Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dali Theatre-Museum, Gala-Salvador Dali Square, 5, 17600, Figueres Spain

For sure you'll still get surprised by Salvador Dalí. This surrealist painter was born in Figueres, within L'Empordà and la Costa Brava terrain, and the place where the Dalí Theatre-Museum is located.
In your visit to the Dalí Theatre-Museum you'll enjoy a unique experience living the works and thoughts of one of the most well-known personalities of the 20th century. A walk all around his life (1904-1989) and his professional career, from his earliest artistic works to the surrealists creations of the last years.
There is no doubt that the Theatre-Museum is his great work. He actually decided to construct it inside the ruins of the old Municipal Theatre that had been destroyed in the Civil War. Dalí wanted to leave all his legacy and amazing works in Figueres and offer visitors a real and unique experience of getting inside his mind and surrealist world.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Girona Cathedral (Catedral), Placa de la Catedral, s/n, 17004 Girona Spain

A city of 2000 years old where Iberians, Romans, Arabs, Greeks, Christians and Jews left their footprint. The result is the following reasons:
The Old Town. Do not miss all the medieval streets that make up the old town. Those which are a reminder of the medieval guilds and now are plenty of cafes and shops that keep the spirit of the area.
El Call - Jewish Quarter. For sure one of the best medieval Jewish quarters in Europe, here you can find the legacy they left after 6 centuries living with their own laws until they were expelled as all Jews in Spain late back in 1492. Old buildings, narrow streets and lovely views. What else can you ask for?
Houses on the Onyar River. Another must-see is the colorful houses that line along the river Onyar: red, orange and yellow buildings all along. You can also find several bridges that connect the old town with the rest of the city.
Cathedral of Girona. During your visit to Girona you'll enjoy the Cathedral, that arise at the top of a hill. It has 90 steps and the variety of styles explains the history of this building. You will find Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque elements on it. Do not miss the Creation Tapestry found in the museum.

This was perfect from pick-up to drop off. Everything went smoothly and efficiently. Jessica was a very knowledgeable guide and had lots of interesting information to add. Would definitely recommend this tour if you love Dali. The jewels were my favorite!

The whole experience was fantastic. Jessica our guide lives in Girona so we had first hand knowledge of this incredible town. The Dali Museum was amazing, full of surprises.

We had an outstanding tour. The BGB staff was very well oraganized and professional, especially Jessica, the guide for our tour. She ensured that our tour ran smoothly, minimized wait times, and avoided crowded portions of the museum when possible. She adeptly managed the tour to see all the major works and provided great insights on the artist and his works. In Girona we had an excellent historical walking tour that also included visits to recent Game of Thrones filming locations and scenic vistas. Overall, an excellent day thanks to Jessica!!

We loved seeing the Dali Museum with a knowledgeable guide who spoke English perfectly. Every part of the tour was handled perfectly---taxi to the train station, high speed rail, guide to pick us up, tour, train ride to Girona (don't miss it), tour, and train ride back to Barcelona. One of the best tours we've ever had. Jessica Casanovas was an excellent guide.

Our guide, Anna was absolutely amazing and is an encyclopedia on " Salvador Dali". I'm not a museum person normally but Dali's work was so unique and innovative, I enjoyed every moment. . We did not have that in advance and there was definitely some confusion but it all turned out fine.Without Anna, it would have been enjoyable, but with her knowledge on his work, his personality and personal history, it was a tremendous experience!

Hint: Be sure you have the itinerary in advance and know where you're being picked up, the time, the train station, etc
