A Recent Review of this tour

Julie has now moved to number one from my list of 14 guides I've used from ToursByLocals. First of all you can tell she loves her job. Her knowledge of Dali and of what to make sure we saw was perfect. She made sure that we also experienced the history of the beautiful town of Girona. Our day never felt rushed yet we felt like we truly experienced Dali and Old Town Girona. Julie was fun and made sure the three of us had an excellent experience.
