VISIT GIRONA WITH OUR PRIVATE GIRONA TOURS

100% Private
Half Day
Chauffeured
Out of Town
Kid Friendly
Not For Walking Issues
Christian Heritage
Jewish Heritage

Are you interested in Jewish Heritage? Or are you passionate about history, specially the Middle Ages? Or would you maybe want to sped a day outside of Barcelona, visiting some picturesque area away from the tourist crowds? Are you maybe a fan of Game of Thrones?

The city of Girona is specially known for its medieval section and a remarkable Jewish Quarter (the “Call”), plus its history is full of interesting facts, and its architecture hides fascinating details and lots of photo opportunities that never fail. That might be why it was chosen to be Braavos for the 6th season of Game of Thrones!

But unless you are used to taking trains abroad and navigate alleys and backstreets just for the pleasure of getting lost… visiting in Girona on your own can be tricky. Or at least, you are likely to miss a lot!

Instead, with this private Girona day tour from Barcelona you’ll get to visit everything easily with your tour guide, who knows her way and the local history, and will be happy to adapt to your interests and preferences. You’ll also have a dedicated driver to take you there and back to Barcelona, for maximum travel comfort.

ADD LUNCH TO YOUR TOUR

A CATALAN MEAL

On a 6-hour tour you’ll be back to Barcelona on time for a late lunch on your own. But if you prefer, you can add two extra hours so we can take you to an authentic Catalan restaurant open in a traditional masia farmhouse, for a traditional meal.

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU?

This tour works great for people able to walk, very interested in history (specially medieval and Jewish), or that just want to spend a lovely day out of town away from the tourist crowds.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour is child-friendly if we focus more on the exploration and the local legends than in the historical part.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, please note that the visit of Girona involves sections of stairs and uphill cobblestone streets. We recommend to ask your guide to take you on the little tourist train instead of walking you around.

If you’d like to have lunch during the tour but a farmhouse doesn’t sound appealing enough, we can take you to the seaside instead! Check out our Costa Brava and Girona tour.

CAN WE TAKE THE TRAIN?

I’m afraid that the train to Girona from Barcelona schedules rarely allow us to take you there just for a half day and most of the time we’ll either have to stay for lunch (making it an 8-hour tour) or getting up really early to get an early morning train.

Also, take into account that having to pay for the guide’s train ride besides yours, and the taxi from the fast-speed train station to the Old Town of Girona and back, the train is only cost-efficient for couples, but not for larger parties.

  • PRICING

    TOTAL PER TOUR (not per person)
    6-HOUR TOUR*:  €485
    8-HOUR TOUR:  €630
    *The availability of 6-hour tours will depend on the season’s train schedule.

  • ADDITIONAL COSTS

    Taxis in Barcelona (hotel to train station): Around €10/ride
    Taxis in Figueres (train station to museum): Around €10/ride
    AVE fast speed train: around €60/person (ROUND TRIP) – Fees fluctuate depending on time/date/availability just like airplane tickets.


    Clients are requested to pay for the guide’s train tickets, that will be paid beforehand upon booking.

Miriam took me to Girona, the delightful medieval city about an hour away. Having attended university there, she knew both the history and the fun experiences of having been a student, living initially in a convent with the nuns! You can’t go wrong choosing this private tour company.
