Mariusz was a wonderful, knowledgable and experienced tour guide! Our half day tour of Barcelona provided us a great overview of the city and it was a perfect introduction on our first day. On another day we had the opportunity to go to Figueres and visit the Dali museum and to walk the streets of the nearby town of Girona. I highly recommend both tours, and especially with Mariusz!

Description

Our guide will pick you up at your accommodation and take you to Girona in a comfortable private vehicle.

The culture and traditions of the past are reflected throughout the city. Get lost in its maze of narrow streets and get ready to travel through time in the best-preserved Jewish neighbourhood in Europe. Admire the cathedral, which has the widest Gothic nave in the world, and be surprised by the colourful spectacle of the houses along the Onyar River.

Next, you’ll visit a small town called Figueres near the French border. This is one of the three points that make up the so-called Dalí triangle. Dalí was born and raised in this town. Become familiar with the streets and corners that marked his early years and pass some of his favourite places.

Afterwards, you’ll visit the Dalí Theatre-Museum, which is located in Figueres. This museum is considered to be the largest surrealist object in the world, designed by Dalí himself. You’ll be able to plunge into the painter's mind thanks to its comprehensive collection of the strangest artefacts you can probably imagine.

Spectacular
This trip was well worth it. Away from the city you see amazing views of Catalunya. The salt mountain was spectacular, it's definitely worth seeing. My family loved every part of the trip. Our tour guide Mauriusz was very helpful and knowledgeable. They picked us up at our apartment and kindly dropped us off at the restaurant we were wanting to go to in the evening.

Informative and fun
Cardona and the Castle were so beautiful! It was a small group of 4 and our guide, Nuria, was super informative and helpful. She knew a lot of history behind the castle which was very interesting. The salt mines were interesting and they provide their own tour guide for that but it's in Catalan. They provide an englidh audio guide to follow along but Nuria came along and translated extra info and fun facts along the way. The tour ended with a late lunch/snack at a lake which isn't on the itinerary but since our group was small was an easy detour. If you like history and getting to know the small town of Cardona then you will find this tour very interesting.

Cardona and Salt Mine Tour
Overall a great day! We specifically came to Barcelona to book a day trip to Cardona and Salt Mountain. Communication with the tour operator was excellent, they were very quick to respond and professional. Our tour guide was also professional and kind, arriving at the specified time (9am). He was also very accommodating asking about car seats for the kids, advising what parts may not be suitable for those who are less mobile, and helping out when some of the passengers got car sick. Unfortunately the day of our tour there were protests/strikes all over the state. Our driver did his best to go around it all to get to our destinations. We had to miss out on the salt mines and entering Cardona Castle. We were able to walk around the castle, but as i mentioned, we came to Barcelona specifically to visit Cardona, so this was a disappointment. No fault of the tour operator as the protests and strikes were not in their control. I was expecting a walking tour of the town of Cardona or maybe a bit more history of the Castle and town, but we didn’t get that. Instead of the Salt Mines we went to Monserrat, which was beautiful and a lovely replacement for the Salt Mines. We were brought back as close to our hotel as possible (due to the demonstrations), around 3:30 pm, so the tour was no where near 11 hours long (but again, mostly due to missing out on some attractions due to the strike). Overall, I would definitely recommend this tour operator, just keep the lines of communication open as per your expectations.
