Simply the best value tour I have done through this operator! Three completely different, yet complimenting, experiences in one day for that price was astounding value. Mountains, wine country and beachside relaxation with great culinary experiences at all three! Some tours seem to cram too much driving into the schedule but on this tour there were no parts between destinations that dragged on for too long and all were scenic. This tour was a definite highlight of my two months in Europe.

It felt like you needed more time at Montserrat and they told us that the choir plays at 1 pm but we had to leave at noon and were not able to see all the grounds such as the Stations of the Crpss or the top of the mountain besides the choir. Maybe offer only 2 places like Montserrat and Stiges, or Montserrat and the wine tour. However, guide and the tours were beautiful places and a great tour.

Our guide Cristina was amazing! So good to have a young, energetic tour guide rather than someone older. This tour is well worth doing, the only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is that I would have liked more time at Montserrat to see more there, and less in Sitges, as Sitges was nothing special- basic beach town with not much to do except sit in a restaurant until it was time to return to the bus. Still, this was a great day out.
