Five culinary adventures that put a new spin on the traditional food tour.

Ho Chi Minh City: See (and taste) Saigon from the back of a vintage scooter with Vietnam Vespa Adventures. Kicking off at sundown, the four-hour drive digs into the city’s finest street food, from chili-rubbed crab to sizzling banh xeo pancakes.

Paris: Unravel the mysteries of Paris à la Inspector Clouseau in a chauffeured Citroën 2CV. Your retro ride, courtesy of Experience Paris, will whisk you away on a tour of iconic patisseries to sample pains au chocolat and brioches au sucre.

Mendoza, Argentina: The best way to take in Argentina’s stunning wine country? On horseback. The itinerary with Mendoza Holidays: an equestrian trek through 20 acres of grapevines and olive groves, followed by a traditional meal of empanadas and Malbec at a picturesque winery.

San Juan Islands, Washington: No need to dress up: Savor Seattle Food Tours explores the Pacific Northwest’s foodie and outdoorsy sides. Kayaking the San Juan Channel, you’ll forage for sea asparagus and other briny treats to accompany a locally sourced beachside cookout.

Copenhagen: Lifelong local Mike Sommerville of Bike Copenhagen with Mike steers guests to the trendiest tables in this cycling-mad city. You’ll taste Danish hot dogs at the new Copenhagen Street Food market, and imperial oatmeal stout at micro-brewery Mikkelie.
