Summary

This sample itinerary can be customized to your specifications. Take only parts of this trip, modify, add ... whatever suits you!

This 12-day trip was chosen by a family group of 12 who travelled together in September, 2014. They gathered in Barcelona where they met their Spanish trip host who was with them throughout the journey. Where a special activity or tour was included, they had the additional input of a specialist guide. They enjoyed excursions that centred around the culture of Spain: tasting tours, special meals to enjoy the food & wine, tapas tours, a cooking class, vineyard visits. Integral to the program were the cities, small and large: Barcelona, San Sebastian, Madrid, so list a few. This sample trip offers history & culture (food & wine).

"This trip was absolutely perfect. Every day, people were in awe of all the amazing things we saw and did. They never realized before how easy travel could be."  C&GN, Sept '14
