We really enjoyed this day trip. We got to see a lot of the countryside around Barcelona. Areas we would never have been able to see if we tried to go it on our own. I highly recommend it!

Comfortable bus and competent driver, Toni, made those switchbacks not so scary!! Gloria, our guide was very knowledgeable and theatrical. The 1st and 2nd villages were the most interesting historically, the 3rd with best scenery.

We enjoyed a day tour with Xavier and Miki to three wonderful medieval towns of Catalunya: Besalú, Rupit, and Tavertet. The visit was a discovery of medieval life and a history lesson. Xavier was very dynamic, interactive, inclusive, and extremely knowledgeable. His English skills were impecable. We truly appreciated his recommendation about what to do and see in Barcelona, even beyond this toutour.more

We had such an amazing time! Our tour guide was great. We learned so much about the surrounding towns and enjoyed eating local cuisine. We had free time at each of the 3 town. Definitely would do again !

Anna, our tour guide was delightful and charming. Loves sharing the culture the language and history of Catalunya. Very fluent in English and we learned so much about architectural and cultural history of Medieval and Modern Catalunya. And knows all the most spectacular VIEWS! TOOK US THRU GORGEOUS COUNTRYSIDE and MOUNTAINS! Loved the winding streets and walled cities. And the FOOD!

Our guide Pablo was very knowledgeable and was able to give us the local history we were looking for in this tour. Our family of 4 was part of a group of 8 and it was the perfect size for exploring the area. We had free time in each village and the scenery on the drive was beautiful.

We enjoyed our tour with Anna. The villages were lovely and there was enough time spent in each one. The bus was comfortable and the ride pleasant. It was a great way to spend a day outside of Barcelona.

It is a very well organized tour and the tour guide is very experienced, attentive and very friendly.
Unfortunately we had a very bad experience in Barcelona because our phone was snapped away from our hands when we are trying to find our way around by using GPS. It is just 200 metre away from our hotel. It is quite astonishing and traumatic.

This tour was not very educational or interesting. While English speaking the tour guide bus driver and couple across spoke Spanish the entire time. Not very informative, least favorite out of many tours taken in Madrid and Barcelona over a 2 week period.
