What people are saying about Girona

We had a wonderful day in Girona, we completely felt in love with the city. Our guide, Roger, was excellent, very knowledgeable and good humored. He provided us with a great insight into this beautiful and historic city. We enjoyed the views from the train and the commodity. Going to Girona by train was the best option. We highly recommend this tour!! .

This was definitely worth the day trip with the family. My two teens and 11 year old equally enjoyed the Dali museum and Girona. Our tour guide, Omid, had wonderful stories to share about the town and region. The Museum was more enjoyable having him explain its history and the work exhibited there. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was very interesting. Seeing film sequences in front of the original locations is fascinating, even if you're not necessarily a GoT freak, you will enjoy this amazing tour that really makes you get into the medieval times.

Our tour with Miquel was FANTASTIC!! He was funny, well-I formed, and most of all incredibly passionate about Dalí and that made us all appreciate the artist to the fullest. If you take this tour, DEFINITELY ask for Miquel!!!

We had a great experience with Luis! He was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was a lot of history I wasn’t aware of and he taught us quite abit! I would definitely recommend him for any tour in future.
