If you are thinking about a Eat Like a Local culinary experience please book online in advance so we can be sure to accommodate you. We highly recommend taking our food tours at the beginning of your visit in order to really be able to use the advice and knowledge you gain during the tour. Many of our participants return to the tasting locations various times throughout their stay, or take advantage of the guide’s other recommendations.
Your Food Tour must be reserved in advance, as our tours are quite small and usually sell out ahead of time. To book your tour simply click Book Now. You will pay for the tour ticket at the time of booking. Tickets are non-refundable, as your place is being guaranteed on the tour and there are a very limited number of spots available for each tour.
Our tours are a combination of a tasting tour and cultural walking tour. We will taste a lot of different foods no matter the tour! See our specific tour descriptions for more details. If you are unclear after reading their descriptions, please contact us.
All of our tours include at least one opportunity to taste a wine or alcoholic beverage, and some tours include multiple alcoholic beverages. If you do not drink, alternate beverages will be provided at all stops. As a coke is often double the price a wine or alcohol, we are unable to provide discounts for those who do not drink alcohol.
Certain dietary restrictions can be accommodated but please check with us first. If we cannot accommodate you on a tour, we could likely plan a customized itinerary. Please let us know if anyone in your party has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergy, etc.) when contacting Eat Like a Local. We will do our best to find a suitable option. If you do suffer a food allergy we will require you to sign a waiver at the start of your tour.
