Had a fantastic day and our guide David was well informed and made our day memorable with his vast knowledge. All the towns we visited were worth a visit alone, but Costa Brava was truly the Jewell on the crown. Stunning. Lunch and an afternoon swim in this picturesque place will be long remembered
Everything about this day trip was wonderful! Great experiences in ancient cities plus a beautiful beach - how can you go wrong? Our tour guide, the Spanish equivalent of Arthur, was also over and above what we expected. He was very friendly and made a point of striking up conversations with the group when he wasn't doing the official information. Worth every penny!
A truly spectacular trip. I wished it lasted longer. True star of the trip was our guide David. This guy is a born entertainer. Funny, charming and eloquent. My only concern was that at time I felt rushed I wanted to stay longer to explore the location but it is nobody's fault. Catalonia simply offers so much to see.

We very much enjoyed our day trip. Thanks to Anna, our tour leader, and to the other visitors for a memorable day. It was a good choice.
This was a great tour with a very funny and personable guide. The group should be a given a little more time in Pals, but I highly recommend this for everyone.
This was the perfect day trip with Julia as the perfect guide.
After 10 days in Madrid and Barcelona, seeing all the sights, this was the best part of our trip. I'm in love with Pals. Quiet, beautiful, warm Mediterranean breeze, hospitable people. Costa Brava is not to be missed. Tour was great mix of tour and info and personal time to wander around. Can't recommend this tour enough!
This was a very interesting tour with lots to see. Our guide, David, made our ventures even better due to his knowledge of history, religion, and politics. His engaging personality, helpful suggestions, and passion for Catalonia fueled our desire to come back as soon as possible.
This trip suffered from many significant problems. I would definitely not recommend it to others. Our guide was virtually silent during the hours we spent on the bus to Girona, to the other stops, and back again. Even at the places we stopped, our guide mostly just left us on our own with little explanation. In Girona we were pickpocketed and our guide provided us with no helpful support afterward. In Palafrugell we were dropped off to find a place to eat. All of the restaurants were full. Eventually, because of the mercy of one of the restaurants, we were able to get a bite to eat, but by that time we didn't have time to see any of Palafrugell. We tried to do too much in one day Girona, Pals, Palafrugell, which caused us to spend almost all day on the bus and very little time at each place. If all of the tours were like ours I would have preferred to not go on the tour at all, but simply gone to one place on my own that day.
Was not a fan of this tour. Girona was OK. I have no idea why we stopped at Pals.There was no time to do anything other than find a bathroom, which was not easy. The beach at Costa Brava was disappointing. We could have used more direction to make Costa Brava a better experience. Had we known finding a place to change would be time-consuming, we would have worn our bathing suits under our clothes. The beach itself was crowded and too many boats in the water. Too expensive for what you get.
Highlight of our trip! We loved the Costa Brava beaches and town - it was phenomenal!
Unfortunately the bus started making a bad knocking sound about 1.5 hours into our journey. I instantly recognized the sound as the tread coming off a tire, but when the driver stopped, went to investigate and came back and said everything was fine I assumed it was. But after she started driving again I felt unsafe and went to the front to tell the driver and our guide that the sound was from one of the tires and that we should stop and check it out. No, no I was told. She just checked it out and everything is fine the guide says. Well, guess what? Not more than 5 minutes after I said that the tire blew and we were stranded on the side of the road for almost 2 hours.
If I had it to do over again I'd spend more than a few hours in Palafrugell, I just wouldn't go with this company.
Laura was wonderful!! The trip could not have been better. Everywhere we went was great and the amount of time in each spot was perfect. This trip shouldn't be missed and hopefully everyone can have Laura.
The Girona and Costa Brava Tour with Gloria was awesome! We had such a good time and learned so much! Gloria was a great guide. She paid close attention to everyone's needs and ensured everyone enjoyed the day. Costa Brava was beautiful! There was a lot to see in Giorna...but it might have been better to spend less time there and more at the beach. We had a wonderful time!
Really enjoyed this small 20 group tour. Well placed between Girona, Pals and Calelle de Palafrugell Costa Brava. Plenty of time to explore each stop. Our guide was very informative and we had a wonderful long day.
Trip was quite good, we had enough time to cover the places and relax. tour guide Laura was very good and helpful. Overall, we enjoyed this day trip from Barcelona.
Unreal! Joseph was the BEST tour guide of all. Went way beyond. Fun and funny. VERY informational. A great day. Way exceeded expectations.!!!!!!!!!
AMAZING!!!! Girona was so full of history, there was a surprise stop afterwards and Costa Brava...OMG!!! I will definitely go back to all 3 places again.
Josep was a super fun guide, who made the experience personal to travelers' questions and interests. He was able to answer nearly every question we had. Plus, he's hilarious and entertaining. He likes to help visitors who are interested in practicing their Spanish. Josep is enthusiastic, and his passion for the Catalan culture and history was contagious.
Loved the tour. The guide was awesome and kept it informative and interesting would highly recommend
I enjoyed this tour though it took a long day. Costa Brava is beautiful. The weather a bit cloudy, not too much sun so pictures came out a bit dark.
The tour was great. The villages we visited are exceptional especially Pals, very authentic and well conserved. Girona is nice too but unfortunately the time to spend there is limited. At Calella de Palafrugell we had time for lunch and to enjoy the beach and sun. Our guide Laura is passionate and very knowledgeable.
We had a great tour with Arnold. He was very interesting and was well versed in history.
Great tour with good variety of sites. Our guide, Arnaud, was extremely knowledgeable and gave an excellent overview of the history of each area and Spain overall. Definitely worthwhile.
it was great, only a small group and our tour guide Gloria was fantastic...looked after us all day, gave suggestions for places to eat, loved it...
