It appears that everyone is in Holiday Planning Mode for 2010. After looking at our stats for tours for 2009, Port Aventura definitely comes out on top! Its an amazing park with amazing water rides and shows and its a great way to spend the day with a group of friends. Be warned though… bring lots of sunscreen!
The park has plenty of spine-tingling rides and other attractions, such as the Temple del Foc (Temple of Fire) and Hurakan Condor (at 100 meters, one of the highest amusement park rides in Europe). The park is spread across themed areas ranging from the Wild West to Polynesia.
Second on our top 5, is the day trip to Sitges and Monserrat. This is one of the most popular trips for visitors from our Barcelona Guide who want to see what Sitges is like and to take in the Torres Vineyard and the spectacular views at Monserrat. A definite must if you want to get a taste of what the area has to offer in terms of culture, gastronomy and scenery.
Third on our list is the day trip to Barcelona. For those on a budget, the tour bus is a great option! The Barcelona City Hop-on Hop-off Tour has three different tour routes to explore the city!
See the major sights aboard an open-top double-decker bus, and with over 44 stops to choose from you can hop on and hop off all around the city. Spend as much or as little time at places of interest before jumping aboard for the next stop – the choice is yours!
For those of you who like to do things in style… and it appears there are quite a lot of you, check out Barcelona by private luxury car with your own tour guide. The guides are experts on the city and can tailor the tour to suit your interests! Definitely worth considering if you want to enjoy Barcelona in Style.
Finally, it appears that food is never far from your mind. And in this region you simply can not be forgiven for not trying some Tapas. The range of food on offer is sublime and the restaurants dotted around Barcelona are some of the best! The night tour of Barcelona’s Tapas bars is probably one of the most enjoyable tours available.
You get to meet interesting people in a relaxed atmosphere, all while sampling the best beers, cavas and food the city has to offer! Highly recommended!

Finally, most of the tours leave from Barcelona. Many people who visit tend to combine the city with Sitges in some form or other. Our advice is to use Sitges as your main base and take the train to Barcelona and if you do want to stay over, book a night or two in one of the many hotels in the city. Our favourite has to be the Axel Hotel, the first “Hetro-Friendly” hotel in the world. Its cool, chic and definitely the place to be seen when in the city. Get the best rates by booking here.
