“Private day tour to Girona and Costa Brava Tossa de Mar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We did a private tour with Peter. I booked the tour while on vacation in Spain so it was a last minute arrangement. Day Trips was quick in responding to what we were looking for and very helpful in booking this tour. Peter picked us up at our hotel and is a fantastic guide and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. He was great with my sons and told us some great stories. Everyone now considers him a family friend because we feel like we know him so well. The day could not have been more perfect the weather was excellent, loved the quaint village of Girona and its history along with the gorgeous sights and views of the Costa Brava. We enjoyed a relaxing lunch overlooking the Mediterranean! Peter also took many photographs of our family which is wonderful having everybody in the picture. This definitely was the highlight of our trip and it was a nice to have the chance to tour other areas outside Barcelona. This was a great tour because we customized it to what we were looking for and made the pace to what we wanted. If we return to Barcelona we will call on Day Trips again to take us on another fun filled adventure.

“We did two tours with Carl”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The first was to Montserrat and Torres winery, which was a great 3/4 day tour. Carl was very informative and enjoyable to be with. Torres is an amazing winery and have a fantastic tour. You'll need to sample more than one of their wines to experience their quality.

The second was to Andorra and the Pyrenees. This was a great tour, again very informative. It is a long day in the vehicle and if the weather is not favourable you may miss out on the mountain views, for us we got snow in Andorra. The other side stops are also interesting. Carl is great at making the day fun & captures some of those moments photographically for emailing to you later.

Dear Colin
Many thanks for two most enjoyable days. I am sorry that the weather was not quite 5 star in Andorra - it is just that time of year where it can still snow a little up there. But we had some nice breaks in the clouds so we could enjoy the mountains and scenery during our trip through the Pyrenees.
Take care
Carl

“private Montserrat and Sitges Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We really enjoyed our private tour with Carl. He was an excellent guide. I wouldn't ask for more and I have very high standards :) he was our driver, tour guide and photographer! We had lots of memorable family photos because of him.
He arrived at our apartment at 7:30 am and we went to Montserrat early to avoid the crowds. We had a nice private time with the Black Virgin which we had hoped for.
We rode the funicular to Sant Joan and hiked to the hermitage. The views were fantastic!
Sitges was nice.
I really recommend Day Trips Barcelona! You can choose your own itinerary unlike the other tours that are crowded and have their own set time and places to visit, plus they are a lot cheaper, too!

Hi. It was a pleasure showing you Montserrat and Sitges. You are a really nice family and I had lots of fun hiking with you at the top of Montserrat after we visited the monastery.
I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Barcelona.
Many thanks for booking with us.
Take care.
Carl

“Excellent day tour to Andorra and Pyrenees Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

We took the day tour B9, Andorra and Pyrenees Mountains with DayTrips Barcelona and had a great time. Our tour guide Carl was excellent throughout the day. Carl arrived at our hotel at 7:30AM and we headed out to the town of Mont Louis, France where we walked around the beautiful town and could grab something to eat. We then went to Andorra where we had lunch in El Pas de La Casa, Andorra and walk around a bit, it was snowing and cold so we did not walk for long. Even though it was snowing hard in the mountains Carl took us to some great places to view Andorra and take pictures, and the snow actually added an nice feature to the trip. We really had a nice time and saw some beautiful sights on this tour. I would definitely recommend this tour and recommend DayTripsBarcelona.

Really glad you enjoyed your day in the mountains. You were great company and I enjoyed our conversations about about the meaning of life. Many thanks indeed for writing the first review on our new tripadvisor page - that was very kind of you.
I hope we will meet again in Barcelona some time in the future.
Warm regards
