gardens, which you'll also visit.

At the end of your tour, you can either choose to walk back down the hill to explore the city, or return by taxi (paid locally). If you prefer us to arrange private transfers, please let us know.

For the more active traveler, Granada and Andalusia provide a range of optional (not included) activities that may be of interest. From a guided countryside walk, a wine and vineyards stroll, to a bike tour around the Sierra Nevada mountain range, or horseback riding, there are plenty of options to keep you moving. Please speak with your Travel Consultant if any of these are of interest.

Enjoy a private tapas tour in Granada with the insight and knowledge of a local guide, providing a unique experience through the picturesque streets of this lively city. Granada is unique in terms of tapas, as it has become more of an art form than going out for a meal. Tapas are served automatically as part of ordering a drink in virtually any bar you go into, and each place tends to have its own specialty. The art is in knowing the best places, and the tricks to getting quality tapas, which you'll learn along the way. A drink and tapas will be provided at three separate restaurants as selected by your experienced guide, allowing you to be able to enjoy the very best tapas of the city.

Day 8: Fes

Meet your guide in the hotel lobby this morning, then set out to explore Fes, the cultural and spiritual center of Morocco. Also known as Fes el Bali, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was founded in the 9th century and is also home to the world's oldest university, founded in 859 CE. The city of Fes reached its true economic and cultural height through the 13th and14th centuries under the Merinids, at which time it replaced Marrakesh 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. Workshops hosting master craftsmen in the medina are as busy today as they were hundreds of years ago, and strongly contribute to the city’s industrial economy. Trades such as blacksmithing, leather working, ceramics, silk weaving, and sculpting are still practiced, and you’ll sure to witness this firsthand throughout the day. The tannery of Fes, colorful and pungent, is a must-see; here, workers labor in small pools filled with specific dyes to treat their wares. The original ramparts still protect this ancient city, and its estimated 9,000 passageways and bustling streets are a joy to explore. With a private driver and expert guide at your side, discover the essential highlights of Fes over the course of this full-day tour.

Day 10: Marrakech

The sweeping and dynamic history of Marrakech – an imperial capital in centuries past – is best appreciated with the help of a private guide. Today, begin your tour of the Ochre City with a visit to the Koutoubia Mosque. Constructed in the 12th century, it’s known for its a beautiful minaret which can be seen from nearly every approach to the city due to a long-standing ordinance that forbids any other building in the old city to rise above the height of a palm tree. After viewing Koutoubia Mosque, visit nearby El-Bahia Palace. Translated to English, the El Bahia Palace means “Palace of Brilliance,” and this incredible, ornate and meticulously crafted property is endowed with some of the finest ceramics in the country. This 19th century palace was built over a seven-year period for Ba Ahmed, the son of the Grand Vizier Si Moussa. Featuring a trapezoidal garden, tiled courtyard, and many hidden treasures in the form of antique objects d'art and the palace's convergence of Andalusian and Moorish architecture, it is a must-see site. Your next stop is one of most coveted archeological sites in Morocco: the Saadian Tombs. Opened to the public in 1917, they are accessed through a narrow passage which leads to an enclosed garden and into two mausoleums that host more than one hundred mosaic-decorated tombs. The Musee De Marrakech, your next stop, is an important example of Moorish architecture, and the main courtyard and chambers are host to impressive feats of design; elaborate archways, gorgeous stained glass, and a collection of ceramics that are sure to dazzle. Finally, wander through the mesmerizing souks of Marrakesh. With 18 souks selling a dizzying array of handicrafts, textiles, spices, foods, electronics, antiques and everything in between, the souks of Marrakech are the perfect place to find a keepsake to bring home, or to simply get in touch with day-to-day life in the Red City.

Day 11: Marrakech

Today, set out with your guide and driver to explore the High Atlas Mountains, accenting the experience with lunch at Kasbah Tamadot, an incredible oasis-like resort. On the way, you'll make brief stops at the Berber villages of Tahanoute and 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. Affording stunning views of the mountains and valleys, including a Berber village hugging the opposite bank of the river, 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 that pairs excellently with their delicious meals. After lunch at The Kasbah Tamadot, your guide will lead the way through the mountains by foot, and after trekking through the Atlas range, will bring you to an awaiting vehicle which will transfer you to your hotel in Marrakech.

  • Angelia M — June 22, 2019 — Africa

    My Kenya trip was seriously the best trip of my life, and I absolutely loved every second of it! It was my dream vacation and the reality far exceeded the dream. Catherine, my trip consultant, answered all of my many questions and made sure everything went super smoothly. Daniel, my guide, was so fun, interesting, and informative. He went out of his way to make sure my trip was special. I really can't put into words how much I loved it other than I'm already thinking about another trip to Africa. I will definitely be using Kensington Tours again!

  • Chris S — May 17, 2019 — Africa

    Our guide Elisha was absolutely incredible! He was friendly, helpful, funny, and remarkably knowledgeable about the area, the animals, and especially the birds! The accommodations were excellent and the staff at those places was wonderful. The Kubu Kubu tent camp in Serengeti was particularly special, and we felt truly appreciated and pampered by the staff. With their smiling help, we even learned some Swahili! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

  • Paul E — May 01, 2019 — Africa

    We had no idea what to expect on this trip but exceeded even our wildest imagination. Daniel, with Kensington, laid out a wonderful plan. The upfront quality and detail on the proposal really sold us. The guides and local support crews on the trip, were on time, personable, and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Shamiel with Ilios Travel in Cape Town. He was joy and clearly loved sharing Cape Town with us.

  • Thomas S — June 14, 2019 — Africa

    Karen Johnson was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. Karen was readily available during the planning process and took the time to talk with and listen to us to find out about our wants and needs and ultimately designed our perfect vacation. We can not speak highly enough about her abilities.

  • Michael S — June 13, 2019 — Africa

    The trip was the best thing we have ever done. The people we dealt with were professional and made sure every part of our trip was trouble free.

  • Raymond D — March 22, 2019 — Africa

    The guides were friendly and very accommodating throughout my trip. One of the guides took me to the oldest tea house as a bonus on my tour. It was great being with the people and enjoying a cup of tea. My driver invited me to have Turkish coffee which was a very nice touch to my trip. The accommodations were phenomenal, being near the pyramids was outside of this world. The Kempinski Nile Hotel Garden City Cairo was a wonderful hotel as well. Gesa was great to work with! She was so nice and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. Especially during for the first part of my trip which had nothing to do with my tours with Kensington Tours. She planned everything out perfectly on my trip.

  • Donna M — June 02, 2019 — Africa

    The Kensington Kenya and Tanzania African Safari itinerary and experience exceeded all expectations. From the moment we were met at the airport, we were completely cared for. Our Destination Expert, Erin Cotton, even checked in on us during the trip. Our guides were excellent; Albert and Steve were exceptionally knowledgeable, organized and considerate. The accommodations were all fantastic with friendly staff, comfortable rooms for the family, and great food. Although the balloon trip over the Mara River was a highlight, each game drive was a memorable adventure as or guides toured Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and the Masai Mara. We got to spend some time in the local villages and dine with some of the other tourists in the middle of the bush and on a spectacular cliff overlooking the plains of Kenya and Tanzania. Most of all, every morning we looked forward to spending time with our guides searching for animals and learning more about the whole ecosystem.

    Everything was absolutely wonderful - from the planning to the execution. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely work with Kensington on my next trip! (I'm headed to Hong Kong this December and think I should probably do some exploring while I'm there!)

    Our trip was amazing! The accommodations were lovely. Our safari guide made the experience memorable! Our only job was to relax and enjoy. The guide for our day in Sawato and to visit the Apartheid museum was extremely knowledgeable. This is our second trip with Kensington Tours. We will definitely use again.

    We left everything to our tour rep, Louise Baer. She did a fantastic job. We had no expectations at all but were absolutely overwhelmed with our accommodations. We were treated so well by everyone. It was an unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Our drivers were fantastic. I felt so safe. Brilliant holiday. Thank you, Kensington!
