  • Full-day trip to Girona and Figueres from Barcelona
  • Stroll around Girona’s medieval Old Town and well-preserved Jewish Quarter on a guided tour
  • See top attractions such Girona's Cathedral and pastel-hued houses huddled along the Onyar River
  • Visit the charming town of Figueres, birthplace of cult Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí

Depart from Carrer de Balmes, 5 in central Barcelona by air-conditioned coach and journey through Catalonia’s countryside to Girona, a lovely old walled city that straddles the Onyar River.

Along the way, hear how Girona reached its zenith in medieval days, and how its wealth was directed into the construction of many extravagant Romanesque and Gothic buildings.

After around 1.5 hours on the road, arrive in the charming Old Town and set off to explore with your guide. Meander down cobbled streets and weave your way into the atmospheric Jewish Quarter. Take in the picturesque houses and squares, and learn how this quaint area was home to one Catalonia’s most prosperous Jewish enclaves during the Middle Ages.

Admire the Baroque façade of Girona Cathedral, and stop to take snaps of Girona’s best-known view — the panoramas over the colorfully-painted houses huddled along the Onyar.

After free time to have lunch (own expense) at any of Girona’s enticing restaurants, hop back inside your coach and travel on to Figueres, where the iconic Spanish surrealist, Salvador Dalí, was born in 1904.

Hear about Dalí's life from your guide, including how the daring artist turned the town’s then-ruined Municipal Theater into the Dalí Theatre-Museum. Opened in 1994, the museum houses the world’s single largest collection of his works, including paintings, sculptures and other curiosities.

Marvel at the fanciful exterior with its crowning glory of sculptured eggs, and then go inside to explore the collection. See highlights such as the three-dimensional room set that resembles Mae West’s face, and gain fascinating insight into Dali’s artistic journey as you roam the galleries and adjoining Dalí Jewels exhibition.

Afterward, enjoy some free time to explore Figueres town independently. Your tour then finishes back at the start point in Barcelona.

Alex, tour guide, who offered a bilingual tour. Fellow passengers talked through the Spanish portion of the tour and one couple had a screaming two-year old, whom they allowed to urinate in the tour bus!

Girona is beautiful and I found to be more enjoyable exploring on my own versus with a guide. Too much time was spent at the Dalí museum...it’s not very big.

Our tour was great. My four year old and I enjoyed the towns and the Dali museum immensely. Gemma made our bus rides very enjoyable with excellent narration in English and Spanish.

This day trip was exceptional, we had a great guide (Christine) to show us around Girona with plenty of time to stop for a proper lunch and still able to meander the streets before going on to Figueres and the magical Dali museum, we loved it..

Great time traveling to see Girona, learning its history and culture. Lovely place. I wish we had more time there. Figueres with Dali, a good place to know more about this amazing/freeck painter. All worth the money and time. Recommend.

Our tour guides were excellent. The tour guide in Girona knew everything about the town. The town was everything you'd expect from a European town. She took us everywhere and we learned a lot, especially about the flies! Our time in Figueres was primarily at the Dali Museum. Our guide taught us a lot about the museum and many of the various pieces within until it was time for us to explore on our own.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable. We covered lots of area in the time we spent. I wished that the language issue could have been solved better. We had a knowledgeable but her English was just OK and kept on talking about " Game of Thorn" what wever which many people could care less about. The guide about Dali was awesome however, she had to split herself masterfully between spanish speakers and English. I would have preferred fro the price I paid to have just an English speaking guide.

The bus departed just on time. We had a guided tour from the very first second that we entered the bus. The local guide in Girona was excellent and very analytical, although some details could be omitted, and she spoke english fluently. The guide in Figueres, Alex, was excellent too, he knew Dali way of drawing and his explanations helped us comprehend the museum's exhibits and the way Dali created his masterpieces. The only disadvantage was that there was no enough time in Figueres and we couldn't see the jools exhibition. We definitely needed one more hour. To sum up, I higlhy recommend this tour.
