Departure Time

8:30 AM
Meet a guide at your accommodations in Barcelona between 8:30am and 9:30am (the exact departure time is up to you), then begin the 63-mile (102-km) trip to the Catalan city of Girona. Upon arrival in the city, take a walking tour of the medieval walls, cobblestone streets, and the Jewish neighborhood, which is among the best-preserved in Europe. Visit a stunning Gothic cathedral, then head to the edge of the Onyar River, where tiny, brightly colored houses line the riverbanks.

The next stop of the day is the Costa Brava, where you can stretch your legs again on a walking tour of Pals' narrow lanes, plazas, and viewpoints that look out towards the Mediterranean Sea and the Empordà Plains. Continue along the Catalan coast to the traditional fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, and explore the scenic surrounding area. This is the perfect place to stop for a seafood lunch, and your guide can help you find the ideal place to eat. If desired, you can take a walk on the Caminos de Ronda, an ancient pathway that leads to coves, cliffs, and beaches—bring a bathing suit if you want to take a dip.

At the end of the afternoon, begin the return trip to Barcelona, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Tour: Girona, Pals and Costa Bravo
, Feb 2020
Enjoyed our ride to the countryside, into beautiful walled cities - especially lived the small city of Pals. Our tour guide Matt was great!
Daniel was awesome!
, Oct 2019
We had such a blast with Daniel! It was just two of us, and he took us around Girona, Pals and Callela de Palafrugell. He’s also a Game if Thrones fan and was more than happy to help us recreate some scenes. ;) He was knowledgeable, friendly, and it felt like we were with someone we had known for years. Would definitely do this again!
Great day

Hands down the best tour we experienced in Spain! Our guide Mauriusz was extremely knowledgable about the history and places in Spain. He took us to a great beach towns, along Costa Brava & we had the best meal in Spain at a small fishing village in Tossa. He also knew a great Gelato place in Girona. It was the highlight of the trip! Beautiful scenery, rich culture,incredible Paella & seafood!
We had a wonderful guide on this...

We had a wonderful guide on this trip. We took in so many beautiful sights up the coast and had time to explore several medieval towns. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch of local dishes while overlooking the brightest blue waters of the area. We had a beautiful day full of new things and enjoyed every minute of the tour.
