    Those are definitely great tips for going on a food tour. When I went to Barcelona in 2017, I went on a food tour. One of my mistakes was that I didn’t have enough water. Before my food tour, I had visited Parc Guell and was drinking from my large water bottle. We went to many places to eat, and not all of them provided water. By the time we went to our last stop (a pastry restaurant), I was parched from the rich desserts. So I definitely agree that you’ll need lots of water on your food tour.

    Another tip, would be to do the food tour in the beginning of your trip. This way, you can get an idea of places to eat during the remainder of your trip. My food tour provided a list of the restaurants we visited that day, and our tour guide also suggested other places to go in other neighborhoods.

      Thanks Britt! That’s strange that some of the restaurants didn’t even give you water, seems like a simple thing to provide. And yes, I totally agree, it’s best to book your food tour for the beginning of your trip since many of them will give you a guide to restaurants in the city or at least have a few suggestions. Plus the tour can give you more confidence in ordering things you might not have tried otherwise.

    […] food I didn’t know about. There wasn’t quite as much food as I’m used to on food tours; in fact this might have been the first food tour I completed without feeling like my pants were […]

    And…expect your waistline to grow if the food tour is any good, I still remember the food tours you did in Italy. They were amazing.

    There may also be some considerations necessary for disabled people or people with mobility issues. I think those would be best taken up with the food tour operator before considering booking. I am thinking in particular if there is a lot of standing or walking involved or work in confined spaces – this can become an issue for those with a disability or mobility issues.

      Ha! Exactly!

      Yes, you definitely have to talk to the company ahead of time if you have disabilities or mobility issues. The tours involve a bit of walking, and depending on the restaurants, there could be stairs. I’m working on a post about going on food tours with dietary restrictions, but I should add something about this as well. Thanks for reminding me, Matthew!

        No problems at all. It’s what I am here for and besides those would be the exact same issues I would face when looking at doing a food tour or tour of any sort for that matter 🙂
