Spanish spree or Amsterdam to Barcelona

23 Feb 2013 Jen1226 asked


Hey everyone, I'm trying to decide between the Spanish Spree or Amsterdam to Barcelona, wish I had the time to do both. Any recommendations? Anyone going on either at end of July/ early August?

    Hmm I could also do the trip in early may, I guess I’m going to have to continue to think about which One and when to book. Are either of you planning in going early or extending the trip? Where are all of you from? im coming from Boston in the US. This is going to be my third Contiki, I went to Italy on one and did the Greek island hopping, so far had amazing experiences and met really cool people

    I live in Arizona and my cousin lives in Cali, so leaving out of LAX. This is our 2nd contiki, we did simply italy years ago and had a great time as well. We are actually extending our stay by 2 days and taking a flight to Madrid. Wish we could stay longer and see more but cant so an extra area will have to do.

    Ya come May 2! I’m flying in from Ottawa, Canada :) I’m hoping to book a flight today. I won’t be extending my stay since its my first time. Looks like I’d be arriving early morning may 3 though with the whole day before the tour starts!

    Yes we arrive at 9:05 AM on May 3rd. Our plans are hoping to drop our luggage at the hotel. We have got tickets online to see the Anne Frank Museum for 12:40 PM, then to the Heineken Factory, and hopefully soak up some culture before we meet the group.
