Behind Eye On Food Tours are two people who fell madly in love with Barcelona on their first visit to this incredible city more than two years ago.
Adrian, the owner of the company, is a devoted foodie, history buff and an adventurer with a passion for traveling and exploring different places whenever he feels the impulse. He has been fortunate to live and work in some amazing cities around the world such as Sydney, Buenos Aires, Panama City, Los Angeles, Washington DC and many more.
Carolina, otherwise known as ‘Adrian’s little helper,’ is in charge of everything that happens behind the scenes. With a very curious mind, she enjoys discovering new places, activities, aromas and flavors meanwhile immersing herself in the culture of each new country she has the opportunity to inhabit.
They have both worked in the food, wellness and sales industries for several years, learning some of the key ingredients on how to offer a great customer experience.
Their journey into the culinary scene of Barcelona began when they started spending time researching and tasting the most delicious, traditional food available in the historic neighborhoods of Barcelona. They found themselves appreciating the ancestral heritage of this world-renowned city in search of their next locale, eager to get another taste of the regional cuisine. Their countless and unforgettable experiences here have all added to the profound admiration that they’ve always felt for Catalan and Spanish art and history, coming together to create an unsurpassed travel experience that has turned into a lifestyle.
One of the main reasons they decided to open their food tour business was to share all of their invaluable experiences and love for authentic Spanish and Catalan cuisine with food lovers like you. They enjoy meeting like-minded individuals, people who truly appreciate traditional cuisine and quality. As people that love what they do, it is their main goal to make you feel at home. Our tours will engage you with all of your senses, and give you experiences that you will never forget.
There will be no tourist traps on any of our experiences; neither selfie sticks, frozen paella or the stereotyped sangria – only some of the best local food and drinks that Barcelona has to offer.
It is our mission to help build community by supporting local restaurants, bakeries, markets and shops. We believe that this is important in order to keep the culture alive, and the cuisine authentic and delicious. Eye On Food Tours is not only about us, but also the many people featured at our tasting locations, which are as excited as we are to introduce you to all of the specialties that Catalonia has to offer!
For all these reasons and more, we are truly proud to say that we chose Barcelona as our home, and it will be a pleasure to have you as our guests and show you around the city that made us fall in love at first taste!
