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.

Plus, there’s a guide to bring the sights to life and an opportunity to swim at a Costa Brava cove.

Day trip from Barcelona

Booked a day trip that took us to Girona, Pals and Calella de Palafrgell that was worth every dime. Girona was fun with all the Game of Throne references and it’s beautiful narrow cobblestone lanes and houses in the old quarter. Pals, a small medieval...More

Fun day out of the city

Loved this because we were booked to stay in Barcelona for 6-7 days and it was a nice way to explore and get out of the city. I wish we had a little more time at Costa brava and the beach but overall great experience....More
