Extra Activities example (for this trip)
Day 4 – Toledo
This morning you will take an early bus from Madrid to the ancient capital and UNESCO World Heritage site of Toledo (1 hour). A guide meets you and shows you around the city and will narrate the history of this fascinating town. After lunch and some time to stroll around you will return to Madrid where dinner will be a Spanish style feast at Zerain.
Day 6 – Madrid ~ Barcelona
You depart Madrid early on this morning for the 3-hour train ride to Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast. The train is extremely safe and comfortable, traveling at speeds of almost 200 miles per hour. You’ll arrive at the hotel around noon and have some free time for lunch. In the afternoon, a local guide meets you for a tour of the Gothic quarters of the city. Dinner is a traditional Catalonian feast prepared in a popular restaurant.
Day 8 – Sagrada Famila, Barcelona ~ Madrid
You will visit the Sagrada Familia Church, a building that has been under construction since 1882 and truly stands as a one of a kind monument. You will also visit an apartment building that Gaudi himself designed before returning to the hotel to pack up and take the train back to Madrid.
Your Tour Guide for this and all other tours below is Daniel Moore (son of Scott Moore) both popular pros on the tournament circuit. Depending on tour numbers, Daniel is often accompanied by his father Scott to not only assist but to coach also.

It was so fun to learn new drills, games etc and to approach the game with more thinking and anticipation. It was so fun to play today with other folks who had taken the clinics... Cross court dinking warm-up really set the tone for me today.
Thank you so much for your humor, professionalism, easy-going, relaxed teaching style.
