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.
Really great trip to Figueres and Port Lligat to see two out of three of the ‘Dali Triangle’ (only the castle not included as it would be too much for a day trip). Our guide Arnau truly knew his Dali and spent the journey to Figueres summarising to us the life of Dali with excellent anecdotes about the great painter and personality. Loved the museum, did not know Dali had designed jewellery! The beating heart was . Lots of interesting stuff in the museum. Then off to Cadaqués for lunch (excellent recommendation by Arnau) and then to the Dali house in Port Lligat. Beautiful house with all original objects. Upon arrival back in Barcelona Arnau went round the bus asking if anybody needed any advice or tips and gave for instance recommendations for restaurants. He clearly went the extra mile in ensuring people had a successful excursion.
We had an excellent experience! Our guide/driver was Enrique who is quite knowledgeable, pleasant, and funny! The day trip was awesome, informative and a blast! The Dalí Museum is fantastic and the visit to his home was rather intimate and we felt privileged to walk around in his house! We were also able to squeeze in a brief side trip to Cap de Crevs, the easternmost part of Spain. Highly recommend it to all who love art, enjoy Dali‘s whimsical approach to life and want to escape Barcelona for a day! Great experience!
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.
