Food tours are becoming a global phenomenon and are only increasing in their popularity all around the world! With such a large amount of people engaging with communities through food, history and guided experiences Lkld Food Tours has added an international favorite entertainment experience to the beautiful city of Lakeland. For those of you new to the idea of a food tour and are wondering what it is the explanation is fun and simple, A food tour involves walking around a neighborhood, going into shops and restaurants to try various foods, and hearing both about the foods themselves and how they fit into the city's culture. Here are 5 reasons why you should try a food tour today!

  1. The guide will take you to locations you might not normally go to so you can try foods that you wouldn’t normally try. This is the adventurous part of a food tour because it is the coolest way to stretch your boundaries. Your palate will be pleased when it partakes in such perfectly picked pabulum. The food tour has more than likely tried many different dishes at the restaurant you are eating and the dish may be adventurous for you but is tried and true for the guide. Trust us, we want you to love what you’re eating.

  2. You will learn a lot from certifiable experts of the place you are in. There is a lot of research that goes into a tour to make sure that there is a lot of little known facts and pieces of history that you might not be able to find anywhere else. It is a time to learn about the origin of the food you are eating, its national significance, the story of the restaurant or even the history of the building it is housed in. There are so many fun things to learn and food tours are a delicious way to do so.

  3. You have the chance to meet new people that could be from almost anywhere. On our first food tour in Lakeland we had a couple Canadians, Lakeland locals and a few other out of towners. You can have people from anywhere in the world hop in on your tour just to learn about Lakeland or even other Lakeland folks hopping on to taste the wonderful food. Even if the tour ends up being just you, there is a chance for you to get acquainted with your guide who has a wonderful story of how they got there.

  4. There is walking involved! Which means you will be exercising throughout the entirety of your tastings. You walk between restaurants, to specific standing spots to take in the architecture and through the streets as your guide takes you on this adventure of food and fun. Some of the new offerings from Lkld Food Tours will be adding some new tours that have more walking so that you end up getting more exercise.

  5. It is super unique. It isn’t often that you get to go on a guided food adventure with new friends learning a bunch of cool facts about the food you are eating and where you are eating.
