On this self-guided food tour, sample the best of Basel’s food scene at establishments hand-picked by a local food expert. Start at the first restaurant whenever you like, though it's recommended to start early to get the most out of the tour. Visit five different sites, enjoy a drink or snack at each, and soak up the ambiance without the chatter of a guide. You call the shots on how long you spend at each place.
  • Explore independently and spend as much time as you like at each place
  • Enjoy an included drink or snack at each stop
  • Dine at authentic restaurants selected by a local food expert
  • Start the tour at a time that suits you

Don't waste your time going on this tour
, Sep 2021
Total waste of time. We visited two places. The first was very nice. Had a cup of coffee and a slice of pound cake. We were served in the back patio, which was very nice. The second place was a store which is geared towards no waste/recycling. We were each given a small jar and could fill it with nuts, candy, or anything else in the store. It really is for locals to purchase things and bring back their jars to refill. Not sure this should have been on a food tour for tourists. The third place was closed and didn't open until 2:00. We were doing this food tour in the morning and were not going to wait around until 2:00. It was a very long walk to the fourth place so we skipped it. If you are going to go on a food tour, save yourself some hassle and go with a professional guide.

Dear Alan, we are sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy the whole experience of our FoodTour. The FoodTour is designed as a self-guided walking tour, giving tourists the opportunity to get to discover Basel’s favourite small local gems, as well as more popular and beloved establishments. We recommend people to start at 11 am, as the third place does not serve hot food between 2 and 6 pm (which means that it is open before 2 am). Starting at the third place, you can reach the fourth place within 10 to 15 minutes by foot. You also have the option to travel by public transport, which is free for guests who stay overnight, or rent an e-bike for just CHF 20 a day. Warm regards Aline from Basel Tourism

We enjoyed to see parts of the town we wouldn’t have seen without this tour. Every shop, bakery, cafe was special and recommendable.

Basel - ein multikulturelles Miteinander

Die freundliche Begrüssung und die kurze Einführung zur Food Tour in der Bäckerei Kult - Elsi trug für einen gelungenen Start bei. Die zweite Destination „unverpackt“ war sehr interessant. Viel Erfolg für Basel2030! Bei der dritten Station konnten wir uns kulinarisch verwöhnen lassen - Herzlichen Dank! Der Abschluss bei Hejkoh passt leider nicht zur Food Tour, deswegen haben wir vier Sterne vergeben.
