Full description
Discover the history and beauty of Catalonia on a 1-day trip to Girona and the Costa Brava. Start your day in Barcelona at 8:30, and head to Girona, a well established city with a fascinating history. Explore its streets, and admire its rich architecture. See the cathedral, established in 1038 on the site of a former Mosque. Visit historical museums such as the Jewish Call and the Arab Bath house. Stroll around the colorful streets of the old town or sit down to have a cup of coffee and watch people walk by. Then on to the fairytale-like city of Pals, a small medieval village that came about from what was once a fortress. From Pals, head to the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, a beach village with whitewashed houses that ramble all the way down to the sea front. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the traditional restaurants, and spend the afternoon exploring the rocky coastline, visiting the botanic gardens at Cap Roig, or taking a refreshing dip in the inviting waters of the Mediterranean. Arrive back in Barcelona at 19:30.

I went on the Girona and Costa Brava day trip on 4-16-2022 and it was one of the most beautiful tours I have been on. The guide was excellent. The small bus was clean and comfortable. Solo traveler friendly. We started in Girona which is an amazing town. You could easily spend a whole day or more there, but the short visit is excellent too. The guide was very knowledgeable and we had enough free time to explore on our own. After Girona we stopped in another small town, Pals, for a walking tour with some free time. Wonderful small historical town with plenty of snack options. The day ended on the Mediterranean in Palafrugell. The white washed buildings were the complete opposite of the medieval towns from earlier in the day. The guide helped us select some excellent tapas and we enjoyed a leisurely lunch in view of the ocean. We had a chance to put our feet in the water but the water was still a bit cold for swimming. Highly recommend this trip.

*2 hours in Pals *2 hour lunch stop in Costa Brava. I recommend you bring your own lunch, so that you can spend some time on the Cami de Ronda hiking trail. *20-30 minute guided tour in Girona *1.5 hours free time in Girona. A day tour can only give you a glimpse, but it would be nice to have more time in Costa Brava and Girona. Our group had 4 people. Travel in nice, super clean SUV. The guide was fun and friendly and gave us a little info about Spain and Catalonia along the drive.

Sergio - our tour guide - was very professional, kind and funny at times. He would explain all the details and even recommend where to eat and what to order based on experience and the resto’s specialty. He was a good photographer too. And he suggested other places we could visit in Barcelona. Overall, it’s a day tour you cannot miss especially if you’re a Game of Thrones fan then this is for you. The combination of places we visited were astonishing. I would definitely recommend this tour with Sergio!
