Salem Food Tours Awarded 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate
SALEM – Our favorite culinary tourism company Salem Food Tours recently announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award which celebrates excellence in hospitality. The distinction is only given to companies that consistently achieve great reviews on the site, including accommodations, eateries and attractions, and continually deliver a superior customer experience.
“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is an incredible honor” said Salem Food Tours founder and owner Karen Scalia. “We thank each and every one of our wonderful customers for their kind and thoughtful reviews. The accolade is an incredible vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”
“We also sincerely thank our incredible Tour Partners: the Salem shops, restaurants, historic homes, and local purveyors who make our City a delicious destination,” Karen added.
In its third year, Salem Food Tours shares the growing resources the city offers as a top dining destination for the North of Boston region. With every step taken, her tours navigate participants to many of the city’s beautiful sites to learn a bit of history with several tastings at the community’s best food shops and restaurants.
Each tour is unique with a rotating set of partners with all tours including at least five stops consisting of both restaurants and shops. In three and a half hours, you’ll cover approximately two miles of non-continuous walking, just enough to work off the calories consumed along the way!
When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. They use a proprietary algorithm that takes into account the quality, quantity, and recency of reviews as well as the business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index.
