'' Arturo is Mexican, Mirka comes from Slovakia. They met in Germany, communicate in English, and live their dream in Barcelona '' - that pretty much sums up our adventurous relationship. We both love traveling and have been guiding in Germany, France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands and we love learning about different cultures. We are both passionate photographers and we have decided to blend our passions turning them into a profession in a place where you indeed find the mixture of it all - and a city close to our hearts. Step into the exciting world and discover the famous and hidden wonders of Barcelona with us - in ZOOM IN BARCELONA TOURS!
She said about him:
'' Arturo is a gem - he has a big heart and always unselfishly helps others. He is a proud Mexican and loves his family and I admire his enthusiasm for trying to experience all that is possible to do in this life from visiting different countries through eating weird things to making friends with people from all walks of life. I love that he is so openminded - you may talk to him about life and things very openly. He loves traveling, and actually, and I am not kidding, there is a good chance that wherever you are heading next - he can recommend a place to visit as he has been there before (haha) - try it out the next time you book your photoshoot with us! ''

He said about her:
'' Mirka is a kind person who loves to support those in need and hates seeing injustice in the world and stands up to it. She enjoys talking about life and its mysterious sides (especially with an evening glass of Rioja, haha). She is an artistic soul and I like her creativity. She is passionate about interior design and decor, she likes good books - she always has some good ones to recommend. She loves traveling so much that she quit her dream job of an event coordinator to travel across Europe (to meet me - haha). ''
