  • Sun safety

    It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!

Sergio - our tour guide - was very professional, kind and funny at times. He would explain all the details and even recommend where to eat and what to order based on experience and the resto’s specialty. He was a good photographer too. And he suggested other places we could visit in Barcelona. Overall, it’s a day tour you cannot miss especially if you’re a Game of Thrones fan then this is for you. The combination of places we visited were astonishing. I would definitely recommend this tour with Sergio!

This trip was wonderful. We had great weather but too cold for a swim. In summer you could only swim if you packed a lunch due to common length of meals but such a nice spot. Girona deserves a full day but this trip gave a lot of time to explore. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, nice and I would recommend this company on primarily due to his great service

It was the best tour we had in Barcelona. Our guide Ivan was so nice well prepared, had great knowledge of history, we were very thankful for him to share those exciting legends and true stories. We recommend this tour for everyone! Emese and Attila from Budapest
