Depart Barcelona and set out for Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí and home to the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre. Explore where he was born on Monturiol Street and also visit the famous museum. Step inside the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and find a museum like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work, and for this reason he wanted no catalogues and refused to have his works placed in chronological or subject order. Inside is a world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience. The tour itinerary varies:

From September 1 - June 30 (Winter):

Leave Figueres and head to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its white washed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay, this is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya. This is the perfect place for lunch. In the afternoon we will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat, the place where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him and where he built his house. Finally, we will move on to Cap de Creus, the most easterly point of mainland Spain and one of the most starkly beautiful coastal landscapes in the whole of the country.

From July 1 – August 31 (Summer):

Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.

Please note: Dali House will be closed from the 1st of January to the 4th of January and from the 11th of January until the 11th of February. It is still possible to see the house from the outside.

Our Salvador Dali tour was terrific! The combination of the Dali Museum in Figueres and the Dali House in Port Ligat gave us a lot of information about Dali. Our guide Anna was so knowledgeable. She made the paintings of Dali at the museum come alive. She also gave us a narrative on Dali’s life during our ride. I really enjoyed the small group tour. We had 7 people plus Anna, the driver and tour guide, in a nine passenger van. Although the trip took 10-11 hours, we stopped for coffee in Figueres and lunch in Pt. Ligat... both paid for by you. If you want to learn about Salvador Dali this is the tour to take.

Jordi made today's trip to Dali museum and Cadaques was educational, entertaining and spectacular. Cadaques is a magical seaside town

We had great time at Dali Theater Museum in Figueres and Dali Home museum in Cadaques which are about 100 miles northeast of Barcelona. It is much easier and convenient to join a tour to visit these two museums than by yourself because of distance and museum tickets. Also, our tour guide Camilo (he told us to call him Cam) is excellent, speaking English with little accent as well as vast knowledge of Dali and his life.

From start to end our tour was absolutely well conducted. From the driver, courteous and skilled to our guide Arnau who did a phenomenal job. He is very knowledgeable about Dali and has humor which made the trip not only interesting but also fun. Everything went smoothly and the museum is exquisite. We had a previous reservation with someone highly recommended by Airbnb who canceled the tour 12 hours before the start because he didn’t reach the desired number of guests, so it was a strike of luck to me to find an alternative in such a short period of time. I can’t say enough things about Arnau and our driver. And the tour itself is one not to be missed. Cadaques is marvelous!

Very good tour: well-organized, helpful commentary by guide Rodrigo. Sufficient time to visit on our own after guided visits.

Our guide Cam from Explore Catalonia was informative and knowledgeable about Dali , hisl life and his art- just an amazing tour

It was so well worth taking this day trip from Barcelona to visit the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres (about an hour and a half from Barcelona) - we had ample time to explore the museum and marvel at Dali's unusual creative mind - even the jewellery he designed! Our guide was informative. We then drove through the scenic mountain road to the seaside town of Cadaques - we had time for a lazy lunch overlooking the bay; then on to Dali's cottage. So glad I chose this trip!

Even if you don't care for Dali's art, our excellent tour guide from Explore Catalunya, Camilo, brought this mad genius to life in his narrative on the way to Figures in the most entertaining and informative way which really imparted a great understanding of this controversial artist. The museum itself is a work of art. The drive to Cadaques on the Costa Brava through the mountains is beautiful. The highlight of this day for me was the optional visit to Dali's house in Port Lliget, which is fascinating. To have seen all of this without Camilo's narrative would have not been the same. An excellent day. While the trip doesn't involve as much walking as other day tours, there are a lot of steps to climb, both at the museum and at the house in Port Lliget, as well as up to 2+ hours on the mini-bus without bathroom stops, which may present a problem for some.

Our tour guide Camillo was great. His tour narration provided the background info we needed to really appreciate the Dali experience. He also provided a work around when we ran into a traffic accident.

... and more. A must see. Also Dali’s House is very interesting. Our Guide, Geordi was really great. Very knowledgeable. Pity I fell asleep on the minibus ride to Figueres and missed most of his very interesting commentary.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Dali theater museum and home. Camillo was a fantastic guide; humorous and knowledgeable about all things Dali. Would highly recommend this tour!

The tour leader Jordy made this trip fantastic. He delivered all the information we needed to enjoy and appreciate everything we saw. The stops were fantastic, don't miss the jewelry designed by Dali! It's beyond amazing. The museum astounded me, I wasn't expecting anything that could delight me the way it did. The personal stories Jordy told us added richness and understanding to everything we saw. The house of Dali exceeded my expectations. Very worthwhile journey!

Without having a car we couldn’t have seen all the sites on our own and besides Stephen’s great sense of humor kept us entertained. We didn’t feel rushed except we would have liked another 30-45 minutes in Cadaques.

Great History of Dali for all art lovers. Our guide was so knowledgeable and the trip was well planned and very comfortable. Have always loved VIATOR tours, and this was great for the whole family.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Laura, provided us with history and background, which helped with interpretation of the Dali artwork. Laura also shared her insights about alternative day trip possibilities. I followed up on one of her recommendations and it was one of the highlights of my time in Barcelona. Our tour brought us to the Castle of Púbol, which was very peaceful and beautiful. We ended our day at the picturesque seaside town of Georges.

Fabulous tour guide, Nickolas. Plenty of time to tour the Dali museum and to have lunch in Figures. Pubol, where Gala's house was a wonderful part of the tour. We also had nice bit of time at the seaside for beach time or just sitting with drinks and tapas by the Mediterranean sea. Always book the small group tours much mor enjoyable and more personalized.

Camilo is a great guide for this tour. I recommend this for those interested in art and in Dalí. Thanks

This trip had it all for the serious or casual Dalí fan and for anyone who might be looking for a scenic ride through the Pyrenees and to the beautiful Costa Brava. Stephen was our guide and did a very fine job with the tour. Highly recommend the trip.

The drive to Figueres was longer than we expected. Ana our guide was knowledgeable and interesting and entertaining. The museum was extremely busy with tourists being Good Friday but the museum is something to see. Don’t miss visiting the Dalis jewelry museum attached to the main building. Cadaques was a lovely seaside town we walked around and had lunch as well.

Our guide, Enrique, was absolutely fantastic! He was so enthusiastic about everything and made the trip totally worth it! The Dalí museum was amazing and having Enriques information on the way was really what made the experience surreal. Book this, you don't be dissadisappo!

Excellent tour, well thought-though itinerary, very interesting and informative. Our guide Stephen was excellent - very knowledgable and easy-going. Wish we could have more time in the Dali's Theatre-Museum and especially in his Jewellery museum - stunning masterpieces! A bit long drive back to Barcelona (took 3 hours) but it was raining heavily and we got diverted because of the floods. Overall it was a great experience - we might consider taking this tour in summer to visit Pubol Castle as well.

I am a fan of Dali and of Barcelona. I have been to Barcelona many times but never did the Dali triad (museum in Figueres, visit to Cadaques, and then his house). I am glad I did, as it's a lot of ground to cover. Nicolas, our guide, shared the story of Dali's life on the long ride to the museum. Having the background offered a lot of context and I got a lot more out of the museum and his house than I would have on my own. Thank you, Nicolas.
