Great experience, wonderful people, fun night out with our kids!
What a fun night! Veronica, Cali and the rest of the crew welcomed us and our kids with warmth and kindness into their lovely kitchen, where we spent a fun evening cooking the most delicious meal. Cali was spectacular. I loved learning some of her special family recipes (the meatballs!!), and my kids felt right at home. After 10 days of restaurant eating on our vacation, this was a welcome change of pace. Surprisingly relaxing and full of laughs. Thank you for a fantastic evening! Highly recommend!!

Awesome cooking experience
We did the Spanish Cooking Class a couple of nights ago in Barcelona. It was a great all round Spanish food experience. Starting with the introduction to the large Barcelona Markets - learning about the meat, locals, seafood, spices and taste testing ingredients and of course buying some essential ingredients for our Paella. We then walked to the cooking/dining location - nice walk through central Barcelona. Lovely little authentic restaurant set up where we prepared tapa like starters and then the Paella. We also were served Sangria and told how to make it. He answered all our questions, shared his experience and got to know the group while the coking process took place. We then all enjoyed the amazing food. Would definitely recommend this for an evening in Barcelona!

Must do while in Barcelona!
My friend and I were looking for something unique to do while traveling in Barcelona. We came across Grandma's Cooking and decided to give it a shot! Yves was an excellent host and made sure that our night was incredible. We prepared a traditional Catalan meal with our Grandma and then had an enjoyable dinner. The conversation during dinner was also a highlight for me. I think it is a great way to immerse yourself and experience a different culture. Our Grandma had a great sense of humor, but also made sure that we were learning her cooking style and secrets. I recommend this to anyone looking for something different and fun to try while in Barcelona. We would definitely do this again and any other event run by Yves!

A great photography tour with an excellent guide
Andrei was our guide on a photography tour at 11am on Friday 29th May 2015. We thought we'd simply have more time to take our own photos but we soon realised that our guide was an expert photography teacher. He was not only very knowledgeable on his subject but also on the history of Barcelona and he told us some fascinating stories. We spent a great 3 hours with him during which time we learnt a lot both about the city and also how to take better photos (his approach is very hands-on). He is witty, intelligent and inspiring. We plan to go on his tour again next year when we visit Barcelona again. Highly recommended *****

Amazing Photo Walk Tour w/†Andrei‡!
My husband and I did 2 photo walk tours w/ Andrei while in Barcelona last week. Our first was a night tour during which Andrei worked to help us improve the knowledge of setting our cameras manually and how to take artistic photos that tell a story. In addition, he imparted a lot of interesting stories and facts about Barcelona. Our Gaudi daytime photo tour was equally as fun and insightful. Andrei is so passionate about photography and eager to share his knowledge. We have done other photo tours but these were the best and I am actually using my manual settings and pleased with my results.

Photography Walking Tour with †Andrei‡ AMAZING!
Our photography tour with Andrei was simply AMAZING! First, he is a professional photographer and he's also really funny so you'll have a great time!! He gave us several tips about how to use our cameras, how to see beyond the obvious, while following some suggestions to improve our photographic skills... all of this while we walked to really interesting places around old Barcelona. During this tour, I learned many things about the history of the city and about photography. I would totally recommend this tour with Andrei!!!

Andrei the Photography Giant of Barcelona!
My husband and I were lucky enough to have Andrei as our private tour guide tonight and we are both really happy with what we have learned. Andrei taught us both some great new skills, me with my very basic phone and Muzz with his more serious camera skills. We had a great time wandering through beautiful Barcelona learning about the history and having a good laugh along the way. Andrei is a top notch photographer, teacher and a great guy. Thank you Andrei, we will recommend you to all we know.

A four-hour tour that lasted almost five hours. The day was spoilt by being a very wet afternoon that almost derailed the tour but Francisco took it all in his stride and showed us what he could whilst it was raining but always hoped that the weather would fine up which it eventually did. We were able to spend some good dry time at both Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. Francisco's deep knowledge and love of his hometown is second to none. A great start to our four-day stay in Barcelona.

An amazing way to explore the city and learn about photography
The tour was a great exprience, combining photography and sightseeing around Barcelona. We started the tour with an introduction about how to use Polaroid cameras and then we went exploring the local and secrets spots of the Gotico, Born, Barceloneta and we finished with the Parque de la Ciutadella.
I definitely recommend the tour for anyone who want to know more about Barcelona and keep souvenirs with the pictures !!! I went solo but you can go with friends or family!
Polaroid Photo Tour Barcelona
Great experience and got great shots
Overall this was a good tour and a lot of fun. Andrei, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona and was good about customizing his teaching to my level of knowledge. Furthermore, he was patient with me as I was shooting mostly film. I would recommend this tour for anyone wishing to take a different and in my opinion more interesting approach to photographing the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Excellent service! Francisco is not only extremely knowledgeable and friendly but accommodating and easy going. I was so happy to have had him while visiting Sagrada; the details provided by him made our experience there whole. And his actually spending his childhood in Guell Park gave us insights we would not have been able to get anywhere else. Thank you very much, Francisco!

Wonderful cooking experience!
My husband and I had a great night preparing tapas, cooking paella and making sangria - and of course eating and drinking it all! The evening started off with a trip to the market, which was fun. The chef was excellent. We picked up a lot of tips for our own paella. We had a class of about 12, which I think was a good size. Would definitely recommend.

Francisco is a wonderful guide who led us through some of Gaudi's Most impressive works and described them and all the colorful history and impact of his work. To add to this he is a very delightful guy to spend more than four hours with. He added personal touches including photos of us that arrived in our e-mail shortly after the tour.

My husband and I took a "Grandma's Cooking Class" when we were in Barcelona for our honeymoon. We had an absolute blast!! We loved how authentic everything was -- including the venue! The food was also incredible-- we couldn't believe we helped make it! Highly recommend this activity to anyone traveling in Barcelona!

Beautiful evening punctuated by real emotion
The Flamenco party was particularly successful. At the end of the evening a meal consisting of Tapas was served. We had conversations with people of all nationalities and it was a real sharing. Also as it was the birthday of one of the guests the restaurateur did not hesitate to offer us a bottle of champagne.

Great night, great food, great value!
We absolutely loved this cooking class- it was a great way to briefly explore the market, learn a bit about Castilian cuisine, and eat a delicious meal. If you are on the fence you should definitely book this experience- it was a highlight of our time in Barcelona and the price was unbeatable.

Francisco represents Barcelona so very well!
Our Gaudí tour was amazingly well planned. Excellent communication, easy access, pleasant walks, lots of information, excellent recommendations and a wonderful personality to share it! Francisco shares his wealth of local knowledge, history, and pride in his home with humor and enthusiasm.

Amazing experience!
Very good experience, in a young and friendly environment. I'm not an expert about Polaroid but, thanks to Pri, I learnt how to use it and now I have some beautiful memories of the Born, one of the most ancient areas of Barcelona! Thank you Pri, I really recommend your tour! :)

Favorite thing in Barcelona!
This experience was our favorite out of all our time in Barcelona- not to mention tasty! So cool to get to go to the fresh market, see the seafood, then learn to clean it. Added bonus was the sangria and tapas as the chef prepared the kitchen! This is a must do!
