What people are saying about Girona

Perfect way to tour the lovely town of Girona, see famous Game Of Thrones sites AND get insider stories about the filming experience. Our tour guide, Eli, was super professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend!

I sent an email 2 days before canceling 1 of the 3 reservations and to process a refund for the 1. There was no response. The only way I could see to do it was to cancel the entire reservation. It is a bad feeling -

Ona was our tour guide and she was amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time not only seeing scenes from GOT but learning the history and unique aspects of Girona. Great tour!!

Very informative and enjoyable tour. We would not have learned nearly as much if we had done a self-tour.

Ona was very nice and fun. Made the tour relevant to the scenes in GOT. Great value.
