Sampling the local food and drink is one of the highlights of a touring holiday, whether you’re tucking into tasty street food or dining at one of the world’s finest restaurants. A specialist culinary tour might focus on a particular region, cookery style or product: it could be a wine tour of southern France, a sushi-making class in Tokyo, or a quest to find the best custard tart in Lisbon. Foodie tours will often involve a hands-on experience such as a cookery class, and perhaps a guided tour of a nearby market with a local chef to source fresh ingredients. Eating and drinking is also a very sociable activity, and it’s a great way to get to know both the locals and your fellow travellers on a group tour.
