Tarragona - AMAZING is the only thing to say about this trip! I totally recommend it for anyone with a love of history! Walking around the actual gladiator pit and stepping on the market steps where Romans once were is just truly the coolest thing ever! Sitges is the cutest town on the beach side and another great way to wrap up the tour!

Our small group to Tarragona and Sitges consisted of only my wife, myself, and our guide Arnold. This was by far the most personal tour we have ever been on. The Roman ruins are absolutely amazing and the aquaduct is truly a site to behold. It is in fantastic condition and the walk there is not too far. However, there are areas you need to be careful when walking. Our guide was extremely familiar with the history of the Romans in this region and had sufficient visual aids to assist in our understanding. While in Tarragona on our own we visited the history museum of the old Roman Circus and it was really good and cost only five euro. We also enjoyed Sitges and had a late lunch at a very good restaurant Arnold recommended. Walking around in both of these old historic seaside towns was a lot of fun and we were quite pleased with the entire experience.

Beautiful hiking on the coast and you got to select your own restaurant for lunch. Recommended. We ate paella on the beach in Sitges.

There were 6 of us in this small group and it was very nice. Would have liked to have more time in Tarragonia and less in Sitges as there are more sites in tarragonia. Our guide Marta was awesome!

One of the most meaningful side tours we have ever taken anywhere. Our guide was able to get the key to open the door of the Jewish Mikveh Ritual Bath in the town of Besalum that goes back to the 11th century. If you know the history of the Jews in Spain, this was extremely moving for my wife and I. Our guide made it that much more meaningful, by accompanying us and sharing the emotion of that place with us.

Super informative tour guide, he really knew his stuff and was passionate about the country and its history. Tarragona is a must see place!! highly recommend doing the tours that stop in the beach towns, Sitges, only in the summer though, as nearly everything was closed and the time we had to explore was wasted.

The Tarragona and Sitges tour tour was a wonderful experience for anyone with an interest in the Roman period. Beautiful views and Sitges was a complete complement from forest to beautiful town.

This was an excellent experience. Anna, our guide, made it so. We had plenty of time to explore both villages. The two other couples were great companions. Anna was knowledgeable and eager to answer any of our inquiries. The trip is well worth the cost and time.

Terrific day trip, with plenty of time to do our own thing in both Tarragona and Sitges.
