I really enjoyed this day trip to Figueres and Cadaques from Barcelona. Enrique was a wonderful guide and told us lots of interesting facts along the way to the Dali museum. There were only 5 of us plus Enrique, so a very comfortable ride in the van. The Dali museum was a lot of fun and we had plenty of time to look at everything. It was raining, so once in Cadaques, we really didn't do any beach time, but just had a relaxing lunch. Enrique took us out to Cap de Creus, a beautiful natural area at the tip of the peninsula, and what a stunning view! This was the best part of the day. Thanks Enrique and Explore Catalunya for a great tour, and for working with me to change the date of my tour so I didn't get cancelled for not enough people. Great tour company.

Kurt was great! Very knowledgeable about Dali! He was there early for our pickup. He drove very safely throughout the trip. We always felt safe about COVID and cleanliness issues. The museum was very interesting filled in with Kurt’s excellent narrative. The drive down to Cadaquès was very nice and what a beautiful seaside town to have lunch in. There are many restaurants to choose from. Then on to Dali’s house. What an eclectic place. I would find it very relaxing with lots of creative energy flowing through the house to write, paint, or just create! The views were amazing!

Fantastic day trip. A must for a lover of Dali's works. Enrique, our guide, was excellent. If I could change one thing it would be to shorten the time in Cadaques and extend the time in the Dali Museum in Figueras. 1.5 hours in the Dali Museum is doable but it felt rushed. 30 min to an hour more would have made it less so. But otherwise, highly recommend this tour. Truly a small group tour experience. A highlight of my stay in Catalunya!

The tour was excellent from beginning to end. The tour guide - Rodrigo - was full of information about Dali that helped explain his art. More than enough time was allowed for independent viewing at the museum, as well as for activities planned in the afternoon such as lunch and a visit to Dali's home.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. It was great tj get out if Barcelona and see some of the countryside and beaches.
