Girona, Pals and Calella-Costa Brava day trip.
It was an incredibly warm day in the middle of winter. What a weird and crazy weather we've been having all over the world.
Let me digress. Pals was a quaint hill top town and we had a yummy spot of lunch in Calella. Seafood of course.
Best tour of my trip to Spain! Rod was an amazing guide - knowledgeable friendly funny and charming,! Girona, Pals and Costa Brava were breath-takingly beautiful! And if I had traveled there on my own, I never would have learned so many things about their history. Lunch in Costa Brava by the Sea. ♥️
We had an amazing day -- perfect mix of exploring and relaxing, tour information and time to explore on our own. Absolutely would recommend!
The greeting agency, staff, location in central Barcelona were perfect. The guide communicated the history of Iberia Spain as we drove 1.5 hrs to Gerona where we visited the ancient city. From there we drove to Pals another restored Medieval city, and then to the Costa Brava where we had late lunch overlooking the sea. We had sufficient time in each place to savor the place, people, and personality of each city. Casual drive home. Great! J and R, Naples Florida
A great way to get out of the city and see the beautiful coast in only one day! Great for people who are short on time. We had a little time in each place to explore and even time to swim in the Mediteranean! Highly enjoyable!
My tour was very well managed and enjoyable. My guide, Arnaux, was excellent would request him again for any future tours.
Veronica was amazing from beginning to end, the perfect time to visit when is not overcrowded.
This was an awesome tour and Anna was great! Enjoyed seeing these very old towns, walking the cobblestone streets. It might be better in September or October as far as the weather goes. Was still a fun and informative trip.
Since its a most famous tour among tourist ... I would just ask you to book this one with your eyes closed.
Girona - was awesome GOT fans already knew this - would have been great if we have more time to explore.
Pals - the unexpected heavy winds made this one a memorable place
Calella de Palafrugell - one of the best spots I have visited awesome place to spend your evening
Thank god I had a chance to experience and feel this place in a calm and silent way with an almost zero natives or crowd.
Guarantee this trip. We had a small group 6 a great driver/guide. Magnificent scenery and very interesting locations
I wish I could give this tour 6 stars! Our Guide I forgot his name.. Ari.. Adin? A gentleman who is a trained historian Did an exceptional job in being our tour guide. As it was 'off season' there was only 7 of us and our guide in a van instead of the usual bus. To be honest it was the best ...the weather was comfortable and the locations were not packed out.
All the sites were accessible and we were given lots of information about the specific sites as well as general information continuously throughout the day- about the geography, buildings and Catalina lifestyle. Costa Brava was quiet and cute. Bring your camera and enjoy the experience. A great day out and you feel like you really had the opportunity to be educated on the history and events that shaped these sites. Once again super impressed and our guide was incredible and fantastic at his job. Thank you!
The locations visited were amazing and the guide was informative and friendly. Our favorites were Pals and Costa Brava.
Three great sightseeing locations in one day, all were really beautiful. Enough time in each place including some guided trip time and some free time. Our guide was really knowledgeable. Highly recommend as a nice day trip from Barcelona.
Of the day trips we did in Barcelona this was by far my favorite. Loved all the places we visited, very picturesque and interesting. Our guide, Rodrigo (sp?) was great.
What a great day out. A full day away from Barcelona. A very informative guide, lovely scenery on the way and then we enjoyed a lovely fish lunch overlooking the ocean watching the boats go by. It was a great day.

Our guide, Veronica, led us on an enjoyable day trip to the atmospheric medieval towns of Girona of Games of Thrones and Pals. Veronica was interesting and informative and her enthusiastic story telling and friendly style kept our attention. We then travelled to the scenic seaside town of Calella de Palafrugell where we had lots of free time to have lunch and go swimming. This was our second trip with Explore Catalunya and we have enjoyed both of them. Once the group is off the bus, their objective is to strike an even balance between independent free time and a guided group walk. This mix works well.
The tour was so amazing!
The tour guide gave us free time a lot.
We had a lot of time to eat and play.
We were given 3 hours in Costa brava.
Love this tour!
This was a wonderful getaway from the big city of Barcelona. The amazingly entertaining and considerate guide, Gloria, made it even more interesting with her commentary and sense of humor. We had a generous amount of time to stroll the fascinating ancient streets of Girona with several highlighted historic sights to choose from. Not far away, we had time to explore Pals, a medieval village, quiet and picture perfect. No other tour buses in sight! Then on to the gorgeous coastal resort of Callel de Pallafrugel where we had a choice of several tempting seafood restaurants on the water and a choice of paths along the rugged and picturesque coastline. Even some rain couldn't spoil a perfect day trip. Bravos to Gloria and driver Raffa!
This was a great day trip and I would recommend it! We were in Girona during a major independence protest, which was interesting to see and experience. We thought that the pace of this day trip was perfect, not too slow and not too fast. Our group consisted of about 20 people I think that is probably as big as it gets. Our guide, Anna, was very personable and tried to accommodate everyone's needs. She was very knowledge and friendly. She definitely made the trip a great experience for us.
I recently visited Barcelona for the first time. This tour to Girona, Palz, and Costa Brava was a vacation highlight.
Our guide Veronica was awesome....She was super well-informed and seemed to really love the subject matter. I'm not a history buff, but her tour guide style, good energy, and interesting story telling, really kept my attention and I actually learned a lot about the history of this part of Spain...in addition to enjoying the breath taking views of Costa Brava....
The fact that Veronica was a Friends fan was an added bonus!
It has been an amazing trip to amazing places in the region with the best tourguide I have ever had - Gloria, thank you!!!
Fantastic tour. Our guide was passionate and engaging, explaining the history of Girona. He also gave us plenty of free time to explore on our own.
This trip was absolutely beautiful, loved Girona and being a Game of Thrones fan really enjoyed. Costa Brava was absolutely breathtaking!
Such a great tour! Sergio, our tour guide was great. He was personable and really went out of his way to make everyone happy. The beach we went to in Costa Brava was beautiful!
