Guided tour of Malaga, Seville, Granada or Cordoba
A guided tour on foot or by coach is the perfect introduction to these cities, giving you the opportunity to get your bearings around the city and to see all the major sights and landmarks. Each of these cities has so much to see, and out partners in resort are vastly experienced in delivering walks taking in the highlights. If required they can also act as site guides and give your students a tour of a specific historic site such as Malaga's Alcazaba or Granada's Alhambra Palace UNESCO Site.
If you want to work on your students’ language skills we can request the tour to be delivered in Spanish.
A highly enjoyable activity getting to grips with this traditional dance. It is a great way for your students to throw away their inhibitions and improve their language skills whilst having fun. This can be done in each of the city locations as well as taking in a show with or without a meal.
