Tapas Morning Walking Tour of Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Tapas Morning Walking Tour of Barcelona was a lovely way introduction to the Bari Gotic along with a stop at an excellent Pinxtos bar! A morning walk is the best time to see this area, before it gets to crowded. I have been to Barcelona before and learned some new things about Barcelona's history. I traveled with two of my cousins who had never been to Barcelona before and they love this tour and learned a lot. Highlight for us was the guided tour of La Boqueria, and finding ending up at a great pinxtos bar. We had a lovely small tour group and a fantastic guide Antonio! High recommendations! We really enjoyed this tour.

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres and Cadaques Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a great day trip to take if your in Barcelona! A wonderful and fun way to experience the works and history of Salvador Dali.

Meeting up in Placa Catalunya needs improvement. Many other tours meet at the same place and it can cause confusion to start out. But once we were on our way to Figueres it was pretty much a very smooth and lovely day trip. The Dali Museum was fantastic! Really enjoyed the visit However, we arrived around 11am on a Tuesday, which seemed to be when many tour groups go. The museum was annoyingly crowded with people I feel were not familiar with visiting museums. The crowds were the only thing I didnt care for. Do make time to also see the Dali Jewels. Well worth the effort and the tour includes that separate admission.
Our tour took us to Poble for the Dali Castel afterwards. I really liked this visit!! Its less crowded, more intimate, lovely and impressive. You really get a sense of Dali's devotion to Gala, and a peak into what I think was a more natural normal side to their lives in this home.
Lunch is not included, but our guide took us to a very nice Catalan restaurant by the Castle that served one of the best meals we had on our entire trip to Barcelona!
My only complaint was that the tour didnt clarify that we'd be stopping by a beach this day. To cap off the day we spent a little time in an absolutely gorgeous little local beach in Palamos on the Costa Brava!. I so wish I brought at least flip flops and something to sit out on the sand on.
This is a great day trip! A must do!

Spanish Wine Tasting in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Fantastic intro to spanish wine tasting! Pa La Dar d'Estruc vinoteca is right on Placa Catalunya. Its located down the alley street of d'Estruc so you do have to go straight to its address. They have a great selection of wines set in lovely little studio that also highlights art. Our guide was Shadia who was very lovely and friendly. We did this wine tasting on our very first night we arrived in Barcelona and it was the perfect way to kick off our trip! Highly recommend!
