Hiking the Caminito del Rey

The other day I had the honour and the pleasure of hiking the Caminito del Rey in Málaga Province. The Caminito del Rey feels like a blend between a hike and an aerial adventure. Visitors trek through beautiful scenery as well as edging along wooden walkways attached to a sheer cliff face located many hundred feet […]

A Tailormade itinerary in Seville

a tailormade itinerary that revolved around history, architecture, art (old and new), gastronomy and most importantly, getting under the skin of Andalucia and meeting some of the locals. We recently had the pleasure of sharing our home city of Seville with a delightful group from England! This tailormade itinerary was 9 months in the making. Gillie and Alison […]
Hi Sam and Fran, We returned home safely. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you very much for coordinating our trip in an outstanding manner. We really appreciate, how you and your team, did such a wonderful job at every step of the way. There were too many highlights to single out a particular one. Sam, thank you very much, from all of us, for meeting us at Triana and your gifts. That was extremely unprecedented and so thoughtful. Fran, truly happy with your help in addressing any of our concerns promptly and your courteous approach. Missed your call at Casa 1800 because we were out partying. Thank you. Art/Tapas trip and drive thru "white villages" with two James and Cordoba visit with Maria will remain memorable. Somehow you guys transcended the visitor-tour operator relationship with your "think out of the box" approach. We will explore how to work with you in the future - Portugal-Morocco?!! Best D

Sam is a quick study! His travel company was recommended by friends who loved his itinerary, but our lifestyle and interests were entirely different than our friends - but Sam listened carefully and nailed it perfectly. We couldn't have been happier with the variety and insider touches that he provided.

Hi, Sam - We are back home now from a truly wonderful trip to Spain with Tailormade Andalucia. We loved our time in Spain and thank you for the very efficient and personal attention you gave us at every step of the way. From our first contact, you listened carefully to our likes and dislikes and put together a memorable itinerary. Along with outstanding lodging choices, your selection of guides was consistently excellent, as they brought it all alive for us. Our private drivers were polite and always on-time, and provided very comfortable transport.

Hi Sam,

What can I say? Not having been to Spain before I had visions of a quite different place - flat, hot, full of high rise hotels and lots of tourists. Well, the last part was true - far more Americans than I imagined. And it was hot which helped the lifestyle make more sense. But Andalucía was wonderful - endlessly interesting and much of it very beautiful. We want to come back! With better Spanish next time!    

I will complete the survey but at the end of the week as I will be up to my ears in work. We really enjoyed our guides - all different, all knowledgeable, all very patient, all lots of fun. I shouldn't say so but we had a particularly good tour with Jaime in Seville as he knew so much about all the things we wanted to find out about. We're only sorry that we had such a short time with all our guides as the time went by incredibly quickly and it was hard to believe we'd been together for two or three hours.

“We used to think that ‘Guided holidays’ were for people who needed looking after. Not any more! The five days we spent with Sam were brilliant. He definitely gets five stars for organisation, content, knowledge and charisma! You see and learn so much more when a visit is planned andorganised for you, involving people with specialist and local knowledge to show you around. We can’t wait for the next one!"

I can thoroughly recommend Sam Lister and Tailormade Andalucia. From my first contact with Sam to discuss a possible visit to Seville, I was impressed with his enthusiasm, his quick understanding of the type of holiday I was looking for and his exciting ideas for the trip. On arrival in Seville, it soon became apparent that Sam was an excellent tour operator and guide. As well as seeing the traditional sites of Seville and Jerez, we were able to go ‘behind closed doors’ and meet artists, art restorers, flamenco dancers and musicians and learn about their work and see their beautiful homes. We were also able to gain an insight into Spanish life, its history and customs by spending a lot of time talking with Sam, either over a meal, or travelling to Jerez or walking through the streets of the Triana district. He introduced us, and indeed converted us, to Spanish white wine and sherry and eating in excellent restaurants, chosen by Sam, all added to the wonderful holiday. We all hope to return to Spain and experience another Tailormade Andalucia holiday.

Want to thank you, again, for your help and work in setting up our tours in the Andalucia region.  They were all fantastic and the group enjoyed all the tour guides.  We still are talking about our tapas and wine tour that you took us on.  Again, many thanks and I would have no problem and would enjoy the opportunity to recommend you and your company to others touring the Andalucia area of Spain.  Peace and blessings.

Tailormade Andalucia is a superb custom touring partner for Andalucia.

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Sam Lister for two small-group guided tours in this magical region of Spain and I can honestly say that Sam consistently exceeded my expectations, which are high!  Andalucia is a region that is packed with relatively easy to access treasures, but also one that is packed with remarkable small restaurants, small-scale winemakers, food artisans, cultural artisans, off-the-radar shopping gems, historic sites and so much more that an ‘insider’ can find and share.

From the initial phone call with Sam to the final farewell, Tailormade provided my students and I a professional and personalized experience as we explored Andalucía. My fear of tour groups was put to rest as we were introduced to the authentic culture of southern Spain by visiting amazing locations both on and off the beaten path. The students, the adult chaperones, and I, were genuinely engaged in every activity and location that Tailormade included in our customized itinerary. Sam and the other incredible guides were so personable, knowledgeable, and attentive, that everyone in our group viewed them as our new, foreign friends rather than simply our guides.

Thank you so much Sam for helping Spain come alive for us. We have enjoyed our 3 weeks here and it has lived up to all expectations and more. You have done a fantastic job. Good luck for the future.

One can only say, how thrilled we were with our week in Spain, thanks to Sam Lister. Before leaving New Zealand, every “I” was dotted and “T” crossed. In organising our trip to the other side of the world, quick answers were a must.

The options regarding the tour planning, the choice of hotels to suit our budget from Barcelona to San Sebastion – absolutely faultless.

Words are inadequate to express all of the delights that you have shared with us over the past 10 days. This was a wonderful experience and will be with us always!

First thanks for organising another great holiday (once again better than expected) We had a wonderful time.  Sam Lister did a great job and kept in touch with me all the way through which was very reassuring.

He also met up with us on our last day in Seville.  What a really nice young guy he is.  Our drivers and guides were really good particularly BB ........ and what a laugh he was we had some very hilarious conversations...

We had such an amazing European trip it is hard to think of just one or two things to rate above all else.  Spain was our favourite destination by a long margin. The guides in each city and town were exceptional and brought alive the traditions of Spanish life.

Etruscan Pleasures (Italia) Ltd and Sam from Tailormade Andalucia in Seville, designed our itinerary perfectly to our needs and our dreams came true.  The itinerary was relaxing, informative and fun.  We would highly recommend travellers to use their exceptional services they have accumulated after many years of experience as travel consultants.
