To start off the review for the tour , Manu our guide you're a legend, Thank you for making the day tour so fun. I went to a lot of tours but this one was by far the best, fun and friendly guided gave a bit of spice and humour to the history of all the places we visited. We were given all the historic information we needed to know, best recommendations for food cafes, treats or where to go in general and enough time to go around, shop or just chill, however one pleases. A day to remember with great vibes along the road :))

It’s the best one that we had among our activities. Girona is so beautiful as well as Costa Brava, if only we know we should have added atleast 1 more day to stay in Costa Brava. Aleix is a jolly guide that makes our trip enjoyable, it’s also nice to have a small group tour like this because you’ve got to meet different people from different walks of life.

Loved our trip with Senny! He contacted us ahead of time with our pick up and asked if we needed any booster seats for our child. He was also a very knowledgeable and safe driver. Would definitely recommend this tour to others who want to see areas outside of Barcelona! Thank you for making sure we had a wonderful experience!

Senny was the best! Great history lessons and very enthusiastic. The views at costa brava were perfect

Fantastic day with Aleix! Highly recommend this trip.
