Fabrizio was a wonderful guide! He was very knowledgeable about all of the places he took us too. Very personable . The tour was amazing and great for the price! The places were incredible! I met some amazing people on the tour and met some great locals. I would recommend this tour and would definitely buy it again!

Fabrizio was knowledgeable, friendly and an all-around great guide. He navigated weather-driven issues with expertise and ensured that we got the experience we were hoping for. Girona, Peratallada, and Calella were each unique and each more magical than the next. Highly recommend this excursion!

The day trip to Girona and Costa Brava exceeded our expectations. Giulio was a fantastic guide! Very knowledgeable of the historical and cultural aspects of the region. All the sites were magnificent and the drive itself is scenic and reminiscent of Tuscany. Higly recommended!

We had Monica as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and patient. We were a group of 4 people. It was a rainy day during our tour so best to check the weather before you head there. Also we got to go inside the church for free as it was a Sunday.

Brilliant! I’m a fan! Our guide Miguel was wonderful, funny and gave us plenty of time.
