11 Reasons to Take a Food Tour
Yesterday was the first day of the eleventh month of the year. When I think back to last year at this time, we had just entertained our 11,000th tour guest. How quickly things change as we struggle through 2020 like so many other businesses.
Still, it’s humbling to think that so many people have chosen to spend a piece of their time with us. Even now, as COVID-19 lurks with uncertainty, it’s reassuring to know that people still dream, plan, and look forward to in-person experiences. New friends and shared conversations taught us a lot about ourselves during the last 8 years. This year, our lessons were different as we learned how to adapt, persevere, and trudge on. We’re grateful for each and every one of you, even more so during these challenging times.
While thinking about how many people we’ve touched with our tours, I started to think about what really motivates someone to book a tour, especially today. I began to make a list. Before I knew it, I had 11 reasons to take a food tour, now or in the future. These reasons are as real today as they were last year.
