As owners of Sol y Sombra tours, we take pride in being your personal tour guides during your tour in Spain.
Tours in Spain with Passion
Simply put, we love Spain. If you are looking for a tour that combines memorable highlights, relaxation, exciting walks in National parks, culture, great food and wine then our tours are a perfect fit for you.
Whether it is where to find that unforgettable meal, the best tapas bar, or great walks, you'll be in safe hands as our priority is making your tour the most exciting and memorable Spanish travel experience.
As your guides we have an extensive knowledge of the language, having lived in Spain and travelled extensively in Europe, nothing will get 'lost in translation', so to speak. As professional painters and tutors with works in private collections around the world, both Grant and Alex enjoy sharing their extensive practical knowledge of painting and Art History.
Grant enthuses those who meet him with his passionate, entertaining and funny anecdotes and insatiable love of Spanish cuisine, especially fresh seafood. His knowledge of the local culture, language and history will take you not only on a tour but on a journey through time to appreciate not just the history but the warmth and passion of Spanish people. Grant Kenny studied painting in Madrid at the Circulo de Bellas Artes, has painted in the Museo del Prado and the National Gallery in London.
Alexandra’s passion for cooking, choosing organic food where possible means we are always finding new and wonderful tapas bars. One of her favourite Spanish dishes is ‘Pimentos del Padron’ ( Salted green peppers cooked in a little olive oil, sometimes you get a hot one, which is not too hot, but a fabulous surprise! ) Sharing local delicacies and authentic Andalucían cuisine during our tours, ensures that each day always ends with great food, wine and company.
