Had such a wonderful time on this tour with Mónica! Our group was just myself and my partner and we really enjoyed it. Monica was funny, knowledgeable, and friendly. The tour itself was so fascinating and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting girona. We were taking a day trip from Barcelona - the tour begins in the old town, about 15 minutes walk from the train station. I recommend wearing comfy walking shoes and bringing water as we were getting tired near the end.

Ona was extremely knowledgeable about the subject of the tour and in general. Very enjoyable time in Girona and impressive fortress walls to mark Dolores after the tour. Thanks

This was a larger group than last year, but the Guide was equally knowledgeable and patient with us.

The guide had photos from the series to show what part of the scenes were real and what was CGI.

Ramon was an excellent informant guide. We totally enjoyed our stay in Girona.
