Cristina's panoramic tour of Barcelona was wonderful, especially capped with a lovely tapas meal at her home. We were a party of four with limited skills in Spanish, but her command of English was exceptional and, with her deep roots in Barcelona, she was very knowledgeable of the region's history and current affairs. We highly recommend the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Barbara, Betsy, Mark and Russ thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. I wish we would have had even more time to enjoy your company! Have a safe trip back, Barbara and Mark, and have a good time tomorrow, Betsy and Russ. Best wishes, Cristina and Peter

I spent a day with Cristina in October 2019 - just she and I. I wanted a "Pablo Casals tour," visiting his birthplace, grave site, and villa-museum outside of Barcelona. She needed to put together the day "from scratch," having never visited the places before. It was a highlight of my three weeks in Spain! The logistics were flawless, Cristina was delightful and interesting, and was an enthusiastic participant in the activities, including dining by the Mediterranean and putting our feet in the water.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Susan, for your kind words. I had a great time with you to, it was a pleasure to have the whole day for us and to share Pablo Casals fascinating world together. Looking forward to see you again, please let me know should you come back to Spain.

Cristina Hernandez Johansson made our trip to Barcelona most noteworthy! She was most accommodating in customizing our day and is superior to any guide I have used in the past. Her knowledge was extensive on all aspects of Barcelona; and her warm manner made for a most delightful tour. The icing on the cake was our visit to their interesting home for lunch! We felt truly immersed in Spanish culture of living and dining. Our meal was beyond our expectations; and the company superb!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Diane, it was such a pleasure to have you all three in Barcelona. I appreciate very much your words. Thank you for your interest, your generosity and your humour. I felt we connected right away and I enjoyed your company all day long, so much that I felt sad to say goodbye to you. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip! Looking forward meeting you again either in Spain or in the States. Have a lovely summer.
Thank you Cristina for an amazing Panoramic Tour of Barcelona and for your husband Peter's time for driving us all around to the many locations that we visited. You have been very professional in your quick responses to my emails and asking if there was additional places that we would like to see. We thoroughly enjoyed the history of Barcelona and the getting out of the car to walk around, while Peter happily went home to prepare us all an amazing lunch. Thanking you both again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karyn, Peter and Ken, Thank you for your kindness and your generosity. It was a pleasure to get to know you and take you around, you showed such an interest for all you saw. Having you at home and chatting so friendly with you was a treat for us. Please let us know if you ever come back to Barcelona as we would like to gather again. Also, it would be fantastic to travel to Australia and visit you in Melbourne, so let's keep in touch! Have a lovely trip through Spain and Portugal. Best,Cris and Peter

Absolutely amazing. I couldn't of asked for better guides to host us. The tour itself was flexible to our needs, informative, thoughtfully designed and just an absolute pleasure. The guides were amazing, so amazing that the characters here do not give me enough space to thank them properly. We finished the tours with them feeling like we had just spent two days with amazing old friends. I recommend them with the highest praise I can give.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Adam, you made my day! Thank you so much for your warm and enthusiastic words. You are the ones to be praised, as you were the kindest and nicest travelers I could have asked for. I also feel I have make new friends and look forward to see you very soon.
