Great trip, Feliciano is very knowledgable about Dali, and a very skilful communicator, he is also a great organiser with all details during the trip thought through. We learned a lot, had fun.
Really enjoyed the visit to Barcelona.
Food was great and seeing Gaudi's work is amazing.
Excellent tour. Tour guide spoke English and Spanish. Setting high on a cliff was fabulous, as was the view of the Mediterranean about 50 miles away. Bus was clean and in good condition. Boy's choir was wonderful. Did not do the Gaudi Tour as wife and I both had colds and needed the rest.
Philipe was a great tour guide. He is extremely familiar with the history of the region in addition to Dali, so we really got two tours in one. All the way to Figueres he described the history of the area and throughout the rest of our trip up through France, what we learned from him about borders and opposing forces helped us understand many other things about our trip. The museum itself it goes without saying is fabulous, and visiting Dali's house was also a treat. We had time for lunch at the very picturesque bay at Cadaquez and loved this entire tour.
An all around marvelous day, with another excellent guide. We enjoy the bus drive portion of the journey in addition to the destination. Girona walking tour had lots of inclines and steps but the city is too interesting to miss. After adequate time for browsing or for enjoying lunch, it was time to meet at the bus for the drive to Figueres. The Dali museum is incredible and just enough time was available to enjoy the exhibist, allowing a few minutes for a sangria at a tapas bar very near to the museum. LOVELY day, a perfect way to see these remarkable sights!
MaryBeth, our walking guide was top notch. We loved the stroll though the city, as Marybeth explained just enough to make it interesting but not so much that I wanted to tune her out. The pace was perfect, and ending up at the Picasso Museum was ideal so as to allow additional time if desired to see more on our own. Marybeth answered questions to assist guests - since the tour ends at the museum. We were delighted with the afternoon. It was a favorite!!
It's a long day but well worth it, even if you're not a huge Dali fan.
Highly recommend this tour - guide was friendly and knowledgeable about Dali, history, and the locations. The group size was perfect which allowed us to really enjoy the tour without dealing with a large group. I would not have seen as much on our own and our guide did all he could to make sure we got the most out of the tour.
Our tour of Montserrat was fantastic - highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, providing all of the background information necessary to make this an enjoyable and educational trip. The weather was gorgeous, which I understand is not always the case. We could see blue skies for miles and miles. The late afternoon tour of Park Guell and other Gaudi sites was also enjoyable, but pretty tiring after a long tour at Montserrat. The Gaudi work is magnificent and well worth the effort to visit.
Feliciano was an excellent guide. He not only rode everyone there in the minivan but spoke passionately and knowledgeably about Dali, Figueres and Cadaques along the trip. He was also very caring and concerned that we find our way around when left to our own devices, exploring the towns and museum and Dali's house, making sure that we would not end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. The only thing I would suggest to the local tour folks is that they use a bigger van. Our party used every seat and it was a long trip and felt confining after an hour. People like to spread out!
This tour was AMAZING! Feliciano was absolutely great! He was extremely knowledgeable on all things Dali! We learned so much and saw so much on this tour! Dali's home was also a fun treat to see! The views were breathtaking as well! I am so happy we booked this all day tour, it was well worth it, and it became the best day of our entire trip! Thank you for a great experience that we will always remember! Muchas Gracias!!!!
Loved, loved, loved this tour! The drive to Figueres was beautiful, and lunch at the charming little fishing village of Cadaques was a special experience. I especially appreciated that our guide left us to explore and experience the Dali Museum on our own, as Dali wished, and did not disturb us or other visitors with a microphone tour. The visit to Dali's home was also wonderful, and it added a unique touch to the entire experience.
An amazing day. Girona was a very old city with an interesting history. We had a walking tour around the city with tome to shop. Dali museum was like travelling through the mind of Dali! We saw work that we were not aware he had available! His jewellery was artistic. The museum had so much of his work. A great day, money well spent
Our guide was just great. Informative, friendly and fun. The tour of Dali's house was equally enjoyable as the museum.
Great Trip! The Dali Museum is like no other museum you will ever visit. But for me, the highlight of the tour was visiting Dali's home, a topsy-turvy labyrinth of extensions set upon the beautiful slate rock coastline that featured so much in his art.
Our tour guide was excellent, very attentive and knowledgable in the more intimate details of Dali's life.
Our guide was very engaging, knowledgeable and fun. Thank you Enrique for showing us such a great time!
The ground we covered, Dali theater/museum, Cadaques and Dali's home were incredibly unique. Not soon to be forgotten.
Good tour! I liked actually going to the places Picasso was at with his family and friends. Our guide, Mary Beth was friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour.
This was a great tour! We enjoyed seeing the different areas of the Gothic Quarter and the guided tour of the Picasso Museum. The length of walking time was perfect - not too short or long. Our guide, Elizabeth, was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy showing the large group around. This tour was worth doing - highly recommend!
Fascinating! Our tour guide was amazing! From our meeting point to the museum we felt like we knew Picasso at some level.
We had a wonderful day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided us with considerable information about Dali's life, the evolution of his work and the time period in which he lived. We enjoyed the museum tour and the break in Cadaques for lunch on Costa Brava.
Veronica was great, so nice and informative. The museum did have school groups to navigate around but I felt like we were given enough time for the museum and jewels definitely see the jewels, so Beautiful!. Do not skip the Dali House it is an extra 11 euros but worth it to see the eccentrically genius fun additives and share in the space where Dali used to live and work. The only thing I would change is the AC was too cold for me on an already cool day, but it does say AC bus in the info so I should have just known to bring an extra jacket. Extra props to the bus driver who safely drove us over a curvy mountain.
Excellent, enlightening tour. One needs far more time in Monserrat and more time to explore Gaudi so I will have to return. This tour gives one a taste of good things to come.
Our tour guides, Marta and Juli, did a fantastic job of introducing us to Gaudi's Barcelona masterpieces, including La Sagrada Familia, Parque Guell, and Casa Batllo. We really enjoyed this tour, and it was very convenient because it included all of the Gaudi sights we wanted to see, and transportation between them, all for one price and no long lines! Great experience!
This was a terrific experience exploring Picasso's influence on Barcelona and Spain -- as well as a nice visit to the Picasso museum. Loved skipping the long line to get into the Museum and our guide did a nice job. I highly recommend this.
Maribell was an excellent tour leader. Friendly, considerate, and well-informed. She walked us through the Barri Gotic, La Ribera, and El Born areas that Picasso had evidently frequented during the 10 years he lived in Barcelona. The walk was longer than we had expected, but we were glad to have that introduction to this part of the city. The museum visit was fantastic! Maribell showed us certain highlights in one portion of the museum and then we were on our own to stay as long as we wished. Our only disappointment is that the Picasso museum prohibits any photos---even none-flash. Compared with the Dali Museum in Figueres, which has no such restriction, which we had visited with a Viator tour the day before. There's no consistency among museums on this point. Otherwise, the tour is highly recommended.
