What people are saying about Castello d'Empuries
We were impressed that we had 3 guides so each group was a great size. Monika was excellent and made everyone feel welcome. Spanish, English and French. We visited 2 small beautiful coastal towns: it would be nice to have enough time for a coffee there, but we had many more stops. The medieval town was gorgeous. We had a long lunch break at the shore before our boat ride. It was a nice ride, but there is not much time in the submerged viewing area. Finally the Greek and Roman ruins. Our guides were very knowledgeable. If you are not interested in archeology you go to the beach. It sounded refreshing. It was a comfortable (long) ride back... I didn't realize how far north we had gone. Suggestions for visitors. .. remember to bring sunscreen and at least a litre of water, although you can buy some at a number of stops. Suggestions for Barc. Holidays: with a shorter lunch time people could have more time at the first 2 stops. It would be helpful to point out washrooms at each stop.
Amazing scenery and history! My full day trip to Costa Brava was a fantastic experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The tour was well worth the cost and the adventure was full of surprises and magical destinations. The time at each location was adequate and although I wanted more time to explore at each stop along the way, I never felt rushed. I hope others are fortunate enough to have Monica as their tour guide because she was well versed in the history, culture and places we visited along the journey. I work in the guest service industry for a leading entertainment company and know quality when I see it. First class all the way. This is a fantastic tour that I will return to again! Highly recommended.
Amazing tour. Well orchestrated and covered a wonderful range of sites. From beautiful beaches to ancient ruins. The boat ride was a welcome relaxation with spectacular views. The opportunity to see fish through the glass bottom did not result in much to see. Yet Definitely a wonderful value if you have the stamina for a 12 hour tour. It was a beautiful yet very warm day, so we were a little tired by the end but it was an awesome day! Well worth it. We already recommended it to people we met and our hotel. Our tour guide, Monica, was terrific.
Our tour guide certainly knew her stuff without reading it (as some others do) and was very friendly. It was a very full day to beautiful seaside villages and the archeological ruins. Too bad the fish weren't biting under the glass-bottom boat, all we saw was swaying grass! Word of advice - please point out (and allow time for) toilets and include info that the steep walk between villages could be too strenuous for some elderly people. We were glad we chose this tour and would recommend it.
We got a very enjoyable day. Places were gorgeous, like postcards. Guides were very professional and knowledge. In general very good organized with not wasting times. We loved the first village; the boat was very relaxing and was nice to see the fishes on the bottom of the boat. Very informative the last visit at Greek and Roman city. It was a first class tour and absolutely recommended.
