Booked the tour last minute, on a whim and it turned out to be a lovely day! I was travelling solo so it was nice to meet some new people and the guides explained everything very well with precise navigation and instructions. Would have loved an additional half hour in Girona but I understand it was a tight schedule. Overall would definitely recommend :)

Ona from Gironaexperience was a great guide. She was engaging, and had great stories and details about the town history and architecture. The oled town was incredibly crowded due to the Flowers Festival. She deftly moved us around to the key spots. Her recommendations for shopping and restaurants were great. I highly recommend Ona.

Christina and Carlos from Catalunya Bus Turistic were very entertaining and well informed. I felt that we were taken care of. Their guidance and hospitality made visit to Girona and Figueres (Dali Museum)

Relatively relaxed walk around. Good information shared. Lots of history about the place and what makes it so rich in history.

Girona is magical and Dali's eccentric artwork will leave you spellbound
