Ask for Josef! What a great and friendly guy! He helped us to discover all the places in just one day. It's nice having the opportunity to go to all these places and 3 different countries in just one day. Josef offered bottled water, played the music we liked along the way and made us understand how it is to live in Spain today, especially to these places near Andorra. Beautiful places and small villages full of life. Thank you Josef, see you next year in Barcelona again!
