This tour was fun! Although it rained we still managed to make the most of our trip to the Pyrenees. Our tour guide, Fabian was incredible! He is well versed in the area and region of Spain, and had much information to share with us on everything from the history of the towns we were in, to random facts of places we crossed. The Pyrenees is a breathtaking mountain where you can picnic or hike or have a hot chocolate. Definitely take the cable car up to the top, because you will not want to miss the spectacular view. My favorite part of the whole experience was being able to peruse through the hustle and bustle of the farmers market in Vic! The fresh produce and bakeries and meat shops were simply inspiring! If you enjoy food, outdoors and history, this tour is highly recommended.

This was one of the best things we did on our trip. Our guide was terrific. He did everything he could to make our day a success. We learned so much about the culture and geography of the region. He even managed to introduce us to one of the locals men, who opened the church for us. We had an amazing day.

A fantastic experience. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful guide, Jordi who was so helpful and kind(!). It was also great to be part of a small group tour and we were given time to explore the area and the stunning scenery on our own too. A trip to remember.

This was probably our highlight to our whole trip to Spain (with a re-positioning sea voyage to Miami). We spent a whole 12 hr day, stopping in Viz etc....our driver, Fabian was the best ! Well educated.....knew the trip...kept us interested...and for 4 of us at 78 yrs old, we never tired out. AS mu

A perfect experience for two well traveled69 year olds. Our tour leader, Feliciano, was incredible knowledgeable and informative. All the arrangements were transparent; plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get answers. Doors opened for us that I don't think we would have discovered on our own.

It is a small group tour(8 people) Our guide Fabian was the best. He is so knowledgeable about the Catalan area and answered many questions, He was interesed in helping us with the rest of our stay in Barcelona. We stopped in Vic and the entered the cathedral. Were able to buy cheese and fuet here and had time to get a coffee and explore the city a bit. I love mountains and the Pyrenees are not to be missed. Our destination of vall De Nuria did not disappoint. Do walk to the top or take the furnicular up. Food is avaialble at this site. Fabian loves his job and shows it.

Fantastic day out. Catered for all fitness levels as there are lots of walks you could take. The scenery is breathtaking. The guide was helpful and full of knowledge. We were given plenty of time to both shop, buy lunch from local stores and sit enjoying coffee at a local cafe. We visited the local village as well as other townships. A day not to be missed.

This was a great trip!! My cousin and I spent a couple of days in Barcelona before leaving on a cruise, and for the rest of the trip we kept saying we wanted to go back to the Pyrenees.
Alex, our tour guide, was great. He gave a lot of history about Vic and the Pyrenees. And we had a really diverse group on the tour as well, which provided great conversations.
The tour was a nice mix of lightly guided with lots of free time. There was no sense of being herded around because there were only 8 of us with the group.

Well worth trip...the mountain is superb, but be prepared for the bus ride journey. For those who get car sick easily, be prepared, because it is along winding roads, most of us got quite car sick at the end of it. But the scenary is superb. Be very prepared for the cold and windy weather as well.

Brilliant tour. We did two tours with this company and they were very different but both excellent. This one had some freaky elements - the hilltop place you picnic is like a Catholic theme park, with relics that some Bishop faked in the 12th Century to attract pilgrims. but you can ignore that and enjoy the animals and the view.. If you get to VIc on market day it is superb. Learn a few words of Catalan and the villagers will love you; otherwise speak English not Spanish for better service!

This was the highlight of our trip. We loved the fact that there was 5 of us with the guide. We visited Vic and did a walking tour and then picked up wine, cheese and sausage for a picnic in the mountains. Our guide was amazing (Uri) with the information he shared and advice he gave. The scenery is breathtaking. Highly recommend this tour. It's worth every penny!
