This was such a fun way to spend a day outside of Barcelona. I learned so much about the history of each place, and Costa Brava was absolutely beautiful. I made friends with other solo travelers on the trip and we split some paella for lunch while overlooking the beach. Judith is an AMAZING and very patient tour guide. She spent time with each of us on the ride back to Barcelona giving us personalized recommendations for the rest of our stays in the city. Highly recommend this experience!

Wonderful! Xavier, our guide was fabulous! He was knowledgeable and super friendly. Gave us good bkground history in entertaining way with lots of interesting side tidbits (especially abt Dali and his wife. Who knew?!) Had a wonderful time swimming and relaxing at beach. Beautiful sites in Pal and Genoa. Costa Brava gorgeous. Good time had by all.

Interesting tour! A bit pity to travel to the beach on a cloudy day, but it is still worth exploring. I love Pals and the beach the most.

It gave us a variety of experience all in one day.From a historic place down to a tranquil coast and lovely beach.

Xavier was a fabulous guide. There was enough time to explore. I enjoyed the small group
