We are very happy that we were featured on German television on July 29th, 2022 in the travel programme “Abenteuer leben täglich” (living adventures daily) on the 7th largest network, Kabel 1. We presented this experience and showed the authentic side of the historic center of Barcelona. See the video here.

” I had a great time with Christian. He was very personable, very well-read and just a great storyteller. More than that, he showed us places I would have never found myself and managed to zoom in on small details that stood out for him. He was very open to questions and took his time to answer them. I’d do the tour again next time I´m in the city.”
