Very friendly and knowledgeable guide

Carolina is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. She is a local and takes pride in her city. She knows a lot about Girona, its history and legends, and also about the Game of Thrones scenes filmed there. She put everything in context with photos and videos.

Awesome!

A really lovely tour. Our guide was great. Sorry, I don't remember her name. On the bus to Girona she provided great history, but was a little boring to listen to. When we got to Girona, she was so passionate and really interesting. It was a very pleasant tour. Thank you.
