What people are saying about Girona

Miguel was our guide for the two hour walking tour of Girona. I have to start by saying Miguel's tour was the highlight of our stay in Barcelona. He was very welcoming when we arrived at the start of the tour and we were surprised to find out we were the only two members of the tour, so it was more like a private walking tour. Miguel started us off on the tour and was a wonderful font of knowledge, He pointed out many little things and talked about their meanings, as well as explained all about the history of Girona. He was even nice enough to point out several locations the Game of Thrones was filmed at. We walked quite a bit, but it was well worth the effort, especially the Girona Wall. Miguel left us with a lasting impression of Girona and memories that we will never forget.

This was the best day, everything was perfect. I thought the volcano was going to be the highlight but there was so much more. The waterfall swimming and the picnic were just fabulous, so were our guides - thank you!

Good way to learn about Girona’s history

Adrianna is a lovely guide, with plenty of stories about the city’s past. We enjoyed our small tour of the old town.
