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.

We had a great experience with our guide Ruben! He was really passionate about sharing the history of all our stops, made good recommendations and was a safe driver! He was right on time for the pick up and we really enjoyed the tour. Would totally recommend booking if you don't have much time in Spain!

Andre our guide was wonderful! The places we went were so beautiful! Saw many spots from game of thrones filming and he even pulled out clips of the scenes filmed at the sites! Super interesting. Castle walking tour part was sooo pretty! The beach was a highlight for sure - only suggestion would be we would have liked to spend a bit more time at the beach.
