Really enjoyed this trip. Our guide, Isi, was a true mountain man and because our group was relatively small, he was able to lead us on a hike up the mountain. It was both fun and beautiful. There are a few additional stops to this tour, including in a town called Vic, as well as a tiny mountain village just outside the Pyrenees where every single moment is quite literally a photo op old, old buildings, in a still-lived-in city pretty cool.
Guide was personable, knew the area and gave valuable historical insight to social, economical and political growth of the region.
This tour was a surprise for my wife as I booked it reading the reviews. And she was delighted with the whole trip. We had a super time from pick up to drop off. Samuel, our guide, was a big plus on this trip, from giving us suggestions for a picnic lunch, to enlightening us on the passing places
AMAZING intimate tour experience. Our tour guide Laura was amazing, extremely understanding and friendly.
The tour had two parts - a visit in Vic and the visit in Nuria. The cathedral in Vic is nice to see but the rest of the stay unnecessary. The Nuria visit is great - wonderful nature and great hikes. Well worth a day trip

This was the best deal of the century! Our guide was fantastic, the places we explored were incredible. Our guide was enthusiastic even though I and #39;m sure he did this same route often. Saturday and #39;s market option in Vic was perfect for getting lunch to eat up at the top of the mountain later. The best!
thanks for remarkable travel! all you knows the country in the small cities and villages better. magic types, mountains, and even snow. will be remembered for a long time, separate thanks to Laura for participation and fine humour !
This was our favorite part of our trip, the tour guide, David made the experience even better. The views were breathtaking, did not want to leave. We learned a lot on the drive to and from the mountains. Worth every penny, would love to do this again. Highly recommend.
We had a great guide with Veronica. It was a very rainy day and it was snowing in the Pyrenees so whilst we did not get to hike it was still a great experience - especially if you have never seen the mountains before.
We had a great day in the Pyrenees on this tour. The weather was clear and sunny although still chilly. We visited Vic on a day the market was in full swing. The rack railroad ride through the mountain pass to Vall de Nuria was gorgeous and IMO is on a par with the train ride to Machu Picchu. We did some light hiking and also took the tram to the mountaintop. A visit to another medieval town and then a drive through beautiful scenery back to Barcelona. Highly recommend!

The trip to Pyrenees is highly recommended. The Nuria valley is a splendid sight. The Queralb village seems to be forgotten by time. The only recommendation we have is to allow for more time especially at the Nuria valley.
This was a great tour and the bonus was a spectacular weather day on top of it. The tour left from the offices by the Palau Musica which is very easy to find and close to the metro. We had about a 1 hour drive and stopped in the town of Vic. This was a charming town where our excellent guide, Feliciano gave us some of the town's history including showing us an intact Roman temple from early in the 2nd century and the local cathedral with beautiful murals instead of stained glass. We then got over an hour of free time to explore which since it was a Saturday and was market day, was a lot of fun as we gathered up supplies for a picnic in the mountains. We then continued on to the town of Queralbs where we caught the funicular train up to the Nuria Valley. Feliciano was able to answer questions and provide a lot of information about the area. Then we had a lengthy amount of time to hike and explore the Nuria Valley. There was some snow and skiers but we were able to still walk in sneakers without much trouble. After our hiking time, we got some more time to walk in Quelrabs and then the drive back to Barcelona. It was a great tour and tour guide and a beautiful part of Catayluna
Very good guide! Good timing to visit the villages and the Pyrenees. You didn't get tired.Good bus conditions. Yes, you can join this tour and enjoy it!

Our tour guide, David, explained the details of the history of Catalonia which made our trip very interesting. The breathtaking views, rich ancient history, Caga tio, train ride and cable car going up to the mountain covered with snow should not be missed.
A nice visit to the Pyrenees. David was an outstanding guide. He explained what we were going to see and gave great descriptions and history about each place.
Wonderful trip! It was great to get out of the city for a day of hiking in the beautiful Pyrenees. If you take this tour on either a Wednesday or Saturday you will be able to experience the market at Vic - well worth it!
As for Filippo when booking. He absolutely made the trip for our group. He was incredibly well informed and could answer any of our questions about Catalunya's history, culture and language. He was also flexible and offered our group a couple of options about how to spend our time. I cannot recommend him highly enough - great guy!
This was a nice day in the mountains. The scenery, beautiful, the little town of Querbles we stopped in before we took the train up was delightful. We thought we would have two hours up there to hike, but it was two hours total, so by the time we ate lunch, there was only time for the short hike down from the gondola ride. It was a lovely tour
It was a wonderful trip. Beautiful and quite informative. Loved the history and quaint, old village.
The tour was great. Guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. The day went too quickly. We would do it again if given the chance.
We enjoyed the varied day of activities with our wonderful tour guide, Feliciano, whose knowledge of the area kept it so interesting. We had a perfect September day Saturday for our tour and we were lucky to strike market day in the historic town of Vic. At the end of the sealed road at the quaint village of Queralbs we caught the rack railway up to Valle de Nuria where it opens out to a a grassed area overlooking a beautiful lake and resort hotel. Here we enjoyed the few hours of free time and we chose to take the gondola price included up to a vantage point where we saw many keen hikers walking through the mountains. We spent the rest of our time walking around the lake and just soaking up the beautiful environment. Time allowed a look around Queralbs on our return and again Feliciano kept us enthralled with its fascinating history. It was wonderful to be transported from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona for a day.
This was a tour full of beautiful vistas and panoramas! Mabel, our tour guide was simply amazing, giving us every detail about the places we visited. I really loved Nuria with the beautiful lake scenery. We also had time to go on a lovely hike in the mountains which was not difficult at all. A tip which I can give you is to buy some food for this tour, as there aren't many food options in the mountains, or else you buy it from Vic since there are many shops and there is also the market there. Highly recommended! Thanks Mabel!
