Girona and Costa Brava Tour from Barcelona
From US$110.43
Checking off the medieval city of Girona and villages of Costa Brava in a day from Barcelona is a big ask if you're doing it independently. This tour lets you scratch both off your list with no transportation worries—whisking you to Girona and two other historical towns you might otherwise easily miss. Plus, there’s a guide to bring the sights to life and an opportunity to swim at a Costa Brava cove.
What to Expect
Board an air-conditioned vehicle in central Barcelona, and travel through the picturesque Catalan countryside to Girona.

Learn about the city’s long past from your guide, and on arrival, enjoy a walking tour of the Old Town. See the 11th-century Cathedral and Roman-era walls, and get free time to stroll independently.

Continue to Pals, a cobbled town coiled beneath the remains of a castle and, after an introductory tour, enjoy free time to explore. Then, pass Begur’s medieval castle on route to the Costa Brava seaside village of Calella de Palafrugell, famous for its rugged coves.

Get free time for lunch (own expense) or to relax, perhaps choosing to swim from a cove or stroll around the clifftop Cap Roig botanical gardens (own expense).

After reconvening at a pre-arranged time, your tour finishes at the original starting point in Barcelona.

Excellent Tour

Tour Guide/Driver: Matthias Wunsch Enjoyable and highly informative tour. 6 passengers plus Matthias. Excellent information on the visits plus much extra information on all things ‘Catalan’. Matthias was thoughtful and courteous about pick up and drop off in the different towns.

Explore Catalunya

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Miquel and the historical perspective he brought to our trip to Girona, Pals and Calella de Palafrugell. Lots of stairs, but spectacular scenery at the end of the climbs.
