Stop At: Dali Theatre-Museum, Figueres, Province of Girona, Catalonia

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), Girona, Province of Girona, Catalonia

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.

From start to finish, this tour was perfection. We were met at the hotel at precisely the time given to us by the tour company. They took us to the train station in which someone was waiting for us when the ride dropped us off. They gave us the tickets to the train and made sure we boarded it correctly. The tour guide introduced herself on the train and guided us step by step. Because this was not a bus tour, the number of people was smaller. We had only ten. The tour guide gave us a thorough tour of the museum and they gave us free time to further explore. We signed up for the Girona tour as well. The others on our tour only stayed for the museum part. So we basically had only my wife and I on that tour. The tour guide was very informative, friendly, easy to talk to, and personable and we thought out of our time in Barcelona, this was the highlight of our trip. Our guide who was great was named Jessica Casanovas. I would highly recommend her.

This trip was worth the . The company is very well organized and the people are very friendly. We originally booked the tour with the Optional Girona tour, but once the day arrived we decided it might be best to skip the second part and head back to Barcelona to get ready for our flight back the next morning. Jessica, our guide, was amazing at getting our tickets changed for the train so we could go directly back to Barcelona. She also was very knowledgable about Dali and the surrounding area. She made the tour of the museum and the area memorable and worth the trip. I didn't really know anything about Dali before this trip, but now I am a fan. The high speed train was also a neat experience and glad we made the trip. Again, I can't say enough good things about this company and their organizational skills and also about Jessica. Her help was greatly appreciated and made two teenagers very happy!!!

This was far and away the best tour I have ever been on. Dali is such a complicated and amazing individual. The tour guide Jessica had such passion and really gave proper context to his works. It was so good, I would go back.

We were picked up promptly at our Hotel and guided to the fast train, from Barcelona to Figueres, where we were met by our incredibly knowledgeable guide Laura. Dali was a complex genius and Laura made him come to life with her explanations of all we saw. Then on to Girona, a beautiful town With Game of Throne locations as an extra. This is a tour not to be missed!
