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.
Highly recommended. Our guide Rigardo was very insightful and professional. The tour of the Dali museum and home in Port Lligat was a great experience!
Great tour, well worth the time. Nice visit to the Dali Museum with a preview by our excellent guide Rigardo, then time to go through the museum on our own with time left for a cafe con leche nearby until we left for Cadaques. Had almost two hours for lunch and shop in Cadaques. Everyone opted for the Ligat Dali House tour which was well worth the extra 11 euros. Can't say enough good things about our guide and the friendly staff at Explore Catalunya!
We really enjoyed this tour! Feliciano was a wonderful guide; he provided lots of background information during the bus travel. We were happy to explore the museums independently, and enjoyed the opportunity to choose our own lunch destination in Cadaques. Great day!
Fabulous tour taking in Figueras, Cadaques and Port Ligat.
It was made all the more special by being a small group of 6 and by having a great tour guide - Feliciano.
This was a wonderful day out. We had a very helpful guide and enough free time to explore a little on our own. We found a very good restaurant for lunch in Cadaques.
We absolutely loved this tour. Our tour guide was fun and informative, and she gave us ample time to explore on our own, while still giving us plenty of insight into Dali's life and work.
Cadaqués was the perfect complement to the morning spent in Figueres, a beautiful isolated cove along the Costa Brava where Dali spent his last days. We skipped the tour of his house with just a little bit of regret in favor of spending the rest of our day in the calming bay of Cadaqués. We explored, practiced a bit of yoga, sat quietly on the rocky beach, and enjoyed a leisurely, multiple course lunch with fresh seafood and the best tiramisu of our lives.
Had the house tour been included in the day trip, we would've gone. And maybe on any other day, we would've. But coming up over the mountain and peering down into Cadaqués, we knew our afternoon spent there would be the perfect way to conclude our day trip.
Highly highly recommended.
Tour was wonderful thanks to the facinating museum, sight along the way and the wonderful tour guide we had. Our lunch stop in Cadaques was beautiful - gorgeous little town right on the water. The day flew by and it was worth every penny!

It was another side of Dali, not often seen in Museums in the States. The jewelry was exquisite and found in a stand alone building. I definitely would suggest this tour to anybody who is interested in the art works of Dali as seen from another perspective!
Our tour guide Veronica was great, part of a tour company. Excellent English. Loved seeing both the museum and the city of Cadaques. The mountain/ocean views were beautiful.
Very good guide, knowledgeable and personable. The trip went smoothly even though two members of the group never stopped complaining.
My wife and I had a great time. I think this was largely due to the guide. She was a pleasure. Very informative and really down to earth. I'm sure the other tourists felt the same.
