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.

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.

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.

Excellent trip from Barcelona to the countryside of Spain. Train ride was about 1 hours with one stop along the way. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept the attention of our 15 yr old daughter. Exterior funky building design makes sense once you hear more about Dali's early childhood. Jewelry tour should not be missed, some very impressive pieces.

Fantastic museum! We also really enjoyed the train ride to Figueres. You are handed off to different tour guides but it all went so smoothly, we were very impressed. The Gem collection is not to be missed!

Very enjoyable trip -- the high-speed train was a very efficient way to get there, too.
The guide was knowledgeable and her comments added to our enjoyment of Dali's art.
Plus, as a disabled person, the museum's available wheelchair made my visit better, even though there were a number of short staircases to navigate.
Thanks!

Great tour! We learned much about Dali that we did not know. Girona was a real bonus.
The local tour operator had everything organized very efficiently and all travel details taxi, trains went smoothly. Jessica, our guide at the museum and in Girona, is a lovely woman who lives close to Girona she really knows her stuff!
Highly recommend this tour.

Well organized someone to meet us and drop us off at the train station . We were met by Jessica who was very informative and friendly and gave us great insight into Dali's art. Museum had many rooms and floors to explore.well woth it.
we then went to Girona and had lunch in the main squarewhere we had appetizer , chicken dessert and a bottle of wine for two for 30 euro.we then proceeded on a walking tour of the town and Cathedral which did involve a good deal of walking ,but was also very interesting

Fantastic!! I have waited almost 30 years to see this museum and it was worth the wait. The architecture, the art, the jewelry, the tour guide, it was all like a fabulous dream come true. If you are going to Spain, you can't miss this. I cried.

This was a fantastic side tour of our free time in Barcelona. Very well organized, from the train station, to the museum and back. We were accompanied by a guide the entire time. If you are a Dali fan, do not miss this!

This was so much fun! Dali was so weird!! Our guide, Carla, was wonderful. She was funny, engaging and really knew her stuff. We were very fortunate to have her. She made Dali come alive for us. And we did the Gerona tour too, walking the old streets and visiting old churches as well as getting to know more contemporary Gerona. What an amazing old city! What history!!

Absolutely fabulous! Laura was a great tour guide and really made the trip come alive. We went with the full day option and are glad we did. I cannot imagine enjoying the museum without her wonderful descriptions and stories. Everything went so smoothly. The Barcelona Guide Bureau is an extremely organized tour host and we are so glad to have booked them through Viator.

My father and I had a great time on this trip and learned so much. It was quite a journey taking the speed train and taxis to get where we had to go, but everything was very well-organized. There were about 17 people total on the tour, and Jessica was a great tour guide. She is very intelligent, speaks great English, and is a sweet woman. She guided us around the Dali museum, and then we took the train Girona, where she gave us a walking tour of the city. It was a beautiful town, and was definitely worth the visit.
