El Clásico. The big one. Barça’s Catalan nationalism v Real’s Spanish identity. The 248th match up in La Liga between the titans of Spanish football. The wizened tactical nous of Ancelotti against the new ideas of Xavi. The Bernabéu will prove a hostile place for the Catalans as their youthful squad faces up to Real’s legends with Benzema up front and Courtois guarding the net. Can you feel the noise, it’s the Madridistas’ roar!


It’s the royal club of Spain, the second highest-earning club in the world, and one of the most widely supported. It’s never been relegated from La Liga, with a trophy cabinet almost as big as the 81,000 capacity Estadio Santiago Bernebéu including the most Champions Leagues ever. From di Stefano to Zidane, Real Madrid is the football of the Gods!

Hala Madrid!”

Delicious! Madrileño cuisine is way more than tapas and paella. From traditional taverns to five-star hot-spots and everything in between.

We strongly advise that you review official travel requirements for your country of departure and arrival before confirming any booking, as requirements for travel visas do vary based on your nationality and final destination.

Casual games are played most nights of the week. If you would like to join as a ‘ringer’ please let your Trip Captain know.

Bring your phone, lucky club scarf, strong stadium singing voice, and a profound desire to get under the skin of one of the most passionate sporting cities on earth.

We’ve designed our trips to maximize your time in the city and our days are pretty action packed. All activities are optional however and you’re welcome to dip in and out of the experiences as you wish. We’ve planned the itineraries to ensure you have some downtime on most afternoons.

Heroes Rise and
the Bernabéu Sings
We are Real!

“2002. The Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen. Two Madrid players, two legends, Raúl and Zidane, two goals, giving us our ninth European cup, and bringing us so close to La Décima we could almost taste it. Raúl’s goal, a curious mixture of perceptive cunning and cheerful scruffiness, followed by Zidane’s outrageous winning volley. Perfection.”

Angela, Real Madrid fan

voy a querer”
