Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Please note:

  • Due to the popularity of La Sagrada Familia it is becoming extremely difficult to guarantee entry inside. If by chance the tickets cannot be secured, we will include an inside visit to Casa Batlló, the famous house remodelled by Antoni Gaudí. We will still visit La Sagrada Familia, with a full guided tour outside the structure. Status of the entrance will not be known until the start of our departure and will be advised locally by our Tour Director.
  • Please Note: Due to the nature of the activity on day 13 and Galicia’s unreliable weather, we cannot guarantee where we will be walking on the Camino Trail. Your Tour Director will assess the conditions in the days prior and will discuss the options with the group and choose the most suitable walking option on the day. The walk will not be too strenuous but there will be walking poles available for you to use.

Optional Excursions:

  • Bunnik Tours has a small number of optional excursions that may be available to you on your small group tour. These are based on special-interest activities that don't always appeal to everyone, meaning they're truly optional. To view our optional excursions in Europe click here.
