All stops were as advertised. Incredible views of ancient locales. We learned a lot more than if we had. visited on our own. Best surprise was the tasty stop for lunch at a place serving Catalonian food. A bargain for 15 euros! Highly recommend.

Nos encontó a mi novio y a mi. Fue una experiencia increible, es muy grande el jardín, lleno de arboles y plantas de diferentes paises, te transporta a diferentes lugares y una vistas espectaculares de la montaña, del mar y de todo el jardín. Muy contentos de haber ido, estubimos 4 horas y se pasó volando!
