Full description

After meeting in central Barcelona, sit back and relax on the journey to one of the most beautiful cities of Catalonia. After a 1-and-a-half-hour drive on the highway, you will arrive at Girona. Join your guide on a walking tour of the city. Discover the Old Town and learn about some of the myths and legends related to the city. Stroll down la Rambla, see some of the most important plazas of Girona, and explore its winding alleys.

See some of the locations where the HBO hit series Game of Thrones filmed many scenes of its sixth season. Admire the exterior of the magnificent Cathedral. Walk along a part of the city's medieval walls and marvel at the amazing views of the old town. Take advantage of the free time you will be given after the guided tour and visit the Cathedral on your own or grab a quick bite to eat. After a short drive on the highway, board the cogwheel train up the mountain of Montserrat and enjoy the amazing views. Admire the peculiar morphology, which comes from the Catalan words Mont (mountain) and Serrat (serrated). Next, follow your local guide through the Monastery of Montserrat site and learn about its history and architectural styles. Fall in love with the Gothic and Renaissance details of the basilica and sanctuary.

Learn about the legend of the miraculous apparition of the Madonna and Child in the cave of Santa Cova. To this day, their woodcarving is kept in the Church of the monastery, which you will be able to visit. The figure is popularly known as La Moreneta (The Black Madonna) as a result of a varnish reaction. Besides the main area, there are a great number of small churches and trails you can follow. You will be given free time to taste the finest liquors, shop for locally produced treats or visit the audio-visual exhibition once the guided tour finishes.

Nice day. But staff in office failed to inform us that we had to exchange ticket received for a new voucher, nor did they give us a headset. So after lining up for the tour we had to leave and go back to the office for the right ticket. Nearly missed the tour and got a less desirable seat.

The first have of the tour was more about Girona than Game of Thrones and the tour guide didn't know much about the show. The tour guide for the second half (there were 2 busses and guides which was not stated in the description...) was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and gave us little gifts at the end of the tour. Would definitely recommend for all, not just Game of Thrones enthusiasts since they barely spoke about the show.

Girona imperdible, muy bien organizado. Montserrat me pareció raro que nos den tiempo libre primero y el tour guiado después. Estaría bueno que sea al revés, así primero se tiene un pantallazo general del lugar y luego en el tiempo libre se puede seguir descubriendo.
