Spain, Portugal & Morocco

16 Day Tour from Madrid to Madrid

Vacation overview

On this Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour, experience these three glorious countries with rich histories and distinct cultures. You'll overnight in Madrid, Seville, Granada, and the Costa del Sol in Spain; Coimbra and Lisbon in Portugal; and Rabat, Marrakesh, and Fez in Morocco.

The tour will start in Madrid, where you’ll discover the main sights with a local guide. On the way to Portugal, visit Avila, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its ancient fortified towers and walls, and beautiful Salamanca. The Portuguese pearls you’ll discover on this affordable tour are Coimbra, Obidos, Fatima with its famous Sanctuary, and the capital, Lisbon.

Cross the Strait of Gibraltar to Morocco on the African continent by ferry to step back in time in Rabat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Morocco's capital since 1912. Fez is still Morocco's cultural and spiritual center, and its centerpiece is the Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded in the 9th century and whose palaces, madrasas fondouks, residences, mosques, and fountains date back to the 13th-14th centuries.

Also founded in the 9th century, the red city of Marrakesh remains a tapestry of ramparts, mosques, palaces, gardens, vibrant public squares, and souks (markets). You’ll get to know this fascinating city with a local expert on the included tour. Stop in Casablanca, Morocco's westernmost city and still known for the 1942 classic film with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. You will love the included guided visit to Granada's legendary Alhambra complex, a lavish palace and fortress built by Moorish kings in 889 AD, that you will appreciate even more after having visited Morocco.

These are just some of the many highlights on this comprehensive and affordable Spain, Portugal, and Morocco tour. It's a memorable budget vacation for value-mind travelers.

Itinerary

 

Day 1

ARRIVE IN MADRID, SPAIN. Check into your hotel. Take advantage of any free time to explore lively Madrid with the help of the CosmosGO app. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers. (D)

Day 2

MADRID. Spaniards say the Spanish capital, situated 2,180 feet above sea level, is the nearest thing to Heaven. It’s certainly worth making the most of today by joining the included guided sightseeing tour: a full panoramic drive by way of the Avenida Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Parliament Square, and a picture stop outside the Royal Palace. The optional trip to Toledo is most rewarding, too. The splendid setting of this old walled city above the Tagus was made famous in El Greco’s painting, and even now it’s like a great open-air museum of Spanish history and art. (B)

Day 3

MADRID–ÁVILA–SALAMANCA–COIMBRA, PORTUGAL. Visit ancient fortified Ávila with its many towers, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue to Salamanca and make sure you spend some time wandering around Plaza Mayor, the grandest square in Spain. Cross the frontier to Guarda, the highest town in Portugal. From here, descend to the valleys of the Serra da Estrela to Coimbra.
Today’s Distance: 329 mi/ 530 km (B,D)

Day 4

COIMBRA–FÁTIMA–OBIDOS–LISBON. Enjoy an orientation tour of Coimbra, celebrated for its beauty and ancient university.

Day 6

LISBON–SEVILLE, SPAIN. From the rolling plains of the Alentejo with its woodlands of cork and eucalyptus trees, head south to the brilliant light of Andalusia.

Also visit the Bahia Palace and Majorelle Gardens. (B,D)

Day 11

MARRAKESH–FEZ. Today, travel through the fragrant cedar forests of the Middle Atlas mountains, where a number of peaks soar above 13,000 feet in elevation.
