An excellent tour to a magnificent museum and beautiful coast. Our guide provided a wealth of information that I wasn't aware of despite copious reading. Timing for each stop was just right. Perfect day out.
This was a great tour, our guide Fabien told us a lot about Dali, Gala, Dali's art and Catalonia. The museum was splendid, and Dali's house in Cadaques was very cute!
one hour too long at the museum
This is the second time I have done this tour so probably that says it all. First time last October with Anna as our guide and this October 2013 with Fabian. Both guides very professional and informative and go out of their way to be helpful. The Museum at Figueres is a delight for fans (or not ) of Dali - something to see and admire with every step. Always quite busy so I would have no hesitation visiting for a third time just to see the bits I am sure I missed the first two times! No time to see the jewellery collection. Cadaques beautiful even on a rainy day. Felt we were 'rushed' through Dali's house this time which was a shame but all in all excellent day out.
Really great all-day tour. Escape and relax from the big city of Barcelona. Our guide was extremely knowledgable about history, art, and politics of Catalunya. Dali Museum and his home were different and fun. Cadaques is picture book beautiful. Fresh seafood and wine steps from the bay...lovely!
The tour was everything I wanted and more. the tour operator was very helpful via email before arrival in Barcelona. The tour transportation, mini van, was comfortable for the small group. Our tour guide, Anna, was excellent. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. She was willing to customize the tour to the wishes of the group.
The Dali museum and tour of his house was great. I highly recommend this tour.
I will definitely use Viator in the future for tours I desire.
I really loved this tour... we were let loose in the museum so we could explore at our own pace.
I appreciated taking time for lunch in Cadaques and enjoying the view.
Completed the day with a tour of Dali's home.
I hoped there would have been more information and anecdotes on the long drive to
Figueres and back to Barcelona.
This tour was assigned to Catalan Adventure ( not Julia Tours) and was excellent. We were in a small van of about 10 people. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The tour through the museum, Figueres, and Cadaques was leisurely and therefore very pleasant. We were given time to look and appreciate.
Our guide Lydia was the best! She entertained us with information as we drove to Figueres in a minibus. What I learned about Dali from Lydia certainly enhanced my appreciation of the Works in the Dali Museum. Going to Dali's house was also a treat. This trip came at the end of our time in Spain and remains a highlight! For anyone with an interest in art or history, I thoroughly recommend this day trip. (And I thank Lydia for the effort she put into making our experience so enjoyable).
Anna was a great tour guide! She was very friendly and knowledgeable about Dalí. She took us on a guided tour of the museum before we were left alone to explore, which really helped us to appreciate and understand the art even more. The Cadaques and Dalí's home were both gorgeous, and we wouldn't have easily been able to see either if we had forgone the tour and just taken a train to the Figures from Barcelona. A word of caution- if you're prone to car sickness, pack a Dramamine because the ride from Figueres to the Cadaques is gorgeous, but very mountainous and curvy. I was a bit nauseous by the time we arrived (through no fault of Anna)....All in all, this was one of my favorite days during my trip to Spain!
The tour was amazing! What made the tour even more interesting was our guide Anna, she started to tell us stories about Dali as soon as we left Barcelona for figueres (Dali Museum). We then went to Dali's house on the coast and she even took us to another site nearby (lighthouse) wasn't on the itinery! Well worth a visit and if you are lucky to get Anna as your guide then you will enjoy it even more, she was fantastic!
I totally recommend this tour! Well worth it! I have been a fan of Dali and anyways wanted to see this amazing adventure! To start at his museum and understand him as the artist then to see his sea side home.
You really felt a connection and a better understanding of his art/person. It is a long day, and there is so much to see so please use your time wisely.
Very enjoyable day. The museum was wonderful and i enjoyed the tour guide's interpretation of some of the artwork. My only criticism would be that the tour guide was too ferocious in her views regarding Calalonia vs. Spain. It was uncomfortable.
A great day trip, really full of many interesting things to see. Good opportunity to see the countryside in the north-eastern part of Spain. The Dali Museum was really spectacular and informative abt Dali's work. Cadaques was disappointing though as there was nothing much to see or do there, whereas the visit to Dali's summer house in Cap de Creus, though it was optional, was really worth it despite the extra cost for the entrance fee (12 euro per person!!!). Our guide was excellent, very helpful. He definitely knew his job very well. On the whole we recommend this day trip, however we consider its price particularly high.
Actually it was not a small group and the guide (Niko?) spend the all our time for Dali museum for his explanations.
