Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

    Although I enjoyed the itinerary, we often had issues with our tour director. He was nice sometimes, but other times “snapped” at guests and argued with them. He repeatedly left us with a local guide and twice people were left behind and had to find their way back to the hotel on their own. He spoke to me very disrespectfully twice, and when he left us with a local guide she left 3 of us behind (two of us were helping an elderly woman on our tour and she couldn’t walk very well). He blamed it on us. Can you imagine what would have happened had we not helped her? Also, we started to make an email list at the end of the trip and when he saw us doing that he said not to worry, that he would send everyone an email list after the trip. One wee, no list, two weeks, nothing. He didn’t give us his email address so I texted him. He said he would send it. A week later I got an email from him saying that it was a new company policy that, even with our written permission, he was not allowed to share them. I have pictures of other people that they asked me to take, and no way to contact them. Globus reps said they had no such policy. Sooo frustrating!

Stroll along the beach in the morning, discover UNESCO sites, experience the country fall into a nationwide nap every afternoon called a “siesta”, and sit back in your patio chair as you watch people throughout their day. 

    How Much Physical Activity will be on a Senior Tour to Spain?

     Some tours require extensive walking, often up to 1-3 hours at a steady pace. Cobblestone streets are common in spain so the surface won’t always be even.

It costs around 6 euros and will save you 20-40% on most train tickets. You can purchase this ticket at any train station ticket window or at most travel agencies. 

    What to Wear

    1. Sturdy walking shoes - There is a lot of walking in Spain. 

    2. Power adapter - You will need Type C or F.

    3. Layers - The weather can vary depending on the region and time of day. Even if it’s really hot during the afternoon, the evenings may not promise to stay the same. 

    Food

    Tapas are typically the smaller dishes you’ll see in restaurants, but if you find yourself a little more hungry and want something more substantial, this is where raciones will come to the rescue. Raciones are larger plates of food, so if you are with a group and looking for a filling meal, remember to select items listed under this word. And like tapas, raciones are meant for sharing.

    How to Eat in Spain Like a Local

    In your free time, you might want to consider trying out smaller restaurants or bars that you weren’t able to visit with a tour group. A good tip to finding where locals eat is to find a bar in the back streets, and stand at the bar while watching the waitress put together different items behind the glass stand. If you have the option of choosing a bar seat - go for it! You’ll always get the best prices, quick service, and maybe even a little Spanish practice. It’s also good to note that prices will vary on location - so if you’re in a restaurant on a quieter street, it’s bound to be cheaper than one on the main road.

Next is the Ribera del Duero region. Tourists instantly fall in love with the region where this variety is grown. The Ribera Del Duero’s wine is beautifully aged, complex, and acidic yet well-balanced with fruitiness. Its smoky profile is the perfect pair for meat off the grill or saucy pastas.

    Handicap and Wheelchair Accessibility in Airports in Spain

    Airports in Spain are not the most well-equipped for seniors. For starters, shuttle carts are uncommon in Spanish airports and airport terminals are very spaced out. So make sure you give yourself extra time to walk. 

    There is wheelchair service available, but don’t depend on it being available a minute’s notice because there is usually more demand than staff availability. It’s best to make sure that you are confirmed for wheelchair service when booking your flight. If you are in need of wheelchair assistance, you’ll need to wait for everyone else on the plane to exit first, which leads to the next point...

    If you are changing planes in any of the major Spanish airports like Madrid or Barcelona, give yourself a lot of time to do so. Anything under two hours may not be enough time to transfer flights. Not to mention the additional 20-30 minutes you’ll need to wait if you need the wheelchair service.

    The check-in counters tend to have very little seating, but if you get to the security section you will find yellow seats that are designated for the handicapped.
