Full description

Depart from the meeting point in central Barcelona on an air-conditioned coach. Sit back and relax on a 1.5-hour journey to Girona, one of the most beautiful cities of Catalonia. Upon arrival, follow your guide to the city center for a 2-hour walking tour. 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. 

You may also recognize the picturesque bridge and houses along the Onyar River constructed by the Eiffel company in the 19th century. See some of the locations where the HBO hit series “Game of Thrones” filmed many scenes of its 6th season. Admire the exterior of the magnificent cathedral destroyed on the TV series. Walk along part of the city’s medieval walls and marvel at the amazing views of the old town. Originally built in the 14th century, the old walls were destroyed to expand the city in the 19th century. Today, due its reconstruction, it is possible to walk along them once again.

Take advantage of some free time after the guided tour to visit the cathedral on your own or grab a quick bite to eat before returning to Barcelona.

Our guide Hugo was a native Spaniard with a wealth of information about the city of Girona. We chose this tour since it was a half day and we could still do other things in the afternoon. The bus was clean and newer, very comfortable. Excellent trip for those wanting to know more about a nearby town outside of Barcelona and also for fans of Game of Thrones. There were several recognizable filming locations pointed out on the tour. Thank you for a pleasant morning!

Overall is a great day trip and Girona is well worth the visit if you enjoy medieval time period and architecture. Our guide spoke English but rather haltingly which made his delivery less than compelling and a little difficult to understand. He seemed to just be going thru the motions where a great travel guide pulls you into the history and story of the place.

Una was a great tour guide and Girona was a cute, little town to visit. I wish we had just a little more solo time away from the group. I was able to grab a bite to eat but barely had enough time to shop at the local shops afterward.
