Visited Girona first on the tour, has ruins from Romans occupation and fascinating history. Then on to Dali museum our guide was an art history professional so her musings on what Sal was into at different stages was great. A long day but well worth the trip.

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.

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.
