Why should I do it?

Since the start of the Cambridge Food Tour in 2012, we have hosted local and international schools and Cambridge University on food tours in Cambridge. This School Food Tour is an example of what we can offer, but our expertise lies in creating unique Food Tours including your requirements. They could include local breweries, presentations at restaurants or businesses outside Cambridge.

What they say

We approached Gerla from Cambridge Food Tours to organise a corporate event for us. We have recently released ‘The Cambridgeshire Cook Book’ which is all about the best food in the county and with Gerla being so passionate about the local food scene I knew she would be the ideal person to involve in the launch party. We gave her a brief and within a couple of weeks, she brought it to life.

What will be served up?

Let us surprises you with the booming local food scene of Cambridge. Small eateries, fantastic deli’s, an array of internal offering on the local market and delicious home-made gelato. Spend a couple of hours on a Private Food Walking Tour with our expert foodie guides exploring one of the oldest university towns in England uncovering the food delights it has on offer and indulge in some of the best products at independent businesses, meet the people behind these successful enterprises and listen to their stories.

This School Food Tour is a Private Food Walking tour only so we can adapt the tastings and the duration according to your requirements.

Join us on a Food Walking Tour with your budding chefs or food enthusiasts and we’ll promise, that they will come away inspired and wanting to recreate these delights back at home!
