We had an all day Tour of Tarragona and Stiges with Bart. There was a lot to see with the highlight being the jaw-dropping Roman Aqueduct. Bart made all of the sights we saw interesting by selecting the very best things to show us. He was prompt very knowledgeable (including on topics not directly related to the tour), friendly and approachable. I highly recommend this tour and Bart for a guide.

Description

Spend a day on the warmer shores of Catalonia. Travel to the historical city of Tarragona and enjoy the beautiful town of Sitges with its magical streets and corners. The day ends on Europe’s best urban beach, San Sebastián, in Sitges.

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in a comfortable vehicle and take you to these two locations south of Barcelona.

Tarragona is situated on the Costa Dorada, which boasts beautiful sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. The streets of the city contain one of the most important and best-preserved Roman archaeological sites in Spain, also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After the visit to Tarragona, you’ll go to the colourful and idyllic town of Sitges, situated in a privileged location where the sea blends with a beautiful landscape of mountains.

Nowadays, Sitges, the “Saint Tropez of Spain”, is a mix of traditional fishermen houses and a lively bohemian atmosphere, with boutiques, restaurants, musicians and artists in the streets. This combination will let you taste the pure Mediterranean flavour.

The day ends on the idyllic San Sebastián beach.

Spectacular
This trip was well worth it. Away from the city you see amazing views of Catalunya. The salt mountain was spectacular, it's definitely worth seeing. My family loved every part of the trip. Our tour guide Mauriusz was very helpful and knowledgeable. They picked us up at our apartment and kindly dropped us off at the restaurant we were wanting to go to in the evening.

Informative and fun
Cardona and the Castle were so beautiful! It was a small group of 4 and our guide, Nuria, was super informative and helpful. She knew a lot of history behind the castle which was very interesting. The salt mines were interesting and they provide their own tour guide for that but it's in Catalan. They provide an englidh audio guide to follow along but Nuria came along and translated extra info and fun facts along the way. The tour ended with a late lunch/snack at a lake which isn't on the itinerary but since our group was small was an easy detour. If you like history and getting to know the small town of Cardona then you will find this tour very interesting.

Cardona and Salt Mine Tour
Overall a great day! We specifically came to Barcelona to book a day trip to Cardona and Salt Mountain. Communication with the tour operator was excellent, they were very quick to respond and professional. Our tour guide was also professional and kind, arriving at the specified time (9am). He was also very accommodating asking about car seats for the kids, advising what parts may not be suitable for those who are less mobile, and helping out when some of the passengers got car sick. Unfortunately the day of our tour there were protests/strikes all over the state. Our driver did his best to go around it all to get to our destinations. We had to miss out on the salt mines and entering Cardona Castle. We were able to walk around the castle, but as i mentioned, we came to Barcelona specifically to visit Cardona, so this was a disappointment. No fault of the tour operator as the protests and strikes were not in their control. I was expecting a walking tour of the town of Cardona or maybe a bit more history of the Castle and town, but we didn’t get that. Instead of the Salt Mines we went to Monserrat, which was beautiful and a lovely replacement for the Salt Mines. We were brought back as close to our hotel as possible (due to the demonstrations), around 3:30 pm, so the tour was no where near 11 hours long (but again, mostly due to missing out on some attractions due to the strike). Overall, I would definitely recommend this tour operator, just keep the lines of communication open as per your expectations.
