What is a food experience?

Surprisingly, we get this question a lot! The answer is simple: it can be a walking tour with stops at local food vendors and restaurants, a cooking class inspired by the history of the city, or even something in between, like a tea tasting!  

Do I have to pay for my own food on the walk or during the cooking class?

No! All of the food included in the description for each class or tour is included in the price.   If you’d like additional food or beverages, that’s on you.

How many people are on a walk?

We have a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 12 per walk.  If you are a solo traveler and really would like a tour, we will do our best to accommodate you! Email us at info@Stretchypantsneeded.com

Do food walks ever get canceled for bad weather?

Rarely! We run tours rain or shine, but if there is flooding or an earthquake we may cancel. If we do cancel on you, you will receive a full refund.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Ideally, yes. Food walks will not run if there are less than two people registered, so it’s best to get tickets in advance.

If you are already booked and your friend wants to join last minute, please arrive 10 minutes early so we can book them at the meet up point.

Tours range from multiple snacks to full meals. For specifics, check out the tour descriptions. For the food walks, we promise at least three tastes per tour.

Do we have to wait in line at these locations?

Rarely. We try to partner with vendors for the best access to each location, but sometimes we do have to wait a few minutes.

Should I tip?

If you enjoyed your experience and would like to leave gratuity, it is appreciated. It is custom in America to tip your host, but if for some reason you can’t, but still enjoyed your experience – leave us a review on TripAdvisor, Viator, Google or Facebook.
