One of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. So glad we booked this tour. Nice experience to get outside of crazy, but engaging and fun Barcelona. Our tour guide was David who did an awesome job guiding us during our exhilarating Pyrenees hike from and back to a small oldest town called Rupit. The sights were first-rate. It is not for people who are afraid of heights. It was semi-serious hiking! Make sure you're wearing comfy hiking/walking shoes. Breakfast and lunch were good! The lunch feast was actually amazing. Wonderful and gracious restaurant staff. For dessert, don't miss the ice cream drizzled with their local Ratafia - I still am dreaming of the flavor. Overall a tour well worth its price.

This is a fantastic day trip. The village of Rupit is just beautiful and the breakfast from the local bakery just before the hike starts is good quality with a great selection- meats, cheeses, selection of local savoury and sweet breads and tea, coffee or orange juice. The walk has stunning scenery and we learnt a lot from our guide along the way. The lunch at the restaurant was fantastic- great quality food and plenty of it. We had 3 full days in Barcelona, 2 spent sightseeing around the city and 1 spent on this day trip and it was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend.

Absolutely incredible and easily the best part of our European tour so far. The village itself is stunning, one of those postcard locations. Having spent a few day's in Barcelona before hand it was so refreshing to get out of the city. Breakfast was just what we needed before the hike. It ended up just my partner and I as the other couple had cancelled due to the weather looking a bit dodgy, once in Rupit the weather was perfect. Must say we were glad they did as the one to one intimate experience made it all that much better. Once you get out of the village you really get a chance to take in the stunning scenery. Sam our guide was really knowledgeable and also got to know us personally rather than just a business transaction. At the end of the hike, we refuelled with a hearty three-course lunch bottle of wine included. Even the 1.5hr traffic jam on the way back due to the police wanting to flex their muscles wasn't difficult to sit through. Sam was kind enough to drop us back near where we were staying. Definitely, recommend and will hopefully get to take some time to explore this area in more detail.

One of the highlights of our trip. Our guide from Spanish Trails, Alex, was awesome. The town of Rupit is so magical I didn't want to leave. The hike is a great escape from the city and unbelievably beautiful. We enjoyed the breakfast to start the trip and the delicious feast at the end. I cannot recommend this trip enough

This tour was by far the best adventure I've ever been on! Our guide, Jon, was friendly and extremely knowledgeable- we felt at ease asking him about everything from the Catalan culture to the language to the terrain. Our group was a small one 6 people, and we all got along quite well, even getting to the point of sharing our life stories with each other by the end of the trip. We started out by meeting in the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, and Jon drove us about an hour and a half out to the village of Rupit in the mountains in Catalan. It definitely felt like I stepped through a time portal- the village, which was literally carved into the mountains, was old but magnificent! We had breakfast at a nice little bakery Forn de Pa l'Era, which served us delicious bread, cheeses, and jamon. There are wines and liquor you can only find in that area. Afterwards, the hike into the foresty mountain was unbelievable! If you love the outdoors, you'll appreciate the closeness with nature that you would experience from this trip. The hiking activity itself was exhilarating, and the fact that it was led by an awesome guide made it also educational and even more stimulating. We got to peer over the edge of cliffs, which brought into view the most amazing sights, including valleys, plateaus, and treetops upon treetops. We got to stand at the top of a waterfall as well. We concluded the full-day trip with dinner at one of the oldest restaurants founded in the 1800s, and I have to say we ate so well there! We were even shown how to properly drink the house wine pass it around! This trip is a must-do it's a wonderful 1-day escape from the busy and modern city. I had so much fun, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. It's a small price for the experience of a lifetime!

This was our favorite part of our trip to Barcelona. Martin was the perfect guide, with extensive knowledge of the Catalan heritage. He kept us on track, yet we never felt rushed and he made sure we took in every detail of our beautiful surroundings. He obviously, truly enjoys what he does, and it shows through the way he guides you through the tour. In addition to the breathtaking scenery, we enjoyed an authentic Catalan lunch which was delicious. I highly recommend this tour with Martin, if you enjoy getting away from the bustle of the city for a day, and getting some exercise and breathing the fresh air of the countryside. A truly memorable and wonderful experience!

Wow WOW WOOOOOWOWOW!! Remember to bring appropriate footwear. I thought it would be a stroll but it actually was a bit of a hike, however the views and the scenery was BREATHTAKING!!! You get a breakfast and a HUGE lunch included. We were extremely fortunate to be the only 2 that were on the tour. Our guide Dan went at our own pace and was very knowledgeable of the history, flora and fauna and geological aspects of Rupit and the Pyrenees. Best tour and experience of our time in Spain!!! Do it!!!

This tour was a welcome experience after being in two big cities, Madrid and Barcelona. It's so nice to unwind in nature and be filled with spectacular views of the pre-Pyranees and a jaw dropping view of the waterfall. Martin, our guide, was exceptional. He was calm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. After our hike, the lunch was wonderful as well. We enjoyed the lesson on how to eat Catalan bread, and what Catalan food was. This was definitely a highlight of our trip in Spain.
