Full description
Explore the stunning landscapes of the Costa Brava on a full-day tour to Girona from Barcelona. Depart the Catalan capital for the city of Girona, where the remains of its Roman and medieval past make an interesting contrast to the present day city. Get lost in a maze of narrow streets, and venture into the best-preserved Jewish Ghetto in Europe. Admire the cathedral, home to the widest Gothic nave in the world. Marvel at the brightly colored houses on the banks of the Onyar River. Then, transfer to the breathtaking landscapes and villages of the Costa Brava, stopping at the medieval village of Pals en route. Stroll down cobblestone streets, and enjoy some of the best panoramas of the Mediterranean Sea whipped-up by the fierce Tramontana wind. Marvel at the fields and plains of Empordà extending to the horizon. Discover dramatic views of the Catalan coast, surrounded by green mountains, sheer cliffs, and small villages of whitewashed houses. Stop in the traditional fishing village of Calella De Palafrugell, and feel as if you have been transported back to yesteryear. Explore the pristine landscape of Calella, and discover the ancient pathways of the Caminos de Ronda. Once used by fishermen, watchmen and smugglers, these paths allow you to explore the virgin coast at your leisure, where you will discover popular beaches and inaccessible coves and cliffs. Take a dip in crystal clear water, surrounded by unspoiled nature.

La experiencia fue excelente y la recomendaríamos a todo quien quiera conocer mas sobre la historia de Girona y Costa Brava. Nuestro guía fue Miguel quien se portó maravillosamente y nos hizo sentir como en familia. En todo momento estuvo muy atento a nuestras necesidades y como éramos una pareja en español y uno en inglés individualmente nos dedicó tiempo para explicarnos todo.

Took this tour with 4 people we did not know. Miguel, our guide, was wonderful. 2 of us had slight mobility problems and Miguel was very accommodating. It helped that the 4 other people were a family, since it was the dad with mobility problems, there was no one to be put out. Girona was beautiful. When we got there we went to a cafe for coffee and a snack, restroom break, then Miguel walked us through the city. He was so well informed and entertaining. When we left he walked us back to the snack place. Then we left for the fishing village instead of Pals because it was full of steep hills. The village was on the sea. We had a fantastic lunch overlooking the beautiful sea. Then we walked around some. There was not a lot open due to off season. Instead of taking us to Pals he took us to a lighthouse way up on a hill. The views were so incredible. We all loved it. I would highly recommend Miguel as a guide. We travel often and have had many guides and he was one of the best.

Wow! This was one of the most incredible experiences we have had on a vacation. The beauty of Girona, Pals, and Calella de Palafrugell were extraordinary. Our driver and guide Marcos was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. He made the most use of the time, and was very thoughtful about food and restroom stops. I would highly recommend this experience!
