What people are saying about Calella de Palafrugell

Had an amazing day trip to Girona, the medieval town of Pals and then Llafranc beach. Gaspar was our tour guide and was excellent in every way. He communicated clearly and in advance about our pick up time at the hotel. The van seated our group of 8 comfortably and was air conditioned. Gaspar was very knowledgeable about the history of all three places we visited. After his walking tours in Girona and Pals, Gaspar gave us solo time in each location. He is very respectful of the locals who live in the places we visited which I appreciated. We ended the day with our visit to the beach. We were able to enjoy 2 hours of free time before heading back to Barcelona. I would highly recommend this excursion and I wouldn’t change a thing. It was very much a highlight of my stay in Barcelona. Gracias!
