Stop At: Living It Tours, Barcelona, Catalonia

Leave Barcelona behind and head to a beautiful small village of whitewashed houses in Costa Brava. Walking there, with your expert guide, along with the rocky coast following the historical “Camí de Ronda” path, and uncover the impressive pine forests next to the sea and the most beautiful natural bays of Costa Brava.
It is only accessible on foot, so be prepared to go through a holed rock and find fisherman shelters, Dali's hut, sandy beaches (where important movies have been filmed) and rocky bays.
Later on, visit the Calella de Palafrugell, a delightful town that has houses reaching the seafront which it will be the perfect place for a leisurely lunch in any of the traditional restaurants where you can enjoy eating an authentic paella.
The tour continues in a Medieval village (Pals or Peratallada). Uncover the cobblestones Gothic quarter of Pals, the city walls, the Gothic windows, the arches, the wells, the thresholds of the doors and a wide range of interesting nooks and crannies. On the other hand, you certainly won't regret deciding to visit Peratallada. It boasts one of the most important medieval quarters in Catalonia. This fortified town, in the municipality of Forallac, is protected by three walls and a moat, watched over by the castle and its keep.

We had a great experience on this tour! Our guide Joan was very courteous and helpful. We appreciated his laid back style as he led us around the Costa Brava hiking trail. The sights were absolutely gorgeous. We even had the chance to swim in the crystal-clear Mediterranean water at the spot of our choosing. Afterwards, we had a delicious lunch in the Medieval village of Pals. We would definitely recommend to anyone up for an adventure!

Our tour guide Mark was a wealth of knowledge, the scenery stunning in all the towns and the lunch absolutely outstanding! The hike was easy to moderately challenging and the amount of time spent was just right. I know this is a new tour and there may be some kinks to work out, but otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable time and well worth the cost.

Mark, if you still have our photos, please share them with me via What'sApp!

This tour was a good way to get a feel for the Costa Brava if you don't have a car. We visited Palamos and could walk part of the beautiful Cami de Ronda. We had a quick lunch in Calella de Palafrugell (although I would have liked more time here to explore this little beach town). Our last stop was at Pals. Our driver was good and let us customize how we wanted to spend our time. We didn't really need him to explain a lot of things since we preferred to be on our own. The only thing I would change would be to have the pick up point be at our hotel, or somewhere more central to Barri Gothic. Getting to the pick up point required taking the metro and walking a ways, and was a huge hassle since it was kind of out of the way. Overall though, I'm glad we did the tour since it was basically like having a private driver all day.
