Discover this fascinating city with your local guide!


"Girona enamora" which means "Girona makes you fall in love" is what people say after visiting this iconic and emblematic city. It has more than 2. 000 years of history and it is located at only 65 miles north from Barcelona.

In this beautiful tour I will make you discover why Girona's Old Town stands out for so many reasons such as: The colorful houses hanging over the Onyar river which is definitely the most photographed spot!, the history beyond it's churches and Monastery, the Arab Baths from the XIII, the widest Gothic Cathedral in the world and the second of all styles after Saint Peter in Rome, one of the most well preserved Jewish quarters in Europe, or its emblematic medieval walls. . .

Did you know that Girona. . is also well known for its local gastronomy? and happens to house "Celler de Can Roca" the 2nd best restaurant in the world today. That the crew of Game of Thrones shoot some scenes of the 6th season and it is considered to be Paradise for pro and amateur cyclists?. . .

Are you ready?

A Recent Review of this tour

My family really enjoyed our time with Laura on our tour of Girona. We had 3 adults, one teenager, and one 8 year old, but I felt like Laura was able to connect with all of us and give us each an experience that we'll all remember. Of course, she was very knowledgeable about Girona's and Catalonia's history, but she also shared some "Game of Thrones" info with the fan of our group, connected with my 8 year old daughter, and left the rest of us wanting for nothing. Much better than I expected!
