What people are saying about Girona

One of the best experience of my life. André was so fantastic so personable made it about my experience. What an experience it was. André is so passionate and knowledgeable. I cannot explain how amazing booking this tour was. I wish I would of booked this my first day in Barcelona. You truly “DO NOT” need any other company. All you need is André !! He made me fall in love with España. If I could give more stars I would. I felt safe in his hands at all times. André made me want to come back to Barcelona and explore more. Best tour, best tour guide, best experience.

Me gustó mucho la logística de este tour, yo estaba indecisa en tomar este u otro en el que iban a Puból, al castillo de Gala, pero al final del día, con este tour, terminas más que satisfecho de ver y escuchar obra y vida de Dalí en el museo. La corta distancia de los pueblos de Costa brava, te permite disfrutar un par de horas más de estos lugares tan hermosos. Atención: es mucho caminar por lo que sugiero que si eres o llevas adultos mayores, elijas uno de los destinas para caminar y otro para descansar.

Little time to visit the Costa Brava and the museum. They should take other small cities out of the tour and give one more hour for the return. Silvia the guide was very unsympathetic, she got angry at every question and seemed not to want to be there

Very thorough tour and lessons of culture and history

Interesting itinerary and excellent guide in alvar
