One of the best parts about traveling is the opportunity to taste local flavors. All our tours include a welcome and farewell meal served with beer or wine. Breakfast is included daily, while the amount of included lunches and dinners depends on the itinerary. For multi-course meals, we aim to offer at least three meal choices for you to choose from. You can expect each meal experience to be unique, allowing you to enjoy various aspects of the local cuisine.
Our tours always include breakfast served at the hotel. You'll receive a boxed breakfast for any early mornings. Food and menu options vary depending on the destination and hotel. Most breakfasts will be buffet-style, including fruit, yogurt, cold sliced meats, cheese, eggs, toast, coffee, juice, and water at a minimum. Many hotels will also serve bacon or sausage, pancakes, French toast or waffles, cereals, and pastries. This spread is most common in Europe and North America. Other destinations may include offerings that more so resemble the local cuisine.
Included lunches will take place at a local restaurant or at the hotel. You can expect two-course, buffet, or family-style lunches depending on the destination and restaurant. Water and a soft drink are included, and coffee or tea may be served upon request at the conclusion of the meal. Lunches don't include alcohol, aside from the welcome or farewell meal.
Included dinners are held at local restaurants or hotel restaurants. You'll enjoy two to three-course meals, buffets, or family-style dining. On most tours, dinners are served with beer or wine (unless otherwise noted due to country restrictions), or a soft drink. Water is always included.
You can see which meals are included on each day of your tour by viewing your itinerary in your online account or mobile app. If you aren't yet booked on a tour, you can also find this information on each tour's itinerary page on our website.
If a meal isn't included, your Tour Director will be happy to recommend the best nearby restaurants depending on what you're in the mood for. Even if a meal isn't included, it's still common to dine with other members of your group (who will quickly feel more like family), so there's no need to worry about eating alone if you don't want to.
For more details on what you can expect to eat during your tour, refer to the "Getting ready" information in your online account or mobile app. There's a section all about cuisine. If you aren't yet booked on a tour, you can also find this information on each tour's web page in the FAQ section.
