What people are saying about Barcelona

Great outing affected by weather -- out of guide's control!

I highly recommend this excursion to anyone interested in casual kayaking and snorkelling. We had opted to stay in Plaja San Pol, so met the rest of the group when they arrived from Barcelona. The communication arranging this in advance was excellent; very easily arranged. Guide was extremely friendly and upbeat. After we got to the first spot to cliff-jump (terrific), weather turned and had to head back. EXTREMELY rare t-storm cut the trip short and eliminated the snorkelling. However, were given a VERY generous refund, so zero complaints, considering this was out of the company's hands. Guides maintained a very positive attitude while making lunch in the rain. Ride back to Barcelona on coach was very comfortable. My only suggestion would be to try to break up the kayakers by skill-level. I would have enjoyed it more if we could have paddled just slightly more intensely. Lots of time to do this on bus from Barcelona to the coast. Excellent excursion!

Fantastic use of 2 hours. Plenty of bang for your buck!

Most tours I've been on in this city and indeed other cities may be friendly and welcoming, but in my opinion suffer from a lack of depth. This walking tour is the absolute exception to this rule and our tour guide Leon blows every other tour guide I have ever had out of the water. This guy lives and breathes the history he is giving out. He has clearly sweated and toiled over many years to build up the knowledge needed to do this tour, including extensive research, interviewing of as many living people (and archival research quite a lot of dead ones too). He has an encyclopedic knowledge of his surroundings but more importantly he relates it too you with a degree of passion, not to mention relateability I have not had the pleasure of seeing often. I urge any of you thinking of doing the forbidden tour to request Leon. You will feel involved and noticed.

Fantastic and beautiful tour with the best guide ever;)

I can warmly recommend this tour. We went with our teenage kids and we all had good fun;) Good opportunity to get away from the business in Barcelona. Here we enjoyed snorkeling in crystal clear water with beautiful fish and jumping from high cliffs. Also the kayaking was good fun in high waves and our guide, Tim, was really good fun and a nice and warm person who made the trip glide smoothly. He made great sandwiches for all of us and we had some good talks with him as well;)!! We can really recommend it and definitely we will come back and do this trip again next time we go to Barcelona;)

This was a terrific family day with Elena!

We booked this tour a couple weeks in advance for our family - all 8 of us, in varying ages. It was a beautiful day - a little windy - but we had a great time, accompanied by Elena on this amazing kayak tour of Costa Brava. The scenery was beautiful, and the day was a holiday Sant Joan. So we were grateful for the kind staff spending the day with us. Elena taught us how to kayak and navigate in the strong winds. SHe told us stories of the area and what to expect from the holiday of Sant Joan as well. It was a completely enjoyable experience, that we won't soon forget.

Great day exploring Costa Brava coast- by kayak!

A well-organized day out to the beautiful Costa Brava, just over an hour north if Barcelona by bus. Groups of no more than 12 head out in double kayaks to explore the gorgeous rock coves and crystal clear waters right off the beach. A fantastic day out and the guides make the whole experience really accessible--and they take lots of fotos so you don't have to worry about your camera/phone getting wet.
