What people are saying about Salou

Ab Fab day out to the Tarragona Hills villages

We had a great day out with Daan, at the Tarragona Hills villages, very knowledgeable and informative, lots of time to look round and we were lucky as the village we were in for lunch had a flower festival, lots of photo opportunities. Unfortunately the waterfall was out of water, but attractive scenery and walk to the waterfall, across an interesting stream bed, if you want to see water need to go when it has rained a lot. The views of the hills were very impressive, would do it again. Daan also arrived 10 minutes early and we were out for over 6 hours.

We really enjoyed this day out, guides were super and what a lovely way to see some of Spain that you wouldn’t normally get to see. We hadn’t biked in a long number of years but no problem .. full training and practice ahead of time ...
