Meet Our Spanish Camino Food Tour Guides

 
One of the key reasons why our Food Lover's Spanish Camino tours are so highly rated is because of our affable and knowledgeable guides. In this article, you can read about Anna, Jorge and Andreas, the passionate tour guides of our popular Camino de Santiago food tours, and discover how their past experiences ensure you will have special insights on your walking trip.
 

Anna and Jorge: Food Lover's Spanish Camino

Our May departure is usually led by Anna and Jorge, whose expertise and enthusiasm make them very popular with UTracks travellers.

Anna and Jorge are our Food Lovers Camino Guides Spain
 
Anna was born in Italy where she studied Philosophy at Venice University. She later trained as a chef in Seville. She has lived in Italy and Ireland and for the past 23 years in Spain. Anna has taught cooking since 2010 and was in charge of the kitchen classroom -both for the local public and for visitors- at the Market of Santiago. She's been working with food and wine tourism since 2012.

Jorge studied art history in Santiago and in Madrid. He now writes about food and tourism in magazines such as Vanity Fair, Traveler Magazine or for the newspaper La Vanguardia. He's one of the authors of the food guides CN Traveler and 100 Restaurantes que No te Puedes Perder (100 restaurants You Can't Miss), by La Vanguardia, where he's in charge of Northern Spain. He won the National Food and Wine Journalism Award in 2008. Jorge is from Santiago de Compostela.

In 2010 Anna and Jorge founded Guitián-Mayer, a food consultancy project for restaurants, chefs and other professionals of this sector. One of their business areas is food tourism. They are specialized in Spain and Portugal and they've been leading the May Food Lovers Spanish Camino since 2015.

Our September Food Lover's Spanish Camino departure is usually led by Andreas Holland. Andreas has for many years partnered with UTracks and the World Expeditions Travel Group to bring a special touch to our South America and Spain trips. 
 
Andreas divides his time between Peru, Australia and Spain, where his home in Catalonia has continued his passion for good food. As a keen walker and food lover he has spent many years leading groups of food loving walkers through Spain. With its remarkable cultural history, spectacular scenery and incredible cuisine, from local artisan cheese makers to 2-star Michelin restaurants, it is difficult for him to choose the perfect region but Asturias in north western Spain comes pretty close.

Whether walking along the famous pilgrim’s caminos or along its dramatic Cantabrian coast or simply exploring the cafes and restaurants of its ancient capital Oviedo, Andreas will bring to life the rich culinary traditions we explore.
