At the age of 18, Diego left his home town of Cordoba to gain international experience, which he did by living and working in more than a dozen cities across Spain and Europe. Cordoba is his home, though, and his wine and food tours explore the history and traditions of the city that he loves. You will almost certainly get a culinary experience like no other when your go on tour with Diego.
Memories for a lifetime
Words wouldn’t do enough justice to the time we spent at Cordoba. Thanks to Diego for going that extra mile to make out tour all-inclusive and at the same time so exclusive, personalised and intimate. From places, to people, to the food – Diego made sure we could experience it all, within a few hours. Totally Unforgettable!!
Best guide ever!
Diego knows what he’s doing. My family and I had and amazing experience in Córdoba with Diego. Besides de traditional tourist attractions, he took us to places we didn’t expect and showed us the beauty of the city in his own passionate way. Definetly worth the tour! Best guide ever!
We were a family with 3 small children. Diego customised the tour to make it work for us, and adapted along the way to take care of the kids requests. He took us to some very unique places off the beaten track, including a private house with a lovely courtyard where the architect owner gave us a private tour of the property. We then went to a tapas bar that only had locals and we would definitely not have found it by ourselves. Diego followed up after the tour, and was very helpful in some personal recommendations for me. Overall strongly recommended.
You MUST take these tours!
Cordoba is a beautiful, historic city and we’ll definitely be going back soon! We spent a few days having Diego take us around and it was awesome. He took us into neighborhoods and down winding streets that we would never have known were there. We ate great food, drank good wine (and beer!), but most of all, we saw the city through a local’s eyes. Diego obviously loves his home and he is just the nicest person. He was welcoming and flexible, always making sure we were getting the experience we wanted. We highly recommend taking any of these tours in Cordoba and getting to know Diego!

My husband and I had the pleasure of exploring Córdoba with Diego from Foodie & Tours: it was a wonderful introduction to this charming Andalusian city! We chose combine history with gastronomic delights, so we signed up for a Mezquita and tapas tour. Diego picked us up from our hotel, and we walked the short distance to the Mezquita. At that point we joined a small group (about 15 people), which was led by a local art historian, Fatima. She gave us a thorough grounding in the layers of history that have shaped the Mezquita and made the building and cultures that created it come to life. She then took us through the old Jewish quarter, pointing out sites of interest and relating more fascinating information.
After that part of our tour, Diego took just the two of us out of the old city and to a private residence in Córdoba where we enjoyed the serenity of a lush garden patio and were treated by our hostess to local beer, some sherry, and cheese and olives. After that, Diego took us to a small tapas bar that was just a bit off the beaten track (so we probably wouldn’t have found it on our own). There we enjoyed more sherry and some delicious Iberian ham, as well as hearty bread, potatoes, and chorizo. We were definitely sated by all the delicious food!
Diego is extremely personable, and we felt lucky to share his company for several hours during our stay. He is passionate about all the attractions of his native city and takes obvious delight in sharing them with visitors. This was a very enriching (not to mention delicious!) experience!
