About this trip

Explore the mind-blowing architectural masterpieces of Antoni Gaudi; savor the famous Spanish food and wines during a lively tapas crawl; and feel the passion of flamenco. This four-night, five-day tour allows you to experience the true richness of  intoxicating Barcelona - famous for its stunning architecture, lively nightlife, world-class cuisine, and  vibrant cultural heritage.


In three days of perfectly planned tours, you will see all the city's most famous attractions: La Segrada Familia, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, El Palau de la Musica, Parc Güell, Casa Amatller and the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site. And we'll visit the nearby mountaintop Monserrat Monastery, and the beautiful coastal city Stiges, the Saint Tropez of Spain.

The Best Time to Visit Barcelona!!

Barcelona enjoys a mild climate throughout the year. High season begins In April, when the weather is generally warm and sunny. Daytime temperatures average 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and it seldom rains. 

The mild climate explains why people in Barcelona spend so much time outside; eating al fresco at open-air bars and restaurants, walking or cycling in the surrounding hillsides, relaxing with friends on the beach. 

What to Expect

This moderately-paced, escorted tour includes a reasonable amount of walking and requires an average level of physical fitness. 

The best things you can bring with you are flexibility, patience, and a sense of humor!

Cost and Payment

This 5-day, 4-night adventure is priced $1,599 per person double occupancy (not including airfare to and from Spain). 

Your space will be secured when we receive a deposit of $250. Upon receipt, your deposit will be nonrefundable.

We have a payment plan which allows the entire cost of the trip to be paid in 12 equal installments of about $115. (You are welcome to make larger payments at less frequent intervals if you choose.)

Cancellation and Refunds

In the event that you need to cancel your trip, these fees will be applied:

• Between 150-101 days before your arrival date, $375.

• Between 100-61 days before your arrival date, 25% of the entire tour price.

Safety

Jordan has been at the top of my destination list since 2018. I finally made it! My heart was happy in Jordan. I had the opportunity to see and do everything on my wish list. Mt. Nebo, Jordan River, floating in the Dead Sea, private guide through Petra, exploring Wadi Rum and feeding camels. I can’t wait to go back and spend more time in Wadi Rum. Thank you Annie and Yasser for making my long awaited dreams come true!

I just got back from the trip of a lifetime. Annie and her contacts in South Africa set up an itinerary to make sure you experience different facets of the country in the time you spend there but best of all they make you feel welcome and make sure you see the animals! The accommodations were great and the people we met were great. This vacation exceeded all my expectations and I may never top this trip!!

I just returned from a once in a lifetime trip to Cairo organized by Bucket List Travel. Annie took care of every detail of planning, and it really showed when I got off the plane and was taken care of from start to finish with the greatest care. Our guide Yasser was kind, professional, knowledgeable, and funny! He went above and beyond to ensure every need was met and we got the most out of each day in Egypt. I always felt safe and loved experiencing local life and culture. I plan to grab my friends and book again with Bucket List Travel!
