When visiting Granada we´ve suggested that our guests might wish to cross cross the hanging bridges of Los Cahorros Monichel, travel to Toledo and admire in awe El Grecos masterpiece "The Disrobing of Christ" in Toledo.
You will never taste better Pata Negra, expertly sliced from the bone, than in the kitchen of our favorite Spanish mother living in Fuentes de Andalucia or truly discover the secrets of the Alhambra unless being guided by Santi, our favorite guide in Granada and throughout all of Spain.

Imaging finding yourself on a vintage small boat, sailing lazily along the Douro River and the worlds first Demarcated Wine Region of the Douro River Valley, between the towering mountainsides of terraced vineyards with a glass of Vintage Port Wine in hand then returning to the luxurious surroundings of your private villa nestled among the vineyards.
Portugal has a dynamic culture where traditions are interwoven into the fabric of the country that everyone who visits fall in love with. It´s called "saudades" in Portuguese; we guarantee you will learn what this word means once you´ve returned home from Portugal.
We arrived back from a wonderful 5 night vacation in Lisbon and were delighted. The owner was fortunately in Lisbon during our trip; an American who has lived in Lisbon for +15 years. By ourselves we probably would only have seen 10% of what we saw. We were impressed in how versed Greg is in history, politics, architecture, food, religion and culture.
His knowledge of the Portuguese language, comradeship with "locals"--professionally and socially--was most impressive and really made a difference to our experience. Now here is the best part: the responsiveness to our individual requests and modifications of fixed agenda made it a special personal experience.
