Authentic Andalusia

Take a look into our photobook!

The Program:

This program is intended for all people with a "traveler" spirit, whatever their age,  wanting to discover Andalusia in a different way: not just visiting the sites and crossing off a bucket list, but having authentic and local experiences every day, discovering unique treasures of nature, traveling scenic routes, tasting and learning about the local natural products and gastronomy, visiting the most beautiful cities and charming, traditional villages,meeting extraordinary people and learning their language.

It's about living a unique and unforgettable experience in the southern region of Spain where people understand what ´Art of Living´ means: Andalusia.

------------------------------------------------------------------

A wonderful experience:

You will travel in small groups and will get personalized attention from an expert guide, who knows the region and its culture. The guides are born and raised in Andalusia, they know the interesting local stories and hidden places and they are excited to tell you all about ‘their land’.

During the itinerary you will not only get immersed in local culture, but you will also discover the most beautiful landscapes of Andalusia with spectacular views and its most beautiful cities and villages. The scenic routes we will follow have inspired many ‘Romantic artists’ and you will discover that, if you’ll leave the beaten track, new worlds await you.

All walking routes are easily achievable for any hiker with a normal physical condition. But in any case, our private bus is always available for the more ´lazy´ ones among us. The important thing for us is not the number of kilometers traveled but enjoying the incredible beauty of the places you will visit.

------------------------------------------------------------------

A real Spanish immersion:

To complete the immersion in Andalusian culture, the program includes Spanish lessons on fascinating locations. Your teacher/guide will impart 15 classes of Spanish per week that will incorporate everything you see, discover and experience during the trip.

Furthermore, throughout the entire tour you will practice Spanish during activities and excursions, converse with locals and listen to cultural lectures.

You will be accommodated in charming and authentic places, having all the comfort you need to feel relaxed after a day of activities and excursions.

Imagine to behold the wonderful sunrises from the coastal towns, meet with artisans on the route of the white villages, you can be horse-riding along the beaches of Tarifa, discover Seville by bike, learn how to prepare your own bread, cheese and gazpacho with your own hands, and furthermore, if you like, you can take your Spanish classes in unique and delightful places.

You will immerse in the culture and live the authentic Andalusia like you would have never imagined before!

Spanish:

A language is often referred to as ‘the key to a culture’, and we think this is true: Understanding and speaking  the local  language gives the opportunity  to interact with people and to  get  immersed  in  local  culture.  That is why our program combines a cultural tour with optional Spanish lessons. This unique combination will turn the tour into an experience of total cultural immersion. It’s all about connecting learning to experiences. 

The  teaching  method  we  use  was  specifically developed  for  the  itinerary  in  collaboration  with our partner school certified by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes. The guide that accompanies the group is also a native, professional and experienced Spanish teacher and will be traveling with you 24/7. He will impart 15 classes of Spanish per week, which are specifically adapted to our traveling program. 

The method is specifically developed for A2/B1 level (Elementary/ Intermediate).  However the method is appropriate for a variation of levels, due to the type of exercises and assignment that will be adapted to the various levels. 

For those participants that wish to take the tour but not the Spanish lessons, they will have free time during the class hours, where they can relax, discover the area, enjoy the sun or follow the insiders´ tips of our staff.

What our clients say about us?

“Hola Inge, We are back in town and I would like to compliment you from a cold Rotterdam on the excellent way you organized our visit to Málaga. The programme was a perfect fit and was also just enough for our spoiled club of gentlemen. I would also like to praise the “private chauffeur”. Nothing was too much for him and he was always friendly. Given the well occupied program, but also the various Semana Santa parades, we have decided to cancel the Hammam. No problema. On behalf of us all, thank you very much and good luck with your further activities in sunny Málaga. Saludos y un grande beso.”

“Hi Inge, We had a wonderful time in Malaga. The weather was amazing, of course we were all very much looking forward to it. The hotel was very nice, really good location and the works they were doing in front of the hotel didn’t bother us. The (bath)rooms were a little bit on the old side and could use a make-over, but the bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. The personnel was very helpful and breakfast was very extensive. They even opened breakfast half an hour earlier when we were going to visit Granada on Saturday, so we could have our breakfast before leaving! Málaga is a beautiful city, very easy to get around, you do not need a map. The people are very open and nice. They always try to help you. Lovely terraces, bars, restaurants, but of course you don’t need me to tell you that!…………..”

“Together with Inge from Peach Travels I have compiled a road trip through Andalusia. And what was a special trip it was. Peach Travels knows Andalusia very well and has provided me with some very nice accommodations and contacts. In Ronda, we slept on a finca just outside the city. The view of the mountains and the cute white houses with fireplace were a perfect start to our trip! In the Alpujarras we drove on the crinkly mountain roads until we came to a lovely hotel where the hostess gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms are spacious and breakfast is very extensive. What a nice place in this mountain village. Perfect starting point for lovely walks or a visit to a local market. Finally we arrivated at a nice host family in Málaga. A private entrance, bedroom and bathroom, but with the coziness of having breakfast with our hostess. Very nice to practice Spanish and share travel stories! From here we made a trip to an orange farm. A place where Juanito and his family grow the tastiest oranges and lemons, we could also try them. Delicious fresh vitamins. 😉 Peach thanks for the great service and fine tips, it was a great trip.”
