The ultimate goal of travelling is to enjoy ourselves. When we travel we look forward to seeing new places and people, and discover different ways of living and understanding life. We long to be marvelled and to capture all that the world offers. This possibility awakens not only our innate instinct for knowing but also feelings and emotions within us that often remain dormant in our day-to-day lives.

My wife and I spent 2 days with Gregorio touring Barcelona in Sept. 2012. A wonderful, enriching experience as he focused on not only the historic detail - but also the cultural impact and local life styles as well. Great experience. Would highly recommend him.
