Born in Catalonia, Mireia and Adria both love food. Mireia is a professional sommelier and guide who likes to share her knowledge of Catalan culinary traditions with gourmet travellers; while Adria likes to travel and set up a food tour in Colombia before moving back to Barcelona. After travelling, working for 4 years at a Michelin 4* restaurant and training as a sommelier, Mireia decided to create her own business mixing all her favorite things - people, tourism, guiding, food and wine. She met Adria and since then they haven't looked back. Their customized food, wine, tapas and cava tours will take you beyond the tourist track to savor the unique tastes and textures of Catalonia. Mireia loves that each day is different, meeting new people and providing tips and advice. Adria enjoys the energy from visitors who bring out the best in him.

Mariela was amazing! There was so much to see and eat. She had a great hideaway at the end for lunch. So through the tour, we nibbled and picked up items for our lunch. At the end, we went to this little place and had a private room for the food and did a wine tasting! She gave just enough history to educate but not enough to over-power you. Her extensive background in tourism and wine shined in this tour. Highly recommend it! Mark, Melanie, Roxanne and George
