Thanks, Ariana, for a lovely food tour in central Barcelona. I wanted to learn about Catalan cuisine and specialties and try them as well!

Ariana gave a fantastic tour and was a fun person to spend the day with! She provided us with the significance and history of everything we ate and drank, and she was a wealth of knowledge about the locations we visited. And the food was seriously good. We went back to some of the places she took us multiple times during our stay in Barcelona. I’ll absolutely be recommending this tour to friends who visit. Bonus points for being able to accommodate vegetarians and allergies!
