E biking in Catalonia recently was awesome. We had no idea what to expect regarding scenery but we’re impressed with our accommodation, the medieval towns, the friendliness of the people and the crops in the fields

Martina was an amazing trip leader full of knowledge of all the places we visited. It was great to get information from her about everything to do around the places we visited as well as learn about the history. Whilst the city orientations were good, it would have been nice to potentially get a guide for the main cities and see a bit more with them. The temple of the fallen was great to go and see however the guide was very quiet so couldn’t hear her much so wasn’t really worth it. It would have been good to have a few more activities included or some more optional activities available as most days were free days and some additional guidance would have been nice. For example having a set night/time to go and see a flamenco show rather than organising it ourselves.

My husband is the keen bike rider and I go along for the ride, and very pleased I did. It was a very manageable ride through back streets and off road tracks. Riding through the medieval towns was amazing, love the narrow lanes. The app to guide our route worked so well and was easy to follow.
