wow what a day it was so special and memorable. we got collected from our hotel by Juan who was so nice and drove up to massara mountains and went on a small hike to the ghost village. the tour guides provided tons of info especially James who is a true character and gave us a fantastic day ! Will never forget! then we went to some lovely villages for a look around markets and beautiful architecture and to finish off the day, went for a fabulous swim in the siurana lake after another hike in the mountains was just the best day ever. complete highlight do the week for us. totally worth every penny. thank you so much guys for an amazing experience.

Our tour of mountains outside Salou/Tarragona was amazing. We experienced some amazing vistas of the region, and we visited some very beautiful villages along the way. James and Juan Carlos were both very pleasant and engaging, and they took a genuine interest in the tours they operated and the people they brought. I would strongly recommend this company

We had a fantastic time, enjoyed beautiful scenery, loved the cave and the walk up mountain. The boat trip was very relaxing. All family enjoyed , my husband and two daughters aged 7 and 15. Will be back next year ! Thank you Juan Carlos

It's an awesome thing but if you are there only for one day and want to do all the big rides, you will probably need a fastpass.

Lovely open craft. Staff were really nice. Lunch was good too. Nice way to spend an afternoon
