This shore excursion is a great way to make the most of your time by visiting two of the most ancient cities of Andalusia in one day: Jerez, the world capital of Sherry and Cadiz, the oldest founded city in Western Europe.

Meet our local guide close to Cadiz Port and embark your A/C mini coach for a picturesque 30 mn journey to Jerez de la Frontera.

Jerez architectural style is superb, and while exploring the historical centre you will marvel at the Plaza del Cabildo, San Miguel church and the Cathedral of Jerez a peculiar mix of Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical style.

Your exciting visit will continue with a visit to the Alcazar a 12th century Moorish fortress formally used as a residence and fortress by the Almohad rulers of Southern Spain. Explore the Octogonal tower, the Arab baths, the Mosque and the gardens with your knowledgeable guide.

Enjoy some free time for shopping or visiting one of the 36 wine cellars to learn about the production of sherry and sample the local production.

Get back on-board and head back towards Cadiz. As you enter the 3000 years old city, you will go through the city walls of Puerta de Tierra before heading to La Caleta beach, a former Phoenician port flanked by Santa Catalina and San Sebastian castles. See the beautiful French Gardens of Parque Genoves and admire the impressive façade of the Falla Theatre, home of the biggest carnival contest in Spain.   

Wave good bye to your driver and start your walking tour in Plaza España, a monument commemorating the Spanish constitution. The narrow streets of Cadiz as well as its charming balconies will enchant you as you explore Plaza Mina and Plaza San Francisco before stopping at the imposing Cathedral of Cadiz which construction took 116 years. Your shore excursion will end with a tour of the Roman Theatre, ranked the second oldest in the world.
