I was a little anxious because the price was much lower than other tour companies, but I felt it was a wonderful tour worth more than the price. It was a pity that there was no hotel pick-up, but the meeting place was easy to understand at the tour desk, clean and comfortable. The only hot thing was the day of the bus which was quite warm, but the air conditioning was too effective and it was very cold. Everyone says it's cold, and I think it would be better to have a warm clothing that can be taken off and put on. The guide woman took pictures and was very kind.

Really recommend this tour. Lovely to visit a coastal town, a medieval town and the wonderful Dali museum. Great balance of guided walking tour and free time to explore. Very comfortable coach. The guide was excellent - good humoured, well informed, communicative. She made this a really special day.

Fantastic day that difficult is forgotten

Incredible day that I spent on this tour that I recommend here, strongly. I met the beauty of some beautiful villages of the Costa Brava and finally: the Dalí Theater Museum that surprised me greatly. From here I want to thank Laura for her professionalism and her sympathy.
