Your Cost to Go


10 Days/ 9 Nights – May 21 to May 30, 2020

The base price of the trip is approximately $3,190 per person, but is dependent on several variables such as the number of participants on the trip, the exchange rate of euros to dollars and or participant’s willingness to be in a double occupancy hotel room vs. a single room. (This price is based on DOUBLE OCCUPANCY. The SINGLE OCCUPANCY supplement is $800.)

The base price per person of $3,190 includes the following:

  • All accommodations with breakfast
  • fully guided sightseeing (including park and entrance fees) as noted in the itinerary
  • Group airport transfers to/from hotel in the first/last published city as noted in the itinerary
  • local wine and beer, coffee/tea/soft drinks/water at included meals
  • complimentary Internet access (where available on land)
  • hotel taxes.


  • The guidance, knowledge, and experience of your Giving Journeys hosts: George and Lucie Semler,

After the trip you will be billed for  the nine a la carte meals, plus the ferry and two Eusko Tren – Topo train rides, which are not prepaid.  The estimated cost of these lunch and dinner meals, including wine,  is based on the specific restaurant, and average choice of menu items ranging from €30 to €60 per person. Giving Journeys will cover these costs during the trip and will bill you for your share after the trip.

The extra costs to be billed should be around $900 per person.
