About the Tours
Taste Antigua was founded in August 2014 and we are proud to be the original food tours of Antigua. We are grateful for the chance to share with you our discoveries and help spread the word on the amazing culinary treasures that can be found on almost every street in the colonial city of Antigua. Formerly known as "Antigua Street Food Tour," Taste Antigua has expanded to offer our clients new tours and new opportunities to experience the food scene in Antigua. We are constantly looking for ways to bring the flavors of Guatemalan food into the lives of each person passing through. We look forward to meeting each and every one of you on the tour and hope to provide you with a unique learning experience; and most of all, one that you will never forget.
About the Founder
Hailing from Texas, Arianna moved to Antigua, Guatemala in June 2013. After finishing her Master’s degree in International Development, she focused her sights on finding a way to give back to the community. While exploring ideas, Arianna lived off street food for 6 months. She quickly realized that not enough tourists had the opportunity or knowledge to explore this side of Guatemala. Having fond memories of participating in her first food tour experience in Hanoi, Vietnam, Arianna wanted to provide travelers with the same opportunity and joy she experienced in Vietnam. Many tourists do not have the luxury of 6 months of food research, so she quickly went to setting up a food tour that people could enjoy, learn from, and dive deeper into the Guatemalan culture. Today, Arianna enjoys meeting new people from around the world and takes pride in knowing that each vendor is being affected by the traffic the food tour brings them.
Currently, Arianna is working on a cookbook and has several other culinary tours in the works. She loves traveling, photography, soccer, and of course, eating and cooking. When not giving food tours or working, Arianna is probably prepping for dinner parties, or rummaging around the market for unique finds.
