Juan's tour provided us with new insight into the food served at Christmas markets, and some of the decorations and shops commonly seen at Christmas markets. Juan curated a perfect menu, and every food stall that he took us to was delicious and unfamiliar. While we enjoyed Juan's tour, we did walk away hungry. One thing to note for future guests, the food listed in the description is for the entire group, so it essentially works out to three small courses and two snacks per guest, with drinks. Lastly, and most important, Juan was professional and thoroughly responsive to my feedback, and I have no doubt that future guests will have a great experience!

Juan was an awesome guide and did a great job of giving us insight into the food and culture of Berlin. He had a deep knowledge of the food and it was something I felt I could not have experienced otherwise. He was super friendly, had great stories, and picked great food for us to try. I would 100% recommend his tour to people wanting to know more about Berlin, the food scene, and the Christmas markets.

Juan was a great host. We went to several Christmas markets while in Germany, but Juans’s knowledge and appreciation for different cultures really made this experience special. He is a world traveler and offers such a unique perspective that we wouldn’t have been able to get anywhere else. I would recommend booking air BnB experience if you’re interested in learning more about cultures around the world and experience a Christmas market with an extremely knowledgeable host. Our trip wouldn’t have been the same without Juan’s guidance and advice. Thank you so much Juan and thank you for blessing me with Raclette!

We can absolutely recommend Juan’s tours he is an brilliant storyteller and we were blown away with his personalized touches of for example pre-purchasing food treats where the ques would be long!
