This was my FAVORITE thing I did in the 3 weeks I was in Spain. The day is magical, informative and so wacky! You really step into Dali's world visiting the Dali Theatre in Figueres, the small seaside village of Cadaques for lunch and on to home that he and Gala shared. Our guide Feliciano was so knowledgeable and passionate about Dali that the day flew by. The group was intimate and though the crowds were large the timing and access we received made the day like it was just for us.
Oh my --- well this was one wonderful tour. Gloria or Glo as she told us to call her was the most entertaining guide I have ever had. She loved her subject and kept us entertained on the long bus ride. And oh this is a tour well worth taking....simply fascinating. But I must say It would not have been as special without Glo. High marks!
Brilliant! Let's you get into the unique mind of a great artist via his works, his home and his village. The trip was not rushed, giving us plenty of time to explore and enjoy lunch. Our guide was fantastic - a lot of fun.
Loved the tour. Learned so much about Dali and how truly talented he was.
This small group was indeed not that small, more than 12 persons. The very tall German tour guide sorry forgot his name spoke good English, though a little bit hard to follow at times. He has good control of time and the tour is well managed.

Great tour, learned a lot about Dali private life too. Cadaques was very crowded and not very exciting. Thank u.
This trip was long but certainly worth while. The tour guide was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, well spoken and fun to be with. The museum was as amazing as Dali himself. The trip to the Dali home in Cadaques was wonderful and picturesque.
Really great day trip! Our tour guide was very informative and pleasant to be with. Looking back, it was really nice because he led our group and gave information but gave us plenty of time to wonder around and check things out for ourselves! So best of both worlds! Highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic Day, , Dalis house is amazing and the scenery on the way is just beautiful.
Highly recommend this tour - small group which was great getting into the venues. Tour guide was lovely Matias and driver Gordie sorry for the spelling of names - where both so good.
Wonderful tour and excellent guide. Full day of immersion into Surrealism. Great in-depth information and insight on the artist on the way to Figueres. The museum was amazing. The trip to Cadaques was very enjoyable, too and we had a choice of staying in this relaxing fishing town or taking a trip to the nearly Dali house. Don't skip the Dali house -- it was absolutely amazing.
We had the time of our lives. Rodrigo was a fantastic guide. He was knowledgable, funny and warm. Seeing the museum, Figueres, Cadaques and especially Dali's home in Port Ligat is something we will never forget. This day trip was a real highlight of our three week European vacation.
This was the best tour I took on the few days I was in Barcelona. I think the tour guide was Mathias or Metheo I forget. He was super knowledgeable on what seems about everything! The two hour ride wasn't too bad. The only gripe I had was I didn't feel like there was enough time at the museum. Since it was such a busy place it took a while to get to see everything. However, Cadaques and Port Lligat were absolutely beautiful. Dali's house was great. Punctuality is a must on this tour since the Dali house tours are every 10 minutes and they reserved our time.
We were in Spain and France for 3 weeks and this was my favorite day. The trip was well planned and executed. Everything was timely. Of course I am a Salvador Dali fan but there is something for everyone on this day trip. Besides the museum, we explored Dali's house, dipped our toes in the Mediterranean, had tapas and cava on the beach, and saw the countryside from Barcelona to France.
The Dali museum is unique, exciting and mentally challenging. Take a photo of a nude and your shot turns out as President Lincoln! Ingenious! Take a photo of the car and look what happens.
By far worth every moment!
Rod the guide had so much information to share and never left a question unanswered. Long day but well worth it!
Our guide made this trip unforgettable. Feleciano was so knowledgable. I thought I knew about Dali but I learned so much more. I hope you are lucky enough to get him as your guide.
A long trip out of Barcelona was worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable and I only wish she would have stayed with us in the museum to explain some of Dali's work. The trip his home was wonderful.
Overall, this tour was excellent value. We went to Figueres and saw Dali's museum. I wish we had a longer time in the museum as there was a lot to see. Perhaps 2 hours in this leg of the trip would have been sufficient. Cadaques and Port Ligat were well worth the visit. The restaurants we were recommended to have our lunch were fantastic and Port Ligat was a nice relaxing way to finish the wonderful journey into Dali's home town and museum. Make sure you visit the Jewel museum in Figueres - well worth a visit.
In a word, suburb. The tour was the perfect way to see these sites as a day trip from Barcelona. Our guide, Maltice sp? was very knowledge.
Our tour was awesome. Laura did an awesome job of making everyone feel included. it was incredible seeing Dali's house. It was like he just stepped out for a minute. One of the highlights of our trip!
This was my favorite excursion from Barcelona. Our tour guide was wonderful, very informative and engaging. It was a beautiful trip. We also had free time Cadaques, as we chose to hang out on the seaside rather than do the second part of the excursion. Only because the museum had been enough for me. Those in our group who went to see Gala's home loved it. I wish I could remember our guides name. I think it was Anna. On the way back I was getting car sick, and the guide let me have her seat in the front of the bus. Thank you!
A really good insight into Dali's every day life.And his beach house was very interesting! He was truly a an artist that won't be copied in this century!A MUST!!
