Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. On Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.

I’m taking a break from Europe for just a second and traveling to the other side of the world for the next episode of Locals Know. Back to South America in Peru. I got to dive into the culture of Lima while on the coast, but up in the mountains, things were a little different.

Before or after you head to Machu Picchu (which you should!!), you need to spend some time trying to catch your breath in the charming town of Cusco. And Liliana from Cusco Urban Adventures is more than happy to introduce you to some out-of-town ruins and the bustling San Pedro Market. She got us into the city and out into the country and gave us a real sense of both modern and ancient life on this awesome tour.

What’s not to love about Paris? It’s grand, romantic, and incredibly delicious. While you got to come here and get views of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, you also want to get in to some of the hips neighborhood where locals hang out and that’s what I did on the Gourmet Marais tour.

On the newest episode of Locals Know, I get a taste of the classics with Paris Urban Adventures in the historic and hip neighborhood of Marais with my local guide Adele. She takes us shopping along the vibrant streets for baguettes, meats, pastries, and of course, wine. We discover this is where the cool kids have always hung out and after experiencing this tour, I totally understand why.

I’ve been to Lisbon more than any other city in Europe. I have truly been seduced by the beauty, the food, and the people of this great historic capital. But it wasn’t until I took the Experience Lisbon Walk that I really got under the skin of this city.

My guide Sofia from Lisbon Urban Adventures uncovered all the secret spots from a local pastry shop to a miradouro with killer views to the best seafood restaurant on the other side of the river.  It’s featured on the latest episode of Locals Know. And after watching this video over and over again, I can’t wait to visit Lisbon one more time and experience it the way only a local can.

Somewhere back in my lineage, some of my ancestors came to New York from Hungary. Unfortunately, their stories and where they came from in the country has been lost to time. But when I visited Budapest last summer, I certainly felt a strong connection to the energy and the history of the city. I can’t imagine it had anything to do with all that goulash and strudel.

Food obviously plays a big role in the Bites & Sights Food tour that is featured on the newest episode of Locals Know. For this episode, Livia from Budapest Urban Adventures is my guide who helps me navigate both the Hungarian language and its wide reaching cuisine. We wind our way from the historic Central Market to a Communist-themed bar into the old Jewish quarter and to a traditional Hungarian strudel house. Of course, stopping to sightsee and eat along the way.

One of my favorite cities in the world recently suffered a horrific terrorist attack. When these terrible things happen, sometimes tourism dips. But we have to resist giving into fear and letting the terrorists win. That’s why it’s more important than ever to go visit Barcelona. They need us and if you didn’t know, we need them.

The latest episode of Locals Know explores this beautiful city through its world-famous cuisine. Dago from Barcelona Urban Adventures knows the traditional tapas bars in areas like Poble Sec and the Raval that are away from the tourist heavy neighborhoods. From pintxos to tinto de verano to croquetas, we take a tasty and eye-opening Tapas Tour “en el Barrio”.

Most people think of Athens and they think of history – the Acropolis, Parthenon, and other ancient ruins. And when you visit Athens, you have to see those. But the city is full of modern secrets that is difficult to discover on your own.

On the next episode of Locals Know, award winning guide Nikoleta from Athens Urban Adventures, took me to secret coffee shops, through alleys decked with street art, up to a surprising rooftop bar, and around the modern side of this very vibrant city all while revealing the Bohemian Tales of the City.
