Why you should join on a culinary trip

Explore authentic cuisines

Foodies can research a destination as thoroughly as possible. But this won’t necessarily result in a satisfying culinary experience. This is especially so for locations where the language is a challenge or where specific delicacies are sought after. That’s when you really need to call in the experts: the food tour guides. Read on to find out why you should try a food tour during your upcoming vacation.

 

A food vacation enables you to explore new gastronomic delights at their places of origin. Your local foodie guide will introduce you to the most authentic dishes in the city to ensure you enjoy the best experience. You will explore the best eateries and also have the chance to interact with locals. Always go hungry on a food tour as you will be tasting the best local dishes and food products.

Learn from local experts

Your host is a local chef or foodie guide who will explain everything in detail and answer all your questions. Your local insider will share their knowledge on the destination, the dishes you sample, their ingredients, preparation and culinary traditions. They will entertain you with stories only a local would know, and which you can’t find in a guide book. Because most food tours are limited to small groups, you get to enjoy an intimate experience with more attention from your guide.
