Intrepid Travel is expanding its menu in 2018 to offer food adventures in more than 25 countries including two new foodie tours in the Middle East.

The new Real Food Adventures brochure offers travellers the ability to eat their heart out across Europe, Asia, the Americas, the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East, with more than 30 itineraries available.

Intrepid will offer its first dedicated food trips to Iran and Jordan in 2018. The 10-day Iran itinerary runs from Tehran and visits Shiraz, Esfahan and Yazd from May to November 2018. Travellers will sample Persian cuisine such as street kebabs and dine in a local family’s home.

Intrepid Travel regional director Brett Mitchell said the tour operator was keen to show travellers why Iran, Jordan and Israel should be on their radar as emerging foodie hotspots.

“There’s something great about discovering a culture through its local cuisine, whether that might be eating a felafel on the streets of Amman or learning how to use the desert of Wadi Rum to roast Bedouin feasts underground,” he said.

Intrepid will also offer foodie trips to South Korea, India, Japan, Peru and will launch an epic 101-day gastronomic adventure across nine countries.
