Embark on this gripping tour through the dramatic landscapes of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco.

Keeping the plot line interesting, more action, adventure, and thrilling scenery await from the perpetual oasis of Marrakesh to the former sanctuary of Granada’s opulent Alhambra complex.

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

LUIS NOGUEIRA

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

To travel and see the real world was one of my main goals while growing up, so when I got the chance to become a Tour Director, I felt the luckiest person in the world. It is the most rewarding experience ever. Every single day is a chance to go somewhere new and learn about it. Every time a guest is amazed by the beauty of a monument, landscape or venue, it's like I'm seeing it again for the first time. Can't get any better! I especially enjoy touring Spain, Portugal and Morocco... the breath-taking landscapes and monuments, the history, the contrasts in traditions and gastronomy, the amazing weather throughout the year and the people... simply fascinates me.
