Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a nice way to spend a day to get out of the city of Barcelona. The bus ride wasn't bad at all, only about an hour and a half. There really isn't much to see in Girona, but there is lovely shopping and lunch options. The Dali Museum was great, but the two hours allotted left us feeling a bit rushed, as the museum is super crowded so you can't move through quickly. (why did we spend so much time in Girona?) Our tour guide spoke good English and was polite. He didn't seem to be much of a Dali fan, but still, it was a great trip. Good value and good time.

My Review

What a terrific day. Alejandro is a brilliant tour guide! Superb English, super-knowledgeable, and charming upon charming. At the Parés and Baltà winery, our host, Marella was such a treat. And the wine itself-- delish and plentiful. Five stars for all.

5-Day Morocco Tour: Casablanca, Marrakech, Meknes, Fez and Rabat

Costa del Sol, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Very uneven. Fez and Marrakech were great. Casablanca, Rabat, were boring. Way too much time on the bus. Some hotels were nice, others not. Hardly anyone on my tour spoke English so I felt isolated. Microphone on bus was poor so half the time no one knew what was said. Beware of the single supplement

Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a great way to see Sintra without the hassle of buying tickets etc. our tour guide was very knowledgeable, English was very good. She was a little pushy about the timetable, but we were on time for everything.
Caiscais was sort of a flop b/c we didn't get out at Hell'a Mouth, just drove by.
