Stephen gave us a great tour of the Costa Brava. This tour involved quite a bit of driving from the Barcelona Gothic Quarter to the coast, with a return at the end of the day. Stephen made the drive interesting by informing us of the history of the area we were passing through, as well by pointing out interesting sites that we passed.
When we reached Blanes, we explored the tropical gardens which provided great overlook of the rugged coast, then made a visit to the tower fortress of St Joan, followed by a scrumptious and filling lunch provided at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we continued with a trip to Tossa de Mar, and a visit to the old fort and some Roman Ruins. Even though the afternoon was spent in rainy weather, Stephens upbeat personality and concern for the comfort of his clients kept our spirits high.

Amazing - definitely would recommend it! Our tour guide was very informative and courteous! It's a great way to get out of Barcelona and I might actually do it again if I ever make it back!

This is a fantastic day! We wanted to spend a day at the coast, and this was the best choice for a tour. I cannot say enough great things about Josep our guide! Wow, he has an incredible amount of energy and knowledge. We absolutely loved him. We did around 8 different tours and excursions on our trip, and Josep was our favorite guide. He took us to beautiful places we otherwise wouldn't have seen, shared history and culture with us - but in a way that entertained the teenagers in the group - and took us to a wonderful family restaurant where the food just kept coming and coming. Amazing!! You won't regret taking this tour, and if you're able to get Josep as a guide you will be so fortunate. Thanks Josep for a fantastic day!!

Absolutely gorgeous- the Mediterranean Sea has always been a bucket list item of mine and this was a great tour to incorporate it into our trip to Barcelona. Don't miss out on the Botanical Garden for sweeping views of the rocky cliffs and the sea! Lunch was also wonderful and we left full for the rest of the afternoon!

Excellent trip. The beach views were blissful and it was a perfect day to explore the botanical gardens, relax at the beach and drink a bottle (or two) of wine at the local bar. Lots of free time to explore and lunch was delicious. Our tour guide, Steve, was engaging and pleasant! Highly recommend!

Our guide was so enthusiastic and engaged with everyone in our small group. The botanical garden could be skipped. It was a well paced day trip and the sights were incredible. Highly recommend this trip!

A day well spent on the prettiest shore, Costa Brava is sure to take your breath away. Our guide Laura, with her excellent knowledge and sense of humour always kept the atmosphere lively. The cliffside Marimurtra Botanical garden offers some stunning views of Costa Brava. The ocean with its blue green waters will make you not want to go back. The garden has a beautiful architecture and strolling along the sea while exploring numerous species of plants was a wonderful experience. There was still sufficient time left to relax on the beach. Lunch was a lavish spread of Spanish ham, patatas bravas, potato and cheese croquettes,Spanish bread, fish, Lasagne, etc and there was a good choice of 5 desserts ! With such a scrumptious meal, a siesta was obvious and I was glad we could catch up on it in the comfortable minivan. We arrived at Tossa de Mar and walked all the way up through some of the the cutest alleys in the old fortified town here. We got ample time to see the entire place, make new friends and do some souvenir shopping. Total value for money, I loved it and would do it again.

This trip is a trip within our Barcelona trip. We completely love it! A small group of people shared a small van driving by the tour girl stared from Barcelona downtown in the morning. The tour was well organized. Our tour girl was very knowledgeable and very nice! We learned a lot of history about Spain and Barcelona. We love her! We toured the beautiful beach at Costa Brava, as well as the garden. They are breathtaking! At the lunch, we were treated in a local restaurant and enjoyed the authentic local meal. The trip is well worth the money in my opinion. I strongly recommend to other travelers. If you happen to be in Barcelona, you should take this one day trip to Costa Brava. You will appreciate it.
