    What to expect on a food tour

    • Local products

      What's the point of travelling for the food if what you eat isn't the best, freshest, most locally-sourced it can be? On a culinary tour, that much is guaranteed: you'll have the opportunity to learn more about your destination through beautiful local ingredients.
    • Authentic experience

      You may think you're familiar with your destination's cuisine, but until you're eating the food lovingly prepared by locals who've been doing this for their whole lives, you may not truly understand everything that goes into it - and how delicious it can be.
    • In-depth cuisine

      More than just enjoying feasting on the local food, on a culinary tour you'll have the opportunity to gain a new respect for the tradition that goes into making your new favourite dishes, as well as experiencing completely authentic meals - from the food to the atmosphere to the people you enjoy it with.

    • What food can I expect?

      While the exact food will vary from tour to tour, a food tour promises travellers a deep dive into their destination's local cuisine. Come prepared to try new things, eat authentic food that you may be unfamiliar with, and, overall, to eat like a local! Food tours provide a unique experience, ensuring that each traveller comes out of their trip with a new understanding of their destination.
    • I have dietary restrictions, can I still join the tour?

      Of course! You should always check with your tour operator before you book to make sure any dietary restrictions can be met, but, generally speaking, vegetarian travellers should be fine on any food tour, while there are other tours that are specifically tailored for vegan and gluten-free travellers. Research your tour operator before booking to make sure your dietary needs can be met on your food tour!
    • I have food allergies, will the tour be safe for me?

      Travellers with allergies should always make sure to inform their tour operator, as well as their tour leader, of any allergies. Make sure to always travel with necessary medication, and to have a plan in case of emergency - if the worst happens, your travel companions and tour leader should know what to do.
    • How big is the tour group?

      The size of tour group varies depending on the tour. Some groups will be up to 20-30 people, while others are much smaller, including private tours. If you have an ideal group size in mind, check with your tour operator in advance to determine their average group size.
