Perfect!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
Christian’s knowledge of architecture, history, culture, and Spanish current events is extensive to say the least - we learned so much! In addition to Christian’s wealth of knowledge he’s just a great guy! So personable, friendly and accessible. He made really great recommendations for restaurants and other local points of interest. This experience was the perfect way to start our visit to Barcelona.

Great tour
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
It was an evening very well spent with Chris. Within the limited time, Chris walked me through some of the most important architectures in the city with informative knowledge and a great sense of humor. I truly enjoyed it and would definitely come back for his other experiences if I'm in Barcelona next time.

Top experience
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
If I could rate this experience as more than 5 stars, I would. The primary reason we came to Barcelona was to see the work of Antoni Gaudi firsthand. Chris was able to do with his descriptive words what Gaudi did in the transformation of inorganic material into life and legend.
