An evening with Marrakech Food Tours introduced us to so much traditional Moroccan food that we wouldn’t have found without help.

We have long held the belief that the single best way to experience a culture is to see it through its cuisine. The gateway to any culture is through its food. Whether that is a calorie-packed Chicago deep dish pizza, a savory langos in Budapest, or a hearty meat pie in London, all good things can come through a rich culinary exploration.
We’ve found the best way to engage in this culinary tourism is through food tours. These progressive dining experiences usually visit four to six restaurants and food markets, while layering in cultural and historical information. We’ve found its best to do a food tour on your very first day in a city as an overview. Then you can go back and explore your favorites in detail. We’ve done this from Chicago to Budapest and Madrid to New York City. Here are the best of the world’s food tours.
Most advice about Athens says that you can everything in this enormously historic city in one day. While that may get you the highest of the highlights, there’s more to Athens than that.
When we visit a new place, we’re just as excited (sometimes moreso) to try new food as we are to see the sites. And when that food includes cheeses, pastries, desserts, and other local specialties, we know it’s going to be a great trip.
Our expectations of food in Maryland are high, and we were not disappointed on our food tour of charming St. Michaels, Maryland, on the state’s eastern shore.
A social event, hopping from bar to bar, eating the best a place has to offer, and laughing along the way—this is tapas in Madrid.
“If you measure, it doesn’t taste good.” And that’s how our Macedonian cooking class started. From there, all kinds of goodness followed.
For our second visit to Budapest, we got to dig a little deeper on a progressive dinner walk. After all, why have dinner at one place when you can have it at five?
There’s just something special and cozy about cooking with someone’s grandmother in a real apartment in Rome. Her training ground was cooking with her mother and grandmother and her goal was loving her family with food.
The two things that come to mind when I think if Chicago are “the bean” and pizza. And despite the name, you can’t actually eat the bean, which makes pizza the perfect focus of a food tour in Chicago.
Take a cruise. Take a stroll. Take a shot. Take a photo. There are so many fun things to do in Amsterdam.
