Highlight of Spain!

Marc Sanchez was the perfect guide. He knows everything that there is to know about Jewish history in Girona and Besalu. He also pointed out where "Game of Thrones" was filmed in Girona -- that was fun! We learned so much from him. This tour was the highlight of our stay in Spain. Both towns are amazing. Besalu looks like it is still in the middle ages (but sparkling clean!) Take this tour - it is amazing!

Spectacular tour of Jewish history in Girona and Besalu. We ended up being the only ones on the tour, but Marc and Carmen did not disappoint. Marc was amazing with his knowledge of Jewish history and culture, pointing out not just the obvious things but also small facts and things that are personal to someone with Jewish heritage. We went to Besalu first, which was crucial to beating tour bus crowds. We had the city to ourselves. Carmen obtained the mikveh key and we were the only ones in there. In Girona,thew Jewish museum was great, and our tour of the town featured interesting stories of other religions and Spanish history. Can't say enough about Marc - he answered every question from historical and current points of view, and he really cared that we understood what he was saying. This tour was a highlight of our time in Spain. We caught an early train from Barcelona just for the day, and it was totally worth it.
