What people are saying about Cadaques
We spend the day with Ruben, a family of four on a semi-private tour with two lovely visitors from Turkey as well. Ruben navigated Barcelona expertly and effectively and once we were out of the city told us all about Dali's life, from his birth in Figueres and young life (his parents believed he was the reincarnation of their son who died 9 mos before Dali, so they gave him his dead brother's name). The details and his capacity to tell compelling stories made Ruben's tale of the influences on Dali, his complex relationships with his wife Gala and his (male born) lover Amalia and his relationship with Figueres and Cadaques, where he lived later in his life riveting such that my two children, who would usually be searching everywhere for wifi were also captivated. We were traveling with one person in a wheelchair and he was thoughtful and helpful in navigating things most effectively and comfortably. I highly recommend Ruben as a guide and we all give him two thumbs up!
Highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a way to learn about Salvador Dali's work and life. Also a fantastic way to see Costa Brava scenery without going through the trouble of renting a car. Mariusz, our guide, was great. He picked us up from our accommodations, was extremely knowledgeable, and even waited in the overwhelming line to buy our museum tickets for us so that we would be able to spend our time exploring Figueres. Cannot recommend this experience enough.
Our guide , Miguel,was an excellent driver, very careful of my car sickness on the winding road. His excitement and knowledge of Dali made the tour great. The big problem was the car was too small-especially for such a long ride. The back seat was squished with 3 adults and quite uncomfortable for riding over 4hours. My husband's knees were against the seat in from and the seat belt was pushing into my side.
Our guide, Arnau, was friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. He was also a very good and safe driver. Everything went smoothly and all four of us had a great day.
