Where you'll be

We will walk along the Costa Brava coastal path. This path is very long but we will walk in the most unknown and well preserved section. We will see the breath-taking cliffs and rock formations. In Girona I will guide you among the narrow and medieval streets to discover the history and the hidden secrets. I will show you some of the spots where the Game of Thrones show was filmed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 21 reviews.

Alan provided us with an amazing experience for our party of 6 - ages 67, 66, 37, 36, 9 and 6. The van we rode in was so clean and comfortable, and the pick up location was easy to find. We then ventured to the Costa Brava trail and were amazed by the sights and stories. I felt he really tailored the hike to our comfort level - it was a moderate hike with sweeping views and beach front playtime for the kids. An experience we will never forget. We even did some forest hiking, where wild asparagus grew and boars rooted for food. After the hike, we ventured to Girona, a truly magical town with loads of history. The medieval town became a playground for the kids to explore safely, running up and down the old staircases and alleys. We visited the cathedral and climbed the spiral staircase to the top, for a truly beautiful view of the old Roman wall guarding Girona. He provided water for us, which came in handy as we did not bring enough. I would recommend this to ANYONE young and old for a one-of-a-kind experience in Catalonia with a fantastic guide who tailors the experience for your group!

Ferran was a thoughtful and knowledgeable guide. The area of the Costa Brava we explored was breathtakingly beautiful. The time exploring in the medieval quarter was amazing for a history buff like myself. All in all a truly enjoyable way to spend the day and some memories my family and I won’t soon forget.

Both Costa Brava and Girona are fantastic places to visit. This tour combines the nature with a visit to a handsome medieval town. Ferran is a professional. He cares for your comfort throughout the tour, provides structured, adequate information about the places that you visit. You get your private times both at Costa Brava which I used for swimming and in Girona which I used for lunch. I don’t think I could have had the experience on my own in one day. Thank you, Ferran.
