Perfect little day trip!
Meagan_M
, Jun 2022
What a relaxing day! I really enjoyed this trip and Monica was one of the nicest tour guides ever. There were around 40 or so people on the tour and she made sure to chat with every person. There were options on this trip to stick with the group for walking tours or do your own thing, like go to the beach. Great little day trip! Highly recommend!

Fantastic day in Southern Spain
Kirk_F

This tour was the highlight of our trip and we took quite a few day trips. Our guide Monica was excellent! Kept the tour on time and was very likable and responsible. The first stop in Lloret de Mar was quite nice. We took a stroll along the beach but instead of venturing into town more, we walked along the rocky coastal part and enjoyed great views, then had time for a drink along the boardwalk. The boat trip was next and we loved it. Started off foggy, but that broke and we enjoyed great views of the Costa Brava. The third stop at Tossa de Mar was our favorite. Wow, what a great town! Make sure you visit the medieval walled section which is picture perfect. The amount of time given on your own for this cruise is fantastic! Loved the free time and recommend this cruise wholeheartedly.

Overall, it was a fun day. The tour guide, Monica, was fantastic and personable and did an excellent job. I just don’t love large group tours. The stop in Lloret de mar was ok, very touristy town, not my favorite. The boat ride along the coast was beautiful and I loved Tossa de Mar. Such a fun little town. The medieval village was really fun to tour.

Wonderful day trip! We had an amazing guide that was very insightful and well-learned. We had some free time to explore the towns on our own. At Tossa de Mar, you must visit the old town. Incredible experience! I would definitely recommend if you want to discover the beautiful Costa Brava!

Relaxing Boat Ride from Costa Brava to Tosso de Mar
Vanessa_B
, May 2022
Costa Brava was unfortunately filled with fog on the morning we arrived, so we could not soak in the beauty. The shops in the area appeared to have a lot of items that looked used and the owners followed you around practically begging you to buy something. However, the boat ride to Tosso de Mar was quite relaxing and it was lovely to stop to see the fish in the clear blue water. Tosso de Mar was also beautiful from atop the tower and in the medieval town. I enjoyed the free time we had relaxing under a tree outlooking the water; however, my friend did some shopping and found the locals to be quite rude.

A mixed experience.

The tour was not totally in English which we prefer. The content presented on the bus was a little heavy on facts and light on humor in comparison to other tours. The first town visited was a waste of time except for the church. a very touristy and tacky town. The day improved with a boat tour to the next town which was fabulous. I would have liked it better if the bus took us to the second town for a good part of the day (excellent restaurants and touring) then took the boat to the first town to leave on the bus back to the city without staying there for more than 15 minutes.

Fun but Quick

This tour is great if you want to spend about half of the day getting a quick overview Costa Brava. If you want to spend more time there and really enjoy the beaches, I recommend maybe a longer tour

Great trip - Costa Brava 8-hour Trip from Barcelona
Katarzyna_B
, Jul 2019
I was a bit nervous at first to take my 4.5 year old on this trip with me but it turned out to be a perfect day for two of us, while my husband and my elder son were discovering different parts of Barcelona. The day was really well planned with enough time between formal walking tour, free time exploring, ferry and beach time. The areas we were able to see were absolutely stunning and worth visiting. Our guide Monica was super friendly and spoke good English. I would highly recommend it for families spending couple of days in Barcelona. It was also a great value for money - with a child free ticket.

This was an absolutely lovely excursion. It was easy to book, very close to our hotel and gave us a beautiful experience of seeing the isles of Costa Brava! This is a must do while in Barcelona.

This was my favorite day trip during our stay in Barcelona. Loved seeing this mid-century village, the beautiful countryside and wonderful boat ride. Our tour guide was great, the pace was comfortable, and would go there again in a heart beat.

Good taste of Costa Brava
Nicholas_P

This tour offers exactly what you'd expect, transport on a bus with a tour guide pointing out a few things on the way, then 45min of free time to walk around, then a boat ride up the coast to Tossa de Mar. Then you have the option of walking up the old castle like structure with a guide or just free time. Then its back on the bus for a ride home. Our big complaint was the air conditioning on the way home was almost non existent, I'm not sure what happened but it was super hot after a long day outside.

We really enjoyed this tour! The highlight is the stop in Tossa de Mar. It is an absolutely beautiful coastal village with an abundance of great restaurants and a beautiful medieval town. You get about two and a half to three hours of free time here which is more than enough to shop around and have a wonderful lunch! The tour is also offered in many languages. We were so impressed with our guide! We heard her speak everything from Spanish to Catalan to English to French to Dutch. Amazing!

Overall good tour!
Tracy P

We boarded a regular tour bus and began almost on time. It’s a little over an hour to the first stop. The first village is really touristy. We had 45 minutes there. We then waited on the beach for the boat to pick us up. We ended up standing in the sun for over 20 minutes waiting for the boat. It is actually a ferry that runs between villages. It was pretty crowded but we got seats. It was also very difficult to board. Had to walk down a steep, slick ramp. After this all was great. The scenery was beautiful! The village of Tossa da Mar was so interesting and gorgeous! We took the guided walking tour and then had lunch. Many places to choose from. Had plenty of time to shop. All in all a great tour!

I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was professional and very informative. The drive up the coast was scenic and relaxing. We had lunch in the quiet seaside town of Tossa overlooking the beach and water enjoying great pizza and sangria. I would recommend a walk to the Castle as it has very picturesque views over the Mediterranean. A very enjoyable tour.
