Girona, Figueres and Dali Museum Day Trip from Barcelona
Laila was a great guide. Very informative and very helpful throughout the whole trip. Every detail of the trip is planned well and they mix in free time in Girona and Figueres. The bus was clean and well kept - both attractions were enjoyable.

Girona and Dali Museum Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up from Barcelona
I had a great time with my mother at the tour. We are both art lovers and interested about artist’s lifestorys. Our guide Ruben was very specific about Dali’s both private and artist life and told amazingly interesting storys ❤️ There was enough time to see everything and no feeling of horry at any place! Also special thanks to Ruben for showing me in Girona some Game of Thrones filming locations!

Girona Game of Thrones City
A very good quick tour of Girona and the places of where some scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed at. Had an hour and a half of free time to roam around the city and recreate the scenes from GoT which was great 👍🏽 Would highly recommend to try out “Jaime Lannister’s Golden Hand” ice cream from Rocambolesc Gelateria.

We loved visiting Girona and the Game of Thrones locations. Our guide Ruben was very patient and knowledgeable. The Dali Museum was ok, we had greater expectations. I guess all the best work is spread throughout the world.

Girona and Dali Museum Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up from Barcelona
The Dali Museum was the highlight of our trip to Spain, hands down! It was unique and Dali's genius and incredible curatorship of the Museum will stay with me for a long time. Thanks to Vincente's knowledge and guidance of Dali's vision as we make our way to the Museum. He was very passionate about Dali's life and work and it shows in his delivery. This is a tour of a lifetime and Vincente had a big contribution to it. Take the tour and you won't regret it!!!
