Culinary Group Tours

Taste the world on your next food group tour

For those among us that are foodies there is no better way to experience the cultures of the world than through the food of a country which is put on the plate. Lingo Tours specializes in custom built and designed culinary group tours. We’ll create your perfect food-related exploration of the world which is custom built to focus on the destinations, countries and experiences that you’re the most interested in.

Perhaps you’re after a multi-country experience, venturing from the fresh seafood seas of the Mediterranean, to the pizza ovens of Napoli and onward through to the beer gardens of Germany – the choice is yours.

Work with our team to design a tour that tantalizes your taste buds and immerses you in the cultures of the world.
