After lunch at your own expense, continue exploring Cadaqués or head to Port Lligat, to visit Dali's House.

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 bike tour was amazing! We've seen all the top spots with a great explanation from our guide. Too bad we had bad weather so we couldn't stop for a drink at the beach. All in all very beautiful and informative.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. It was great tj get out if Barcelona and see some of the countryside and beaches.

Fantástica experiencia, súper recomendable! Todo muy bien organizado, el barco fenomenal y el patrón muy atento y buen guía.

Great little excursion around the local area & sea front. the tour guide David was very knowledgeable and patient
