        An amazing day in a beautiful part of our world
        This day trip was everything that we had hoped for and more. Adrian made us immediately comfortable and was so thoughtful of our needs. He was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. It was obvious that this is much more than just a job for him. The van was very comfortable, each stop was interesting, the scenery was gorgeous, and even the weather was cooperative. The original itinerary was excellent, but Adrian’s thoughtfulness in personalizing it just for us made it exemplary. Thanks a million.

        Take the time for this one!
        We stumbled into this trip while looking for things to do in Barcelona and thought it was a great way to see another country we weren't likely to visit otherwise. We are SO glad we did this. It turned out to be much more than ticking anther country off the list! Adrian was so informative of the unique history and culture of Andorra that this was time very well spent. The drive is beautiful and there are just enough breaks along the way that you don't feel like you are on an 11-hour drive!

        An Unforgettable Adventure in Andorra
        Adrian is not only a good driver but likewise is a brilliant tour guide who impresses with his keen and insightful knowledge as a walking encyclopedia, more specifically about Andorra, including the historical & medieval town of Bagà and the surrounding areas, showing us detailed maps, graphics, illustrations, photos and even video clips with detailed explanations all throughout the entire tour. If you are considering him to be your very own private tour guide then do not hesitate, because Adrian bespeaks a delightful personality, he is very flexible, accommodating and displays a unique ability to adapt to your interests upon request to drive you in his super comfortable Mercedes Van to make your trip in Andorra and Bagà truly the most exciting and memorable experience and adventure ever! Moreover, you will not hear a single NO or But from him. In addition, Adrian is an excellent photographer who made periodic stops for us to capture majestic landscape pictures that he previously discovered and knew would be of particular meaning and special appeal to each member of our family! Once again, many thanks Adrian for providing us the best services in all means extremely satisfied and happy.

        Simply Amazing Trip!
        We started the day being greeted at our hotel by our guide Adrian. We can’t say enough about him! His preparation and obvious love of the sites on the tour was amazing. Everywhere we went, we encountered people that he had obviously built a connection with. His insight and knowledge of the history of the region was so much appreciated. We would highly recommend this trip to everyone and by all means request Adrian as your guide if he is available!

        Adrian + Andorra = 5 Stars
        The Andorra day trip was absolutely amazing. We did it on the last day of our vacation and we weren't sure what to expect, but Adrian provided a wonderful experience for our family of adults. It was an awesome way to end the week. He stopped at so many points for us to take in the view and take pictures, and he seems to enjoy the trip as much as the tourists do, even thought he's likely made the drive dozens of times. The lunch stop was also incredible and he was kind enough to arrange a last-minute birthday surprise for my mom. Can't recommend highly enough.

        The most amazing day!
        Our day trip to Andorra was incredible, definite highlight of a Barcelona vacation! Adrian was our private tour guide, and he began making sure our tour would be perfect by reaching out to us, planning out weather and routes the day before our tour. Adrian is so knowledgeable about the entire area of Catalan and is easy to chat with. Andorra and Northern Spain are gorgeous, we would not have seen the nuances without a great tour guide. Adrian drove us to private look outs, made sure our van windows were always clean to enjoy the mountain views, showed us herbs growing on mountainsides, and shared stories about history, culture, language, food, weather. We walked through medieval villages and small towns, stopping at the most beautiful spots. He pointed out architecture and landmarks with fun questions and stories. Adrian took time to take great family photos for us. And he picked out the perfect cafes and restaurants, offered private family time for eating and shopping. In addition to being a highly knowledgeable guide and an expert in the micronation of Andorra, he also gave us some inside tips on places to visit in Barcelona which we thoroughly enjoyed! I can't say enough good things about this day - it was so much more than we expected. We can't wait to go back! I've already shared this tour and specifically our experience with Adrian with friends back home.

        Fun experience all the way around
        We had a fun experience exploring the three countries - Andorra, in particular. Adrian was a fantastic guide in all respects. The itinerary was well-planned, with a good mix of sites and experiences. Adrian's knowledge helped us appreciate the different stops better, and he was creative in finding things our 10 and 12 year-old boys would appreciate. It's a long day, about 11-12 hours, and our family ran out of steam the last few hours. Even then, it was nice drive back to Barcelona.

        A super fun experience
        I had a great time on the Andorra tour with Adrian. He made the day very special for my mom and I. He knew tons of interesting information. My mom wanted to by a small snow globe as a souvenir and Adrian went to a shop while we were eating lunch and was able to find some for my mom look choose from. It was such a fun day! We especially appreciated the hotel pick up and drop off. Adrian was very friendly and communicative. He also took great photos of us!

        Incredible day with Amazing Adrian!
        Adrian was an AMAZING tour guide! This is a can't miss tour!! Adrian showed us so many incredible views along the way from Barcelona to Andorra. Adrian shared so much information on the history of every location along the route to Andorra. We took a ton of photos along the way too. Adrian intentionally located stops along the way where we could get out, stretch our legs and enjoy the incredible scenery! He knew what we were interested in seeing and learning about from our conversations along the way, and he tailored the tour to exactly what we desired to see. Montserrat, Baga, ski slopes and an amazing lunch! What an amazing person to share so many experiences with for the day!! Adrian was incredibly knowledgeable, insightful, kind and energetic throughout the day! Thank you Adrian!!!

        We took a private day tour with Adrian and he was the best! He took us on a wonderful walking tour of Girona and then to Costa Brava for sightseeing and the most amazing paella lunch right on the ocean. Would highly recommend this trip with Adrian. There were 6 of us and we were in a very comfortable Mercedes van.

      Monserrat is amazing! This was a second trip to Montserrat for my husband and I, and the first for our friends. We had a wonderful day! Our tour guide was Adrian from Barcelona y Day Trips , and he was excellent! He picked us up in a spotlessly clean and fresh-smelling Mercedes minivan. Great communication the day before the trip. He asked what we wanted to see, and if we had any special requests. I noted that one of my friends and I are prone to motion sickness. I was aware that the road up to the top of the mountain is winding. I asked him to drive especially slowly for us, and he did so both up and down the mountain despite cars passing us impatiently. I couldn’t have asked for more consideration. He was very flexible in terms of what we wanted to do while we were there. He already had all of the tickets for our admissions for the various activities lined up and assisted us with skip the line entry for the Monastery and the boys choir. We had good seats for the boys choir and very much enjoyed it since we had missed it last August on our first trip as they do not perform in August. We had a beautiful clear day and really enjoyed the views and a hike to the cross and were able to have time to see the museum and the shops. I texted him when we were ready per his instructions and he was right there within five minutes to pick us up at the designated location. Driving there and back, he had wonderful insights on anything we asked and the many sights that he showed us. I would highly recommend this private group tour if you want control over your day and do not want to ride in a bus with a large group of strangers.

      Had a wonderful Sunday private tour of Montserrat with Adrian. In the time of Covid, we preferred the private transportation. As planned, he picked us up from our vrbo apartment in Gothic Quarter. Adrian arrived on time in an immaculate white Mercedes van. Adrian was engaging with our group of 5 adults without being intrusive. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He (and his office) also assisted getting us into a locals’ favorite restaurant for lunch THAT afternoon. Highly endorse Adrian as a private guide!

He was an expert driver and his wonderful personality made the trip terrific. He was engaging and animated and with a great sense of humor that made for a very interesting and joyous day!!
      His level of expertise and professionalism is a rare gem in our experience in travel throughout Europe.

      We truly enjoyed our 5 hr tour with our guide Adrian.
      He was very personable and informative.
      We asked him many questions about Barcelona during our drive and he was very helpful in answering all of them, including recommendations for some restaurants we were asking about.
      He was on time to pick us up at our hotel.
      I had to send an email about changing our pick up location and received an immediate reply.
      Also text messaged us the day before to remind us of our pick up time.
      The vehicle was very comfortable and clean and we felt safe with Adrian driving.
      We had many chances for photo stops during the day and Adrian always assisted us with a recommendation on the best place to stand to take the picture and also took pictures of us so we could all be in the picture. He definitely made the tour interesting for young adults in the group.
      The day was flexible to what we wanted to see and how much free time we wanted to explore on our own at the last part of the day.
      I felt that the tour was priced very well and the right amount of time for us. We did not want a tour that was a full day.
      I definitely recommend taking this private tour from Barcelona.

      We had an amazing day trip to Montserrat from Barcelona. The highlight of the tour was visiting the Montserrat Monastery, where we saw the famous Black Madonna statue and heard the choir sing. The monastery is located on a stunning mountain range with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. We also had some free time to explore the museums, and shops on the mountain.

      The tour was very well-organised and the guide, Adrian, was fantastic. He was very friendly, enthusiastic, and informative. He shared a lot of interesting facts and stories about Montserrat and its history and culture.

      This tour was a perfect way to experience the beauty and diversity of Montserrat and its surroundings. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see more than just Barcelona and enjoy a fun and memorable day.

      Today, we had an excellent tour with Adrian! He was highly knowledgeable and accommodated our needs very well! We visited the Montserrat monastery, one of the most holy sites in Spain. We saw the “miraculous” black Mary figure, and watched the boys choir of this monastery sing a concert. This religious site is located in a mountainous region, so we took a monorail to the top! Our monorail car went up the mountain at a sixty-five degree incline! One cool part was getting to light a candle near the church! It’s my favorite thing to do when I visit churches. I was able to see small pieces of paper that people had written prayer requests on and folded up and placed in between the rock crevices. Overall, it was an excellent experience that I highly recommend!

      Adrian is an excellent driver and extremely competent guide. His depth of knowledge far surpasses the content of this particular event and we were thrilled to be the lucky beneficiaries of that knowledge. He had a Mercedes van in pristine condition, picked us up at a perfect location, where all of us could easily and safely embark on the journey. He provided interesting information about the region on the way to and from Montserrat, and he had a sensible itinerary for us once there. He also told us about areas outside the region and we had a great conversation about Turkey as well. Anyone would be so lucky to have this fine man as their guide! Adrian was generous to offer to answer any questions we might have outside of the tour and I did take him up on that. We hit a snag in a train schedule and I couldn't quite figure out if I was reading a certain element correctly so I sent Adrian a text and he set me straight. We're forever grateful!

      I am so grateful we were able to book this private tour with Adrian as our guide!! In my opinion, this is the best way to see Montserrat, especially if you would like to see the Black Madonna and hear the boys’ choir — as you don’t need to worry about the logistics of getting the special tickets & timing everything, nor transportation. Adrian was the perfect guide - you can tell he is a seasoned professional as he handles all the little details in such an expert way. His stories and knowledge elevated our Montserrat experience! We were lucky enough to ride the funicular and see the ending of a special mass as well. Adrian was so professional and courteous - you will absolutely be lucky to take this tour! He also took some beautiful photos for us so we could remember this day. Montserrat is so gorgeous. Everything including booking was seamless.

      Adrian was a wonderful guide - very knowledgeable and attended to our every need. He communicated in advance, arrived on time, was polite and a good driver and offered to take our picture a number of times. Monserrat is worth a day away from Barcelona, particularly with a guide who is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. He also allowed us free time on our own and on the way home gave suggestions for other things to see in Barcelona.

      Our tour of Montserrat was incredible. The monastery is a beautiful special place to visit; however, having Adrian guide us, share the history, and bring the alive the stories and legends was special.

      If you can, tour the facility with Adrian. Not only for his knowledge and insight but for the very safe private transport and VIP access to help avoid long waits.

      Without doubt the best private tour we have ever been on - Adrian ensured we got front seats to enjoy the incredible boys choir…..A memory that is priceless.
