Wonderful trip along the Costa Brava
Edward_B, Nov 2022
Really enjoyed this trip along the costa Brava with a fantastic tour guide who was really helpful. Walking part of the tour through the old village was the highlight and even with our son, he enjoyed leaning about the history.
Rugged Beauty

Wonderful beaches amongst the rocky cliffs. Boat ride was great and provided a different perspective of the rugged beauty.
Wonderful day
Haley_M, Sept 2022
Awesome day trip in Costa Brava. All places visited are great but the best part is the boat trip. Guides are very nice, knowledgeable and helpful. Recommended to add this trip during your stay in Barcelona.
A day well spent.
Mihika_J, Sept 2022
An excellently organised day trip. I travelled with my family and it was the perfect way to spend a day exploring Costa Brava. The boat ride from Tossa de Mar to Lloret de Mar was the highlight! Highly recommend this trip for families. Pol was super funny, witty and shared a lot of knowledge about the local culture and attractions.
Great slice of Spanish coast

Costa Brava - a must see!
Maezy_B, Aug 2022
Amazing day! Costa Brava was beautiful and the entire day was super user friendly. Just the right amount of free time and structured tour and the tour guides were very informative and fun. Would do this trip again in a heart beat.
Bravo to Costa Brava
Hien_C, Aug 2022
Great tour!! Very insightful, beautiful, and fun. Our guide was great and made our experience more enjoyable. Tossa de Mar was an unbelievable town and we had a lots of fun - only wished we had a little more time there.
Wonderful tour.
Martha_A, Aug 2022
Our guide Paul was amazing. He was very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. The tour provided a good balance of time on your own and time with the guide. Our favorite spot was the walled city of Tossa de Mar. All in all it was a great value for our money.
Tour operators were super...
Martha_B, Aug 2022
Tour operators were super friendly, knowledgeable, and patient (I was travelling with my mom who had a foot fracture). I agree with other reviewers that too much time was spent at first stop and the boat ride is a little long (offers nice views though). Costa de Mar is beautiful!
Very well organised, good...
Tamar_F, Jul 2022

A good way to get a feel for Costa Brava
Brian_W, Jul 2022
The tour was well conducted and leisurely looked at this part of the Costa Brava. The tour guides gave plenty of clear information. There was a good amount if free time.

Perfect little day trip!
Meagan_M, Jun 2022
What a relaxing day! I really enjoyed this trip and Monica was one of the nicest tour guides ever. There were around 40 or so people on the tour and she made sure to chat with every person. There were options on this trip to stick with the group for walking tours or do your own thing, like go to the beach. Great little day trip! Highly recommend!
Fantastic day in Southern Spain
Kirk_F, Jun 2022
This tour was the highlight of our trip and we took quite a few day trips. Our guide Monica was excellent! Kept the tour on time and was very likable and responsible. The first stop in Lloret de Mar was quite nice. We took a stroll along the beach but instead of venturing into town more, we walked along the rocky coastal part and enjoyed great views, then had time for a drink along the boardwalk. The boat trip was next and we loved it. Started off foggy, but that broke and we enjoyed great views of the Costa Brava. The third stop at Tossa de Mar was our favorite. Wow, what a great town! Make sure you visit the medieval walled section which is picture perfect. The amount of time given on your own for this cruise is fantastic! Loved the free time and recommend this cruise wholeheartedly.
Overall, a fun day.
Kofoed_F, Jun 2022
Overall, it was a fun day. The tour guide, Monica, was fantastic and personable and did an excellent job. I just don’t love large group tours. The stop in Lloret de mar was ok, very touristy town, not my favorite. The boat ride along the coast was beautiful and I loved Tossa de Mar. Such a fun little town. The medieval village was really fun to tour.

Great trip
Aurlie_B, May 2022
Wonderful day trip! We had an amazing guide that was very insightful and well-learned. We had some free time to explore the towns on our own. At Tossa de Mar, you must visit the old town. Incredible experience! I would definitely recommend if you want to discover the beautiful Costa Brava!
Relaxing Boat Ride from Costa Brava to Tosso de Mar
Vanessa_B, May 2022
Costa Brava was unfortunately filled with fog on the morning we arrived, so we could not soak in the beauty. The shops in the area appeared to have a lot of items that looked used and the owners followed you around practically begging you to buy something. However, the boat ride to Tosso de Mar was quite relaxing and it was lovely to stop to see the fish in the clear blue water. Tosso de Mar was also beautiful from atop the tower and in the medieval town. I enjoyed the free time we had relaxing under a tree outlooking the water; however, my friend did some shopping and found the locals to be quite rude.
The tour guide Monica was very helpful
Andy_H, May 2022
I enjoyed this tour. I got so much more than what I paid for. The tour guide was very attentive and helpful.
