Day two includes some very messy chocolate making before it gets wet and wild with scuba diving at the world's deepest swimming pool.

Later, one tourist's dream comes true with a zip wire ride. But two other tourists' dreams are shattered at the vote.

Episode 7 - Chambery
Brendan is forced into hospital, leaving one of the tourists to take charge of the group. There's mayhem at a dairy farm. And it's up, up and away in some microlites. Then back to earth with a bump at the vote.

There's a double dose of new arrivals as two new couples join the group to enjoy classic Italian fun at a pizza-making class and then a visit to the Vespa museum.

Two new tourists board the coach in Sardinia. Brendan lets the group loose at a market after an Italian lesson, then they make waves sea kayaking, but who will be in deep water at the vote?
Episode 12 - Sardinia
A tree-top assault course leaves one tourist paralysed with fear, a Sardinian delicacy causes an upset stomach, and there's more upset at the vote.
Episode 13 - Nice
The tourists have a tennis lesson in Nice and play with dolphins at a marine park. But with more waterworks at the vote will someone be waving goodbye to the coach?
Episode 14 - Cannes
The group make their mark in Cannes with a sea-front mime class, Brendan judges a ballroom dance lesson and the tourists learn there's no such thing as a safe vote.
Episode 15 - Aix-en-Provence
The tourists are on top of the world in Aix-en-Provence after a hot air balloon ride. Brendan proves he's an old master at a painting class, and the vote leaves one couple seething.
Episode 16 - Montpellier
Cupid draws back his bow at a violin lesson, but can the tourists make sweet music? And things get messy as Brendan takes the group for a spin on a pottery wheel.

Brendan dishes out a slimy facial at a snail farm, and one tourist is a hero at a dramatic banana boating ride. There's a surprise departure and things get tense at the vote.

Brendan skips down memory lane at the resort where his international tour guiding began. A volleyball game ends uncomfortably for one tourist, and someone storms out of the vote in a huff.

The group are overwhelmed by the majesty of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia before they make a splash at an iconic Olympic venue. And at the vote, will two more tourists' trips come to an end?

After a messy morning gutting fish for lunch, the undesirable sights continue when Brendan takes the group for a pole dancing class. At the vote, one couple is given both barrels.

Episode 22 - Benidorm

Episode 23 - Alicante
A tense group arrive in Alicante, so Brendan calms proceedings with a yoga class. A synchronised swimming lesson provides an eyeful, in more ways than one, and at the vote an indecisive tourist is left in no doubt as to the group's feelings.

Another new couple climb aboard and hit the bullseye at an archery lesson in Almeria, much to the others' dismay. The group also try their hand at traditional rug-making.

The group are left surprised by the dancers at a flamenco class, before the alarm is raised after a frightening turn of events at the Alhambra Palace. Brendan's busy day gets no quieter at a feisty vote.

As the remaining tourists prepare to make the long journey home, Brendan looks back on his favourite and funniest moments of their six-week trip round Europe.
