This day was one of the highlights of our trip. The rest of our trip was done totally on our own using public transportation, but I chose this tour for the ability to easily go a little bit off the beaten path. It totally met our expectations and we enjoyed having the personal touch of a tour guide for more insight into Catalan history and some local perspective.
This was an especially wonderful tour culminating with a 3-hour plus stay in Costa Brava at the beach. We had a delightful lunch and had time to enjoy the beautiful crystal clear water of the Mediterranean. Barcelona is a beautiful, fun city, and having the opportunity to visit remote areas via tour made our trip that much more enjoyable.We would definitely recommend this tour.
We went to so many beautiful places in just the one day. Girona and Pals are both amazing, this tour was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. Our guide was also really friendly and helpful
This was a wonderful day! Our guide, Tony, was interesting, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The staff at the tour office were all helpful...the office itself was a bit tricky to find. . The tour began by taking us to the ancient city of Girona and we walked through the maze of streets, , the Jewish Quarter, Muslim area, and of course Catholic Cathedral. Our next stop was Pals, more walking and stairs, but very beautiful On we went to Palafrugal where we had time on our own for lunch, enjoying the beach, The brochure called it a fishing village...more a resort town, but most enjoyable. It was a long day...we did not return to the city until 6.30 pm.
The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed our seaside lunch. We got to Giorna on a festival day and the place was packed. We would have like a little more time here and a little less on Costa Brava, but I would definitely recommend this trip.
Girona and Pals are quaint. Swimming in the Med on the Costa Brava was a highlight and refreshing on a hot sunny day.
We enjoyed it very much! Costa Brava and Girona were amazing, it was great visiting all those historical sights and getting to know more about Catalunya and the Catalan people. It was well-worth it!
It was a good day and good ride. The tour guide was also a van driver. He was fun and nice. We like this tour.
This trip was great! Beautiful! Guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable . So glad we took this trip.
Lydia is the best tour guide you can have. She is so knowledgeable and passionate about Catalan history. Girona is a beautiful city along the river. Pals is a nearly complete Medieval Village. Wonderful old buildings, views of the coast and local shops. Bought some local rice, walnut liquor and pottery. Costa Brava is a beautiful rocky coast with crystal clear waters. You can't go wrong on this tour. Hope your lucky enough to get Lydia as your tour guide if you want to learn a lot about what your seeing and Catalonia history.
Great tour to Girona with history, very knowledgable,fun in costa bravo and lovely medieval city of Pals
Amazing tour...great pictures and very cool castles...Costa Brava was a little bland but Girona and Pals definitely make up for it.
Excellent tour. Just the right amount of time at each site. The towns were all u iur and lovely in their own way. I highly recommend it.
We visited Girona during the Temps de flors festival. Spectacular! Though, overcrowded with tourists and difficult to fully enjoy its sights. We also stopped to see Pals and had a delicious lunch in Parafuguell. Thank you to our guide Ana for sharing touching personal stories of the region.
Guide was really great. Stops were very interesting. Too busy and crowded at the seaside village lunch stop. Much narrative information provided during the rides.
Very nice tour. Veronica was fairly knowledge. Beautiful area and fun to spend time there.
This tour was so much fun and a wonderful change from the big city. Every town was unique in its own way.
Alexandra was a great guide. Off season, so many stores and cafe's were closed. The stop in Pals was our favorite part.
It was a wonderful day! I would take the same tour a second time because there was so much to absorb. Costa Brava's communities were enchanting. I would like to spend at least a week there with its wonderful views of the Mediterranean! Our leader was very knowledgeable.....definitely well worth the cost. Absolutely recommend the tour and the company to anyone traveling to Barcelona. Unfortunately I was under the influence of a bad cold for the entire visit to Barcelona so am sure if it was wonderful while I was feeling like all I wanted to do was stay in bed, then it would be amazing for someone without a stopped up head.
Alex was a superb guide! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and accomodating.
What a wonderful day with an amazing tour guide, Anna! She had a great amount of history she was able to share with us yet also allowed some time for us to explore on our own. I highly recommend this tour!
