You'll then arrive in Seville, a lively city on the banks of the Guadalquivir River.

Itinerary

Day 1 Welcome to Madrid!

On arrival, you will be met by your English-speaking driver and transferred privately to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to begin exploring the city. Start your time in Madrid on a sweet note by indulging in a plate of the city's most iconic dessert - churros con chocolate!

In the evening, head to the city's most vibrant square, Puerta de Sol. The streets will be alive with lights, street performers, and locals heading to their favorite tapas bars for a snack before starting the evening's festivities.

Day 2 Madrid

In the morning, following your buffet breakfast, you’ll embark on a comprehensive city tour!

The remainder of the day is yours at leisure; Madrid is famous for its art – so perhaps pay a visit to the Prado Museum, home to masterworks of Goya, Velazquez and El Greco; the 19th century Villahermosa Palace, now the Thyssen-Bornemizsa Museum. Or explore the Reina Sofia, showcasing more than 300 modern works by Dali, Miro, and Picasso among others.

In the evening, why not head to the city's most popular neighborhood for tapas tasting, La Latina! Treat yourself to a sip and snack at one tapas bar, then sample the one next door until you've had your fill!

Day 3 Madrid - Seville

After breakfast, make your way to the train station in Madrid, to pick up the high-speed train to Seville. Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville enjoys a rich Moorish heritage, with many streets, squares and and historic quarters boasting UNESCO World Heritage designation.

Once checked-in and settled at your hotel, take a walk around town! Pass by locals performing flamenco on the streets, musicians treating passersby to ballads on the Spanish guitar, or simply the breathtaking buildings sprinkled throughout the city. 

Day 4 Seville

After breakfast, embark on your comprehensive city tour, which will end with a a scenic river cruise!

Seville is rumored to be the birthplace of flamenco, the perfect place to take in a show! Take advantage of Seville's many peñas, or flamenco social clubs - the grand finale includes an opportunity for audience members to hop on the stage and join in on the flamenco fun!

Day 5 Seville - Barcelona

Take the high-speed rail today from Seville to Barcelona - Spain's Catalonian capital! After checking into your hotel, the remainder of the day is free for you to explore the city.

Your first stop should be one of the most famous and breathtaking buildings in the city: the Sagrada Familia! This awe-inspiring structure has been under construction for 150 years, and remains in the works to this day. Don't forget to stop by the crypt where the architect Antoni Gaudi himself is buried!

In the evening, head to the city's famous Magic Fountain and be treated to a spectacular water show filled with music, vibrant colors, and streams of water that dance to the beat. 

Day 6 Barcelona

Start the day off with a half-day tour of Barcelona's highlights!

Afterward, you may want to take a stroll to the  Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter), where the 13th century Gothic Cathedral is located. Finish your last day by exploring Barcelona’s most famous avenue, Las Ramblas! Be sure to make a stop at the bustling Boqueria market, where you can sample the cuisines of the city; treat yourself to a serving of paella, Barcelona's signature dish, before heading back to your accommodation.

Day 7 Depart Spain

Your tour of Spain’s traditional cities comes to an end today. Following breakfast, you will be transferred back to the airport, for your return flight home.

Car & hotels were not booked until I called one week before The trip & I already was planning restaurant near the hotel posted on the website. All three hotels were different then listed in the description. First hotel was not good. (Definitely not the Benson) in Portland. Very small & had to put our suitcase on the bedside table. Very limited outlets for electronic devices. Also Portland is no longer a gem. Crazy amount of homeless with tents, garbage, feces & drug use in the sidewalk. Downtown business boarded up. Did not feel safe walking to & from the hotels!!!

Disappointed with GVV's trip planning. GVV cancelled our trip several times due to COVID, then increased our costs and fees with each rebooking despite the cancellation being due to a world wide pandamic and despite purchasing travel insurance. We chose their package Irish Castles and Countryside. Two stays were hotels, not castles. Hotel Woodstock was disgusting and full of children running up and down the halls well past midnight. At Lough Rynn Castle, our room was in an out building, not in the castle. The service however was impeccable. I could have planned this trip better myself.

The trip was as advertised. The Check My Trip worked well for storing and receiving information. The Hotel was as advertised except we reserved double beds and received a family room with three beds. We did receive a partial ocean view room and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend the Cartagena Plaza Hotel as the hotel is in a great location and the beach is just across the street. I did rent a car and traveled across Cartagena. I had a great time and would recommend your company. Keep up the good work.
