What people are saying about Barcelona

It was a great spiritual experience for me. Love everything about it. Wished I could spend more time to fully explore the area. The view is also stunning. The guide Merza was super friendly and funny. Gave us a lot of his personal tips and showed us around the place diligently. As the timing was very tight, he gave us suggestion and options on where we should prioritise and visit.

Best money spent! It was so worth it, everything was amazing, I have nothing to reproach. The views were so beautiful, the whole crew was super friendly and Oscar, our guide, was so nice and took everything into account so we could have the best time. Would totally recommend this experience and I would definetly do it again and again.

Great tour. Plenty of food so come hungry and appropriate walking distance of a "walking tour." I've been on plenty like this where walking distances were far greater. Guide was great. Great stories, some off the path places and start and end location were great.

So worth the money !! Lovely host and the most relaxing experience

Excellent trip and guide. Flexibility with beach time or tours.
