  • 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.

    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.

  • Episode 18 - L'Estartit

    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.

  • Episode 19 - Barcelona

    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?

  • 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.

  • Episode 24 - Almeria

    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.

  • Episode 28 - Malaga

    Bad behaviour on the golf course leaves Brendan red-faced, and there are some truly remarkable results when the tourists paint each other at a Picasso art class. It's the last chance for a red card at the vote so who will make it to the final day?
