Full description
This full-day tour from Barcelona follows in the tracks of the surrealist genius Salvador Dalí, exploring the the landscape that inspired his art. You’ll visit his favorite haunts and secret hideaways, as well as the legendary Dali Museum at Figueres and his former home near Cadaqués. You’ll head from Barcelona to Figueres, where you’ll visit Dalí’s birthplace and the extraordinary museum dedicated to his work. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a “whole,” so there are no catalogues and the work is not displayed in any organized manner. The tour continues to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués, famous for its whitewashed Mediterranean houses and narrow streets. With its charming bay, it is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. What is particularly stunning is the dramatic scenery on the drive there. For lunch, you can enjoy local seafood specialties at one of the numerous terraces, or grab a sandwich and relax on the beach. You’ll soon understand why Cadaqués inspired Dalí and so many other artists. Travel up the coast to the smaller village of Port Lligat, where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him.  The winter schedule (September 1 to June 30) starts with a drive to Figueres, where you will spend the morning exploring the Dalí Museum. From the museum, drive to Cadaqués. After lunch at your own expense, continue exploring Cadaqués or head to Port Lligat, to visit Dali's House. The summer schedule (July 1 to August 31) leaves Figueres for Pubol Castle, once the home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch, venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline.

I really enjoyed this day trip to Figueres and Cadaques from Barcelona. Enrique was a wonderful guide and told us lots of interesting facts along the way to the Dali museum. There were only 5 of us plus Enrique, so a very comfortable ride in the van. The Dali museum was a lot of fun and we had plenty of time to look at everything. It was raining, so once in Cadaques, we really didn't do any beach time, but just had a relaxing lunch. Enrique took us out to Cap de Creus, a beautiful natural area at the tip of the peninsula, and what a stunning view! This was the best part of the day. Thanks Enrique and Explore Catalunya for a great tour, and for working with me to change the date of my tour so I didn't get cancelled for not enough people. Great tour company.

The tour was excellent from beginning to end. The tour guide - Rodrigo - was full of information about Dali that helped explain his art. More than enough time was allowed for independent viewing at the museum, as well as for activities planned in the afternoon such as lunch and a visit to Dali's home.

Fantastic day trip. A must for a lover of Dali's works. Enrique, our guide, was excellent. If I could change one thing it would be to shorten the time in Cadaques and extend the time in the Dali Museum in Figueras. 1.5 hours in the Dali Museum is doable but it felt rushed. 30 min to an hour more would have made it less so. But otherwise, highly recommend this tour. Truly a small group tour experience. A highlight of my stay in Catalunya!
