Spectacular Spain - Costa Brava not to be missed.

A spectacular day trip from Barcelona exploring Girona, Pals and Calella. So much history combined with beautiful natrual scenery. Our guide Matt was a master at maintaining the small goup atmosphere and navigated away from large groups to keep the trip feeling uncrowded. A great lunch venue on the waterfront at Calella and enough free time to soak in the atmosphere of this special part of Spain. Thanks Matt for a day tip full of memories that will last a lifetime!
Great 1-day trip from Barcelona

Fun sample of life in Spain outside the big city. Manu kept the group smiling and hustled all day to maximize our experience. Even clouds and showers didn’t dampen the spirit of the group as shown in this picture at a bonus spot high atop Costa Brava.
Great trip great guide

We spent the day with Anatoli touring Girona and Costa Brava.
We loved seeing the Game of Thrones filming locations. Anatoli even pulled up the scenes on his phone from the show to compare what we were seeing. He took great pictures of those in our group. He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited. After the tour he followed up with restaurant recommendations and even returned my water bottle that I left in his van. Highly recommend.
Great day out.

What a fabulous day, so much to see. And Gaspar was just lovely, also very knowledgeable and tolerant. Would recommend for sure for anyone who is visiting Barcelona.
Don't Miss this Amazing Tour and a Daylong Escape from the Crowds of Barcelona!

If you want to escape the crowds in Barcelona, this is the perfect choice to visit 3 beautiful places.
I was picked up in a comfortable minivan at my hotel by our charming and extremely knowledgeable guide Anatoli at 8:30AM for this daylong tour.
First up was the very beautiful medieval city of Girona and it's many points of interest narrated by Anatoli. The stairs of the cathedral was a setting for the high drama of Game of Thrones as were other locations.
Anatoli ably describes all the historic locations and makes sure you get a picture of yourself in all of the beautiful settings
After Girona, we drove through the impressive countryside to the charming medieval village of Pals and then on to the gorgeous unspoiled Costa Brava to the fabulous seaside resort of Calella de Palafrugell, where I would be happy to spend a month. Beautiful coves with sandy beaches with the beautiful village and wonderful seafood restaurants and stores. We had more than enough time for a leisurely lunch and stroll and a swim if you like.
This is a true Mediterranean gem and NO high rise apartments which have spoiled so much of Spain's coast.
I highly recommend this and our terrific guide made it all so worthwhile and fun.
He had us back to our hotels by 6:30.
Make sure to ask for Anatoli as your guide!!
