Why take a Food & Cultural Tour - part 2
5. Um...The Food!
Food tours essentially unwrap (or uncork!) a region by offering access to its local ingredients. It's that authentic Taste of Place that the Culinary Tourism Alliance has coined so beautifully. And to be brutally honest - if not a bit biased - we think Guelph does it best. Food - good, fresh, local food - comes naturally to us. Our agricultural roots are a large part of our history; indeed the very idea behind the founding of this town. And they are roots that we continue nurture. So, our deliciousness is not only a matter of Guelph heritage and lore, it's a tasty, tasty fact.
6. Conviviality : relating to, occupied with, or fond of feasting, drinking, and good company -- a convivial host or gathering.
A mouthful of a word that we rarely use but the experience of conviviality is always on the tip of our tongues. Sharing food is something we do all over the world, and with Taste DeTours, there always seems to be much delight in the feasting. Plus, you never know, you might just make a few new friends along the way. You'll definitely enjoy your appetite being catered to and your tastebuds being piqued... just buy your ticket and we take care of all else after that.
7. Take pride in supporting local
Most of our partner vendors are fiercely local and independent businesses. Many are family run. They are the heart and soul of our downtown core. When you go on a food tour you get a chance to learn their stories -- what got them inspired and what keeps them dedicated to the flavour of the town.
