YOUR PRIVATE GIRONA DALI TOUR

In one day trip

Are you interested in Salvador Dali’s art? Have you also heard of a lovely town called Girona that is also in the area? Would you like to visit both in one single day?

Salvador Dali was born in a town called Figueres, and there he created his own delirant museum – against his wife Gala’s will. It’s a surreal place designed to surprise you at each step you take, that will remind you of a fun fair.

Girona is a beautifully kept medieval town with a labyrinth of alleys and backstreets, an important Cathedral and a restored Jewish Section with a sad history. It is so scenic that it was chosen to be Braavos in the 6th season of Games of Thrones!

The short distance between these two towns makes it easy to explore Girona and Figueres in one day trip. But visiting both places on your own is pretty tricky as you need to be constantly paying attention to train schedules. Of course, unless you prefer to rent a car and drive. Plus at the Dali Museum there are no audioguides and you can feel a bit lost (almost cheated!) in front of such an explosion of weirdness. Getting oriented in Girona isn’t easy either, and you can miss so much without someone point out at the relevant details and bringing the stones into life.

This is why we’ve designed this day trip to Girona and Figueres that provides the comfort of a private driver to take you to the sites, and the efficiency and knowledge of our licensed guides to show you around.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This tour is our best-selling full day out of town (our half day best seller is Montserrat). So anyone wanting to see the top sites near Barcelona should do both tours, or at least one of them.

The Dali Museum and Girona tour is perfect for those interested in museums and art (bonus if there’s a special interest in Surrealism or Salvador Dali himself), but also enjoy strolling around historical towns (specially medieval areas or places with a Jewish past).

If you are traveling with kids, this tour can child-friendly if we focus more on the exploration of the sites than the academic part. Girona offers plenty of opportunities to explore, and legends and cool stories to listen to. But take into account that many Dali works have a strong (although somehow hidden) sexual component: depending on the maturity of your kids, your guide will chose to share it discreetly with the adults only, adapt it for the kids, or skip it totally. If your kids aren’t much into museums or art, you might want to consider skipping the Dali Museum and going to the beach after Girona instead.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please note that in the Dali Museum there are sections of steps and no elevator, and that in Girona there are also stairs and uphill cobblestone streets (although there is a little tourist train that you can take to spare you the walk). If you don’t have much stamina, you might want to take a shorter tour (6 hours) and visit only the Dali Museum or only Girona.

If you are a Salvador Dali fan, you can check here all our Dali Museum tours from Barcelona.

High speed train icon

CAN WE TAKE THE TRAIN?

I’m afraid that the train schedules rarely allow us to take you there just for 8 hours, and you are likely to end up having to pay for extra hours.

Also, take into account that having to pay for the guide’s train ride besides yours, and the taxis from the fast-speed train stations (from Figueres Vilafant to the Dali Museum, and to the Old Town of Girona and back), the train might be cost-efficient for couples, but not for larger parties.

Email us to book a tour of Girona and the Dali Museum by high speed train.

PRICING (2020 fees)

€550TOTAL PER TOUR (not per person)

ADDITIONAL COSTS

- Taxis in Barcelona (hotel to train station): Around €10/ride
- Taxis in Figueres and Girona (train stations to museum/old town and back): Around €10/ride
- AVE fast speed train: around €60/person (ROUND TRIP) - Fees fluctuate depending on time/date/availability just like airplane tickets.

Clients are requested to pay for the guide’s train tickets, that will be paid beforehand upon booking.

We were four women traveling for 5 days in Barcelona. We had 3 tours through booked through ForeverBarcelona. The third tour we took with Marta. We drove outside the city to the Dali Museum and Girona. Seeing the Dali through Marta’s eyes was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable and able to look for aspects we didn’t know were there. She also was able to give us tremendous insight into Dali’s life. Girona was a wonderful medieval town and we had a fabulous lunch at a delicious Catalan restaurant. All in all I would highly recommend using Marta and her tour service. They truly made our trip fun and interesting.

We had a great trip to Barcelona with the help of ForeverBarcelona Tours. Each day was perfect! Miriam took us on a day trip to Figueres and Girona. Worth the 90 minute drive! Make sure to add it to your itinerary.

Maria’s knowledge, sense of humor, and beautiful English kept us engaged during our all day trip to the scenic town of Girona and the Dali theater Museum in Figueres. Upon meeting and seeing our priorities, Maria quickly made some calls, adjusted our itinerary and with our day accordingly. She showed us historic highlights and Girona that we would not have known about without her. At the Jewish Museum, we were grateful for her sharing a “non white-washed” version of anti-Semitism in Spain. She encouraged us to recharge in a charming locale before we hit the fantastical theater Museum of Salvador Dali. There, she steered us through the overwhelming collection. Our time driving together was valuable: she briefed as for our sites and answered our questions about contemporary life in Barcelona. More special was her sense of humor and broad life experience that made our time, along with our gracious driver, Jorge, (provided by Foreverbarcelona), a delightful experience. I would hire Maria (and Foreverbarcelona) again in a “Salvador Dali breathing” heartbeat.

We were lucky enough to have Marta be our tour guide for 2 days. Our trip to Girona, Figueres and Barcelona could not have been more enjoyable. Marta was so knowledgeable about the sites we saw from Dali Museum to Gaudi sites.

We just returned from a week in Barcelona & used ForeverBarcelona for 2 of the days. We joined with another couple we were traveling with & hired Marta for 8 hrs to take us to Girona & the Dali Museum in Figueres. Marta hired the driver & van too. She was absolutely wonderful in every way: knowledgeable, outgoing, efficient. If money was no object, we would have hired her for the entire week!

Javier took 4 of us on three wonderful days in Barcelona – an overall driving trip around the city, a walking tour which included various Gaudi attractions and a drive to the Dali Museum and Girona. Javier’s insight to Dali explained (as much as possible) much of the craziness of this unbelievable artist. We will always remember this fantastic experience.

Figueres and Girona are Fabulous with Miriam! From start to finish our tour with Míriam was spectacular. We were traveling with a tour company and came early to see the Dali Museum which was not included in our tour. Traveling with Miriam made us realize that the possibility of traveling with our guide could open up unlimited possibilities with a local perspective. Her knowledge of Art, History, Politics and Human nature that she brings to the conversation is transforming. Traveling with just 4 of us, allowed multiple questions that cannot happen in a large group. Me and encouraged our banter and we are better informed because of her. She has our highest recommendation. Her energy is boundless.

We did the Figueres/Girona with Begoña. She and our driver were on time picking us up and returning us to our hotel. Begoña did a wonderful job telling us about Barcelona and the surrounding areas we passed through along the way. The tour of the Dali Museum as fun and educational. She expertly guided us around the building, pointing out things she liked and elaborating on things we had questions about. I am convinced that she is the perfect person to visit the museum with. She knows a lot about the works we saw and shared some interesting facts about Dali and Gala that we did not know. The town of Girona was charming.

Our day with Miriam was absolutely amazing. I booked a private tour for our family of 6 adults with Foreverbarcelona to the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres and then Girona. Miriam arranged an incredible day for us. Our driver, Jorge, drove us with ease and come forth in an immaculate Mercedes van while Miriam connected us with a network of headphones so that travel time was informative. Miriam is fun to be with, a great storyteller and specially she’s so knowledgeable about the history of the region and Salvador Dali. We learned about Dali and Gala and gain insights into the Dali’s works of art that we would never have seen without her knowledge. The museum is vast, demonstrating the masterpiece of Dali genius and range, impossible to navigate without expert guidance. We then went to Girona for lunch at the local Catalan restaurant. What a treat! We savored a delicious lunch sampling many local specialties. Our next stop was the historic center of Girona. While enjoying the extensive history of the town, we walked the history Jewish quarter and the setting for the Game of Thrones. Heading back to Barcelona in the van, we all agreed it that our day with Miriam exceeded all our expectations. Her knowledge of history and art is impressive and her passion for Barcelona and its Catalan heritage left us with a new appreciation for the region. From start to finish, we experience the best tour with the best guide. We enjoyed every minute of our day with Míriam.
