This was a very special trip with 15 of my closest friends and family which my wife organised for my 60th birthday. Every aspect of the trip was magical; the beautiful house we rented in Jerez, the wonderful sherries we tasted, delicious food and magical settings. However the topping on the cake was Iván - Manager and Spain Trip Planner at Genuine Andalusia. Ivan was our tour guide whose knowledge and obvious love of the area was only surpassed by his generosity of spirit. From helping one of my friends to retrieve his lost phone to staying on late to make sure we found our perfect restaurant he went above and beyond what was expected. Even down to organising a very special trip to the private house of Domingo and his family, a wine grower who farms 5 hectares just outside Jerez - a very special trip indeed. Thank you Ivan for making our holiday so enjoyable. Andrea & Rolland

It is dicey traveling during Covid, there are so many things to consider you wonder if it is worth the effort. Will it be safe? Will museums, restaurants, cathedrals be open? Will Locals be glad to have tourists in their midst? With all these additional concerns swirling in the background, we still decided to go to Seville. We wanted to start with an overview of the town and contacted Iván at Genuine Andalusia to help us kick-off our stay. We could not have made a better decision. We asked to see Seville from a Local’s perspective and he created the perfect tour. We walked through the various barrios, chatted beside the monuments and cathedrals, saw amazing ceramics and popped into an artist’s studio. Ivan introduced us to Seville’s history, culture and artistic traditions, both their roots and legacies. Our tour ended with a stop at a local bar for sherry and Andalusian wine. It was the most delightful time….we left with our heads full and our hearts overwhelmed. Ivan made us remember all the things we love about traveling…..again. What a gift.

I booked several tours with Genuine Andalusia, two in Seville, two in Granada, and one in Cordoba. I was very pleased with the guides. They were very friendly and had vast knowledge of the history and the arts of Andalusia. The guides were up beat. Our exchanges were so wonderful that we usually spent more time together than what the tour had planed. The guides were also very good at recommending restaurants and other activities. Thanks to them, I had an amazing time in Andalusia.

My wife and I organised our 25th wedding anniversary trip to be in Spain. We had specific requests and Ivan matched our request with perfect experiences for us. We stayed at Alacantra Spanish horse ranch with our wonderful hosts Alphonzo and Rocia. This immersion into their home and experiencing the warm hospitality and wonderful horses will live with us forever. We felt very privileged and special there. Ivan met us after a couple of days and took us through Jerez for a tour and spanish horse show. Ivan was a fantastic tour guide and we learnt so much. Ivan is warm and very easy to talk to. he was generous and looked after our every need. I fully recommend Genuine Andalusia (Ivan's company) if you want to be wowed. We now have very special memories, thank you Ivan

My wife and I spent the day with Ivan touring Jerez and exploring Sherry. From the moment he picked us up (with a driver, which really helped Ivan focus on the tour), Ivan was engaging and informative. Ivan is a true Sherry expert, and he has connections in Jerez that gave us the depth of experience we were looking for. But even more, Ivan’s warmth, enthusiasm, and wit made our experience unforgettable.

Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to review the tour and for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure (and an honor) for me to offer a sherry tour to a WSET level 4 diploma student! What a highlight in my career as a Sherry Educator! Thank you also for your kindness, for your generosity and for being so appreciative of our local wines. Warmest regards from the Sherry capital.
