We organize group and private hiking and cultural tours for foodies who would also like a genuine experience of the land and the local life.

The Yummy Walker was founded by Luca Panfietti and Marco Fromboli. They met in London in 1997 and following years of extensive travel throughout their careers, they developed this project to share their passion for hiking, food and wine with people from all over the world.

Luca

CEO and Founder

Born in Florence, Luca now lives in Cordoba (Spain). He has also lived in London, New York, Madrid and Granada and felt he could call each place his home. Luca’s international business career took him to all four corners of the earth as he specialized in high end fashion and interior design, but Andalusia is the place where he has settled and built his nest. Passionate about food and wine, Luca is now a sommelier and is a member of various gastronomic associations. He is also an amateur flamenco guitar player.

Languages: Italian, English, Spanish and French.

Marco

Trip Manager and Founder

Born in Florence, Marco currently lives in the beautiful countryside around Lucca (Italy). Following an exciting career in fashion as well as once holding the coveted position of chef on a luxury yacht in the Mediterranean, Marco became an experienced guide who traversed the world and hiked from Thailand through to Latin America. His sensitive soul brings him to design and create handmade ceramics and mosaics at his home studio.

Languages: Italian, English and Spanish.
