“The Food Tour Pros Course is a must for anyone planning a food tour business. I took the Course at the end of April and was up and running on July 1st that same year. The Courses cover everything you need to know, and lots of stuff you didn’t think you needed to know. Just the material is 2” thick in the Course books, and are worth its weight in gold. I have referred to them many times since!”

Joe Haedrich

“We did ourselves a big favor by investing in this Course. We avoided having to spend valuable time and money learning lessons the hard way through trial and error. Food Tour Pros hands you the road map and the owner’s manual, but it was up to us to drive the car. I am certain that we got up and going a lot faster and are now in a more stable position to grow our business.”
