Our tour guide was Fabien who was the best guide we had ever had so far! He was highly knowledgeable, multilingual as well as enthusiastic. The van ride was very pleasant. Despite driving for hours, we all had a conversation in the van and enjoyed ourselves so much that we could not really pay attention to time. Driving on the Pyrenees was a dream come true for us. The landscape was incredible, there was snow everywhere, cyclists in the middle of the tiny countryside streets as well as ski slopes where you could see the all the mighty skiers doing their best. The visit to Mont Louis (the fort) was very interesting. We enjoyed the original French croissant and we also had the chance to taste a traditional pastry with sugar on top which was a real treat! The village is literally next to the Pyrenees. Next, we headed to Andorra and to its capital Andorra la Vella. Now that's a strange city! Situated in the middle of nowhere, hidden at the bottom of the Pyrenees, it is like a secret waiting to be unfolded. Even though Andorra la Vella is famous for its duty free shops, still, products such as bags and shoes are expensive. Only tobacco and drinks are cheap. On the way back to Barcelona we admired the countryside while listening to Fabien's interesting info on various places, plants, historical facts and Catalan tradition.
This excursion is a must! But please, ask for Fabien! Otherwise, don't go! Fabien, we give you 5/5!
If you're staying in Naples, then it's ok. If you're staying in Sorrento, then be prepared for a very tiring day. It's a 1-hour drive to Naples and then 3 minutes to Pompeii where you will spend most of the tour. Still, Pompeii was fantastic! Very, very interesting and worthwhile. Our tour guide was helpful and informative. However, she was not good at controlling her group. First they took us to a store where they sell corallo products and told us to have a look around. Some people left, others shopped so in the end we got lost and missed valuable time getting all gathered up again. Anyway, Pompeeii was really interesting. As far as Naples, we only had the chance to get in the Duomo. It would have been nice to get inside the Palazzo Reale and in some other sights. It was a good tour but very expensive and overpriced for what we got.
We loved the fact that there was no guide so all visitors could have their own headphones and switch to their own language. The information given was helpful and thorough. The bus arrived quickly and had stops in all the major sights of the city. We also had the chance to stop for photos. Copenhagen was a beautiful city so we could not ask for a better way to see it all. We hope that next time we book a tour, the Greek language will also be included.
