Foodie Tours

By Viator, February 2011

Foodie Tours are tailor made for chocolate connoisseurs, wine buffs and all lovers of fine food. Often combining a walking tour with a local expert, foodie tours take you to markets and food shops in the world’s gourmet capitals like Paris and Rome.

In Madrid, foodie tours focus on the local specialty, tapas. The night-time walking tour takes you to bars and restaurants to meet the locals and experience Madrid’s bar-hopping nightlife. Local flavors to try include chorizo sausage, Galician octopus and cider from Asturias.

A Brussels foodie tour will take you to meet the city’s chefs, and taste local gourmet treats like waffles, frites and mussels.

Of course Paris is the home of gourmet dining. A chocolate and pastry tour combines the two best-loved foods of all, with visits to fine patisseries and bonbon shops revealing the artistry behind the confections. Or you could focus on foie gras, wine and cheese with a visit to a specialty fromagerie on the Left Bank.

Foodie tours are small group tours, with numbers often restricted to a maximum of eight. Feel free to pump your local tour guide for neighborhood dining tips, background information on local traditions and specialties, translation and suggestions.

For other ways to experience local cuisine and traditions, try taking a cooking lesson in a private kitchen in Rome, a Deep South cooking class in New Orleans, Tuscan dinner cooking class in Florence, or a sake tasting and cooking class in Kyoto.

Wine-tasting tours are often paired with local food and are a specialty of the world’s wine capitals like Paris, Milan, Florence, Rome, Chianti, Bordeaux, Napa and the Yarra Valley.
