Greet your knowledgeable guide at your Barcelona hotel and depart in a comfortable, air-conditioned private vehicle to the picturesque and provincial village of Calella de Palafrugell. Capture fantastic photographs of the rainbow-colored rowboats and coves as you gain insight into the village’s historical heritage. Set out at a leisurely pace along the Camino de Ronda, a winding coastal trail that leads to the secluded Cala El Golfet, a beautiful cove secreted on the curvaceous coast.
After a revitalizing dip in the crystal clear waters, venture to L’Estartit to enjoy Spanish specialties in a rustic local restaurant (own expense). Sated, venture to the heart of Medes Island’s nature reserve on a glass-bottomed boat; gaze into the depths of the ocean to see a vibrant tableau of tropical fish and admire the secluded coves that pepper the coast.
Next, return to land to explore the medieval myriad harbored by Pals, an ancient village replete with impressive monuments; stare at the summit of Torre de las Horas, a colossal Romanesque tower, and meander through the narrow gothic alleys on your guided walking tour.
Return to your private vehicle and relax during the comfortable journey back to Barcelona, where the tour concludes.

Nos encanto la Cala y Pals. Todo el tour fue como de película. El poder nadar en las aguas del meditarraneo, y el recorrer la Caleia de Palafrugel, el camino de Ronda IMPRESIONANTE.
Lo unico como detalle es que no tuvimos casi tiempo para comer. Quizas hubiese sido mejor llevar algo para almorzar medio rápido.
Pals un pueblo como sacado de un cuento. Nos encantó recorrer sus calles, subir a la torre, el paisaje de la campiña.
Es un paseo que recomiendo 100
Viator's private tours are pricey, but we've found the three we've taken - including this one - well worth the extra money. The tour was customized to our particular interests in history and nature, we received personalized attention, and we could ask for more or fewer details on different parts of the tour. A very memorable day.
Absolutely Wonderful. We were picked up from our ship on time and headed out of the city. Pablo our driver was excellent. Our guide Vivian was one of the best we have ever encountered during our anniversary vacation. She was vey personable and knowledgeable. Loved the beauty of the coast. The only disappointment was the very small beach area compounded by so many people. We were unable to sit anywhere. Every square inch covered with a body. Personally I would not include any time in this area except to enjoy the beauty. Visited a Medieval city which we enjoyed. Took a boat ride out to Dinosaur Rock after lunch. Very convenient and interesting. Loved the glass bottom. We thoroughly enjoyed our Private Tour.
Very professional drive and very competent and informative tour guide. The senery rugged and panoramic.. the two made the trip. The leg to L'Estartit was a complete waste of time..the town is boring..the glass bottom boat ride full of pushy French pensioners was a flop..saw a waste of sand, two clumps of sand and a distant sardine? we were marooned for almot two hours which curtailed our time in Pals a fascinating village..great trip but for L'Estartit
Simply outstanding. Vivian and Pablo were amazing!! We even booked another tour with them on the spot. The entire day was simply fabulous. They picked us up, drove everywhere and showed us the coast along with the best areas of Costa Brava. They even let us shop longer causing the tour to last much longer than normal--but they were both happy to do it!. We can't wait to take the next tour with them!
This tour was fabulous! Our guide Vivian was professional and knowledgable of the areas we visited. This tour is everything and more that is stated in the description. A must see for all who visit Spain! Thanks to Viator for coordinating everything!
