this was a terrific one day tour. we loved our guild, the museum and the Dali house!
An excellent way to see the Dali museum, hear about his life and experience a small coastal village.
Really good trip. Not a rush like many other trips. You had a little time for coffee or just to sit in the museum. Great guide and the same bus driver as the three countries trip. Well Done.
Great trip! The guide was really good - answered our questions and was very knowledgeable about both the area and Dali's life. The two locations were absolutely incredible. I only wished that we had more time in the museum at Figueres. But I thought the free time set aside for lunch/walking around Cadaques and the tour of Dali's house there was perfect,
This was a really enjoyable day trip. I am not a Dali fan but my husband is and was thrilled by the experience. Our tour guide was well informed and relayed lots of interesting information regarding Barcelona and Dali while we were in transit to the sites. My only criticism would be that the bus was overcrowded making it necessary for us to share the back seat with 2 other adults. It was squashed and the windows do not allow a good view of the scenery.
I made this trip on June 2, 2016 with some friends in a small group of 16 people.
We knew what we will see but we were delighted by their professionalism and courtesy, Feliciano our guide and driver Rafa. I learned from Feliciano a lot about Dali's life and work, about where was born and lived much of his life, plus details about Barcelona. I can say that, this two have made to us an extraordinary day.
It is the first time I appeal to viator.com, but it certainly will not be the last - I think I found a new support in my
This tour was amazing! Our guide, whose name I dont remember...shame on me!!! was very knowledgeable and super cool!
He went out of his way to make sure we get an awesome tour and get a great experience overall
this was the highlight of our Barcelona trip. its a full day with so much to see! loved the Dali musem but nothing compared to the little fishing village. and then the amazing Home of where Dali's lived for over 50 years. absolutely beautiful. our guide Laura was very knowledgeable and gave us good hints of where to go to get a good feed.
recommend this one.
Fantastic tour. Learned a lot about Dali and life. Our guide Feliciano was terrific and really new his stuff and his english was great also. Thanks for a great experience. Karen Moores and David Dodd
A great day out. Our guide Rodriguez was very friendly and relaxed but able to move the group on in a timly but very informative maner. He was able to engage all the group so it was a real pleasure to be in his company. Strongly recommed this tour if you are at all interested in Dali. It would be very difficult to sort out the logistics on your own.
OMG, the Dali house in Port Lligat near Cadaques was one of the highlights of our 2-week trip to Spain! This is such a charming, cozy, pretty house, tucked into the side of a cliff overlooking a lovely harbor. The pool area and terraces were gorgeous, too. Lots of interesting personal belongings, keepsakes, knickknacks, etc. and a few eccentric decorating touches like a taxidermied bear with a funny hat but nothing too bizarre. The only drawback was we weren't allowed to stay in each room for more than a few minutes, but we did have a decent amount of time to explore the outdoor areas.
The last few miles into Cadaques a very popular tourist destination was very slow due to horrible traffic, so we didn't have much time for lunch. I can't imagine how horrendous the traffic backups must be between mid-June and August! Viator needs to allow for that in planning these trips.
Our Viator guide, Henrique, was excellent.
The Dali Museum was a tiny bit disappointing in that it was super-crowded and there was almost no information available on the works displayed, like wall labels, handouts or an audioguide -- or if there was, no one told us. Some of the works didn't even have a title or date! I think they said that Dali wanted it this way no interpretive material -- so that's not the museum's fault -- but Viator should make some arrangement for a more extensive guided tour of this place, as other groups seemed to have. Henrique only discussed a few works on the ground floor of the museum with us then he let us loose to roam on our own for about two hours.
The museum should also have timed tickets and limit the number of visitors.
great trip. dali museum was great, we really loved his summer house - definitely worth extra 11 Euros. lunch in the little town was amazing - the best shrimp ever! and views to die for. the guide was very informative and eager to share, but it was at times hard to hear her, as we were sitting in the back seat of the van - a mic would help a lot!
Our tour to the Salvador Dali Museum and Cadaques was a perfect day. Out tour guide gave us the background we needed to tour the museum with knowledge of Dali's life and the changes in his family during his years as an artist, which helped us have a better understanding of his art. Is a wonderful museum. We ate lunch in Cadaques at restaurants suggested by our guide. We ate at Los Pescadores. Very good. Then to Dali and Galla's house. So unusual but so Dali. On the way back our quite answered questions about Dali, life in Barcelona and many other topics. I highly recommend this tour.
I loved this trip! Our guide was very informative and we really enjoyed her stories about Dali's life and BIG personality! Our only disappointment was the lack of enough free time to explore the theater-museum! We missed a couple of the rooms because we had to get back to the bus. All in all, though, a wonderful, educational and scenic trip! Wouldn't have missed it....a definite highlight of our visit to Barcelona!
Definitely a good trip, if you like art. Recommend reading about Dali a bit before choosing though. At an extra cost you can visit his home in port lligat. This is definitely not to be missed.
I cannot express in words how grateful and blessed I am to join this amazing experience!! And this would not be possible without the greatest tour guide team and best of the best tour guide Lucciano!! Not only is this man extremely knowledgeable, bright and intelligent, but also he was very attentive to all of the members of the group!! He managed to have time to talk to each person and shared a great deal of information not only on extraordinary Dali and his life, but also on Catalonia and Barcelona. We are more than delighted and happy to recommend this tour to anybody wishing to acquaint with this amazing region and fantastic Dali: This tour is a must while in Barcelona!!
This was a great trip. Dali Museum was fabulous. We had enough time for lunch in Cadaques at a restaurant right on the beach. Really enjoyed the Dali house and gardens. Our tour guide was terrific.
Well worth the time and effort. You get to see Dali's art as he wanted it displayed and then to go on and see how he lived and worked....WOW! You will walk away totally impressed and satisfied. Viator delivers once again.
Loved this tour, particularly Dali's beautiful home. Gave a different perspective of a polarising artist. And his equisite jewellery at the museum was a revalation. With lunch at Cadaques and the charming Rodrigo as our informative guide, this was an absolute highlight.
This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Salvador Dali. It was full day visiting his birthplace and museum, stopping for lunch on the beautiful coast, and then going to the home he built.
Carlota was our guide. We loved her. She is fun, knowledgeable and organized. She gave us background on Dali and Figueres. At the Dali museum, Carlota gave us information in the courtyard. Then, we had 2 hours to experience it on our own. We gained an appreciation for Dali: frenetic, crazy, brilliant. After the museum, Carlota asked for our one word description of the museum and gave us info on Dali's 4 themes death, fear, sex and time. Our ride from Figueres to Cadaques wound through the mountains with beautiful views of the valley. Cadaques is a spectacular seaside resort on Costa Brava. We had a delightful lunch of paella at restaurant NordEst. The lunch was a bit rushed because visits to Dali's house are tightly scheduled. Dali's house is as fun as it is unsettling. As Carlota described, it is perturbating. We expected Dali to have an unusual house and we were not disappointed. The ride back to Barcelona is a bit long, but it gives enough time to mentally review the chaos that is Dali.
Loved this tour. Our guide was very informative about Dali and the house and Museum were fantastic. If you love Dali take this tour.
