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.
This is an 'Easy Walking Tour', however many of the streets in the old town are cobbled and there are lots of steps.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 festive 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. 
The tour ends in a beautiful square where you will find cafés and restaurants. 
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.

Just had an awesome tour with Christian in Girona! He's an independent guide who clearly loves what he does. His passion for storytelling made the experience super engaging, and he showed us the most important and interesting sites of the city. We even visited the locations where Game of Thrones scenes were filmed! Christian has a great personality, and he went the extra mile by extending the tour for us. Highly recommend checking out his tour for a fun, authentic way to explore Girona :)

Christian was an amazing guide to Girona. Extremely knowledgeable and patient with our kids that made tons of questions. He took us on a 2 hour walk tour around the city where every step we listened to history and also interesting facts about Game of Thrones filming. The walk was informative and at the same time fun and entertaining. He was able to catch my 3 kids attention all the path. We highly recommend Christian as a guide to Girona!
