Culinary or food tourism is the pursuit of unique and memorable eating and drinking experiences, both near and far. There are certain cuisines that stand out as being food for the world.

Taste buds go beyond one ethnic group or nation. Food is a very important element of culture and lifestyle. The art of cooking as well as the styles of eating and drinking often reflect the type of people. No cultural experience is complete without a culinary element. We have tours that offers culinary experience as both a primary as well as a secondary attraction. As Michael Palin puts it, "I am not a good cook, I am not a good artist, but I love art and I love food. So I am the perfect traveler." Join us in our selected culinary journeys.
