Holland America Adds Additional FOOD & WINE EXC Tours

Due to popular demand Holland announced that they are adding 20 new immersive culinary-themed FOOD & WINE EXC Tours (shore excursions). Developed in partnership with FOOD & WINE magazine, Holland America debuted 23 excursions earlier this year on select cruises in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe that explore food, wine and culture in some of the world's hottest gastronomic locales. The new tours will be added throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada & New England.

During these exclusive Holland America tours, guests take hands-on cooking classes with top restaurant chefs, go on culinary walking tours, visit wineries, sample authentic street food, explore local hideaways and more. For example, wine lovers will delight in the Bay of Fundy, Grand Pre & Winery tour in Halifax, where guests enjoy a scenic drive to the Bay of Fundy, known for some of the most extreme tides in the world, and visit the Grand National Historic Site, a 17th-century French
settlement. Then it’s on to the Annapolis Valley, known as the “new Napa of the North,” for a wine tasting at the Lightfoot & Wolfville Vineyards.

“We’ve expanded our exclusive FOOD & WINE tours due to their overwhelming popularity, as food is a universal language that connects travelers with the cultures they visit in a deeply immersive way,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “We’re excited to add this special tour program in several new locations so our guests can discover the diverse flavors of the many different places we visit through these unique and authentic experiences.”
