Dear Katrien:  We have returned home from Spain, and I wanted to take the time to write and let you know what a wonderful tour of Barcelona we had with Mar.  The time flew by, and we covered not only a lot of physical territory, but were treated to Mar’s deep appreciation and knowledge for the history of her city.  I feel more connected to Barcelona, and hope to return.

Regards, Ellen Pfeffer

Hola Katrien,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for all your help and typically wonderful Spanish hospitality.
We did a tour 6th sept My favourite fusion and it was so enjoyable.
The guide, (whose name I have stupidly forgotten due to jet lag and travelling all these weeks), was such a lovely person. I really enjoyed speaking with her and want to wish her all the best with her writing and journalism.
I loved El Born and La Ribera and felt much more orientated to take in Barcelona after the tour. Prior to visiting Barcelona, I was concerned that I would only be able to experience the more shallow touristy side of things – I felt like this helped me step “over the thresh hold” – if that is possible in only a week or so… I found people so warm and enthusiastic and honest in opinion (and everything else) in Barcelona, it was really touching. I felt very honoured.

I want to thank you also for organising our stay with Quico and Maurizio at Las Tres ranas. What wonderful charming special people. So open hearted. We felt very honoured to share this sanctuary in the busy but fascinating Barri gotic.

I am wanting to do anything I can to help promote and tell other people about My Favourite things. I will be writing to Lonely Planet and forums there.

Best of luck to you, maybe we will be back one day I hope! thank you so much once again,

Amy

Hi Katrien,
Just wanted to once again thank you so much for a very nice day Barcelona: I was very impressed by the way you handeld our group, although I”m even more impressed by the fact that you managed to lead another group the morning after… You must have been real tired, or you are a lot tougher than the rest. I”m contacting our agent in Barcelona to tell them about you and recommend you, hoping to be able to bring you some business. Say hi to your friend for me, and take care.

Regards

I just wanted to say that Helen and I had a brilliant tour of the Old City. We were really pleased with the whole thing, the tour, your guide, etc. It was like being shown around by a friend. We shall certainly recommend your tours in the future!
