The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) award-winning family of brands including Insight Vacations, Red Carnation Hotels, Contiki, Trafalgar, Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection, and Evan Evans have announced their global partnership with VizEat, the innovative and immersive food experience platform, bringing travelers together by offering unique culinary experiences with their 22,000 local hosts in 110 countries. In 2014, the VizEat app was first launched in Paris and it has now become the world’s most popular meal-sharing platform, with guests being welcomed into a global network of hosts’ homes while making authentic connections with both locals and travelers.
TTC’s travel brands will be able to connect their guests to these VizEat hosts, who are trained chefs and home cooks, where they will share their delicious meals and learn about new cultures with other travelers and foodies from across the globe. They will sample regional specialties and traditional cuisine in unique locations with a relaxed ambiance. Travelers can enjoy a pasta-making class in Rome, embark on an interactive market tour in Barcelona, indulge in a wine and cheese tasting party in Paris, or join a Tuscan chef’s table and sample gastronomic delicacies.
“Our partnership with VizEat will enable our guests from across our 30+ TTC travel brands to discover amazing and fun culinary experiences in each destination that we visit, while also interacting with the local people and creating unforgettable memories,” said Brett Tollman, CEO of TTC. “We share similar values by offering experiential experiences and meeting like-minded travelers from around the world.”
Beginning this summer, TTC’s guests will have an opportunity to enjoy these immersive food experiences on selected trips or as optional experiences, with the assistance of their knowledgeable Travel Directors and Tour Managers.
“We’re thrilled to announce this global partnership with TTC and this marks a great opportunity for more travelers worldwide to have the chance to uncover immersive culinary experiences with locals wherever they go,” said Jean-Michel Petit, CEO of VizEat. “It’s a great match for both of us: the TTC family of brands plans the most memorable experiences for their clients, and VizEat is aligned in this search for unforgettable and authentic moments.”
