Miquel was a great tour guide - a really interesting and informative tour through the old city and Jewish quarter

Miquel was extremely knowledgeable and shared a wealth of information on the history of the Jewish community. Because my wife's prior 2 hip surgeries, we asked Miquel to minimize the steps and standing time; he was responsive to the steps but there was too much standing time. Suggest guide ask us if have questions.

I had a tour of Gerona today from Miguel and he was extremely informative and very friendly. I would highly recommend him as a private tour guide!

Guide was absolutely not qualified to lead ANY tour, let alone a specific tour of Jewish Girona I would like a refund. His personal "folkloric" politics, lack of detailed knowledge of history & hostility towards tourists, stupid Americans, horrible Spain dominated everything - he was intolerable & full of it! You should eliminate him from your list of guides - he is damaging to your reputation & a toxic representative of his Culture & whatever Jewish community existed in Gerona. Please reapone now

Miquel was a superb guide. He was engaging, very knowledgable and personable. He not only shared with us the history of Girona, but showed us current city life. I would highly recommend this tour!

Miquel was extremely warm and had a wonderful sense of humor. It felt like he tuned into our group immediately and was able to blend the old and the new with a very firm sense of Jewish history. In addition he finished off with a tour of non-Jewish Girona which was just as interesting. As a local he also gave us in just three hours a real understanding of the independence movement of Catalonia as well as where Catalonia stood in not only the Civil War but the period of the republic. Wonderful day !!

We had a wonderful tour with Miquel. We went as a group of 4 with our elderly parents. He was very accommodating to their pace. He is a true local and knew just about everyone in town, as well as the history of the region like only a local could. Miquel was knowledgeable and took us to some great points off the beaten path. He took great care to focus the tour on our interests and took time to answer all of our questions. Most of all, he made it fun. We highly recommend him.
Miquel was an excellent guide and I found the tour to be both interesting and informative. He kindly met me at the train station at the beginning of the tour. I would recommend the tour by Miquel to my family or friends if they were visiting Girona.
Very informative. Miguel's knowledge and great personality helped us enjoy Girona even more.
We did a 3 hour walking tour of Girona, guided by the most interesting, knowledgable and well spoken guide, Miquel. This tour is a highlight of our trip to Europe and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Miquel who is a real gentleman with a great personality. Thank you Miquel. Janice and Roni

We enjoyed our tour, which was primarily of the Jewish quarter, very much. Miguel was knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. My family, including our children ages 20, 18 and 12 also enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about the history of the Jewish people in Spain. It was a worthwhile excision from Barcelona.
Miquel was informative and friendly and knowledgeable both from the sense of having studied and being a local. He even helped us park our van - Girona is hell for parking. His English is good and he even has some Hebrew. Will definitely recommend.
