Wow, what a day, beautiful medieval villages and a very knowledgeable tour guide.We enjoy so much more by going out into the countryside and discovering the history of the region. Barcelona very busy, good to get away from the hustle and bustle. I thoroughly recommend this to anybody, especially those who have been to Barcelona before and would like to see something a bit different
A wonderful day outside the city. Our guide Rob was terrific. Each of the three villages had their own charm. The ride up the mountain to the last village was spectacular ! Well worth doing.
We had a wonderful tour with Enrique--very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. The tour was well planned, however I felt we could have had more time to explore the first town, Besalu as there were several different locations to explore. The lookout at the last stop was also amazing!
I loved this tour! It was great to see outside the city walls and go back to ancient times. Really fun exploration of medieval villages and nice dining experience. It was cool to meet new people this way and share the experience, the tour gives plenty of opportunities for interaction. Highly recommend this for anyone who is into history and/or architecture and wants to see all the beauty of the surrounding areas.
Loved this tour! Beautiful and highly informative. Full marks to our tour guide Pep for providing interesting background history in a witty and emthusiastic manner.
Great driver/tour guide Pep aka Rodrigo. Vibrant personality and got us through dramamine roads. Besalu and Rupit the best...Tavertet forgettable and a ghost town. Recommend adding a medieval castle to this instead. Tour contracted out to a local tour operator across from Palau Musica in Gothic Quarter.
It was one of the highlights of our trip in Barcelona. David is a great guide and driver. We had enough time too enjoy all the places. Love the people in Barcelona and Spain!
Tour was interesting, and the villages have such peace and serenity that make one Long for those moments of silence. We went during the off peak season, tour only comprise of my Daughter and me, plus the tour guide. The places we visited were amazingly beautiful, and not to mention great tour guide!
This tour surpass all my expectations. Our guide was Joseph who was great, talkative and provided great explanations and insight. I believe it was around 14 people the day with did the tour which made it more intimate. We all got along great, we loved all three stops, the villages are amazing and the sightseeing getting there is breathtaking. We strongly recommend this tour and would love to do it again.

Amazing tour. Joseph was an amazing guide . Being a small group tour it was all the more enjoyable. Would highly recommend.
Had a great time on the tour. It was very interesting to see the old villages. Guide was good and the four of us enjoyed the tour.
Great tour. Good explanations of the history of the Villages and what we were seeing. Good pacing and appropriate time in each place.

The bus was comfortable and Anna was a great tour guide. The price fixed lunch that she set up far exceeded any of our expectations. Definitely worth the trip.
This tour was awesome. There were only three of us in the 'small group' - my wife, myself, and one other guest. Enrique was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable and friendly! He went out of his way to make sure we had a great day, including some special stops at his favorite viewing points. We even had lunch with him at his favorite restaurant in Rupit, which was delicious and inexpensive. All in all, a wonderful day which I would encourage anyone to experience.
THE TRIP WAS EXCELLENT. OUR GUIDE WAS FABULOUS. WELL WORTH THE MONEY. I WILL FOR SURE USE YOU AGAIN.
Joseph was a great guide, and we enjoyed seeing the villages. The lunch restaurant was terrific--the food as good as any we had on our whole trip.

This tour was great. Our guide was among the best of all our 12 tours through Spain and Italy. Highly recommended.
guide Josefe was wonderful - his love of and knowledge of Cataunya showed in his descriptions. Went to charming villages would not hacve otherwise seen.
My personal favourite Barcelona tour from the 6 we did!!! What a tour!! Our guide Josep was the best guide ever. all the medieval villages were simply picturesque and he also found the time to take us on top of cliffs to witness eagles flying above us! I will surely never forget this tour. And even the meal that we had in one of the small villages in a family-run restaurant recommended by Josep it was simply scrumptious. I would recommend this tour to everyone! You will surely never forget the views and panoramas!
Great tour - enjoyed the small old towns and great views - tour guide was very informative. I would recommend and even go on it again!
This was a great tour! The group was only 6 people, which really made the tour much better. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny.
My husband and I absolutely loved ever minute of this tour! Our guide, Emma, was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. Besalú, our first stop, was just stunning. We had enough free time to explore the medieval village, although we could have easily spent the entire day there!
We also headed to a viewpoint, where we had gorgeous views of the Pyrenees, which made for wonderful photo opportunities.
We then drove to Rupit, which was another picturesque village. We had a few hours of free time, to explore and have lunch. The was a fun rope bridge, which we crossed a few times while exploring. We also had lunch at Restaurant Albert, which offered a terrace with incredible views. After lunch, we hiked to a small church which our guide had pointed out earlier.
Our final stop was in Tavertet, which was a very small village, but it offered some of the best views!
We would highly recommend this tour, as both my husband and myself had one of the best days ever! Be sure to bring your camera, as there are so many wonderful photo opportunities on this trip!
Excellent tour for anyone interested in exploring old villages. Of the three villages visited, Besalu offers the most for a tourist. The Cingles de Tavertet sandstone cliffs offer an amazing view of the surrounding mountains and the Ter valley below the cliff. Our tour guide Emma was very knowledgeable and accommodating for our unusually large group.
