Montserrat Royal Basilica Half-Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

Half a day seems too short. Doesn't give you enough time to go up and down the mountain or do any hiking. Just a quick run around, a little shop and boy choir. The MAIN gripe is MISLEADING advertizing on part of Viator as to the language of the tour. We read "English speaking guide" and assumed the tour would be in English. We were WRONG! The tour was in Spanish, then translated to English. As soon as the tour guide would switch to English, the Spanish speakers would start chattering. Extremely distracting and disrespectufl! Not to mention too much narrating because of the several languages. We felt very annoyed and misled. Frankly, I wouldn't even recommend this tour.

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour!! There were supposed to be 8 of us, but only two couples showed up, including us. So, it was pretty much a private tour. Lydia was our guide and she was great! Salvador Dali happens to have a great importance in her life and she feels very passionate about his art and his life. So her narration was very engaging, extremely knowledgeable and emotional. She's a great driver as well and made us feel comfortable on all those windy mountain roads. Even though, it's not really a part of the tour, she spent 1.5 hrs with us at the Dali museum, continuing her narration and explaining the masterpieces to us. She has a great sense of humor and just made the day very informative and fun! She even sang to us (great voice) on the way back to Barcelona and bought us all coffee at the Cap de Creus. All in all, it was a great trip with an excellent guide and we couldn't recommend it more!

Avila and Segovia Day Trip from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The tour was all right. The tour guide, while professional, was a bit monotonous. Could have used a livelier, more fun narration. Also, barely any free time is given to explore on your own.
The MAIN gripe, however, is MISLEADING advertizing on part of Viator as to the language of the tour. We read "English speaking guide" and assumed the tour would be in English. We were WRONG! The tour was in Spanish, then translated to English, then translated to Italian!! As soon as the tour guide would switch to English, everybody else would start chattering. Extremely distracting and disrespectufl! Not to mention constant narrating because of the several languages, that limits everybody's ability to chat with your fellow travelers because you need to let other people listen in their own language. At lunch we were seated at a table with all Spanish speakers. We don't speak Spanish, so it felt very awkward. Overall, We felt very annoyed and misled.
