Our year-round, regularly scheduled day tours are all-inclusive fully guided all day experiences, though guests are more than welcome to explore on their own. We cover the corners of Catalunya including the Costa Brava, Pyrenees, Girona, Montserrat and Penedes and Priorat wine regions, as well as half and full day Barcelona city tours and food & wine tours. We also specialize in customized family tours, private touring and small group events. We use comfortable touring vans and our staff are fun, experienced local guides with a deep love and knowledge of the regional history and culture. Average group size in 2011 was 5 clients/tour and we have now proudly served over 13,000 clients over the last 12 years. See you soon! The Spanish Trails team. « less

Our group of 7 had a wonderful 6 hour tour of Barcelona with our tour guide Dan Francis. This was our third tour with Spanish Trails, having used them for a trip to Montserrat and an evening Tasting Barcelona tour on a previous trip. Dan met us at the port with a large van and ferried us all around the... More

We spent a full day with Andrew and had one of the best experiences ever on a tour. He was very entertaining, and extremely knowledgeable about the Priorat wine region and Spain. Andrew knew all the winemakers and did an exceptional job choosing our stops. We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to walk in the vineyards and talk with the experts... More

My experience with Spanish Trails was absolutely stellar from the initial correspondence with Iasa, the very responsive booking coordinator, to the actual tours themselves conducted by guides who are professional but down to earth, engaging, humorous, knowledgeable and with a unique talent for bringing Catalan history to life. Many reviewers have already commented that the tour experience is like spending... More

It was rainy on the day we went so hiking was out but we had a choice of backup plans and did the museum instead. The winery was organic and the tastings were great....bought some wine to take back and enjoy... More

we had 5 days in BCN and arranged 3 Tours and they were all 1st class. The Insiders Tour gave us the layout we wanted of the City along with the rich history and cultural over-view you wouldn't get hopping on-off a site seeing bus. The Mt Village was amazing: The hike, the Mt scenery, the living history of Rupit... More

For our last day in Barcelona 3 of us decided to sit back and relax and let Spanish Trails whisk us from place to place. And was that ever a good decision!
