Hi, I booked this tour in Castilian last minute. I was pleasantly surprised by the preparation of the girl who accompanied us on the journey. This girl is called "Giorgia", a tour guide from Tarragona who also knows the Italian language. Therefore, I was able to ask you for information in my language. The tour was spectacular, told with precision and sympathy. Caterina and Francesca

Simple instructions, short and informative information about the exciting sights of Tarragona! Highly recommended for families with their young people, with friends and older people who just want to spend a few nice hours together. It's also super cool that the game can be stopped at any time by taking a break, just great! It was very interesting and fun, thank you!

The tour is very good, because it is the most important thing to see and I have to thank our guide Georgina for the passion with which she explains things and her knowledge, it is a pleasure to listen to her and see that she explains things with great passion and great pleasure. ten for her

What a great way to discover a city! I ended up learning a lot about Tarragona. There were a lot of nice hidden gems I would probably have missed, if I had walked around the city on my own. The quizzes were also very exciting and fun. I can't wait to play it on my next trip!

An excepcional guide, a conocimiento and a facilidad de explicación increíbles. Dos horas que han pasado flying, with a cantidad de información alucinante. Cuando volveré a Tarragona no descarto volver a hacer el mismo tour.
