Zurich is different. Once you arrive there, you will feel things happening at a different pace. Food tours are the perfect way to tour this beautiful city which is known for its cleanliness and nice architecture. A food tour is a specialty tour designed to introduce visitors and tourists to Zurich’s main food staples, such as the popular and delicious cheese fondue, or the Rösti national dish. Food tours vary by length, but will generally escort their participants throughout a few restaurants and spots in the city. A local guide will explain about the history of Zurich and the foods, and will unveil parts of the city known only to the locals.

Why is a food tour the right thing for you?
When going on a business trip or a romantic vacation, we often try to incorporate as many attractions as possible, in a relatively small window of time. This leads to us missing the interesting cultural highlights of the places we’re visiting, and being swept up in the popular tourist attractions in the area. Another thing we tend to ignore on short visits abroad is the local cuisine. In the fast-paced world we live in, we’ve gotten used to entering global fast food shops instead of getting to know the local cuisine.
