Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

On this Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour, experience these three glorious countries with rich histories and distinct cultures. You'll overnight in Madrid, Seville, Granada, and the Costa del Sol in Spain; Coimbra and Lisbon in Portugal; and Rabat, Marrakesh, and Fez in Morocco.The tour will start in Madrid, where you’ll discover the main sights with a local guide. On the way to Portugal, visit Avila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its ancient fortified towers and walls, and beautiful Salamanca. The Portuguese pearls you’ll discover on this affordable tour are Coimbra, Obidos, Fatima with its famous Sanctuary, and the capital, Lisbon.You’ll cross the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco on the African continent by ferry to step back in time in Rabat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Morocco's capital since 1912. Fez is still Morocco's cultural and spiritual center, and its centerpiece is the Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded in the 9th century and whose palaces, madrasas fondouks, residences, mosques, and fountains date back to the 13th-14th centuries. Also founded in the 9th century, the red city of Marrakesh remains a tapestry of ramparts, mosques, palaces, gardens, vibrant public squares, and souks (markets). You’ll get to know this fascinating city with a local expert on the included tour. You'll also stop in Casablanca, Morocco's westernmost city and still known for the 1942 classic film with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. You will love the included guided visit to Granada's legendary Alhambra complex, a lavish palace and fortress built by Moorish kings in 889 AD, that you will appreciate even more after having visited Morocco.These are just some of the many highlights on this comprehensive and affordable Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour. It's a memorable budget vacation for value-mind travelers.

Day 1: ARRIVE IN MADRID, SPAIN.
Check into your hotel. Take advantage of any free time to explore lively Madrid with the help of the CosmosGO app. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers. (D)

Day 2: MADRID.
Spaniards say the Spanish capital, situated 2,180 feet above sea level, is the nearest thing to Heaven. It’s certainly worth making the most of today by joining the included guided sightseeing tour: a full panoramic drive by way of the Avenida Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Parliament Square, and a picture stop outside the Royal Palace. The optional trip to Toledo is most rewarding, too. The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus was made famous in El Greco’s painting, and even now it’s like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art. (B)

Day 3: MADRID–ÁVILA–SALAMANCA–COIMBRA, PORTUGAL.
Visit ancient fortified Ávila with its many towers, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to Salamanca and make sure you spend some time wandering around PLAZA MAYOR, the grandest square in Spain. Cross the frontier to Guarda, the highest town in Portugal. From here, descend to the valleys of the Serra da Estrela to Coimbra.
Today’s Distance: 329 mi/ 530 km (B,D)

Day 4: COIMBRA–FÁTIMA–OBIDOS–LISBON.

Henry the Navigator made Lisbon the 15th-century “Mistress of the Seas". On the included guided tour, see his monument, the Belem Tower, the Moorish Citadel, and the impressive Commerce Square, also known as Black Horse Square. Spend the afternoon at leisure—maybe in the Alfama’s tile-decorated streets, or take an optional excursion to coastal Estoril and Cascais. (B)

Day 6: LISBON–SEVILLE, SPAIN.
From the rolling plains of the Alentejo with its woodlands of cork and eucalyptus trees, head south to the brilliant light of Andalusia. Admire its neat, white-painted villages and sun-drenched plantations of olives, figs, and almonds while traveling towards magnificent Seville.
Today’s Distance: 261 mi/ 420 km (B,D)

Enjoy an orientation drive in this modern city and see the illustrious Hassan II Mosque. One of the largest mosques in the world, its minaret soars 689 feet into the sky. Continue on to the “red” oasis city of Marrakesh. An optional excursion this evening is the perfect end of the day.
Today’s Distance: 227 mi/ 365 km (B)

Day 10: MARRAKESH.
Today’s included city sightseeing with a Local Guide will make you feel like you’ve been whisked back in time. Founded in the 9th century, Marrakesh remains a tapestry of ramparts, mosques, palaces, gardens, and vibrant public squares and souks (markets)—where buying and selling and a fascinating carnival of entertainment occurs daily. Also see the BAHIA PALACE and MAJORELLE GARDENS. (B,D)

Day 11: MARRAKESH–FEZ.
Today, travel through the fragrant cedar forests of the Middle Atlas mountains, where a number of peaks soar above 13,000 feet in elevation. This range is home to the endangered Barbary ape, wild boar, and polecats. On your way north to Fez, enjoy glimpses of North African village life.
Today’s Distance: 311 mi/ 500 km (B,D)

By Meredith R on Sep 28, 2019

I had a wonderful experience with Cosmos on my tour. Our guide was organized, detailed, and always concerned about our happiness. He was wonderful. The bus was lovely, the people wonderful, and most of the accommodations were quality. Sometimes breakfast was a bit stressful since there were multiple tours in the building at the same time, and we had to wait in long lines or fight though big groups of people to get breakfast. But all of the included dinners were lovely, as were the additional excursions and all of the included sites. It was an overall wonderful experience.

By Vinod V on May 04, 2019

Julian was an able knowledgeable guide. He was in Control and look after his " Family" Some local guides were just going through the motions Some of the Hotels were suboptimal but we were warned by Julian. Madrid Introduction was fair but our first dinner could have been impressive and in NH -Vente Hotel. The Toledo excursion left little free time to explore Madrid Water is a basic neccesity and we on occasion had to walk in the heat to the local supermarket to avoid paying higher prices Comfort stops were a great concept but perhaps we could choose better venuesasidecv Morroco having Free time I believe about 2 hrs in the oppressive heat was ill advised. We had ample warning about the vendors mindset as being abrasive Walking through the Medina maze avoiding donkey landmines and pickpockets was an adventure that could have been shortened Finally rotating to the last seat of the bus on a long distance drive was pure torture an experience I do not care to repeat That being said overall aside from developing heat fatigue and developing cough curtesy of a fellow traveller, the overall trip was educational Julian was great, my fellow travellers were seasoned and I would go back to Spain and Portugal

By Rosemarie C on Jan 02, 2019

I had an amazing time on my January 2019 tour of Spain Portugal Morocco = under Tour Director, Julian. I am a solo female traveler and i had met other wonderful solo female travelers on this tour -to share my memories and experience with! It made my trip more memorable meeting these incredible ladies from different walks of life from different countries. I did opt to pay the single supplement, because I like my own privacy - and plus it is great to wind-down after touring all day with your tour-mates. The tour was amazing! It was very organized. Stayed a great hotels for the 3 star to 4 stars accommodations, food, the excursions were awesome - and the Tour Director, Julian did an incredible job - that he made it fantastic - that i will do another Cosmos tour again and recommend my friends, family, co-workers the same tour.

By Nancy T on Oct 06, 2018

good trip, excellence tour director and driver.

By Teresa M on Sep 08, 2018

Cosmos had the most professional yet personable tour director, Enrique. He explained things so that it was easy to understand. He went out of his way to treat us special (buying little snacks for us at different times) and he was always there for us if we wanted to explore on our own. Our bus driver Alfonso was so good at weaving in tight spots and was always there to help us off of the bus.

By Yiping C on Sep 06, 2018

Some of the hotel rooms are old and a condition is not good

By Shamim S on Apr 07, 2018

This was our first trip with Cosmos. We were pleased with our trip and it met the expectations as mentioned in the Cosmos itinerary booklet. The trip was very organized, and management of the group ( 42 in all ) was handled very efficently by the tour director, John during the whole trip.

By Shaukatali M on Apr 22, 2017

The tour was well-organized by the Tour Director. The accommodations in some cases were not up to our expectations. We were provided with twin bed in most of the hotels instead of the queen bed we had requested.

By Lorinda H on Mar 18, 2017

Wonderful tour. Our tour leader was very gifted in all ways. He could answer questions, manage unforeseen events, schedules, and get us all where we were supposed to be with such seemingly lack of effort. The tour was fast paced and a bit athletic, but all was worth the effort.

By Brenda W on Jan 02, 2017

This Spain, Portugal, Morocco tour is a terrific value. Our tour guide is an impressive historian, complete professional, and beautifully organized. He and the driver made our tour a brilliant journey.

By Kiran M on Aug 21, 2016

Accomodations were very budget and below average. There were AC's and lifts not working, no tea kettle in the room, beds were not cozy and comfortable, etc. This tour only covered stay and transportation package. There was no sightseeing. You would have to buy basic city tour excursions also. Everywhere you have to give tips and no standardisation at all. This tour must be redesigned. I will be looking for other tour companies in future.

By Kirit M on Jun 26, 2016

Too many guides in the trip. In some places we have tour director, guide for the country, local guide for city and the driver. If we follow guidelines provided, we have to give too many gratuities.

By Bhikhu P on May 19, 2016

Very good service and Guide with excellent coach.

By Roshni P on May 19, 2016

very nice service from guide and coach driver

By Dianne W on Oct 25, 2015

Just one motel.( I think it was the second last one ) ..beds too hard, no air conditioning, and the noise! (Below our window on the street)...all the people on the bus complained about this motel. ,

By Edith D on Sep 24, 2015

The trip was good but I wished that the drop off of passengers to the location of the visits were closer to the area. We have to walked in some places few blocks and the worst part was taking the ferry to Morocco. I know that we have to dragged our suit cases to the terminal and boat but the experience could have been easier if we were dropped off and picked up to the curve of the terminal-- just a little courtesy to the passengers. My suit case one wheel was broken in Seville when it was delivered in the room and to drag that suit case to the ferry was a night mare to me. I have been travelling and this is the worst service as far as luggage accommodation is concerned and I thought that the kind of service is tucked in to the price paid.

By Mary J on Sep 10, 2015

PLASE TELL FUTURE TRAVELERS: We were told to use the safe in our hotel rooms rather than taking our passports and all of our money out with us on the streets. In Madrid at the NH Abascol, two of our tour members did so and were robbed. Somehow someone entered their room, dumped the contents our of their suitcases, removed the safe and PUT IT INTO THE SUITCASES, and then exited with the suitcase. Those safes are not "safe." Please be advised to tell all future travelers, not to use the safe because we also learned that if the safe is lock with the travelers personal 4 digit pin and forgotten, then even the maid can open the safe!! Of course, this incident was not the fault of the tour director who was great and even was seen trying to help the couple who lost their valuables after he had gone off duty as our "official" tour director.

By Jaydev D on Sep 10, 2015

There should be a provision where water should be included in Moroccan meals!

By Deborah G on Aug 31, 2014

Overall, the tour was great -- the Tour Director was superior to other tour directors I've experienced. However, the Morocco portion of the trip should be with another tour.....driving/sitting on the bus for hours on end was too much----especially for the older travelers.

By Ann B on Aug 03, 2014

Best Cosmos tour I've ever taken! Best Tour Director I've ever had and best optional tours.

By Rehana K on Jul 20, 2014

Oor tour guide was excellent!

By Theresa M on Jul 13, 2014

Our tour director was excellent, very knowledgeable, helpful, patient and agreeable. He helped make the tour great!

By Marcus H on Jun 08, 2014

The entire vacation experience was excellent for the price paid. From the staff in the Houston office, to the tour director, to the coach driver, all were very professional. The director of our tour did an amazing job, keeping us on schedule and keeping the tour exciting for all.

By Marcia J on Nov 03, 2013

I was disappointed in the tour. When we arrived in Madrid, the hotel was loud and had paper thin walls, you could hear the people in the next room cough and talk. The food was not good and we went to the grocery across the street the second day because we we hungry. The tour director and driver were excellent and always tried to help. Some of the accommodations were better. The tour part of Morocco was a disappointment. They took us to Casablanca and dropped us off and told us to eat lunch at Kentucky Fried Chicken or Mcdonalds, and both were so dirty the restrooms were unusable. That was my romantic trip to Casablanca! We were taken to mosque after mosque and not really able to enjoy the cities and the flavor of the country.

By Minda L on Jul 14, 2013

Everything about the trip was wonderful. The amazing kudos go to the bus driver and the tour director.

By Maria K on Jun 20, 2013

The tour was lovely. The tour guide was great. The only comment I would like to make was the hotel in Rabat. This was the worse hotel we stayed at and the entire group agreed with this comment. Perhaps in the future, you can let Cosmos know that a different hotel would be greatly appreciated by their travelers. It was dirty and dark.

By Ramesh B on Jun 02, 2013

The hotels were sub par except in Marrakech and Fez where they were excellent. The vegetarian meals that we had requested were tasteless at all places. The bus did not have seat pockets or drink holders or any other facility except for good seats. Many of the hotels selected did not have wifi in the room or it was not free as in Madrid.

By Vijayalakshmi B on Jun 02, 2013

The vegetarian meals that were provided were not tasty. It was just boiled vegetables they gave us at many places. That was horrible. Some of the hotels selected were not good...

By Richard G on Sep 30, 2012

I liked the mix of people...at least 7 countries represented. Made for interesting conversations. Quite the strenuous trip...lots of walking each day. Hard to understand the tour guides and their accents especially at the back of the bus.

By Minerva C on Sep 02, 2012

Everything was on time, clean and very informative. Food and service great. All the tour guides and the Director, went beyond their services.Even our bus driver was super. The whole experiance for a first time travel was AWESOME will do it again.

By Sarah C on Jul 01, 2012

I had a great experience with Affordable Tours and Cosmo Tours and I would definitely consider using them again in the future!

By Jan B on Jun 28, 2012

Do want to say that our tour guide was fabulous!!!!! I can't say enough positive things about him. Some of the hotels were a bit shabby but those were only for one night. All in all a great tour!

By Lisa C on Jun 24, 2012

Cosmos was very well organized, great tour leader and I got alot of vacation for the money I spent. I just got home today and will be looking at affordable tours again to book my next trip.

Hotel in Fez -Elevator broke down Hotel in Coimbra -Could not adjust temperature and water was brown in color when you first turned water on. Hotel in Rabat-Smelt moldy Ferry from Tangier to Algeciras-Elevator did not work and could not find the tour director and about 20 of us had to drag the luggage to the fourth floor. We found out later from another group that there was a ramp to drag the luggage up. In Coimbra the tour director told us to walk up on the steps for about 15 minutes one way to see the University library and it was closed when we got there. Of course he did not walk with us.

We came back safely and had a wonderful experience. I had minor things to think about, but after all everything was all right. Thanks.

My first such bus tour was better than I had anticipated. Certain hotels were particularly good and breakfasts were better than what I had expected (more American than continental). One of the few criticisms (which I also made in Cosmos' survey) is that the bus seemed to drive at only 100 km/h (even in 120 zones) and comfort stops were too long, leaving less time for sightseeing.

We were very happy and satifiied with the tour arrangements and the capability of the tour Director. It was indeed well worth the money we paid. We would suggest that the optional tours be also included with the payments in the US. Paying in cash currencies in either dollars or euros did pose a problem since most hotels do not accept or cash American Express travellers checks in Spain, Portugal or Morocco.
