The Travel Corporation (TTC) is expanding its culinary travel offerings with a new global partnership with food experience platform VizEat.
VizEat, which was launched in 2014 in Paris, now offers meal-sharing experiences with 22,000 local hosts in 110 countries worldwide.
TTC’s brands, including Insight Vacations, Red Carnation Hotels, Contiki, Trafalgar, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, and Evan Evans, will be able to connect with VizEat hosts, who are trained chefs and home cooks. The hosts will share their meals and insights into their cultures with TTC guests, who will also be able to sample regional specialties and traditional cuisine in unique locations. Travelers can enjoy a pasta-making class in Rome, embark on an interactive market tour in Barcelona, indulge in a wine and cheese tasting party in Paris, or join a Tuscan chef’s table and sample gastronomic delicacies.
Beginning this summer, TTC’s guests will have an opportunity to enjoy these food experiences on selected trips or as optional experiences, with the assistance of their Travel Directors and Tour Managers.
The mobile apps for VizEat are available for download for iOS and Android. Apple selected VizEat in the TOP 3 Apps of 2016 and CEO Tim Cook came for a VizEat lunch in Paris early February.
