Black Friday

It rather sounds as a sad day, like something sad happened. Well it is a sad day for my purse I guess. Because black Friday is actually about a lot of discounts and sale in almost all the shops.

But why? Why the day after Thanksgiving? Well because of the fact to get people to the shops and to spend money. And this has all to do with Christmas. A month before already. So discounts and sales all over the place to get your Christmas presents ready!

Actually this all first started in America, since they were the first to celebrate Thanksgiving and black Friday. However now a lot more countries celebrate like America. So do we in Spain, and Andalucia Tours an...

Thanksgiving in Seville, Spain. Do the Spaniards celebrate it as the Americans? Well, the modern people do actually. But as for the classic people, the older people do not actually. Thanksgiving is tradition in America, this tradition actually flew over to Spain and more European countries but moreover through movies and the internet.

However to get a complete...

Food is everywhere in Seville, from tapas to burgers and pizza’s to meats. But where can you find local foods? Local products? Are there any better places than the local supermarkets where you can shop fresh local products?

….. Yes!! There are, actually a lot. Because Seville is still so traditional, you will find a lot of mercado’s as we call them in Spain. This simply means markets. Indoor markets. Those are the best. There are 2 very good ones actually. One in the city,...

At the beautiful square, Plaza Virgen de los Reyes, there is a lot to see. The one thing that stands out and screams for your attention is the enormous cathedral with its high Giralda tower. Next to that you have the M. Gago street which is very famous for...

Seville is a very large city, one of the largest in Spain to be exact. So were there a lot of people and tourists here, the city also attracts a lot of students. Students from everywhere in Spain and Seville itself. But also a large amount of international students from everywhere from the globe, usually here with Erasmus. And of course as a student you want to party in a club, have a great night in one of the bars in the centre or you just want to relax somewhere in the city. But where? Where do the students go? Where are the big p...

In Seville we have a lot of national and local holidays. Many of them are well known and therefore also familiar with the tourists that come to Andalucía. Others are a little less familiar than the famous ones but they still have the importance, a lot of (important) history, for Seville of the region of Andalucía, and big parties in the centre of Seville. A perfect example of a holiday like that is Columbus Day that is celebrated very largely in Spain and Sevill...

"Do you speak English?" This is the first thing you ask when you here in Seville. At least it was the first thing I asked a lot of people here in Seville because my Spanish was not very good yet. Unfortunately a very very few people did speak English. This is actually very weird for me as a North-European. Because I am used to everybody around me speaking English. But still, for Spain as an European country and for Seville as the city of the world, people should be speaking English here. However, the...

What are the differences between Spain and Germany? Well actually there are a lot of (cultural) differences, but if we had to describe all the differences; you wouldn’t finish this text within a couple of minutes. We want you to think about the first difference that pops up to your head. Take your time. For me it is the food, but for you that could be something else. Why did I come up with the food?

Food is a very important thing in life. You have to feed yourself to stay alive. This is a primary need. Wherever you  go, you need to eat.  As for Spain and the Spanish people f...

The Dutch staff of Andalucía Tours and Discovery

As many of you may know, Andalucía Tours and Discovery is a very international company. We are originally founded by a Spaniard but if you visit our shop you will soon notice that there is almost nothing Spanish to be seen or hear. The office language is mainly English and Dutch because most of the employees and interns are from Holland. For us that is a good thing because we have a lot of clients from Holland or Belgium and they like to speak their own language when they are on a hol...
