Absolutely the best Ancient tour we have ever had in Europe. Ancient homes from 10/11 century still lived in with some original walls. Scenery incredible. There is no way we can properly describe what we saw or experienced. My wife and I have had multiple tours throughout Europe, both on Cruises and land based. In our minds this is the best ever for ancient villages still being lived in. Our guide,Cam, was also the best guide we have ever had, period, without question. Both for knowledge and concern for the senior people on the tour of which we are two. Exceptional value for the money we paid. On this trip we did 4 tours with Get Your Guide and highly recommend them.

This was a great small group tour of Girona, Pals, and Llafranc beach. It is a very full day with lots of great sites to see. Photo opps are endless as these areas are all amazingly beautiful. Tour guide Gasper was friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with. He was a great driver and took us through some beautiful areas in addition to the places we stopped. Highly recommend!

Very nice! Very nice and spontaneous supervisors. Food was provided. 1 tip: provide something for vegan such as humus spread or something else on a sandwich. Not just a sandwich with vegetables.

It gave us a variety of experience all in one day.From a historic place down to a tranquil coast and lovely beach.

The best tour guide experience in the whole Barcelona.
