“Easy to set up, a great time for a big group”
“I was tasked to book an activity for our team while they were traveling. Alessia made it feel like I didn’t have to do anything. We had a short discussion about food preferences and dietary restrictions, and she just took it from there.
Unfortunately, I was not present, but I got tons of feedback from the team about how much fun and how engaging the tour was. One team member was local, and suggested a place for dessert and Alessia was able to incorporate it into the tour even though it was already set.
Would 100% recommend, heard only good things and have only good things to say!”

Why Choose Beyond the Plate Food Tours?
Quality over quantity. We don’t throw you into a bunch of different locations. We minimize our locations down to 4-5 so you get a quality, not-rushed experience.
Get Your Drink On
Did we mention drinks? An average public tour includes 2-3 drink pairings, and an average private tour includes 3-4. All food and select drinks are included. We recommend you come hungry. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated as long as we know in advance.
Almost all tastings are sit-down and comfortable. We spend 30-35 minutes at each location, taking the time to enjoy our tastings.
There’s a lot on the menu with our private food tours! The whole experience is built into the quote, including all food and beverage offerings. Our tours are led by our expert foodie locals, and you’ll meet and greet with the restaurants’ chefs and owners.
