What To Expect

Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned minivan and set off on your day trip. As you travel, listen as your guide shares tales of Salvador Dalí’s life, and gaze out over the passing countryside and villages.

After a while, arrive in Figueres, Dalí’s birthplace and home to his famous Dalí Theatre-Museum. See the house where Dalí was born in 1904, and then continue to the museum. Home to a vast range of Dalí’s creations, it offers a unique insight into his works and artistic vision.

Marvel at the exterior with its giant, rooftop egg sculptures, and use your included ticket to skip any admission lines and head straight inside. Enjoy time to explore at leisure, and view everything from Dalí’s early experiments with cubism to later surrealist works such as the Galatea of the Spheres, and the famed Mae West Room installation.

Having explored here, reconvene with your guide and continue your tour as shown below depending on the time of year. For more details, see the Itinerary section.

Winter: Cadaqués and Port Lligat (September 1 - June 30):
Depart Figueres and make the scenic drive to Cadaqués. Admire this pretty seaside Costa Brava village, and get free time for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant. Next, travel to Port Lligat, a coastal village where Dalí built a private retreat, now converted into a museum. Head inside (own expense) to explore, and after a panoramic drive around the spectacular Cap de Creus, finish your tour in central Barcelona.

Summer: Pubol Castle and Platja del Castell (July 1 – August 31): 
Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to the attractive seafront town of Platja del Castell. Admire the castle-like house of muralist Josep Maria Sert, a friend of Dalí, where Dalí visited during the 1930s, and then return to Barcelona, where your trip ends.

Venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.

Please note: The Salvador Dalí House in Port Lligat is closed between January 1 and January 4, and January 11 to February 11. On these dates, guests will see only the exterior of the house.

Traveler Tips


Don’t miss visiting the Dalis jewelry museum attached to the main building.
This is indeed a full day’s excursion, about 10 to 11 hours, but well worth the time.

Dalí Museum experience
Cindy_Z, Aug 2022
Highly recommended. We saw the Dalí museum, the Gala castle and the Costa Brava; all in one day. Obviously those were many places for a single day, and we spended a short time in each place. But this tour is good to help you get an overview of each place. If you like any of these more, then you can visit one of them again, dedicating more time to it. Our guide was very kind and he always took care of us. We recommend the boy who was our guide, his name is Jordi (a Dutch-Spanish boy). He is very good at his job, so ask for him and give him a good tip!
Amazing
Cindi_P, Jul 2022
In a word!!! Amazing! Can’t say enough about this tour. Seeing a space that is housing a lot of Dali works. Priceless!
Tourists BEWARE!!!! STOP READ FINE PRINT!!
Flavia_L, Jul 2022
Staff are professional and knowledgeable. HOWEVER, we did NOT go on the tour as the title describes. We did NOT go to Port Lilgot (home of Dali). Thus is an AMAZING sight definitely WORTH the visit (I’ve been and was booking this for my family to visit) To my dismay and ultimate disappointment we went to an “alternative” site “in the fine print”. This site, the “castle of Gala” does NOT compare to Dali’s home at all. Ughhhhh! We drove forever to a site we didn’t want to see. We would have happily driven longer to see Dali’s home. Falsifying titles of trips should NOT be allowed on Viator by tour companies!!!
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hello, First of all, I'd like to thank you for sending the review. However, I want to take this opportunity to explain what happened, and to reassure anybody reading this that we have never tried to trick anybody. For 10 months of the year we go to Figueres, and then to Cadaques, and then to the Dali house. However, during the summer months of Just and August, and the first two weeks of September the traffic driving over the mountain to Cadaques can be horrendous. We are not talking about a 20 minute delay, there are times that we can add an hour or two to the journey. This is why we change the itinerary for these months. When you look at this tour, it is very very clearly stated that there is an alternative summer route. We highlight it a number of times. Unfortunately, some people don't check the itinerary or the tour description, and they miss this important information. We were really sorry about what happened this day, but we try everything to make it clear where we go. Best regards, Robert
Fantastic Day!

Our guide made the trip very informative and fun! He was terrific and gave us so much information to make the trip even more meaningful!
The Salvador Dali...
Sue_M, Jul 2022
The Salvador Dali experience is one of a kind. Our guide, Enrique was informative, witty and patient and made the day enjoyable.
Must see
ampking98, Jun 2022
Really enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Arnau, is very informative and speaks fluent English. Cadaques is beautiful. When I booked the tour I just wanted to see the Dali museum and didn't care about Cadaques, but the view was amazing; reminded me of Greece. Dali theatre museum is smaller than I expected but Dali house definitely exceeded my expectation. It is a must-see attraction; the design is ingenious; most of the furniture is original and the scenery surrounding the house is absolutely stunning. Make sure you take cash with you because for the house tickets you cannot pay by card.

Fantastic knowledgeable guide. Jordin was incredible and very accommodating and flexible. We enjoyed all aspects of the tour but the background information about Dali was priceless.
Best Dali tour & guide
MaryJoB_D, Jun 2022
Great trip! Guide, Enrique, very knowledgeable. Museum & house equally interesting. 11 hour trip, from Barselona but well worth it.

Gloria was an expert on all things Dali and the sights were amazing. Marcelo our driver kept us safe and got us there comfortablely. Worth the trip and must see Port Lligat
Great local guide
Miguel_P, Jun 2022
The tour guide Arnau was very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour as a break from Barcelona. It is also not too intense as the drive is long and gives you plenty of time to recharge. The scenery was very interesting, though, and Arnau shared a lot of facts during the ride that kept me engaged.
Submerged in Dali
Tisha_G, Jun 2022
I am intrigued by Salvador Dali and love his art. I had been to the museum.in Figueras but never to the house in Port Lligat. The tour of his house was amazing! We ate at a seafood restaurant in Cadeques and enjoyed the museum.
Dalí and the Costa Brava

Jordi was the best guide. He was informative and considerate of the needs of the group. He took time to make it a personal experience. It was the best tour I have taken.

Fantastic enthusiastic knowledgeable guide Rod made all the difference. The Dali theatre museum and the Dali house at Cadaques are both amazing.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi, A great effort by Rod once again! Thanks you from all of us, Robert
Worth every penny. Or Euro
david_g, Jun 2022
Great guide, very knowledgeable about the area, answered auditions, friendly an a fun time was had by all. Would do it again.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi, Thank you so much, Robert
A must do for Dali fans!
Amanda_C, Jun 2022
This experience is a great way to spend a day learning about Dali without having to coordinate transportation which is definitely the biggest obstacle as it is not easy driving on mountain roads to Port Lligat. It was a more a self guided tour as we explored the Museum and house on our own. Could have used more time at the Museum and for lunch. Be sure to bring some snacks as the only chance to get food is in Cadaques.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hello Thank you for sending us your review. I just wanted to comment on the self-guided observation. The reason we do not take you around the museum is because Dalí wanted people to discover his work on their own and in their own way. We talk all about him and his work on the way to Figueres, and we add insights throughout the day. Best regards, Robert
Fun tour, great guide!
Nancy_V, Jun 2022
Our tour guide, Cam, was great! He gave us two very helpful lectures on the tour bus that helped us better understand and appreciate the sites. This was a very efficient and fun way to visit Figueres and Cadaqués.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi, From Cam and the team, a big thank you for everything. Best regards, Robert
