About us

“There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” George Bernard Shaw

Gastroutes is a specialist operator that specialises in gastronomy tours to India. Travel for food is an exciting way to understand a destination, be it an unpretentious street food, humble home cooked meal, pompous fine dine experience, all of it excites.

At Gastroutes, we very carefully craft (not draft) our Eatneraries (not itineraries) and curate very exclusive culinary experiences to be offered as a major part of our tours. ‘Gastronomy’ is the only subject we work on and our tours are not only well researched and well planned, but include, local experiences, enriching interactions and of course lots of food.     

We are a group foodies by heart, most of us are chefs by training and others are tour operators by learning, but all a long out-of-box work experience. Gastroutes is a result of our passion for food and food in all forms. 

Our parent company Tornos has been in the trade since 24 years and has been known for offering niche, well researched and curated tours. Food travel being one of its forte, Gastroutes is a highly focused pan-India brand of Tornos that caters exclusively in the domain of gastronomy to special-interest, discerning travellers, looking for experiencing India through its culinary fabric.

There is no cuisine as, Indian Cuisine. Cuisine of India is regional and multiple within the region as well, given this diversity in food, we just cannot have specialised in all of it, so at Gastroutes we have specialists drawn form different regions of India to cater to this most diversified subject that actually requires micro-specialisation to conduct tours within the domain of gastronomy.

We are always happy to talk to you for anything and everything to do with Indian food.
