Summer is right around the corner, and along with it comes one of our favorite pastimes — summer road trips! And what better way to celebrate your summer road trip than with a food tour? Luckily, we can help suggest a quite a few that’ll help give your road trip a boost of delicious foodie fun.

Chicago Food Planet‘s founder, Shane Kost, is also founder of Food Tour Pros — a company that’s helped provide guidance to many other food tour companies around the world. From as close as Naperville, Illinois to as far as Bangkok, Thailand, Shane has provided insights and learnings from his experience launching Chicago Food Planet in 2006 (which is currently the nation’s largest seasonal food tours company) to assist other people in launching successful food tour businesses of their own in cities around the world — including the ones listed below. Cool, right?
