Featured Tour – Andalucia: Sun-drenched Sevilla to Historic Antequera, September 29 – October 4, 2019   

If you’ve dreamed of Spain, you’ve dreamed of Andalucia. This is quintessential Spain. Andalucia is limestone peaks, mountain passes and spectacular views. It is exquisite tapas, rich olive oils, classic Spanish wines and the special Jamon Ibérico. But most of all, Andalucia is the birthplace of Spanish romance, where flamenco and a vibrant history combine to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Picasso called this place his home. You’ll call it amazing. Ernest Hemingway was enchanted with this region of Spain. You, too, will fall under its spell.

There will be Discount Coupons available for this tour.
Light refreshments will be served.
Bring a friend!

Trek Holly Park is located behind Trader Joes at 3020 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.

Dinner ‘OnYour Own’:  Please patronize one of the several fine restaurants in close proximity to Trek Bicycles at Holly Park, and join us at the store.  Earlier start time – the meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 followed by our feature presentation.
