Good place to see ruins and learn about Roman culture. Our guide Kirk was very informative with a unique sense of humor. He also stopped along the way to show us an aqueduct and let us take photos. Would recommend this tour!
What a wonderful tour. We saw all the Roman ruins with a very knowledgeable guide. We were picked up at our hotel at the appointed time. We'll worth doing.
Our 1/2 day trip to Tarragon was fantastic! Our guide, Vicente and driver were outstanding. Tarragona is a lovely Roman city by the Mediterranean Sea.
Our day started with my wife and I being picked up from our hotel and from there we went to pickup another couple. The six of us then proceeded to Tarragona a out 45-60 minute ride. On the way into Tarragona, Vicente pulled over to view a 2,000 year old Roman aqueduct and to our great surprise, we stopped and were then able to walk along the top of the aqueduct!
We then proceeded into the city of Tarragona for our city tour. Vicente provided great historical information for context and backdrop as we walked through the streets of this Roman fortress city.
We spent from 9am - 3pm for this tour no lunch provided but then none was expected. Upon being dropped off to our hotel we said our thanks and goodbyes to all.
A highlight of our brief time in Barcelona we have visited this city many times.
I highly recommend this tour.
My wife and i had a half-day tour to Tarragona and thoroughly enjoyed it. Though we were booked on a group tour, we two happened to be the only guests that day, so it became a Private Tour!! We were picked up on time by Kurt on time and drove to Tarragona. The city is know for its Roman ruins, which have been preserved very carefully by the authorities. You can see a Colosseum where, animal fights were held in the third century. Besides that we also enjoyed walking through the ruins of the fort, from where the view of the colosseum and the sea in breathtaking.
Kurt was a very knowledgeable and helpful guide. I would strongly recommend to spend half a day visiting Tarragona if you are in Barcelona any time.
This tour was amazing - esp. because of our guide Nuria who was extremely knowledgeable about all the sights and went out of her way to make our day extra special. We recommend that tourists request Nuria for their next tour - Tarragona or other. The sites: spectacular and well worth visiting.
Great tour!! We actually met up with this tour in Tarragona since we were staying close by. Our tour guide Vincente was excellent!! We learned so much about this city and it and #39;s history!
One is always worried about the experience one will receive on a tour. Will there be so many people I won't be able to hear what the guide is explaining? Will our group slow us down so we won't see everything in time?
Well, when we booked this tour for April 2017, our guide Kurt, surprised us pleasantly when he told us no one else had booked that day besides my wife and me. So it was just the three of us. Kurt took us in an SUV to Tarragona while sharing his wealth of knowledge about Catalonia.
We visited the stunning aqueduct outside of town before rolling into town on St. George's Day. The main drag was filled with booths selling roses and book, which are the traditional gifts on Catalonia's patron saint's day. We reached the beach and viewed the amphitheater before heading to the ruins of the circus where there is a museum. Kurt provided constant information about the Roman empire on the Iberian peninsula.
As it was a half-day tour, we finished just as we were getting hungry in the city's plaza in front of city hall, where we treated our guide to a lovely lunch while he regaled us with more information about that part of Spain.
I don't expect everyone will luck out and get a private tour for a small-group price, but I would recommend it as it was worth seeing another town so close to Barcelona.
Great trip to a wonderful old town. We enjoyed the various Roman ruins in the area and the views of the Mediterranean. Our guide provided us with a lot of history while we toured and gave us enough time to explore on our own, as well.
Perfect tour for people with a particular interest in ancient Roman ruins. Very personable and informative tour guide Nuria--probably should have booked the full-day tour to do complete justice to the area, but as it happened, the half-day tour worked well with the weather on that particular day.
Very impressive. Learned so much about the history of this area. Beautiful town.
