I chose this tour because I would be traveling with my family, and my priority is to be comfortable and receive personalized service. We were picked up directly at the hotel and then dropped off at the restaurant where we had made dinner reservations. The views were spectacular, and even though we spent much time in the vehicle, there were pillows and blankets to rest on. We loved it!

Thanks so much for the lovely review and for sending us some photos! We really enjoyed meeting your family and had a lot of fun! There is a lot of driving time to Andorra from Barcelona, but we're very glad the views made it a worthwhile experience. Take care, say hi to the family and hope to see you again!

We had a really good time with Carl and Peter. We came to Barcelona all the way from Jakarta, Indonesia. We took the one day three countries (France, Spain, Andorra) trip. They were very friendly, knowledgeable, kind, and very thoughtful. One of our family member is in a wheelchair and they were very very accommodating. It was more than a trip for sure, the conversation during the trip was very fruitful too. We are so glad our path crossed. Highly recommended!

Thanks so much. This was a special day for us too. We're very grateful to so often meet such nice people and to get a chance to spend a day with such a nice family from Jakarta was a treat for us. So many nice chats and many funny stories. We're so glad you had a good time on our Andorra tour and we wish you all the very best for the future. Take care and perhaps we will meet again!

Carl and Peter were wonderful tour guides for our trip to Montserrat! They picked us up at our hotel and took us in a clean, comfortable van to the mountain. They were polite and pleasant, and we had funny and enjoyable conversations while they told us about Montserrat and Barcelona. They are very knowledgeable about Monserrat and gave us interesting insight not only into this magnificent place but the surrounding geographical area. They gave us time to explore the areas we were interested in and even took great pictures of us.

We definitely recommend them to anyone touring the Barcelona area. They made our trip to Monserrat the highlight of our visit to Barcelona!

It was a great trip with two brothers Peter and Carl, for being our guide during our private trip to Andorra with their clean and comfy vehicle Renault Traffic.

They prepared everything for the tourist, include spare boots, blankets, jackets, including cushion so that during the journey all of us feels comfortable.

I strongly recommend this tour for those who look for a day trip to Andorra. It was a right decision choosing them!

We had an amazing Montserrat experience with Day Trips Barcelona. When I booked the tour, I had no idea that my family would be treated to such a personalized and immersive experience. The pickup was on time and was where we met the owner/operators who gave us the tour that day. The transportation was clean, the tour itself was amazing and the hosts were so friendly that my two kids listed this specific experience as their favorite of their seven days in Barcelona.

I highly, highly recommend Peter and Carl and their company, Day Trips Barcelona. Peter and Carl felt like old friends by the end of the day, and I will not hesitate to contact them again when I am back in Barcelona.

We have been on many excellent tours, but this was the first tour where we wished the tour guides lived close to us so we could hang out with them. Carl and Peter were so interesting and fun to be around. We had an absolutely marvelous day from beginning to end. It was our last day in Spain, or we would have arranged another tour wherever they wanted to take us!

Many happy memories, thanks so much!!!

What a very lovely thing to say! Best review comment ever!! And we felt the same. Great day and a highlight for us. Sorry for the late reply to such a nice review. For some reason we've not been getting emails from Tripadvisor about new reviews as in pre-pandemic times. Take care all of your and hope to see you again in Spain.

We went with Peter and Carl on 2 separate days - the half-day Montserrat tour and the full day Andorra-Pyrenees tour. It was the best 2 days we had in Barcelona!

Here are the reasons why you should book with them...

1. Reliability
- they replied all our email queries on the same day and were extremely helpful about other information about Barcelona as well like where to get Barca tickets or even buy winter wear.
- They send you an email 1-2 days before your tour and give very clear and specific instructions about meeting time, place and expected weather forecast - even going down to details of even what to bring and wear

2. Punctual
- They picked us up punctually at the promised time which we really appreciated

3. Friendly and Knowledgeable
- they were both very friendly and approachable and were wonderful conversationalists talking about various topics including history of Montserrat, current political climate of Catalonia etc
- They have very good local knowledge and shared some information which you can't find online or in guide books.

4. Going the Extra Mile
- They brought extra sweaters, blankets and gloves in case our kids needed warmer clothes
- They also customized the tour to allow the kids more time to play in the snow

Overall they were fantastic and genuine hosts, you feel like you were taken around by old friends to see places they themselves enjoyed.

Many thanks Carl and Peter!

This was an excellent tour! Carl was a wonderful tour guide that took us (4 senior ladies) on a private tour to Girona & Tossa De Mar. He was very knowledge about the history of the areas & made sure we saw all the top attractions. We chose a private tour so we could go at our own pace plus have a little time for shopping. We got to see Ava Gardner's statue at Tossa De Mar & even had a wonderful lunch at a beachside restaurant. Carl kept us entertained with all the stories about the local area & even showed us some Game of Thrones filming sights. Both cities had a lot of interesting places that we enjoyed seeing.The other tour compaines said Tossa De Mar would be closed for the season & would not go there, but Carl said "no problem" & we got to see a beautiful city that was still very much open to tourists. Carl picked us up & returned us to our hotel in Barcelona which was very convenient for us.This was one of the best tours I have been on & I highly recommend touring with Carl. Thank you Carl for an amazing tour of the Costa Brava cities & a chance to see areas outside of Barcelona. We had a wonderful time with you. And thank you for the fantastic picture you took of us Tennessee ladies!
