Miguel was a knowledgable, courteous, accommodating tour guide along with his brilliant personality. His use of visual aids to accompany the tour, really made the tour stand out. I recommend his tour highly, it would be very difficult to find the sites without help.

Miquel was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable and passionate about Girona. We are a family of 6 and he was able to engage all of us! We were visiting Girona for it's history and beauty, but also for the Game of Thrones tour. Miquel offered fascinating historical facts as well as extensive knowledge of GOT. We explored 2 different worlds with the BEST Girona guide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The tour was mostly about game of thrones, so if you are a big fan, this is the tour for you. We were a little disappointed he didn't explained much about the Cathedral and basically suggested it was not worth a visit. We later learned that cathedral is beautiful inside and has the second largest "nave" in the world, after St. Peter in the Vatican. Unfortunately we were in Girona only for one day and left without chance to visit the cathedral

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am Sorry that you didn't enjoy the tour. I thought that you ask me to focus more in the got locations. I explain you all the different parts from the cathedral, the Roman part, the Romanesque and the two different Gothic periods, even the legends of the cathedral. All the Catalan churches were destroyed before the civil war so there is not much decoration inside this is why we focus the tour outside. I think tht do the tour after you drove five hours from Pyrenees and without lunch didn't help much

Miquel was warm and welcoming throughout the whole tour! He was knowledgeable about Girona and its history and we all very much enjoyed the trip and the weather we experienced mid-November! Miquel gave us some good recommendations on where to eat when we return to Girona next year too!

MiQuel was fabulous! Great conversationalist, he did not overwhelm us (our kids 14 & 15) with specific facts/details however was able to provide in-depth information if he felt we were interested or we asked. Speed of tour was perfect! We felt as if we were walking around the city with a friend who was sharing their knowledge, not a guide who had rehearsed a script. We highly recommend Miquel.

Miquel was the best guide we had in a 2 week trip. He knows Girona from a historic cal and shopping perspectives. He covered the places where Game of Thrones was filmed and also the history of the Jewish people in the area. Took us to a great and reasonable place for lunch. If in Barcelona or Palamos you should use Miquel.

Miquel greeted us outside of our apartment. After learning of our expectations, he toured us through the highlights, Game of Thrones locations, and shared his insights of his home town. Our mom uses a walker, and appreciated Miquel's patience as he lead us on the most convenient paths through town, and thoughtfully provided us with umbrellas for a rainy day in Girona. He also gave recommendations for dining and shopping. This was a perfect tour to start our trip, and to become aquainted. Fantastic!

Miquel was great. He's a local, actually born and raised in Girona, and gave us lots of information about the history and current events of GIrona and the area (you won't find this on Wikipedia!). Very nice and excellent conversationalist. Also very considerate, accommodating and accessible: our train arrived an hour late (accidentally took the local from Barcelona) but he waited for us (we kept in touch during the trip by email) and he still gave us the full tour. Recommended!
