"Each tour is different, I like to work around the tastes and places of my guests. An amazing tour is not only about eating delicious food. It's about experiencing our culture, and meeting the colorful people of Barcelona that make our city special!"


The two districts we'll explore on this tour represent the evolution of our city over centuries. In fact, they're some of the first districts to become part of what we now call Barcelona.

La Ribera, which is commonly called “Born”, has been linked to both the glory years of Barcelona, but also had its decline. You'll learn how it became one of the symbols of Catalan war for independence (1714) and eventually becoming an important part of the design and culinary trends of Barcelona.

We'll then move closer to the sea in the “Barceloneta” district, which used to be the centre of the old fishing market. You'll try some of the freshest food in the city, as well as meeting the proud locals who love their district and their culture.

About Barcelona Food Tours

Barcelona is a very charming and diverse city that represents the best of Catalunya and Spain as a whole. As Spanish food enthusiasts who all reside in the city, we'll be sharing our local knowledge of the culture and the latest gastronomic trends throughout the tour.


Miguel has travelled and worked in South America as well as studying in France, but he always wanted to return to his roots in Barcelona. The city represents what he loves the most: diversity, people, culture, and history. He'll show you places he himself goes with his friends and family. He's always on the hunt for new shops, flavors, and stories across the city.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
