    This is ALWAYS a concern of mine as I am vegetarian. I can’t say I’ve been on a real food tour, but I did go on a chocolate tour once and ate ALL of the chocolate 🙂

      Mmmm chocolate tours are fun! Yep, you can still take a food tour as a vegetarian, just depends on the focus of the tour. If it’s meat-heavy, probably not, but always contact the company ahead of time and ask.

    I have celiac disease and didn’t think I could ever consider a food tour. I’m really excited that there are options!

      Yes! Obviously not all food tours will work, but it’s always worth contacting the company and asking. Restaurants are becoming much more aware of dietary restrictions, so food tours can often make changes for you.

    You seem to be the go-to girl for food tours, Ali. We’ve avoided them because we only eat certain meats and feel better when we avoid eating grains but after reading your article, perhaps we should reconsider. Now that you’ve mentioned that they try to accommodate, I think I’ve seen a few food tours ask about restrictions on their booking form.

      You should try a food tour! I bet they wouldn’t have a problem with “don’t eat pork” or whatever meat it is, as long as the tour isn’t heavily based around that meat. As for the grains, that might be a little more tricky, but you could tell them no gluten and then maybe work around the non-gluten grains. Again, it all depends on the tour itself, what kinds of food they have for you to try.
