It is the ultimate walking food tour for all those foodies who want to avoid the city center and touristy areas and get to know the locals, their food and their stories.
Born and raised in a traditional neighbourhood of Barcelona I grew up helping my family’s tapas restaurant cooking and listening to people’s stories. Those great stories of people’s travels around the world opened my mind and, after studying tourism and tour guiding, I decided to go explore the world, its cultures, history, food and most importantly its people. After 9 years guiding and travelling the world I came back home to my childhood neighbourhood, to create a unique alternative gastronomical experience, offering curious travellers the chance to connect with real Barcelona at a deeper level, by spending time with locals, eating traditional catalan specialities at local venues, visiting the local establishments and learning history of our neighbourhood and its people.
