Perhaps you have already started mapping out your perfect itinerary, but somehow it doesn’t add up?

Brainstorming

Maybe you are visiting Catalonia for the first time and have no idea about the country.

I’ll answer any questions you have about the different regions, local culture, public transport, what to pack and other things you should know before you go.

Answering specific questions

Ask for specific hotel or restaurant suggestions tailored to your budget and preferences or for local experiences or off-the-beaten-path adventures.

You’ll also get random questions answered that Google or message boards cannot provide answers to.

We won’t record the sessions under any circumstance, and all the info and questions you may have are private.

What if I forget to ask something?
Don’t panic! If there’s something that’s still not clear after the call, we will be happy to help.
