This was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend it to everyone visiting Spain. I would not have been able to see all these beautiful Andalusian sights in 4 days on my own. The tour was well-planned and well-paced, and our tour guide Grace did a great job getting all 37 of us from one sight to another. The bus was very comfortable and well maintained.
I chose the superior hotel option but wasn't too impressed with the rooms - in fact, I could not sleep at all at Granada because the room was freezing. On a more positive note, the superior hotels are centrally located, especially the one in Granada, so that made it easy to explore the city on foot.
We chose to do all the optional tours but the only one that was worth our time was the flamenco show in Seville. Please skip the river cruise in Seville and the Arab town walking tour and gypsy show in Granada - you're better off exploring on your own. The river cruise in Seville lasted an hour, but we spent it wishing that we were at Alcazar or the cathedral instead because they close around 5/6 PM and you don't get a lot of time to look around.
A helpful tip: the pick-up point is currently in the Plaza de Oriente bus parking in front of the Royal Palace. The voucher says we need to go to level -2, however the elevators only go to -1. You need to take the elevator to level -1 then walk to -2. It took me a while to figure that out and I was worried about missing the tour.

The tour was amazing and exceeded all our expectations. We saw much more of Spain than we would have if we had been travelling by ourselves with the little time we had available. It was very well organized and kept us on a tight schedule. Grace, tour guide, was excellent, as was our cautious, highly-skilled driver, Antonio. We enjoyed the optional flamenco show, but felt our time on the river cruise would have been better spent walking around Seville. The gypsy evening option was an enjoyable adventure, although the many other groups on the walking tour made it a little difficult at times to follow and hear our guide. The tour group, 52 of us, were multinational and of varied ages, but fun, compatible and got along well together. A very positive first experience of group travel.
