Seductive Sumptuous Spain

The perfect way to experience the highlights of Spain over the course of a leisurely-paced two weeks. Start out in bustling Barcelona, Gaudi's playground. Foodie mecca San Sebastian is the next course. The midpoint of your trip is Spain's centrally-located capital Madrid, where you'll find out all about its royal background. More impressive regality ensues in Seville, where a flamenco performance is a must. Our last stop is Malaga, an under-rated coastal city that's also ideal as a base to visit one of Spain's signature sights, the Alhambra in Granada.

In addition to the tours included we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea of what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

One of our team members in the region will be available to you leading up to and during your trip to answer any questions and arrange additional local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with its information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice. Upon your arrival, we will provide you with a local cell phone that you can use to reach your local JayWay contact throughout your trip. In all of our destinations, we offer a variety of memorable 3-5 star accommodation options, including boutique hotels, charming B&Bs, and spacious apartments. With our first-hand experience, we can ensure they are all clean, comfortable, and centrally located, with local ambience.

San Sebastián is rightfully known as one of the most beautiful cities in northern Spain. It flourished in the early 20th century as a holiday resort for aristocrats and to this day attracts visitors to its famed beaches. San Sebastian is also a haven for foodies. A landmark for gastronomy, San Sebastian has more Michelin Star restaurants per capita than anywhere else in Europe! But it’s not all about white table cloths and silver service. The bars in the quaint Old Town have the most delicious pintxos – the local take on tapas – which you must try while in San Sebastian. San Sebastian’s best-kept secret might be its cider houses. The cavernous sidrerias are where the locals can be found of an evening.

The capital, as well as the geographical and cultural center of Spain, Madrid has long enthralled visitors. Since Prince Phillip II made Madrid the capital in the mid 16th century the city has become home to the largest functioning royal palace in Europe, as well as many museums, cafes, parks, universities, and cultural attractions. Although tourism in the city is growing, Spain's many other attractions mean the city is able to maintain its authenticity and you'll find local character and charm in each of its different neighborhoods. Madrid is perfectly located as a base for day trips to UNESCO-listed towns in central Spain and well connected for traveling onward to any corner of the country for further exploration.

Toledo, situated only an hour away from the metropolis of Madrid by train, is referred to as the 'City of the Three Cultures' due to the centuries-old Arab, Jewish and Christian influence since its foundation. The city used to be the capital of the Visigoths in the medieval ages, the main venue of the court of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, and as such boasts of breathtaking and diversified architecture. Awarded with UNESCO World Heritage protection in 1986, Toledo undoubtedly should be your first-day trip destination after having discovered the major points of interest in Madrid.

Although it may not be the most famous city in Spain, Seville is considered by many to be the most beautiful. You get a sense of its unique charms as you meander through winding streets surrounded by characteristic white and pipeclay yellow walls of the painted buildings. Due to the hustle and bustle of port activity, 16th century Seville was the richest city in Spain. Goods of all splendor brought from the New World arrived at the feet of awestruck locals. Venture further into the city to marvel at the largest Gothic Temple in the world, Seville Cathedral, or try to imagine the sense of pride and awe felt by locals for hundreds of years as they gazed up at The Giralda Tower. This minaret was built in the Almohad period and was, for centuries, the tallest building in Spain and constructed as part of a Grand Mosque.

Often overlooked as just an airport city, Malaga is eminently worthy of inclusion in a tour of Spain that includes Andalucia. The holidaymakers who head for the seaside resort towns are missing out on something special. Malaga is one of the oldest cities in Europe and was founded by the Phoenicians in 770 BC. The Alcazaba of Malaga is a must for anyone visiting this historic city. It could be considered as a prototype of the Alhambra in Granada. The historic port has a vast array of traditional and contemporary cuisines and is a short walk from the city center. Malaga has a lively tapas scene too. Known as the birth town of Pablo Picasso, his home was historically preserved as a museum and is easily accessible in the city center of Malaga.
