Reviews & Ratings



  1. Great trip. Tour guide Sonya was wonderful.
  2. This tour was excellent!, we were a small group of 10 plus Olivier, the guide, which was great. The tour was very well organized, we visited several places in each day but never felt rushed. We also had free time to do things on our own, Olivier was great providing background information and then a map for us to be able to wonder ourselves through the small streets in the several very nice towns we visited. Highly recommended!
  3. It was good but very fast paced. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we like him very much. However, I don't believe his English was that great. the French said his French was not that good either. Some of the hotels were not easily accessible for luggage. For example, the hotel in Sitges, even though nice had an extension. We had to send our luggage down a freight elevator. Then, look for the room which was way out of the way. Signage not that good. The front desk was not that interested in helping. Although, comfortable room. Also, the bus was small and the air conditioning was horrible. It was so hot one day, my husband got nauseated. Bus driver and tour guide very helpful.. You should tell people there is a lot of walking and a lot of stairs on this tour.
  4. Good 4 day trip and full of interesting experiences. Probably could do with skipping the winery though, pretty controlled and seemed more a sales op for the winery. Our guide Sonya was very knowledgable about everything and made a real effort to ensure we were enjoying ourselves, right up to organising 2 birthday cakes.
  5. the trip covered a lot of ground comfortably in 4 days. Knowledgeable and helpful guide (Olivier) was good and helpful in several languages.
