Phillipo was an amazing guide, knowledgeable and very personable. He took us to his 'special' places ie Vic and Queralbs and even turned on a huge hail storm high in the Pyrenees whilst the temperature down lower remained at around 38degrees. A fantastic day, highly recommended and definitely the highlight of our 37 days of travel! Bev and Veen, Auckland,New Zealand.
Our guide was David. He tried to introduce us some of the places we pass by. He was very helpful. We had a guided walk through Vic. It was a nice town wished we could have more time to explore. The area around Vall de Nuria was serene. Glad we brought lunch so that we could have more time taking the short walking trails. Especially enjoyed the walk around the beautiful village, Queralbs. Drive was nothing spectacular though.
great day trip with a small group and a great English speaking guide. I did not expect the beauty that was going to see. Spring was an amazing time to visit this location, so green and lush, water running, sun shining and not too hot. Food available on top of the mountain but we got a picnic as it was a nice day, beer and wine available there too. We wish we knew you could stay up on top of the mountain's hotel as it was relatively affordable and the extended walks would have been nice to do.
The only way to go. Smaller groups makes for more time in each place! Incredible!
This was my favorite. We were more people than I thought, the views were breath takings. Loved hiking with my daughter and met wonderful people alone the way.
The description was not clear either on this trip. We took a bus for 2 hours and a train for 1/2 hr. This was not part of the description, but it was worth while to do it. Also, bring an extra fleece jacket, or hiking vest. It was much cooler than we thought. I highly recommend this trip, specially if you love outdoors.
The excursion to the Pyrenees was fabulous! We enjoyed the small bus/van and our guide Robert was knowledgable and fun. So great to see a different perspective of Catalunya. The great outdoors was just a short ride away from Barcelona but a world apart. The mountains, stone village and horses of the mountains combined with the medieval village of Vic with an ancient Roman ruin made for a wonderful day. We ended with a brief visit to a pub for the locals and felt part of it all. Thank you!
Fantastic tour, guide was awesome. Very knowledgable and very patient. Brilliant day highly recommend.
A wonderful experience. Isi our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Pestered him with questions which he patiently answered. We stopped at Vic and Isi gave us some very interesting political trivia. We then headed up to Queralbs and then Nuria. The trip was better than I imagined it to be.
This was an excellent tour. Beautiful mountains, hiking trails suitable for all levels of fitness. The guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. My only concern is that the tour is described as a SMALL tour in a minivan of six to,eight people. The local tour operator stated they never represented that and the number of the tour was more than twenty five people not really so small as described. While this did not affect our experience, I think the description of small tours should be more clear.
This was a great day trip! I really like that it was a small group, so we had lots of opportunity to chat with the guide who was knowledgeable yet laid back. We had lots of time to explore Vic and Queralbs on our own. I only wish we had had a little more time to actually hike in Val Nuria when we got there. My advice would be to communicate with your guide to make sure you have as much time in the mountains as you want.
My wife and I took this tour at a friend's suggestion and were very pleased. Booking on the net was simple and convenient. The tour left the tour office around 8.30 and we returned at 7 in the evening. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. We were also lucky to have had a market day in Vic.
À voir absolument, pour les amants de la nature et les autres, c'est à VOIR! Veronica est formidable et s'exprime très bien en anglais. Pour des francophones presque unilingue nous avons bien compris ses explications. Les villages de Quériads et Nuria ainsi que Vic sont de beaux villages médiévaux. On ne regrette absolument pas notre choix. Nous le recommandons.
This tour was the perfect balance of information and time to explore on our own. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. Definitely recommend if you want to see the Spain countryside.
Had a great time! Was a beautiful view and our guide was very informative. This was one of the highlights to our trip to Barcelona and recommend this day trip if you are interested in seeing more of Spain's natural beauty.
Definitely a must do if you have time! The views are amazing, the tour guide was very knowledgable and the hike up the mountain was really fun! Bring warm clothes though, it could get quite cold up the mountain!
Our tour leader was awesome her knowledge of the area and history had us all spell bound
Great tour, great views, great photo taking opportunities. Very unique tour. Our guide George spoke perfect English and wa very personable. Highly recommend this trip!
The tour was amazing. Our guide Anna was fun, friendly and very knowledgeable.
This was a fabulous tour! The owner, Robert was our guide. The view was awesome! A bit of a hike up to the vantage point...but well worth it! Would definitely recommend this tour!
An amazing day!! Will be remembered for a long time. Our guide Lydia is absolutely excellent and very knowledgeable and the whole group was really great. Highly recommend!
My husband and I had a great time at the Pyrenees. The group was small and comfortable. First, we stopped at the small town called Vic. We enjoyed the town and the history. The Pyrenees view is breathtaking. Most of all, we enjoyed our tour guide, Fabian. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the culture and history of Catalan. On our last day in Barcelona, we purchased a book about the history of Catalonia at Museu Historia de Barcelona. Thanks Fabian! You were fantastic!
This day trip was yet another highlight of our Barcelona experience. The trip up the mountains was interesting and fun. Views at the top of the mountain were simply breathtaking. My only criticism would be that the food outlets were limited due to being close to end of season. Overall a fantastic experience.
This tour so exceeded our expectations! Fabulous! It was a nice change of pace from the hustle, bustle of the city. Our guide, Jordi, was marvelous! We bought wine, cheese, bread and ham at the quaint shops in Vic and had a charming picnic in the valley! Amazing views, beautiful towns... Spectacular!
