Several years ago we discovered food tours. I only wish they had existed sooner. The premise is simple – you get to explore a local city or neighborhood with someone who knows it better than you do. We think the best tours offer a unique angle or experience, and provide something we wouldn’t be able to do on our own.
We love food tours so much we started our own food tour business in Marrakech (you should totally check it out if you’re coming to visit!) We also make it a point to take food tours wherever we travel around the world. If you love food tours like we do, or you’re traveling and want to find out which tours we’ve done and written about, you’ve found the right place!
Hope you’re hungry!
In Copenhagen, Denmark there’s more than just brown bread to taste. We were surprised by the variety of foods that call Denmark home. Our favorite on this food tour was smorbrod but we loved the rest too. Going Danish on a Copenhagen Food Tour
Mexico, oh Mexico. On the island of Cozumel you can get beyond the tourist crush to experience real Yucatecan cuisine on this food tour. Come hungry. Feasting on Yucatecán Cuisine in Cozumel
Istanbul is an amazing city with an incredible food story. You will find a mixture of foods and flavors from around the world. This is the longest food tour we’ve ever done (over 6 hours) and it was worth every single minute. Falling for the Best Food in Istanbul
Would you do a food tour that was all dessert? Of course you would! There’s so much diversity in Istanbul it’s easy to run a food tour that’s just based on the sweet stuff. Be prepared to walk it all off so you won’t feel guilty. Beyond Baklava: A Sweet Istanbul Food Tour
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Thailand is full of great food but navigating the outdoor markets can be a nightmare especially when you aren’t sure what anything is! In Chiang Mai we took a great street food tour with our kids. It was fantastic! A Delicious Chiang Mai Food Tour
New Orleans, LA USA
It may just be the food capital of the United States, and we fell head over heels in love with it! New Orleans is somewhere you have to visit at least once and taking a food tour is a good way to ensure you get the chance to try all the local specialties. Eating in the Big Easy

Seville, Spain is one of our favorite cities. It’s also heaven for foodies. Devour Seville showed us the ropes on their part food part history tour.
In Seville, this food tour with Not Just a Tourist let us learn about tapas in southern Spain. We ate great while avoiding pork and wine.
The very first food tour I took was in Madrid during a long layover. It was this introduction that made me fall in love with the idea of having our own food tour and making sure food tours were a part of all our travels going forward! 22 Hours in Madrid
Granada is not only home to the Alhambra but a pretty good food scene. This laid back food tour showed us around and introduced us to our favorite Spanish drink – mosto!
