I was excited about this tour. The villages we visited were exactly what I expected--wonderful old world architecture, charming and picture perfect. I just wish the tour guide would have made better recommendations for lunch. She described the Catalan cuisine as something we must try--rich and delicious, and then she recommended a restaurant that delivered the exact opposite. I've never had such a bland meal before in my life. The tour guide also treated us like children. On one occasion she said she had a surprise for us as if we were school children. I guess she didn't realize that I had already read about the surprise in the tour description online--just a tad bit condescending. I would love to visit these villages again, but I don't think I'm encouraged to go on this tour again. I would highly recommend that tour guides be briefed on exactly how the tours are described at time of purchase. Handouts that describe the tour locations, points of interest, the history, and solid recommendations for lunch, would be and excellent idea.
I didn't have much time in Barcelona so this was the perfect tour. Our tour guide was excellent. He shared unique bits of history behind each destination without going overboard. He kept it interesting. I highly recommend this tour if you'd like to experience some of Barcelona's top points of interest. When I visit again, I know the spots I want to explore again on my own time. We also had time for a delicious lunch of tapas in a lovely plaza. I highly recommend this tour.
