What it Takes to be a Food Tour Operator

Thinking about a career change? If you like sharing your knowledge of food and culture in your city, a Food Tour Operator might be a smart choice for you.

Listen to our podcast with several food tour operators and find out for yourself.

Food Tours have become incredibly popular in the last handful of years. Besides, getting an inside guide to some of the best restaurants that are representative of a city’s culture, food tours also provide an incredible amount of history for the region you are visiting.

We were able to talk to several food tour operators from both big and small cities. They told us why they began their career as a food tour operator and described the pros and cons that are involved with the industry. We also chatted about what it takes to get up and running and the marketing initiatives involved.
