Amazing Tour

"Our group of six had a perfect afternoon with Christian. He shared history, local knowledge, gave restaurant recommendations and answered all our questions about the area. My favorite part? He told us about a local flamenco show and saved me almost $300 on a tourist trap. Thanks, Christian! I wish we had had the time to take one of your food tours. Next time!"
Sehr empfehlenswert!

Lieber Christian,
es war eine ganz besondere foodtour.
Du hast genau unseren Geschmack getroffen. Dein Wissen über Barcelona war sehr bemerkenswert und du hast uns ganz tolle Plätze gezeigt, die wir sehr wahrscheinlich sonst nicht wahrgenommen hätten.
Danke dafür.
Wir kommen sehr gerne einmal wieder.
Liebe Grüße auch an Michael
Toller Spaziergang durch und um die Altstadt herum

Wir hatten die Tour zusammen mit Michael, der uns sehr viele schöne Stellen, Gebäude und Plätze überwiegend in El Born gezeigt und erklärt hat, die wir ohne ihn nicht angepeilt hätten. Es war sehr interessant und kurzweilig und Michael hat sich sehr viel Zeit für uns genommen. Die Tour hat unseren Aufenthalt echt bereichert. Sehr zu empfehlen!
