Traveling for food is something we all do, even if we don’t consciously think we are. Food is and always will be an integral part of traveling. You can experience the culture, learn more about the local traditions and get to know the people through food. That is what food or culinary tourism is: a chance to experience local food in a completely authentic way.

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience.” – James Beard


“Food is the ingredient that binds us all together.”


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.
