First, the hotel/lodging location pick up and drop off was fantastic. Our guide Oriol was excellent. His knowledge on Dali and on details was impressive. There was no question he could not answer. His knowledge about the region and on Spain was all extremely valuable. He is also a very likable guy to spend the day with. The group is maximum at 8 guests and there is no cancellation regardless of how many have signed up. That is also excellent. His recommendation for things to do while at the sites and on our own have all been spot on. I needed to use an ATM and Oriol provided assistance to find on en route and provided help to ensure that is was done. Greatly appreciated. I would recommend him highly. Many little touches of high service and care that are too numerous to mention. I would recommend to to anyone interested in a Dali day with an expert. It was great to experience the Dali Theatre museum, and to see his home along the shore.
Our guide Gloria and driver Marcelo were brilliant. Very well organised and everything ran to a good schedule with enough time to look around the museum in Figures, lunch at Cadaques and Port Lligat. Gloria was really enthusiastic and knowledgable. She told us all about Dali, his childhood, upbringing, friendship and relationships that shaped him into the artist he became. She came into the museum explaining some pieces of art and then left us to explore. We then made our way to Cadaques where Dali lived with as a child, we have time to stop for lunch overlooking the seafront and a walk to the church. Next stop Dali’s home in Port Lligat, she came around the house with us and the guide. We had time to explore the gardens. I can’t express how well the tour is put together, didn’t feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Beautiful scenery and places to visit.
This is one of the trips that I have enjoyed most. They take a small group of up to 20 people. It is obviously beneficial if you are lucky enough to land a very small group. Ana, the tour guide, is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain questions in-depth. She has a genuine concern for her clients. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend paying the extra 14 Euro’s to see Dali’s house.
We had a wonderful experience with our guide Gloria and driver Marcelo. Gloria was very passionate and knowledgeable about Dalí, and we learned quite a bit thanks to her! She was filled with facts and really made the museum come to life. We also loved getting to walk around Cadaques on a beautiful day! We would absolutely recommend the tour.
It was a great experience both Girona and Figueres with the Dali Museum. Our guide, Vicente, is very passionate about history and arts, answered to all of our questions and provided us with great information throughout the entire trip. We thank you for a wonderful tour and for many interesting information that you have shared with us!
