A long day, lots of time in the van. But worth it! Saw not only Dali's museum and home but got a good review of his life during the trip up. Unexpected sights were the drive through the mountains and the sleepy little town on the Mediterranean. We were early enough to stop in a church with a huge carved-wood alter-piece where, if you put a one-euro coin in the box it will be lit up for about a minute. Unexpected surprises made this very long trip fun.

A wonderful choice for those who haven't got enough time and want to have a good "taste" of Catalonian villages. Paolina is one of the best guides, very friendly and easy going, she made this trip very interesting with her huge knowledge on history, without being tiring. A very good value for money, I totally recommend it.

Our tour with Miquel was FANTASTIC!! He was funny, well-I formed, and most of all incredibly passionate about Dalí and that made us all appreciate the artist to the fullest. If you take this tour, DEFINITELY ask for Miquel!!!

The Dali museum is a must see! Our guide Cam was excellent! Extremely knowledgeable! He gave us the complete history on the drive there which was great to make the long drive pass by quickly.

The whole tour is really well organized , especially our guide Gasper is very friendly and very knowledgeable about Dali. Highly recommend.
