Cooking Holidays and Food Experiences
Combine culture with cooking
One of the best things about travelling to exotic destinations is that you get to experience a new culture – and that means delicious new food. At On The Go Tours, we offer a dedicated cooking tour in Jordan, where you can master traditional local dishes with the help of expert local chefs. Passengers on our Jordan On The Menu tour will still get to take in all the country has to offer, from Petra to the Dead Sea.
As well as our dedicated cooking tours, our range of group tour itineraries across the world include foodie experiences, cooking demonstrations and food tasting. From trying a traditional Berber meal in Morocco, to cooking lunch in rural Vietnam and making cocktails in Peru, our tours are packed with mouth-watering experiences. Travellers in Japan can create delicious sushi and passengers to Iceland can taste the local delicacy of fermented shark, if you’re feeling brave. Wherever you travel with On The Go, you’re sure to enjoy delicious local food and immerse yourself in the culture of the destination you visit. Take a look below at some of our recommended tours for foodies.
