What’s a great way for you and your grandchild to experience Spain? Well that would be by the “great river,” of course! On an exciting learning adventure, sail down the Guadalquivir — or “great river” in Arabic — to explore Andalusia, the colorful Spanish region known for its fun Flamenco dancers, fearsome bulls and red-walled fortresses high in the hills. From feeling like royalty at magnificent castles to learning how to whip up tasty tapas, discover that Spain is anything but plain as you explore this amazing country together.
