Full description

Explore the stunning landscapes of the Costa Brava on a full-day tour to Girona from Barcelona. Depart the Catalan capital for the city of Girona, where the remains of its Roman and medieval past make an interesting contrast to the present-day city.

Get lost in a maze of narrow streets, and venture into the best-preserved Jewish Ghetto in Europe. Admire the cathedral, home to the widest Gothic nave in the world. Marvel at the brightly colored houses on the banks of the Onyar River. Then, transfer to the breathtaking landscapes and villages of the Costa Brava, stopping at the medieval village of Pals en route.

Stroll down cobblestone streets, and enjoy some of the best panoramas of the Mediterranean Sea whipped up by the fierce Tramontana wind. Marvel at the fields and plains of Empordà extending to the horizon. Discover dramatic views of the Catalan coast, surrounded by green mountains, sheer cliffs, and small villages of whitewashed houses. Stop in the traditional fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, and feel as if you have been transported back to yesteryear. Explore the pristine landscape of Calella, and discover the ancient pathways of the Caminos de Ronda.

Once used by fishermen, watchmen and smugglers, these paths allow you to explore the virgin coast at your leisure, where you will discover popular beaches and inaccessible coves and cliffs. Take a dip in crystal clear water, surrounded by unspoiled nature.

Gaspar was an EXCELLENT tour guide. This was the best tour we have experienced in our many travels. The order in which we visited each area was nice because it never felt as if we were sitting in the van too long. It was a beautiful day and Gaspar took the time to educate us on what we were seeing. Gaspar was extremely accommodating and flexible! This tour was the highlight of our trip and we were so glad we chose this one!

We had an amazing time on this tour!! We visited so many beautiful and historic villages and got to fit so much into one day. Our tour guide Manu was incredible and truly made our group feel like a family. We enjoyed our day with a great group and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. You have to do this tour!!

Our guide, Manu, picked us up from our hotel on time and we reached our destinations quite early. Manu was very friendly and knowledgeable. He recommended some pastries that we should try in Girona and it was delicious. He also told us which spots were used to film Game of thrones. We were able to take many beautiful pictures and he gave us free time to walk around as well. Costa Brava was beautiful and it was the perfect way to end our trip in Spain. My favourite would be the medieval towns. Perhaps headphones could be given as at times the walking pace was quite fast and we could not catch up with the group.Apart from that it was a memorable experience and a perfect choice to tour Girona and Costa Brava.
