This was the first time I had ever taken a day-long guided tour. My friend and I agreed it was a great way to see the Dalí museums. Setting up the tour was convenient. They were accommodating, and came to our hotel to pick us up/ drop us off... which was much appreciated. On the drive we not only were given some of Dali’s history, but the history of the area. Andre, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about Dali’s life and works. At the first 2 museums, he explained a few key works in detail and gave us time to roam around and experience the museums for ourselves. Understanding Dali’s symbolism allowed us to see Dali’s visions in a new way. Viewing the landscapes on the way to Dali’s house museum, the third stop, is alone worth the trip. The winding road along the mountainous coast and tucked away towns are breathtaking. There are additional fees for the tickets so make sure to bring extra cash to settle up at the end of the trip. What a fun day!!!
First, the hotel/lodging location pick up and drop off was fantastic. Our guide Oriol was excellent. His knowledge on Dali and on details was impressive. There was no question he could not answer. His knowledge about the region and on Spain was all extremely valuable. He is also a very likable guy to spend the day with. The group is maximum at 8 guests and there is no cancellation regardless of how many have signed up. That is also excellent. His recommendation for things to do while at the sites and on our own have all been spot on. I needed to use an ATM and Oriol provided assistance to find on en route and provided help to ensure that is was done. Greatly appreciated. I would recommend him highly. Many little touches of high service and care that are too numerous to mention. I would recommend to to anyone interested in a Dali day with an expert. It was great to experience the Dali Theatre museum, and to see his home along the shore.
Kurt was great! Very knowledgeable about Dali! He was there early for our pickup. He drove very safely throughout the trip. We always felt safe about COVID and cleanliness issues. The museum was very interesting filled in with Kurt’s excellent narrative. The drive down to Cadaquès was very nice and what a beautiful seaside town to have lunch in. There are many restaurants to choose from. Then on to Dali’s house. What an eclectic place. I would find it very relaxing with lots of creative energy flowing through the house to write, paint, or just create! The views were amazing!
Excellent excursion from Barcelona, especially if you are a fan of Salvador Dali. If you don't know much about Dali, you will find yourself astounded at the art in both the Dali theater museum and his studio home in Portlligat.
Even if you don’t care for Dali this was amazing! I did get carsick from beautiful winding road up so Dramamine would be helpful. Our guide Vincent was so much fun. He was full of great interesting facts.
