Intrepid Food Adventures
Intrepid is one of the pioneers in small group travel. Our tours are designed to get you under a country’s skin from the get go: a small group, an expert local leader and a big wide world to explore. Recently we put two and two together and started running dedicated food trips (think one part adventure, two parts delicious). They’re basically food-centric itineraries that focus on street-fare, regional cuisine and good old-fashioned home cooking.

Real Food Adventure - Vietnam , December 2016
Very well organized trip, but don't expect too much time on your own to explore the country and meet locals alongside the itinerary. Even the homestay had hotel standard. Cooking classes are excellent! Overall I highly recommend this trip to everyone who likes good food.

Real Food Adventure - Mexico, October 2016
Simply wonderful! If you want a tour that encompasses food, history and culture, this is it! A very well thought out tour with some excellent inclusions, including the majority of meals and a flight back to Mexico city. Our tour guide Mario was extremely helpful. Make sure you spend some extra time in Mexico city either before or after because there is so much to see there too.

Great guide + Very well organized tour which highlights all kinds of Vietnamese food. We seriously did not run out of food. I don't think I ever ate so much in my life! Met some really cool people on this tour too

Expect to eat the local way. We didn’t call these trips ‘food adventures’ for nothing. Forget Michelin stars and 20-course degustations – our local leaders will help you get behind the scenes of a local food culture, track down the freshest street food, discover the most authentic local restaurants and reveal the traditions and techniques that make these destinations so deliciously mouth-watering. From lining up with locals for fresh tortillas in a Mexican market to hopping between Logrono’s thriving tapas bars, they’ll show you local food from the perspective of those who eat it every day.
All of our food trips have been designed with one thing in mind – experiencing the best local food on the planet. But we all know that there’s much more to food than just eating it – so whether it’s browsing markets for fresh produce, sizzling up a storm in a cooking class or meeting a local street-food legend, we’ve stuffed your plate to the brim. And once you’ve devoured all the local food you can handle, we’ve made sure our Food Adventures are rolled up into a burrito with the lot so you won’t miss out on the iconic sights and authentic cultural experiences that are found on all our Intrepid trips.
Like all Intrepid itineraries, we’ve made sure our food trips provide free time between activities, allowing you to digest a destination either with your group or on your own. You might spend the morning exploring a buzzing local market with your guide and cooking a delicious local dish with your group before heading off on your own to wander the marbled halls of a museum or cycling through ancient alleys. We’ve also left plenty of mealtimes free of organised activities, which gives you the flexibility to ‘get your gourmet on’ at a fine dining restaurant or simply seek out your own ‘real food’ adventure. Needless to say, your leader will be there every step of the way with suggestions and recommendations.
Sometimes, the best way to eat like a local is to travel like one too. That could mean jumping on a boat to discover the flavours of the Mekong Delta, riding the Tokyo subway to a sake bar or rattling along in a rickshaw in pursuit of Agra’s finest chaats. We love to use local transport because it gives us a chance to experience everyday local life from a new perspective.
Whether you’re spending the night in an ancient fortress or in the home of a local family, most of our trips include a memorable overnight stay that is designed to make your trip extra memorable. When we do choose to use hotels, all of our accommodation options are in our Original style, which means a mix of 2-3 star establishments that are safe, clean and comfortable.
It goes without saying that by eating in local restaurants, buying things from street-side sellers and using local guides, our trips help support local economies. But that’s just the start of it. Many of our itineraries incorporate visits to community projects and we offer carbon offsetting on all of our food trips. Above all, we are committed to a style of travel that is culturally, environmentally and socially responsible.
