Owner description: Spanish Trails was born in 2001 as one of the first small group (max. 8 pers.) day tour companies and incoming travel agencies to experience the best of what Barcelona and all of Catalunya, Spain have to offer. 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. We have proudly served over 17,000 clients over the last 16 years. See you soon! The Spanish Trails team.

We highly recommend this tour. In addition to seeing Rupit, the hike was beautiful and the meal was terrific. The guide (Dan) made the day very enjoyable for us and our two teenage children.

We booked both the tapas/pintxos tour and the medieval town/hike to Rupit. Really, both tours were beyond our expectations. The food tour surprised us as we expected to start at 6 and be done by 930PM or so. Imagine our surprise when we looked at the time as we closed the night out with Cava, and it was 11:45PM! It was truly a local and social experience. Well done! The medievel town/hike tour was much more physical that we expected, but we loved that. The sites were spectacular. Highly recommended.

We did two ST tours during our stay and they were both brilliant. We also did a tour with another provider and it was rubbish. Spanish trails are the best. Thanks to Dan and Sam. Well done!

My husband and I took three tours with Spanish Trails in late July early August. We were lucky that we were the only two on the tours. We did a bicycle tour of the city the first day we arrived. It was wonderful. We saw everything and got a great workout! We also did the tour of Figueres and Girona. The Dali museum was very interesting and Girona is filled with a lot of history and ruins. We also did the Montserrat and wine country tour. We did the long hike to see the black virgin at Montserrat and visiting the winery was definitely a highlight of the trip. All of the trips included lunch and we learned a lot from all the tour guides. I would highly recommend this company. They provided all the services that they promised. All the guides were extremely knowledgeable. I would give them more then 5 stars if I could.

We stopped in Barcelona on a cruise and wanted to do something different since we have seen Barcelona before. This tour looked good. After taking it I can say this tour far exceeded our expectations!!

We had a party of 9 so we had to have 2 vans with 2 tour guides. Saskia and Alex were just great. They were attentive to our requests and really went out of their way to accommodate the 9 of us plus another guest that joined our tour.

They first took us to Costa Brava and we walked around this beautiful coast town and we walked on the sand and even got our feet wet. They would have let us swim if we had brought our bathing suits. We then walked to Llafranc along the water. We had a great cappuccino from one of the local cafes.

Then we went inland to a small, charming village called Pals. Pals is a well-preserved and beautiful medieval village. It has small winding cobbled streets with most of the houses displaying window sills full of flowers. There is a 10th century Church of Sant Pere (Saint Peter) but it was closed when we were there so I can't comment on it. We spent about an hour exploring the streets taking many pictures of this gorgeous village. If you go behind the church, you can find some great pictures of the mountains in the shape of a "Bishop lying down".

Then they took us to Girona where we had a fantastic Catalonia style lunch at Can Bosch. We had many different dishes among the 9 of us so we had a chance to taste different things. It was all so delicious. The house red and rose wines were also a nice light compliment to the food on a hot afternoon. The highlight was the Cantalonian stlye of Bruschetta. It was so much fun learning how to do it and eat it.

As we toured Girona some of us wanted to do some shopping while others wanted to do more touring. Saskia and Alex split up to accommodate us. They pointed out best places to shop and items that are highlights for the area.

We have taken more than 170 private tours and I can tell you that from the beginning when inquiring about the tours, through booking the tours and taking the tours, everyone at Spanish Trails was very friendly, professional and helpful. Saskia and Alex are 2 of the most fun tour guides we ever had.

I will use Spanish Trails again when in the area and will request Saskia and Alex again.

Hello Greg,

What a nice review, thank you so much for taking the time to write it and post it! It is so rewarding to know that our tours met your expectations, and that everyone in your 9 people party had a good time. Alex and Saskia are fantastic, very knowledgeable and fun to be around! It was also a pleasure help you during the booking and the selection of the tours, and it would be great to have the opportunity of hosting you again.

Once again, thank you for choosing us!
