    I love food tours and glad I’m not alone with travelling to a destination for the cuisine. Cheers for this Article!

    I think a food tour would be so much fun, but it is smart to consider any allergies or aversions you have towards any food. That way you don’t just consider the location, but the food there as well. If you would love to travel to Mexico but can’t stand the food there, it may not be the best location to pick as a food tour.

      Thanks Rosie, definitely a good idea to think about allergies or dietary restrictions when booking a food tour, but in many cases, they can still work with you. And actually, if you’re going to a country where you’re not crazy about the cuisine, sometimes a food tour can show you dishes you never knew about or the same dishes you didn’t like but done much better in their native home. It can give you a better appreciation of the cuisine. I didn’t expect to enjoy the cuisine in Denmark because I imagined it to be heavy on the fish, but I found a food tour in Copenhagen with no fish at all, and the food was great!

    My husband wants to go on a food tour and I want to make sure we pick the best one. I like how you mention that to consider how many stops are listed on the food tour. I don’t want to spend money and not eat food, so I think I’d like the food tour with the most stops and tastings.

      Lots of stops/tastings can be lots of fun, but it’s also good to look at what you’re getting from each stop. A tour with fewer stops might just be providing more food at each stop. Lots to think about, but food tours are so much fun!

    This is an excellent post Ali! I think that food and the local history always go hand in hand. Knowing one gets you closer to the second. I always enjoyed geographical history enriched with food parts, especially in Italy. Oh my, I’m so hungry now!
