Full description

Explore the rugged coastline of charming coves, pine forests, and crystal-clear water on the Girona coast with this day trip from Barcelona. Travel aboard an air-conditioned bus to Lloret de Mar, and take a boat to to Tossa de Mar for a guided tour. 

Depart from bus station "Estació del Nord" in central Barcelona in the morning for the drive to Lloret de Mar, the main tourist village of the Costa Brava. Upon arrival, find yourself immersed in the hustle and bustle of this vibrant town.

Stroll along the promenade for breathtaking views of the majestic Lloret Beach and the hidden Sa Caleta. Walk through the narrow streets, which retain an ambiance of Lloret’s maritime past. Uncover the modernist architecture of the Church of St. Roma.

Climb on board the Dofijets, and sail to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. Gaze at the characteristic landscape as you cruise, a procession of huge cliffs that have been shaped by the sea and wind into fanciful forms over centuries.

Arrive at Tossa de Mar and explore its beaches, caves, and Medieval remains. Explore the Old Town of Tossa, listed as an artistic-historic monument since 1931, and one of the few remaining fortified medieval towns on the Catalan coast. 

Discover traditional fishing neighborhoods, such as Sa Roqueta. Have free time for lunch in Tossa, where your can check-out an array of gastronomic offerings or visit the boutique shops. In the afternoon, head back to Barcelona by bus.

Great tour. My family and I had a great time. They give you a lot of free time and you can do a lot if you choose not to follow the guide. If you want to go swimming instead of going to the old town, you have enough time. They don't mention it but bring a bathing suit the beach and the water are amazing. Once you get off the boat you can go straight to the water once you know where the meeting point is at the allotted time. Pay attention because you will not go back on the boat at the end, they will walk back to a bus for the ride home. Definitely do this tour and enjoy.

I think, it was a very well organised tour. Would certainly recommend half day over full day. We as a family like breaks on our own and this tour was perfect for that rather than running around from one place to other. The places we went were amazing and beautiful indeed.

Hello! My excursion was on June 15, 2022. I live in Norway and I went on vacation to Barcelona and I selected this excursion and I had a great experience with the guides Mónica and José since with their great knowledge they taught us many interesting things about Lloret del Mar. like from Tossa del Mar, they were also very kind, friendly, helpful and treated us with great affection and respect. Monica with her great knowledge explained very well in both English and Spanish. On this excursion I met Elaine, a nice Brazilian who was my traveling companion and we had a great time, which also made the excursion more enjoyable and enjoyable for me because of her pleasant company. Without a doubt, I would repeat it again, so I recommend it 100 percent since you meet new friends and knowledge is enriched.
