Luis was an excellent tour guide. This day trip was worth every penny- one of our favorite things we did in our week long trip to Barcelona! Luis was friendly and super knowledgable. Everyone in our group agreed we learned so much from him and had a wonderful time. We had actually done a different tour with another company a few days prior that we were disappointed with, so we had even more appreciation for how amazing this day trip was. And as a bonus- we are huge Game of Thrones fans and Luis showed us all the filming spots in Girona (and took some great pictures for us)! Thank you so much Luis!

Our host Gloria, was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area! She gave us ample time every location to explore on our own and was even willing to spend time with us as we had lunch with absolutely stunning views. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Carmelo was so thorough and enthusiastic to give his knowledge to others. he has a passion for the area and entertains many questions along the way. he definitely was willing to cater to the needs of the particular group that I was with.
