Best tour I have ever taken. Our tour guide was amazing and was genuinely in love with the small towns we visited. Other tours are advertised as small group but this one actually is. The highlight of our entire trip to Spain. Highly recommended.
We are so glad that we booked this day trip to experience three medieval villages in Catalan! We were staying in Barcelona for five days and while we loved the city, it was great to see and learn about the surrounding area. Our guide Gloria was friendly, personable, knowledgeable, interesting, and accommodating--she was keen to the needs of the group and the individuals within it.
We were expecting to see the three villages on the tour, but we were delighted at the beauty of the Catalan countryside and spectacular views of the Pyrenees off in the distance. Gloria let us make some unplanned stops for photos of the landscape. She knew the history of the villages and of Catalan and we found her knowledge interesting and relevant to the tour. We would recommend this tour to anyone who visits Barcelona.
Tips: We took the tour in January and found that the villages were colder than Barcelona, so wear layers and expect a change in temperature. We also didn't reach our second destination for lunch until 1:30 or 2:00, so pack a snack to eat in case you get hungry between breakfast before the during and the lunch during the tour.
This was a wonderful day tour. Great value for the time and money. The villages were amazing. We had a fantastic lunch in Rupit. Our guide Marta provided so much useful information, nice balance between group time and free time to explore on our own.
Fantastic tour in every respect. Our tour guide was everything we could hope for knowledgeable, passionate and patient. He even made our lunch stop something special by recommending a local restaurant that was non touristy. Don't miss this tour if at all possible. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
Very well planned tour. Loved each moment of it. Only problem was food for me being a veggie. People say Besalu has really good restaurants but we struggled to find one with good vegetarian option.
such wonderful historic places
I highly recommend this trip to everyone who love medieval villages. The tour guide was excellent. I would deffinetly will choose Viator in my travels.
Had a fantastic time. The tour guide, Rodrigo was awesome. Perfect size tour group.
Truly enjoyed the very relaxed pace while at the same time getting a whole new insight in the Barcelona area. Guide was tremendous!
Excellent tour. Quite spectacular views, not only of the villages themselves but along the route also. The guide was doing everything to make us happy and show us the best spots for good pictures. The fact that it was a small group made the experience more enjoyable. I would recommend.
