Food Travel With All the Right Ingredients
WANDER THROUGH VIBRANT MARKETS
No matter what food vacation you take with us, you’ll visit local markets, always colorful, bustling and packed with atmosphere. For the culinary traveler, it’s an instant, hands-on way to access a destination’s culture. Mingle with villagers as you people-watch, sample local delicacies, and even test out your language skills.
DISCOVER THE SOURCE OF LOCAL FOODS
With Access Culinary Trips, it’s just as much about discovery as it is about destination. Our food tours are designed to connect you with the local cuisine, from soil to serving and from grape to glass. Travel like an insider to flourishing farms and verdant vineyards. Soak up the passion of the local producers and chefs, and taste for yourself the heart and soul that goes into producing the regional food and wine.
COOK WITH WORLD-CLASS CHEFS
On our award-winning food vacations, our highly skilled and passionate chefs add an authentic, person-to-person element. Often, these chefs grew up learning to cook at their grandmother’s knee, and they are happy to share their culinary expertise and traditions that have been handed down through generations. Not only will they teach you to cook spectacular meals, but they’ll also share their secrets and stories about what foods were used for special family holidays and what herbs had medicinal value. They are dedicated to giving top quality, authentic food tours filled with laughter, friendship and memories to last a lifetime.
EAT, SAVOR, REPEAT
Eating utilizes all five senses. Not only do we taste our food, we also touch it, smell it, devour it with our eyes and listen to it sizzle in the pan. Which is why we carefully select each and every culinary venue on our food vacations – from authentic local restaurants to private farms, kitchens and vineyards. We pride ourselves on the local expertise, knowledge and vast network of connections that bring our food tours to life. While we have been honored with many accolades and recognition from top travel writers and publications, the most important recognition comes from our valued guests, who return to us again and again.
