What you'll do

I look forward to being your host on this amazing online adventure where we will discover the hidden secrets of Barcelona, my hometown and favorite city in the world. We will discover its history, geography, food, wine, festivals, architecture, legends, myths, traditions, and customs. This live experience from the comfort of your home will include real pictures, videos, google earth, street view, tons of fun facts, games, and a 10 question quiz to play all together at the end of the experience!

In the first part of the tour, we will learn about geography, history, festivals, Catalonian customs and traditions, and of course, traditional Spanish food!

In the second part, I will give you a tour of the most visited landmarks in Barcelona, including the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Casa Batlló, Barcelona Football Club stadium, Markets, the Ramblas, and many more surprises!

Connect your device to wifi, get a glass of Tempranillo wine and be prepared to actively participate in this live session by asking any questions you want whilst you meet fellow travelers from all around the world you can also interact with!

So sit back, relax and enjoy traveling from the comfort of your home! I promise you are here for a treat!

Love,

Gabo Candal

Since reading Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne at the age of six, I wanted to follow in my hero Phileas Fogg’s footsteps. My first taste of travel was at 17 when I hitchhiked to Patagonia and was overwhelmed by the nature and landscapes of my homeland of Argentina.
I'm a theatre actor, rock ’n’ roll band manager, master of reiki, and even a chartered public accountant. In 2011, I spent a year working in New Zealand before taking in 94 countries in a two-year epic adventure around the world. Now I work as a tour guide since 2014 and haven't looked back.
My biggest accomplishment is having a burger named after me in New Zealand! And because of my passion for travel and put a smile on everyone who roams with me, the Wanderlust Magazine in London granted me the award of being one of the top 10 tour guides in the world in 2018.

From the planning to the execution, Gabo has been an incredible host and tour guide. Firstly, his friendly and welcoming personality meant that though I was nervous to book a virtual event (for a birthday, with the tour as a surprise for my guests), his questions, enthusiasm and friendliness made me confident he would do his best to make it a fun event. And it was! He welcomed us so well, connected with all of us, personalised it to suit the occasion and made everyone laugh, smile and learn a lot. There were something like 17 people on the call and he handled this very well. Even the virtual tour aspect was impressive, and he incorporated maps, images, videos and more to make it as engaging as possible. All in all, I had a wonderful time, as did everyone who reached out to me to specifically compliment Gabo and the experience. So grateful for this experience and despite the pandemic this has managed to be a very memorable birthday for me and my friends and family.

I always wanted to visit Barcelona, now I got the opportunity to take a peek at the city and it's culture with Gabo's amazing tour. We loved your personal approach and how you interacted with us. I'll definitely want to visit the city on my own after the pandemic, maybe we'll be able to visit some of the nice spots in person then.

Gabo was the best host we could have imagined for our virtual Barcelona tour. We didn’t know what to expect since this was our first virtual family trip, but Gabo gave us an amazing Barcelona night and everyone’s Wanderlust definitely kicked in. I can highly recommend the tour to anyone who wants a Barcelona night as authentic as it gets with COVID (I enjoyed it with a Tempranillo) and I look forward to visiting the city again in the future (hopefully with an in person tour again with Gabo)!

Great way of getting a group together (like a team corporate event) as a way of inspiring people who love to travel and would like to visit Spain (e.g. Barcelona)

I really enjoyed the presentation. Gabo was fun and showed us so much of Spain. It is so beautiful. I now want to visit. It was the way he showed us that was so great, it enticed us. It was fun to learn about all the languages, the regions, and wine. All of it was so informative. It was virtual travelling at its best.
