Itinerary

Day 1:
Welcome to your Europamundo journey! We hope you enjoy your trip.

Optional Activities: During your trip, it´s likely that your guide will offer you optional activities. If these activities are available in the Europamundo app or through your "My Trip" link, we strongly recommend that, if interested, you book them well in advance to ensure availability. Waiting until the last minute often means missing out on the opportunity to participate (due to lack of tickets, coach seats, etc).

The moment of joining the tour is very important.

Check in advance the point and time of incorporation. In case you have any doubts, contact Europamundo before the day of departure through the emergency telephone number or the chat that you can find on the "My Trip" website created for you.
