Hello!

I would like to say something but I am unsure how to say it.
Context:
Day1: me and some guy.
I say to the guy "tomorrow, two friends of mine are coming and visiting me".
Day2: me and my friends run accidentally into the guy from the day before.
I say to the guy, pointing to my friends "These are the guys I told you that they were coming and visiting me".

This is about the last sentence. I don't know if it is correct.
other possibilities I thought of:
- "These are the guys I told you that were coming and visiting me"
- "These are the guys I told you were coming and visiting me"

What do you think ? :)

Thanks in advance.

    I would go with your last idea, with a slight modification: "these are the guys I told you were coming to visit me". (Same with your first sentence, "two friends of mine are coming to visit".)

    Hello renardor,

    Your last suggestion is correct. The others are not.

    "These are the guys I told you were coming and visiting me." :tick:

    Better yet: These are the guys I told you were coming to visit me.
