On this vacation, there is ample time for in-depth sightseeing, and you’ll visit many of the area’s historic sites, including the Casa de Pilatos in Seville, with its splendid collection of Roman sculptures, and the Alhambra Complex in Granada.

If you’re interested in religious sights, this tour is not to be missed. Visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Fátima, where pilgrims from all over the world congregate; Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, built to thank the Virgin Mary for Portugal’s success in its voyages around the world; the 13th-century cathedral and the Church of Santo Tomé in Toledo, which has one of El Greco’s most famous paintings; and more. There’s a full day at leisure at the Costa del Sol, so you can enjoy the sandy beaches, browse the shops, or join an optional excursion to the Rock of Gibraltar. Ferry crossings over the Strait of Gibraltar to and from Morocco afford spectacular views. An overnight in Tangier gives you a nice taste of Morocco. Here, Globus has arranged special experiences to help Morocco come to life. You’ll enjoy a panoramic drive to Cap Spartel, where you’ll admire the splendid views and drink a glass of hot mint tea Bedouin-style, along with local biscuits. You’ll also enjoy Moroccan entertainment during dinner at your hotel. Plus a visit to the colorful Grand Socco square, a busy market with many stalls.

Tour Director

ZUMURYOT, HASSAN Escorting tours for more than 19 years

I love to share my knowledge and passion for Spain. The best it has to offer, with its truly amazing history and culture. Getting to know its passionate people who love their country and love life. Its contrasts and diversity never fail to surprise and delight our clients. Tour directing has enabled me to experience and discover amazing places but the most satisfying aspect is getting to know the people I have met along the years. I never stop learning and being surprised by our tour members, many of whom are an inspiration to me and their fellow travelers. So many new bonds are created amongst people from all over the world and all walks of life. It's so rewarding to see our clients having such great experiences that they will cherish forever as I guide and accompany them every step of the way through this wonderful country.
