Book this trip! The seaside is absolutely stunning, the castle was impressive, the beach front was beautiful. You get to see a bit of Spain that you wouldn’t see just staying in Barcelona (it’s about a 1.5 hour drive.) We were a small group of 7 on the tour, so it was nice and not overwhelming. Enrique our guide was great! He took us to a local place for lunch and ordered for us all - we never would have found this restaurant on our own. We ate like locals. Lots of walking on this trip, so if that’s not your thing, then it’s not for you. It was easy walking, though. Nothing too strenuous. My 17 and 20 year old kids were in awe all day. It was a fantastic day. I give it 5 stars all the way!

Everything was great. The guides were very helpfull. We had enough time in Girona. Could have used a little more time in Figueres.

Great fun day, botanical gardens were spectacular. Tour guide, Jordie, was informative and so nice. Overall 10/10 experience.

Really fun trip out and did more kayaking than was expected. Nice to stop off at beaches too.

Our guide Gemma is fantastic and very knowledgeable in Dali and the tour is well organized.
