Optional Excursions

Spain

Montserrat - 4hrs - Euro €50pp 
Montserrat is a mountain top monastery in Catalonia, Spain. This incredible rocky formation is a sacred place for the Catalan people. Atop the mountain you can enter the church to see the famous St. Moreneta (Black Madonna) and with any luck you can also hear the singing of the boys choir (weekdays around 13.00 and Sundays around 12.00, the boys choir does not sing every day as they frequently travel and perform in other churches).

Flamenco Show - 'El Palacio Andaluz'  - 1hr 30mins  - Euro €39pp
(no minimum number required)
Just a short 10-15 minute walk from the hotel is El Patio Andaluz, where passionate Flamenco dancers (known as bailaores or bailaoras) perform group and solo dances. The Flamenco style of dance originated in the Andalusian region and is expressed by the performer with intricate hand, arm and body movements whilst clapping their hands and rhythmically stomping their feet.  The dances are usually accompanied by guitars and as the song builds so does the tempo and volume.  Enjoy a traditional Flamenco show accompanied with one drink (beer, wine or soft drink) on arrival.

Vicki Lloyd - June 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Above & Beyond our Expectations 5
We loved that we got to see not only the go-to places of Spain, Morocco & Portugal but those little gems that were off the beaten track is what made this tour! We didn't ever feel like we were being herded (as we saw with larger groups). The knowledge and passion of our guides Cristina (Spain & Portugal) & Aziz (Morocco) was infectious. It was a feast of information and this, coupled with our own free time each day was a perfect blend. It was soo good it wouldn't be fair to highlight any one thing! Our hearts were over-flowing ... Thanks Bunnik Louise Kimber - August 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco I loved the introduction to countries I was unfamiliar with 4
As it was all new to me I loved it all but I particularly liked Barcelona. I thought it a beautiful city with polite and friendly people. Restaurants, cafe's and bars in all three countries were most pleasurable with a good standard of cuisine. Our fellow travellers were a pleasure to be with. Margo Anderson - May 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved discovering what each country we visited had to offer 5
The fondest memory was getting to know the other 13 members of our touring group, we all got on very well, which made the trip very successful. Highlights included Barcelona (Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's buildings & Guell Park and Las Ramblas), with Valencia, Granada, Seville and Madrid all being very different from each other and equally fascinating. The greenness of Morocco's agriculture was a huge surprise, with Fez and Marrakesh being the standout cities. Portugal was surprisingly hilly and very picturesque. Porto and Lisbon were magnificent, as were the smaller towns Coimbra, Cascais, Sintra, Obidos and Aveiro (pity about the rain). All in all, there were too many highlights to mention them all, and I've tried to keep it as brief as I can. Helen Goldsack - June 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Experiencing the ancient cities, culture, people and foods of Europe 4
Highlights: In Barcelona seeing Gaudis inspiration and influence. In Granada the Alhambra was spectacular and we had an excellent local guide there Morocco was a different visual and cultural experience especially the medinas of Fez and Marrakech. Seville and Madrid - loved the wine food and music. Portugal was relaxed friendly people and great seafood and shopping. Pamela Blake - May 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Our guide was fantastic 5
Our guide, David, was fantastic and his enthusiasm and love of Spain added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. My highlights would have to the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain and the beauty of the Douro River Valley in Portugal. Sue Holmes - May 2017
Spain, Portugal & Morocco I loved visiting amazing and beautiful places with a great group. 4
The tours with a local guides were invaluable, and really set us up well for when we were let lose on the town. Starting with the Sagrada Familia set the expectations very high, but I was not disappointed. Our tour director was fantastic, funny, full of knowledge, helpful and caring. Perfect! The trips to the smaller towns along the way really added so much to the trip. Favourite day was walking up through the winding streets in Granada to the view point of the Alhambra, grabbing a sangria and watching the sun go down. Breathtaking. Valencia was also a great town, which definitely deserves more time to take in the diversity of the new City of Science and the older parts of the city. Is definitely on the list to go back to. Gillian McHarg - September 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Attention to detail, friendly travelling companions, amazing guides 4
Loved it all. Favourite places were Coimbra, Valencia and Porto. Ancient buildings, beautiful architecture, plazas, monuments. Amazing vistas, too much wine. Antonio, our guide who told us were his family on the trip and then proceeded to make us feel just so. Charming, funny, informative and caring. Di Cooper - September 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Patrick (Guide) was outstanding 5
He had to deal with several issues on our tour and he acted very professionally and discreetly. We saw a lot, sometimes perhaps too much, though it was great to have a lot of free time. The buses were extremely comfortable and spacious. The drivers were first class and helpful. Loved variety of itinerary, cultures, comfortable bus. Gail White - August 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved the attention and helpfulness of our tour guide. 5
We had such a great time on our trip. Our main guide Antonio was fantastic and very informed about the country we were in at the time. He always had a "surprise" and we were never disappointed. Zahir was our Moroccan guide and he was wonderful as well. He looked after us so well and took us to special places where we could see the culture of the country in reality. Overall the trip was fantastic and I wouldn't change anything about it. We made some great friends and had great experiences. Lyndall Biegel - September 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco I loved the group, tour guides, itinerary and felt safe. 4
I loved Spain. The Sagrada Familia was magnificent. My husband and I enjoyed Seville and Granada. We celebrated our anniversary in a beautiful hotel in Marrakech, Adina Spa. Going to the old medina in Fez and feeling safe under the watchful eye of Karim.... The Flamenco show in Seville was wonderful. Reyna Hudgell - August 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Great itinerary, small group, great guides and hassle free. 4
The whole tour was a highlight! Jaroslav Cerny - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Small group size, excellent guides, decent hotels, interesting itinerary. 5
Morocco was quite a surprise (in a nice way), we loved our first experiences of Spain and our visit to Portugal refreshed happy memories of a previous visit. Lucy was great, and we appreciated the Muslim perspective from Aziz during the Moroccan leg. Chris Taylor - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Everything was beautifully organised for us! 5
The entire package was perfect! We loved our tour guides and our visits to everything we saw! The group of 17 all bonded! Lynn Taylor - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Small group, free time, saw major cities and sites, educational 5
Highlight was Morocco, especially Fez Medina, History, Gothic Cathedrals, Roman Ruins, Moorish Palaces, Museums, countryside especially Douro Valley, exploring towns during free times, detailed information from Guides. Bill Shannon - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco I loved the small group advantage and the professionalism of our TD. 4
Spain was truly amazing, loved the vibe of each city and Ricardo's passion for his home country of Portugal, enabled us to get a 'locals' perspective on cultural, political history and geographic points of interest. During the tour I was informed of my mothers death and Ricardo was so caring & supportive towards myself and my husband.. at the time we were also on our honeymoon, so he really went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our tour. Pamela Perry - June 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Experienced Spain, Portugal and Morocco with fantastic guides and pace 5
All three countries were explored in depth getting off the usual route. The tour was at a not too rushed pace with plenty of time to explore solo. Our marvellous guides Patrick and Karim were so knowledgeable and caring it was a privilege to be in their care. They are great ambassadores for their countries and Bunniks. David Miller - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Fabulous to have a big bus for 18 people 5
Our tour guide provided us with great insight into the history that created the Spain and Portugal of today. She provided us with city walkabouts when we entered a new city and explained our positioning on the city maps. Most of all she had a great sense of humour and enjoyed being with us. Joanne Roughan - May 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Amazing places, friendly people, lots of knowledge, delicious food. 4
Amazing countryside in Spain. Seeing Morocco for the first time and exploring Portugal. Travelling with a great bunch of people and meeting friendly locals wherever we went. Sharon Turnbull - March 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Excellent and efficient organisation. Superior guide standard. 4
Highlights were the in-depth knowledge of guides and their pride in their country and its history. Also, ability of guides to lead us into places we would not find independently. Sue Hays - March 2016
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Spain blew my mind - great history, architecture, lifestyle 5
I loved that most stops were for 2 nights - you didn't feel rushed and like you were packing your suitcase every morning. The tour had a great blend of tours and then free time to explore on your own. The tour guides (both local and tour directors) were knowledgeable, friendly and fitted in well. Both our Tour Directors were fabulous - Antonio (Spain & Portugal) and Aziz (Morocco). I had the time of my life and can't wait to go back! Fiona Barden - October 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Every country was shown to us in detail 5
Highlights were the beautiful castles, squares and gardens in Spain and Portugal, the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona, the old university library in Coimbra and the wonderful food and cakes in Portugal. Yelena Gul - August 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Small group, flexible itinerary and a very good guide 5
The tour organisation was excellent. Being a small group, the guide had the time to be more than a guide, rather part of the experience. The hotel locations, being central to the areas of interest, were great, particularly in Spain and Portugal. All our fellow travellers mixed well. Jock Dean - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved the diversity, the pace & the group size 5
Fez is amazing. The Roman ruins at Volubilis were outstanding. La Alhambra in Spain is out of this world as was the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona! Portugal was a total delight & so easy! Sue Neil - June 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Terrific fun, well organised and a great summer holiday 4
We loved the whole trip from the organised pick up at airport in Barcelona and then back again for our flight home. Our main tour guides Patrick and Aziz were terrific and in Portugal and Spain, the individual city guides were also great. All the guides were very knowledgeable about their cities and country and we learnt a lot about each of the country's history and current political and social climate. We never felt as though we were being herded to our next destination. Our tour only had 11 on board so it was very much a small group tour. We all got along very well and no doubt we will stay in touch with many from the group. We thought the start time each day was appropriate being around 8-8.30 am. In each new city, we liked that our tour guide Patrick would give us a 30-40 minute walking orientation to new places and from there we could choose which parts of the city we wanted to explore further in our free time. He also pointed out where the supermarkets and ATMs were in case money and supplies were needed and how to use the Metro/buy tickets top up tickets etc. Whilst the main cities we toured had similarities e.g. cathedrals, narrow paved streets and laneways, mosaic/stucco, traffic!, each was quite different in terms of the pace of the life and even the food. We liked the fact that not all meals were included and we could pick and choose our own price range and type of meal we wanted to eat. The hotels were all very comfortable and the check in/out very easy. Each country delivered a contrast and placing Morocco in the middle of Spain and Portugal was a great idea. Aziz our guide in Morocco was very helpful and even though it was Ramadan while we were there and very hot, he navigated our visits through the hustle and bustle with ease and patience. Patrick our guide in Spain and Portugal, was very relaxed. He kept us in the loop about the plan for the following day and organised additional side trip s for those who wanted it without fuss. He would also recommend a few different places to eat to enjoy the beer and tapas etc. On days when we were in the bus a bit, there was always a small interesting town to break up the monotony of the bus with towns like Ronda in Spain and Obidos in Portugal, highlights. For a great relaxing, hassle free holiday, we would recommend Bunnik's and would be more than happy to travel with them again. Deb Petty - June 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco 3 countries in 3 weeks so good loved everything 5
Patrick was wonderful at giving information as to where best to eat, what to eat, extra places of interest in our spare time, help with atms, language etc. Having guide get all the tickets to places was fantastic. Covering 3 countries in 3 weeks is no mean feat, but what was selected was wonderful, giving such a broad coverage in such a small amount of time, enough free time. FANTASTIC Ann Baillie - April 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Amazingly beautiful sites & unique culture. 4
I have so many fond memories. It was very easy touring with a small crowd of 20 & feeling safe with great drivers & helpful & informative tour guides. I loved everything about our tour & looking forward to another. Highlights are too many to mention. Many thanks Bunniks. Ludi Tokareff - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved discovering new sights, sounds and smells 5
Highlights; Barcelona, Barcelona, the Spanish countryside, the contrast between Spain/Portugal and Morroco. The Gaudi Cathedral, Casablanca Mosque and Alhambra. John Joy Dawson - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Excellent countries, with a fantastic small group of people 5
Spain was breathtaking, with many more stops catered for than we expected (& all appreciated !), and Morocco was a feast for our senses (with Fez seeming to transport us back to medieval times). Travelling between continents by ferry was great fun, the opulence in Seville was staggering, and our free day in Porto was terrific, being able to stroll those streets at our leisure. The size limit of 20 on the tour was a big asset, in reducing loading & unloading the bus, as well as making for much more comfortable travel with the available space. In all, we could not have imagined how much we would enjoy this holiday, which had us coming back looking through your brochure to plan our next trip. Looking forward to contacting you next year for another 'magic carpet ride'. Ian Baldock - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved Tour Guide, Local Guides, Hotels, Countries, Itinerary, Group, 5
Our highlights include the excellent guides and the bus size for the group. Countries were as we had hoped and the hotel accommodation was excellent. Don Presley - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Super!!! 4
From the first moment it was great. David Gillison, the tour guide was fantastic with his intimate knowledge of life on the Iberian Peninsula, actually living there for the past 10 years, as well as , being an Aussie, knowing our expectations. The bus-drivers were exceptional as well. Thoroughly recommend this combination. Rickie Hoogenboom - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Great combination of organized activities/personal free time to explore 4
Marrakesh markets - amazing by day, spectacular at night so much colour, noise, activity and life. Single traveller and always had a great room. Maureen Sullivan - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Tour guide Riccardo was excellent,small group,places visited & accomodation 5
Highlights; friends made, many lasting memories of wonderful places visited. Richard Wells - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Highlights; Gaudi's work, Alhambra, Madrid, Portugal 4
Loved the varied things that we saw and the amount learned. Guides; very knowledgeable, helpful, caring. Transport; Excellent - it was great to have so much room. Dita Hunt - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Organisation was great and a very good group 5
Pretty hard to choose, but Portugal was our favourite. Very friendly people even although their economy is poor. Seeing every square inch of land growing something. So much solar & windmill power. Seeing constructions that were thousands of years old. Granada was our favourite town in Spain. Lucy was an excellent head guide and the other local guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Ben did a great job in Morocco. Very comfortable buses. All drivers were fantastic, maneuvering large buses in very narrow streets. Gloria Wiegmann - May 2015
Spain, Portugal & Morocco I absolutely loved everything about Portugal 4
The sight seeing was truly amazing. So much to see. Hard to take it all in. Oporto, Gaudi buildings, Rondo, Alhambra Palace, Mosque in Casablanca, The Prado Museum There are so many countries on our bucket list. But India is a definite and we intend to do that with Bunniks. Marg Greenwood - October 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved having a taste of three different and interesting countries. 5
Portugal was lovely - that was unexpected as I had thought it would be more like Spain. Morocco was fascinating. Valencia, Seville, Salamanca, Toledo, Avila and Segovia were all most enjoyable and we could have had more time in each one. The welcome and farewell dinners were good. Antonio was a key factor in the success of the tour. Mary Harris - September 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Magnificent itinerary, guide & travelling companions 4
I have just returned from this tour & have not stopped raving about it. Loved all the destinations; everywhere was so different. Patrick, our guide, was truly wonderful & is a real gem. Whatever you pay him, increase it! This was my 2nd Bunnik tour, having done Sth America with you last year & will now be a dedicated customer. Both tours were superb! Thank you for 2 experiences of a lifetime. Leanne McCauley - September 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Patrick (our main guide) was excellent, often going above and beyond 4
Highlights would include seeing the architecture by Gaudi in Barcelona, the beautiful cities of Granada and Oporto and the many amazing "old" towns throughout Spain & Portugal whilst getting lost in their narrow winding lanes and tasting the food and wine. Visiting the medinas of Morocco and gaining an understanding of their culture. Susan Muller - September 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco The buildings in Portugal are an artist's dream. 5
The Alhambra Palace was everything and more than expected. I adored Valencia and want to move there to live. The shops in the Medina in Fez where far more time is needed to absorb the local culture. The many examples of Islamic architecture were wonderful. The tiled Portuguese houses which I will spend the next year trying to recreate in my paintings. Overall the tour is excellent and met my expectations especially in Spain and Portugal. Anne Newman - September 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco We liked everything about the experience 4
The atmosphere of the Marrakesh main square, Djemaa el-Fna at night. - one of the most amazing sites full of theatre, food and noise. - words don't do it justice. Sue & Rick Sautter - May 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco The 'wow' factor of new and unknown highlights. 4
Seville, ovely city. Ronda, spectacular scenery and location. Morocco, so different to our way of life. Porto, grilled sardines cooked in the street. An excellent trip with a new highlight every day. Graeme Bertram - May 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco The exotic locations and ease of travel. 4
Emily made the whole process very easy. Loved visiting Porto in Portugal, it was my favourite location. Loved the scenery, the town, the old trams and the famous bookshop. We had a great time and if we do go on an organised tour again it will definitely be with Bunniks. Christine Edgar - April 2014
Spain, Portugal & Morocco There were many little pleasures on the tour. 4
My fondest memories are of looking out of the bus windows, as our guides spoke to us of the countryside we were travelling through, watching the local people going about their lives, many of them so different from ours, and realising that our needs, aspirations, and values are very similar, and that the opportunity to meet and interact with them helps us to appreciate our common interests and ambitions. Elaine Cockburn - September 2013
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Loved all the things we did in Portugal 4
Loved all the things we did in Portugal which was a lovely and easy country to travel around. Also liked the Volubilis and the Hassan II Mosque.In Spain loved the inside of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelonaand in Granada the Alhambra Palace. Maree McTaggart - September 2013
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Would recommend Bunniks in a heartbeat 5
Definite highlights included the view of Al Hambre in the moonlight to the sounds of Spanish guitar, finding little tapas bars hidden in downstairs caves, Gaudi's amazing art, walking the cobbled streets of the numerous medieval cities, sipping chocolate cups of delicious port, and savouring creamy Portuguese tarts, listening to the babble of chatter in the Fez markets, tasting the exotic Moroccan flavours cooked in tangines, feeling the passion and pride of the flamenco dancers, being in vibrant Seville during the San Antonio Festival, the Alcazar, but most of all, sitting in the open air bars watching the locals and enjoying the pure culture of the people Patricia O'Brian - May 2013
Spain, Portugal & Morocco Exceptional 5
The whole tour was the highlight. (Cathedrals, mosques, local people, variety of food, countryside, medinas, Volubilis, Alhambra palace, Fado and Flamenco performances) Also, the optional tour in Oporto 'Duoro Valley wine Tasting with Lunch' was very good and should continue to be offered. Great scenery and excellent food and wine. Graham Bament - April 2013
