We added this kayak day at the last minute, and were so glad we did.

Our guide, Martin, was perfection.

We kayaked, jumped off a big rock, snorkeled, picnicked and enjoyed a really great family day.

Pro Tip: Wear water shoes. Really. Wear water shoes.

We were fortunate enough to do many of the Spanish Trails tours while visiting Barcelona with our 10 and 12 year old kids recently. We highly recommend the kayak/snorkel trip to anyone that would like to experience the unspoiled Spanish coastline while getting a little exercise. Our guide took care of all the details for us so we were able to enjoy ourselves fully. The kids loved jumping off the cliffs into the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean and we all marveled at the unspoiled beauty of the Costa Brava.

I have taken many Spanish Trails tours both in Barcelona and in Madrid. This year I took the bike tour, "All Corners", small group Kayaking, and a private Tarragona and Sitges. Each was amazing!

The bike tour with Alexandra, was fun and informative. We covered so much of Barcelona, and by using electric bikes climbing hills was so easy! Alexandra was fun and informative. I would highly recommend a bike tour to explore Barcelona, you see and experience almost all areas of Barcelona, something a walking tour couldn't do. The Tapas stop.....YUM!

Our small group kayaking tour was a unique and special experience. To see the coast from the spectacular water was unforgettable! Jumping off a cliff (crazy!), swimming in the sea, and a picnic on the beach was just "wow". Fillipo our guide was smart and funny. He added so much to our experience.

Tarragona and Sitges, a private tour Spanish Trails created for us, with Andrew was another once in a lifetime experience. Before reaching Tarragona, we stopped at a Roman quarry and a Roman aqueduct. Walking on the aqueduct, more than a "wow moment". Andrew, our guide, exceptional. We covered Tarragona but never felt rushed. Andrew was so knowledgeable. The lunch included with our tour might have been the best meal of our trip!

Spanish Trails, I'm not sure how they do it, but each of their trips are exceptional. The guides aren't just guides, but instead you feel you are spending time with a friend.

So many thanks.....and I can't wait for my next Spanish Trails adventure! I would highly recommend Spanish Trails for any of their tours and/or for them to create a personalizes tour.
