DAY 1 London, England to Paris, France

We’re hopping over the English Channel to brush up on our bonjours. Topdeckers, meet Paris! Tonight you’ll treat the tastebuds with your first French meal at our included dinner. Then it’s off on a driving tour to see the City of Light at its best and play landmark bingo with the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe.


DAY 2 Paris

A free day in Paris to get involved with pastries, paintings and the Centre Pompidou. Bike along the Seine on an optional tour or just flâner (stroll) around and soak up the atmosphere. Check out L'eclair de Genie in le Marais (don't ask questions), get your obligatory Eiffel Tower #selfie then explore the world's largest grave at the Catacombs. Tonight, experience the razzle dazzle of a cabaret show or hop on a boat down the river (both optional) to crank the romance dial to 11. Ooh là là!


DAY 3 Paris to Bordeaux

Today we roll on to the port city of Bordeaux, where half the city is UNESCO World Heritage listed and vineyards reign supreme.


DAY 4 Bordeaux

Wander the picturesque streets on your free day here, with special stops at Cathédrale St-André, Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Jardin Public. After, embrace France's finest #cafélife and try some amazing wine. Obvs. You're in the world's most renowned wine-growing region after all.


DAY 5 Bordeaux to Bilbao, Spain

First stop: a visit to the family-run estate, Château du Taillan, one of the most attractive vineyards in the Gironde. Here, explore the unique underground cellars, which are now listed as a French National Heritage Site. Next up is Bilbao - famed for the titanium curved Guggenheim Museum that boasts an out-of-this-world collection of contemporary art.


DAY 6 Bilbao to Madrid

Spain’s capital and a city known for its artistic pedigree, culinary wonders and vibin’ nightlife, Madrid will offer just what you’re looking for. Soak up the sights as we swing by El Retiro park, the Gran Vía and the Plaza de España on a driving tour. So. Much. To. See. Take in the beauty of the city’s hidden gardens, ancient buildings, tucked-away cafés and gorgeous markets before rolling into bed tonight.


DAY 7 Madrid

Morning, Madrid! Today’s your last day, so make sure you tick off all the bits you’ve missed. Check out the Royal Palace, get cultured at the Prado Museum or just kick back in the botanical gardens before we go our separate ways.
