Great trip! We were very lucky to have Arnau as our guide who was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Alfons was our driver who drove us very smoothly through the narrow mountain roads. Thank you both for this amazing experience!!
What a great adventure we had!! Lots of history to be learned about these Villages and we did thanks to our wonderful tour guide...Sergio. Highly recommend this day tour from Barcelona.
We can't say enough good things about Viator. We have used this service for 6 or 8 years in our travels to Europe. We travel with friends to Barcelona almost once a year, sometimes a larger group, sometimes just the two of us. We enjoy Viator's quick trips outside of town as we don't drive all that well and we enjoy wine tastings and such, which we would not be all that comfortable with while carrying car keys. The tours are easy, informative and, while we have made this tour four times, for our friends and family it is a first time. On this particular trip, when we paused for lunch, we asked our guide for her real off the wall eating place and went there. It was a tiny local mom/pop butcher shop where we had fresh sausage, a regional ham, local cheese, great chunks of fresh bread and a bottle of the local red. The total bill was 4 Euros for the two of us for a wonderful lunch. We have done the wine tastings in the country side on another trip. We highly recommend this for quick side trips. We have yet to try time permitting the trip from Barcelona to the Alhambra, which is several days, includes transportation, meals and hotel for what seems a quite reasonable price. Perhaps next time.
Amazing tour! Very informative tour and unforgettable scenery. Our guide is professional. He paid good attention to each of us in the group, which is very appreicated. Highly recommend!
This is an AWESOME Day trip from Barcelona!! Our tour guide was OUTSTANDING! Our tour guide was friendly, fun, knowledgeable, joyful, thinks Out of the Box and makes everyone feel comfortable, welcomed and informed. The villages that we visited were enchanting! I throughly enjoyed my day on this tour and highly recommend that you experience this Small-Group Medieval Villages Day Trip Tour from Barcelona, as well. You will experience time with your tour guide comfortably laced with time on your own during the village visits. ENJOY!
Excellent value, extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. The bus/van was also comfortable, which is important because you do spend quite a bit of time on the road. The views of the countryside on the way back to Barcelona are gorgeous. Lunch in the second village was also excellent, and a great value as well- I recommend you follow the tour guide's advice for lunch, I don't think we would have discovered this little restaurant on our own. It was also a good opportunity to get to know other people on the tour.
this tour was awesome , the town we visit were so charming and the drive was so beautiful! Being at the beginning of December there was ice on tree branches, sun was out, blue skies. Truly beautiful !! Highly recommend it, Arnau was so full of information and was so awesome. Thank you!
That was really a wonderful trip. Tavertet was so quiet and peaceful with amazing view.We had the taste of a typical Catalan cuisine.Besalu was likewise extremely charming. Arnau, our tour guide was very knowledgeable in history and so funny at times. I highly recommend this Tour.It's like traveling back in time.
The three villages we visited were very different but great. The second village gives you opportunity to walk along the river is well worth the effort. It is a long day but excellent.
Great trip. Good mix of sight seeing with tour guide and free time. All 3 Villages very different. Must do trip whilst in Barcelona.
Rodrigo, our tour guide was so knowledgeable on the history of Catalunya and these breathtaking little villages. Just amazing! You are taken back in time in Besalu, Rupit and Tavertet. Definitely worth visiting. Highly recommend.
Our Medieval Village tour was the highlight of our trip! Our guide was Veronica, and she was amazing!!! This tour exceeded our expectations, and is more than worth the time and money to take. Highly recommended!
My husband and I loved this day trip. Three wonderful stops and a fantastic guide, Arnou, who imparted much knowledge and was a good guy. We would highly recommend this tour. We also took the 3 Countries in One Day Tour, which was good, but we liked this one better!
I like this trip. The driver and the guide is nice and they're very friendly. If I got another chance to visit back, will definitely take this trip again. We went out of the way to see a beautiful place. Superb!
Not as much walking as I thought a great thing lol. Great tour and our guide was the best.
We enjoy out our trip very much, our tour guide Sergio was very very good, he gave us a lot of interesting information. Wonderful trip, well worth to go . Thanks to Sergio again. Definitely recommend to visit.
Beautiful Tour, the places that We visit were fantastic, like taking them out from a Fairy tale book, The Tour Guide Feliciano was amazing and very informative about the places that We visited, I do recommend this tour to everyone interested in see more outside of Barcelona.
This is a tour not to be missed. A fascinating journey back in time, exploring well preserved medieval villages set in beautiful countryside. Besalu was unbelievable, with its dramatic fortified entrance approached along a high arched stone bridge across the river, with all of this mirrored in the water below. This set the scene for the day, with following visits to Rupit and the area around Tavertet just as intriguing. To top it off, we had an ideal guide, Feliciano. He was well versed in the history of the region and of the particular sites, providing very interesting and entertaining commentary throughout the day. He was mindful of the needs of the group, regularly checking that everyone was OK and clued into what he was saying. We had a safe and comfortable ride in the coach, thanks to the driver, Christian. Overall this was a great day and I would highly recommend the tour.
Our guide Carlota was wonderful, enthusiastic and full of information about the three wonderful villages we toured. I especially liked having free time to just wander and imagine what it was like to be in these places 500 years ago. The scenic drive and scenery from the villages was stunning. It was a wonderful way to escape the busy city of Barcelona for a day and see another side of Spain. Highly recommend this tour. A
Highly recommend this tour. The first two two medieval villages Besalu and Repit took you back in time.....winding your way through narrow stone paths and beautiful old buildings and churches was an authentic experience. Yes, there is some commercialisation for tourists particularly in Besalu, but you can work around this. The third stop in Tavertet wasn't so much a medieval village it did have a great 11th century church but is part of the tour mainly for the stunning scenery of mountains and cliffs. Plenty of magificent scenery along the way. The guide was very amicable and very knowledgeable. Maybe he went into a bit too much historical detail at times which I think lost the interest of the group. Don't miss this opportunity to get out of Barcelona. Much ,ore interesting than the urban frenzy and a true taste of Spanish countryside and it's medieval past. Didn't get bored once in the 10.5 hours
Three unique villages - one great day! Lorea was a great guide throughout the morning and afternoon. The highlight for us was the delightful lunch with wine, hearty food and desert. Amazing natural scenery in the mountains between the stops. No complaints!
Excellent tour and excellent tour guide! We visited Besalù, Rupit and Tavertet wonderful medieval towns. I definitely recommend it!
This was a small tour to 3 Medieval Villages. The driver and tour guide were great and our tour guide was very informative. The villages were beautiful and transported you back in time. We had a great lunch at the second village. It was a very enjoyable day.
