That is what food or culinary tourism is. It’s a chance to experience local food in a completely authentic way and learn more about what makes the destination unique.

Try a City Food Tour
One of our favorite ways to experience a city’s food for the first time is on a food tour. If you travel for food, there are typically so many regional foods that you’ll want to try while you’re in a particular destination. A food tour ensures you’ll find them all, because it’s organized by locals who want to share their city’s wonderful food with you.
We’ve been on many food tours around the world. Check out the best ones here.
