Next stop: The world!
In 2008, we began offering walking culinary tours in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that tell the story of Milwaukee’s German, Italian, Polish and Irish immigrants. With more than 20 different tour routes and more than 15,000 attendees a year in Milwaukee, we quickly grew a fanbase of tour attendees that kept asking, “Can we travel with you?” Hence began what we call Travel Deliciously.
Our first internationally offered trips included excursions to Poland and Cuba. Domestically we visited Chicago, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and the Real Housewives of Amish Country in Indiana. As we’ve grown, so has the list of destinations we now offer to our attendees. Not only do we offer these trips for individual travelers, but on a private basis for other organizations such as our fellow food tour operators in other cities and Park and Recreation departments.
As we build itineraries, food is at the core of what we offer to our guests. We pride ourselves on offering itineraries that allow our travelers to see the bucket list sights, but also delve into the culture through its cuisine and food experiences. We offer intimate encounters, small groups, and delicious excursions. Our itineraries offer activities such as cooking and baking classes, a chance to catch dinner with local fishermen, and the opportunity to travel with local chefs. This is how we Travel Deliciously, and we invite you to do the same.
Woman-owned, women led.
Thirteen years of hands-on learning combined with advice from a slate of industry mentors has allowed our founder to not only grow her business but serve as a speaker on the topic of culinary tourism and group travel.
Today, the Travel Deliciously vision has grown to include a full-time team of Destination Specialists and countless partners, escorts and mentors around the world that help us implement bucket list travel experiences.
We can’t wait to show YOU the world! Our teammates are avid travelers and lucky enough to have experienced fabulous destinations. We haven’t been everywhere, but the world is on our list and you best believe that we will make sure it is unique and delicious too!
Why Travel Deliciously?
Curated & Crafted Itineraries
Before the days of TripAdvisor and Yelp, we stumbled upon a restaurant overlooking the sea in Positano, Italy early in our traveling years. We watched as the restaurant owner visited with each dinner table declaring repeatedly, “Donne Felici,” (Happy Women) as he topped off the wine glass of every honeymooner in the restaurant. It was a memorable experience that more than two decades later we remember fondly. It is that exact feeling that we strive to create in every trip we offer today.
Most of our trips offer pricing with airfare excluded. This is done purposefully. Our customers span the country and typically choose to meet us in their chosen destination to begin the delicious adventure with the group. If a customer isn’t comfortable making their own airline arrangements, we are absolutely available to provide travel assistance from start to finish.
Travel Deliciously with us on one-of-a-kind excursions that we have created or curated for our travelers. We invite you to join us as we delve into the rich history, delicious cuisine, and unrivaled bucket list sights of destinations across the globe.
