11 Food Tours Dad would love for Father’s Day from @breakawayexp

Have you ever been on a food tour? I have had the pleasure of attending a few of them around the world. They are a great way to sample local restaurants and local cuisine with a group of people. You have a guide and travel from location to location learning about the area, the restaurant and the food/drinks you will be trying. It is spread out over a few hours and always a fun time.  Whenever I visit a new area I love to go on a food tour. It is a great way to eat like the locals and see the city as a foodie.

This Father’s Day why not gift dad a great gift like an experience from Breakaway Experiences. They have wine tours/tasting, brewery tastings and food tours all across Canada. You can sign dad up with a guest and  have him experience this fun, and unique gift he will always remember. Maybe you can even sign yourself up.

Here are 11 Food Tours your Dad will surely love across Canada, Some are a bit more adventurous than others, but all are sure to release the inner foodie!

  4. Four tours are always such a fun idea. My husband and I love to do them when we travel.

  5. Neha Saini says

    I loved this idea. Its good to gift memories instead of some possessions. I’m planning to organize a trip for Dad-Mom.

  6. There are some very unique and exciting food tours on this list! I like the ones that combine an experience with the food, like the helicopter, boat, or kayak ones. But I must say, as a Sunday brunch lover, that one would be my first pick!

  7. Food tours are so much fun. I would love to go to the Whistler Fine Dining Tour. I am hoping to be in Whistler, BC this winter.

    I am looking for a food tour in my area to try this summer. It looks like it would be a perfect date night.
