Tour Itinerary

This trip covers Spain, Morocco, and Portugal, concentrating on the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula. Start with an included welcome dinner in Madrid. Two-night stays in the cities of Madrid, Lisbon, and Seville allow enough time for in-depth sightseeing, including visits to Madrid’s Prado Museum, Lisbon’s Jeronimos Monastery, and Seville’s Alcazar. In Salamanca, a special dinner at a local restaurant has been included so that you can sample the local specialties. Another highlight is an elevator ride from lower to upper Lisbon to enjoy the views. The overnight in Tangier gives you a nice taste of Morocco, with a spectacular panoramic drive to Cap Spartel, where a glass of hot mint tea and biscuits await. Enjoy ferry crossings over the Strait of Gibraltar and a full day at leisure at the Costa del Sol, giving you the possibility to join an optional excursion to the Rock of Gibraltar. Continue to Granada to visit the famed Alhambra complex and the Water Gardens of the Generalife. Also stop in Toledo, where you’ll see one of El Greco’s most famous paintings. Back in Madrid, a farewell dinner celebrates the success of your Iberian Vacation.

Time to rest or to start exploring the Spanish capital. At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and traveling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)

Day 2: Madrid.
The capital of Spain since 1561, Madrid today is a strikingly modern city, the showcase of a country resolutely turned towards the future. Your Local Guide takes you to the Puerta del Sol, Plaza de España with its monument to Cervantes, the Parliament, Cibeles Fountain, elegant Calle Alcala, and Paseo de Castellana. Then, the highlight: a visit to the palatial PRADO MUSEUM with its priceless art treasures. In the afternoon, an optional excursion to El Escorial can be arranged. (B)

Day 3: Madrid–Segovia–Avila–Salamanca.
A day in beautiful Castile. Cross the rugged Sierra de Guadarrama on the way to Segovia, famous for the 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct.

Overnight in Salamanca, where [LF] a special dinner with wine awaits you at one of Salamanca’s fine restaurants. (B,D)

Day 4: Salamanca–Fatima–Lisbon, Portugal.
The majestic scenery of the Serra da Estrela mountain range forms the backdrop of your morning drive into Portugal.

This evening, an optional dinner with Fado-style entertainment is the perfect introduction to Portugal’s capital. (B)

Day 5: Lisbon.
Lisbon was the center of Europe’s longest-lived overseas empire. Morning sightseeing with a Local Guide features a drive through the Baixa quarter’s main squares and a walk through the cobblestone alleys of quaint ALFAMA, the popular quarter of the seamen and Fado singers. Drive along the grand Avenida da Liberdade up to Pombal Square. Stop for pictures of Belem Tower, guarding the mouth of the Tagus, and the Monument to the Discoverers.

Highlight this morning is the [LF] ELEVATOR RIDE to upper Lisbon, before a scenic drive back into Spain and to the vibrant capital of Andalusia, Seville, where dinner awaits you at your hotel. (B,D)

Day 7: Seville.
During your sightseeing tour with a Local Guide, hear about the city’s role in Roman times, its conquest by the Moors in 712 AD, and its contribution to the discovery of the New World. Admire Maria Luisa Park, the Golden Tower on the Guadalquivir River, and the university that used to be the tobacco factory of Carmen fame. Then, stroll through the narrow lanes of the charming SANTA CRUZ QUARTER. Highlight is a visit to the ALCAZAR, founded in the 11th century as a Moorish fortress, with its Palacio de Don Pedro. For those interested, an optional extended guided visit to the cathedral is available, and tonight, for a truly Andalusian night out, reserve a seat at our optional Flamenco show. (B)

Day 8: Seville–Tangier, Morocco.
Through the sunny sherry wine region of Jerez to Algeciras. Board your FERRY and sail across the Straits of Gibraltar to Africa.

Day 11: Costa del Sol–Granada.
Into the mountains to history-steeped Granada. A guided walking tour features its main attraction, the ALHAMBRA COMPLEX.

Of all the hotels on this trip, Hotel Agumar was the worst in quality. It didn't match the price point of the package and other people in the group agreed. The best one was the Melia Torremolinos. It was the best combo of quality and location. My suggestion too is to include more in the base package and less on the optional to make it more valuable for more of the people.

By Margaret I on May 28, 2011

Our tour through Globus to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco was a very good tour, and our tour director, was one of the best directors we have had on a tour. She is experienced, knowledgable, and well organized, as well as pleasant and personable. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful experience.

By Thomas M on Mar 20, 2010

This was the first trip we ever made with Globus. It was a wonderful experience and we were delighted in seeing the countries we visited. Our tour guide has an excellent background in the history and geopgraphical areas, and has an engaging personality. She was most helpful in every way. One suggestion I would make: This was a very energetic tour with lots of walking and upstairs climbing. Perhaps this should be emphasised in your literature so that senior citizens, or persons with some physical diabilities would be aware of the obligations involved.
