Food Tours in Europe

Any favorite food tours in Europe? I'll be traveling around and still figuring out locations, but food tours are one of my favorite things to do to explore local cuisines and learn about cities.

Welcome to the forum!
You'll get better help once you decide on destinations. Most cities have a number of companies.

Hi, I have taken several. Here’s my most recent ones:

Sevilla, Spain
Nice, France
London - East side, England
Rome, Italy

Since it’s a general location question at this point, most of the larger cities offer food tours. Look at details on them to see the type of cuisine you want. For instance, if you take a food tour in the Puglia region of Italy, it’s going to be seafood.

I've only done one - the night street market tour in Palermo. It was very good.

I love anything that Culinary Backstreets does, they are a notch above, I think. I've enjoyed Eating Europe tours in Rome, Florence and Lisbon, Devour tours in Madrid and Florence. And I've always learned a lot about the place on these tours, not just the food.

I went on a food tour by the company "Devour Tours" in Madrid and thought it was excellent, informative and a lot of fun. The guide took us to locations that we wouldn't have otherwise found during our time in Madrid.

I just looked at their website and they have greatly expanded and now are also in Italy, Portugal, France, Netherlands, Greece, Ireland, UK, and even the United States and Canada.

I’ve done them in Paris, Florence, Barcelona and Santorini. Really enjoyed them all. It’s not just the food either. Guides will talk about history and the culture of the area.

We love doing food tours! My two favorite ones were in Nice and then Reykjavik, Iceland.

I am in the middle of researching ones for Vienna and Paris for our Christmas trip.

It would be better if you have shared the countries you will be visiting.

Guys, I've been wanting to do a food tour to Europe for me and my family for a long time. Which city should I start with?

I agree with Barbara and recommend Culinary Backstreets. Their tours are pricey but worth it. I loved my tour in Naples and would go so far as to plan future travel around their offerings.
