I have lived in Catalonia for six years. I love walking in the mountains and countryside and discovering ancient castles & Medieval villages. I love history and architecture and I am always looking for new views and experiences. Girona is a 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.

Tour description

My tour takes you through the Historic Center 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. Some of the historic sites were used as filming locations for the Game of Thrones series. The tour ends in a beautiful square where you will find cafés and restaurants and The Festive Christmas markets. This is an 'Easy Walking Tour', however many of the streets in the old town are cobbled and there are 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 Eiffel Bridge.  PLEASE BOOK YOUR TOUR IN ADVANCE (AT LEAST 3 HOURS BEFORE THE TOUR STARTS) I accept bookings from solo travelers, but I will only confirm a tour that has bookings of the minimum number of attendees needed to make up a group. Please leave a contact number so that I can contact you easily. If you have any other questions please send me a message.

Christian was great, he covered a variety of topics including history of the town and monuments, local legends, and Game of Thrones set locations. Very admirable to chat with as well, and cracked a few jokes along the way.

Christian went over and beyond, first of all, he still met up with us despite the fact that he had moved the timings to an earlier walk due to the weather but still accommodated me and my friend at a later time with it being just us two doing the walk. This was because we had to travel further to Girona. and wouldn’t be able to make at earlier start. Christian was knowledgeable and shared many interesting historical facts, and despite us not knowing much about game of thrones it was actually cool to see all the places they had filmed, with Christian showing us pictures of the scenes of the filming locations. We actually ended up on the same train as him on the way back as our hotel was on the way. Christian shared many places to visit and tips on how to get there in his own time. We both highly recommend Christian and the tour!!
