Full description

Explore the rugged coastline of charming coves, pine forests, and crystal-clear water on the Girona coast with this day trip from Barcelona. Travel aboard an air-conditioned bus to Lloret de Mar, and take a boat to to Tossa de Mar for a guided tour. 

Depart from bus station "Estació del Nord" in central Barcelona in the morning for the drive to Lloret de Mar, the main tourist village of the Costa Brava. Upon arrival, find yourself immersed in the hustle and bustle of this vibrant town.

Stroll along the promenade for breathtaking views of the majestic Lloret Beach and the hidden Sa Caleta. Walk through the narrow streets, which retain an ambiance of Lloret’s maritime past. Uncover the modernist architecture of the Church of St. Roma.

Climb on board the Dofijets, and sail to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. Gaze at the characteristic landscape as you cruise, a procession of huge cliffs that have been shaped by the sea and wind into fanciful forms over centuries.

Arrive at Tossa de Mar and explore its beaches, caves, and Medieval remains. Explore the Old Town of Tossa, listed as an artistic-historic monument since 1931, and one of the few remaining fortified medieval towns on the Catalan coast. 

Discover traditional fishing neighborhoods, such as Sa Roqueta. Have free time for lunch in Tossa, where your can check-out an array of gastronomic offerings or visit the boutique shops. In the afternoon, head back to Barcelona by bus.

I and a group of my friends from my study abroad went on this excursion and had a fantastic time! There was lots of free time to get food, shop and explore. The boat ride is an absolute must if you’re heading to Costa Brava! Our tour guides were also very knowledgeable and made sure that we were having a great time! This is a great tour if you have reservations for something in the evening, but have nothing planned for the earlier part of the day. We were able to see Costa Brava and still make it back to shop and eat!

Great tour. My family and I had a great time. They give you a lot of free time and you can do a lot if you choose not to follow the guide. If you want to go swimming instead of going to the old town, you have enough time. They don't mention it but bring a bathing suit the beach and the water are amazing. Once you get off the boat you can go straight to the water once you know where the meeting point is at the allotted time. Pay attention because you will not go back on the boat at the end, they will walk back to a bus for the ride home. Definitely do this tour and enjoy.
