Luis was an excellent tour guide. This day trip was worth every penny- one of our favorite things we did in our week long trip to Barcelona! Luis was friendly and super knowledgable. Everyone in our group agreed we learned so much from him and had a wonderful time. We had actually done a different tour with another company a few days prior that we were disappointed with, so we had even more appreciation for how amazing this day trip was. And as a bonus- we are huge Game of Thrones fans and Luis showed us all the filming spots in Girona (and took some great pictures for us)! Thank you so much Luis!

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.

We enjoyed the entire trip, right from being picked at the hotel to the lively banter with pour guide Gaspa. He kept us entertained with the story of Dali. He was informative yet open to our perspective of the museum.

Vincente was terrific. Informative, flexible and entertaining. We learned so much about Dali, his art and his vision for the museum.

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