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 :)

Gabi and Miguel took us on a whirlwind adventure in King's Landing and Braavos from Game of thrones Season 6. Girona is such a beautiful town and we have fallen in love with yet one more place in Spain. Thank you both!
