The highlight of our trip to Salou was this jeep excursion with Juan Carlos & Jorge. From the swim in the crystal clear lake, to the breathtaking scenery and the friendliness of the guides, it was just such a lovely day. Then we got to Siurana and I honestly think I have never seen such a beautiful village perched as it was high up on the mountains. It was like something out of a story book. Everyone on the tour loved this magical place. Then it was on to Prades, the red village which was also quite lovely. We stopped here for lunch. Everything about this trip was spectacular and do with the price. And when the guides are so friendly and informative it is the icing on the cake!! Thank you
