I've lived my whole life in Girona. I know and admire its history, from Roman era until the current times. I show places that tourists usually don't reach, allowing you to meet the city in a different, more courious way.

After coming to Girona during a quiet period with very few tourists, every other tour guide in Girona cancelled on me because of insufficient numbers - but not Nil! Nil was happy to take me, even if it ended up being a private tour (for the usual price!) This is a shorter tour that, as the description says, reveals some of the more curious details of Girona's old town rather than providing a sweeping overview of its history or taking you to Game of Thrones filming locations. Gracias Nil!

Nil's tour was fantastic. His enthusiasm for the history of the city really shone through and we learned lots of interesting stories about Girona.

Nil was very friendly, polite and very easy to get along with. He has excellent knowledge and explains how and why Girona has evolved as it has. We took our dog along with us also which was absolutely fine. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Nil to other visitors.

Nil’s tour was excellent. Very well structured and provided a great overview of Girona with some opportunities to take in some excellent views of the city.

A quick over view of some of the city’s curious places, like “kissing the lioness’s butt” and how flies made Napoleon and his army retreat from Girona.

Without this tour I would have missed many fascinating facts about Girona - I’m very happy I took it! Nil was a great and polite guide with a clear interest in the history of this beautiful city. I can definitely recommend this tour.
