Very interesting!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Gaudí & Barcelona Legends)
Christian was our guide in Barcelona... He was very knowledgeable about the architecture and showed us things that we would neverr have noticed ourselves. It was 2 hours long and it was actually only the 2 of us (2 others we're no show) but their max is 6 anyway. Great value for a small group which are sooo much better!

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.

Excellent tour with friendly guide
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Explore hidden streets with friends)
I am not new to Barcelona, in fact I used to live in this city. However, the three hour private walking tour with Christian was surprisingly new and gave me plenty of new knowledge about history and architecture of Barcelona. The pace of the tour was excellent, the contents a good mix of well-known sights and hidden gems. I strongly recommend this private guided tour to anyone interested in knowing more about Barcelona, whether on their first visit or as a veteran of this city.

A nice souvenir to bring home
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Mosaic Workshop)
Christian gave us what felt like a comprehensive tour of Gaudi works and the history around the architecture in the city, which the adults in our group appreciated the most. He also had insightful perspectives on the Catalonian, Spanish and European cultures which were interesting to talk about. On the workshop part of the tour Angelika was very nice and all of us really liked creating simple mosaics. It was also nice to have something hand-made to bring home.

Highly recommend this experience!
for Christian and Michael’s tour (Feel like Gaudí: Tour & Mosaic Workshop)
What a wonderful afternoon! Our family (teens and their parents) so enjoyed our private tour of Barcelona with Christian! He is incredibly knowledgeable about Gaudí and “modernism” architecture. We traipsed around the city, stopping to look at fabulous architecture and hearing great stories along the way. Christian is a wonderful guide, had lots to share and made the two hours fly by. After our leisurely, two hour promenade, Christian handed us off to Angelika and we made lovely mosaics in her studio in an hour! We had our own private space, were offered to either make a magnet or decorate the top of a small box. We all chose the magnets and had such fun creating a pattern out of glass or ceramic tiles, a la Gaudí! We left on time with our beautiful work of art. We would all HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful and unique experience! Thank you for such a fun filled and enjoyable afternoon!
