World class tour: efficient transport and excellent guide, Jessica, in Figueres and Girona legs. The Dali Museum is mind-blowing and Girona is a beautiful and special city. This is definitely the best way to experience in so much in one day.
Great full day. Dali museum was fantastic. Girona extension was wonderful as well. Guide was knowledgeable and well informed. Highly recommend.
This was a truly amazing day. A taxi picked us up from our hotel, and took us to the railroad station in Barcelona were we were met by a guide who presented us with access to the one hour high speed train to spend a wonderful few hours at the Dali Museum. Our guide at the Dali Museum was a wonderful speaker and very knowledgeable about Dali's life. We were given a full lecture of the inspiration and the symbolism of Dali's work for about an hour and a half, at which time we had an additional half hour to explore the museum on our own. Dali picked a theater that had suffered a very bad fire in the late 1800's , install his works. Truly a very interesting museum in itself. Whether you enjoy Dali's work or not, for any art lover, this is a place you should visit. The gift shop is wonderful too.
Excellent tour. Guide was amazing. Transport couldnt have gone more smoothly.
We really enjoyed the day.
One of the best tours we've ever taken! We were literally treated like royalty from start to finish picked up at hotel by cab met at rail station, given rail tickets, taken to rail boarding platform met on train by Jessica, or fantastic tour guide, who transferred with us to vans that took us to the museum. Jessica led us on a wonderful, informative, entertaining tour of the entire museum, which added far more to the experience and appreciation of Dali than we possibly could have gotten on our own. She escorted us back to the van and onto the train for our return to Barcelona. All we had to do was grab a cab back to our hotel. Could not have been more pleased.
We had a wonderful experience using Viator tours in Barcelona. A taxi picked us up at the hotel and delivered us to the train station where there was a representative waiting for us. The taxi showed up right on time and the representative that greeted us showed us where we could get breakfast while she waited for the other people touring with us. She showed us where to the gate was to get the train and told us that another representative would meet us on the train. She advised us what stop to get off of the train in case anything went wrong. The second representative came to our seats and greeted us. She was a wonderful tour guide! She was so knowledgeable and insightful about Dali and his life. What a wonderful experience! We used Viator for another tour in Spain and one in Rome and the experience was great. I highly recommend touring with Viator!
This was a great trip and it all worked smoothly from the taxi pickup at our hotel , to the meet and greet at the train station. The actual museum tour was also fantastic and our guide was full of information and insight to Dali's life. She also provided us with local info on getting back to our hotel from train station in Barcelona. Would highly recommend to anyone - we didn't do the optional Girona tour due to time limitations.
Everything on the tour was first rate, from the cab ride to the train ride to the museum docent, to the museum itself. Wish I could remember the docents name.....she was terrific!
This tour, with the Girona add-on, was AWESOME!
A cab picked us up right on time at our hotel and brought us to the train station. Heads-up: you meet the initial guides outside the McDonalds entrance to the building not just beyond the McDonalds within the building. They gathered the group ours was 8 people for the first part and helped us get on the right train. Our guide for the day then found us on the train. We can not say enough about our guide,Laura! She was informative, incredibly patient, flexible, and funny.
A van took us from the Figueres station to the Dali Museum, where Laura continued sharing all kinds of interesting information about Dali and the influences on his art and life, truly improving our ability to enjoy what we saw. Very soon, we grasped why the tour starts soooo early - the museum got very packed very quickly, and we were glad to barely beat the crowds. Then back to the van and the train station.
Six of our group continued to Girona, which was definitely the highlight of our entire Barcelona trip. Such a beautiful, old town, and the architecture accomplished so many years ago will blow your mind. We hadn't even realized until we arrived that they film a lot of scenes from Game of Thrones there, and it was great to vacillate between current pop culture 'sites' and medieval history. We chose from a selection of affordable restaurants on an open square before at least 2 hours of exploring the city. After the tour, we were guided back on to the train, and Laura gave us perfect directions for catching a quick train from the main station to Placa Catalunya. We were at a cafe on Las Ramblas by 6 pm...
If you go in summer, dress for heat and lots of walking, and you might want to bring some water, though you can always pick some up here and there.
Wish we could do it all over again! And definitely a good financial deal...
Highly recommend. Our guide, Jessica, provided the perfect tone and sence of humor needed to discuss Dali. Im not a huge fan or guided tours but this company was excellent. Again, highly recommend and suggest avoiding Julia Tour Group company.
