  • Costa Daurada: Catamaran Tour and Snorkeling

    1. Costa Daurada: Catamaran Tour and Snorkeling

    Sail across the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean by catamaran along the beautiful Costa Daurada. Be on the lookout for caves hidden between the sandy beaches. The captain will drop anchor off the coast so you can enjoy some time swimming. Snorkel around the boat, exploring the underwater life or sunbathe on the deck if you prefer. Afterwards, the catamaran will sail back to Cambrils. Choose from 3 different options: a 3-hour cruise with snacks and drinks; a 3-hour cruise with drinks only; or a 5-hour cruise with a barbecue and drinks.

    Good experience but there was no option to do the snorkeling. It was relaxing and I enjoyed the bath. The drinks were good and the workers were nice but we thought we could do snorkeling (as it appears in the name of the activity) and they stop far from the seashore so it's impossible to see anything under the water.

  • Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ

    2. Lloret de Mar: Catamaran Sailing Experience with BBQ

    Enjoy the ultimate day of fun in the sun with a sailing trip along the Costa Brava. Climb aboard a beautiful catamaran in Lloret de Mar and set sail. Lie in the big net bow area and feel the sensation of floating over the sea while listening to music and having a drink.   After 1 hour of sailing past the stunning landscape of cliffs, caves, secluded beaches and fishing villages, the boat will stop at a quiet spot. Swim in a small inlet, play on the giant floating mattress, or go snorkeling in the beautiful waters. Top off the experience with complimentary drinks including beer, sangria, soft drinks, and water. Return to Lloret de Mar with the music turned up, as you soak in the atmosphere.

    It was an amazing trip. The staff were fantastic, the barbecue with the music on the boat whilst we were stopped was so much fun and the atmosphere on the boat was brilliant. If i ever come again i will deffo be repeating!

During your free time, you can also ride the funicular train up the side of the mountain to get ...

    The guide was great, my only critique is that we barely spent any time at montserrat and the overall tour was far more wine dominant than I'd anticipated. Should probably be renamed to "wine tour with expedited montserrat sampling" but aside from that it was great, I did enjoy both montserrat and the wine tour as well as the food and our guide was excellent.

    Sadly I cannot remember my tour guide’s name. I believe it is Jason. Regardless, of his name, he connected very well with everyone from the group.

    What an amazing day we had today. Our guide Flavio took us to Montserrat and explained things so well. He had tickets prepared for those who wanted to see the Madonna and he also took a group on the hike to the cross. He told us about the museum and I’m so thankful. That museum was awesome with Dali, Picasso, Renoir and Monet. Such a find! Then we went down the cable car and then to an amazing lunch with many courses and variety. This is the way to see Monserrat. My mom came two years ago and didn’t get to see what we got to see today. If I could give 10 stars I would! Thank you so much for the awesome day!

  • Casa Batlló Night Visit with Live Music on the Roof Terrace

    9. Casa Batlló Night Visit with Live Music on the Roof Terrace

    Immerse yourself in Gaudí’s universe through the augmented reality of a SmartGuide, then discover Casa Batlló’s roof terrace during the sunset and enjoy live music while marveling at the views. Choose the concert you like the most, then enjoy 1 or 2 drinks, depending on the option selected, and toast to an unforgettable evening. See a beautiful building by Gaudi, which represents his creativity and different kind of thinking. It is so special because it is detailed in every single way, which represents Gaudi. The building used to be for different apartments but was renovated by Gaudi due to the Battlo family's request. Nowadays it's one of the most interesting and beautiful buildings in Spain.

    The tour was great. There was lots of interesting information from the Audio guide. The architecture and design are really captivating and unlike anything I’ve seen. However, it was the rooftop that really made it. The show was fun and relaxing, and the ambiance of being on a rooftop with string lights in a warm Spanish night…Top.

Was a great experience and taught us a lot about the quality of the wine and the history, but lots of tasting and generous portions! Vivian was lovely and very friendly, had made us want to do wine tasting again.

We took the 7 hours tour with Monserrat and wine tasting. We had a wonderful day and we would recommend it as a great tour combo. Toni was a very professional, friendly, funny guide with a lot of information.

Super professional. Don’t expect too much from the BBQ, it still had a lot of variety. Everyone got involved and it was honestly a great amazing day!

Everything was perfect and fun , they are the best
