Let’s board on our fully equipped bus and travel to Spain’s capital city, Madrid. It take about 7 hours to reach destination so itinerary includes a short lunch stop in Zaragoza to admire its famous Basilica del Pilar. We will reach Madrid late afternoon, check in and offer you a free evening or dinner on request.

Let’s discover this cheerful and vibrant city after breakfast. Famous museums, busy streets with wide range of shopping options, great traditional, modern and world gastronomy and an unbeatable nightlife. We will walk around the charming historic spots in old Madrid centre, plenty of traditional family-run century-old bars where people meet up for a drink. We will offer you the possibility to visit great art museums and historical buildings: Prado Museum, the stunning Royal Palace, the Plaza Mayor with 400 years of history, the buzzing Puerta del Sol, the famous Gran Vía full of shops … And remember, Madrid also means relaxing in enormous parks such El Retiro, so take the chance and enjoy a promenade in the city centre green lung.

There are several sights outside Madrid, within easy reach for a day trip. One of clients’ favourites is Toledo, the “city of the three cultures” and one of the largest heritage sites in Europe, where you can see a Gothic cathedral, a 10th century mosque and two synagogues in the space of just few metres. Once an Imperial City, our guides will make sure visitors see its views, visit the Alcázar, walk around its winding streets and enjoy its local gastronomy.

Next destination is Seville. South Spain’s most charming and monumental city will leave you great memories. La Giralda Tower, the Cathedral and the Real Alcázar fortress are its best known sights but Seville is more than just fantastic monuments. Seville is a city of lively streets and courtyards of orange trees and neighbourhoods as Triana with countless tapas outings; it is a city of large open spaces as the huge Plaza de España and María Luisa Park; it is a lively night-life place where locals go out to eat “pescaíto” (fish) and drink a cold beer or a manzanilla sweet wine. End the evening with Spanish tradition at a flamenco show “tablao” and your day will be complete.

After breakfast we will take the bus and leave Spain to travel to Lisbon, Portugal’s capital city. A historical site full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and high-tech innovation. A sight-seeing will show you around its main avenues till Rossio square, the heart of Lisbon. Alfama district deserves a walk: the oldest and most picturesque quarter, known by its step streets and yellow trams and topped by a castle with stunning views. End with a tour to Betlem Tower and Monastery of Los Jeronimos.


When it comes to culture and tradition, a Fado music evening is a must. If you are a foodie do not miss its best restaurants, which offer a cuisine dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved “bacalhau” (salted cod).

After a relaxing evening and overnight in Lisbon, it is time to discover the surroundings. Our day trip will take you to Sintra & Cascais. Located 30km from Lisbon, Sintra is a place awarded by UNESCO with World Heritage Site status, with remarkable monuments as the Town Palace, the Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle. Our day-tour continues to the former fisherman village of Cascais, where you will enjoy a picturesque architecture. Nowadays Cascais is very lively and cosmopolitan town that still preserves a great deal of its earlier aristocratic atmosphere. A stroll through its streets is particularly recommended, where you can find shops of the highest quality or just relax at one of the many outdoors cafés.

A special mention is reserved for the local cuisine, especially the fresh fish and shellfish dishes, which can be enjoyed in the region’s many restaurants.

Our sample trip comes to an end in Portugal. Enjoy a last evening in Lisbon and take your flight home next day.
