What a wonderful way to spend your Saturday afternoon. Or a Monday, Wednesday or any other day. We as gourmet chickies, foodies and Utrecht lovers could not imagine a better day. Marieke of Smaakmakers Utrecht took us on a culinary bike tour. What a joy! Cycling through the most beautiful city in the country, making pit stops at the best spots in Utrecht with good company.
Culinary bike tour through Utrecht
The concept is simple, but oh so nice. When she was traveling in Asia and did food tours, Marieke figured out that it was also very suitable for here in Utrecht. Did someone already offer food tours? No, and so they started Smaakmakers. And with success! Several restaurants have joined the tour; let them surprise and inspire you.

We stopped at Kantien first, for a very special frikandel special. Curious? Join the tour! At Instock we were treated to a delicious dish and they explained their lovely ‘no waste’ concept. We were pleased to be able to taste rescued vegetables. The next stop was a total surprise for me: Goesting. And I will tell a little secret… The backyard is a peaceful haven! Piatto was our last stop, the service and quality here never disappoint. We ended a lovely tour at this sweet Ibiza-like place.
Marieke guides you throughout the tour, so you do not have to think about where you are cycling or when you are expected to go somewhere. Even if you get a flat tyre, Marieke will come to the rescue! (This really happened!) You can also book tours without a guide, and start exploring with directions and a map. Ready Set Go! Book a tour at smaakmakerstour.nl.
