Our guests personal experiences on Barcelona tours
Happytovisit.com communicated very well with us when there was a mix up in the bookings, was very accommodating! We were picked up right in the plaza Catalunya which was super convenient. Buses were clean and comfortable for the 1 hour ride to Montserrat. This was our favorite tour we went on in Barcelona. Beautiful views at Montserrat, and we were given about an hour of free time to go off and venture on our own. Our tour guide Agnes kept us laughing and smiling throughout the entire tour. The wine tasting was not only informative, but was also delicious and we had a beautiful view of the winery from our table. It was the perfect day!

On excursion: Wine, Cava & Tapas Tour from Barcelona
We went on the Costa brava half day tour last week and enjoyed it very much. The booking process was really easy with happytovisit.com. in fact we initially tried to book via the travel provider but there were issues on their site. The bus left on time and the guides (Michel and Antoni) were both very good. the bus was airconditioned and quite comfortable. Michel was the English guide and he was very informative & friendly. He was also patient with my elderly mother who couldn't walk fast enough and ensured he slowed down for her. The boat ride to Tosse de mar was lovely and the island is breathtaking. The only disappointment for us was Lloret de mar where we were just dropped off to be on our own for 1 hour and honestly, there isn't much to see/do there. we left on time as well and overall I would highly recommend this tour.
