Orientation Tour of Tarragona

Depending upon their times of arrival and departure, many groups prefer to arrange an orientation tour of Tarragona for their arrival day. Besides assisting with orientation, the tour covers some of the key factors affecting the development, growth and recent changes in the city.

The tour lasts about 2-3 hours and will be followed by a hotel transfer. Assistance will be given at hotel check-in when passports, return tickets etc. should be accounted for and safely secured in the hotel safe. The hotel will require a list of the names, passport numbers and room numbers of all people within the group. A safety briefing is normally provided upon arrival, followed by a short introduction to the course.

The evening meal is normally taken at 20.00 hours. A cold buffet can be provided for arrivals after 22.00.
