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.

Excellent guide full of history and information.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This tour was great - Feliciano was engaging and lively and full of information. I particularly liked the stop in Pals. One caveat: in mid-November, the resort town of Calella and the other resort towns, I'm sure are closed up until April. I suggest bringing your own lunch, otherwise you are stuck with the very limited options available this time of year.

After 10 days in Madrid and Barcelona, seeing all the sights, this was the best part of our trip. I'm in love with Pals. Quiet, beautiful, warm Mediterranean breeze, hospitable people. Costa Brava is not to be missed. Tour was great mix of tour and info and personal time to wander around. Can't recommend this tour enough!

This was a great tour with a very funny and personable guide. The group should be a given a little more time in Pals, but I highly recommend this for everyone.
