Great tour - excellent guide.
Excellent tour. The guide did a great job. Would definitely recommend. Walking tour of Gerona was very well done as was the shorter visit to Pals. The beach visit was well timed - we had time for lunch and for swimming afterwards.

Private Girona And Costa Brava Tour - Day Trip From Barcelona - With Pickup
Our guide, Adrian was friendly, engaging and professional. The day we spent with him was delightful. Girona is a very interesting and historic town of many periods, and Adrian explained history and myth. The Costa Brava portion of the trip is beautiful and we had a delicious fresh fish meal at a spot Adrian reserved for us.

From Barcelona: Private Girona and Figueres with Dali Museum Tour
My sister and I booked a private tour and it was a fabulous excursion to the Dali Museum (where Miguel knew all nooks and crannies) and medieval Girona (where parts of Game of Thrones was filmed). He also took us to a tapas restaurant on a beautiful plaza where the food was even better than Barcelona. Miguel was flexible and courteous and a joy to be around.

Girona Game of Thrones City
A very good quick tour of Girona and the places of where some scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed at. Had an hour and a half of free time to roam around the city and recreate the scenes from GoT which was great 👍🏽 Would highly recommend to try out “Jaime Lannister’s Golden Hand” ice cream from Rocambolesc Gelateria.
