Not necessarily. We will visit sites in the most efficient and logical order, customized to take into account your hotel’s location, where you’d like the tour to finish, and the best timing to avoid crowds.

The tour takes place rain or shine. The weather in Girona is very pleasant and sunny most of the time, never extremely hot or cold. However, we do get occasional rain, mostly March to May and October to November. Check the weather forecast before the tour and be prepared to enjoy your time in Girona, rain or shine.

Of course! With young children, we may limit the number of site visits and take short breaks to enjoy an ice cream. (Adults can request these little breaks as well!)

Some sites such as churches and monuments might close in the afternoon during winter or low season.

Unfortunately Girona and Besalú are not entirely wheelchair accessible.

Yes but please let us know to plan it according to your needs. We kindly recommed you take the shortest version. Notice that there are steps.

Although so far there is no notice of a specific dress code we recommend female visitors to cover their shoulders inside of the church and not wear shorts or miniskirts.
