Day 1. Arrival. Barcelona

Our driver will meet you right in the airport and bring you to the hotel with a private transfer. 
Since this is an arrival day for everyone, it is best to spend time relaxing and recovering after a long flight, especially for those who fly transatlantic. 
But action starts already in the evening. That's when you meet with your tour leader in the hotel lobby and head for dinner to the nearby restaurant. 
It's our first ''get together'' - mutual introduction, orientation, instructions, questions - during our first and welcoming dinner.
First night  - in Barcelona.
Meals: Dinner.
