Know More about this tour

Hop inside your air-conditioned minivan in central Barcelona, and journey along the coast to begin your exciting small-group day trip. As you travel, hear all about the Costa Brava, where sea-sculpted cliffs and coves form one of Europe's prettiest coastlines. Admire the Mediterranean views and after roughly an hour, arrive at Blanes, the bustling seaside resort known as the Costa Brava's southern gateway.

- On this Costa Brava Tour From Barcelona Including Lunch, leave the main tourist trail and drive to an idyllic cove favored by locals. Opt to relax here as your morning arrival means the sands and the sea will be wonderfully uncrowded. Stay on the minivan and continue to the nearby Marimurtra Botanical Gardens. You will have time to enjoy both activities if you want to.

- The last quick stop before lunch is the old ruined castle high above Blanes. This favorite spot for newlyweds offers an amazing view of the city.

- After two hours at the beach or gardens, join up again for lunch at a locally acclaimed family-run restaurant. At the restaurant, sit down to a 3-course feast of local specialties accompanied by a glass of sangria, wine, beer, soda, or mineral water. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)

- Back aboard your minivan, continue to Tossa del Mar, home to the Costa Brava's last remaining fortified town. Enjoy the afternoon exploring the cobbled old town and enjoying magnificent views up and down the coast.

- After losing yourself in the meandering alleyways and tiny streets, you will come out through the old medieval wall into cozy streets lined with boutiques and traditional shops. There's plenty of time for some souvenir shopping or enjoying a drink as the day comes to an end.

If you still need some more beach time, you have one last chance in Tossa for a swim or even a kayak around the cliffs. Your tour ends with a drop-off at the original pickup point in Barcelona.

    Rod (Rodrigo) was as amazing as the views! His knowledge of the area, history and the food is on point. This is a fantastic excursion to see great views of castles and coastal cliffs. It mixes some sand time if need be, and some authentic cuisine. 5 stars

    Sergio was wonderful in explaining the coast as we drove away from Barcelona. Our lunch was very tasty as was the wandering in Tessa de Mar. We brave Canadians took a dip in the sea at Costa de Brava. It was refreshing !!! Loved the whole day .

    The initial pick up and getting to van was terrific. There weren’t organized stops for rest room on this trip so one needs to speak up. The driving and destinations were beautiful however it wasn’t very cultural and my particular group not so interesting. Therefore the ride back with constant chatter after a long day wasn’t necessary. The idea of this tour is great. Wish I were with a friend this time to buffer the other stuff. The food at the restaurant was mediocre. And people didn’t seem happy working there. I would have preferred an organized meal at Tossa Del Mar however not a big deal. My pictures are amazing and if you have someone special to go with this is a very nice excursion to get away from the hustle of Barcelona. The botanical garden was beautiful with amazing coastal views.

    Small trip to costa brava the tour guide was awesome. The beaches and views were amazing!!!! Bring towels if you plan to go in the sea. The dessert and appetizers were good. The food was ok - steak no bueno. That is only reason I gave 4 star

    Our tour guide Carlos was absolutely amazing! Energetic and knowledgeable. The beach and views were breathtaking. Botanical gardens exceeded our expectations. The lunch was the most memorable and big portions and delicious. Tossa de Mar also beautiful. Do not hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed!

    The Costa Brava tour was excellent! We experienced unique and special beaches, walked through a beautiful botanical garden with amazing views of the Mediterranean, and enjoyed a fantastic lunch. What a blessing! I will remember this day in Spain forever!

    Had a great experience with Xavier on this tour. The tour is designed well, did not feel rushed and the logistics was very smooth. The places are definitely worth visiting, the beaches are very nice so be beach ready. If not into beaches there's an alternative at each location and a good one. The lunch as it says is traditional and very good. Have a light breakfast so you can go through the 4 courses (light salad, starter, main course and desert).

    We were really excited for this trip, but due to a mistake at the tour office, we were placed on the wrong tour. Unfortunately it was too late once we realized, and our tour guide apologized and contacted the tour agency. We were refunded the price difference but were still disappointed. My advice would be to double check with your tour guide before your tour.
