Plan to arrive in Seville a few days early to enjoy this beautiful city, and capital of Andalucia. Be sure to visit the Giralda, a famous bell tower built by the Moors and later restored. Another must see is Seville’s enormous cathedral, where Christopher Columbus is buried. The cathedral is considered by some standards to be the largest in Europe! We’ll fit bicycles this afternoon and recommend a short ride. This evening after introductions and a glass of sherry (or juice), we’ll stroll downtown and celebrate the beginning of our cycling journey by enjoying some signature dishes of the region.

Pre-trip planning checklist



  • These have been my favorite vacations ever! [ My favorite part was ]the biking to one interesting town after another. Regional food was great. Local guides for tours were great.

  • Loreto, Maria Elena and Claudio were just wonderful leaders! They were so competent, helpful and knowledgeable. Really, they are what made the trip so enjoyable. It was hard to pick just one [ favorite part]. There were many. I loved riding through the Sierra Nevada on the last day with fall color and beautiful scenery. I think the Mezquita was the most unique cultural sight. I enjoyed all aspects of this tour. It was another wonderfully planned and executed Experience Plus! tour.
