Itinerary

Day 1:
Welcome to Europamundo! Transfer to the hotel and free time. You will be provided with the information required for the beginning of the trip in the afternoon; otherwise, the information will appear on the information panels at the hotel reception area.

IMPORTANT:-Remember that hotels check-in time is usually at 14:00 hrs. If you require more hours of room availability, consider booking an additional night at the beginning of your trip.


- IF YOU REQUESTED ADDITIONAL NIGHTS upon arrival at the hotel, you would have your room booked, but your trip guide would normally contact you at the beginning of the included activities. At the reception you can also find an informative sign, indicating the telephone number and hours of assistance of our staff. YOUR TIME THEREFORE BEFORE THIS MOMENT IS FREE. The hotel staff can help you with all the information you need.

-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).
