The tour was amazing. David was an amazing tour guide, well-informed, funny and kept us all entertained during the car journey with his fun-historic-facts. Girona was beautiful and Pals was a unique medieval city. Both have a lot of history associated with it! Costa Brava was just gorgeous!
Love, love, love this day trip! The weather was gorgeous and sunny with magnificent views and subject matter. We came across so many little gems that will forever be remembered. I particularly enjoyed the time spent along the coast where we had a fantastic lunch and sipped on Sangria. It was also special to come across a local store that sold liquer, ceramics and olive oil from the region. Our tour guide, Josep, was so effervescent, animated and knowledgeable, it made you want to learn more. I highly recommend this tour.
We had the most wonderful trip to Giorna and Costa Brava. We had a wonderful tour guide Louda?, sorry about the spelling of her name. This was her first tour with Ana to help her. Louda gave us great history about each stop and plenty of time to explore on our own.
Each stop had great history, fantastic views and wonderful little gift shops. In Giorna we walked to the beautiful gardens and on the city wall for some breathtaking views. In Costa Brava we walked the neighborhoods , shopped and climbed rocks by the beach. We had a delicious luch at one of the local restaurants.
I would definitley recommed this tour.
During my stay in Barcelona in June I booked Girona and Costa Brava one-day tour through Viator and it was an unforgettable trip. Our guide was very informative and friendly and she made this trip really enjoyable. The breathtaking views of Girona and the wonderful beach of Costa Brava are really worth visiting. I highly recommend this tour, as I enjoyed it very much.
Great!!! Would recommend that you either eat at Girona and enjoy the beach at Costa Brava, or enjoy Girona and eat at the beach. Either way, it was a wonderful trip away from Barcelona!
Enrique was a great tour guide. This was a wonderful tour to get outside Barcelona. The first stop was a coffee shop and quick walking tour through Girona. The second stop was in Pals where we were able to explore the old city wall, walk around, and take some photos. The third stop was at the beach for lunch, swimming, and shopping. The only thing I misread, was that I thought lunch was included and it was not. The tour guide offered some wonderful seafood options at our final stop at the beach and we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon there. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us alot of history information everywhere we went. The only thing I noticed, different from other Viator tours was the lack of free time and shopping at the first two stops. There was also not alot of opportunity for bathrooms. The second and final stop both had public toilets which were pretty dirty but use-able. No toilet paper, so have some in your bag in case. I highly recommend this tour. Getting outside of Barcelona was beautiful. The ride home was about 1:45 minutes with alittle traffic.
Beautiful cities covered in a day! The time provided to explore the streets of Girona was sufficient, Pals was a unique village and Calella de Palafrugell was breathtaking. Amazing view while having lunch by the beach, an hour or more to spend relaxing on the beach some swam in the blue clear sea. Highly recommend this trip!
Awesome tour! Our tour guide, Joseph, was very knowledgeable and overall a great guy who made this tour a great experience.
This tour was top notch. The trip to Girona and Costa Brava was fabulous! Our guide, Feliciano, was amazing. He has a huge amount of knowledge about history and the region, and is one of the most professional and gracious guides we have ever experienced. Very professional, well worth every penny!
Feliciano Dominguez the tour guide made this trip very, very good.
Better than an expensive Tauck tour.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take this tour with both Enrique and David. They are outstanding guides and teachers who explain everything in detail. Our small group was also lucky in that Girona was having their week long, annual flower festival when we were there. It made for larger crowds but the streets and buildings were all decorated with flowers and it was just gorgeous. Even though I signed up for this tour specifically to see Girona and the Costa Brava, for me the highlight of the tour was Pals. I did not know anything about this little town and what a pleasant surprise it was because I like quaint, cute, little villages and Pals is just that.
Totally amazing trip. Girona a historical beauty alongside River. Pals is a place which was done up extremely tastefully. And then the final place Calella de Palafrugell. A tasty paella at a Mediterranean view restaurant with a sweet wine. Then a stroll around the place only because the water was icy cold.
This tour was a very nice outing from Barcelona. Although the weather was cool and rainy, we still enjoyed visiting the old towns. Our guide recommended some wonderful restaurants in Pals for lunch and then took us to an overlook of the coast which was spectacular.
I think you will go along way to find a guide as knowledgeable as Enrique. All the stops were wonderful in different ways and he highlighted everything of interest. Girona is spectacular. Game of Thrones is filmed there because of the unspoilt medieval alleys etc. The fishing village we stopped at for lunch was very exclusive and interesting. Worth every penny. Would have missed so much if we had tried to do this independantly
El mejor de mi selección de tours. Volver al pasado en la epoca medieval. La belleza de Girona, las calles de cuento de hadas de Pals, y la encantadora belleza de la Costa Brava ... Inolvidables. Nuestro guía Enrique, un amor muy caballero y con gran conocimiento de su historia.
Enrique was amazing as was the very special day of travel he planned for us! With 8 of us, representing 3 countries, he made sure that we understood what he said, knew intentionally the plan for the day as well as each stop AND he made the possible rainy day, a liquid sunshine day of surprise and joy. I heartily recommend this trip, which is a lovely respite from Barcelona noise and a fascinating look into the medieval past.
great tour. fun day. Our tour guide was fun and, knowledgeable. and the lunch we had was delicious and great view of the beach.
This tour was just amazing. It was by far the highlight of our trip. All of the stops leading to Costa Brava were outstanding, and Costa Brava was just absolutely breathtaking. I hope that you have the opportunity to take this tour with David. David is an outstanding guide and teacher! He made the trip for us, explaining history in detail, and answering our questions. Seriously, this guy is a gem! I would not miss this tour for a minute. Great memorable experience.

Excellent trip, interesting sights, quaint small village, lovely walk on cobblestone path and an interesting tour guide. The lunch in Toni's at Costa brava was delicious.
Our Family had a very good time on the tour with Enrique I think that was his name. We enjoyed his information on the tour. The only thing we would have preferred is to trade some of the free time for more guided tour time. His knowledge was very interesting and helpful.
Magical Tour to Magical Places. A must if you want to get out of bustling Barcelona for a day and go back, far back in time of the Gerona's and Pals' architecture and cobble stone covered narrow and I mean narrow streets. The highlight of the tour, at least for my wife and I, was the last stop at beach town of Calella de Palafrugell. If you have time and don't mind a bit of uphill walking, visit the Hotel Sant Roc and have a bottle of wine and some appetizers and bread in the hotel's restaurant. Make sure to get a table on their glassed-in veranda. The views from there are breathtaking and food is excellent, although a bit pricey.
My wife and I were anxious to see the old town of Girona. In particular, we wanted to see the Jewish museum which was on the site of the old synagogue. The exhibits and artifacts were most interesting.It was definitely the highlight of the excursion. The beauty of the Costa Brava as described in books did not disappoint.
