Itinerary

Barcelona Arrive at any time. Because first impressions matter, begin your journey the right way - by heading out with your CEO and group for drinks. Explore and unwind in Barcelona’s most renowned neighbourhoods for nightlife - El Raval, El Born, or The Gothic Quarter.
Barcelona/Madrid Enjoy an orientation walk along Las Ramblas. Take some time to visit the Gaudí buildings, or explore the Gothic Quarter before boarding an afternoon train to Madrid.
Madrid Enjoy Spain's beautiful capital on an orientation walk. Free time to visit its many sites, from art museums to sprawling squares. Enjoy a night out with the group. Madrid's nightlife is world renowned!
Madrid/Granada Full day of free time before transferring to Granada in the afternoon.
Granada Enjoy an orientation walk in Granada. Opt to relax in one of the many hammam baths around town. Enjoy a tapas bar crawl with the group in the evening. First drink's on us.
Granada/Seville Journey to Seville and explore this thriving university town. Opt to visit the Real Alcázar, a Moorish palace, or take in an evening flamenco show.
Seville/Lagos Cross into Portugal, and enjoy the Algarve Coast.
Lagos Spend the day on the Algarve with free time for hiking, water activities, or chilling out oceanside.
Lagos/Lisbon Take a train up the coast to Portugal's vibrant capital, and enjoy an orientation walk. Free time to visit Cristo Rei for sweeping views of the area, check out the monuments of the Belem neighbourhood, or relax in a café. Indulge in the town's great nightlife.
Lisbon/Casablanca Fly to Casablanca and enjoy free time in Morocco's largest city.
Casablanca/Chefchaouen With a good night's sleep behind you, set out from Casablanca. With the bright blue waters of the Atlantic to your left and the sun drenched wonders of Morocco to your right, travel up the coast to Morocco's capital city, Rabat. Stretch your legs as you wander the ramparts and colourful alleys of the city's old quarter. Take in breathtaking views from Kasbah des Oudaias, then indulge in lunch. After you've eaten the hangry away, continue toward Chefchaouen. Here, beneath the soaring Rif mountains, feeling the blues takes on a different meaning. Take an orientation walk through the blue-washed streets of Chefchaouen before settling in for the night.
Chefchaouen Hoping for free time to explore all Chefchaouen has to offer? Wish granted! Spend your day taking in the splendor of the city and it's surrounding geography. If the (Rif) Mountains are calling, you should definitely answer. Opt to pre-book the Rif Valley Mountains Hike. Or, opt to visit the Spanish Mosque for breathtaking sunset views of the city.
Chefchaouen/Fès Fès awaits! Upon arrival, put your free time to good use by checking out Moroccan artwork and historical artifacts at the Belghazi Museum or visit an Amazigh (or Berber) pharmacy (a far cry from the kind of pharmacy you may be used to at home). Wander the many mazes of Fès's colourful, ancient tanneries. Consider a jaunt to the imperial city of Meknès by pre-booking the Meknès City Tour during the booking process.
Fès With so much to see, another free day in Fès is always a good idea. Breathe in decadent spices (oxygen is for the weak anyway, right?) as you sample treats from the many food carts scattered throughout the medina. Explore the artisan quarters as you take in the city that is often referred to as the cultural heart of Morocco. In the evening, opt to partake in a traditional dinner in a converted riad complete with music and belly dancing.
Fès/Marrakech After getting back on the road and watching the scenery roll by, arrive in vibrant, bustling Marrakech. Spend the evening exploring the gardens, souks, and other wonders of Marrakech.
Marrakech Parting is such sweet sorrow, but perhaps consider booking a few extra nights in Marrakech to experience the city further.
