Excellent experience. Guide did a great job when a member of the tour group was injured in Girona. Only detraction was the Flower Festival in Girona which made it crowded. However, superb experience.
Loved this trip. The guide in Girona was excellent. Girona is a place that I would love to visit again. The Dali was unbelievable, but very crowded.
Very pleased with the guide, bus and the tour. I so loved this area. You do a good job. People in office were very helpful.
Excellent tour, we thoroughly enjoyed the informative guide and the walking tour of Girona with local guide was very interesting followd by the tour of Salvador Dali museum in Figueres which was fabulous. We felt it was a good mix with free time to also enjoy each place. Thanks for a wonderful day.
The tour was excellent. The tour bus guide spoke both English and Spanish. The tour provided a tour book so you received a street layout of both cities. The first stop was Girona and the group was broken into 2 groups, English and Spanish which meant you didn't have to wait for the repeat of information for the other language group. We went on a walking tour of the city which was not rushed and there was ample free time after the tour to explore and go back to anything you may have wanted to look at closer and still have time for a nice short lunch. We then moved on to Figueres and the Dali Museum. There was ample time to go through the Dali museum. We do not to go and explore the city around the museum but there was time if you wanted to do that. The tour guide on the bus was very knowledgeable and asked every person if they had any questions before each stop and was very clear about the times to meet back up at the bus. It was well worth the money. And Dali was a crazy man!!!!!
Very enjoyable. The guide in Girona was informative and gave us time to explor on our own at the end of his tour.
Girona is a gem of a city located not far from Barcelona. It has its own history and background. Figures was especially memorable as it was close to our hearts because we have always valued Dali's work. The fact that we were able to go to his art and jewel museums was the highlight of this particular tour for us.
This tour covered a lot in one day, but , if you are up for it, it is well worth it. Girona is is a delight. We had a wonderful tour guide, a native of Girona, who shared many wonderful stories about this delightful town. The visit to the Dali museum was amazing. Personally I am a big fan of Dali so I was in heaven - but even if you don't care for his work, you cannot help but be impressed by this amazing building and all that is in it. Our guide on the bus was great - very entertaining and informative. I really enjoyed this trip as did my fifteen year old daughter.
Guides (on bus and locations) were great. Tour size did not bother us as everyone splits up during the free time period. Girona was a charming small town. Just enough time to walk around. Perhaps a little more time would have been nice - like an extra 30 minutes. Figueres was nuts - as we got there in the afternoon and it was loaded with people to see the Dali Museum. It was tiring to work your way through the masses. We opted an extra $5 Euros for a private guide to walk us through the museum and I think that is a must. Otherwise you just get lost in the helter skelter craziness of working your way through the crowds and having no idea of the significance of any of Dali's art work. Getting in was no wait because we had the guide - the area was just crowded. If I go again, I would go in the morning as I would hope the crowds would be lesser. We were there in mid-July on a weekday. But we still really enjoyed the trip and also had time to walk around the immediate area and buy gifts and spend time in the museum gift shop as well. Maybe an extra 30 minutes here would help if you wanted to see more than just the museum.
Great trip. Girona was a very pleasant diversion. Only one problem which is not Viator's fault: there was a mentally-ill employee in the jewelry exhibit who physically attacked my spouse and me because we unknowingly tried to go out the "in" revolving door. Why? It's a REVOLVING door! Anyway, she needs help.
