The “Eat and Drink Like a European” Difference

If you are looking for a generic trip speeding through Europe crammed on a bus with 50 other tourists… you’ve come to the wrong place! 

We are not your average Europe tour company! We’re that special travel company you’ve been looking for. The one that goes the extra mile to make sure you have an authentic European travel experience.  You won’t feel like a tourist with us;  you and your small group of co-travellers will be temporary locals.  We provide the best planned, best led, most fulfilling and enjoyable tour experiences available.  Our tours are designed for people with enquiring minds, a desire to learn about and appreciate Europe, and a hunger and thirst for “the good life”.   

Our Promise to You!

  • knowledgeable, passionate, and friendly guides
  • imaginative, well-paced and carefully balanced itineraries
  • appetizing regional food and drink at authentic local restaurants
  • one-of-a-kind experiences with food and drink producers who are passionate about their products
  • comfortable privately-chauffeured transportation,
  • centrally-located pleasant boutique hotels
  • small groups of like-minded travelers
  • up front, inclusive pricing and outstanding value for your precious vacation time and money

Contrary to attitudes that are unfortunately widespread in the travel industry, we see our clients as intelligent individuals who deserve respect and courtesy at all times.  Our goal is to build relationships with our travelers – we want to hear how your trip was, we want you to recommend us to your friends, and mostly, we want you to join us again!

Eat and Drink Like a European truly provides the ultimate European travel experience.  Try us out; I think you’ll agree.

Craig Bresett, Owner and Chief Tour Director


Our Guarantee

Each tour is guaranteed to include a small, friendly group, (average group size 12), a spacious, comfortable chartered bus, and an experienced tour director who is also a passionate historian and an advocate for authentic regional culture, cuisine, and drink. Your days will be filled with amazing tours and attractions led by your tour director, and local guides when appropriate. There’s no fear of hidden costs – if it is listed on the itinerary it is included in the price. Guaranteed.

You’ll enjoy stays at boutique hotels — “Eat and Drink Like a European”  chooses smaller, family-run hotels where possible, typically in the 3-4 star category, that are, most importantly – centrally located in the part of town you came to see. All rooms have private ensuite bathrooms with a shower or bathtub. Most rooms are doubles. And with most stops being two night stays you can unpack and get comfortable. Breakfasts are always included. Note that because we stay in characteristic European hotels, breakfasts will reflect local preferences (i.e. continental style in France, heartier fare in Germany). Of course many lunches & dinners are included – these are some of the highlights of the tours!  See individual tour itineraries for details.

About Us

“Eat and Drink Like a European” was founded on the simple principle that life should be experienced beyond the ordinary.  Our company exists to provide incredible travel adventures to those who share this principle.

Join us on a voyage beyond the ordinary!

Craig enjoys hiking with his dogs Aurora and Foofie near his home in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, buying and not quite finishing interesting European history books, cooking, going to the opera with his wife Lisamarie and punk rock gigs with his daughter Magdalena, and trying new beers, especially if they are from Belgium. He loves skiing with his daughter Kasmira and playing ice hockey with his son Jude. Craig is the owner and Chief Tour Director of “Eat and Drink Like a European”.
