Full description
Discover the history and beauty of Catalonia on a 1-day trip to Girona and the Costa Brava.

Start your day in Barcelona at 8:30, and head to Girona, a well established city with a fascinating history. Explore its streets, and admire its rich architecture. See the cathedral, established in 1038 on the site of a former Mosque. Visit historical museums such as the Jewish Call and the Arab Bath house. Stroll around the colorful streets of the old town or sit down to have a cup of coffee and watch people walk by.

Then on to the fairytale-like city of Pals, a small medieval village that came about from what was once a fortress. From Pals, head to the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, a beach village with whitewashed houses that ramble all the way down to the sea front. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the traditional restaurants, and spend the afternoon exploring the rocky coastline, visiting the botanic gardens at Cap Roig, or taking a refreshing dip in the inviting waters of the Mediterranean.

Arrive back in Barcelona at 19:30.

Es un excelente tour. Girona es precioso, y vale mucho la pena, y el pueblito de Costa Brava es MUY lindo también. Además, frenamos en un pueblito divino que se llama Pals que también vale la pena verlo, porque es de cuento. En invierno no se puede aprovechar 100% poruqe en realidad en el pueblo no hay casi nada, pero es muy lindo para ir a conocer.

We had Steven as our guide and it was a wonderful trip! Steven told us so much about the history of the areas we visited, the current political climate in Catalunya, without any prejudice, I might add. We enjoyed our very long day immensely and felt quite happy with the tour that we chose. Steven was so friendly and accommodating, easy-going, and easy to talk to. And a very good guide and driver! We would highly recommend this tour!

First off, they contacted me 1 day prior that my tour is cancelled due to system failure. They offered the same tour but after 2days in which I cannot take because I’ll be flying back home. So they offered me 2 alternative tours - Pyrenees or Costa brava tour. I chose Costa brava tour which includes Blanes, Tossa and Peratallada. On the day of the tour, I asked again why the tour of Girona was cancelled and Christine of Explore Catalunya told me that I am the only one who booked it so they have to cancel. Obviously it’s not my fault, also it should be stated in their website as well that the tour requires 2 pax in order to operate. Anyway they gave me another option so I took it. During the tour I asked our guide if we are visiting Peratallada and he told me that the system is not updated and that it is not included in the tour since it’s quite far and an hour away from where we are. So what they put in their website is very misleading and isn’t right. It should be improved...
