Las Rocas, Irizar Tour

Tuesday 5 May 2020

 

We would like you to join us for a memorable trip to Las Rocas in the port city of Santander.  You will be one of the first to travel on our new Irizar i6S Elite Holiday Coach that we have purchased for the 2020 holiday season.  The highlight of this holiday is to spend a day at Irizar’s factory which specialises in building deluxe coaches and where you will see Irizar i6S on the production line. You will be able to ask questions and look deep into the manufacturing of our deluxe coaches before they are ready to be transported to the UK and put into service. After a very special day at this factory, we then continue to enjoy the rest of the holiday. We continue the holiday and travel to San Sebastián, known as the ‘Queen of Resorts’ and home to one of Europe's best beaches, enjoy a walking tour along with some free time to explore the traditional Spanish culture introduce us to the city's famous tapas bars. Spend time visiting a traditional Bodega in Haro and the worlds famous vineyards, before tasting the local produce. We end with some free time in Castro Urdiales exploring the traditional town and historic harbour that offers plenty to see and do.
