Welcome to the world of Eatwith…

Before you start saying “hell no, I’m not a total creep”, hold up and listen to what we’ve got planned. Eatwith is a totally authentic dining experience we’re offering across our European trips. It’s not only delicious, but a great way to connect with locals.

Eatwith is available in over 110 countries (we’re hooking you guys up with it in Europe only, for now) and they’re not just total randoms who are like “yeah, I was making nachos anyway, pop ‘round”. Every single host is properly vetted, oh and they can cook amazing dishes. They’re singles, couples and families who really love cooking and WANT you to eat dinner with them! Think of it as the Airbnb for food.

Imagine traditional Portuguese food (entrée, main and dessert plz) served in someone’s home in the centre of Lisbon, or a Parisian feast made by locals who know where to get the freshest in-season ingredients and can tell you the best gems in their neighbourhood to visit tomorrow. Or you could even dine with the locals on the balmy rooftops of their homes in Seville, Spain.

It’s the perfect way to meet people from the area you’re in and get to know a bit about them, their culture, and the city. Pro tip: most Eatwith experiences are B.Y.O so they’re great for a cheap night out! Seriously, what are you waiting for?! Get eating and take your passion for food to the next level on our In-Depth Explorer trips!
