Our excellent guide Nico he was our guide the previous day as well took us on an unforgettable day tour of three villages outside of Barcelona. There were only four of us on the tour so it felt like a private tour. HIghlights included a picturesque Romanesque bridge in Besalu, charming Rupit with streets made of lava and best four course lunch ever! and sublime Tavertet, situated on the edge of a basalt cliff. We would have never visited these towns on our own. The was an outstanding tour!
This was a great full day out. Was great value for money. Our guide Marteze was very informative and very pleasant. Each village had their own different thing about them. Would recomend it to anyone .
Our small group visit to Besalu, Rupit, and Tavertet was absolutely incredible. Anna, our guide, did a really wonderful job explaining the history of each town and allowed us plenty of time to roam the town on our own with a map. Each of the medieval towns is very clean and extremely well maintained. Especially enjoyed Besalu and was able take a number of good pictures. The drive through the mountains to Rupit is picturesque and once there we enjoyed crossing the wooden bridge that will only accommodate 10 people or less at one tome. We also enjoyed the restaurant In Rupit that Anna recommended to the group. Even though the tour was in February the weather was accommodating as it was sunny but windy. The last stop was in Tavertet and while the town is very small and the time spent there was minimal the view of the mountains and ravines was truly spectacular. I would highly recommend this tour. As my wife was under the weather during the tour, Anna was extremely kind and went beyond the call of duty by assisting her with medication needed to purchase at a local pharmacy.
A wonderful trip through the scenic and unspoiled Catalan countryside.Our driver guide, Feliciano, was extremely knowledgeable and personable, taking good care of our small group. We had ample opportunity to explore the villages and get the photos we wanted, and due to excellent weather we were also able to visit the top of the serpentine cliffs near Tavertet where the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. We learned a great deal about the social and historical differences between Catalonia and Spain. Our trip to Barcelona was wonderful, and this tour made a perfect ending to that vacation.
We had a fabulous time on this day trip. With the small group size, it felt almost more like we were exploring with friends rather than on an organized tour. Our guide, Anna, was a treasureshe was informative and humorous. Then, of course, the villages were so picturesque. If you're looking for a way to see the region surrounding Barcelona, this is a great option.
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.
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.
It was a full day and our guide was excellent. The trip includes more than the medieval villages with very scenic views between villages.
We had two guides who were a delight one was a newer guide taking notes. They knew the history of each place really well and told us great stories. Rupit was amazing and the food was delightful. Make sure you try the ratafia! If you love history, or at least the old buildings that give you a sense of history, this tour is for you.
This tour was absolutely fantastic, not rushed, so nice to be able to sit an enjoy a full menu dinner while getting to chat with other people without feeling pushed.
Still had huge amounts of time in the three stunning villages, Anna, our guide was informative but we still had plenty of time to wander.
We had a great time on this tour, the guide was amazing and the villages were awsome. We had a great meal and a wonderful time.
Amazing tour our guide was extremely knowledgeable would recommend this tour to everyone
Wonderful scenery and a passionate, patriotic Catalan guide made the trip one of the highlights of Spain.
