The Dali Museum was very interesting, especially enhanced by our guide Jessie who has an art history degree. She was very knowledgeable and engaging. Girona was also an amazing place to visit and again Jessie was very knowledgeable about the history and had many stories. The train was an excellent way to travel there. Over all a first rate tour experience. We would highly recommend!!

Excellent tour! Pick up from hotel was around 7.25 am to the Barcelona Sants station, where we caught the high speed train to Figueres. The train takes 55 minutes to reach Figueres. Our guide Jessica was very good, she explained in detail regarding some of Dali's paintings ( the mannerisms, ideas, insights, etc.). Without her explanation, l doubt I would have understood much of what I saw. Dali, is unique , and so is his brand of art, Surrealism.... The museum is extremely crowded, with loads of tourists, and we were there not soon after it opened. We also had time to look around on our own, and don't miss the jewellery exhibition either. Dali is truly innovative. We were back in Barcelona Sants station around 1.35 -1.40 PM. ( We did not take the Girona option). Overall , highly recommended ! Tour was very well organized, our guide was great, and everything went according to plan.

Best tour from Barcelona

We loved seeing the Dali Museum with a knowledgeable guide who spoke English perfectly. Every part of the tour was handled perfectly---taxi to the train station, high speed rail, guide to pick us up, tour, train ride to Girona (don't miss it), tour, and train ride back to Barcelona. One of the best tours we've ever had. Jessica Casanovas was an excellent guide.

Dali Museum Day Trip

Booked prior to Barcelona visit. Transfer from hotel to Barcelona Sant Station was on time, and hotel reception had already been informed of departure time. My wife and I were picked up in good time and told exactly where to wait for our guide while we waited for the other party to arrive. The train was a high-speed TGV which was comfortable and very fast and arrived in Figueres exactly on time- 55 mins- and the previous stop is where tour guide, Jessica, met us. We were transported by minibus to the museum (10 minutes max) where Jessica took us around and explained in great detail Dali's fantastic museum and a lot about his quirky, complicated personality. Jessica was obviously very passionate about this man's life and work, and was a great bonus for people like ourselves who know a little about him and his work. Would always recommend an English- speaking guide with such depth of knowledge. We also had another hour or so to tour the museum on our own including the jewellery display rooms which were equally impressive. Everything ran like clockwork and we were back in Barcelona by 1:40PM, still had time for lunch and the rest of the day to tour other sites. Would highly recommend this visit.

Excellent Dali Museum and Historic Girona Tour with Jessica!

We had an outstanding tour. The BGB staff was very well oraganized and professional, especially Jessica, the guide for our tour. She ensured that our tour ran smoothly, minimized wait times, and avoided crowded portions of the museum when possible. She adeptly managed the tour to see all the major works and provided great insights on the artist and his works. In Girona we had an excellent historical walking tour that also included visits to recent Game of Thrones filming locations and scenic vistas. Overall, an excellent day thanks to Jessica!!

Dali was the highlight of our trip

Our guide, Anna was absolutely amazing and is an encyclopedia on " Salvador Dali". I'm not a museum person normally but Dali's work was so unique and innovative, I enjoyed every moment. . We did not have that in advance & there was definitely some confusion but it all turned out fine.Without Anna, it would have been enjoyable, but with her knowledge on his work, his personality and personal history, it was a tremendous experience! Hint: Be sure you have the itinerary in advance & know where you're being picked up, the time, the train station, etc

We could not have been more happy with the tour we did to the Dali Museum. From the beginning, where we were picked up by a cab at our apartment, to being drooped off, and met at the train station by our guide, we were totally taken care of. The high speed train was great, and when we arrived we were met by our tour guide, Jessica. She was amazing. She led us through an incredible guided tour of the Dali Musuem/Theatre, Her level of knowledge and enthusiasm were off the charts, it was a true pleasure to under her tutelage. I cannot say enough how much we loved her presentation.
