We joined Guillermo & Cristina for the "Live Tapas Dinner" in their home. WOW.

We were five American girls in Barcelona for a short time, wanting to understand the local culture. We found an aboslute GEM among so many options with Guillermo and Cristina!! They accomodated us for a time that would work, and welcomed us into their home (and wine selection!). We learned things about the culture in Spain that we never would have gotten if it hadn't been for them. They were personable, wonderfully hospitable, and we had the most wonderful night! This was the absolute perfect start to our vacation. Because of this experience (our first with EatWith), we cannot wait to travel to other locations and try out more!!

Thank you so much< Guillermo & Cristina, good luck with all that you are doing!!

I was recently in Barcelona with a group of my 8th grade students for a language immersion program. Guille and Cristina invited us into their home for an authentic Spanish meal and conversation. Two hours with them flew by. They are so nice, friendly, and hospitable. My students and I genuinely loved this experience. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a real experience with real locals rather than eating at restaurants every day.

Guillermo and Christina were great. We had great a fun experience learning to make Seafood Paella and it tasted great. They Guillermo and Christina are genuinely nice people. Our conversations felt like we knew them for a while and we did not notice how time passed by while being at their place. They also gave us some really good travel advice for Barcelona. We had a fantastic EatWith experience with Guillermo and Christina.
