Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : Arrive Madrid (2 Nights)

Location: Madrid

Accommodation: Occidental Castellana Norte

Accommodation Name: Occidental Castellana Norte Madrid

Meals Included: No Meals

It won't take long for you to fall in love with Madrid. This beautiful capital was revived by King Charles III several centuries ago and the city is still as graceful as ever. Arriving today, check in to your hotel and get settled in before meeting up with your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a look at what’s to come on your Spain value tour. Venture out into the streets at sunset and watch this football-mad city really come to life. You might like to join us for an optional walking tour around the city sights with the opportunity to get your first taste of tapas at a local restaurant. You'll quickly find out why the city's lively nightlife keeps the locals up until all hours of the night.

Day 2 : Madrid Sightseeing And Free Time

Location: Madrid

Accommodation: Occidental Castellana Norte

Accommodation Name: Occidental Castellana Norte Madrid

Meals Included: Breakfast

Gear up for a busy morning of sightseeing when you visit Madrid. Your Local Specialist will reveal all the secrets behind some of the city's most famous sights, kicking things off by heading up the Gran Vía through the heart of Madrid. See the Cibeles Fountain, the Royal Palace and the Paseo de la Castellana. This afternoon, you'll have some free time to spend as you like. History lovers will likely want to join our optional visit to the UNESCO-listed city of Segovia, with its Roman aqueduct and fairytale Alcázar, like something out of a storybook. Once you return to Madrid, you'll have another chance to discover the buzzing nightlife, which can be found spilling out into open-air cafés and pulsing plazas.

Day 3 : Madrid – Toledo – Seville

Location: Madrid, Toledo, Puerto Lápice, Seville

Accommodation: MA Congresos

Accommodation Name: Hotel M.A. Sevilla Congresos Seville

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

You'll watch history come to life when you take a trip to the hilltop town of Toledo today, with its ancient city walls and long legacy of traditional sword making. Take a sightseeing tour with your Local Specialist by your side, with every street showing off yet another stunning sight with views of the synagogue, cathedral and grand plazas. You'll get to visit a steel workshop and discover the tradition of sword-making which dates back to Roman times, then we'll continue our journey south to Puerto Lápice where the fictional Don Quixote was made a knight by a local innkeeper. Watch the plains of La Mancha melt into the hills of Andalucía with peaceful white-washed villages that move to their own time. Seville is your final destination today and we'll stay here for the next two nights.

Day 4 : Seville Sightseeing And Free Time

Location: Seville

Accommodation: MA Congresos

Accommodation Name: Hotel M.A. Sevilla Congresos Seville

Meals Included: Breakfast

The sizzling city of Seville is filled with the Spanish zest for life you'll come to know and love. It's a place of beautiful monuments, fine weather and it's also the home of the flamenco - no wonder it has been the royal family's (and thousands of travellers) favourite holiday retreat for centuries. Join your Local Specialist today to uncover some of the city's most famous sites, including Maria Luisa Park, built in 1929 for the Ibero-American exposition. Spend some time getting lost on purpose in the maze of lanes in Seville's Old Quarter or opt to join a tour to the grand 14th-century Moorish Alcazar. You'll have the whole evening free to explore your way, but you can't visit Seville and not witness a fiery flamenco show and our Optional Experience will take you to the best flamenco show in town.

Day 5 : Seville – Granada

Location: Seville, Granada

Accommodation: Macia Condor

Accommodation Name: Hotel Maciá Condor Granada

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

We'll begin our journey from kings to emirs as we travel from Seville to Granada this morning. A visit to this city will take you back in time to when the Moors ruled the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, their last fortress before being exiled to North Africa. You can still see their Arab influences in the Moorish architecture and tetería tea houses and we'll show you where to look this afternoon before you head out into the cobbled streets to explore your way. Alternatively, consider joining an Optional Experience tour of the Albaicín Quarter, the city's oldest neighbourhood, known as the Arab Quarter. You'll discover its Moorish history and see the fortified citadel of the Alhambra on the hilltop overlooking Granada. If you're looking for the perfect way to end the day, why not head out to a lively gyspy performance?

Day 6 : Granada – Guadix – Valencia

Location: Granada, Guadix, Valencia

Accommodation: NH Las Ciencias

Accommodation Name: NH Valencia Las Ciencias

Meals Included: Breakfast

Head into the hills of Guadix this morning where you'll spot the magical white chimneys that rise from under the ground, where generations of the city's trogloditas have lived for several centuries. You'll have the chance to take some photos of these curious cave dwellings before moving on to the modern city of Valencia or 'Bah-len-thee-a' as the locals call it. Venture out on an orientation tour with your Travel Director, breathing in the scent of orange blossoms as you see the Art Nouveau, Train Station Estación del Norte, Towers of Serrano and Quart and Mercado de Colon, which was declared sacred in the 13th century. You'll also make a stop to see Valencia's unique City of Arts and Sciences, a futuristic recreation centre that celebrates culture and science.

Day 7 : Valencia – Peñíscola – Barcelona Sightseeing

Location: Valencia, Peniscola, Barcelona

Accommodation: Hesperia Sant Just

Accommodation Name: Hesperia Barcelona Sant Just

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Today we continue our scenic trip to the Levant region to Peñíscola, 'The City in the Sea' where the towering Templar castle, once used as a palace by the Spanish Pope, was made famous in the Hollywood film, El Cid. We'll make our way along the beautiful Costa Daurada to the sun-drenched shores of Barcelona. Head out into the city with your Local Specialist to discover some of the city's highlights this afternoon. See Gaudí's incredible La Sagrada Família and the Plaça de Catalunya. Stop to watch street performers and artists and take in the most stunning views over the city from the top of Montjuïc. This evening, enjoy dinner together and look back on your amazing experiencia Española.

Day 8 : Barcelona Free Day

Location: Barcelona

Accommodation: Hesperia Sant Just

Accommodation Name: Hesperia Barcelona Sant Just

Meals Included: Breakfast

This is the last full day of your Spain vacation package and your chance to really get to know Barcelona. You can spend this free day however you like, whether you want to see the famous façades of Spanish Art Nouveau architect Antoni Gaudí, walk through the leafy lanes of the Gothic quarter or join an Optional Experience visit to the monastery in the Montserrat mountains to see the beloved Black Madonna. After sunset, continue the adventures and perhaps sample some cava at one of the bars overlooking the sea with new travel friends.

Best trip ever!

20-Jan-2023

Our trip was absolutely outstanding, organized and just plain fun. Agnes is a wonderful tour-guide, knowledgeable and we never had to worry about anything. And Frank, our bus driver, always had a smile and gave us the smoothest bus ride ever! And I've been on buses around the world... If we ever go again (hopefully), Costsaver would be my first and only choice and hopefully we will get "team" Agnes and Frank again.
