What You Can Expect

Girona and Costa Brava Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Pals, Spain

Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle at a centrally located pickup point in Barcelona and admire the picturesque Catalan countryside as you travel towards your fist stop, the ancient city of Girona. Listen as your guide regales you with tales dating back to Girona’s 76 BC origin and then embark on a tour of the medieval metropolis’ rich architectural tableau. 

During some leisurely free time, see the great Cathedral, founded in 1038 on the site of a former Mosque; admire the spectacular Roman walls that defended the city from attackers; or travel back in time at one of Girona’s comprehensive museums. 

Return to the vehicle and then head to Pals, a small city that grew from the foreboding fortress at its center. Continue to the charming fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell and gaze at the dramatic hillside scenery as you travel past Begur, site of ancient castle ruins. 

On arrival in Calella de Palafrugell, relish the picturesque tableau of whitewashed houses and pristine sandy beaches and set off to explore the rugged coastline. Sink your toes into the soft sands of the beach; take a dip in the refreshing waters of the ocean; or absorb the botanical beauty of the cliff top gardens at Cap Roig. 

Reconvene with your guide and group at a prearranged time and relax during the journey back to Barcelona, where the tour concludes.

Josep was a super fun guide, who made the experience personal to travelers' questions and interests. He was able to answer nearly every question we had. Plus, he's hilarious and entertaining. He likes to help visitors who are interested in practicing their Spanish. Josep is enthusiastic, and his passion for the Catalan culture and history was contagious.

The Girona and Costa Brava Tour with Gloria was awesome! We had such a good time and learned so much! Gloria was a great guide. She paid close attention to everyone's needs and ensured everyone enjoyed the day. Costa Brava was beautiful! There was a lot to see in Giorna...but it might have been better to spend less time there and more at the beach. We had a wonderful time!

My husband and I loved Girona and Costa Brava. The history of Girona is remarkable! IT was amazing to walk on the road Caesar Augustus built in 1st Century AD and also see and touch the buildings which were that old as well. Our tour guide was Joseph. His knowledge of the history of The Catalyn area was amazing! His history of his family was amazing in itself! We loved seeing the castles as well as the olive trees. We also loved learning about the Agriculture of the area as we have a farm. We did have a few issues with the bus, but those were corrected. I highly recommend this tour! If I have a chance to go back to Spain, I will definitely want to take this tour again.
