The drive through the Pyrenees has some terrific scenery. The village on the Spanish side maintains some very medieval touches. The village on the French side also has some quaint touches. Andorra is a very modern place. Clean well maintained and compact. It is surrounded by mountains on 3 sides.
If you like Duty Free shopping, this is the best place in the world by far. A pleasant day out.
This tour was fantastic!! Our guide was a young lady unfortunately, I can't remember her name who was the best! She told us all the history of each place we visited and was very friendly and had a terrific personality. We visited Baga in Spain, which was very interesting, then Mont-Loius, France which was so beautiful. Lucky for us, it had snowed the night before so there was snow every where. Snow on May 1st!! Our last stop was the country of Andorra which was unique and beautiful. You can't go wrong for the money on this tour. So glad we went.
Better than expected, worth visiting, very beautiful villages in France and Spain. Andorra is unique
This was my favorite tour by far. Joseph, the tour guide was very personable and informative. He also shared a lot of tips about great restaurants in Barcelona.
I took other tours, but they were all to very crowded places. On this tour, we were the only tour group almost everywhere we went.
We took a very comfortable bus that fits 20 or so. I think there were 20 of us on the tour and there were a couple seats left.
Anyway, this is the tour I recommend the most. It's rich in history and spectacular in beauty.
What a great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a long day in the luxury van but the scenic countryside more than made up for it! Every turn of the road brought beautiful vistas and our stops in France and Andorra were great. The Pyrennes Mountains were jaw dropping and we really enjoyed this trip.
We had a truly great time on this excursion. Veronica, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and such a pleasure to be spend the day with. The tour was beautiful. Andorra was our favorite : I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking to see several countries. Everything was very well organized and absolutely no issues, we enjoyed : Thank you!
This is highly recommended if you are in Barcelona. The tour left at 7:00 am from Barcelona near the Catalunya metro station. The van sits about 20 people and our guide Laura speaks very good English. First stop was Baga, Catalonia, Spain. It's a medieval town near the French border. It was quite an amazing place. Don't forget to bring your jacket and it gets pretty cold here. Next stop was Mont Louis, France. This is walled medieval town and has spectacular mountain view. We had breakfast here. And last stop was Andorra la vella, Andorra. Another amazing city. We were left on our own here to shop and dine. We left Andorra just in time to be back in Barcelona by 7:00 pm. My only recommendation is to add more time spent at Andorra. Maybe another hour. I think we had only than less that 2 hours there. Anyway, the trip was amazing. Imagine you were in 3 countries in 12 hours.
Our guide, David, was wonderfully entertaining. He knew a great deal about the history of the areas we were going, and took the time to explain everything to us. He was so friendly, it felt less like a tour, and more like a really fun road trip between good friends. I am so glad I went on this tour!
Was fun. Andorra was different. Daniel was an excellent guide. Professional n knowledgeable. Coach driver also to be complimented for his driving skills.
Highly recommended tour.
It's an early morning departure well worth the experience, plenty of rest stops along the way. Buy croissants and cheese while in France. Safer, and as comfortable as a car. Plenty of photo opportunities and shopping in Andorra.

This was a great all day trip! Baga, the small medieval town, was very interesting and picturesque. Mont Louis is a sleepy little village with great croissants! The trip to Andorra was beautiful and the capital is quite a ski mecca with beautiful stores and restaurants.
Our guide David was excellent! He made the history of the region so interesting that even my husband enjoyed it! His knowledge and love of his job definitely showed and he was a great driver! Our small group of 8 was just the right size and the trip was quite comfortable.
If you have the time, this is an excellent way to spend a day.
Great way to tour around Montserrat on your way to France for a quick cheese and croissant buying excursion, then into the country of Andorra, and back through small villages in Spain. Plenty of photo opportunities, and picturesque vistas. Better value than renting a car. Enrique, our guide, and our driver did a great job moving us around the area and the history.
The small, semi-private tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was quite informative and very entertaining. The drive through the countryside and the stops in each country were beautiful, peaceful and beguiling. Even the snow couldn't stop or dampen the enthusiasm of our group to learn more about the history of the region. I highly recommend this particular tour if you want to learn more about the history of the area and the people!
I've been on several tours throughout Europe, and this was BY FAR the most memorable and worthwhile. Everything happened just as it was advertised. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and likable, and obviously this is one of the things that made the tour great. I highly recommend this tour for anyone hoping to see and do a lot, in a little bit of time, and with minimal effort.
Carlota was an amazing guide and was so knowledgable regarding all of the places that we went. Just the fact of being in 3 different countries in one day was absolutely amazing! This tour is definitely highly recommended and hope you have Carlota as your guide!

Carlota led this trip well. Which was lifted from a great day out to a magical trip by virtue of the substantial dusting of snow in the Pyrenees. The travelling and scenery were a large part of the fun as it is so varied. The villages were nice snap shots of mountain locations. Andorra was more pleasant than reviews led me to believe for a shopophobe like me. Make the most of the few hours there. Take a pack lunch, head to the river and park, admire the surrounding mountain scenery and wander through the historic part. Several interesting sculptures surprise around the town. If you forget to pack lunch there's a supermarket right by where the bus parks.
I had a great time in this tour but we should have focused in the historical district of Andorra la Vella...
We took this tour the day after we arrived in Barcelona following an overnight flight. We were tired and weren't sure if we were up to it but we decided we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. There were supposed to be seven people on our tour but four of them did not show up. Maybe they came after we left but they were late. There was one other person with us on our tour so for the most part it was like having a private tour with our driver Enrique. He first took us into the Pyrenes and the town of Baga, Spain. After a stop there, we headed on to Mont Louis, France, for a short walking tour of the town and a breakfast of croissants and hot chocolate. We drove back into Spain on our way to the Andorran capital of Andorra la Vella. Enrique suggested a cheese fondue lunch at a local restaurant in Andorra and we decided to follow his recommendation. We were glad we did. We headed back to Barcelona after Andorra through the beautiful Pyrenes mountains and past Montserrat. It was a long day but the scenery was magnificent, as was the company. I would consider doing this tour again myself and would recommend it just for the scenery alone.
a beautiful time spent in the country side. Joseph was a wonderful guide with a witty personality. The old medieval towns still hold the same charm as in days of old! The Pyrenees are majestic!The best French croissants ever!
One long beautiful day! Not one minute too much! Fantastic scenaries in the Pyrenies - and the other places too! And David from Experience Catalunya was a 5 star tour-guide!
Tour guide Enrique was excellent. Very friendly and informative. Was not expecting the beautiful mountain views and fresh snowfall. Women's world cup was going on in Andorra which made it fun too.
Took lots of great photos. Plan on a long day but well worth the sights.
Stunning scenery, personable and knowledgable guide, reasonable pace, worthy stops at Baga, Mount Louis, passport stamped at Andorra, excellent description of Catalunya history. You'll want to come back for another tour.
