Local Culinary Experiences

Food bridges divides and brings us together. Breaking bread with new friends is a time-honored tradition the world over, which is why we've integrated premium food and wine experiences into all our Luxury Small Group Journeys. Starting upon arrival at your exclusive Cox & Kings Welcome Event, mix and mingle with new friends as you enjoy a glass of local wine and a delicious dinner, hosted by your local guide or Cox & Kings Tour Director.

You don't need to be a foodie to take part in local cooking classes, often hosted by the world's great culinary experts. Create a traditional tagine in Morocco, sushi in Japan, or dumplings in China. Of course, this experience culminates in a private meal that somehow always tastes better after your efforts in the kitchen.

Perhaps the highlight of your trip will be dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant or similar in a global culinary capital, such as Tokyo or Lima. No need to call months in advance for a reservation - Cox & Kings' local connections ensure there's always a table ready for your arrival.

Or maybe something a bit more down-to-earth is more your style. Many of our journeys offer opportunities to meet and eat with a local family in their home. From India to Peru, and beyond, there are friendly locals just waiting to connect with you to show-off their culinary delights and way of life.

As the end of your trip draws near, look forward to a final chance to dine with your group at our Signature Celebration Dinner. Once again, your local guide or Tour Director will host you meal to toast the culmination of your amazing journey.
