The Travel Corporation (TTC), which is behind Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, Busabout and Evans Evans, has announced a partnership with food experience platform VizEat.
The app will link the brands’ customers to 22,000 hosts in 110 countries, which include trained chefs and home cooks to provide authentic local cuisine in destinations.
It was launched in Paris in 2014 and claims to be the world’s most popular food sharing platform.
Activities include a pasta making class in Rome, go on an interactive market tour in Barcelona, sample wine and cheese at a tasting party in Paris or join a Tuscan chef’s table.
“Our partnership with VizEat will enable our guests from across our 30+ TTC travel brands to discover amazing and fun culinary experiences in each destination which we visit while also interacting with the local people and creating unforgettable memories,” said Brett Tollman, chief executive of The Travel Corporation.
“We also share similar values by offering experiential activities and meeting like-minded travellers from around the world.”
Beginning this summer, TTC’s guests will have an opportunity to try these food experiences on selected trips or as optional extras.
“We’re thrilled to announce this global partnership with TTC and this marks a great opportunity for more travellers worldwide the chance to uncover immersive culinary experiences with locals wherever they go,” said Jean-Michel Petit, Chief Executive Officer of VizEat.
“It’s a great match for both of us: TTC’s family of brands plans the most memorable experiences for their clients and VizEat is aligned in this search for unforgettable and authentic moments.”
