Hello! I like to plan my trips out early and have as much detail as possible as far in advance as possible. My husband and I will add a writing research trip for me to the end of a guided tour through France and Barcelona in July 2015 (ends in Barcelona). My research isn't that deep -- just get a general feel for the country, sights, smells, and people of Andorra.
I have the option of staying in Barcelona and taking a couple of day trips into Andorra with Viator's tour (if more than one is needed). Or, I can stay in Andorra and get a bus back to Barcelon in time to catch our flight out.
My questions are these:
1. Are the highlights of Andorra small enough that I could get through seeing them in one day?
2. If so, is there a tour of the country that I could take from Andorra la Vella?
3. For those seasoned travelers out there who enjoy at least a 3-4 star American-type hotel, is it generally more economical to stay in Barcelona or Andorra (would likely stay in Andorra la Vella)?
Sorry for so many generalizations. Thanks in advance for your advice!
