What people are saying about Figueres

Booked the tour last minute, on a whim and it turned out to be a lovely day! I was travelling solo so it was nice to meet some new people and the guides explained everything very well with precise navigation and instructions. Would have loved an additional half hour in Girona but I understand it was a tight schedule. Overall would definitely recommend :)

Great day! The Dali museum is extraordinary and a must even if he wasn’t on your radar. He will be, after a visit to his favored site! The drive to Cadaques is breathtaking and the town, enchanting. His home on the Mediterranean is well worth the visit!

Arnau was great guide...giving excellent summary of Dali during drive to Figueres...to drive and talk in all the traffic is amazing...there was enough free time for lunch and exploring

Our guide Jordi was very informative, friendly and helpful. He kept us entertained during the long car ride and had great suggestions for us at the various destinations.

Girona is magical and Dali's eccentric artwork will leave you spellbound
