Why Food Tours Make Great Team Events
We’ve all been there – an awkward game of bowling, followed by an even more awkward happy hour with our co-workers. It’s not that you don’t like them or want to hang out with them. It’s just that it feels a bit forced on team events. Especially when you do the same thing every. single. time.
And please, not Dave & Buster’s again!
Food tours are here to save the day! At Discover Richmond Tours, we are big believers in food tours as group events. What’s not to love? There’s delicious food, entertaining stories, someone else to tell you where to go so you don’t all stand around waiting for someone to make a decision, and did we mention delicious food? We’re obviously biased, but here are a few reasons why we think a food tour should be your team’s next outing!
Of course there’s food; it’s a food tour! When you participate in one, you get to taste something delicious from a variety of different restaurants. And you can be sure the restaurants want to impress you with one of their best dishes. Where else can you find multiple chefs competing to make the most delicious thing you taste in a single afternoon?
Try Something New
Most people have never even been on a food tour before, and for them, the entire experience is new (lucky them!). But even those who have are sure to discover something they haven’t before. Whether it’s a new restaurant or a new dish at an old favorite restaurant, we’re willing to bet we can serve up something you’ve never had.
Spend Just The Right Amount Of Time Outdoors
You spend all your working time in an office that may or may not even have windows. Don’t choose to spend your outside-the-office time inside! On a food tour, we stroll the streets of fascinating neighborhoods, pop in and out of restaurants, and pause outside to learn about the area’s history. It’s the perfect mix of time spent outside, and time spent inside to cool off or warm up (depending on the weather).
Avoid Awkward Pauses
Those awkward moments when you don’t know what to talk about with your coworkers once you’re outside the office? Those don’t exist on food tours! Rather than being left alone with your colleagues at yet another happy hour, you have a guide to keep everyone engaged, laughing, and moving along from one stop to the next.
Our tour guides are personable, knowledgable, and ready to lead you on a culinary adventure!
Enjoy Being Entertained
Food may be the main attraction, but that’s not all a food tour offers. Your tour guide will be prepared with interesting and entertaining stories of the very neighborhood you’ll be visiting. Even history buffs are likely to learn something new about their city!
