Small-Group Medieval Villages Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Good meet and greet with our tour guide, as Viator groups are small and well traveled with the guide fluent in what ever the language of the group and history of the site to be visited. We visit Barcelona probably twice a year but Viator gets us outside the city in their car, their map and their driver. The side trips are breath taking, the views wonderful and the guide is not overbearing with a constant patter but gives good details at proper interval. Our three small, rustic, period villages were each unique. We had the guided walk around, seeing the top spots, then an agreed upon meeting time and spot. Then we were free to walk. I had a great espresso in a tiny coffee shop with a floor to ceiling display of miniature hand painted soldiers, Roman through US Civil War, German WW II panzer to NATO in Iraq, there must have been a thousand figures and really great coffee and dark bitter chocolate cookies. Who would have thought, 3rd Century chapels to one of a kind coffee shops. We had a great lunch with our guide in one city at a reasonably priced spot with great local food and wine with time for some shopping by Roman ruins. We had time for all three villages, travel to and from Barcelona and back home for tapas and wine before our supper. Wonderful. We have used Viator several times in Spain and have been well satisfied. We were introduced to Viator by another tour agency in Rome who, as they were not located in Spain, said this was the agency to use. When a competitor recommends you to their paying customers, that is high praise. Chuck and Elisa

Tower of London Entrance Ticket Including Crown Jewels and Beefeater Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Skip and Line is the way to go. We passed what seemed like thousands, went to the ticket confirmed line and showed a copy of our email and went right in. We have been to the tower before but could have joined in any Beefeater tour at no charge. Had a great time. Also the ticket had several days available so we could pick the day, depending on weather or such, and execute. We have used Viator several times in different countries and found them reasonable in price, well staffed, clean vehicles and great sites.

Montserrat and Cava Trail Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Monserrat has a lovely church and a great boy's choir, plus the walk to the small chapel below is quite breathtaking with the view of the valley dropping off sharply below and the mount above. The museum was quite nice and is a must see. Miss lunch or something to plan time there. The visit to a leading winery that produces Cava was impressive. Their underground cellars stretch miles and are four levels of wall to wall, bottle to bottle Cava.

Small-Group Barcelona Cooking Class

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great cooking class, hands on in food selecting, buying, prep, service and wine selection. We enjoyed the central market portion, where we selected the freshest ingredients, did the chopping and cooking, ate our great piallia, enjoyed both white and red wines and did not need to clean and pots and pans. Highly recommend.
