Me gustó el tour de inicio a fin! Jordi es una persona que conoce muy bien el lugar y cada detalle! Además, no solo te muestra los lugares y su estilo, sino que explica a detalle y por qué es así el lugar.

Disfrutamos de una tarde muy interesante de la mano de Jordi quien nos compartió los secretos de la ciudad de Curitiba con gran profesionalismo. Fue muy divertido el paseo y aprendimos sobre la riqueza arquitectónica y cultural de esta increíble ciudad de vanguardia. Un placer y seguramente intentaremos hacer otro Tour con Jordi!!!

Very interesting walk, great guide!

With guide Jordi, my wife and I did the city walk about 'history, architecture and urbanism'. From his background as an architect and his interest in the history of the city, he knows a lot about striking things in terms of buildings, the development of the city and the residents. In this way you learn much more about a city than from a tourist booklet.

Jordi speaks English very well. Because of his European background, he can make many comparisons with the history of architecture in Europe and developments in both continents. And with all this: it is a pleasant person, who does not tell a standard story, but really answers to our questions and our interests.

Highly recommended !!

Buen tour, explicación clara, sería importante llegar a los otros lugares de interés como recorrer los parques atravesados por los ríos de Curitiba y un poco más de información de los nuevos arquitectos de la ciudad, dado que Curitiba es un ciudad de gran variedad arquitectonica

Response from Jordi:

Hola Martha muchas gracias por tu colaboración. Tienes razón, los ríos y parques son muy importantes en Curitiba, Lastima que están lejos del centro, este tour necesitas ir con automóvil, y claro eso tiene unos costes económicos. Como guía de turismo también hago ese tour pero cobrando. Y sobre la arquitectura moderna, también tienes razón, También hago ese tour, y por la misma razón es pago, porque el tour que vosotras hicisteis es "Centro Histórico de Curitiba", no hay mucha arquitectura moderna en el centro histórico. Si vais al MON, (Museo Oscar Niemayer)y paseáis por el Centro cívico vais a ver arquitectura moderna Brasileña de la altura de Basilia y Oscar Niemayer.
