This is one of the best tours I have participated in. Marc was our guide with Carmen as a very capable driver. There were no other travelers that signed up for the tour on this day so my husband and I essentially received a private tour. We were picked up on time from our hotel. Marc is warm, personable and extremely knowledgeable about the area and Dali. The Dali museum is excellent but it doesn't provide a lot of information on the pieces so it is almost necessary to have a guide to explain the background and the artwork so that you get the complete vision of Dali and don't miss out on the quirks of this place. We visited the seaside town of Dali's home and also lunched there at an excellent restaurant recommended by the guide. We ended the tour with a wine tasting which was a perfect cap to the day. My husband had purchased a bottle from the winery but on the way back to the hotel, he dropped it and the bottle was smashed. Amazingly, when we woke up the next morning, Marc had brought a replacement bottle of wine for us at the hotel. This is beyond thoughtful and kind. I highly recommend this tour and especially this guide if you can get him when signing up for this tour.
We really enjoyed this tour. They helped us with the train information to get to Girona I missed that in the listing, very easy. They met us promptly at the station and took us to the Dali museum. Our guide went through the museum with us to help with our understanding and appreciation. She wasn't overbearing, was very helpful and enjoyable. We went to Dali's hometown and walked around, very picturesque. Day ended at a wine tasting, paired with local items, great.
We only had a day to visit the area, so this was great. No problems with driving or language, able to just enjoy it.
Girona Experience was the best tour company during our 10 day stay in Spain. Carme really goes out of her way to accommodate and make you feel comfortable. Also, she's an AMAZING driver and her van is so clean and smells so good. We booked the Dali/Cadaques tour and we had a private guide named Guisspe. He is a historian who is extremely knowledgeable and it was certainly a treat to have him show us around. The sights were absolutely gorgeous. Loved the wine cata at the end with time for shopping. Thank you both for your professionalism and care. We will definitely be repeat customers and refer to our friends and family. Best wishes always!!! The Penas
