Our working relationship with Devour Tours
We often recommend Devour’s services to our clients and can even include them in your total package, taking care of all the payment and logistics for you. We love that they offer specialized family-friendly tours as well!
The tours are based on (each place)’s rich history and culinary culture, but the most important element is the people – the guides, the local proprietors and suppliers that make the tours unique, enriching experiences.
«Lauren (Aloise, Devour’s co-founder) believes that the company’s firm commitment to responsible tourism has been a key ingredient in achieving trust and cooperation with the local partners they reach out to. ‘We only work with small businesses, absolutely no chains!’ she continues, ‘We pay the suppliers the full price for whatever we order from them and our guides are well-compensated for their work.’
When looking for new suppliers, the team does extensive online research followed by scouting trips consisting of endless tasting, evaluating and talking to the shop owners. ‘Whenever possible, we prefer places where the owners are present, as this adds a lot to the experience,’ she says.»
