Meet your trip leader and group today in London and travel across the English Channel and on to Paris. Alternatively, join in Paris where the tour kicks off with a ‘City Lights' tour and delicious welcome dinner.
Stop in the heart of the Loire Valley's chateaux country before continuing to the wine-producing region of Bordeaux. This gorgeous city was once known as the ‘Sleeping Beauty' but these days this exciting university town barely seems to sleep at all!
Sample some of the region's famous Bordeaux wine before travelling to historic Carcassonne for a walking tour. From afar, it looks like a fairytale fortress, but close up you can see that the massive rampart walls, with their 52 stone towers, were built for strength.
Travel through the majestic Pyrénées Mountains today, stopping_in the small but perfectly formed country of Andorra to admire its spectacular scenery and to indulge in a spot of duty-free shopping. Continue your journey to arrive in the funky city of Barcelona.
Explore Barcelona at your own pace, from the old port district of Barceloneta to the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter. Hit the beach if you just want to chill on your last day. Anyone up for an authentic flamenco show this evening? The tour ends on Day 7.
