Paulina's infectious energy took a long bus ride into a trip with stories, pop quizzes and a history tour. She easily switched to fluently explain in Spanish and English and was funny and charming. She used just the right amount of knowledge sharing and free time and the three cities were each special gems. The tour helped me get a better sense for the region (medieval still standing, famous artists and the politics and beaches). I am glad I didn't sleep on the Dali museum, somehow I missed that I should get tickets at 1 but Paulina suggestions for 1245 when we got on the bus was perfect (do out this in the website though because not everyone gets a digital sim while traveling). This tour was for everyone, we had all ages kid to older and solo to family with people from Singapore, Columbia, Equador, India, Korea, US, Mexico, Canada, Europe. She made sure to share when the tour would get more physically challenging a provide alternatives, always with a clea meeting point. Loved it!

Splendid tour with an incredibly knowledgeable and personable guide, Louis. The museum itself is pure Dalí and Louis took the time to educate us and show us such details in paintings that many of our group never knew existed! The medieval city of Girona was interesting to learn about and see. Again, our guide provided first rate history and information. We had plenty of time to explore on our own as well. The tour was structured so that food and fluid breaks were well placed. The “minivan” we traveled in was cozy but comfortable. All in all, maximum stars!

Toni was an incredible guide. Everything was amazing except the passenger in the middle seat in the front front of the car was an uncomfortable place to sit. Toni made it such a great tour, definitely one of the best guides around! I took a lot of tours & he was the best!

Sergei is an extraordinary guide. He is like a walking encyclopedia sharing his knowledge about Barcelona with the group. I highly recommend this if you are able.

Must do. Girona and Costa Brava are amazing, and our guide Manu is simply the best.
