      Nature in abundance
      This was an amazing excursion to get up close to the natural beauty of this area. I can’t recommend this highly enough to those who love to walk in nature, to learn about plants and animals and to hear about the history of the area and current stewardship of the land. Carlos has great spoken and written English and is an experienced environmental scientist as well as a local. Highlights were the wild flowers which were in full bloom, a wild swim in amongst limestone boulders and lush ferns and lunch at the homestead of local cook and small farmer Maria Luisa. She was so hospitable that it was hard to walk afterwards. The walks can be varied according to fitness levels and so on. Unforgettable memories from this excursion.

      Incredible Carlos!
      Carlos is the most considerate, knowledgeable, passionate and charismatic tour guide! He took my colleagues and I around some of the most beautiful places in Cadíz and his knowledge, passion and enthusiasm was unmatched. He was always willing to answer questions, help and provide us with an unforgettable experience. We were able to experience a lot of what the area had to offer including beautiful hikes, sherry, incredible food, local history and immersive cultural experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend such and amazing guide and person to enhance your trip to Spain ☀️

      Phenomenal Spanish Experience
      Can definitely recommend booking a tour with Carlos! We had a fabulous time exploring Cadiz and Carlos was very knowledgeable on the history, culture and nature of the area. He was very patient with our constant questions too. All of the food and drink we were able to try was amazing and overall a truly beautiful and authentic experience. During the week, we went on a variety of trips and activities including hiking, sherry tasting and visiting an organic olive mill. We got to meet some of the most amazing people and learn so much about the area. It was a stunning, unforgettable and wonderful experience and I can't recommend it enough!

      Unforgettable Spanish Experience
      During a trip with my colleagues Carlos made us a tour of hikes, restaurants and some history around the Cadiz province. If you love to eat then the food tours are amazing! Carlos took us on culinary experiences and taught us about the history of the authentic Spanish cuisine we got to taste. The quality of food was incredible. The walks around the national park were beautiful and gave us many chances to appreciate some amazing wildlife as well. His knowledge of the culture and history of made it a truly unforgettable trip, would definitely recommend a tour to anyone visiting the area.

      Exploring natural parks
      Carlos took us on three walks in the natural parks near Vejer de la Frontera. He also organised a Bodega visit for us. We had a great time. He pointed out so much of interest on our walks and the views were amazing. We walked on the coast with stunning views across to Morocco and also of Cape Trafalgar. We also visited a park inland with some fine trees and shrubs. Carlos knows his ecology very well and he arranged a lovely open air lunch for us. All in all highly recommended

      Incredible day!
      Our group of 19 agreed that our sherry tasting experience was a highlight of our trip. Carlos is knowledgeable and passionate and shared so much information with us! Not only did we learn a lot, but we had a great time. We were staying in a large house and Carlos took care to set up our dining room for the tasting. He brought in the most delicious food pairings to go with each different sherry. It was an amazing afternoon and without a doubt we will be back again for another sherry tasting experience. (I am sharing some photos taken by Giles from WeddingsbyGiles.com to share how awesome the day was)

Well educated guide with extensive knowledge of Spanish history, better than European English skills, good communication skills. Well selected bodegas with good bodega guides. Thank you for an entertaining day trip.

      Fantastic hike through the beautiful Estrecho natural park
      If you love both nature and hiking, this route - and also Carlos is a must. Our tour guide Carlos organised a perfect route for us and led us to exceptional viewpoints. Thanks to his knowledge, we learned a lot about El Estrecho Natural Park, which is amazing! Carlos is absolutely professional, super friendly and we already know that we will hire him again next year as there is so much to see. Thank you Carlos for the great day we spent with you!!!!

      Magical!
      The best description of my experience with Explore la Tierra is the same phrase I repeated over and over again during my tour - "I have no words"! I wanted to learn about organic olive and wine production in Cadiz, and Carlos arranged an ideal itinerary to do that, plus so much more including a walking tour of gorgeous Vejer. Carlos was warm, extremely knowledgeable about everything from wine to the region's history, and really went above and beyond to make sure I not only got the experience that I was looking for, but way, way more - I learned so much, had a blast, and came away with much, much more than I expected - - it was truly a magical day. Do not miss an opportunity to enrich your experience and appreciation of Cadiz province with Carlos and Explore La Tierra!

      Excellent tourguide!
      We had a wonderful day with Carlos. He is a great tour guide with endless knowledge about nature but also other things such as the history of the landscape, olive oil, wines and sherry. He is super friendly, adjusts his tour to your needs and wants and tells the information in such a way that it stays interesting. We learned a lot and had the most beautiful hike. A day to never forget!

      Go with Carlos and you will have a great day!
      We had a lovely time together with our guide Carlos. He is a very friendly and humorous young man with professional knowledge about the local flora and fauna, he also has a excellent knowledge about the local Andalusien history dated back to Christ and beyond that. He always takes his time with him explanations and he gives you a comfortable feeling being with him. By the way our trip included a hiking trip to the Alcornocales National Park and visiting the ancient Roman Site Baelo Claudia and the white village of Medina Sidonia

      Fantastic guided tours in the Cadiz region
      We did two tours with Carlos, the Sherry and Tapas tour in Cadiz and a guided hike in el Estrecho natural park. Both were fantastic. Carlos is a great guide, he has a huge amount of knowledge about both food and wine and the local flora and fauna. he is also has a very relaxed and friendly attitude that put us instantly at ease. On the Sherry tour we tasted six different Sherry’s with accompanying food pairing while taking in a number of the main sights of Cadiz. Carlos explained the history of the wine and the process used to create it. On the guided hike Carlos took us to a remote area along the coast with fantastic views out to Tarifa and across to Afric I would recommend him to anyone who came to the area and definitely use him again next time we are in the area

      Fantastic Tour
      We had a fantastic day with Carlos that combined a beautiful coastal walk with an excellent wine tasting. Carlos is a terrific guide who not only finds great activities but combines them with knowledgeable and entertaining narratives. The walk was in an area that we would have never found ourselves and was a perfect combination of stunning coastal views over to Africa and inland views of the countryside and mountains. Having completed the walk we then went to a small vineyard to taste their wine and olive oil which was a delightful way to complete our trip.

    My sister, auntie, mom and I booked a private tapas and sherry tasting walking tour with Carlos this past month and had the best time! Carlos was extremely knowledgeable about the history, nature and culinary scene in and around Vejer de la Frontera. He was flexible with the schedule and was always checking in to make sure we were having a good time. The food and sherry we tasted was incredible and spending time with Carlos felt like a day out with an old friend :) He even made a pit-stop on the way back to our hotel so that we could see the beach. Thank you so much for everything Carlos and team! Hopefully we will get a chance to visit the area again and take another tour!

    If you make it to Vejer la Frontera you must make time to explore it with Carlos! We did a private walking historical tour and then a tapas/sherry tour afterwards. HIs passion and knowledge of history, food, and sherry is impressive and he shared it with both humor and love. The tour and place were one of the highlights of our 3 week trip to Spain. Had we known how fun his tours were we would have stayed longer and done some of the other ones. He was very flexible with us and customized the day to our interests.

    We did the sherry and tapas tour with Carlos and also a day hike in El Estrecho and tour of Baelo Claudia. He also set us up to spend a half day in Aracena to see the Iberian pigs and how the ham is processed. Carlos is a great guy, well organised and his communication was fantastic. Just do it! Spend some time in beautiful Vejer and El Estrecho with Carlos. It is one of our highlight days of our month long trip in Andalusia! Thanks Carlos!

    We had a great time in Vejer de la Frontera where we decided to take this tour to discover the town, the guide was recommended by a friend of us, so we were sure we would hit the target with this trip!

    We felt it was very well organized and saw a lot of places in only two days (Molinos de Vejer, Arcos de la Frontera, Grazalema…) with wine and food tasting, hiking and more relaxing moments.

    The guide takes you to great places to eat, which are not tourist orientated. As a French person I was surprised by Carlos' wine knowledge and I still have a fond memory for the bluefin tuna we ate the first night! Carlos is passionate, flexible and super friendly, we had good laughs with him!

    I highly recommend this tour for foodies and Spanish culture lovers!

    Simply wonderful!

    We took this tour with Carlos on a sunny July evening which was perfect. His knowledge of sherry/wine and the region is excellent. He made the tour fun and informative - without being too technical. It was such an enjoyable evening and fantastic way to see more of Vejer and learn about the history and dynamics of the area. We were still chatting until well after the tour ended. We’d highly recommend this tour. It is excellent value for money - we tasted five wines/sherry and the accompanying food was delicious. If you know a little or know a lot, you’ll throughly enjoy this experience. Mucho Gracias Alex

    This is an absolutely fantastic tour - don't even hesitate, book book book! We wandered the beautiful streets of this picturesque village, sampling the most delicious tapas and sherry, and learning so much about pairing these from the brilliant Carlos. The food and drink are wonderful, but the knowledge, enthusiasm and passion that Carlos shows puts this tour as a definite must. Carlos also offers other tours - I will most definitely be back!

    My best friend and I wanted a long weekend away in Spain but didn't want to go to the typical places. So we decided to visit this village (I can't recommend it enough - so beautiful). To make the most of our time we decided to do the Tapas and Sherry tour and it did not disappoint. The guide Carlos had so much knowledge and was so passionate about the food and drink. We learnt loads and left full (and tipsy)! Would definitely recommend.
