our philosophy

Our focus is on running our food tours and events only for private groups - which ensures all our tours are customized with the needs of your group in mind.

We focus on the quality, not the quantity of our tours and events, to make sure that every activity you do with us is carefully developed and executed.


We pay respect to the local communities in which we do business, in order to provide guests with an authentic experience at the area they visit while on tour.

Our goal is to offer an in-depth view of the city's culture, through its food and drink, in a way that enables your group to experience it in the best and most genuine way possible.
