The Al Andalus is one of the most spacious, comfortable, and luxurious tourist trains. Boasting Belle Epoque elegance, its four lounge cars are exquisite railway classics; built between 1928 and 1930. Tours and entry tickets for itinerary items are included and on board there’s fantastic detail with regards to décor, technology, and excellent service.
We are delighted to be able to offer a fabulous itinerary aboard the Tren Al Andalus discovering the south of Spain. The Andalusian Route is a 7 day (6 night) itinerary starting in Seville and ending in Malaga, and departing on select Sundays during April, May, June, September, October and November. The tour starts on a Sunday morning in Seville and we have included a nights stay at Hotel Ingalterra to ensure arrival in time for embarkation. As a guide, staying one night at Hotel Inglaterra, followed by 6 nights on the Al Andalus, travelling by air from London and return, costs from £3,880 per person in October, based on two adults sharing a twin cabin on the train.
You can choose between carefully restored, original-style Grand Class rooms, or at a supplement, Deluxe suites, with the latter housed in carriages built in France for use by the British Monarchy when travelling from Calais to the French Riviera. Each compartment is airconditioned, features private bathroom, mini bar and safe, and, during the day, beds convert to a comfortable banquette from which you can enjoy views of the wonderful, ever changing landscape as the train journeys along. To ensure a comfortable night’s sleep the train will remain parked at a station at night.
Dining on board in the beautiful splendour of the dining car is an exquisite experience. A varied a la carte and buffet breakfast is served on board each morning, with a menu of delectable regional dishes accompanied by wine, water, soft drinks and coffee for lunch and dinner, served either on board when travelling between destinations, or enjoyed in a first class local restaurant when sightseeing. A farewell gala dinner is served on the last night.
Life on board
You can choose to make the most of your comfortable compartment travelling between destinations, or head for the bar car to share the company of fellow passengers. Each night after dinner there are various live performances, or if you prefer a quiet drink in one of the saloon cars, or go for a stroll in the town where the train has stopped for the night.
