What people are saying about Girona

We really liked this trip - our guide, Roger, was excellent, very informative. We had a little over two hours at the monastery, which was enough for a guided tour, the cathedral and the art museum. We only saw the madonna from far away - didn't know you had to reserve tickets for that ahead of time and there was a long line. Took the cable car down to meet the bus and then went to lunch. The lunch was plentiful and tasty and we had a nice chat with our group over wine. The groups are small, we had maybe a dozen people. Would recommend this tour!

We had a great time. The view was amazing, and the cava and cake during the flight really made it unique. The breakfast after was a perfect end to a great experience!

A great day trip fitting in a variety of beautiful and interesting places. Our guide was informative and friendly and spoke great English.

Super nice, friendly and helpful guide. Relaxed travel. Beautiful stops.

In good weather, very nice view over the bays and countryside
