Get away from the crowds and travel to an unspoilt little cove at the beginning of the Costa Brava coast, explore the nearby Marimurtra Medierranaean botanical gardens with its stunning panoramic clifftop views, and travel to a medieval town for some souvenir shopping when you book this exciting small group tour in Barcelona. This guided tour is perfect for culture connoisseurs and outdoor enthusiasts alike! Your tour includes an expert guide who will lead your small group tour, and a delicious three course lunch of traditional Mediterranean cuisine at a family run restaurant. There is plenty of free time to explore the narrow streets of the fortified coastal town of Tossa de Mar, the botanical gardens, and winding coastal pathways, making this excursion a convenient way to immerse yourself into the local culture.

Start your journey with a scenic one hour drive from the busy streets of Barcerlona. You'll head north along a coastal highway to one of Europe's most beautiful coasts, the Costa Brava. Here, you'll make your way to the gateway of the Costa Brava, Blanes, where you'll find a hidden cove to relax on the beach or take a secluded swim in the pristine waters during this two hour stop. This hidden cove is one of the few remaining beaches that escaped development and is a local favorite for a beach away from the crowds.

If you're more into exploring exotic plants and strolling through gorgeous gardens, then you'll love the option of enjoying a visit at the Marimurtra Botanical Gardens during your two hour stop in Blanes. During your time at this cliff side botanical garden, you'll catch panoramic views of the coast and the Mediterranean Sea as the waves crash against Costa Brava's coastline, so get your camera ready to take postcard worthy photos! If you're strategic with your trip, you may even have enough time to split between the Blanes' hidden beach cove and the Marimurtra Botanical Gardens. The highlight of the morning part of the tour is a tasty three course lunch at a family run restaurant. Feast on traditional Spanish and Catalan dishes, and indulge in a glass of Sangria.

Next, enjoy a brief drive to Costa Brava's only remaining well preserved fortified town of Tossa de Mar. Here, you'll get a chance to stroll along its cobblestoned streets and make your way to explore its historic lighthouse for a couple of hours. This medieval village is a perfect blend of ancient history, beautiful beaches, and traditional shops and bars. You'll have two hours to explore the winding streets and treat yourself to some souvenir shopping, or relax in a local cafe and enjoy some people watching.

From relaxing on a secluded beach to exploring a medieval town on foot, there's much to see and do on this scenic, small group tour. Book this excursion today to go back into time, catch panoramic views, and make lifelong memories in Barcelona.
