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.

This was a great trip we had covering Girona, Pals and Costa Brava. Felt like we were travelling with friends. Our guide Daniel was so so friendly and knowledgeable about the places we were visiting. The trip only had us and another couple and we all became friends by the end of the trip. Daniel showed us all the great spots around Girona and Pals and offered us ample time to see the places on our own and take photographs. He also arranged a nice place for us to eat in Callela de Palafrugell. A super trip all in all and 10/10 for Daniel as our guide.

I had booked Palafrugell for two days after Barcelona. Had I known the tour was Girona and a drop off for lunch at Palafrugell, I wouldn't have booked this tour. Girona is not a big deal but a poor city with a small area and unimpressive cathedral and a Roman wall/remains. I've seen better. Palafrugell is beautiful and longer time would be better for a nice swim.

Our tour guide was Gaspar who was very informative and lovely. He took us initially to Girona where he walked us around and showed us some sights and then gave us free time to explore - after that we went to Pals, a small beautiful historic village where he again walked us around and gave us insights into the history of Pals as well as showing us some very beautiful view points, after Pals we were taken to palafrugell in Costa brava which was utterly beautiful. My partner and I spent over an hour in the crystal clear ocean and then after that we enjoyed a late lunch in one of the restaurants overlooking the beach. On the way back Gaspar stopped at some beautiful view points and gave us some insightful information about each area. This trip was absolutely fantastic and a total bargain for the price quite frankly! If you are considering this trip then absolutely book it as these are places and things we would have never ventured out of Barcelona to see otherwise! And with a great tour
