Awesome tour and tour guide
The tour guide Miquel was great and the best. He was very jovial while at the same time informative. He made this tour worthwhile with his wit and friendliness. Made it less strenuous. He also helped us order food at the restaurant in Costa Brava. Highly recommend this tour especially with Miquel.

Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona
The trip was well organised and on time, with an interesting walking tour of Girona. We wished there was more time to explore Girona and Figueres, as too much time was spent at the Dali Museum tour. The Dali museum was spectacular.

Girona and Costa Brava Private Tour with Pick Up from Barcelona
Our guide, Adrian was friendly, engaging and professional. The day we spent with him was delightful. Girona is a very interesting and historic town of many periods, and Adrian explained history and myth. The Costa Brava portion of the trip is beautiful and we had a delicious fresh fish meal at a spot Adrian reserved for us.

From Barcelona: Private Girona and Figueres with Dali Museum Tour
My sister and I booked a private tour and it was a fabulous excursion to the Dali Museum (where Miguel knew all nooks and crannies) and medieval Girona (where parts of Game of Thrones was filmed). He also took us to a tapas restaurant on a beautiful plaza where the food was even better than Barcelona. Miguel was flexible and courteous and a joy to be around.
