Explorica provides breakfast and dinner daily on all tours unless otherwise indicated on your itinerary. Lunch is only included on Greek cruises, on Costa Rica and China tours, and when otherwise indicated in the program description. On all other tours, participants have lunch breaks and free-time to explore their own local food options.
European-style breakfast is offered every morning and includes juice, cereal, bread (like toast, croissant, or pastry), and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, as well as either cheese, eggs, yogurt, fruit or meat.
Explorica chooses restaurants that appeal to students while also providing them with a taste of local cuisine. By providing both familiar fares with regional foods, students are given the opportunity to try new things without inducing culture shock.
Notify your travel consultant and tour director of any travelers in your group with dietary restrictions or food allergies. We will notify all hotels and restaurants in advance and do our best to work with you to meet the dietary needs of these individuals on a case-by-case basis. Unfortunately, we cannot absolutely control every dining experience and so we recommend that travelers with dietary restrictions pack some safe snacks to have as a back-up.
All breakfasts and dinners are included in the tour fee so it is not possible to refund the money for any meals you choose to miss.
