About

This private day trip eliminates the work: with a personal guide, private vehicle, and carefully planned itinerary. All you need do is enjoy: first visiting Figueres’ Dali Museum, and then his Port Lligat house near Cadaques or Pubol Castle in Palamos, depending on the season.

My husband and I took the day trip to the Salvador Dali museum in Figueres and his former home in Costa Brava in February 2019. It was exceptional, truly a highlight of our time in Barcelona. It's a long day, but totally worth it. I always like to know in advance about opportunities for food, drink, and bathroom breaks, so I will share these details. I brought a small backpack with water, snacks, and a sun hat and was glad to have these items.

First, you meet at the office, which is easy to find and has bathrooms. the van was comfortable (it was a minivan that sat about 10, not a big tour bus). Our tour guide Ana was delightful - very energetic and informative. We were a small group, which was nice. If you care to bring a snack or beverage, you can't eat in the van, but there was time to eat and drink before going into the museum and after coming out. There was also a small cafe that we stopped in while Ana parked the van. There were bathrooms there and also opportunities for coffee, food, and other beverages. Of course there were ample bathrooms in the museum.

When we arrived at the museum, Ana kept us together as a group for a short time and gave us details on some key Dali works. After that, she turned us loose for over an hour to explore on our own. The museum is every bit as zany, quirky, and full of unexpected delights as you would imagine.

From there we went to the Costa Brava. The drive was extremely beautiful, winding and mountainous. We had time to walk the lovely coast and have lunch. There were several restaurants and a cute bakery. My husband and I had a picnic on a bench. I can't express how scenic and lovely the Costa Brava is.

We met back up with the group at a designated time to proceed to Dali's former home. This cost a few Euros extra and some of the people in our group chose to opt out and further explore the Costa Brava. They missed out! The house was spectacular. We had a good guided tour and got to see where Dali painted (including a contraption he had built to raise and lower large canvasses). The bedroom was multiple levels and highly decorated. Best of all was the pool area and the extensive paths and gardens, all overlooking the stunning ocean. There were bathrooms at this location.

The ride home was long, around 2 hours. I think many of us dozed off. We got back to town around 7:30.

I had been on the fence about taking this day trip because it is not inexpensive and I wasn't sure I wanted to take a whole day away from sight seeing in Barcelona. I'm very glad we did - it was truly a highlight of our visit. Nice to get outside the city and great to see some fascinating art and learn a lot more about Dali. Highly recommend!

Hello, What a lovely, detailed review you have made. I really appreciate the effort to send it, and give us your feedback. I will let Anna know, for sure. I understand it is not the cheapest tour, but it looks like you had a great time and got you good value for money. Best regards, Robert

We had a great day on this day trip from Barcelona. Feliciano, our guide, was wonderful. Not only was he knowledgeable about Dali, but he actually told us in depth details about his life and his art. Listening to him made the time fly on the road trip to Figueres. Feliciano went out of his way for us to make the tour the best it could be.
Dali was a mad genius, as can be seen in his museum. Do not miss his jewerly collection! Cadaques is a stunningly beautiful coastal town. Feliciano gave us suggestions where to eat, no matter what we wanted to experience. Finally we visited Dali's home where you see beautiful views and a crazy eclectic collection that mirrors Dali's life.
You really can not go wrong with this tour, you will definitely enjoy it. If you get Feliciano for your tour guide, you are LUCKY. You will walk away from this tour feeling not only you know Dali, but you also have a friend in Barcelona.

Explore Catalunya and this tour completely exceed my expectations - it was the highlight of our trip to Spain!

When I first ordered the tickets the international charge on my card was rejected. When I called Explore Catlunya an english speaking agent picked up the phone and offered me immediate assistance. Amazing!

On the day of the tour it said to meet outside the Palau de la Música Catalana, so we assumed that meant look for a tour guide with an umbrella. In reality we went into the Explore Catlunya offices for a forma check-in procedure and met with our guide who explained the timeline for the day. I was very impressed with the organization and efficiency of the check-in process.

We took a small coach with the 8-ish other people on our tour. Our guide was so knowledge about Gaudi and made the hour long bus ride go by in an instant with all of the great history and colorful detail she provided. Upon arrival at the museum she coordinated our ticket pickup and gave us a quick 15 minute tour highlighting important pieces and areas she recommended - we then had about an hour and a half to explore on our own.

We then headed to the Costa Brava where half the group stayed for the rest of the day and the other half ate lunch and then went on to Dali's house/museum. The cost of these tickets was not included in the tour price but was very reasonable (around $10). The Costa Brava was absolutely breathtaking and felt like we were in Greece - there were restaurants right on the beach and an antique market in the square. Dali's house should not be missed! They keep the tours very small and it was truly an intimate look at his private life.

This tour exceeded our expectations in terms of value, price and customer service. I could not recommend the tour or the company more highly.

My wife & I booked Explore Catalunya tours for a 10 hour day from Barcelona to Figueres. Rod, our guide, was exceptional. His high level of knowledge, along with his insights and passion for Catalonia, were inspiring. He readily and very capably answered all of our questions and gave us insight into the economic, political and cultural differences existing in Spain. His passion for Dali helped us to better understand the genius of this complicated artist. We would highly recommend him and the tour company!
Thanks again for a most wonderful experience. Toronto Canada

I had wanted to visit the Dali Museum for many years and it finally happened. Our guide, Rodrigo, was excellent! He picked us up (just my husband and me), on time in our hotel lobby and got waters for us for the ride. He was so informative providing an overview about the trip and sharing many details about the areas we drove through. When we arrived at the Museum, he shared details about Dali's work and life and guided us to select pieces of work, providing more details specific to the paintings and answered our questions.

He then gave us time to wander about on our own and explore more work in detail. He gave us a meeting point for the next part of the tour, which was a drive to Port Ligat for lunch, where he told us of recommended lunch spots. After a lunch (on our own), he picked us up drove us on to Salvador Dali's home. He walked through the house with us and offered more info following another guide who took us through each room.

He was very courteous, asking us if we wanted cold drinks or needed to use the restrooms along the way. On our drive back to the hotel, Rod and my husband enjoyed talking about paella recipes and he continued to provide many great historical details about the countryside and about Dali and other artists. 

Rodrigo was an excellent tour guide and felt like an old friend by the end of the trip. I couldn’t recommend a better person to spend a day with to learn more about the life and art of Dali.

It is a long day trip, start it at 8:30 am until 7:30 pm. Our tour guide ( Arnold) was excellent, he spoke English very well and provided us a lot of great information about Dali’s life. He was a very friendly and knowledgeable person. We started at Figure , Dali’s museum and continued to visit Cadaques, a beautiful and magnificent city almost at boarder of Spain and France. We followed to see Dali’s house and we ended up to high point’s of Cadaques, a place with a beautiful view of ocean. During our visit at Figure, we saw a church that Dali’s had baptism and funeral. It was a long day but it was worth it.
