“Thanks again Megan for a wonderful holiday with great people and a fabulous tour leader!” – Graeme and Annette
“Thank you Megan for converting me to the world of small group touring, it was like travelling with a group of friends and family. Whether you are a couple, friends or solo traveller, I would highly recommend travelling with ‘Blogger at Large’. Bring on the next tour!” – Kerrie
Three separately sold tours designed for you to join one, two or all of them as we realise many people have visited Europe before and want to see places they haven’t been to.
The three itineraries have been designed by myself and Weka Travel to create these wonderful boutique holidays for a maximum of 12 guests per tour. There are a couple of days between each for free time to plan your own holiday and incorporate the tour that most interests you.
Spain Tour June 2 – 12, 2020
We will meet in Barcelona and be transferred from the airport to our boutique hotel for two nights and begin as we mean to go on with welcome drinks and dinner!

Free time this afternoon and evening to enjoy local restaurants or take in an evening Flamenco show with dinner.
Day 3: Granada
Today we take a short flight to Granada, rather than spend the day on a train, so we can enjoy more time in this amazing city.
Granada, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, has passed through many hands from ancient Rome, Visigoths to the Moors before falling to the Spanish Roman Catholic Monarchs in the 15th Century. It is a melting pot of cultures and the cuisine, architecture and people make this a must see.

Day 7: Ronda
This morning we take a private bus through the countryside to the town of Ronda which is charming beyond belief and famous for its dramatic escarpments and views and the deep gorge that cuts through the centre of the town.

Day 11: Depart

“We just loved our tour to New Orleans and Memphis. It was so wonderful to have all the best pieces organised for us to experience. Every day was exciting and interesting it was a really well balanced tour, giving us personal time so that we could do our own thing or have time out if we so desired. Group time always felt like an adventure and a holiday, to be so well looked after and to have so much fun with like minded people was fantastic. We are keen for another tour with Megan one day soon!”
–Rose and Andrew
