For a vivid look at local culture, just follow the crowd to the market


Colorful market cultures are as different as the vivid souks of Morocco and the savory, fragrant village squares of Provence. The markets we visit on these culture and walking tours, family vacations, and food and wine tours are deeply ingrained in the locals’ everyday life. And when you visit a market with a local friend (your Classic Journeys guide) you receive an experience most travelers never have the pleasure of encountering. For example, when you stumble upon a hairy red fruit in Luang Prabang or a slippery calamari in Lecce, you’ll be able to understand the purpose of these peculiar items – and perhaps enjoy it for dinner that same evening!
