What people are saying about Salou
The trip was more than we could have dreamed of. The drive up the mountains was comfortable and the scenery was amazing. Our guide James had all the knowledge required to inform us about the history of each location and could answer any questions we had. We were in awe of the vistas. The length of the trip was very good value for money. The teenagers enjoyed it. I would advise people to charge their phones and cameras as there is so much to capture. I will be recommending this trip to my family and friends.
Amazing experience, highly recommend, something for every age and waiting times weren’t very long either, great weather while we were there too
We had a very fun day !! If you travel with teenagers, it is great to get involved with the history of Barcelona, as was my case.
Easy bus service and no queues for tickets when you arrive! Best option over when staying in Barcelona.
The park is amazing, attractions for all ages. Complicated eating at rush hour ...
