Itinerary

  • Day 1: Overnight flight to Spain

    Board your overnight flight, bound for Spain, where food and nightlife (and Felipe VI) are king. Cafes and restaurants line the streets of Madrid, which is good because Spanish tapas are must-try. And then try again. You know, for quality-testing purposes

  • Day 2: Arrive in Madrid + Welcome Dinner

    Welcome to Madrid! Spain’s capital is famous for its world-class art museums, live music scene, and never-ending nightlife. It seems people never sleep here (except for two hours after lunch). Madrid is a city that definitely knows how to relax and have fun. Get ready—your life is about to get loco.

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

    Today's highlights:

    • Meet an EF representative at the airport.
    • Transfer to your accommodation and check in.
    • Receive the latest schedule from your Tour Director.
    • Meet your fellow travelers as they arrive.
  • Day 3: Sightseeing Tour of Madrid

    A nearly endless amounts of tapas, sangria, and Spanish Golden Age architecture will greet you in this city located at the very center of Spain. Discover many of the most popular destinations before getting cultured at one of the world’s leading art museums. And remember, there’s always room for more tapas.

    Today's highlights:

    • Journey to the very heart of Madrid at the Puerta del Sol, aka the “Gate of the Sun.”
    • Shop, walk, and enjoy the outdoors and a bronze statue of King Phillip III at Plaza Mayor (Main Square).
    • Check out the Picassos and Dalís at the Reina Sofia, or see the works of the old Renaissance masters at the Prado.

    Free time suggestions

    El Retiro Park: Once belonging to the Spanish Monarchy, this now public park contains a variety of statues and museums, the famed Rosaleda rose garden, the Palacio de Cristal, and Retiro Pond—a great spot for watching people and street performers alike.
    Malasaña Neighborhood: This happening area is known for a large student population and streets filled with coffee shops, bakeries, and vintage clothing stores. Then at night, edgy dance and rock clubs come to life so you can dance the night away.

  • Day 4: Travel to Ibiza

    Wave goodbye to Madrid, stuff some tapas in your pockets for safe-keeping, and pop on your sunglasses. You’re headed to Ibiza! Where the sun is almost always shining, and the party literally never stops.

    Today's highlights:

    • Board your morning flight from Madrid to Ibiza.
    • Arrive at your accommodation, and get ready for non-stop dancing, gorgeous beaches, and nightlife that is unrivaled.
    • Get the lay of the land on a walking tour of the island—it’s kind of unfair that Ibiza got all of the beauty and all of the fun of the Balearic Island family.
    • Keep an eye out for mermaids—legend has it that Ibiza is home to the mythological sirens that tried to lure Odysseus from his ship in Homer’s Odyssey.
  • Day 5: Free Day in Ibiza + Optional Catamaran Cruise

    Enjoy a free day in Ibiza to explore the beaches, the old town, or choose to keep the party going on a luxury catamaran in Ibiza’s crystal-clear waters.

    Ibiza Coast Catamaran Cruise (extra cost)

    You didn’t really think you’d go all the way to Ibiza and not rent a boat for the day, did you? Hop aboard to soak up the sun and set the onboard dance floor on fire.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 6: Free Day in Ibiza

    Good morning, Ibiza! The settlers of this piece of paradise dedicated the island to the god of music and dance, so it’s only fitting that the island is now a hotspot for all DJ-, club-, and dance party-related things. Apart from being all about that bass, Ibiza is overflowing with vibrant nature. The island has 57 different beaches, and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its top-of-the-line shores and sea life.

    Free time suggestions

    Dalt Vila: Walk up to this grand fortress that sits above the town, filled with winding cobblestone streets and quaint charm that’ll have you stepping back into history.
    Sunset drinks: When the sun goes down in Ibiza, Café del Mar and Mambo are the places to be. With a drink in hand and the sunset in front of you, it really doesn’t get better than this.

  • Day 7: Travel to Barcelona

    You’re off to Barcelona, a city of endless parties, wacky architecture, and premium beaches—which also happen to be where the clubs are. So throw on your walking shoes, your party pants, and any shirt you’d like. Barcelona is the fiesta that keeps on fiesta…ing.

    Today's highlights:

    • Arrive in Barcelona and settle in to your accommodations.
    • Join your Tour Director for a quick orientation walk of the surrounding sights.
  • Day 8: Tour Barcelona

    Experience Barcelona’s unique architecture and atmosphere with a local guide as you wander the city’s enchanting streets. This historic city is home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, seven of which were built by Gaudí (he’s kind of a big deal around here). Take in the impressive sites, and understand why Barcelona is the only city to receive a Royal Gold Medal for architecture—the buildings are basically art.

    Today's highlights:

    • Enter Park Güell, one of Antoni Gaudi’s greatest works of modernist art.
    • Check out the progress on the Sagrada Familia cathedral, an unfinished project by Gaudí that began construction in 1882.
    • Go for the gold at Olympic Park, the site of the 1992 Summer Olympics that offers spectacular views of the city.
  • Day 9: Enjoy a Free Day in Barcelona + Optional Montserrat Excursion

    The day is yours to experience Barcelona as you please. Whether that means exploring a new neighborhood, lounging on a beach, or kicking back with some tapas and a pitcher of sangria, you really can’t go wrong.

    Free time suggestions

    Arc de Triomf: Built as the main entrance for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair, the intricate brickwork of this gate now leads to Ciutadella Park.
    Castle Montjuïc: Gaze down on the Mediterranean from this old fortification that once guarded the harbor below and is named for the hill on which it sits.

    Farewell Dinner
    Share some last laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included farewell dinner with the group.

    Montserrat & Cava Cellars (extra cost)

    After a week of big cities, take a break and get a new perspective on Spain from way up in the mountains. Travel a mere hour out of town into the jagged and stunning Montserrat mountain range. Explore the 1,000-year old monastery and meet the monks who call this house in the clouds home. Afterwards, head to cava wine country have your prayers answered with a tour and tasting of the famed sparkling Spanish white wine in a traditional wine cellar. And the best part? You’ll be back in Barcelona with plenty of time for your Farewell Dinner and a night out.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 10: Fly Home

    ¡Adiós, amigos!
    Translation: Goodbye friends. Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?

    This trip was AMAZING!! So many fun surprises like a cocktail workshop & tapas and a fun band coming to sing for us at dinner! Our tour director Nick was so great and helped members of our group with some lost baggage and documentation (at no fault of ef). The trip was so memorable and I will definitely be traveling with EF again!
