What a memorable tour!
We saw at least 6 different places on this full day private tour. It was really amazing and worth every penny spent. Andre was very professional and friendly. He spent the whole day with us from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm. This tour was the highlight of our visit to Barcelona. We wished that we stayed a few nights at each village we visited.

Girona and Dali Museum Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up from Barcelona
Miguel Arnau was so cheerful and enthusiastic. His tour of the Girona, and especially the Dali Museum in Figueres was exceptional. The Dali Museum wouldn’t have been half as good without him.

Girona and Dali Museum Small Group Tour with Hotel Pick-up from Barcelona
This tour was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona, such a great day! The Dali Museum was fabulous, you should all see it. The tour guide Miquel Arnau was the best, he knew so much about Dali and history and was also funny and a great driver. He seems to love what he is doing. Girona was a great place to visit as well, I highly recommend this tour!

Private Girona And Costa Brava Tour - Day Trip From Barcelona - With Pickup
Our guide, Adrian was friendly, engaging and professional. The day we spent with him was delightful. Girona is a very interesting and historic town of many periods, and Adrian explained history and myth. The Costa Brava portion of the trip is beautiful and we had a delicious fresh fish meal at a spot Adrian reserved for us.

From Barcelona: Private Girona and Figueres with Dali Museum Tour
My sister and I booked a private tour and it was a fabulous excursion to the Dali Museum (where Miguel knew all nooks and crannies) and medieval Girona (where parts of Game of Thrones was filmed). He also took us to a tapas restaurant on a beautiful plaza where the food was even better than Barcelona. Miguel was flexible and courteous and a joy to be around.
