Madrid, Cordoba and Seville
Your adventure begins as we depart the Spanish capital of Madrid at 7:30am on your relaxing journey to Seville safe in the hands of your fabulous Busabout crew. We have a stop in Cordoba to grab some lunch and see the Mezquita, an ancient cathedral/mosque. This evening we arrive in the picturesque metropolis of Seville and are introduced to the city with an intimate walking tour with a local guide. Enjoy a tapas dinner or some sundowners at the hostel rooftop bar this evening as the sun sets over the city. Then feel free to relax or explore the city’s eclectic nightlife options.
Seville to Lagos
We make our way towards Portugal at midday once you have had your breakfast. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as the coach carries you across the Portuguese border and along the Atlantic coast before our afternoon arrival in the city of Lagos. Check into your new digs and relax or stretch your legs and get a feel for your new surroundings. This evening we have an optional delicious, traditional dinner. Tonight, in a city renowned for its vast variety of watering holes, follow your guide as they lead you to all the best bars for an epic Busabout pub crawl!
Sleep in late if you’re feeling particularly tender, as today is full of free time so you can set the pace. We offer an optional kayaking outing departing early in the morning, so dust off the oars and get set to explore the stunning sea grottos of the Algarve. Spend your time soaking up the sun or having a swim at one of the many gorgeous beaches in Lagos or delve the depths of history as you explore the old town. Tonight, prepare for round 2, as you head out for another night on the town to revisit your favourite establishments from last night, if you can still find them!
Lagos and Tarifa (Optional Tangiers)
Today you have the option of enjoying each meal of the day in a different country! We kick off with a scrumptious breakfast in Portugal before making our way southeast along the coast on towards our lunchtime destination of Tarifa, Spain. Enjoy a delicious traditional meal for lunch and check out the local sights including Guzman castle, and an assortment of great beaches along the Straits of Gibraltar. Tonight you have the option of taking a ferry into Morocco for a guided tour of the city and its markets. Join us for a delicious, traditional dinner and a night in the beautiful Moroccan gem of Tangiers.
Tarifa to Ronda to Granada
Today enjoy your breakfast and your final few hours in Tarifa, so see those last minute sights and get your souvenir shopping done, as at lunch time we board our coach and begin the next leg of our journey onwards to Granada via Ronda. Take some time to explore Ronda and its magnificent bridges. We then make our way to the provincial capital of Granada. Join your guide this evening for a delicious traditional tapas dinner. Tonight you have the opportunity to join us for an optional excursion to watch an incredible flamenco show deep within the Sacromonte caves.
Today we get right into the action after breakfast. Join us for an included tour of the glorious palace compound of Alhambra. Described by the Moors as “a pearl set in emeralds” the pristine white fortress stands a stony monolith amongst the surrounding trees. Afterwards we offer a relaxing excursion to soak off your stresses in a Moorish Haaman. This evening join your fabulous Busabout guide for a night on the town. Since it’s the last night let’s send it off with a bang and enjoy a few drinks with your fellow passengers and make some memories as you dance the night away awash in the vibrant nightlife of Granada.
Granada to Consuegra to Toledo to Madrid
Enjoy another great breakfast as we depart Granada for our final destination, the Spanish capital of Madrid. We have two stops en route with our first being at the world famous windmills of Consuegra, which became popular in the 16th century upon the publication of Don Quixote. Our second stop sees us arrive in the religious mixing pot of Toledo, renowned for its coexistence of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures. Tonight we arrive in Madrid and share a final dinner before saying our goodbyes. We hope to see you again, and if you’re continuing your journey on our Hop-on Hop-off network, the next stop is Lisbon!
