Tips and tricks

  • The perfect time for a beach holiday is the period from late August to early September when the water is completely warmed up and the weather is not too hot.
  • Public beaches are free. You will only have to pay for renting beach chairs and umbrellas.
  • It can cost much to stay in touch with your family and friends: prices for a 2 Gb package usually start with 15 euros. It would be better to buy a local SIM card (Vodafone, Movistar, or Orange). Other mobile operators use the infrastructure of the above mentioned ones, that is why the prices for their services will be much higher.
  • Choose cafés and restaurants located outside the tourist areas: enjoy live music, delicious wine, and mouth-watering tapas.
  • Be sure to try the traditional Spanish sweetturron. It is a tasty nougat made of honey, nuts, egg white, and sugar.
  • For visiting cathedrals and temples, wear closed clothes, otherwise you will not be allowed to enter the shrines.
  • You may easily make purchases using your credit card, and yet it is recommended to bring some cash to buy goods at local markets.

Reviews

Ian
The driver helped to install our own child seat in the car. On his advice, we stopped for lunch at La Barra de César Anca. Be sure to try ravioli and gazpacho here 🤌🏻
Gabriella
The driver knows exactly how to introduce the travelers to the city! The sightseeing ride was not a tedious excursion with historical events and dates that we wouldn't remember anyway, but rather a true adventure with a lively story about city’s real life.
Layla
We really liked it! We had a clean, spacious car with drinking water and air conditioning. The driver was smart and polite. Well knew the city, its history and the features of modern life. In addition to the main waypoints, we stopped three times to buy ice cream, souvenirs or just take a picture with a blooming peach tree. My husband and I were satisfied with the tour. We highly recommend it!
