What an experience! I had such a great time. Luis was an amazing host and a skilled storyteller. I highly recommend this to anyone planning to visit Barcelona for the first time. He will set you up with a truly unique and special plan for your trip to Barcelona.

At first, I was a bit hesitant because the whole idea of having someone tune in online with me to get me prepared for my trip seemed a bit odd. However, I am glad I made the decision to sign up for it. During the experience Luis told me EVERYTHING. All the cool places, all the hidden secrets, all the restaurants, tapa bars that I should know about. Barcelona is a big city with so many things to see and do. It feels good being prepared and going with a plan. A short experience that can save you lots of time and money! Thank you, Luis!

Luis went out of his way to make me feel really comfortable about my trip to Barcelona. He not only told me where are the best places to go to, he also gave me extra info about each. I had so much fun and I have learnt so many secrets about the city. I ended up saving a lot of time and money, by knowing exactly where to go and what to do. All his recommendations were great!
