Short Description

Sip your way through Spain on this unique multi-city vacation package. Experience the eclectic vibrancy of Madrid, the vast beauty of La Rioja, the artistic bustle of Bilbao, and the coastal class of San Sebastian. Begin your journey in Madrid, where you'll stroll through Buen Retiro Park and treat yourself to churros con chocolate in Plaza Mayor. Consider attending a Flamenco show! Sit in awe as your eyes attempt to follow this colorful, traditional dance.

Make your way to the world-renowned wine region of La Rioja. Frolic through the green vineyards, then enjoy wine tastings at the Ribera del Duero and Rioja wineries. Where there is Spanish wine, there are Spanish tapas! Be treated to a gourmet lunch after you pay a visit to the Rioja wine museum.

Keep the fun going and head to the magnificent Marques de Riscal. Admire this architectural masterpiece while tasting some of Spain's very best wine. Stop over in Bilbao and sight-see through the city. Come face-to-face with the massively intricate Guggenheim Museum, stroll through Plaza Nueva, and gawk at the city's amazing architecture. 

The last leg of your vacation will be spent in postcard-worthy San Sebastian. Gaze out at the bright blue-green ocean, walk along white sand beaches, and dine at fabulous seaside restaurants. Indulge in authentic Spanish cuisine on your tapas tour, then sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious dinner.

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!!!

It’s my first time booking a vacation on this company. I was not disappointed, the price of the 3 days Hawaiian vacation including the hotel and flight is wonderful. There were no issues encountered during our travel. Will definitely book another vacation with this company

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.
