The Discovery Experience
Savor the flavors of your destination
The essence of a culture is often best revealed on its menus. So we've carefully selected flavorful experiences that connect you to local culinary traditions.
Share a meal with a local family. More than a home-prepared meal, you'll get an intimate glimpse into daily life, whether its with an Indian family in Agra, a Fez family in Morocco or an Israeli family in a Druze village.
Stroll the outdoor markets. A culture's true colors and textures are found at its outdoor markets, teeming with locals in search of fresh-from-the-earth ingredients. From Cambodian jackfruit to the countless variety of Peruvian potatoes to Moroccan dates, what's on sale opens a window to culinary tradition. Enjoy a visit to one of Chiang Mai's bustling food markets or walk the lanes of the hectic Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.
Enjoy authentic local food & drink. Our daily menu always includes Western options. But what is travel without sampling the local cuisine, such as China's Szechuan Hot Pot, a traditionally prepared hangi dinner in New Zealand, the fresh seafood on the Dalmatian coast, or the vibrant dishes of Thailand. We will even sample the delicious wines of Italy, France, Spain & South Africa!
