Food Tours

Our standard Food Tours allow guests to learn about an area's culture, history, architecture, local food and drink.

During the fully guided Food Tour, historic and cultural sites are integrated seamlessly with visits to 3-4 popular local establishments, where we enjoy specially created dishes that represent the concept of the restaurant and reflect local taste.

Our Market Tours offer an inside look at some of the most popular and iconic foodie markets in the region. During these interactive tours we stop at popular stalls to meet vendors and to learn about their history while sampling signature products.

Dine Arounds

A more formal version of our standard Food Tour, a Dine Around offers a 6-course progressive meal served at 2-3 acclaimed restaurants.

Dine Arounds are characterized by longer stops at each restaurant, to allow guests the opportunity to get to know one another and network.

Groups are often able to enjoy special hands-on interaction with local chefs and culinary masters that may not be possible during our standard Food Tours.

Our Dine Arounds can be customized to accommodate any budget, ranging from a more casual experience to a high-end VIP affair. Beer and wine pairings can be added are at each restaurant to compliment the dishes.
