My wife and I just returned from Barcelona and to say that Dan "made" our trip would be an understatment. We spent a full two days with Dan who proved himself to be not only deeply knowlegeable about the history and culture of Barcelona, but more importantly expert at designing "tours" that were specifically designed to meet our specific interest. While we were interested in seeing many of the usual sights, we were more interested in exploring the city from the eyes of the local people and thorugh food. Our first day was spent getting a personalized tour of the city's "main attractions" as well as some lesser known sites, neighborhoods, and venues. As we are "foodies" -- and like to experience new places through local food -- we spent the entire second day on a highly personalized gastronomic food tour of Barcelona. We spent hours walking through markets, big and small, sampling the fares every step along the way. Dan also took us to both "well known" favorites (El Quim, Quimet y Quimet, etc.) and even more "off the beaten path" tapas bars (sorry, we promised him we would not publicize the names), with an obligatory local vermuth at most stops. At our request, Dan helped us explore higher end establishments as well as tiny inexpensive places that were not always in the best part of town but which specialized in one or two specific delicaces. We ended the second day in a food coma and now are relegated to living off the memories. Dan also helped us with restaurant selections for the remainder of our trip, every one of which was simply spectacular. Apart from our wedding day and the bith our children, it will definaitely go down as one of the best days we have ever had. Bravo Dan, you are a true professional.
