The tour was fascinating. I enjoyed all segments of the tour and it was a nice opportunity to get out of Barcelona and see the countryside of Costa Brava. My favorite segment of the trip was a tour of Dali's home in Port Lligat. It is as eccentric as you would expect. The tour was guided by Arnau who was very knowledgable and personable and gave a very thorough history of Dali and his wife Gala, which helped explain some of the artist's obsessions. I highly recommend this tour and Arnau as a guide!

Our family of seven, including my husband a retired professor of art, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. From the background on Dali, to the history of the area and other Spanish artists, this was a first-rate experience. We had plenty of time to enjoy the Dali theater museum on our own without feeling rushed or hurried along. We would all highly recommend this tour!

One for the Dali's fan.
The museum in Figueres is weird and wonderful but I would expect nothing less from Salvador Dali.
And the road to Cadaques is quite picturesque and the landscape is rugged and windswept. I 3 it.
Seafood lunch in Cadaques was reasonably priced.

This was a great tour for all of us who love Salvador Dali. It is a bit of a ride from Barcelona but what you will see of how this great artist lived away from the light is worth the ride. The museum is like none you have ever seen before and his home is just something you have to see yourself.

This was an excellent day trip tour. And I do recommend it to everyone. It is one way also to see the country.

Arneau, our guide, related the place of Dali's life, work, and personality within the history of art of the region and the world.
The drive from Barcelona was long but interspersed with vignettes of Dali's personal and professional life and times. Arneau is a master story teller... historian.
The museum itself is a tribute to Dali's perspective of life and his ability to integrate the sublime and the mandate, the sacred and secular, the personal and universal ideas of who we are with each other on the earth in the heavens... for what purpose... you decide.
Having experienced his work in St. Petersburg Fl we now have a complete imprint of his life and work. J and R Naples Florida.

Excellent day trip from Barcelona. I considered arranging the transportation and tickets myself, but considering the cost, stress and time involved, I opted for this tour. Well worth the money. Our group was small 15 and the minivan was comfortable and air-conditioned. Our tour guide Anna was excellent and very knowledgeable about Dali and his life. I could have spent hours at the Dali Museum alone, but this tour allowed me to see all the highlights as well as visit his amazing home and enjoy the scenery along the way and back. While in Cadaques, we had time to enjoy a delicious lunch at any of the charming restaurants facing the sea. Highly recommended!

Our guide is very good. He knows a lot about Dali. It is fun to hear those anecdotes on the way to the museum.

The Dali museum is worth the ride from Barcelona, even if you're not a fan of his art. The theater/museum is in such an amazing and unique building it becomes a part of the experience. My group decided not to take the optional tour to his house, so we stayed in the seaside town of Cadaques. We had a nice leisurely lunch and enjoyed wandering the picturesque town. It is beautiful and doesn't feel touristy. Our bus driver handled the windy roads smoothly and our guide Feliciano helped the ride pass quickly with stories and facts about the life of Dali and Gala.

Excellent trip to Dalis unusual museum and house. Enjoyed seafood lunch in Cadaques. This is a great tour to take if you want to get out of Barcelona for the day even if you are not a Dali fan.

I'm not a huge Dali fan so I didn't go to his home and instead hung out in Cadaques. I went on the trip because I wanted to spend some time outside of Barcelona and see the region around the city. I enjoyed the museum, and am glad I went, but I'm still not a huge fan. I really liked the Dali Jewels exhibit, that was very amazing. The guide, Anna was great. You could tell she enjoyed her job and Dali.

We loved our tour and all the interesting and funny things we learned from Feliciano. Although it was a long drive between spots, it was really worthwhile to see the house.

If you have limited time, this is a great way to fit in the Dali sites quickly. The time at the Dali Theater Museum is a bit tight but we managed to make it through the whole thing hint, the work on the third floor is all very much the same, this stuff that's about images made up of rocks and stones, if you need to skip something. I felt like it was worth it in order to get to also see the house in Figueres, which is really interesting if you're really into Dali. The town of Cadaques where he was born was not so great for us because it was winter and chilly, but probably really great in spring/summer/fall. The guide was knowledgeable and I learned a lot about Dali's life on the bus ride, but he also left plenty of quiet time for those who wanted to nap. All in all, worked out very well for us.

An excellent, in-depth tour with a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who spoke excellent English and walked us through much of Dali's personal history. He gave us a brief explanation in the museum and allowed us free time there, but more explanation was offered outside of the museum and along the road to Cadaques, a pretty almost-Greek like Spanish village of personal import to Dali. I opted not to join the optional tour for Dali's house in Cadaques as I found the village absolutely breathtaking, but those who went to Dali's house found it very worthwhile, so you can't really go wrong there. At the end, the tour guide showed us Dali's collaboration with Disney, Destino on our trip back to Barcelona. I felt like Dali's weird personal history, artistic methods and unique way of seeing the world were much more familiar after this tour. Highly recommended.

Dali day tour was great! We originally planned to rent a car and do it ourselves and we are very glad we decided to book the tour. First, the guide, Arnaud was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about Dali and so much else. Tour allowed for plenty of time at the various venues. Gave us multiple recommendations for lunch in Cadaques rather than one, which is so common on tours. Also gave multiple recommendations for food in Barcelona which were solid.

Rodrigo was an extremely knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. The tour is about 2.5 hours away from Barcelona and he was both the driver and guide of this small group. The van that took us to Girona was small and not very comfortable but well worth it to see The Dalí museum and Cadaqués.
