Culinary Adventures Await
on Explorations

Local cuisine is so much more than taste and texture. It’s about the experience and ambiance served up alongside a mouthwatering meal. With Explorations, you’ll do more than eat, you’ll dive right into the local culture and embark on a culinary adventure or two.

Cook and dine in local homes. Roll up your sleeves for a hands-on cooking class. Hop from vendor to vendor on a street food tour. Head off the tourist map and dine where the locals go. This is how you get a true taste of a destination, and Explorations serves it all up on a platter.
