Very nice tour if you are interested in history and art. I really liked it and highly recommend it. Do it
If you want to travel with 50 people and waste a lot of time listening to an explanation of everything in 2 languages this is the tour for you. The guide did not add that much to the trip. For the price my recommendation is to rent a car and drive yourself. They should at least split the group into Spanish and English clients in Figures. Although they did that in Girona, there were only 10 Spanish speakers so the English speaking group was too big.
The tour was great, very interesting Girona with old streets, buildings, squares, and outstanding museum Dali.
The was well organized and in a very relaxed pace. The bus was very comfortable and Alex the tour guide was very knowledgeable and clear in his instructions. The only issue we had with the tour that it was advertised as an English tour but the tour guide had to speak in both English and spanish. This eventually took time to repeat the inforation in both languages and listening to another language when you don't understand it is somewhat annoying specially when it is a prologned explanation.
The guide, Gemma, was efficient and clear in her communication to us. She was also very enthusiastic in her tour of the Dali's museum. She was great.
Good content and local guide in Girona was excellent. Booked for an English only tour but it ended up dual language. It makes for a lot of talking by the guide only half of which can be understood. This means less time for in depth discussion. Girona was as exciting as expected but the Dali tour far exceeded expectations. The scale of the collection, presentation and interpretation was fantastic
This was an excellent tour! Our guide for Girona, Cristina, was engaging and gave us lots of info about this beautiful town. It was especially fun how she weaved the Game of Thrones, which was filmed here in season 6, into the tour. Alex guided us through the Dali Museum and gave us his insights/ interpretations into the Surrealist. Highly recommended.
This day trip was exceptional, we had a great guide (Christine) to show us around Girona with plenty of time to stop for a proper lunch and still able to meander the streets before going on to Figueres and the magical Dali museum, we loved it..
I highly recommend this tour
Our tour guides were excellent. The tour guide in Girona knew everything about the town. The town was everything you'd expect from a European town. She took us everywhere and we learned a lot, especially about the flies! Our time in Figueres was primarily at the Dali Museum. Our guide taught us a lot about the museum and many of the various pieces within until it was time for us to explore on our own.
