We were lucky to get both brothers that own this business on the day we were in Barcelona. Peter and Carl were the best guides we have ever had in our decades of traveling. They went out of their way to accommodate my Mother who was in a wheelchair. We felt like they were friends instead of tour guides for the day. They showed us everything imaginable in Montserrat. This is a place you must see if you are in Barcelona. We had been to Barcelona several times prior to this visit but had never been to Montserrat. Carl and Peter were worth double what we paid them for the day. We saw more than you could imagine in one day and we were not rushed or hurried. They knew where for us to sit for the best view and the perfect time to get a seat to hear the boys choir and the Madonna statue at Montserrat. Go with Peter and or Carl and you will have a day you will remember for the rest of the your lives. Peter and Carl can be contacted at DayTripsBarcelona.com.
We booked this tour through the Cruise Line because of our limited time at Tenerife. I was glad we did as they took us to the park gate and picked us up at the end of the day. Loro Park was outstanding. My only regret is that we only had a few hours due to the ships docking time. We all rented motorized scooters at the Park due to my Mom's mobility, it made us all equal as there was a lot of walking up and down all over the place. The animals are well presented and the shows are outstanding. You won't go wrong going to Loro Park. Do confirm your motorized scooters several times as I had reserved ours almost a year in advance and had a written confirmation but when we arrived they had no record of it and luckily for us they had 4 scooters available. Schedule your day around the shows and you will be feel as though you more than got your money's worth for the day. A very clean place with outstanding animal shows.
We booked a wooden pontoon boat with Yuri Kolmakov. We were expecting what a wooden American pontoon boat might look like but what we got was out of this world. Yuri's wooden pontoon boat is a huge sailboat with a bathroom, kitchen and sleeping for about eight people. The day was rainy and cold so the weather was not great, but we did not let that stop us from having a fabulous day in Montenegro. Yuri and his son were so welcoming and pleasant. We all got to captain the boat with the captain's hat on. We sent to the very front of the boat once the rain stopped for a "Titanic" top of the world moment. Leaning out off the front of the boat seeing the scenic area was so beautiful. Yuri can be reached at parasail at rambler.ru. You will have a fabulous experience that will make you feel like a king for the day.
