It felt like an Anthony Bourdain experience. The right amount of history, culture, food and politics. Cuba is a fascinating place and we were able to see and experience it through a native – the best way to travel.

Our Japan food tour was arranged so that we experienced the highlights of the country as well as its cuisine. Our guide was superb. She exposed us to so much and was very attuned to what each guest was interested in doing. The experience exceeded expectations.
– Adrienne
We normally don’t take tours, and travel on our own, but it did not feel like a tour. It felt like traveling with family. We loved it all, but especially the salsa dancing, the mojito lesson, the walking tours, the party at our guide’s home, and the visit to the organic farm.
– Paul and Shirley
Cuba was everything promised and more!! It was like being invited to spend an afternoon of culture, tapas, and fun with guides Pototo and Azaris, but it lasted 8 days. They brought the itinerary to life that was safe, comfortable and so much fun!! Bravo to the employees of Access Culinary Trips!!!

Morocco really was one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever done. Great food, great people, top location. Had the time of my life! Karim is lots of fun and really did everything to make sure we were 100% happy from the moment we arrived to the moment we (sadly) had to say goodbye.
– Dan
The trip was everything I needed. I took this culinary trip to get away and experience a new culture. All my expectations were exceeded. An absolutely wonderful experience. I was so sorry to leave because I really felt like I was leaving a bunch of good friends. I want to go back!
– Constance
What a trip! I loved the insider-access, especially the visit to our guide’s home! I also loved, loved the farm and lunch in the Viñales Valley. And, our guide was great – professional, informative and had a good sense of humor.
– Jen
Our guide Azaris was incredible! She went above and beyond to make our trip special and memorable. I truly appreciate what she did for us. And I LOVED the food on this culinary tour! Every meal was amazing. Nothing could really improve the trip, it was awesome!
