The Journey Man's private tour into exotic Catalunya.


For those without much time from their cruise ship schedule. You will enjoy an outing into the Catalan landscape. This private custom tour is for Dali enthusiasts.

The Empordà region of Catalunya was home to one of the the pre-eminent minds & figures of the surrealist movement of art of 20th century. He's also one of the most recognized artists of his era and to this day he continues be so. Salivador Dalí is that gem of a creative ¨mad man¨ born of this rough-hewn landscape of Cap de Creus. He also remains the pride & joy of Port Lligat & the adjoining town of Cadaqués. Why not become inspired to walk & breathe this magical air of the infamous ¨tramontana¨, while discovering his native land & influences which can be seen everywhere within the terrain of Cap de Creus natural park.

Itinerary

The tour entails visiting the surrounding region that effectively influenced one of the worlds greatest surrealist painters of the 20th century. We will visit his home in Port Lligat near Cadaqués and the Natural Park of Cap de Creus. . . .
Nowadays it seems, if you don't document your travels well & put it online immediately, it's as if it never really happened at all. My tours are for people who like to travel light & don't want to worry about anything at all but being there in the moment. When you're worrying about taking a good photograph or finding your way around unknown terrain, you're really not ¨in the moment¨ to truly enjoy it. I take care of those worries for you. Travel photography remains amongst the most viewed content on social media, while on holiday, half of us post snaps to social media sites while traveling or when we get back home. As your photographer/tour guide, I will show you the best places, sharing important highlights and tips while discreetly taking your holiday photos of you.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Suggested by Guide: Cruise ship port of Barcelona or your Hotel.

Duration: 8 hours

We will be traveling approximately a total of two hours each way. If you are prone to car motion sickness please advise me in advance so, that I can accommodate you. Normally sitting in the front seat helps.

In case of inclement weather we will adjust our tour accordingly. I will not cancel your tour, we will be sure to make the most of the day. So, be sure to bring appropriate clothing and comfortable footwear for hiking.

Transportation

Private Transportation hired for our needs only.

What’s Included

  • Guiding Services
  • Private Transportation

Other: A chauffeured mini-van will be hired in order to be able to travel in comfort to Port Lligat/ Cadaqués and Cap de Creus Region.

Parking and Entrance to Paratge de Tudela is covered as part of the tour.

Not only do I provide a private tour. I also provide professional quality digital photographs of your tour as a uniquely and distinctive addition to your unique touring experience. Delivering via Wetransfer or Dropbox 20-30 high quality images for you to keep. If more are requested, this can be negotiate later.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

60 Euros - Besides one never quite knows what extra bits one might want to purchase at the last minute. Of course most every shop or museum will except debit or credit cards, so cash is not really necessary. However, 60 Euros is only a suggestion in case you might desire things that are not covered within the tour package.

What’s Extra

  • Personal Expenses
  • Souvenirs
  • Public Transportation Tickets
  • Food, Drinks, Snacks

Other: Admission to the Dali home in Port Lligat/ Cadaqués will not be included due to the high volume and limited spaces available to enter the home during high season. Pending availability of tickets during our tour this may not fit within the rest of the agenda of the tour.

However saying that, this may or may not be feasible but I will try to do everything in order to help you obtain tickets to the home. However, as I mentioned it is not always possible if bookings are not made well in advance.

Lunch is not included in the tour due to the locations we will be visiting. We will have to take our chances in what might be available in Port Lligat/ Cadaqués, Cap de Creus region, that is not to say that we will not stop for lunch. I will make prevision to book a place to eat once we have established our schedule or booking. What it means is that there may not be a prix-fixe available and the cost of lunch might well be over 20 Euros per person.

Restrictions

Not a licensed guide. No vocally aided tours within historical monuments or museums. We can certainly quietly discuss within the confines of most museums and monuments. In general I work with professional chauffeurs and licensed taxi's drivers.
