I sent an email 2 days before canceling 1 of the 3 reservations and to process a refund for the 1. There was no response. The only way I could see to do it was to cancel the entire reservation. It is a bad feeling -

Our guide, Ramon, was very knowledgeable and made our tour fun and interesting. He was flexible and helpful with everyone’s needs. Would definitely recommend!

Much more depth about Girona than otherwise would have gotten, esp about the history and legends. Guide Ramon excellent, very knowledgeable and good humored.

Very informative and enjoyable tour. We would not have learned nearly as much if we had done a self-tour.

It was a really nice tour. Appreciated the personal touch with local recommendations.
