Miguel was an excellent guide. We made 3 stops & each was superb. I could’ve made it to Girona on the train, but I never would’ve made it to Pals & Costa Brava on my own. Seeing the Mediterranean and that lovely setting was the highlight of the day!

It was helpful to find a pick up spot close to the place we were staying at, and to plan accordingly for time allowing a short walk to the pick up location.

the places we were taken to were beautiful and full of history. our guide shared stories, anecdotes, and was very knowledgeable about every place.

Gaspar was the best tour guide we could have asked for. Took us to so many beautiful spots and the BEST lunch in Girona

Amazing tour with lots to see! Matt was very knowledgeable and made the trip fun!
