I was hesitant to do this tour due to it including about 8 hours on a bus, but I am so happy that I did it. I mostly just wanted to go to Andorra, but I'm really glad that I got to see Baga and Font Louis. The highlight of the trip was probably stopping at the lookout at the top of the Pyrenees and seeing the beautiful views and free-range horses. You are cheating yourself if you sleep during the ride. On the way up, you can see the ski towns, along with little villages. Then you get to see the Pyrenees, a huge lake, green valleys, the plains, and olive farms. This was one of my favorite parts of my trip, though I do wish we had more time in Andorra. It is worth the price.
The best day trip we've ever taken. The guide was totally fantastic and knowledgeable beyond anything expected. The views were great and we had just the right amount of time for shopping. We are a little older and need comfort stops more often. The driver made enough stops to make the long trip very pleasant.
The trip was a fast one, but I feel like I got a lot out of it. The guide was informative and I learned a lot about the region and its history. I would have liked to see more of Andorra than the shopping district, but it was a wonderful trip.
This tour, although it is quite long, was a great one! Our guide Carlota was friendly and funny and she was there to answer any question I had. I really liked the medieval village of Baga, as well as the French breakfast in Mont Louis. We then headed to Andorra where we had some time to have lunch and wander around and do some shopping. The only thing I would have altered is to dedicate more time in Andorra because having lunch takes some time, but on the whole it was a great tour where we visited three different countries!! Thanks Carlota!!
Was excellent!! David our tour guide spoke excellent English and had a great knowledge of all the places we went on our 3 countries day trip. I would highly recount this trip to anyone that is going to be in Barcelona for more than a couple days to see what the area is like outside of Barcelona..it is wonderful. Make sure you take a jacket because it is very cool in the mountains.
Very interesting and informative, lovely views. All together enjoyable
I loved the look of the country setting, the mountains, how the old homes and street where well kept. I loved it.

This was a wonderful day trip. Our tour guide, Feliciano, was very friendly, informative and kept everyone in our small group engaged. He knows a ton of great information on the areas. We first stopped in Baga, Spain which has a great history. This is a great way to see the Paironese Mountains and get out of the big city for a day. Our next stop was in Monte-Louis, France. Our tour guide bought us croissants and cafe-a-lait at small outside cafe. Exploring the walled city was great. I don't know how the French do it, but you just can't get a truly great croissant outside of France. Our 3rd country was Andorra. It was a wonderful place and we had plenty of time to explore on our own. The ride back was relaxing and interesting because they take a completely different route back to Barcelona. FYI, we used Viator for all of our day trips during our 3 week romp around Spain and enjoyed them all.
Beautiful scenic trip from Barcelona to France and Andorra. The tour guide took us on the back roads so we could see the countryside. Great shopping in Andorra, many restaurants to choose from. Tour guide was very informative, tour in France was very educational
We did the three countries in one day, loved it but especially the tour guide David Garcia! He truly enjoyed his job or at least it appeared he did, such a pleasant person. A real asset to your company!
I had absolutely great time at the tour. Our tour guide David was very friendly, funny, cheerful and professional. He gave very good tips during our tour including tips for barcelona also. Our driver was also very professional. The tour was worth for every cent.
Mabel was an excellent tour guide. We had loads of fun. Only wished we had more time in Andorra.
The tour office is on a side street tucked in by the Palau de la Musica and just parallel to Via Laietana, it was not hard to find and is in a good location. As for the trip itself, it was a excellent. It delivered exactly what was promised and Megan was a very good guide. It's a long day, but the bus was comfortable, the driver very good and the stops interesting. Both Baga, the well preserved Spanish Medieval town, and Mont-Louis, the French fortress, were fun to see and walk through, and at the latter we got a nice little breakfast of a croissant and hot drink. And the Pyrenees are quite spectacular--not really high but forested and rugged. The highlight of course, was Andorra. The capital, la Vella, is a small city in a spectacular mountain valley. The community itself is mostly devoted to shopping, but I had a nice long walk through town, found some excellent local pizza at an open air stall by the cathedral, and enjoyed just being in a funky little place that's a little off the beaten track. In fact, from talking to the others on the bus, it seemed we all enjoyed going to slightly different places that the usual tourist excursions miss. It was a pleasure to compare our travels and talk about future trips. Bottom line: Barcelona is a wonderful city, but if you have a little time and want to take a rewarding trip out of it, look at this one. You can have a lot of fun, get to see interesting places, and go to a country that not many people visit. It's good.
Long day with a lot of driving, but oh so worth it! Our guide, Lauda, was a gem, providing expert historical, political and geographical analysis during the tour. The stops were amazing...it was so cool to visit three separate countries in a single day! And while there was a lot of time spent on the bus, the scenery was beautiful and varied. Our family of six all agreed this was a highlight of our vacation!
Fun, full day with gorgeous scenery and exploring new places. Our guide was fantastic and was full of information!
This was an outstanding way to see the countryside of France, Spain, and Andorra. Though we did a fair amount of walking in each of the stops, this was still a very relaxing way to take in so much history and culture in one day. The scenery was fantastic and our driver and guide were wonderful. We had a lovely lunch in Andorra with most of our small group since we spent so much time together exploring the diverse towns. We would highly recommend this trip.
This was excellent! Some advice: it gets very chilly that early in the morning during the first couple of stops, but then by the time you're in Andorra, it gets hot! we went in July. This really is a wonderful day trip and every stop is beautiful and full of history. Our tour guide was delightful: knowledgeable and funny. I think his name was Felliciano. Andorra is great for tax-free shopping and you get free hot chocolate/coffee and a croissant at the stop in Mount Louis, a small old French town.
This is a tour not to miss!!! It was fantastic, beautiful scenery and our tour guide was the BEST!
This tour was great! Feliciano, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the region. In addition, he went above and beyond what was required to insure that everyone had a wonderful tour and had all of his/her questions answered!! He even gave his "clients" suggestions for authentic tapas!!!
Fabulous day out.
Andorra is lovely and has a very interesting history.
Our guide was very informative.
The stop in France is a bit ordinary but still is a great tour.
Would be happy to recommend this one.

I enjoyed this day trip. The 8 of us went in a minivan, so we were a little cramped. But, it didn't matter. Andorra is out-of-the-way, and this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see it.
Although a long day,it was so worth it. Very educational especially Baga and Mount Louis. Our guide David was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, funny and flexible. Highly recommend this tour.
