Fantastic!

I had an absolutely SPLENDID time on this tour! Ramon is highly knowledgeable and a truly excellent travel guide. I very much appreciated his input and explanations to the historical contexts and undertones that explain the existence of specific architectural structures in the medieval towns, not to mention all of the fantastic photo shots. The nature hikes were particularly my favorite part of the whole experience because of the limited exposure to nature in downtown Barcelona. Ramon is also an excellent conversationalist; we chatted for hours on all sorts of topics ranging from travel, to history, to politics. I most appreciate Ramon's help and advice on finalizing my last tourist attraction visits prior to the end of my vacation, as well as for the great restaurant tips. FYI Ramon: I went to La Fonda del Port Olimpic, as you suggested for seafood, and the food was amazing! Thanks again for such a great time!

We arrived at the meeting point and our guide was punctual, very friendly , puts all the members of the team at ease and is very knowledgeable about the Spanish culture, way of life and the trip. The drive from Barcelona to La Garrotxa takes about one and a half hours in a very comfortable air conditioned minibus. The hike through the Natural Park takes roughly three hours with just a few steep up hills otherwise it is more or less flat. Walking through the beech tree forest was wonderful as it was a hot day giving us shade and coolness. Our guide even carried and gave us bottles of water to quench our thirst. The meal was satisfactory and the service was very quick. I would have loved to have more time in Besalu because I really loved the place but time was given to go shopping in the tourist shops. All in all it was a very satisfying day.
