What people are saying about Plaça de la Independència

Overall rating

(1 reviews)

Thoroughly enjoyed our food tour in Girona. We were a little late in arriving due to an issue with our train (our fault). However Paula had been in contact and was waiting for us. We then had a lovely leisurely walk in the sunshine around the food sellers, and the local market. Food and wine were lovely, and it was great way to see part of the city. We then headed off uphill to view the city from the old basilica area.

The audio tour was good - what would have made the overall experience much better would be a map that moves with you as you walk from place to place. I had to keep swapping between the static map of the sites and Google Maps. Commentary was solid, not exceptional, but worth the Euros.

This tour provided an informative tour full of history and lore. This small group tour was responsive to the interests of the participants and ended with some suggestions for further exploration. Dylan is an excellent guide!

I found it a little confusing to find what I wanted to hear at the time. I also recommend taking an external battery because the app consumes a lot of cell phone battery.

Our guide was very personal and knowledgeable. We had an excellent time. We highly recommend this tour!!!
