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.
Beautiful. We greatly enjoyed it. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Highly recommend it
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!
The Pyrenees Mountain trip was a great experience our tour guide for the day Alex was a great ambassador for Viator and quite knowledgable about the general history of the Catalan region and specifically the various stops alswaying. This is definitely a trip to take on any holiday in Barcelona.
Jordi was an excellent guide. Beautiful Scenery, stopping at the town of Old Vic was amazing and it was market day on Saturday so extra fun! Absolutely breathtaking scenery all the way and the top is brimming with activities for every person imaginable and all levels of fitness. Next time I want to hike up instead of ding the cog rail! Great group of folks to spend the day with too!
Fantastic Day! Along the way to the Pyrenees, our tour guide Anna ( fluent in English and engaging to talk with ) provided us with the opportunity to enjoy several old medieval towns, including at stop at a 10th century church. A local butcher provided us with a taste of Spanish sausages and cheese, perfect for our picnic lunch in the Pyrenees. The mountains are raw and gorgeous, and at her direction we chose the perfect hike. Fantastic trip.
We had a very enthusiastic guide! It was a beautiful day in the mountains. Only the bus was over-cooled...
What a nice trip....The mountains were beautiful as were the villages we visited. Would definately recommend this day trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed this full day trip, the guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the old towns and area.
This was so much fun. Much better than I thought it would be. The group was small and excellent and we had the mayor of Queralbes (one of the many stops) come out and greet us and give us a personal tour of their church. The tour guide Jordy was fantastic and fun. He showed us his favorite spots and they were really breathtaking.
After locating the Travel Agency, across from the Palau Musica in Barcelona, we were grouped together with six other persons in a van and guided by Adrien. Our guide was well versed in Spanish, Catalunyan,English and French. His contacts, and knowledge of the area, the traditions, and culture of Catalunya made this trip one well worth taking. Enjoyed it very much, as well as the hiking in the mountains above Valle de Nuria.. It iwas a welcome break from Barcelona, a busy, rushing city.---sag
A contrast to the city of Barcelona. A lovely quiet place to take in the scenery and enjoy the fresh air.
A very nice part of Barcelona with excellent and reliable guide. Guide was very helpful and kept us entertained, never a dull moment. Money well spent.
Excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. Our guide (Anna) was so pleasant and helpful.
It's extremely tough to get to the Pyrenees from Barcelona without having a car. This tour provides a good way of getting there, while getting tons of local history as well! Note: you only spend a few hours up in the Pyrenees. Don't go in thinking you'll have the entire day to hike in the mountains, or you'll be disappointed. I would have preferred more time in the Pyrenees (and less in Vic), but I enjoyed the tour highly nonetheless.
We recently took the Pyrenees day trip. It was a great day. Our guide was very personable, informative, and enthusiastic about the sights. The old town area of Vic was lovely, with a nice church to visit and many cute food shops. We then took the train from Queralbs to Vall de Nuria, which was spectacular. It is a beautiful region nestled in the mountain peaks. We then visited the tiny village of Queralbs, where our guide asked the mayor's wife for an antique key to open a small church that's over 1000 years old, so that we could see inside. We were the only tourists in town! It was a great experience, and one of our favorite days on our trip to Spain!
Excellent, our tour guide Alex was fantastic, very informative and the mountains and hikes were excellent, highly recommend!
To anybody visiting Barcelona, I would highly recommend this tour. It is totally worth every penny of your money. Our tour started with the visit to the centuries old catalonian city of Vic where our guide gave many intersting historical insights. We then moved on to the Pyrenees which has got to offer some spendid views of landscapes. The valley provides a very nice location for click-clicking!!! The mountains have many hiking routes which our guide had thoroughly explained, so we took one of them and enjoyed the breath-taking views. You can even take cable car (tickets included in the fare along with the train ticket upto Pyrennes), go horse-riding or boating, so lots of activities to choose from in an ample amnt of time.You won't feel the need to rush. Our trip finally concluded with the visit to a beautiful mountain town of Queralb where again our guide had lots to share about its history. She actually made history intersting!! She paid individual attention to each one of us and helped us in interacting with our other co-passengers. She was real fun and friendly, she made the trip all the more lively and seems to be the best guide we ever met. We had a terrific day!! Don't miss this excursion.
The best trip I could have organised while in Barcelona. If you like the fresh air and beautiful views, this is the trip for you. Adrian our guide was great. Make sure you take plenty of warm clothing as weather can change in the mountains. It snowed in May while we were there. Fabulous.
