What To Expect

Depart from a central Barcelona, and relax during a scenic journey toward Baga in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Marvel at the majestic perimeter of rocky peaks in the Cadi-Moixero National Park as you arrive in Baga. Tour the village and it's medieval church and square, before enjoying you some free time to explore alone.  

Traverse the French border on route to your next stop, the charming ancient spa town of Ax-Les-Thermes. After your guide recommends some of the best natural fountains to visit and soak your feet in, indulge in some free time to enjoy the healing waters and browse the local artisan shops.

Next, meet back at the bus to head toward Andorra. Travel through the beautiful Pyrenees Alps and cross the Pas de la Casa, a high-mountain pass with multiple photo opportunities.

Descend into Andorra, stopping at a typical mountain valley where you get a glimpse of stone huts dotting the mountainside, a Roman church, and embark on a short hike to experience the landscape.  

From here, continue on to Andorra de la Vella, Andorra's charming capital. Explore the city and indulge in some duty-free shopping before climbing aboard the minivan for the return trip to Barcelona.

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at the departure point.

Carlos is the ideal guide. He’s passionate, knowledgeable and very kind. The bus was great and the locations were beautiful and uniquely different from each other. It’s not everyday you get an opportunity to visit a medieval Spanish city, the French Pyrenees mountains, and a remote European city 7,000 feet above sea level. I’d definitely do it again. Thank you kindly.

Too short stays at each stops
Han_L, Sept 2023
Too short stays at each stops. More like rest stops. Not worth the trip. I do not recommend it. Too much sitting on the bus
Amazing tour
John_H, Sept 2023
What a wonderful tour. Never knew the areas of France, Andorra, and Spain were so beautiful. Our guide, Robert, was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Fabulous Day
Diana_N, Sept 2023
My trip leader for sure!!!! He kept us engaged AND entertained! He was knowledgeable and aware of time. It was wonderful!!!
Day trip from Barcelona
Samanthasaidyfye, Sept 2023
The day trip from Barcelona was great. It was exactly as explained in the description. We were able to see three countries in a day and our guide Arnau was great.
Not my cup of tea
Donald_M, Sept 2023
It was a lot of riding in the bus but I knew that before I booked the tour. The tour guide was very nice and very helpful and the scenery of the Pyrenees mountains was beautiful. Both the stops in Baga and Ax-Les Thermes were disappointing. Not much to see and a lot of the shops and stores were closed. The tour guide said that because the shops are open on the weekend they are closed on Mondays. Andorra was open an lively but it’s a very modern city without much charm. However I can say that I went there and got my passport stamped. Other people on the tour seemed to enjoy the tour so maybe it was just not my cup of tea.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hi, I am not sorry we didn't brew your cup of tea as you like it. We appreciate that some people like their tea with milk, and some prefer not. Then there's the added dilemma of not knowing whether to put the milk in first or last! Seriously though, I am very sorry the tour was not to you liking, but as you said, the others on the tour really liked it. I hope you will join us for another day. By the way, have you tried our coffee? Best regards, Robert
Good explanation of the...
JOHN_F, Sept 2023
Good explanation of the scenery. Too small a van for nine adults on such a long trip. Washroom stops were unclean with no toilet paper. Disappointing for the price.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hello, I am sorry you didn't have the best day. We try very hard to leave you with the option of clean bathrooms, but that is out of our control to be honest. Re the minivan, we appreciate that feedback, and will look at what we do in thje future. Best regards, Robert
Lovely trip
Khanyisile_H, Sept 2023
Great experience. Our guide David was helpful and entertaining. You get to see a lot in a short space of time and learn the history of the neighborhood/bordering countries.
Good day out
Chris_K, Sept 2023
Enjoyed breakfast in Baga. Really liked Aix le Thermes and would have liked more time there. Andorra a disapointment, just shopping, although the scenery was nice
Interesting itinerary. VERY long day.
steven, Sept 2023
The guide, Mark, was excellent with one exception: he needed a shower. He arrived at the beginning of the day wearing a dirty shirt and with immediately noticeable body odor. The mini-bus seats are quite cramped as it is a two-by-two configuration, rather than one-by-two. Our bus had some trouble with a/c as it climbed to the higher altitudes. The bus driver and the guide both spoke excellent English and exhibited genuine kindness to the tour members (21 on our tour). One of our tour members became lost in Andorra la Vella. The guide and driver spent 45 minutes helping his wife locate him. He would have been in a terrible predicament had they decided to leave as Andorra is three hours from Barcelona with very inconvenient means of public transportation. Some tour members were miffed that we arrived so late because of the lost man, but I believe it was the right thing to do.
Amazing history....
Kevin_K, Sept 2023
Amazing history. Beautiful views and architecture. Tour guide Nu was great. Andorra shopping was fun.
A good way to see different places but too rushed
Brenda_G, Sept 2023
The only complaint I have about this tour is that there is not enough time in each place. I understand that it takes awhile to get from one place to the next which makes it a long day and a lot of time of the bus. The guide and the driver did a good job of giving us a break every 1.5 hours but when you finally get to the town you are really rushed. There is only time to do one thing, either get food or explore the city. We just felt really rushed and couldn't enjoy where we were.
Fun to see the small town/cities but a lot of time on the bus
Richard_M, Sept 2023
The mountains were nice to see as were the three small towns. However the amount of time riding on the bus was too long for the relatively short periods of time we had to see the towns.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hello, Thank you for the feedback. I am afraid that this is unavoidable if we want to see three countries in one day. We do our best to stop as often and as long as we can. I hope you will trust us for another tour somewhere different one day. Best regards, Robert
Amazing Megan, Amazing trip
Abdullah_Q, Sept 2023
Excellent guide and amazing trip. Megan, wow, she is really nice. The tour, the bus, the time spent, the organization, everything went well and I liked every moment in this amazing trip.
Three country treat
RonaldF_C, Sept 2023
The drive, the scenery, and our driver-guide, Mark was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and so friendly. It wouldn't have been as memorable without him.
xiaoli_y, Sept 2023
Andora, is very interesting. Lots of visitors as it is a tourist and shopping heaven. Also good to know this country is a tax heaven too. No wonder all the billionaires take advantage.
3 country trip
Jay_G, Sept 2023
Good scenery. Nice stop in small town. Only shopping in Andorra. If you want to say you have been to Andorra it is worth it.
Sick views and a sick ride literally

Hidden gem among day tours from Barcelona!!!
Priyank_K, Sept 2023
This trip was amazing, our tour guide Megan was amazing and driver was very friendly as well. We thoroughly enjoyed this and this tour was way better than what we expected.
Fras_A, Sept 2023
The chance of visiting 3 countries in one day so amazing especially to know the history of the every city we visited , unfortunately the time we spent on Andora was not enough to discover the place or to do shopping so if you’re plan to discover Andorra don’t choose this trip
