Discover Catalonia with official guides
Local experienced guides

Cooltourspain is led by Javier Garcia, a professional freelancer who is passionate about travelling. He, and the rest of the team, will show you Blanes from a local's perspective.

Blanes to Tossa de Mar by boat

There exist two ways of enjoying the Costa Brava experiences. One is walking/vehicle, the other is by boat. We'd recommend you to join this suggested 1 hour 30 minutes sail. Incredible views!

Local markets & gastronomy

Whether you visit Blanes during the weekdays or over the weekend, you'll enjoy the traditional markets that local producers set at the city center. Totally different from what Barcelona offers its visitors.

Reviews of Javier's Blanes city tour

We had a very insightful walk with Javier. He showed us his city in a different way, learning about its history through the centuries, and we even got to see the fish market. Luckily, we hired the service for the time when fishing boats arrived to the port and saw all the process.

As I liked the tour around Barcelona's street art, I decided listening to Javier's recommendations and visit Blanes. The minivan was out of my budget, but you can still visit the Costa Brava using a public train. The journey through the coast was totally enjoyable, and I even got to see Tossa de Mar.

My family and I were very lucky with the weather conditions. We joined Javier on a morning walk + hike to the top of the castle. Couldn't have asked for better panoramic views. Thank you also for taking us off trail, to visit that little viewpoint.
