This day adventure was completely worth the money! It’s basically a bus ride to Seville and back. The tour guide, Ceila, provided a lot of interesting information about the country, the landscape, the agriculture along the way. Her English was great and easy to understand. The bus ride was comfortable and the ride wasn’t as long as I anticipated. There is an optional boat tour for 16 euros at the end of the day. In hindsight, I would have rather taken the time to tour the Moor Castle or just sit in a square and eat more tapas and wine. The boat tour wasn’t interesting. We had 5 hours of free time. I was able to go through the cathedral, go up the bell tower, walk up and down the shopping area, sit for a long lunch of tapas and wine, tour the bull fighting arena and do the boat tour. All this was done in low season however (January). I doubt I could have gotten so much in at high season. I highly recommend this trip!!

The tour was great, Sergio was great, very friendly and easy to talk to guide, nice and chatty. 20 min tour of Baga (Spain) a very small old town, 1.5 hours in Ax Les Thames, passport stamped in Andorra and a photo stop just after,1.5 hours in Andorra and then back to Barcelona.

Very friendly, professional coach transfer with helpful tips and information told along the way.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and great value for money

I had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide Jon was very nice.
