We used Welcome Pickups for transfers 3 different times while in Barcelona. All the drivers were on time, courteous, and very helpful. We also did a day trip with Khazan to Girona & Tossa de Mar which was an excellent time - especially the chocolates he had for us!

About the ride
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, and enjoy half a day in the historical city of Girona were lots of Game Of Thrones shots were filmed. Admire the spectacular 14th-century gothic architecture, stroll through the historic Jewish Quarter, and see the top historical landmarks of Girona.
On the day of your choosing, a Welcome driver will pick you up from your accommodation and take you on the lovely journey to Girona. The journey from Barcelona to Girona takes around an hour, so it gives you plenty of time to relax, enjoy the free refreshments onboard, and soak up the beautiful Spanish countryside. Although you can completely customize your tour, the following itinerary is one we suggest.
Once you arrive in the old city of Girona, your driver will take you to the historic 5Jewish Quarter. The is the perfect place to get out of the car and stretch your legs while admiring the beautiful medieval streets. In this area you can find the traditional Arab Baths, the gothic Collegiate Church of Sant Feliu, and the ancient 3Girona Cathedral. Climb the 86 steps of the Cathedral and get a close-up view of Catalan Architecture created by Jaume Fabre.
Your driver will then take you past the famous 4Onyar River so you can admire all the lovely little colored houses resting on its banks, and perhaps stop to take some iconic Girona photos. Your next stop will be at one of the most popular landmarks in the city, the medieval City Walls. If you have time, you can walk the entire length of the walls and climb the lookout towers, where you can enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city below.
As you near the middle of your tour, you can take a break and enjoy an authentic Spanish lunch. Ask your driver for a restaurant recommendation, or take a walk around the centre of the city to find your perfect spot. After you have restored some of your energy, you can choose to spend the rest of the day exploring Girona, or you can visit the two nearby towns: 6Medieval Town of Pals and 7Medieval Town of Peratallada.
Pals is a quaint medieval village full of cobblestone streets, gothic architecture and lovely little cafes. While in this town, be sure to check out the famous Roman style Torre de les Hores, a huge tower standing proudly above the other buildings. Peratallada is an extremely well-preserved feudal village, best known for its stone buildings, carved from the moat which encircles most of the city. This village is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee before embarking on the return journey to Barcelona.
