This tour was fabulous and Filippo our tour guide was great. He gave just enough information about each place we visited. Andorra is a beautiful country to visit with a very interesting history.
We had a lovely trip The scenery was beautiful. Our tour guide was excellant - very informative.Only downside was weather at one point - 5degrees but no one can control that Would certainly recommend the trip to others and hope to take more trips with Viator in the future
Amazing day, driver guide was fantastic, small group. The tour of the medieval town and then the fortress town was great. Time allowed at each venue was good too. The time for shopping and lunch in Andorra was also plenty. A long but very rewarding trip to see three countries in one day!
5 stars to Viator. This tour first provided a drive-by look at and brief history of Montserrrat. Then a stop in a quaint Catalunyan village (Bagá). Then across the border for a stop in a small nineteenth-century French village for coffee and pastries (Mont-Louis). Finally on to sophisticated Andorra la Vella, where we had free time for to have lunch, shop a little and start counting the hundreds of international banks that do business there.
5 stars to our guide. He was informative, charming, and solicitous about our comfort. He provided just the right mix of facts and 'color' so that even after relatively short stops, we felt we had known these places for years. He knew the answers to all of our questions -- and he was an excellent driver!
Highly Recommended. We had a great day. The guide was very helpful and the landscape was beautiful. It snow in France and Adorra. It was my first time experiencing the snow and I was not disappointed. Baga in Spain was a gorgeous little village. Would go again.
This was a very special trip. Our driver/tour guide Nico did a great job describing what we were seeing, as well as getting engaged in discussion on the economy and politics of the area. There were only 8,including Nico, so we had no trouble getting to know everyone and enjoying the day of sightseeing. The stops in Baga and Mont-Louis where just the right amount of time, and not something you would normally see on a tour from Barcelona, and well worth the visit. And of course, the shining star of Andorra was great for shopping, eating and if you look around closely, an old church and some neat buildings. The drive up and back took us through beautiful countryside. Nico installed confidence in us of his driving in the mountainous region. Concern about driving those roads alone was one of the things that started me looking for a tour, and I am very happy to have come across Viator. I would recommend them again, and will use them myself for future sightseeing trips.
Our tour guide was Fabien who was the best guide we had ever had so far! He was highly knowledgeable, multilingual as well as enthusiastic. The van ride was very pleasant. Despite driving for hours, we all had a conversation in the van and enjoyed ourselves so much that we could not really pay attention to time. Driving on the Pyrenees was a dream come true for us. The landscape was incredible, there was snow everywhere, cyclists in the middle of the tiny countryside streets as well as ski slopes where you could see the all the mighty skiers doing their best. The visit to Mont Louis (the fort) was very interesting. We enjoyed the original French croissant and we also had the chance to taste a traditional pastry with sugar on top which was a real treat! The village is literally next to the Pyrenees. Next, we headed to Andorra and to its capital Andorra la Vella. Now that's a strange city! Situated in the middle of nowhere, hidden at the bottom of the Pyrenees, it is like a secret waiting to be unfolded. Even though Andorra la Vella is famous for its duty free shops, still, products such as bags and shoes are expensive. Only tobacco and drinks are cheap. On the way back to Barcelona we admired the countryside while listening to Fabien's interesting info on various places, plants, historical facts and Catalan tradition.
This excursion is a must! But please, ask for Fabien! Otherwise, don't go! Fabien, we give you 5/5!
This is an absolutely beautiful tour. Baga and Mont-Louis are both historic and charming. We highly recommend lunch at the Pastisseria L'Espiga d' Or in Andorra.
We were collected from our starting point in the early morning gloom near the incredible Palua de la Musica,which soon changed to a bright, sunny day.Interesting fellow travellers and a great guide definitely contributed to making the day successful.Drink and wander around ancient village, morning coffee in France and a chance to post some mail, observations of the spring thaw and the snow covered peaks of Andorra. Fabian our guide and driver pointed out a good place to eat and went out of his way to escort me to the Post Office where we chatted for nearly an hour while the 47 other customers were attended to. After lunch he asked if we would like our passports stamped and we did so as we returned to Barcelona by a scenic route via the craggy rocks of Monserat

We are from Puerto Rico and enjoy the tour very much. Fabian was knowleadgeable, enthusiastic and extremely affable. Our tour partners a couple from Cyprus and a family from Ucrania were very friendly and we became very close during the tour. We strongly recommend this tour. Milagros and Edgar
Fabulous tour. Our guide Fabian was amazing, very knowledgeable and helpful. Andorra was just beautiful, although the snow was unexpected : )
We had a great time. I loved seeing the country side. The guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. We wish we would have been better prepared for the weather, but we still have a great time.
