I have lived in Catalonia for three years now. I love walking in the mountains and countryside and discovering ancient castles and medieval villages. The coastline here is stunning and the beaches and coves are beautiful. I have always been interested in history and architecture and I am always looking for new views and experiences. Girona is an impressive and fascinating city, it has many fine buildings and is rich in culture. I look forward to sharing a few of these wonderful places with you.

About the tour

My tour takes you through the Historic Centre of Girona.

On our journey through the medieval streets you will step back in time.

Discover the history of the ancient sites and through stories of old, meet characters of myth and legend.

The tour stops at the filming locations used for the GAME OF THRONES series.

This is an 'Easy Walking Tour', however many of the streets in the old town are cobbled and there are some steps and small hills. The old town is very compact and covers a small area, so we have time to visit many of the important sites, walking at a relaxed pace and stopping to take photo's and enjoy the atmosphere of the City. We will not go into any of the buildings. Entry to the Cathedral, Arabic baths and museums is ticketed, so you may wish to return to those places to visit the interiors. The duration of my tour is approximately 2 hours.

Some of the places we will visit are :

The Lioness of Girona

The Basilica of Sant Feliu

The Arabic Baths

The Cathedral

The Jewish Quarter

Medieval Streets of The Old Town

The Steps of Sant Martí Sacosta

The Eiffel Bridge

PLEASE BOOK YOUR TOUR IN ADVANCE (AT LEAST 3 HOURS BEFORE THE TOUR STARTS)

I accept bookings from solo travellers, but unfortunately I can only run the tour with two people or more (so if I have only received a booking from one person by the morning of that tour, I will have to cancel)

Please leave a contact number so that I can contact you directly if necessary.

If you are planning to just turn up at the meeting point it would be best to send me a message here to confirm that the tour is running...if it is, you will of course be very welcome to join us.

If you would prefer to take a late afternoon or early evening tour please send me a message, I may be able to help you.

If you have any other questions please send me a message.

Meeting point

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
