As per all the city passes, exceptional value.

Great whirlwind tour of the region - fantastic sights! This tour allowed those in the van an intimate look into the countryside as well as how the culture changes so dramatically from one town to the next. Our tour guide Lydia really made the trip special by sharing the history of the region along the way. With that said, although our tour guide was wonderful, the other members on the tour were not. The day is only going to be as you make of it...and sometimes traveling in a small group with others that get on your nerves makes that difficult. However, with that said, I would still highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a low-stress way to see the countryside.
This tour is a great introduction to Barcelona! Our guide, Mireya, was engaging and very knowledable. Each stop on the tour offered a distinct taste of Spanish/Catalan cuisine. The walk through the city is easy and the open air market is a highlight. We made an unscheduled stop at a Turron shop and I have never tasted such delisciousness. We truly enjoyed the tour!

This class was a blast. Learned a lot and met some great people. All the recipes were great and they turned out great. I would recommend this cooking class to everyone even if you aren't a cook. The meal we created was the best we had during our entire stay in Barcelona.

Tour guide was very good, and we had extra time to go visit whatever caught out interest. The tour guide was also very helpful inpointing us to what additional stops/sites might be the most interesting so that we were able to make the most out of the time that we had.
Fabulous tour in September. Our guide, Jordi (sp?) was wonderful--he was energetic, receptive to the requests of the group, knowledgeable, and friendly. The drive through the Pyrenees was beautiful. Although I don't think they should remove it from the tour, I did think that Andorra La Vella was a complete tourist trap (I didn't take advantage of driving up to the mountains instead, which I wish I had in hindsight). However, if all you want is to do some duty-free shopping (at not-so-great prices if you're coming from the US), then you will enjoy it. Still, I was glad to be able to scratch one micro-country off my list! If you do stay in Andorra La Vella for lunch, AVOID the Basque place (I think it was called Lizarran)! Terrible food and awful service. Also, a fun little micro-fact about Andorra La Vella: the (one and only) Post Office closes before you get there (and most places do not sell stamps), so if you're thinking about sending post cards, you'll need to buy a pre-stamped envelope for mailing. If you're mailing to the US, you'll need to go into the tourist help center and buy special envelopes there. Just FYI.
Anyway, it was a lovely, educational trip.
Skipper was great, views were lovely, a wonderful time was had by all!
really good but could have been improved
The scenery was beautiful and the snow was novel. Andorra is known basically for shopping. The deals weren't that great, but the quality is good. The down side was the fan was too packed, we had to rotate the group at every stop to give relief. A larger van would have been far more comfortable.
Great trip--the tour guide was great, and we had some fun people on the tour. My only wish was that my husband and i would have had more time to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site, Mont Louis. We would heartily recommend this tour!
The day trip to both places was worth it. Our tour guide Feliciano (I hope I spelled his name right) was wonderful. First time in Spain and hopefully it won't be the last. Gracias!
We thought the trip was awesome. The museum was amazing and well worth visiting. The cog wheel train was worth the extra cost. Views were great, the choir was heavenly and the church beautiful. Downsides were the crowds in the church, so get there early. Also, 1 1/2 hours is definitely not long enough to see everything and such a shame as the travel time was 2 hours each way. Another hour would have been perfect.
My wife and I enjoyed seeing the three sites. For the most part the tour guide did a great job giving the history of each place. We would have liked to have seen a smaller town in Andorra instead of just the big shopping area. But overall, it was worth the visit.
A good way to see the highlights if you don't have much time. Note this is two half day tours not a one day tour. There is a 2.5 hour break for lunch.
