Great job by Jordi
Dec. 2019
It was cold, damp, and rainy but the scenery was beautiful. Jordi was quite familiar with the area as he often times visited relatives there so his story was first-hand. The lunch was a spectacular feast. This tour with "Explore Catalunya" should not be missed.

Perfect little trip
Migel was our tour guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He started with explaining brief history about barcelona when we were leaving the city to go to Costa Brava. The trip itself was perfectly planned to visit three places - Beach in Blanes, lunch at Cala restaurant and end the trip in the medieval town of Tossa.
Beach at Blanes was beautiful with the cleanest water i've ever seen. Although its a public beach there was hardly one or two people in the entire beach (due to off season). Water was cold to go for a swim. Lunch at Cala was awesome. It was more like a Catalonian cultural experience learning about different dishes. Migel also taught us how to make the garlic bread. It was a LOT of food. So please save space in your belly. Tossa was beautiful. medieval town and streets were absolutely gorgeous. We also discovered a pretty little beach from the top of one of the lighthouses. Overall a perfectly planned and spaced trip for an 10 hour window. We were back in the city by 6:30 pm. If you're looking for a short day trip then i highly recommend this.

Fantastic trip!
Nov. 2019
We had a great time during the tour! The lunch was awesome (a lot of food!!!!) and our tour guide was great at explaining history of each place we visited. I would recommend taking this tour to anyone. If you're going during summer, definitely bring a swimsuit. The water was gorgeous! We went in November and temperature was about 70F, not a weather to take a deep dive but it was nice to play on the beach and soak our feet in the water.

Also take an opportunity to go through botanical gardens. They are breathtaking.

No complains at all. It was a tour worth for the price!

When recently in Barcelona, I decided to take this tour and it was worth every penny. The times were perfectly allotted for each activity and we were even able to enjoy the beach. I totally recommend this tour to everyone visiting Barcelona. It was the highlight of our whole trip

Great Day
Aug. 2019 • Couples
We went on the day excursion to Costa Brava which took us to the towns of Blanes and Tossa. After stopping at Blanes for a few hours and enjoying the small, intimate beach with the clearest water I had ever seen, we proceeded to enjoy a traditional three course Mediterranean lunch. We then continued on to Tossa to again explore the small beach town. Our tour guide, Xavier, was phenomenal and took the time to explain the landmarks we were seeing and also answered any questions anyone had. I highly recommend this trip as it is a good trip to get away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona for a day.

Wonderful Experience!!!
Apr. 2019 • Friends
This was a wonderful time. Really fun day with our tour guide who was very experienced and fun. His English was really good so we didn't have to deal with the language barrier. The coast is beautiful, the buildings are amazing, the botanical garden (entrance tickets included in price) was nice but not in bloom, the restaurant that we stopped at for drinks on the beach was very nice(The drinks at this location are not included in the price). Then we stopped for an exclusive lunch where the food is explained to you (lunch is included in the price also). Then you still explore some more afterwards. It was a long day but there was just enough split between walking and relaxing that made it the perfect day. Definitely recommend this! Especially if you want to get out of the city and see some of the countryside. If the weather is nice take beach towels and stuff with you because it is not provided.

Beautiful day visiting and learning about Costa Brava
Oct. 2018 • Family
We were a group of three generations that all enjoyed this trip. We saw two different beautiful beaches. The views from the picturesque gardens seemed like they were out of a magazine. Absolutely amazing. Our guide - Laura was very knowledgeable on many aspects of the area and Spain's cultural history! She was a a great host. Highly recommend Laura and this tour.
